Community voices Vol. 4: SeniorityMore Like This
Welcome back to the Community voices! This time we are talking about Seniority.
dekorAdum - Senior, Deviousness award, fomer CV
When I was a noobie on the site I would be so excited to see that a Senior Member commented or faved my piece. Obviously I would be excited for any favs and comments - still am - but for some reason, just because they had a tick (`) I felt special. I had no clue who they are, what did they do to get a different symbol than mine.
Later on, when I got to meet more and more people and become friends with seniors, volunteers and so on, I would learn their stories, backgrounds. They didn't seem so scary anymore. They do stand out, but they are just regular deviants just like anyone else.
Some people are looking at the subject as a mission or some sort of goal. They would do anything just to get it. I think it is, in a way admirable, however if you are pretending to be helpful, supportive then th
Dear deviantART...I am refusing to use the rebranded name because, I'm annoyed about the rebrand. I'm annoyed about your direction, your lack of focus in key areas and your lack of communication. I said I'd never be a bitter former staff member, but it seems that I am.More Like This
Last year you spent a lot of money on a rebrand, this year you've cut 50% of your work force, entire departments have been decimated and peoples lives have been thrown upside down without notice. But you never really communicated to anyone why. You still don't, you're not telling the community what's happening and that's only going to hurt you. People will see that helpdesk tickets take longer to get a response, people see that lots of people are no longer staff and you're not letting them know why. You know that people have a belief that the site is dying, you're only furthering it right now. How much of a better state would the site be in if the rebrand hadn't happened? Would I and the rest of the people that lost our jobs without notic
My #WatchForeverMore Like This
I'm jumping on the #WatchForever bandwagon and have compiled a list containing a few of my favorite deviants. The following artists are not only tremendously talented, but, having had the opportunity to meet a handful in real life, I can also attest that they're good people.
My years on DeviantArt have provided me a wealth of friendships I wouldn’t otherwise have had the opportunity to make. These friends have opened me up to different ideas, cultures, and points of view. I'm forever grateful to have talked with every deviant who has crossed my path — at a Deviant Meet, or even in a note, comment, or journal.

WHY to get noticed on dAThere are tons of articles out there that describe what you should do to get noticed on dA. The advice contained pretty much comes down to "if you are active, people will notice you":More Like This
fave other people's art - they might fave yours back
comment on other people's art - they might return the favour
use your comments to actually talk to the other artist; don't just say "wow", but tell them why you liked their art; give critiques
use the chats & forums
use your own journal to its full advantage (tell people about yourself / art features / ...)
take care to make your userpage nice-looking and informative
give out llama badges
find some groups to submit your art to
and don't forget to actually post something to your gallery regularly
While all of this is certainly true (seeing as when you don't put your name - with the attached link to your page - out there, no one will have a chance to find you to begin with), the question that remains for me is:
Why do you
