EDIT: 1) I am enabling comments because of such strong response to this journal. 2) This account has NOT been hacked, I own it--I have all the proper documentation that proves so. 3) We are not closing simply because of an error. That resignation just made me think that it was probably time to close. DLD has been a wonderful part of the lit community, but it has run it's course. This has been in my thoughts for some time and now just seems the time to bring it to an end. I apologize to all of you who are disappointed.
It has been 5 years since the birth of DailyLitDeviations and we recently published an article on the history of DLD that I had to take down. The article was unintentionally incorrect. It gave credit for co-founding to a deviant who was only an admin, who never had the account password, and who did not take part in the initial chatroom conversation that spawned DLD. That conversation occurred between Will VertigoArt and Brandon Eloquent-Weapon. They were the two creators of DLD. TheKrimzonDemon came along after and was an excellent and dedicated to the cause admin, but not a co-founder.
As an unfortunate result of my taking the article down, a treasured and key staff member has decided to resign... therefore I am closing the group and will be shutting down this account. DLD has had its run, a very successful one and it has morphed from what it was at the original vision into a beautiful love story under the tutelage of so many dedicated, contributing staff members. I look forward to seeing where all of you will go and what you will do in and for the thriving lit community here at deviantART.
It's time for our end. Thank you so much to all the present and former staff members and to the supporting dA staff that have stuck with us despite our upstartedness. I regret that we should end so suddenly and without warning but good fortune to all of you... Namaste.
Always remembering the good times,
