Once upon a time, I was a volunteer, and speaking from experience, it can be a both blessing and a curse.
I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s
The CR Stamp ProjectThe CR Stamp Project3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Stamps are a great way to show your support for a project, a person or a group of people, spread awareness for a cause or promote a contest. It is also valid to do them just for fun, with just a funny image and/or message.
Since their introduction to the deviantArt galleries, millions of stamps have been created with a great variety of messages, both silly and serious, and you can see them all over the place, from journals to profile widgets.
The Community Relations department exists to encourage, facilitate and develop the relationship with our deviantART community. Our goal is to nurture our community by encouraging, stimulating artists to create, collaborate, and participate in a friendly, safe, and supportive artistic environment.

Better hurry if you want to enter!
Welcome to the monthly challenges!
Each month you will be given a theme and two categories from the deviantART related gallery. You then have one month to create something for it. In which way you interpret the theme is up to you, but it has to be for one of the categories chosen.
For each category there will be one winner and one runner up.
As September already started, there will be only one category/winner/runner up for this month.
From October on, we do it like explained above.
Theme + Category
When working on your entries, try to be creative and don't just do the first thing you have in mind. Some categories will be more challenging than others - that's for sure - but maybe it's a good way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Maybe you will like it!

Jan/Feb AC Monthly Challenge [+winners]At the end of each year, many of us take the time to reflect on what the year has brought in terms of both highs and lows. We look to the good things for encouragement, whilst paying mind to other things we'd like to improve on in the coming year. Some go as far as setting themselves formal goals and resolutions to achieve, whilst others simply internalise desires to go one better.Jan/Feb AC Monthly Challenge [+winners]2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is often the case among artists as we look back on our progress over the year. We celebrate the things we achieved, progressed in and became more skilled at. But we often think of the skills we're yet to develop and resolve to work on that in the new year.
In keeping with this spirit, the theme this month is New Years Resolutions. We're going to challenge you to embrace new crafts and skills you've always wanted to have a go at, but have never gotten around to.
Because I'm slightly late in kicking this off, and I'd like to give you as much time as possible to delve into new crafts, this is going
Fellas World - Contest Contest ended -see the winners here http://fav.me/d7cqu2v.Fellas World - Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We all know Fella and dA wouldn't be the same without him anymore.
But did you ever wonder who he really is? Where does he come from? Why is he alone?
He is always at our side, lurking here and there, making your dA experience a little brighter and introducing you to new things all the time.
Your mission is to show us the world of Fella.
How does he live? Does he have pets? Is he the only one or are there other 'creatures' like him? Does he come from a distant planet? Is he the result of an experiment?
What does he eat? Or maybe he doesn't need to eat at all?
What is he doing in his freetime? Does he like to cook or read a good book? Or is he more of an adventurer, exploring the world outside?
Below you can see a few artworks, that already show Fella working for dA or in random situations. Maybe these inspire you to come up with other details of his life.

Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

Did You Know - Community VolunteerCommunity VolunteerDid You Know - Community Volunteer2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Community Volunteers (short CV) are deviants that help the community out by providing them with a specific contact point in relation to galleries, chat and forums
Every CV only acts within the areas they are trained in. That means that generally, a gallery CV will not moderate chatrooms or forums or give DDs for artworks in other galleries (unless having permission). And no chat/forum CV will give DDs. In some instances, some volunteers are trained in Chats & Forums and Galleries and have permission to cross-over. To be certain, you can view the whole roster of volunteers here and see what area a volunteer is representing.
Any volunteer can be easily recognized by the heart, next to their username.

The oldest cake in the world is 2 pieces from the wedding cake of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert dated 1840 (yuck!)
