PE: Why I would/wouldn't DD an artist that has....
Full title: Why I would/wouldn't give a 5th DD or a DD to a piece with 1200 faves.
Disclaimer: This is a compilation article written by TanyaSimpson, pullingcandy and Lyricanna.  While we do not speak for the whole team, some of the points do generalize.  I want to state now that these are preferences, not hard fast rules and every CV has their own.  The only hard fast rules are that resources must be credited and no one can receive more than one DD within 6 months. 
Have you ever wondered why some CVs include fave or DD limits in their DD suggestion guidelines?  Why some of us will give a 6th DD or DD a piece with 10 000 faves and others will not?  Here are some reasons why.
Why won't you DD an artist that already has 5 DDs?
:iconlyricanna: The reason for this at it's simplest is to involve as much of the community as possible in DDs.  The more detailed version has 3 factors

1. New Submission Process and Thumbnail Examples
In my opinion, one of the greatest advantages to the New Submission Process, are the thumbnail examples and descriptions that appear when you're selecting a category.  It's no secret that we have misplaced deviations throughout the galleries and it's probably the most complained about topic I deal with on a daily basis. My team and I have been working hard to improve the descriptions and thumbnail examples for all of the galleries, and I'm happy

PE: Know what your CVs can DD
During my term as a Community Volunteer who accepts Daily Deviation suggestions it has become very clear that some people simply aren't sure who to suggest a given piece to for a DD.  While the majority of suggesters have a pretty good grasp on which CVs to send the suggestion to, there are enough suggestions being received which would be better sent to a different CV to warrant some education on the subject.  
Each DD selecting CV is assigned a gallery
Some people believe that anyone with an ^ symbol in front of their username can give out DDs and often there is no knowledge that we as CVs look over specific galleries which are the galleries we are allowed to select DDs from.
When looking over :faq18: you will notice the different galleries followed by one or more CVs who watch over those specific galleries.  To be very simplistic, if the piece you wish to suggest is in the Anthro gallery you'd then suggest it to KovoWolf who watches ov

Complaints About Quality Declines in DD's
Complaints about quality declines in DDs
Let's take a quick look at what a Daily Deviation is first. You might remember this article from our last PE week A Daily Deviation is NOT an award, but a feature. If you haven't already, you might want to take a look at it! It's a great read and you can get a good foundation as to what a Daily Deviation stands for.
So, I'll be touching on the subject of "Complaints about quality declines in Daily Deviations". Why is this so important to touch on? That's a great question and I will be more than happy to answer it below as I describe some key factors that are often overlooked in the way of art vs quality.
Addressing Quality of Deviations
"A picture is worth a thousand words." 
There is a lot of this going around "Daily Deviations are losing quality. They're not as beautimous as they used to be.".  How about we step out of the shoes of "what is and isn't art" for just a s

ProjectPorkchop is all about bringing more exposure to the many talented yet under appreciated artists going unseen on deviantART daily. The artists chosen truly deserve more attention based on low counts of favorites, comments, and watchers, added to their incredible artistic talent.

Echo of a Dream by Delawer-Omar Echo of a Dream :icondelawer-omar:Delawer-Omar 866 54
'Why is this a DD?' Why are you asking the artist?
The cool thing about art is that, unlike pretty much everything else out there, it's meant to elicit an emotional reaction.
Sometimes this reaction is rage. Or something close to it.
Sometimes when you see a DD you don't like or get or something, it's doing exactly what the artist intended. But other times, it has nothing to do with the art itself. Because, you know what, we all see DDs we don't "get" every now and then. I'll say it now: I don't like every single DD that has been posted.
More relevant to this conversation, I don't get why some of the DDs that have been posted were considered featurable (which, as we're trying to get across, really means: I don't personally think that some pieces merit 24-hour massive exposure).
And I have the right to think these things.
You do, too.
What's the appropriate place to find out why something was given a DD?
Protip: it's not the art.
It might be a self-suggestion or not, the fact o

Traditional Tuesdays #80

Tue Apr 28, 2015, 6:40 PM

I'd like to welcome you to the eightieth edition of this article. THE STAR WARS EDITION! The first Traditional Tuesdays feature came out on Nov. 15 2011. The night I started this feature, I was bored and just browsing around the Traditional Gallery. I was finding all kinds great artwork, that for one reason or another I couldn't/wouldn't give a DD. It could be because they had a DD recently, but mainly it was for a link to go back and see what they created next, and if they took it to the next level. Now that I'm no longer a Community Volunteer, it can just be things that I like while browsing the Traditional Galleries. So.... here are eighteen works of art that I thought you should see. I can't trust all of you all with anymore awesomeness, you might hurt yourself! I hope you enjoy and find new things to love! Anyway, on with the show!

**WARNING: Viewing these works of art may cause giddiness, elevated heart rates, and happiness in the pants(which could lead to blindness)! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!**
