1. Donate Points
Donate any number of points into the donation widget on my front page. You can donate anonymously if you wish.
2. Pick Your Preferences
Pick your options by including your preferences in your donation message.
For Watches, Llamas, Faves, or Comments:
Include the keywords watch, llama, fav, or comment anywhere in your donation message. You can include any combination of these keywords. For example, watch llama comment would get you watches, llamas, and comments.
If you do not include any of these words, it will be assumed that you want watches, llamas, and favs.
Include up to five thumbs :thumb391883033: of your artwork anywhere in your donation message. You can combine critiques with any of the above keywords. For example, :thumb391883033: watch would get you critiques and watches.
Once you donate, you will be sent a confirmation note and be added to the appropriate lists within 15 minutes. You will be sent another note when your balance runs out.
Can I choose how many points to put for each option? Say 100 points for llamas and 100 points for comments?
No, you cannot.If you want exactly 100 points worth of llamas, please donate 100 points for llamas. After that runs out, then donate 100 points for the comments.
I just donated points. Why haven't I been added to the Featured Deviants lists?
Alice updates the Featured Deviants lists on my profile page every 15 minutes. If after one hour you have not been added to the appropriate list(s), please send me a note.
I just donated points. Why does Alice tell me I have no points with her when I comment with #stats?
Wait at least fifteen minutes from the time of your donation. If after one hour you have not been added to the appropriate list(s), please send me a note.
How do I change my preferences?
To change these preferences at any time, type #prefs into a new comment on my profile with your new keywords. For example, if you previously selected only watches but also wanted to include favs, you can type #prefs watch favs. If you had previously included three thumbs for critiques and wanted to add two more, you would include all five thumbs in the comment.
You can also donate one more point with your new donation message.
What happens if a deviant unwatches me after getting their points?
Send me a note with their name, and I will ban them from earning further points at this acount.
How do I know how many points I have remaining?
The number below your icon displays how many total points you have left remaining. You can also comment with #stats on my profile to see your remaining balance.
How do I know how many watches, llamas, favs, etc. I have received so far?
Comment with #stats on my profile to see the list of what you've received.
How do I gift a friend with a feature?
Donate points with the word gift and the :dev: code of your friend's username. For example, if you type gift :devdatrade: comments llamas, I will be featured for comments and llamas. When you gift a feature, Alice will treat your donation as though it came directly from the friend you donated for. Your friend can therefore use #prefs to change their feature or #refund their points as though they were the one who had originally paid.
There is currently no option for anonymous donations. Your friends will be notified that it was you who gifted them with points.
Can I get a refund of my points?
Type #refund in a new comment on my profile, and you will receive a refund of up to 75% of the points that you have remaining on your balance. You must have a donation widget on your profile to receive these points!
If your remaining balance is above 50 points, there will be a 10% reduction in your refund (this accommodates for the 10% bonus you receive for donations above 100 points)
If your remaining balance is above 250 points, there will be a 20% reduction in your refund (this accommodates for the 20% bonus you receive for donations above 500 points)
Donate to be featured for critiques
To be added to the Critique Me list, include up to five thumbs of your artwork (:thumb391883033:). Please make sure that these artworks are critique enabled, which means that you must be a premium member in order to receive critiques
All critiques given with this service will be marked
To see whether a critique has been given from a deviant using this service, check the replies on the critique. All critiques that come from this service will have a reply from me in the comments.
Refunding for unfair critiques
In order to ensure that donators receive fair and legitimate critiques, deviants who critique using this service will only be paid after their critique is approved by the artist. If you feel that the critique you received was unfair, please send me a note within 48 hours with a link to the critique. A human will review the critique and refund your points if the claim is found to be true. The deviant who sent the critique will also be warned or banned.
If you do not send a note within 48 hours, it will be assumed that the critique was fair, and the critique will be added to your total.
