Beware of Commission Widget with FriendsI am writing this journal as a warning to people. As I purchase commissions frequently through the point widget from artists on the site who also happen to be personal friends, and I know many other people who do likewise, I feel this is something that other commissioners and artists should be aware of.More Like This
I recently purchased a commission from an artist I work with frequently. I have ordered dozens of pieces from them, all through the dA widget. Over time, I have become friends with the artist, and on occasion the deviant has sent me points for special occasions, as well as a "thank-you" for my business. I mean, don't we all gift points to each other on occasion? Anyhow, I ordered a new commission from their widget a few days ago. It was cancelled, stating fraud was involved. Mind you, no points were given before I ordered that commission. And, in fact, the commission before that went through fine, and no points were given to me beforehand.
Here's where the "technicality" comes in.
Misconceptions about SenioritySenior WeekMore Like This
Browsing the site, it's not that uncommon to find out people expressing their thoughts and beliefs about Seniority related topics. Do you need to be popular in order to become Senior? Can Seniors ban people? Do they have influence on staff decisions? ...and so much on. Unfortunately (or luckily, depends on the point of view ), most of these opinions are just urban legends, meaning they're totally not true. With this journal, I'd like to clarify some of the most popular common beliefs and explain you why they're wrong.
Before we start, I'd like you to read :faq29:. I will be covering this matter several times, but I think it can help to understand the whole thing better.
You need to be famous in order to be choosen as Senior member
WRONG. Fame might help in order to get you suggested, but it's not a crucial requirement. The number of watchers or pageviews on your profile doesn't really influence the choice, since there are members
