We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
What's the fucking point of making a weft tutorial if it's going to fall apart the moment you pull it??? I sincerely hope beginners don't follow her tutorials. Sarah you are two steps away from getting your own thread. Jesus christ her wig detangling advice is horrible. You can use fabric softener to soak it overnight to soften up the wefts and then brush it out gently the next day after its dried. Sarah is taking a brush and starting at the top by yanking the tangles out. That's how you fuck up a wig, all you're doing is pulling out the fibers and ruining the wefts!
I know as much because it's in my field of work. Web developing is as frustrating as is it hard, and there isn't a single person on god's green earth who would even think about doing it for free. I would volunteer to help with coding, but unfortunately I am ass at writing lines of code. I want to make it clear that even if you yourself are empathetic towards Nyx and know her on a personal level, the rest of us don't. The only time we ever interact with her is when she pops in randomly, and then she's gone again. With that said, we don't have as much trust in her as you do. She hadn't been online in months until the latest outage happened, she never told anybody "oh btw I'm going to be out for a bit" or "cloudflare is being a bitch" we had nothing to go off of and we all sat here waiting for the end to come. There's no line of communication between her and us (the users) and believe me, we've ALL tried to get her attention and various points in time only to get no response in return. That reflects badly on her because to us it appears like she got up and left us with this mess, and we have to clean it up whether we want to or not. It's her irresponsible behavior that makes people upset. Nyx is guilty of dodging our questions, giving vague responses, and her attitude has offended others who have looked to her for answers. (inb4 'lmao triggered grow up') I'm not demanding her to give us every little detail of her personal life in regards to why she's been away, but she at least owes the all of us a good explanation. Or just a post about what's going on "behind the scenes"?
We should not be accepting the site going down every month without warning as normal. Bottom line. "Host issues" could be anything. Are we under attack? Is the host going under? Is the bill late? Is it coding? Is it something legal? Users have a right to know, and doubly so for those who are either out of the loop or aren't in the discord (which is a fortress now because nobody can get in it). It shouldn't have to be OUR responsibility to deliver messages and updates if they do come, it shouldn't have to be OUR responsibility to plug the holes up on a sinking ship, and we absolutely shouldn't be ok with the site potentially going down forever, whether it's due to "host issues" or otherwise. Nyx may be busy but this entire website is her responsibility, she made that choice when she became the new admin. Yet it took a team effort to get her attention when the site went down earlier this month and she still hasn't said a single word to the people here. We are upset, and we have a right to feel that way. There are way more issues going on with the site itself than I can rattle off right now, but the main one is the fact that the site keeps going down randomly and nobody knows why.
Hiring an experienced web developer could run a really high bill. Depending on the person's hourly rates, you could be looking at potentially hundreds or thousands of dollars. The average is around 60$ an hour. PULL needs a total overhaul, which could cost even more. PULL's structure is like an old tree; It sprouted long ago and was cared for by a person who put love into it so that we could eat the fruits from its branches, but after many years the person who planted it stopped coming to care for it. Now it's rotted hollow and constantly at risk of toppling over at any moment. It would be easier to hire a person to come and chop the tree down and plant a new seed than to hire a gardener to try and fix it while it's already dying.
tldr update since PULL has been down for a fucking month Stephanie is still selling her shit on ebay, but instead of her pins she's now trying to sell vintage nazi coins
She still hasn't refunded the kickstarter backers from her Games kickstarter, and since her Pokefarm kickstarter is still down we can safely say she got hit by Nintendo's lawyers and she was blowing hot air by saying it was fake. Anybody who "bought" preorders for the Pokefarm pins through her site have been scammed.
Her domain is up for sale, we might see another rebranding soon
I'm trying to gather info, but there's a lot of misinformation and dumb kids on twitter impersonating her. Anybody here in the UK convention scene see her set up shop?
I forgot to mention, but it's very important for those archiving!
IF YOU'RE USING WAYBACK... 1. You cannot navigate the archive the same way you'd use PULL. That means if you want to see the next page of a thread, you must type in the URL into the archive each time otherwise it will redirect you to PULL (and will continue to do so even if the site is down). To navigate an archive, type this at the end of the URL: /?page=[NUMBER YOU WANT] without the brackets. 2. If you save a thread OP, please save the link to it! There's a difference between saving the OP and saving it when you're bouncing between pages. They save as two different archives, not under the same archive sadly. ex. https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/topic/2500-reputation-feedback/ https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/topic/2500-reputation-feedback/?page=1 These will show up as two different archives, so if you look for one and it doesn't show up, try step 1.
IF YOU'RE USING ARCHIVE TODAY... 1. Archive Today does not save spoilers. Threads with heavy amounts of info under spoilers can't be opened on the archive. Use Wayback to save those instead.
Took them long enough. But she's kind of... nonchalant about it? She just lost 13 years of art work including all of her best sfw art that she's known for yet she's still posting art and replying to her patrons with smiles. Her attitude is kind of weird? Wouldn't she be sad over losing the source of her fame and career? I'm not in her discord so idk if she's said anything about it there but this should be a big deal unless deviantart gave her a short suspension.
Practice privately, use references if you're stumped, check out speedpaints from other artists to see what techniques they use and then try them out for yourself. Lining takes a lot of practice to get to where you want it to be but doesn't require a crazy amount of skill to do, just dedication and patience. For coloring you need to do some homework so study things like color theory and check out those color scheme memes that float around. Experiment and keep practicing until you get where you want to be. Create something that is both comfortable and unique to you, just don't go tracing other art.
I fucking wish I could skip my periods. I used to get them on a schedule, now they're so irregular that I can't track them. I wanna yeet my uterus out, I don't even plan on using it. Tried and tried. While I was dieting my period was unbothered, exercising made it worse like "Oh you want more blood? SAY NO MORE" I can't even have ibuprofen anymore bc of my condition. Before I'd take 800mg and I'd be fine, but my doctor will not prescribe any more because it's both a health risk for me and can be easily abused (US has a major opioid addiction going on). Now I'm on 600 and it does nothing. Naproxen gave me bad side effects so I stopped taking it. My mood swings have never been this crazy, and that's what worries me.
