Letting off some creative steam, please strap in if I have any active followers. I'm not particularly looking for commentary, just getting some things out.

Be well.

Hey man, its Aaron...from the DA meets that we BOTH stopped going to.

:-| I don't know if you go anymore...but the last time I went Mike was an ass to me, had removed any status of me supporting the group and had put some immature teens in charge of "running" things.

But, that all goes in play of how much he likes those younger ones.

-This whole jark thing is kind of like how when Mike demoted me, got rid of a "leader" it made the group fade away. Kinda of like when you left too. It would have been better had you stayed.

But things can't last forever.

The decision of this site to get rid of jark is a very grave one. I knew the site was going downhill long ago, back around the time of all the modifications to the "print" site and how it didn't really cater to the artists, after the letters I wrote to the Print Administration of the site, things started to change...but the artists on the print site were not allowed to REALLY customize the work or change any layout or make the pages theirs. We still have the "system" where DA takes a huge cut of profits. Way more than other print websites. I might as well go somewhere else with my prints like say, "Club Photo.com" which is basically who DA runs through, no?

So man. Whatever happens through all this, the art will still live, it will just look for a new home because when you have people being fired that OWNED the site and noticed little artists such as myself, enough to give them a daily deviation (the only one I've had) then it's a good thing. I can't tell you how many times spyed ignored my messages, then all the sudden, the changes in my emails happened! It was as if what I had sent him...was what had happened. Without of course, any credit to me.

P.S. I still have the letters.

my thoughts, hotly contested though they may be, are that staff information is just and only for staff. anyone who has chatted w/ me recently knows that i have again and again brought up how i cannot give certain details due to the non-disclosure agreement i signed with deviantART. some staff member violated that. it annoys me that i've been accused of the leak to t52.org by another staff member, but since i didn't do it, well, nothing else i can really do.

the t52 site, while informative for non-staff, shows the disloyalty of staff to the corporation. it also shows some of the internal disharmony inherit in corporations. without specific knowledge of the events detailed on the site, i cannot comment on them.

ya know, angelo could clear everything up by spilling his guts, but he chooses not to. i've also heard that the staff is not legally bound by this imaginary gag order that gets professed so much...

the nda is a legal document; it covers all internal matters.

You are actually right on that thread I created had no apparent purpose nor had sparked any meaningful discussions. But it wasn't my fault you see. It was those who posted on it that were being idiots, and I did look around for what is going on but found no solid explaination. Though I am glad you closed it for me, I was about to go bonkers with all the stupidity that was going on in there...
