`Seniority Suggestions


Did you know that you can suggest members for seniority?

Seniors on dA have a special user symbol (`) that makes them stand out from the crowd. That's because THEY stand out from the crowd with their awesome art and dedication to the dA community. Do you know someone who makes a difference by helping make dA a better place for other people through their tireless devotion to community spirit and events? Or, perhaps you know someone who creates amazing art that deserves more distinction and recognition? Nominate them for seniority! All you have to do is send a note to fourteenthstar.

To learn more about what it takes to be a senior, check out FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member? Seniors are chosen at 1-2 special times during the year, often including holidays and dA's birthday.

What's a Senior?

A senior is someone who is infected with a bug called tick which hangs like a parasite attached to the body.

And something I realized some time back:

deviantART Alumni are called such because they have a degree.
Seriously. And we're called Seniors because we already have a grave marker. `

:shifty: Okay, there's the puns in the symbols. Well, some of them, anyways.

I never knew that we could suggest for the Deviousness Award!! I've been trying so hard to find people I really think deserve a Seniority award; hopefully I can suggest someone soon!

 

It's my biggest dream here on dA to become a Senior member <3 Maybe one day ;D
Just gotta do some hard work and help more people out!

Seniority isn't really an award though. It's just a status. :D

I know. But I've been working on a series of articles recently to help people who have questions about deviantART. It's kind of like the Project Educate, but the more there is, the merrier.
It'd just be nice to know that after all my hard work someone might actually acknowledge what I'm doing for the community. :shrug:
I doubt I'll ever get it, but whatever.

Also I'd like to suggest that you give us a list of current senior members grouped by the country they come from, in order to see which countries have the most representation.

I'd like to nominate people, but whats the exact criteria for senior members for example, I thought they had to be on dA for longer than two years.

In addition to senior members and community volunteers - what about adding a category such as community organisers (for example founders of big groups on dA, people who do tons of tutorials, and especially for the active journal skin makers who don't have premiums themselves)

I think community organisers should get certain premium membership benefits based on what they contributed to the community for example a journal skin maker community organiser gets to install journal skins for free. People who have done more than 1000 constructive critiques should get the CR feature for free etc. People who founded more than 3 super groups with over 10000 members get to have one super group for free.

The symbol for the community organiser could be #. I think the hashtag could be very useful if implemented and give these people a chance to trend on twitter.

It is engagement in the community that matters for seniority. So anyone who would fall into "community organisers" sounds like someone who can be a senior :)

# is already in use for groups btw
