Changing Username

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 9, 2013, 4:47 AM


Just letting everyone know that I'll be changing my username from LadyAdler to Hannah-Alexander .

LadyAdler was one of those impulsive names I chose at about the same time the first Sherlock Holmes movie came out. I didn't even like it that much. It holds no relevance to me as an artist nor does it have any nostalgic value. Even though illustrating is just a fun past time for me I feel that using my name is more professional and grown up. Generally I go by my name or the name of my Etsy store, Neverbird Designs, around the internetz anyway.

Just thought I'd let everyone know to avoid confusion! It will be changed in a couple of days :) You wont need to re-watch me or anything like that. If you type in my old username you'll be redirected to my new one automatically.

I think it's cool dA finally added the option to change your username. Over the years I've seen many artists complain about it. Some even create entirely new accounts just because they're sick of their old name.

BY THE WAY. You know when you've favourited an awesome, inspiring piece of work and then you go back to look at it in all it's beauty and you get: 'THIS DEVIATION IS IN STORAGE.' That really pisses me off. BUT. Does that mean it's just gone into the artist's scraps?? It only occurred to me today that that's what might be happening. If it's been entirely removed that kinda annoys me. Just because you, as the artist, are unhappy with some of your old work shouldn't mean it should be removed from your gallery completely, because OTHER people might still enjoy it. Same with fanfiction. It crushes me when some of my favourite fanfiction that's been around for years gets removed by the author. It doesn't hurt anyone by keeping it online! I just don't get it.

I completely agree about the whole putting deviations into storage. That really, really annoys me.

Deviations in storage annoy the heck out of me. :/ You're not alone there.

As for your name change, congrats! :D

:thumbsup:^^^This. It's why, when I took my oldest, most cringe-worthy fanfic off ff.net, I cleaned the mechanics up and posted it at my own site.

I am actually guilty of removing some of my old fanfiction (many years ago) and even i regret it now because they've since been deleted off my computer!! Bad decision on my part.

Agreed on that, I find it most annoying when its Bases and stock I've collected. Cause then people get mad at me for not linking the stock or base and I'm like, hey the originsl was removed or put in storage and I can not tell which till it is pulled out of storage.

Same with stamps! I collected lots of stamps over time and it's annoying when they get taken down. ...Why? They're stamps!!

right and with bases its like, you posted that for others to use
then you took it away? Why post it if you're removing it?

Its one thing to update a base look but still think of the
people who've favorite it.

I need to get a premium membership so I can change my cruddy name xD
And I totally agree with the bit about deviations in storage, IT IRRITATES THE HELL OUTTA ME, like when I'm going through my old favourites and there's half of them missing, it's really frustrating -.-

Yeah, especially when I can't remember exactly what it was and then it's just irritating! Or when it really was a big favourite of mine. I think my fave fanart of Zidane of all time was put into storage :( Imagine if they did that to the Mona Lisa or something! 'The person who owns the Mona Lisa doesn't want anyone to see it ever again, sorry everyone else!'
