Proactive Deviation Moderation

Proactive Deviation Moderation

DeviantArt is announcing a more proactive approach to moderation. For more information, read below. Fostering a community where artists are able to share their work, express themselves, and grow and learn has always been a cornerstone of DeviantArt. Our Terms of Service and Etiquette Policy were crafted with protecting artists first and foremost, and that remains the case. That said, we want to improve the way we enact and take action with regard to these policies, which is why we’re announcing a change to how we intend to handle deviation moderation. Proactive Moderation DeviantArt has historically used a reactive moderation system for deviations. This means that on many occasions, action against a deviation in violation of our policies would only take place after receiving a report from the community. For many years, this process served the community’s needs, but as the Internet has evolved and as our community has grown, we’ve come to realize this process isn’t enough. Internally

Coming Together as a Global Community

Coming Together as a Global Community

During these unprecedented times, COVID-19 (coronavirus) has impacted countless lives and left many people around the globe homebound in an attempt to limit the threat of the virus by way of social distancing and quarantine.

It can sometimes help to have things to do, in order to maintain mental and emotional well-being. With that in mind, we want to provide you with a starting point for fun, simple activities you can do from the comfort of your own home. On DeviantArt :deviantart: We have a wide array of topics to explore for anyone who wants to view wonderful art. Do you like cats? We’ve got you covered. More of a dog person? No problem.

saturday morning coffee.

Seattle held many secrets in its dreary rainfall: college kids having sex in the 7-11 bathroom, a drug dealer staking out Rainier Valley for new clientele, and, worst of all, a secret agent working at the Starbucks on 5th Avenue.  I had watched him for months now and every day something suspicious seemed to happen. Today, the strange behavior revolved around the chocolate syrup pump sitting surreptitiously behind neatly placed metallic coffee mugs for sale.  The perfect hiding spot for seedy behavior!  A woman I earmarked as pleasant-enough looking leaned over the counter cautiously, eye over her shoulder to detect any prying eyes.

Deviousness Award

When asked, what is the most ironic user name you have seen on this site, one name jumps to mind for a lot of people. And that would be `lazybutt Seemingly everywhere and anywhere all at once giving critiques, offering advice and helping newcomers is all in a days work for him.
And then besides that he is always full of great suggestions for the site itself, approaching the admins here with well thought out ideas, and many a recommendation for Daily Deviations or just great artists for us to shine some light on.
And if allllllll of that were not enough then there is the =DailyDeviants project that he has been behind since 2005 as well. So yes, `lazybutt is quite the opposite of his namesake and we couldn't be happier about that.
