Since i know it will be an eternity or never when i get a response to my note to the help desk, i just wanted to point out a glitch to the DA staff.

When i went to submit my entry, the timer said i had roughly an hour left. I had refreshed the page too when i was almost done. (shouldn't have needed to anyway)

However, it would not let me submit to that category when i tried. The timer was suddenly at 0. As i was uploading, it said i had close to an hour left. 

This also happened to  SmoochiLuci  You guys owe it to us to accept our entries because of this big error on DAs part.

Attention, attention! This is a very important message. Read thoroughly!

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has just been published, and it is going to substantially threaten DeviantArt's life and future. This deal is dangerous for DeviantArt because of its intellectual property enforcement chapter, whose provisions could destroy this site's mission, which is to "[create] the cultural context for how [art] is created, discovered, and shared," and "to exhibit, promote, and share their works with an enthusiastic, art-centric community." On a larger scale, the TPP would also destroy the careers of nearly every artist who posts works on this site.
The TPP's intellectual property chapter includes provisions that could censor the Internet, endanger online privacy, impose draconian copyright standards, abolish freedom of expression, criminalize whistleblowing, and rob the public domain. Internet service providers could be held liable for hosting copyright infringement, and they could also be forced to become private copyright enforcers, forced to take down, filter, and block content with only a private notice from the copyright holder. So, under the TPP's provisions, DeviantArt could be shut down and its users and staff could be treated like criminals.
The TPP would push for the widespread use of Digital Rights Management software, or DRM, to prevent consumers from tinkering with devices or content for purposes that corporations fear will infringe their copyrights and patents. Consumers could be prevented from unlocking their mobile phones to change telecom carriers, and prevent documentary filmmakers and other artists from breaking encryption on DVDs or sampling online streaming videos, where legal threats could be faced even if the video is created legally. People with visual or reading disabilities could be prevented from changing the formats of books and movies to make them more accessible. Not only unauthorized content, but also unauthorized software, could be blocked under the TPP's digital locks provisions. There is NO EVIDENCE that DRM does much to combat copyright infringement or protect consumers from viruses. All DRM does is suppress companies that promote innovation, criminalize sharing, and hinder and break the Internet and new technologies.

This is an emergency. You need to take action before this extreme pact can be implemented. And if the TPP is implemented, our right to share, modify, and experiment with content and technology could be faced with overly severe restrictions. As such, this site could be brought to its end, once and for all.

You can help stop the TPP by signing the below petition:…

Hi there random deviantartist! I just want to offer you something... a hug. Glomp! Hug Huggle! Tight Hug
You deserve it! Forget all those pansy chains that say you need (insert
number) of hugs to be truly loved, all you need is ONE person to show 
their appreciation for you to know that you are beautiful and of amazing
worth! I just want you to know that no matter what, you are important 
to me, you deserve a smile on your face, and happiness in your heart. 
Have a very, very splendid day/night wherever you are!

Hello Steven!
I see how you try to interact with your community trough the timeline.
This is a good idea.
You need more good ideas to nurture a healthy community/ customer base.

Inform members about changes at least 2 weeks before
• ask all members - not just people who happen to read this journal - what they feel about the state of the platform
be open to the community

To me deviantART is a great place to have meaningful conversations about your art.
I want deviantART to stay.
