Luna’s Quick Answers Corner #3

((Because I can’t leave the questions there forever, right?

Blog going slow (b’cause stuff in my life, including other projects) but never going to stop. Who’s patient enough will see new stuff coming.

… I was going to say something else but as usual I forgot. Oh well, I’ll remember someday))

Question for you

((Dear Modest Subjects, I’m about to fetch one or more questions for a new post. Especially old ones who are still waiting.

While I do it, I’ve got a little question for you: would you like me doing Pre-Posting Livestreams where I play a random game for a hour before submitting the post? Or do you prefer me just putting posts online without waiting that much? Or also, keep these livestreams for special occasions?

Let me know in the comments of this post what you think! Scroll down to find them.))

How ask tumblr’s answers are made

A little infographic made by me for people who don’t know and are wondering about what happens “behind the scenes”.

If you see any mistake, forgive me: I’m Italian. Instead, help me to correct them.

If you cannot see the image, try this link: http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/105/1/2/how_ask_tumblr__s_answers_are_made_by_horuslv-d7ej2f0.png

((Here’s what I promised you. I hope is gonna be useful, somehow!))

Sorry

((No worries. At least you apologized. There are some people who don’t even do it.

I’m anyway taking a bit of my time to submit a little thing which may explain to everyone all phases an Ask Tumblr must follow before to submit a post.

I hope will be useful. Not just for you, but also for whoever wondered how an answer “is made”.))

Why don't you answer me

((Because… hmm… you know… I should DRAW the answer and I’m NOT super fast?

Before you ask: no. I don’t make text answers. That’s not the purpose of this blog. More you are insistent, less you’ll receive the answers you want.))

#35 - Part 3

((And here ends the story arc. Now back to the normal questions!

Thanks to everyone who participated to the Pre-posting Livestream! Sorry for all the inconveniences.))

Announcing the first “Pre-posting Livestreaming”!
The drawings for the new post are all ready: I just need to scan and edit them. This will close the story arc and I’ll be back to the normal questions.
But since you all have been so patient and nice, I decided to do something special: give you the chance to see me play a game and hear my awful voice with my horrendous pronunciation.
- How does this work?When the live will start, I’ll introduce myself to you, explain some stuff and then will start a 1 hour timer. Once it will reach the zero, I’ll immediately stop playing no matter what and I’ll go submit the new post, still in live. After the submission has been completed, I’ll greet you and voilà: the new post will be online!
- Are there any rules?Eeeeyup:
No links: they make the live lag;
No spam: really, it’s just annoying;
Respect the others: I mean, come on. Do you really need me to tell you this?
- Something else to know?Well, since my PC isn’t a pro-gaming one and the internet here in Italy isn’t the fastest, I’ll play the game in windowed mode and the live may lag. One more reason to avoid links: don’t make it lag EVEN MORE.
- When and where does the live begins?Remember this:

Today (19th March 2014) at 9:00 PM ESTon my Twitch channel: http://www.twitch.tv/dzaladan

That’s all you need to know. Thanks for participating, if you’re going to! If you’re not going… well, still thank you for following me!

Since you all have been so kind and patient…

I’m planning a little thing you can take part before the post will be submitted. Stay tuned.

New year thanks

blackbsuniverse:

And as a new year begin, time for me to thank some people from the latest:

Jan - I know him even before he entered in the MLP fandom. Another year is passed and, in spite of some little tensions between us, we are still together. He gave me support and we roleplayed a lot, building authentic stories with him. So, thanks Jan! Happy New Year!

Baka - I met her time ago thanks to Jan. We don’t talk much, but when we do we sometimes do it quite well. Thanks to her I discovered some stuff that I was missing and supported me even when I was such a whining bitch. So, thanks Baka! Happy New Year!

Viroro-kun - The one who introduced Jan to me and if I wouldn’t cite him here I’d feel like a criminal. Always the first to talk, extremely patient and always humble (maybe too much), It’s surely someone I’d give my trust. Thanks Will! Happy New Year!

Atryl - We barely talk and barely know eachother. But almost everytime he got time for me in spite of he hasn’t much even for himself. I’m still trying to know him better, but seriously: now he’s married, has children and works a lot; do you really think he has time to waste for an annoying fly like me? 
Maybe yes, I don’t know: as I said, I don’t know him well enough. But about a thing I’m sure: he’s a great person. So, thanks Atryl! Happy New Year!

Haiku - We almost never talked, but among many better tumblrs, he choose me. He gave me help when asked and even supported me when I was in trouble. Now I’m safe and that’s thanks to him too. That’s why he’s here. Thanks Haiku! Happy New Year!

fsLeg - We don’t know much eachother… but just at the moment. He was the first person in absolute to give me support. And he keeps doing it. I still have no words to thank him enough: I never EVER felt so appreciated. And that’s why he MUST be in this list. Thanks fsLeg! Happy New Year!

And obviously, I thank all my Followers of all my blogs! Happy New Year to everyone!

have you canceled this blog, or are you still working on it? I can completely understand if life is just getting in the way.

((right now I’m working on the commissions. I’ll start work again on the blog when everything will be sorted out.

