Deviation Actions

communityrelations's avatar
For quite some time now, the Community Relations team has been writing articles called Did You Know?. The articles focus on lesser-known facets of the deviantART website, and aim to educate the community on those specific parts of the website.

To help you find the information you are looking for, we have composed an overview that lists all previous Did You Know? articles and their topics. With every new article we release, we will update the overview, to ensure it remains up-to-date.

As we write this article series for you, the community, we would like to know: What aspects of the website do you want to learn more about? Or what can you teach other deviants about? If we decide to use your suggestion we will be sure to credit you.  Let us know your ideas through our :pointr: Feedback form
Thank you for your input in advance!

Well now I know that a certain person I'm contacting is reading my notes, but not replying. Idk why, I'm being very peaceful to them and just asking their opinion on something. :/

You know, these are so informative that it would be great for them to be searchable in the Help & FAQ section. Just a thought. The FAQ is helpful and searchable, why not the Did You Know? articles which do more to help elaborate on the community and the site as a whole? (and do a heck of a great job answering common questions by community members!)

Will this list be inclusive of the fella and communityops Did You Know articles? Cause... I know where to find links to most of those as well (not in a concise list) if someone is interested...

FritsPlays's avatar
I'll have to check, and will come back to you on that! Thanks :)
lost-angle's avatar
I look forward to the answer you may find! :)

:thumbsup: You all show do more facts in-depth, like Daily Deviations & how they came to be, and maybe some history of the deviantART staff behind their symbols.

Doesn't hurt to know your history! :D
FritsPlays's avatar
Great tip! We will definitely keep that in mind! :D
