Seniority Announcements - January 2013Seniority Announcements - January 20131 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many other

Comment Contest!EDIT: Winners Announced! This contest is no longer open.Comment Contest!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So I reported a day or two ago that I had hit a milestone of comments. In celebration, I bring you a fun contest!
How to win?
Without spamming, make more comments within a week than any other participants! I will be keeping track of your comments and see who made the most.
How to participate?
Fave this journal. This will help spread the word and provide me with an easy way to keep track of all participants.
I will then confirm your participation. I need to do this manually, sorry! It'll only take roughly 8 hours at most, then I'll let you know you can get started
Everyday we're CV'ingAs a Community Volunteer - I do as much or as little within the community that I feel comfortable doing. We're not pressured to do this and that, we don't even have to give a Daily Deviation every day, we choose how we promote our selected galleries/chats and forums and we're not fixed to any specific rule on how much or how little we do. But I do believe that it's important to share with you just what the community volunteers do and why we do it. More importantly it's so easy to get lost on this site full of many people - and miss out on the awesome that's going on. So I'm going to share with you exactly what the latest awesome is...Everyday we're CV'ing1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Comment Contest - Winner!Almost 100 people participated in my Comment Contest Thanks so much for all your enthusiasm, I hope you all enjoyed taking part. I can definitely tell that many did, judging by the comment counts I saw going up. Within the week you got to participate, about half of you increased your comment count by hundreds, and 5 participants even made more than 1,000 comments!Comment Contest - Winner!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
These deviants were `Astrikos, `Nyiana-Sama, ~DeviMonster, *L0NE-W0lf and =Choco-Bunni. Well done all and thank you for your enthusiasm
You have all been featured as a honourable mention... at least! Because of course, only one of you can be the winner. :iconwooooplz:
Actually, just kidding! I have picked TWO deviants who will both receive the full prize set. And here they are!
When it comes to the pure comment count, one person has proven to be truly invincible, leaving her run

Happy Birthday Moonbeam13!Hello allHappy Birthday Moonbeam13!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today marks a very special day for someone, and since this someone is our wonderful team leader, $Moonbeam13, we wanted to write a journal to say...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANIE!
Now a lot of you know Danie as the big chief of the Community Relations team, but I doubt half of you truly know how much of a hard worker Danie is. Not only does she have to look after us lively lot (and by “lot” have you seen how big the CV team is?!), but she works on copious behind the scenes projects on deviantART, making this place just a little bit more devious and better for all us Artists out there in the big dA community. Not only this, but she has to have a life at the same time!
Now we have decided to use Danie’s birthday for three things:
1. To wish her a very happy birthday (of course)

Devious Minds: TopicalityDiscovering what makes us devious.Devious Minds: Topicality2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
How did you first discover deviantART?
I was looking at art online when I was young, and saw `loish's work, it eventually led me to deviantART. I lurked for a while, then eventually joined!
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
I wanted to post my artwork... however once I discovered chats, I learned about GMs (now CV's) and Daily Deviation suggesting. I had and continue to have the loving support that keeps me here, along with my ability to find and collect beautiful artwork- Tis it is all about the art!
What is the story behind your username?
At one point I wanted to do debate in high school, but I've gone off to do other things. I was thinking of good user names and was playing with a random word generator. It came up with the word Topicality, a word I remembered was used in debate. It's used in debate when one is g

I'd like to take a moment to issue a very important "THANK YOU" to YOU! The deviantART Community. On the heels of our 12th Birthday, I've looked back at the projects that my team have undertaken and realized that in the last year, especially, the deviantART community has stepped up and helped to make projects like %projecteducate and %ArtHistoryProject successful. Without your contributions, interest, faves, feedback and participation, projects like these would go no where. I'm looking forward to more community interaction and participation projects and am always open to your feedback regarding projects or endeavors you'd li
