Newest Deviations

These are the latest things I have submitted here.


These are not my images, but images that I've found here that I really like.


Scripts & Things

I think I will use this area to list scripts and things that I don't really want as deviations, since they're not really great works of art, just small things that do simple things.

:bulletblue: Move Complaints - Haha sorry, but this is just too stupid and simple to be a deviation. All this does, now, is move the complaints forum up to the top of the forum list for community. Here's the script, works in Firefox and Chrome.

:bulletgreen: Better forum styling - this makes the forums a tad better, well in my opinion anyway. Makes some links normally dark green, blue on hover, and lightens visited links (handy for knowing what you've read before) and it also tightens things up, kills that status forum box, and styles the forum search to look right. Get it here, and install into a new blank Stylish skin.

:bulletblue: Forum - Mark recent - this is based on an old script (…) and it will show the order of comments on a thread, and even let you jump to the latest 5 replies (per page, not per thread) if you hover over the far right of the page. Get it here. Works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletblue: Points Converter -This just puts a converter into your shop menu, and lets you input a points number, or US dollar amount, and it will convert the number into the other "currency" for you. Just note, the shop menu will stay open if you have anything inputted in the boxes. Remove any numbers and mouseout of the menu to make it close back up. Install here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletblue: Normal Deviation Clicks -This keeps dA from loading the "faster" AJAX links, things like, and instead loads the more normal link. What you see when you click links. This solves a bunch of bugs that happen because of the superbrowse way of loading deviations, and I just personally find it a much better way to load deviations. Install it here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletblue: dA Journal - Saved Text - This saves your text from journal to journal so you don't have to copy/paste tags in. It works on your create new journal page, and it will save your text once you hit Publish Entry, or the Update Saved Text button on the bottom right. Works with Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome, install from here.

:bulletpurple: Ignore people in chat rooms without SuperdAmn - this is something that may be useful if you ever don't have SuperdAmn, and just must ignore people. Just open this page and then copy the text in that gray box and bookmark it (or just paste it into the URL of your chat page and hit enter) and when you're on the chats, you can click that bookmarklet to ignore people. Just remember, capitalization is important, and to ignore more than one person, simply put a comma (,) in between the names, with no spaces.

:bulletblue: deviation Background Color - This lets you color the background of deviations pages, which may be useful or preferable to you. You can even save that color so all deviation pages will have your set background color. But, it will only work on pages, not the AJAX #dabc123 type URL's. You can click the title of the deviation to get to the normal URL, or install my script that does this for you above. Install it here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletpurple: Bookmarklet for easy dA embeds - This will let you easily turn videos into the proper dA embed code. Copy the text here and then bookmark it, then click it and paste in your video URL.

:bulletblue: Forum Preview - This lets you preview forum threads. Hover over the eyes to the right of threads to see what the original post is. Get it here works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

Those were the days

I've been seeing my psychologist for a while now, and thinking about my life and the way I think and process thoughts.  That, along with fourteenthstar not being a part of staff anymore has caused me to take a walk through past years and think about how I used to act and think over the years, specifically here.

Here are a few screencaps I found (I thought I had more, but meh) that both amuses me and embarrasses me due to the horrific style and design :lol:

One of my first ID images.

Being excited over 5000 pageviews.  And lol, AIM down in the taskbar.  Take note of the very lackluster site skin, folks ;P

An early forum revamp suggestion I had.

A screencap of some of the extensions and site scripts I used to (and partly still do) use.  I like to customize :B

An early avatar I used, that was far too seizure-causing.

And 69 () pageviews.

So there's some interesting pics there.  I think it's (sometimes) good to think back on what you've done and how you've acted over the years.  One big thing I do now that I never used to do was try and take a look at the perspective of other people while listening to them or seeing how they act.  That's been especially impactful here.  I've been known to have a rather voiceful mouth about a lot of things here over the years (duh), but taking just a few extra seconds to think about the other side of the coin helps take the edge off and see things from the other point of view.  Humans are just not logical creatures.  Or rather, our logic is wired based on our own personal lives and differs from person to person.  We do things that only make sense because our brains are wired that make it so that thing makes sense to us.  So something that makes you go "What the fuck are you thinking?" may seem stupid and makes no sense—to you—but it's completely fine to the other person.  That's not to say that everything a person says or does is fine, but a lot of it can be explained by taking the other perspective.

I've also been taking it one day at a time, to borrow the AA saying.  I've been depressed since my early one-digit years, and I think part of that is due to my habit of role-playing scenes about my life out in my head—getting upset/saddened by them—and just dwindling down to doing nothing productive.  And it's only gotten worse over the years.  I used to be much more active—taking photographs and building things and whatnot.  Now I don't do much other than sit in my room at my computer watching videos or looking at facebook or other (somewhat) meaningless things.  So, screw what the future might bring.  Today I will plan to do something meaningful.  I've recently planned on learning cryptography.   How encryption works and things.  It's a pretty big and complicated topic (with a lot of math, which I suck at), so I'm hoping that I can learn it so it's clear in my head.  I know the basics of things (I listen to Security Now), but always need reminding of the fundamentals.  I might redo my whisper chat script, which encrypts/hides things, but rather badly.  Still sucks you can't use it in #devart, but thems the rules ;P

So, I have that nostalgic feeling with a lot of things, and I plan to start doing some of the things I used to like doing.  After all, there's only so many TV programs and movies I can torrent and watch each day ;)

◄ The deviantART electricjonny ►
I spend most of my time on the forums and chat rooms. I love hitting the forums and having fun there, I usually hang out in the Suggestions forum and Software forum.

You can also find me in the #h3lp and #seniors chat room.

◄ The real life electricjonny ►
My real name is Jon Spence. I'm a 30 year old student studying Television and Digital Media Production. So I know a lot about video and things like that. I started studying photography in high school, and have loved it ever since. I mainly shoot with a Canon PowerShot SX100 IS. My hobbies include taking things apart and experimenting with electronic things, and biking. I like the outdoors and I used to camp a lot.

So art wise, I'm mainly a photographer, but I like to do video compositing too.


Perfect health, or gobs of money?
