Community Operations

What is Community Operations?

DeviantART's Community Operations Department is dedicated to providing a high standard of community development, encouraging innovative and creative opportunities within the community.

Areas which we are responsible for include:

:bulletblue: Providing community support and assistance in the Help Desk.

:bulletblue: Providing customer service for prints and merchandise customers.

:bulletblue: Developing and enforcing policies, including copyright issues, inappropriate content and other violations.

Our department drives an environment where deviants can come together and be empowered within, and by, the community. We believe that community development is not a department -- it's an approach which helps people to recognize and develop their ability to reach their potential. By providing this organized, motivated, accountable and effective department, we are leading the way for deviants to continue participating in a way which they feel listened to, valued and inspired.

Countdown to the next Deviousness Award!

Is this group still active at all?

This group is dead - it has not been updated since 2014. DeviantART's admins and mods do not give a damn about us users, they let thieves steal our art and allow terrorist-supporters to spread their ideologies throughout this entire website.

I know the conversation that I’m responding to is several months old, but everything you said is true. I have been a member of this group since 2013. The last update, which this group had, was almost six years ago. Even I couldn’t have said it better.
