Happy Birthday Moonbeam13!Hello allToday marks a very special day for someone, and since this someone is our wonderful team leader, $Moonbeam13, we wanted to write a journal to say... HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANIE!Now a lot of you know Danie as the big chief of the Community Relations team, but I doubt half of you truly know how much of a hard worker Danie is. Not only does she have to look after us lively lot (and by “lot” have you seen how big the CV team is?!), but she works on copious behind the scenes projects on deviantART, making this place just a little bit more devious and better for all us Artists out there in the big dA community. Not only this, but she has to have a life at the same time!Now we have decided to use Danie’s birthday for three things:1. To wish her a very happy birthday (of course)2.
Self Suggesting DD'sThank you so much for all the +favs, the comments and +devwatchs I've received and still am for my Daily Deviation "Carried Away". You guys are awesome and I appreciate your support so much! Now I have a confession to make... I self suggested this deviation to DomiSM, so it didn't come as a surprise I received it.I know from being a volunteer that some people feel that DD's should be suggested by others or that it should be a surprise. Well no, not always. Sometimes you have to fight for your work to gain exposure. Gone are the days where deviantART was a small site... you need to learn how to use the channels on dA to get the exposure your work deserves.These days, I work in vector and the high pecentage of work I upload to dA is client work. A huge part of being a Freelancer is marketting yourself and putting yourself out there. This is why self suggesting yourself for a Daily Deviation should be

PE DDs: When It's Not Always PositiveWhen DDs Go AwryDaily Deviations, or “DDs,” are frequently held in very high esteem on deviantART. After all, what artist does not want his or her work displayed for more than 20 million viewers to see and admire? The benefits of receiving a DD feature include increased exposure for your work and a day in the spotlight for you as an artist. Many people therefore view DDs as badges of honor, awards that make them proud and validate the time they spend in our community.Be careful what you wish for!Don’t get us wrong-- DDs are wonderful for the purposes listed above. But, they can also bring a lot of drama upon the artist, especially if they are controversial.Let’s talk about some of the sources of this drama.The CriticSome people feel that people who post art-- and especially those whose art is worthy of a Daily Deviation-- should have thick enough skin to accept criticism as well as praise. They argue that criticism is part
Welcome to the 2012 dASAW! [Updated]Welcome to the 2012 deviantART Staff Appreciation Week! Hello everyone, and welcome to our second annual deviantART Staff Appreciation Week! We hope that you're as excited as we are to kick off a 7-day-long celebration of deviantART and the people who make it run smoothly for us!

PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?You're browsing deviantART or are simply checking your message centre and find a wonderful art piece. You want to suggest it as a Daily Deviation because you believe it truly deserves to be seen by the community as a whole. But how to properly suggest a DD? This article will explain the process.Things to check before sending a suggestion:The first thing you need to check is if the artist has been given a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. Volunteers cannot feature anyone who's had a DD in that period of time with no exceptions, as this has been hard-coded into deviantART's system. "But how do I check an artist's Daily Deviations?" you may ask. Simply go to their gallery, click browse and scroll down. If they have any DDs, you'll be able to find a link to them at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can add "/dds" after their profile url and click enter on your browser's address bar.

I Came, I dAmned, I Founded 25In this ongoing series of articles, we probe the minds of some dAmn'schannel founders to find out what makes them tick, how they've madetheir room a success and what tips they can provide to budding channelowners.---This month is LiliWrites and :#SolutionsRus:---1) First off LiliWrites, can you tell us a little bit about yourself!My name is Lili and I live in North Carolina. I have been on deviantART for about 6 years now (previously as KneelingGlory) and have grown a great deal as an artist in my time here. Most people find it curious that I am 6'3" tall, but don't particularly enjoy basketball. I'm a nerd at heart. 2) When did you first discover dAmn, and can you remember the first room you ever chatted in?I think I first discovered it when someone I watched posted a poll inviting people to come join a chatroom. I don't recall what room it was, but I remember I discovered a very silly, fun, entertaining atmosphere that was unlike any o
