STARTING ON JUNE 1, EVERYTHING IS 10 POINTS FOR A MONTH
this has started. go for it!
how long have you been on deviantART?
i've been on deviantART since august 12, 2011.
you would've been 12 then - that's under the age. how did you manage to join in 2011 and escape being punished?
well, i got banned at one point. i was banned for the entire summer of 2012, because they caught me for being underage. yes, i joined deviantART at the age of 12, and yes, i was underage. they told me they would release the account back after i turned 13. due to a few technical issues, i didn't get my account back until the end of august.
you aren't uploading very much, or on deviantART at all - is there any reason why?
well, one, real life before deviantART. the school year just ended for me, and it was a busy one, so i didn't get much of a chance to draw or write at all. however, since the year is over, you can probably expect more from me. and, you don't know it, but i am still on deviantART. i spend most of my time on deviantART, on various roleplay accounts of mine. you can find them here - ~i-love-to-marf.
how long have you been doing art?
i've been pursuing art for 6 years.
will you ever do this professionally?
for my drawings, i highly doubt it. this is a hard field to get it - and i have other interests. as of right now, i would love to become a singer - however, for a more practical wish, i'd prefer to become an author.
i don't have points, but i do have money. would you accept that?
as of right now, no, i can only accept deviantART points. i don't have a paypal set up or anything, and i probably wouldn't be allowed to anyway. maybe in the very distant future, but definitely not now. besides, like i said, i will probably not be pursuing this professionally.
do you have a facebook?
yes, i do. no, you can't have it.
what other forms of social media do you have?
i have a personal tumblr ( i-love-to-marf.tumblr.com ) and a twitter ( @yyjvmb ). i am considering making a tumblr dedicated to my art, but i'm currently unsure as to whether or not i should.
i need to contact you and i'd need an immediate response - is there anywhere i can go?
use my email - email@example.com. if it is desperately urgent, note my most active roleplay account, ~f4ultyst4rs.
what does your username mean?
when joining deviantART in 2011, i didn't know what to make my username. i got frustrated after a while, so i just banged my fist on the keyboard. 'yyjvmb' popped up, and i found it to be catchy, so i kept it.
if you thought about it now, what would you make your username?
( those are all claimed by me already, though )
why haven't you changed your username, then?
eh, it's become a classic at this point. besides, i have no reason to change, so why not?
i managed to find your roleplay accounts. they look great! but...can i have the username of one of your inactive accounts?
it depends on what account, but generally i will say yes ( a no will only be prompted if i have some sort of emotional attachment to that account ) just note me, and i'll respond. however, i won't let you have the character - just the username. if you want the username, you'll have to be prepared to wait 30 days, because i will be deactivating it. i'd rather you not have access to my email, and it'll give you the chance for a fresh start. also, you can use the username for whatever - main account, stock account, or roleplay account. have fun. <3
there is another account floating around with a similar username, ~Codename-YYJVMB. is this you?
yes it is. it is a bit inactive right now, though - i originally intended to use it to upload my literature deviations, but it hasn't happened to this date. i might just deactivate it, but that's still pending.
thanks for the watch!
no problem, hun. <3
