Chat + Forum Newsletter: March, April

The chat and forum have been busy for both the Community Volunteer team and the deviantART community these past few months! If you are interested in either the chat or forum, then this newsletter is for you!

chat News

:star: Chat Event Calendar

We have somewhat slowed down our chat events so, as a result, we'd like to ask you what chat events you'd like to see! Would you like more critique chat events? Fun and games chat events? What kind of fun and games? Trivia? Rock, Paper, Scissors?

Let us know your thoughts on what kind of chat events you'd like to participate in!

dAmn Chat Userscript Problems
photofroggy recently posted an announcement about dAmn Chat Userscript Problems. Uerscripts are not officially supported by deviantART, so keep your eye on the journal for more updates on these issues!

Challenge Fun, Deviants Forum

We have recently started a new, weekly event in which the winner receives a 3 Month Premium Membership or the equivalent in 636 :points:! Check out our Challenge Fun #1 which is focused on stating the best reason for singing 'For He's a Jolly Good Fellow'! If you have a particular scenario in mind that would prompt such a song, please post it in the thread!

Muro Challenge, DrawPLZ Forum

As always, we are continuing with our Muro Challenges in the DrawPLZ Forum! Check out our latest hosted by diphylla here. Draw, doodle, illustrate or scribble your OC (original character) as a new superhero using it's special power and you may win a 3 Month Premium Membership!

Past results: #44, #45, #46, #47, #48.

Forum Features

Our Forum Feature for this month is hosted by myself. To be featured in our current Forum Feature, submit a deviation to our thread on the theme of New and you may be featured for this month's Forum Feature!

Check out our latest features, Forum Features #42 - March: Spring.


The Community Relations team is always looking for Community Volunteers for the Chat & Forum! If you are a frequent chatter in chat, or a regular forum poster in the forum, and you think you would be a great asset to our team, consider applying here!

We will try to continue these events in the chat and forum! That said, if you have any suggestions for improving the community side of the chat and forum, or anything related to the two that you would like/we could provide for you (features, interviews, contests, news, etc.), please do not hesitate to let us know!

Thank you! :love:

Thank you to all the participants!

So I've decided to make a group contest an annual thing

---but before I gee into that, MAJOR  apologies for the slow in deviation processing, even bigger apologies to littlevillagewolf and RainSometime whose deviations expired (an invite for the beautiful photos and custom has been extended)---

Back onto the contest,

:bulletred:It will run from the 23rd of April to the 30th of June
(tell me if you think an extension is needed)

:bulletorange:2014's theme is water
(Be creative! Just a drop of water an I'll except it! You could even customise a water themed horse or make water themed tack!)

:bulletyellow:I'll except entries even from non-members too!
(however, feel completely welcome to join the group!)

:bulletpink: THE photo/custom/tack MUST be taken for the contest only, a.k.a no old works

:bulletpurple: SCHLEICH horses and only SCHLEICH horses, other animals and people can be in the scene but they too MUST be schleich, ok? This group wasn't called SCHLEICH horse haven for nothing!

:bulletblue: SINCE this contest has a water theme, yes water must be incorporated or I won't except it

:bulletgreen: IT'S optional to post a journal or other as an advertisement (however it will be greatly appreciated) but you MUST put in the description, --- Entry for Schleich-Horse-Haven's group contest ---

And that's just about it :-)

:bulletyellow:ART ASSESSMENT:bulletyellow:
