As August 7th, deviantART's 11th Birthday, so does a premier event: the deviantART Staff Appreciation Week! This event has been undergoing planning since April 2011, all of which can be followed by watching StaffAppreciation!
The goal of StaffAppreciation and the deviantART Staff Appreciation Week is to promote general community positiveness, and to show the core staff members that we, as a community, appreciate their time, efforts, dedication, and overall work here on deviantART.
There will be a week-long event held from August 8th until August 14th, during which time the community will be able to participate in chat events, mini-contests, and a super-secret gift for the $taff of deviantART.
So, if you are interested in anything mentioned above, feel free to +devWatch StaffAppreciation and take part in the festivities!
Now we need your help!
In order for our event to be a success, we need as much community participation as possible!
That is why StaffAppreciation is now hosting a mini-event: pimp us and be entered to win a 3-month subscription and 250 !
That's right! You can read more about this little offering in our blog entry!
