Spirit Day 2012
"Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillan In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying. While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe
DeviantART'S 12th Birthday Gameshow: Starting soon
DeviantART Birthday Gameshow is starting in just FIFTEEN MINUTES! We're looking for game players to come and join in our deviantART Birthday Event! In just a short while  3wyl (https://www.deviantart.com/3wyl) and myself are hosting an interpretation of a British game show called Pointless. The idea of the game is that you  have to guess the least popular answer to a multiple answers question. You will be awarded points accordingly, those with the most points will win - but you will have used pointless answers to get there! We'll have pre-judged the least popular and most popular answers by asking a panel of CVs beforehand for their responses. Want an example? Name
Gallery Makeover Project
Hello everyone :) Recently my team and I worked tirelessly on a project to help improve the gallery descriptions and thumbnail examples.  While that project was indeed tedious with almost 4,000 categories in our system, it was also educational.  What I learned from sorting through thousands and thousands of categories was that we have a lot of redundancy and a lot of categories that seem to have been created on a whim that are now simply homes for junk. Over the years, the desire to appease niche communities and people who just wanted a specific area has led to some categories that go up to 4 levels deep, and it's really no wonder it's so c

It's time to get out the glitter and glue, candy hearts and flowers, because Valentine's Day is  here!


The Valentine Exchange is here! We asked you to create valentines and submit them to the Be My Valentine category. Now, it's time to send your love-filled deviations to your deviantART friends, family, and secret admirers! Starting today through February 16th, the "Send a Valentine" button has been activated on deviations in the
Be My Valentine category, so you can send your custom creations and valentines made by others. Love is in the air!














HOW IT WORKS




CREATE THE LOVE


Create valentine deviations and upload them to the Be My Valentine category.
These will be shared with everyone on deviantART!



SHARE THE LOVE

Between Feb. 12 - Feb. 16, choose a valentine to send to a fellow deviant, click the "Send a Valentine" button, and complete the form. You can let them know who the sender is or remain anonymous!






FEEL THE LOVE!


Your friend will receive the valentine deviation you chose and your message in their Notes!











Heart-Filled Hints






The valentine deviation you upload will be available for everyone to send, so you might want to avoid putting any specifics on it - a deviant's username, real names, etc.





You can upload as many valentine deviations to the gallery as you want!





Fallen in love with one of your designs? If you've included text suggesting it's for a lover, resubmit the design as if it were to a friend or from a secret admirer!





You can send valentines without uploading any of your own, but why not make another deviant's Valentine's Day by sharing your artistic gift with the world?






Latest Valentine Sent












Watch Valentines Sent  Around the World






The deviantART World Map highlights deviantART activity in real time. Every icon that flies across the screen is an action by a deviant -- a deviation submitted, a Favorite, a comment, and so on. Just for Valentine's Day, we've added a special icon to represent valentines sent, so you can see the devious love fly across the globe!

Hey guys I know these directions suck so heres the real way to submit your valentine exchange stuff with the send valentine button

1. Click submit art from your profile page
2. Choose your valentines card to upload
3. In categories, choose "community projects" > Holidays > 2017 > Valentine Exchange

and thats it 
Have fun!!!!

Leave it to dA. . . These are the most horribly vague directions I have ever seen.
I entered a deviation in the Valentine's Day Gallery, because I wanted to send MY Valentine deviation, not a random one.
And as many others have noted, there is no Send Valentine Button on the Deviation I uploaded to the Valentine's Day Gallery.
What a waste of time. :(

I loved it very much~
I sent an adorable kitty to all those I'm close to, they loved it~<333
Though, I didn't much like the nasty anonymous I got from a bot account sending place...
That one was horrible. ><
