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

Art-for-Artists Project Stopped by dA TermsHello Deviants,Art-for-Artists Project Stopped by dA Terms3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A few people may have already noticed that yesterday my commission widgets were removed by the dA Staff. This was due to the fact that this project actually violated some terms and conditions. This was unknown to me as well as a few others that I had checked with. I was sent a note to clarify what went on, and asked for permission to share it with you today to clarify any issues.
I'm noting you today regarding your use of the Commissions widget.
While we understand and appreciate your desire to help your fellow artists with a charitable project of this type, unfortunately taking donations via the Commissions system is not a permissible usage of the widget. While your intentions were valid, unfortunately allowing such usage would open us up to many other areas of abuse by those with less noble intentions.
As a result of this, the commission purchases have been refunded to the original buyers and the funds removed fro

Recently, we've been going through all of the site's features and settings to assess usage, traffic, community reception, and how the feature helps contribute to deviantART's goals.
dAmn It, the system where deviants can submit and vote on funny quotes from Chat (originally called "dAmn" or deviantART Messaging Network), is a feature that gets extremely low usage and traffic.
On November 30, 2013 dAmn It will be officially phased out. Until then, the feature has been removed from the main site navigation but will still be available via the Chat page for those who want to archive any quotes.
Phasing out unused and outdated features allows us to focus our resources on improving existing features and building new ones to hel

Instead of developing two separate versions of the site—a desktop version and a mobile version—we've formatted the desktop site to fit into a mobile browser. This allows the mobile site to offer many more features than th

The More Menu
Previously, the site’s main menu could be found under the arrow drop-down in left corner of any page. We’ve often received feedback that it was too hard to find, and that its contents were overwhelming. In response to feedback from our recent Beta Testing release, we’ve taken the opportunity to re-evaluate how it displays.
The main menu has since been moved to the right of the search bar, and has been placed under a “More” heading, for easier discovery and usage. We’ve removed items that are already duplicated in other menus on the main navigation, so that you can find what yo
