So...I've been considering coming back to dA, for several reasons--some of you have asked me directly and I'm lurking anyway. But while further considering this and in the process of writing an advanced Two-Transform Method
guide, I began to wonder: Am I obsolete? I primarily use one of the oldest style of Apophysis flames, I have little interest in any other styles, my flames look about the same, and I haven't contributed anything substantial to the fractal/Apophysis community in about a year. Due to this, I've hesitated to renew my subscription or actively participate on dA. I have a batch of new renders I've worked on over the past couple of months, but I feel like I'm still not ready to come back. Maybe I will upload a few deviations and see how it goes.
Regardless, I have unstored most of my deviations (well, the ones I like, so it's still over 350 works). Thanks to server glitches, however, the deviations will not show up for some time. I've had a few pieces unstored for over a month and a half, but they are still AWOL. I'm guessing that the new servers installation will fix a lot of the problems. I hope.
Oh, and everyone, when noting/e-mailing me for help, please be specific
in your initial correspondence. I get many "can you help me" generic questions about Apophysis and CSS (since when did I become the CSS guru?). I don't know if I can help unless I see what the problem is. I will generally be able to help, but it's not a guarantee, so I would like to know ahead of time what I'm getting myself into (it also cuts down on the amount of notes I receive). Thanks everyone.
