Points to Dollars: Dollars to Points

DeviantArt Point Calculator by charfade

Click on the calculator to use it. It will convert the number of :dalogo: points to their equal value in dollars and cents. Also, it'll convert :dollarus: amounts into the equivalent number of :points:. I hope you find as useful as I have.

Tutorials That I Find Helpful

How to Use Stamps by FlantsyFlan Poetic Terms and TechniquesPoetic terms and techniques

This article aims to give you a brief introduction to some poetic terms with which you can bemuse your friends and nonplus your enemies.  Try and sling some of these terms into a casual conversation and watch the ensuing confusion.
If you don't want to confuse people, you could use these terms to discuss poetry like a badass while smoking unfiltered cigarettes in a French cafe, when critiquing, or to give your own poetry a bit of a vajazzle.
These terms are arranged vaguely into alphabetical order for your convenience.  Some of them will be covered in more detail in other articles throughout the week.

Alliteration (see also Sibilance)
Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds, often used for a specific effect in poetry.

How to: HTML by Salix-Sericea dA Guide: Text Formatting
Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work! (Certain codes do not work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.)  :'D

This is just a simple html guide to formatting text on dA (and other sites as well).  My goal was just to compile some html info into a simple, easy to understand guide for quick reference.  :)  Please let me know if the codes don't show up because sometimes they disappear when dA updates certain things.
This guide goes a little above and beyond dA's FAQ entry (although I purposely left out anything to do with links, because they don't work on literature submissions).  I also provided working examples, which might make the codes a little easier to understand. (Keep
PE: Poetry Forms- An A-Z An A-Z of Poetry Forms!
To kick start this week at projecteducate, we're starting off with a slightly lighter-hearted article listing just some of the poetic forms that exist out there. Lets be honest, there are hundreds and we can't list every single one. This is just a slice of the forms out there and if you are wishing to expand your understanding of different forms, do some research and don't take this as gospel!
Each form has a direct link to a site that describes the form in more detail, usually with examples too. I have also included some good examples from dA when I have found them.
Yes some of these link to wikipedia!
ABC- A poem where each word, line or stanza starts with the next continuous letter of the alphabet. Also known as an "Abcedarian"
