How to: Make thumbs big in features?I get this asked a lot!How to: Make thumbs big in features?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Back when they introduced sta.sh, I didn't really use it. Because it seemed hard to get used to. I always wrote my articles in the old way.
Then I toyed with it a little and noticed that is is something really awesome!
Not to mention that the only way to make articles and journals is through Sta.sh Writer.
So I assume not so many if you know that there is a way to make thumbs big!
That is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is add big in front of a thumb code!

This is the "regular" size

This is the big size
Of course: without the spaces between the colon ( : )

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.

Default privclasses what you get if you create a new chatroom:

Presenting: Community VolunteersA BRIEF OVERVIEWPresenting: Community Volunteers4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, we've been proud to offer the opportunity to volunteer with deviantART. We believe that our volunteers play a crucial role in helping our community develop and grow in positive ways.
The Gallery Moderator (previously known as Gallery Director) and Message Network Admin (MN@) teams have become a much loved and appreciated role, with many volunteers proudly detailing their experience in applications to enter into successful careers with companies who all recognise the value of volunteering in such a vibrant and eclectic community. Did you know that some of our now full time Staff were once volunteers? fourteenthstar, Moonbeam13, Pachunka, aunjuli, y2jenn, damphyr, Tachy-on, dxd and Ikue all volunteered in various roles -- and we are all very proud of that fact!
Over the past few months, we've been taking a close look at the volunteer experience -- what's worked, what hasn't worked a

So I decided to start forum Tutorials too since the ChatNetwork ones are pretty popular and a lot of people said it's easy to understand it and it makes me happy
Not to mention that I wouldn't like to leave out the Forums since it's an important part of deviantART too! So let's get started!
BUT before we do anything - I'd like to ask you to read the following FAQ!
How to post a thread?!
I get asked a lot from newbies to the Forums that how can one submit a thread? There is no button for it and they can't see any links or something!
It's really easy! All you have to do is select the appropriate Forum you'd like to post your thread to and scroll down a little!

Seniority Announcement - 11th Birthday EditionThis article celebrates our latest additions of Senior members in our community.Seniority Announcement - 11th Birthday Edition4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
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 others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.
Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority as part of our 11th birthday celebrations. They have all been nominated

Here is a brief history of April Fool's pranks deviantART has played on it's members. Please note that information is still missing (mostly older years) - this is because some April Fool's pranks were never recorded or are lost in the millions of journals on the site.
2001 - "jark is Arrested"
jark is arrested in Disneyland for cutting in line and refusing to move to the back.
2004 - "British Takeover"
April Fool's Day 2004 marked the day the British took over deviantART. New rules were enforced on that day, including spelling "color", "colour" and saying "Cheers guv'nor" instead of "Thank You".

Community Volunteers - A Memoir!You may recently have seen -> Our Favourite Memories and Moments an awesome article written by fourteenthstar bringing together lots of dA staff members memories and moments.Community Volunteers - A Memoir!4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So The Community Volunteers got chatting and we decided we needed our own collection of memories - because we have some awesome ones!
With the merge of the Gallery Moderators and MN@ Volunteers has come the collaboration of one BIG team and it's lovely getting to know the 'other side' so to speak. So it's with great delight that I share our massive response to fourteenthstar's article with Community Volunteers - Our Memories
I cannot pick a single memory, but I would say that whenever someone tells me that the DD I gave them made their day and that they are so happy makes me smile. That, and the time I saw MyntKat's butt on webcam.
