This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get a premium membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get a premium membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!

Recently, all across the world people logged onto their YouTubes and Google Plays to find that they were forbidden to comment (among other things) unless they signed up to Google+. If you're like me, you were probably pretty pissed about this (and hopefully you didn't give in and join). Unfortunately, they've made it quite difficult to actually get their attention on the matter.
But I'm not just here to whine. Oh no, I've got something much better. You see, I recently tracked down the personal emails of Google CEO Larry Page (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt (email@example.com), and sent them both a nicely wrapped little piece of my mind with all the superficially businesslike snide passive aggression I could muster. I like to think it was rather well written, if I do say so myself. But I thought "Hey, why let a good thing go to waste? I should share this wonderful gift with the world!".
So, I helpfully posted this information on the Google Support forum. Unfortunately, these posts were taken down by the moderators for "sharing personal information (yeah, not quite as much fun from the other side, is it Google?). Of course, I'm never one to let a silly little thing like that stop me, so I decided to post it here and elsewhere so that others may benefit from it as I have, because they can't, as the old saying goes, stop the signal. They can never stop the goddamned signal.
So go ahead, write them a little letter and tell them exactly what you think of their latest failure.
Tell your friends! Hell, tell your enemies. I'm sure they're pissed too. Nothing brings people together quite like the hatred of a common enemy.
