Portfolio Page...Contest! CLOSEDPortfolio Page...Contest!Portfolio Page...Contest! CLOSED by lolly
**UPDATE** The contest is now closed and winners will be announced Monday!
So as many of you may recall, we promised to add a special portfolio page to subscribers accounts? Well, we are working on getting those rolling out but we have come to a stumbling block trying to decide exactly how they should look. And hey, since you guys will be the ones using them we decided you should be the ones who get to choose what they look like. But first
For those unfamiliar with the concept I shall explain. The portfolio page will be a page that has a space for personal information, contact information, and the ability to place deviations on them of your choosing. The deviations will have no commentary on them, and a description will be optional. You may also pick and choose what deviations go on them. Primarily with things like this you would use it to showcase your strongest work.
The page itself will be username.deviantart.com/portfolio

Merry Litmas--Results!Now that the holiday season is past us, and our resolutions for a new year are already being tested (and in most cases, given up on) it's time to reflect on the joy and cheer that was the year of 2006.

Phishing, Account Security and Who to TrustThroughout last year and even now, just a few weeks into 2007, the staff has had to assist people in reclaiming their accounts after some carelessness allowed someone else to take control.Phishing, Account Security and Who to Trust by realitysquared
The systems we have here at deviantART will keep your account as secure as you allow it to be. I say this because the weakest link in account security is often the user and their habits or their willingness to trust someone else with their private account information.
One of the biggest problems with account security is often a weak password. A weak password is one easily guessed by someone who knows you, or knows your habits. For example, if you are an obvious fan of the Harry Potter series of books and movies then using the names of the characters or terms from the books would be considered a weak password which someone could easily guess in a few minutes time.
The best password consists of ten to twelve letters and numbers in a random jumble such as gqo106nsgt3
