Chat Tutorial #3 - Customizing your Chatroom!Ez a Tutorial Magyar nyelven is elérhető!
Let's get started
Let's see if there's any official FAQ about it:
There's quite some! I recommend you to always read these FAQs before doing anything or visiting :#help: on dAmn
So, let's try out something, shall we?
When you enter your freshly created room you'll notice the following things:
The Title are will be empty
There will be no topic area
You will be placed into 'Guests' by default
You may ask the following; Why am I in the Guests privclass?
It's simple: because the room is in need of setting up and since you've just created it, no one ever joined it before!
You must promote yourself into the highest (Founders is the default privclass for that) group there, so others will know that you're in charge of that room!
How to do that?

What 'privclasses' are?
Privlasses (Privilege Classes) are like groups what can be customized. Each group has privileges (abilities or rights) what can be given and taken by the Founder or other chatroom moderators with admin rights.
Here is a little example of privclasses:
Default privclasses what you get if you create a new chatroom:
Here is a little explanation for each:
The original creator of the chatroom. They has the most rights (for example: if the room if 'closed' and by that I mean: the ability for joining is taken, the Founder can still join the channel.)

Did You Know - BlockingBlockingDid You Know - Blocking1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
While many people tend to report other deviants they don't get along with or they feel harassed by to the HelpDesk right away, your first action should always be blocking.
Whatever reason you have to report someone, by blocking you avoid any further communication with certain deviants.
This action is immediate, as you don't have to wait for any staff member to take action and you can just enjoy your dA experience without that blocked deviant.
Personal reasons like disagreeing on a topic, not liking someone or similar won't end with a ban of that other deviant.
Contacting the HelpDesk just adds to the queue of tickets unnecessarily and makes it more time consuming to focus on important reports.
Only in case of serious harassment you should contact the HelpDesk.
If you are blocking someone it's an action in both directions. That means that not only the other person gets blocked from you, but you are automatically blocked for them as well.

PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?You're browsing deviantART or are simply checking your message centre and find a wonderful art piece. You want to suggest it as a Daily Deviation because you believe it truly deserves to be seen by the community as a whole. But how to properly suggest a DD? This article will explain the process.PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Things to check before sending a suggestion:
The first thing you need to check is if the artist has been given a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. Volunteers cannot feature anyone who's had a DD in that period of time with no exceptions, as this has been hard-coded into deviantART's system.
"But how do I check an artist's Daily Deviations?" you may ask. Simply go to their gallery, click browse and scroll down. If they have any DDs, you'll be able to find a link to them at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can add "/dds" after their profile url and click enter on your browser's address bar.

So I noticed that when I try to explain certain things about chatrooms for helpees, they have no idea where is the title, topic area of the chatroom or if that even exists. I'd like to help with that.
I made a screenshot of my chatroom, cropped out certain areas and marked them with words
I'll write down some things about those areas and I'll try to include some tips as well.
So here we go.
a - Chatroom tab
This is a very useful thing. Why? Because instead of one million browser windows, you can have one window open and have as many connections to dAmn chatroom as you want. You can close one as well but without leaving the other rooms as well.

How to Draw Manga! Hands Introduction
Hands are a very important part of drawing any character, often in cartoons the hands are caricatured, but in anime and manga this is often not the case (except in chibi form). Understanding the anatomy of the hand can assist all animanga artists. Hand proportions are also important, lest the artwork suffer from tiny or huge 'yaoi hands'.

Hands are made up of segments, muscles and skin over the bones. Often block forms are used to get the basic shape as shown here:

The usual way to submit a journal to a group is via the groups platform.
Therefor go to your group and click at the "Journal" tab, to get to the journals page. There you can find the "+ New Blog Entry" button at the top left .
If you click that you will get an empty form for your new journal entry. From there you can write down all the latest information, can choose the category it should be added to and can add a skin (Super Group status is required for that).
Once you have added all needed information, codes and did fill out the form correctly, you can now submit your journal.
