Of course I cannot feature them all as Daily Deviations, but I still like many of these that I don't feature. So here's a feature with some of "the best of the rest" - I hope you will enjoy them as much as I dodeviantART Related Features3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

The Stars of dAr - `Mirz123The Stars of dAr is a series where I interview one member of the deviantART Related (dAr) community each time, about personal and dA related matters. For today we have Mirz123! She creates fantasic stamps, sometimes fun and silly, but also often with an important and profound message, and always in her recognisable style. She's also an enthusiastic community member in many aspects, and can be found in many corners of the community. But enough about her from me - I'll hand the floor to Mirz herselfThe Stars of dAr - `Mirz1233 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hi Mirz123, thanks for agreeing to be interviewed
- Please tell us something about yourself!
By day I'm a mom who works as a secretary. By night, I don a cape and create emoticons, stamps, and write Lit. Though, looking at my gallery stats, I'm most-known for my stamps.

Traditional Tuesdays #24Hello deviants, welcome to Traditional Tuesdays #24. This week, like past weeks, I'll be featuring fifteen works of art from the Traditional Gallery. Any more than that might cause your monitor to fail in an explosion of awesomeness, and I wouldn't want that to happen! The Traditional gallery is vast storeroom of work that covers many mediums and genres. I've tried to show a good mix of artwork, but I don't have room for them all. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!Traditional Tuesdays #243 years ago in Art Features More Like This

#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing six word stories submitted to Freestyle folder.

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)
Spring has sprung and April showers have started raining down here at HQ.
Winter rain makes me want to crawl back into bed, get a hot cup of coco, and read a book all day. But there’s something different about April showers...
Maybe it’s because it’s less cold outside, or that the days are longer, but springtime rain makes me want to play in puddles.I want to go outside and smell the fresh air, and I just feel rejuvenated. Spring is a time for me to dust off old projects and start new ones. Forget New Years, April's when I get inspired!
I want to hear from you!
Do you play in the rain?
Does spring inspire you?

How did you first discover deviantART?
Just over two years ago, just a few months after I turned 13, a very close friend of mine introduced me to the site. Since then, I have grown both as an artist and as a deviant to love the interactions, community, and spirit that comes with deviantART.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
When I first started, I really didn't understand the site at all, and it wasn't until one deviant, 11thDimensionPhoto, watched me that I really started to see the power of the community.
Until then, no other artists had really looked at what I posted or cared But he did. He gave me feedback, suggestions, critiques, answered questions You name it! That's what I love about this place. Professional and hobbyists who all love art are willing to take a few minutes and actually talk to you, give you suggestions, and allow the

The Gallery Clean-up Project will focus on literally cleaning up the category tree in several ways. This first part of this project, is all behind the scenes. Over the years there have been categories that have been "removed", merged, or changed and there are back-end changes that need to be done to fully remove them from the tree. This part will not affect you, and if everything goes properly, you won't even notice it
The second part of this will be ensuring that the categories are all accepting the correct file-types. If there is a file-type that isn't being allowed in a particular category or

"Eyes like a Shutter, mind like a Lens" - Anon
This week the general thoughts come from Eitvys200 who brought up the topic of Too many cameras around?! It's one that baffles many from amateur to professional in deciding what we, as artists, want to use as our tools. Hopefully one of our community volunteers will cover that in greater depth next week in an article all about choosing your next or even first camera. But for now the confusion comes when you're lining up to take a shot and somebody next to you with a mobile/cell phone is taking the same one and truth be told - it might even turn out better. I broached the subject a while ago of standing at a wedding and being the 'pro' but not the only one with a £500 camera. How do you make yourself unique in a digital world that's fast developing beyond our means and capabilities? Well, you work with
