The current version of the site makes me cranky. I joined in 2008 and mostly left when they went with the new look and started trying to get me to buy stuff from them. The white doesn't inspire me and space feels wasted. I don't like all the scrolling I have to do now, and buttons are placed awkwardly. I ask (politely, knowing that beggars can't be choosers) that we get v3 back or v5 already and that they stop putting ads on the pages.
I'm a writer primarily and a visual artist as a hobby I'm not amazingly talented in either field, but the fun is in the journey. My current profile picture is an image I made myself using a line from The Dark Tower book series.
I make most of my palettes to go with things that I've written or seen in real life, and sometimes off of music because back when I joined I was still a teenager and had terrible taste. More recently I use them to pitch ideas to people for graphic design and then use them for that.
User Arachnakid is one of my many BFFs IRL, BTW.
