Journal Entry: Thu Jan 24, 2013, 9:13 PM
Easy Official Links

Suggested by namenotrequired and written by bradleysays

Did you know you can easily make links to many official dA pages in the same way you link to users?

These official pages include help, welcome, www, chat, forum, faq, world and more. :) If you are unsure on how to link to users normally, please read 'Username linking' in FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?.

You can also link to the different section of the Help Desk - with links such as:

Just put whichever section you want to link to after Please note that the capitalization must be identical to how it's written in the category menu of the Help Desk and that %20 should replace where the spaces would normally be.

My Correspondence Page

Have you ever accidentally deleted a correspondence message from your message center? Well did you know there is now a page that has a history of any correspondence messages you've received?

Just go to your My Correspondence page (you can also access this through the menu (stickied or not)).

Your My Correspondence page is an archive of your correspondence messages from Commissions as well as Group submission, closure, and join requests.

If you have any questions about the My Correspondence page, don't be afraid to ask!

What would you like to know?

As we write this article series for you, the community, we would like to know: What aspects of the website do you want to learn more about? Or what can you teach other deviants about? If we decide to use your suggestion we will be sure to credit you. :) Thank you for your input in advance!

Let us know your ideas through our feedback page :eager:

:O Countless of times I got messages that I accidentally deleted, so the "My Correspondence" thing is like the holy grail for me right now. Thank you so much for writing about this and letting us (that had no clue this existed) know about it.

OMG!! I am so glad I read this - If there is one thing I'm good at it's accidentally clicking the remove button instead of the move button.

I must try that some time. Good to know!