And please, I won’t repeat it again: send questions to me to my Mod Blog. Further questions for me in this inbox will be ignored. I’m sorry, but I want to keep my blog tidy.))

This post is for you

blackbsuniverse:

OK people, I want to say this once for all. I can’t hold it anymore.

Thank you! Thank you with all my heart!

In these days, I received a lot of support. Not only donation, but also kind words, comments and your reblogs.

Seriously, the quantity of and appreciation I received left me floored. I have literally no words. I have no words to how people wanted to give me even a piece of their life to support someone like me.

Many people said that this community is terrible. Maybe it’s true, maybe the “bad side” is really terrible… but it’s compensated by an awesome side where people support eachother, no matter what. That’s why I’m still here: I want to ignore the “bad side” and stay with the awesome people because here is where the love and support flows.

Again, thanks. Thanks a lot. As I said, no words can describe how I’m thankful for you. I’d like to meet everyone, give them an hug and many other things. Thank you. One more time.

If you asked me something, don’t worry: I’m slow because I also have to study but if you are in my list be sure that your commission will be made. Slowly but surely, no one escapes. Also, if you’ll need any kind of support, including moral one, I’ll be here to listen your stories and let you steam off your anger/sadness/frustration/et cetera. Just contact me.

This post is for you. Thanks community! *hug*

I would have NEVER ask for this. But I have no choice…

blackbsuniverse:

OK, people. This is important. A LOT. So please, read everything and don’t stop because it’s too long.

There’s something I never told you: the financial problems of my family are EXTREMELY poor right now. So far we lived quite normally, but in these days we hit the lowest point.

Our electricity got lowered and sooner or later the gas and connection will be cut, not counting we have to pay at least a little the bank loan or they are going to take an house we are selling and which is our only hope to raise some money. And so far no one seemed interested.
Just to make it worse, we cannot buy even the BREAD. No, I’m not joking. This is just what happens when your father is an idiot which says “I work all day!” but barely brings a cent at home. Since YEARS.

Here I need your help: at first I needed the money I was saving for a new PC, but now there are more urgent things, like I told you now.

Please, do the following: give me something from 1$ to… whatever you want and I’ll draw you something you ask. Obviously, don’t expect something great if you give just 1$: I’ll draw something worth the money. More you give, better will be the work. You can send them via PayPal at lordx209@msn.com

OR

If you don’t want to give me anything, AT LEAST REBLOG THIS POST. Please, it’s important. Thank you.

DO NOT “LIKE” THIS POST. IT DOESN’T HELP ME AT ALL.

((I have never told you about my REAL situation because I didn’t want to make you worried. But now I have no choice. I must do something or… I don’t know what is gonna happen. Please, help me.))

((Before working on the next post, I wanted to spend a bit of time for this.
Few days ago, that person who made me a donation returned and gave me something more.
Seriously, when you do such things to me I can’t just take them and shut up: I WANT to give something back.
Dear donor, unfortunately I don’t know your OCs or favourite charas, so… I made this instead adding also… err… I think… something we can call “autograph”.I also took advantage to thank properly who is still here. Consider this the “true picture of the anniversary”. Thank you very very much!
Now… IMPORTANT STUFF.
Let’s talk about donations: like I said, I don’t like take without give back, so I got this idea:
You want to give something to me? Fine, you can. BUT… you MUST tell me also what you want me to draw and I’ll do something of equal value. For example: if you give me 1$, I’ll make you a sketchy head. Just to give you an idea of what I mean.
Please, really, ASK ME SOMETHING if you want to give me money. It’s not just a matter of kindness, I also need practice to improve my sh***y drawings.
Last of all, there’s something else you can do for me but without give me your money: click THIS LINK, sign up to the site and make at least one visit per day. That’s all.The site may appear in italian language but don’t worry: you can change it on the bottom of the page.
Each visit you’ll make will give me some cents that with time may become precious.
Aaaaand… I don’t have anything else to say. Except thank you one more time for your support!
See ya, Modest Subjects!))

#35 - Part 2

((And here it comes! I’m managed to get the permission tu bring the scanner in my room, in this way I can work more easily.

Who has a good eye won’t miss the many mistakes. Like the Modestia’s mutant mane.

Oh, and before I forget: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT… MODEST SUBJECTS!

Uhhh, I found a nickname!))

((Oh my…))

((I woke up few minutes ago, I opened my e-mail and received a message from PayPal which tells me that on of my followers called Vladislav Borisov (yes, I write his name because he DESERVES credits and MUST be loved) donated me 10 euros to continue my tumblr.

OH. MY. GOD. YOU!!

THANKS FROM THE DEEPEST DEEPNESS OF MY HEART!

You know what? I’m so euphoric that I took a decision. I wanted to avoid to phisically take the scanner from my father’s studio because it’s quite a mess put it back in place (and he doesn’t like it much), but just for you (not only him, but EVERY SINGLE FOLLOWER) I will literally STEAL it and scan the pics.

They’re not ready yet, but after such a thing I want to finish this story arc and return to questions as soon as possible.

And you, Vladislav, thanks again! I won’t forget this!

And again thanks to all my beloved followers!

I must find a nickname for you… hmm…))
