Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
This article marks the latest announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 900 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 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 quarterly community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by multiple deviants, Staff and Volunteers. 


Congratulations everyone! :dalove:

Celebrating Deviousness August 2012

Wed Aug 1, 2012, 12:01 AM




Deviousness Award






Congratulations to `Thiefoworld






What is this Awesome Achievement?


The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.



 


Who is `Thiefoworld?



 
`Thiefoworld has made his mission to fill our community with vibrant colours and positive attitude. His illustrations are instantly recognisable and are somewhat iconic at deviantART. Thiefoworld's weekly webcomic is a must read for all deviants, and we love that his journals are filled with community spirit and encouragement for others.

You know you've picked the right deviant when you have to double check that he hasn't received the Deviousness Award already.

We are absolutely delighted to bestow the Deviousness Award for August 2012 to `Thiefoworld!



Congratulations to `Thiefoworld

In this, the first of a new, regular newsletter, I'd like to take a moment to give you an overview of the Community Operations department.

DeviantART's Community Operations Department encompasses the Help Desk and the Copyright and Etiquette Administration (CEA) teams. These teams are dedicated to providing a high level of support within the community via our help desk portal as well as what we call the "Moderation Desk", which is where all of the deviations that have been reported as being unsuitable or in violation of our policies, await review from a member of staff.


Community Operations Staff are spread out across the globe on a mix of many time zones. Some work from a physical office in deviantART HQ in Los Angeles, some work from their homes in America, Canada, Bahamas, Germany and the UK. This may not sound like a real job, but like any employment, there are clearly laid out roles and responsibilities as well as continuous supervision to ensure that people are meeting expectations as well as receiving ongoing personal development.

The team are all deviants - every single person on the team was recruited from the community. Some were Community Volunteers before applying for full time positions, so we're very familiar with the deviantART community and how it works.

Copyright & Etiquette Administration



Within Copyright & Etiquette Administration , the Team Leader is aunjuli and consists of damphyr, y2jenn, kozispoon, godofodd and dxd. In addition, we also have realitysquared, who develops documentation, training and co-ordinates specific projects alongside assisting with tickets. If you ever contact us regarding stolen or inappropriate deviations, ban queries, harassment enquiries, or any other cases which involve the enforcement of policies, these are the people who will handle your reports.

Help Desk



Within the Help Desk , the Team Leader is ewm, and consists of Thunderstatement and Ikue. This terrific trio are responsible for the handling of all community support areas, including general help with your account, as well as investigating bug reports and submitting issues to our devious Technology department.


Now for the science part...

Here's a snapshot of some recent statistics surrounding tickets and reports.

In the Past 3 Months we have solved

  • 3,476 Bug Reports
  • 13,238 CEA Tickets
  • 6,269 General Help tickets
Over the past week we have handled:
  • 336 Bug Reports
  • 959 CEA Tickets
  • 629 General Help tickets
  • 2,620 moderation desk reports.

Community Development & Recognition


In addition to overseeing the teams, I have the honour of selecting deviants for certain recognitions within the community. One of these recognitions is the highly sought after Deviousness Award, which is given out to one outstanding deviant on the first of every month. If you haven't done so already, hop on over to dekorAdum and congratulate him on receiving the award on the 1st of June!


If you would like to suggest someone for the Deviousness Award, please feel free to send me a note. Please ensure that the suggestion is someone who has been a Deviant for quite sometime (not just a few weeks or months!), and is someone who has made outstanding effort at participating in deviantART on many levels.

In addition to the Deviousness Award, I also select individuals to receive what is known as "Seniority". These are deviants whom are being recognized as being role models within the community.

FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member?

I hope that this provides you with some more information about what we do and who we are!. Keep following our communityops account for regular editions of this news article, and let us know what you'd like to see included.

Stay devious! :dalove:

Deviousness Award

Congratulations to `thorns


What is this Awesome Achievement?

The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.

As 2012 kicks off with fireworks around the world, we're also celebrating in style with the latest addition to the recipients of the illustrious Deviousness Award.

Who is `thorns??

`thorns is long time deviant who has been a continuous bundle of energy for the literature community. She has been ever present, promoting positive ideals that bring the community together. `thorns is highly regarded as being an excellent communicator, always friendly and open, accepting to all types of writers regardless of experience and presence.  

`thorns's well known Word Wars Chat Tour has not only exposed many literature groups, but invited the community into dAmn chats and offered a place for those who participate to get to know each other, whilst having fun doing so. The Word Wars in particular are friendly competitive games that encourage anyone to continue their writing projects helping individuals develop their own work. `thorns always approaches these with enthusiasm and encouragement, inviting others to join in, even if they are not linked to the group.

Aside from her personal mission to get the literature community chatting, she also is the founder of #Beta-readers , a group that matches authors up with readers to help provide critique and develop writers. `thorns is always involved, always supportive of the community, the events we run and is a genuinely friendly, humble and extremely welcoming shining star.

We're absolutely delighted to bestow the Deviousness Award for January 2012 to `thorns. Congratulations!

Congratulations to `thorns

Congratulations to `
Synfull






What is this Awesome Achievement?


The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.









Who is `Synfull?


`Synfull has firmly rooted herself at the heart of the emoticon gallery and made it her mission to bring pixel passion to every part of deviantART. With a personal gallery that's filled to the brim with extremely detailed emoticons and informative tutorials, Karen has developed a reputation with many deviants for being somewhat of a legendary emoticon artist.
