Suggestion: Groups and NewsSince groups was released, the way that deviants interact with each other has changed a lot, and mostly for the better. We can efficiently communicate through blogs, and everything is much better organized.However, there is one thing that I have noticed. Since I am a deviant that runs news article features through groups, there are only a couple of ways to let the deviants know about the feature. One option is to write a blog informing them of the news article that was posted, and hope that the deviants open the blog and then click on the link. If you are informing the deviant that they have been featured in an article, then you can send them a comment or reply.

The worst is when a deviant does not even request critique and receives it.So, how do we improve this critique/criticism system? There is no one huge fix for this, because the

SS Sinnoh Adventures- Prologue"Hey Kotone, what's your most memorable moment as a Pokemon trainer?" Silver asked his happy go lucky rival, in an attempt to break an awkward silence that was in Kotone's room back at New Bark Town."Huh? Oh... let's see." Kotone thought back through all of her adventures through the Johto and Kanto region, looking back on many events. Suddenly, her expression went from one of pondering to one of a happy nostalgia. "For me, it was probably when Bayleef first evolved into Meganium. She was the most beautiful and majestic Pokemon that I have ever seen."Silver looked away with a half disgusted look on his face. "Really? That's so girly..." He readjusted himself, sitting in a more comfortable position in Kotone's room, though not much could hide the fact that he was nervous."Oh, what is your most memorable moment then, Silver?" Kotone replied slightly annoyed that Silver was poking fun at her. Sure, she was an easy target to poke fun at, but he didn't have to do so.With a smug look on
