Frequently Asked Questions

For nearly every website we use there is a FAQ section, that explains common questions and that can help you to understand and use that site more easily.

Here on dA the Help & FAQ section is rather complex, searchable and is also structured by topics to make it easier to you. You also can contact the Help Desk via tickets directly and report bugs, problem content or other things here.

To access the help page, you can either go there from the menu, from the footer or via help.deviantart.com directly.

When you are at the help page you have a general overview first. At the left side you can find the menu that will help you to navigate through all the content.

The right side is divided into four sub-sections.

Direct FAQ Links

It can and will happen quite often, that a friend, a deviant you watch or even a random person on dA needs your help with certain things.
To quickly link them to the right FAQ entry you can use their devcodes.
They can be found at the right side, next to the explanation. That code can be used like any other devcode everywhere on dA.

For example if we want to link to FAQ 158 we use the code :faq158: and it will look like this:
