Hello $namenotrequired, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hello! My name is Bart, I'm 21 and I study informatics in Amsterdam. I'm currently a temporary Marketing Intern besides my role as Community Volunteer Mentor. For the first 9 months of being a Community Volunteer I looked after the deviantART Related galleries.
When did you first gain interest in the deviantART Related gallery?
How important is it that proper feedback is given to the deviantART staff?
What do you feel you accomplished during your time as the dA Related Community Volunteer?

What is your favourite deviation from your own gallery?
I think this is my favourite of the songs I wrote:
TruthLong ago I wrote my wisest words of that young age
I had written many lines, but most I would reject
Suddenly my pencil then entrusted to the page
that the Truth is always more important than its side effects.
And I never knew
If I had written truth
I've been thinking ever since to find the greatest truth
to make sense of the paradox confusing all our lives
A philosopher I soon became
the subject has since stayed the same
Should we think, or should we feel; will the wits or heart survive
And I never knew
How to find the truth
Now, did i finally find the right way
to live, and help you from sorrow?
I'd tell you to know about yesterday,
feel about today, and think about tomorrow.
Yet, when thinking of you
I feel for you too;
just a side effect of the truth?
And this is simply one I think everyone should see

Get your Art some Attention on deviantARTFive basic tips to get your Art some Attention, Appreciation & Audience on deviantART
Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not.
First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.
Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far.
So here we go! :iconeagerpee:
Submit art regularly.
Try to find a balance between quality and quantity. Personally I think it's best to submit one or a couple of dev
