Past EmotionsTurn off my mindPast Emotions by arthaus
And turn on my soul
Away from my thoughts
And into my eyes
Forget this one moment
And we'll last to the end
We'll do it together
From beginning to end
I'm confused about emotions
This happens a lot
I feel so good with you
Beyond anything I've sought
But can you get over
My past that I have
And move on beside me
All I need is your hand
I don't take this situation lightly
Don't think I'm a prick
I'm insecure with emotions
And they're making me sick.
#devart Petition for ChangeI'm a Member in #devart. Before recently I invested a lot of time into the room, I enjoy being there. But of late, I've noticed an increase of blatent rule breaking, spamming and the works. (Or lack of Admin action.) And being a Member, it is my responsibility to at least try to control this to best of my abilities. (Or so I was led to believe). But, having no real power, simply a higher position on the user list, doesn't accomplish much. Sometimes it even causes less, with the rule-breakers knowing we Members have no real power.#devart Petition for Change by A-side-chaos
And yes, we are supposed to go to #MNAdmin to try and grab an MN@ to help. But due to the fact the MN@ have no set schedules, I've seen times where MNBot is the only one in there, or chix0r's in, but she's been idle for 21 hours. Leaving #devart to the dogs.
After some light discussion with other Members and regular visitors to #devart, I've come up with an idea:
Give the Members (after of course filtering a select few out) the ability to kick/ban. Or create a

On December 5, let's give the masked ones their due!
Here is but a small sampling of the kick-ass ninja art on dA:

The cat (or domestic cat, house cat) is a small domesticated carnivorous mammal. It is valued by humans for its ability to destroy vermin. A skilled predator, the cat is known to hunt over 1,000 species for food. Intelligent, the cat can can be trained to obey simple commands, and has been known to teach itself to manipulate simple mechanisms (see cat intelligence).
The trinomial name of the domestic cat is Felis silvestris catus. Its closest pre-domesticated ancestor is believed to be the African wild cat, Felis silvestris lybica. Humans have developed several dozen breeds of cat, in a variety of colors.

Cats use more than one hundred vocalizations and types of body language for communication, incl
