How to be noticed on deviantARTI've been on this site for a few years now, and as always there is an influx of new deviants during the summer when school is out. I also frequent the forums and one of the most common question by new or neglected deviants is "How do I get noticed on this site" or some variant of it.How to be noticed on deviantART7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is actually addressed in :faq56:
Within good old #56 is an general explanation on how you should just be active in the forums and in commenting on other people's works.

1.a The easiest and simplest method to be noticed is addressed in the faq; Comment frequently, and put effort into your comment to standout even more. Don't expect everyone to answer though, if the person is quite popular [has a ton of pageviews and watchers] then they simply don't have the time to answer all the comments they get.

Foreign Words the English Language NeedsOh hello. I’m finally getting around to making this news article that I said I might do, like, a month ago. Sorry, I’m not used to writing news articles. Bear with me.Foreign Words the English Language Needs3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Back in August, I started a series in my forums for cool foreign words. It went over extremely well and numerous people requested that I combine them into a handy-dandy news article for deviantART at large to enjoy. So, here you are: fifteen foreign words that the English language needs to
What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country

Interacting OCs Contest *NEW DEADLINE*And now for the official announcement for our contest:Interacting OCs Contest *NEW DEADLINE*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: We have only had one entry so far, so I've decided to extend the deadline to give you guys some more time to make something awesome! The new deadline is February 14th 2013, 11.59 pm GMT+1
Draw your OC interacting with another deviant's OC! The goal of this contest is to spread the love for your own OCs as well as other people's OCs. To enter the contest, you must draw at least one of your own Bleach OCs involved in some kind of interaction with another deviant's Bleach OC. This could be anything: You could draw them talking, fighting, maybe even kissing! Go nuts, and please keep in mind to be respectful of other people's OCs and to keep things soft (this means that kissing and hugging and such are allowed, but sexually explicit content is not).
THE CONTEST RULES
All entries must be drawn either digitally or tradition

Hullo, Nerdfighters! I am WickedBatGirl, aka Elphie, and I am here to give you your first Secret Project!!!
However... you won't really submit to DeviantArt. At least, not just yet.
The school year is once again going to start for most of us (I'm pretty sure, at least) and after watching John's letter, I got some inspiration to have us do a little project.
I would like it if you all would create letters/notes (you can add drawings, of course) to other Nerdfighters to encourage them throughout this school year. Please make them 8 1/2" by 11", or standard US Letter Size, and send them to deviantnerdfighters at gmail. I'll look through them all individually and make sure they're all right. Then, here comes the awesome part: on August 24th (a Friday) everyone who submitted a letter will get a letter back from someone else!

The war had ended. Aizen managed to escape, but was declared as dead. Soifon`s squad is chasing him secretly to finally get desired revenge for all of his crimes. But you shoild always expect him to have a plan B...
Long time ago, when all the shinigami worked apart, there were no Soul Society or Hell, there was just a river, where all the souls were sent after death. No matter, how much bad things they did, in their afterlife everybody was considered as sinners and punished equally. Equal pain and sorrow waited for them after the death. Thy were turning into mindless mass, being the only source of energy that sustained the world order. The right to rule the death belonged only to Thanatos, the Elder God of death, merciless, chaotic creature. He was the one, who filled the river of the death with souls to the rim. He also was the one, who ruled the first shinigami. But they had enough of this pointless tyrany and he was overthrown a

Draw every day; nothing works like practice, and relax, setbacks are temporary and anxiety smothers genius. Entertain your curiosity, but don't let it run a muck.
Use music to your advantage, don't let it muffle your thoughts. Nearly everyone enjoys music; wake up to something, but turn it down when you need to think. Explore new music; share and be receptive in this.
Get lost in your work, don't dawdle; be economical.
Respect anyone willing to support your work; listen to what they say. Take time to appreciate flattery, but don't revel in it. Heed insults; DON'T respond to them. Receive every criticism, but don't let them discourage you.
Make as many friends as you can; don't let them take advantage of you. DON'T take advantage of them.
Have heroes, but not idols. Approach them and don't waste your time on anyone who treats you badly. Be modest, bu

All I need to do is set up a way you can buy them easily~ and at this point I'm thinking eBay because that seems the easily for most people so I will try to get that up and running asap~!
