Popular results for Browse Something for EveryonePopular results for Browse3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The deviantART community is incredibly deep and diverse. Every day, amazing art is produced that appeals to all tastes. Our goal in sharing and exposing the deviations in deviantART's Popular section is to showcase this depth and diversity as convincingly and fairly as we can.
DeviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results is known as Fair Exposure. The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics (styles/genres/art forms). Fair Exposure increases the probability that someone will see something that they personally like in Popular results. In short, with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. It uses an algorithm that is "fair" in nature -- meaning not biased toward any topic, yet still based on popularity.
Why is Fair Exposure n

What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?
I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.
What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!
I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.
Beautiful dress, beautiful hair.

Wednesday, Preview Night of Comic-Con
Wednesday, July 17, 2013
When the bustle of tourists in Downtown San Diego is replaced by the flailing of fandoms, and the street signs around the Convention Center have changed from English to Dothraki (not Klingon, like past years), you know it’s time for San Diego Comic-Con 2013!
Wednesday the 17th kicked off this year’s Preview Night, and energy was high as this year’s Comic-Con sprang into motion with a flurry of activity. Many attendees treat the three-hour preview as a time to scan the showroom floor, mentally map places to hit on the later dates, and, of course, buy the must-have items that may be gone by Con’s end. There’s not a lot of cosplaying -- although there is some -- and vendors as

Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

Before contacting the CEA we ask that you do the following:
Check for a relevant +faq entry to make sure your question isn't already addressed there. This can save you a lot of time waiting for a response that you can easily access.
Check recent #communityops blogs to make sure that your issue hasn't been addressed there.
If reporting harassment, have you blocked the deviant and hidden their comments already?
Collect any relevant information about the issue, links to comments, journals or deviations

Gallery Makeover ProjectHello everyoneGallery Makeover Project2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Recently my team and I worked tirelessly on a project to help improve the gallery descriptions and thumbnail examples. While that project was indeed tedious with almost 4,000 categories in our system, it was also educational. What I learned from sorting through thousands and thousands of categories was that we have a lot of redundancy and a lot of categories that seem to have been created on a whim that are now simply homes for junk.
Over the years, the desire to appease niche communities and people who just wanted a specific area has led to some categories that go up to 4 levels deep, and it's really no wonder it's so confusing for people to figure out where to submit their artwork.
The conclusion I've come to is simplicity. While I'm not about to rip apart everything and make 6 stand alone categories, I do believe that there is a lot we can do to simplify the category tree. That includes some of the following:
