dAmn / Forum

If you want to communicate with other deviants, dAmn(deviantART message network) would be the right place for you. It is divided into the chatrooms and the forum.
While the chatrooms can be used to talk in real-time with other deviants, the forum make it possible to interact with others about a specific topic for a longer time and with breaks.

At the forum page you get a list of all the different forum sections that are available to you. There are also forum sections that are only meant for certain deviants like seniors or Premium Members. Even though they are visible to you, you don't have access for them if you don't belong to this group of deviants.

It's divided into nine sections with sub-forums, that should help you to find the right place to interact with the right audience faster.
Each of those comes with a little explanation, that helps you to understand what they are about. Within the sub-forums you also find additional sticky threads with rules and other important information.
