President in Two Years?
Still can't decide which American party to vote for? Perhaps this peek into an alternate reality will influence some thought. :P

CEA UPDATE 20082409: Clarifying Mature Content
Clarifying Mature Content Guidelines; Nudity and Erotic Work
Over the years we have been functioning with a set of Mature Content guidelines which have been extremely general and open to a great amount of interpretation. With recent reporting behaviors demonstrated by members of the community I believe it is time that we refined the general set of guidelines by publishing the more specific set of circumstances which are available to the staff members who review the reports. By making these more specific guidelines available we hope that the community in general will better understand what requires a Mature Content tag and which will also provide more consistent voluntary tagging of works and more accurate reporting of works which should be tagged but were not at the time of submission.
This article specifically addresses nudity and erotic works where confusion and indecision is most dominant and where we are currently seeing the highest percentage of inaccurate deviation reporti

dArama - ISSUE ONE - Love.
The dynamic between core staff, volunteer staff, and the community can at times be pure quality dArama.
It's worth noting that for years I've worked pretty hard to remain neutral on community politics. Today, I'm going to shatter that concept.
Needless to say, I am extremely politically aware of the inner workings of the deviantART community. I read *a lot* of journals, comments, forums, chat rooms. I have fake accounts. I spy.
But I don't spend my time talking politics, instead I focus internally at deviantART designing technologies and implementing understandings with core staff to address the issues I see pop up.
It's time to take a moment to be a bit more petty.
The Structure
In the inner workings of our politics exists the soul of deviantART. What is this place? What was it meant to do? What does it do? What could we do better? And it's the politics that give insight into how well the greater plan is running.
There's $core staff who are employees or contractors and work 8+

Epic Logo, Epic Challenge
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ryan Ford, and I am the Creative Director here at deviantART. In my position, I manage a global team of extremely talented designers, and collectively we are responsible for designing most everything that represents deviantART in any way, shape, or form. This includes the site layout, deviantWEAR, and of course our brand.

Over the past few months, we've been working on a rebranding of deviantART, and you may have seen the fruits of our labor slowly taking shape throughout the site in a variety of forms. I'd like to take this opportunity to get you, the community, involved in the understanding of what

A sunny day in the park.  There is a single bench CENTRE  stage.  GOD is sitting on the LEFT side of the bench.  He has long, white hair and a long, white beard, and is wearing a simple white robe.  He is reading a newspaper.  Enter PETER from the RIGHT.   He is wearing black pants, leather shoes, a white shirt and a garish, comical tie.  He is carrying a paper bag.  PETER sits on the bench next to GOD, setting his bag next to him.  He folds his hands and admires the weather.
PETER.  Beautiful weather today.
GOD [focusing on his newspaper]. Mm-hm.
PETER. [Extending his hand] The name's Peter.
GOD [shaking PETER's hand]. God.
[GOD returns his attention to his newspaper.]
PETER. Um… God?
GOD.  Yes?
PETER. Not to be rude, but… your name is God?
GOD. I am God.  Or at least I was God.
PETER. I… see.
GOD. You don't believe me.
PETER. Would you?
GOD. No.  But it doesn't matter whether or not you believe in me.

Harper Collins + Internet = Writers Win
Today marks the public opening of an online talent seeking / gathering site by HarperCollins, a publishing house with dozens of imprints whose credits include work by Neal Stephenson, Michael Crichton, William Gibson, Neil Gaiman, Paulo Coelho, Lemony Snicket, Clive Barker, Michael Chabon, Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing, and heaps more.
It seems the colossal publisher is embracing the trend of technology and decentralized popularity in art. Their site authonomy, fresh out of private beta, uses a peer review and recommendation system to find the cream of the internet-lit crop, which they hope is tasty enough to publish, like, for realz.
From the site:
If you’re a writer, authonomy is the place to show your face – and show off your work on the web. Whether you’re unpublished, self-published or just getting started, all you need is a few chapters to start building your profile online, and start connecting with the authonomy community.
And if you’
