Art is Personal
Every day a number of daily deviations are chosen, numerous feature articles are submitted and countless journals of thumbnails published.  Every - single - devious day this happens - community members, volunteers and staff all come together and share in a love of art. It doesn't always go well and sometimes a piece of artwork I adore, strikes the wrong chord with someone else and vice versa but regardless of the message received the artwork achieved the goal of becoming personal and striking an emotion.  There are no rules that state this emotion should always be happy and fluffy. I'm personally inspired by a different kind of image, one that challenges my feelings and ideals and sometimes, ones that make me uncomfortable.  Art is powerful but above all it is personal and after so many years on deviantART, as an artist and staff member, I've seen it time and again in varying ways.
As an artist, my art is very personal.  Every image I create tell

Fingers crossed I have everything fixed up, no more random bugs appearing.
Issues I resolved:
  1. dA changing the OAuth requirements, specifically they wanted a new parameter to be added
  2. My sketchy dev/prod scheme, where I had two git branches, a dev version (viewable on GitHub at, and the production version, which differed from the dev version in the API key that was used. Now everything is consolidated on the dev branch.
  3. My build system - now it's mostly properly set up. No more pulling from GitHub, building, manual futzing around with the Auth configuration file (remember, separate branches between dev and prod, and my prod branch not being available on the internet), and manually copying everything over to my distribution server. Now it's all automated. Thanks Jenkins!

If you were affected, sorry about the wait.
