dA Related CR Update: November 2012

Sat Nov 10, 2012, 8:18 AM
Welcome to this month's Community Relations Update for the deviantART Related gallery! :)

Recent News

devID Spooky Make-up Contest!

If you aren't already aware, I held a deviantID Halloween Contest last month. Winners will be announced over the weekend! :eager:

Until then, you can view every entry submitted here.

CSS Community - Where are you?

Over the past few months, myself and a few others have noticed a sharp decline in the amount of proper journal and gallery skins being submitted.

It's so difficult to find a skin to feature when there's nothing new and refreshing being submitted. It is that time of year where everyone gets busy, but the state of the CSS community is quite concerning at the moment.

I've spoken to some deviants and they've said that they don't have any ideas, or they're struggling to find motivation to be creative.

Let's hope this situation improves soon! :hug:

Restructure Update

Way back in August, I first announced that the deviantART Related would be undergoing a restructure. I have not forgotten about it! :giggle:

I've changed the proposed structure a handful of times and I've finally come up with one. So let me know what you think! Should anything be changed, edited or renamed? :D

Proposed structure*:
  • Deviant Stamps
  • DeviantMEETS
  • Devious Fun
    • Adoptables
    • Art Memes
      • Blank Templates
      • Filled In Templates
    • My Video Stills
    • LOLFella
    • It's Coming
    • Other
  • T-Shirts, Gear & Prints
    • Community Product Shots
      • Product Shots
      • deviantART Gear
    • Featured Action Shots
    • For Sale
    • Reprinting
    • Sold Out
  • Zines
  • deviantART Birthday
    • 12th Birthday
    • Previous Birthdays
  • deviantART Skins
    • Journal Skins
      • Complete CSS
      • Installable Journal Skins
      • Journal Designs
    • Gallery Skins
      • Complete CSS
      • Gallery Designs
    • Journal & Gallery Packs
    • Journal & Gallery Graphics
  • deviantART Customization
    • User Page Resources
    • Browser Scripts & Extensions
    • User Styles
  • deviantART Visual Suggestions
  • deviantID

I will also be proposing a "deviantART Related" category in the Flash gallery.

*This will not be the final structure, as it has to be run by and approved by Moonbeam13, and she always knows best. ;)

Special Mention

Hey man, I guess you saw that we were talking about this just now. How's this proposed restructure going along? I'm particularly curious about the proposed separation of gallery/journal skins and user scripts/styles. The way you have these 2 ("deviantART Skins" vs "deviantART Customization") listed here makes so much more sense to me…

It will be going as planned, and hopefully done by the end of the year, but I can't make any promises. :) 

Of course, things may change because ^ginkgografix is now the CV, but I'm hoping things will stay similar to what I have layed out here. :D

Sounds good to me. Cheers!

GAGAAA. Just noticed that the Memes category doesn't allow text submissions, why not :O
bradleysays Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
I think it might be because the category is mainly for art memes. :o What text submission did you want to submit there?
neurotype Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't, but someone brought up that they make meme templates and have no place to put them :o Also there are some writing character memes floating around, it'd be nice to put them somewhere appropriate!
bradleysays Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013
Good point. :o I'll bring that up with Danie when she returns.

:la: If I think of anything else I'll let you know!
