:star: Taking a look back!

Before we look ahead to the expanse of artistic potential that is the new year, we wanted to look back at some of the amazing things the deviantART community accomplished in 2011.  We continue to be humbled, year after year, by the nurturing power of the community home grown by deviants like you.  Artists and art enthusiasts of every style you can imagine consider deviantART their home on the Internet for all things creative, and their talent and enthusiasm inspire our community to greater heights than ever thought possible.

It's happening in Canada too? I thought it was only America.

Also, deviantart can't be "blocked" necessarily, since SOPA only cuts off ads/payment services to a site. But I can see where the confusion would come from *has been researching the bill*

There's similar threats happening in Canada. I think it was bundled with the omnibus crime bill up here or Bill C11 or something. They keep changing it's name so much it's hard to keep track. I wouldn't be surprised if Harper snuck it by our noses while we're distracted with the American one seeing as how he likes to do things underhanded that way.
