  1. Hi everyone, It feels odd and sad to write this but I've decided to step down as an admin on TDA. I love TDA - it's been part of my life since 2007 and I loved creating graphics and helping out as a staff mod and then an admin! I was so excited to get that PM! Life has changed a lot for me since I joined - in 2007, I was 14 and just wanted to write Draco Malfoy fanfics. I spent loads of time on TDA through school and uni but now, at 27 (and feeling old!!) I'm a teacher, which has taken over a huge amount of time and tires me out so I'm mostly asleep during any free time I feel like it's very unfair on the other admins to keep popping in and out of existence on TDA! Thank you so much to everyone here, especially those I've modded with over the years! Thank you especially to Susan, who helped me when I was a staff mod, and Enya, who showed me the ropes of being an admin and reassured me when I clicked something I probs shouldn't have in the admin CP!! I'll still be around making graphics from time to time (I've just become obsessed with Life on Mars so am on a screencap hunt!) so I look forward to seeing what's next for TDA! Sorry for the long post ❤️
  2. Here we go! I hope you like it. I had to change the images slightly to make it work, but used ones of Imogen and Rooney from the same photoshoot. Unfortunately, I couldn't make any of Ben work from Narnia, so I found this one. Hope it's okay! Let me know if you'd like any changes :)
  3. Wow! Brilliant issue! Love the theme

    New Admin!

    Congratulations to @Lola., TDA's newest admin! Welcome to the team! ❤️
  5. Thank you so so much for the squee! :loves:

  6. award by golden. May's featured artist is @.amaris! Tomi's lovely graphics are always eye-catching! Her friendly, kind nature can be seen all around TDA, whether she is offering tips, support and advice, or posting a gorgeous new graphic or two. She's a super-active member, too, often posting in requests, challenges and the PYLC thread, where her positivity shines. Congrats, Tomi - enjoy your month in gold!
  7. Oh dear! Thanks for checking :) I'm thinking this is probably one for the coders!
  8. I see you're using the winter skin - has this ever happened on the default skin? :)
  9. Thank you so much for the crit and the squee 😍 ❤️

  11. Sections of the Critique Corner The Critique Corner is split into the sections outlined below - each section focuses on a different area of critique. Graphic Critique+ In this section you can ask for critique with a specific graphic in mind - if you have a banner, chapter image, signature, blend... any type of graphic that you'd like some help with, then this is the section for you! Gallery Critique+ Here, artists (of rank junior+) and members can offer their time to give critique to those wanting help. This critique is given in the form of a post in the recipient's gallery. This is particularly useful around promotion time! Please click here+ for the gallery critique rules in detail. Help Me Choose+ In the 'Help Me Choose' section, start a poll asking the your fellow TDA-ers which graphic they prefer, what you should choose as your 'Your Best Work' entry, which graphics are gallery worthy, and so on. Technique Based Q&A+ In the 'Technique Based Q&A' section you can post a topic for any sort of technique question you may have. A higher-ranked artist, or anyone who thinks they may be able to help out, can reply to the topic. This is not a one-on-one graphic critique, but rather a way to seek help for a specific technique. Technique Spotlight+ A specific technique will be spotlighted, and a few tutorials offered as inspiration and instruction to all artists, regardless of rank. THEN, you can do a couple of things: Use the Tips and Tricks thread to offer your own hints about the spotlighted technique - this is open to all ranks, as each artist has something to offer. Use the Q & A thread to ask questions about the spotlighted technique, especially if it's one with which you struggle. Again, this is open to all ranks. This where you ask all questions and seek help! A Place to Squee+ This is the place where members will come to 'squee' (showcase and talk about!) a gorgeous graphic by any fellow TDA-er. Quick Critique+ Looking for a quick way to spruce up your gallery before promotions? Looking for a clean-out, but don't want a full gallery critique? Wanting a response to something quickly? Look no further! Simply post in Quick Critique! If you have any further questions, please feel free to send a personal message to a moderator or admin (a list of current staff can be found here+) or feel free to ask in the FAQs+ or the chatbox/shoutbox on the main forum page :) If there's still any confusion, please click here+ for more Tips and Guidelines for the Critique Corner.
