I'm spending the weekend at the Global Game Jam at UBC in Vancouver. If anybody else is here come say hi! I'm the sort of red-head in a doll divine jacket XD
Russian translation - SOLVEDI see that I have a lot of visitors from Russia, but I don't have any submitted quiz translations.
The Game of Thrones Scene Maker will be released shortly, and I'm just inserting the quiz.. so I thought I'd put out a last minute call for any fluent Russian speakers?
Or do you perhaps have a friend who speaks fluent Russian and could be coerced? Hehehe...
In other news, thank you SOOOOO much everyone for your translations!!!
I got so many that I can't squeeze them all in, so I have to go by the largest numbers represented among my users. Russian is just a huge gap though right now.
EDIT: Yay, I gots one, thank you everyone!!! ^_^
Game of Thrones quiz translation and random stufI tried replying to some profile comments. Got as far as summer of last year. Stopped there since any later and people start to reply with "Wow, late reply much?" XD
There were a couple of repeating themes. I'll try and summarize:
- "Can we collaborate?"
- Sorry guys, I'm all booked up at the moment!
- "How do I save dolls to my gallery?"
- You can't upload dolls yet, you can only save the few dolls that have the built-in saving feature. Otherwise http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sXPXQcgfZ4
- "The Viking Maker's not working"
- Is this still happening? I can't remember if I fixed it or not..
- "This person is making adoptables with your games"
- That's ok.
Azalea and I are collaborating on a Game of Thrones update to the Tudors. You can check progress here: http://www.dolldivine.com/behind-the-scenes.php
There's gonna be a House Sorting Quiz in the game. If you want to see it in your lan
Girls and GamingAs an aside, I'm tired of Asher-Bee not winning every contest she enters, dammit (like should be happen in a perfect world). If you agree, fave her contest entry: http://pixelledanddead.deviantart.com/art/Split-Mind-201773149
So I'm back from the Game Developers Conference. One thing that was very apparent is that there are very few women in game development. Like, very few. I finally found a group of women at one point and tried to chat them up and it turned out they worked for the conference >_
Game Developers ConferenceI'm off tonight driving down to San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference!
Will any of you be there? Come find me and say hi!
(Sorry, still behind on answering comments. Don't worry, I'll get to it!)
Exciting News!I've had the privilege to meet an amazing web developer who's interested in working with me. A ways back I was thinking of adding stuff to the site like comments and polls, but through an external site. Well, this guy can program anything from scratch... ANYTHING O_O
So, let's let our imaginations run wild!
...in a world where ANYthing's possible...
Have you ever finished a doll and thought "Boy, I sure wish that now I could... [____]"?
...what were you thinking?...
Have you ever loaded the site and thought "Gee, I sure wish I knew... [____]"?
...what were you wondering?...
Have you ever gotten frustrated and thought "Grrr, I wish Doll Divine had the [____] feature, the way that [_____].com does!"
...what seemed to be missing?...
I don't want it to be THE next social networking site. But, I want it to be the ultimate experience for those that love making dolls. Please, sit back, close your eyes, and picture logging into the wickedest doll site ever. What would it offer you? Let me know
Adoptable Rules :)(a more official journal entry)
YES, you can sell Doll Divine-made adoptables for points! (games with a Doll Divine logo in them)
Link back to the game you used on dolldivine.com, and (where applicable) to the artist's deviantArt page (basically, to all links appearing within the game).
If you're making Anthro Maker adoptables, give setsuna22 a shout because she'd love to see them! (note me if you're an artist and wanna be added to this list~)
Please feel free to link people to this journal entry if drama erupts hahaha.

Thank you everyone so much for participating! I had a lot of fun looking at the entries and hope to do this again next year!
Thank you to all my co-judges for volunteering their time!
PS. let me know if I failed to send you deserved points
Contest Closed =DThank you everyone! I'm having a blast checking and re-checking the entries
What happens now: I must confer with my co-judges, then tally everything up. This might take a week or two so sit tight! And please don't remove your entry from the group folder!!!
Once that's done, I shall announce the winners on my journal and distribute all the points (including the 10 that each entry gets)
Best of luck!
One day left for the contest!Please make sure that your entry is in this folder: http://doll-divine-lovers.deviantart.com/gallery/26799747
If it isn't, check your messages for a pending approval, and if you don't have one, submit it there or msg here or note me. I tried to submit everyone's but I am notoriously absent minded and quite a dA n00b so I probably missed somebody.
Again, the final judging will happen from the http://doll-divine-lovers.deviantart.com/gallery/26799747 folder so your entry must make it there!
I'm not gonna be super stringent with the deadline because I know people are in different time zones or might have uploading issues, but do try to have it submitted by November 1st midnight Pacific Standard Time. So, if you submit it by Halloween in your time zone you will be fine.
Also, you might have noticed that ads have disappeared from dolldivine.com. Google sent me some automated message that I'm tricking people into clicking on ads and told me to make changes (t
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
