Celebrate DeviantArt's 15th Birthday!

Fri Aug 7, 2015, 12:01 AM
Untitled-1 by marioluevanosAs DeviantArt enters its 15th year on the Internet, we want to take a moment before blowing out our candles to thank the community for allowing us the honor of hosting the site that you call your home for art. After all, it's the community's 15th birthday, too, and in the past few months, we've been making it our top priority to share with you our plans for the future, celebrate the successes of our past, and look to you for guidance on how best we can serve each of you while entering this new phase of DeviantArt's existence.

As DeviantArt enters its 15th year on the Internet, we want to take a moment before blowing out our candles to thank the community for allowing us the honor of hosting the site that you call your home for art. After all, it's the community's 15th birthday, too, and in the past few months, we've been making it our top priority to share with you our plans for the future, celebrate the successes of our past, and look to you for guidance on how best we can serve each of you while entering this new phase of DeviantArt's existence.

With the launch of the DeviantArt Timeline, greater transparency into features to come, and a handful of fixes and updates the community has been hoping for, we couldn't be more excited for our new direction. And it wouldn't have been possible without your passionate interactions, comments, and feedback. We can't wait to make your vision for the future a reality! So help yourself to an extra slice of cake this year. You deserve it!

Before many staple websites you visit today, there was DeviantArt — the home of artistic camaraderie and a haven for inspiration. Though our community was comparatively small way back when, we had heart to fuel our passions, and that heart continues to pump blood through the veins of every artist in our now-huge colony of artistic individuals. It’s been a wild ride during our 15-year growth, and we wanted to share some hard numbers with the community to show just how far we've come.

We’ve created a DeviantArtist Questionnaire. Answer the questions below in a journal and submit it to the Deviant Events category. When done, search for the title and get to know your fellow deviants better by reading their answers. You may be surprised by how much you learn!

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

  2. What does your username mean?

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

  4. Are you left or right handed?

  5. What was your first deviation?

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

  8. What was your first favourite?

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

  1. Visit the "Write a Journal Entry" page, found in the Submit button.

  2. Copy and paste the above questions into the text area of the journal.

  3. If you’d like to include a deviation in any of your answers, use the "Add Media" button and select "DeviantArt" to search for deviations to include.

  4. You can add deviations by clicking on them!

  5. Title your Journal “DeviantArtist Questionnaire” and post it to the Deviant Events category.  Tag it with #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire.

Comment on this journal with a link to your DeviantArtist Questionnaire to earn the 15th Birthday Badge!

Gotta say, the Android app was kind of crappy at that point. Always logged me out, and the login servers wouldn't work.
