Deviation Actions

There we are. After me telling everybody that I would start to be more active on deviantART in the near future, the some pictures I have uploaded so far have lit a fire (a fire of urge - that is ;-)) to become a part of the community.

As the offer in itself isn't that expensive, I went ahead and bought a subscription. Some, or to be way more exact, one question remains however. What on earth do the different "signs" in front of the user names represent. While I was quite sure for some time that a "~" would designate a "normal" member, and a "*" somebody who subscribed to deviantART, the "=" in front of my user name leaves me in the dark.

Well, if somebody could come up with some information on that particular topic, I'd be very grateful.

SOMEWHERE on this website it explains it all, but basically you have such things as:

Beta Tester
Staff Member

And possibly more. BTW, nice gallery. I decided to do some browsing. :)

Ah, well thank you.

I've tried to get some information on this. FAQ isn't very precise (doesn't tell you anything on this matter if I am not mistaken), searching for the different prefixes is somewhat difficult, "escaping" the *, = or ~ may work, but there is no way to eliminate the rest of the username as far as I know.

So, thank you for your help. :)
