Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS

Originally posted by deathpixie at Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS
For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.

Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.


A public post to update all on the icons

Forgive me for taking so long on these, guys. I have just started feeling the throws of Carpel tunnel in my drawing hand, so my art must slow down exponentially. The icons will take a while, remember, they were free. Just think of it as a surprise when they are done! :3

I'll probably post them in batches because there are so many of you that wanted one. 

Trust me, I AM working on them, it's just going slowly as I am also trying to finish my backlog of commissions at the moment. 

Thanks for understanding!

Free Icon day numero ONE! :3 DONE!

Thanks guys!


I didn't really expect such an awesome turnout! Please continue to donate, this is going to take me a few days to get done! I've got over 100 of ya'll to do! :3 I'll post a journal with all of them once I finish. I'll be sure to open another Free Icon day soon!!!

You read that right, guys. I've decided to do a free icon day!

PLEASE leave a reference of your character or pet, what facial expression you'd like and if you donated! :3

I will reply to your post with your icon once it is finished! :3

There are a few rules that I'd like followed though.

1: I will not do copy-written characters such as pokemon, disney, etc

2. I don't draw people, so please take that into account!

3. I have donation mile markers!

4. If you cannot donate, that's okay! You still get an icon! (it wouldn't be free icon day otherwise? now would it?!)

5. You gotta pimp this out! Twitter, FA, Livejournal, Inkbunny, Facebook, whatever! :3 Pimp this thing out! I would love to get a lot of people doing this! :3

there comes a time

There comes a time in one's life when they count their blessings and praise the higher ups for giving them what they have.

Today I was doing such a thing. I can't believe the friends I have, the family I have gained and the family I was born with... Without all of you this world would be a useless place. Without all of you this place would be a horrid thing.

May you all have a blessed day and may the gods be with you.

-Blessed be
