What 'privclasses' are?
Privlasses (Privilege Classes) are like groups what can be customized. Each group has privileges (abilities or rights) what can be given and taken by the Founder or other chatroom moderators with admin rights.
Here is a little example of privclasses:
Default privclasses what you get if you create a new chatroom:
Here is a little explanation for each:
The original creator of the chatroom. They has the most rights (for example: if the room if 'closed' and by that I mean: the ability for joining is taken, the Founder can still join the channel.)

Let's get started
Let's see if there's any official FAQ about it:
There's quite some! I recommend you to always read these FAQs before doing anything or visiting :#help: on dAmn
So, let's try out something, shall we?
When you enter your freshly created room you'll notice the following things:
The Title are will be empty
There will be no topic area
You will be placed into 'Guests' by default
You may ask the following; Why am I in the Guests privclass?
It's simple: because the room is in need of setting up and since you've just created it, no one ever joined it before!
You must promote yourself into the highest (Founders is the default privclass for that) group there, so others will know that you're in charge of that room!
How to do that?
Technical Info about "Click Here"I don't know why everyone was so scare about this issue on Click Here. But here the codes below that I safely editted out the malicious tags where you guy seems to worry about.More Like This
I retrieved safely on the codes the website sent me and I haven't take a look at the website yet in real time, I am going to use Linux on Virtual Machine to check on it. For now the code I provided below, it won't run. If you copy and paste and then execute on your browser, it won't run correctly. I changed the tags so that it break the web browser's standard, therefore won't run as normally.
I think the primary site you're aiming for is the top frame part of the site when you click the "Click Here" link.
I don't care much about this "virus" as DeviantART claim, but it is at your own risk. You decided to click on it, that your fault.
I also posted my own program in C# that run in .Net Framework 3.5 to retrieve the packets. I hope I help a few in this technical issues for those who click on the Click H
How to: Make thumbs big in features?I get this asked a lot!More Like This
Back when they introduced sta.sh, I didn't really use it. Because it seemed hard to get used to. I always wrote my articles in the old way.
Then I toyed with it a little and noticed that is is something really awesome!
Not to mention that the only way to make articles and journals is through Sta.sh Writer.
So I assume not so many if you know that there is a way to make thumbs big!
That is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is add big in front of a thumb code!

This is the "regular" size

This is the big size
Of course: without the spaces between the colon ( : )

The Strain of Regular UpdatesJust a quick update for all of you and some words of what some might call wisdom... but I just call "learning as I go"....More Like This
For those of you who work full time and also try to do your own side projects, and also have a family and other priorities, you'll understand that life can sometimes start to feel overwhelming, even though you're doing the thing that you love to do each and every day. That's understandable.
Right now, I'm currently running my own Animation/Motion Graphics/illustration company (Thinkmore Studios) to try and pay the bills, while also doing a 188 page graphic novel for Scholastic with a quickly approaching deadline, while also juggling time to spend with my wife and kids and also doing those things around the home that need to get done. (My grass is pretty long). Top it all off with the desires to do some sketching now and then and straining to do some kind of regular updates to blogs, deviant art, etc etc. It can get daunting to say t

Premium Member 'til Hell freezes overWhat's this?More Like This
I've seen this question countless times now. And I decided to answer it
Premium 'til Hell freezes over......
Basically it means that the owner of the account (deviant) has the perks of being a Premium Member until forever, but that is only for Volunteers and Staff Members.
Since recently, deviantART made it possible that you can buy the status for yourself, and it lasts for 7 years.
So who receives it?
Staff Members , Volunteers (and those who bought the status! )
For Staff and Volunteers, after their term is over or they step down from their positions, they become Senior Members. Their 'til Hell Freezes over Premium Membership doesn't go away.
Becasue they work and worked really hard for the Community and deviantART.
And don't you think that this is a really nic
