Tips on Managing GroupsCommunity WeekMore Like This
Groups are those spaces on DeviantArt that allow us to meet and interact with other users, through various means such as Designing, Contests, and Special activities where everyone can freely participate, expose their art in the group gallery, share resources and tutorials of artistic help, other topics, and more! What makes a group a successful? Very simple: It has a Administrative Team whose relations are based on Core Values of DA (I think this can be applied to all groups on DA, not just to the Community Relations team): Community, Respect, Excellence, Artists, Trust and Empowerment.
