There appears to be a new rumour flying around in various journals and comments that deviantART will be deleting accounts.  The information seems to be spreading using messaging similar to what is here:

On 21 of may, deviantart will be deleting all accounts. Not plz accounts. accounts ,  But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on your deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that your not fake.

Thank you for listening

-deviantart staff 

First, allow me to reiterate that there is no truth to this.  DeviantART would never convey information this way and official information is always posted through hq

If you are being spammed with false information, feel free to hide and block the user and report them to the Help Desk.

So what will happen on May 21st? Happy you asked!

May 21st is National Memo Day and National Waiter and Waitresses Day.  So on May 21st we should all write a memo to ourselves to avoid internet rumour and then we should celebrate our success by going out to lunch and tipping our wait-staff well 

Have a great day! :heart:

Look at all these rumours, surrounding me everyday..

Hey!
I want to deactivate my account for some reasons. but unfortunately, I deleted my Gmail account long time ago and now can not recover or rebuild it (Gmail won't allow me). Deactivating Deviantart account needs Gmail.
Any idea. How can I deactivate my DA account without needing gmail??

Still there's lots of accounts that have zero works, zero faves, zero comments, no avatar, and "last visit: 460 weeks ago"
If this doesn't just screams "I registered, but either done that by accident and\or have no interest in returning here ever", then I don't know what does. Those account names are better up being freed for re-registering. They're deader than disco, and what's more, they never been alive in the first place.

I am aware of sites that close accounts that are inactive too long, but the part about having to share the journal to prove your account is active is classic chain mail. I have seen hacker warnings on here that employ similar logic.

Devious Dreams: The winners!The Devious Dreams campaign launched in March 2019 as a chance for DeviantArt to grant artists the tools they need to make their creative evolution a reality. With over $20,000 in prizing available to make dreams come true, thousands of deviants shared a wide range of creative and heartfelt dreams for their artistic future. We particularly enjoyed seeing the support everyone put forward for each others’ creative goals. Now that the campaign has come to a close, it is our honor to announce the recipients of Devious Dreams grants—a collective of artists from all walks of life with a broad spectrum of creative ideas. Some of these deviants requested drawing tablets so they can create every day. Others asked for traditional art supplies, or photography tools to more efficiently create and share their art. Some asked for crafting supplies like sculpting or sewing materials. The projects each artist put forward were varied and inspired, and it’s our pleasure to help bring these dreams to life.Dream Recipients! "Cyberpunk 7 Deadly Sins" by Araiel"ORCHARD ORGANISS Animated Trailer" by G-flux"Traditional & Digital media join forces!" by LadyYomi"Superhero Summer Camp" by Upgraderath"trauma doll shop" by lukedraws101"The G.O.A.T that Pain Produced" by AresAkatsuki"Undertaker" by Yuudraws"Aria Gloria - Sanctus Dirge" by xMelonDrop"For my comics and art" by PaperSalamander"Perspective Practice" by Scissoria"Pixel Pool" by chiruruzuhenu"Survival" by InsomniacSharky"Comic artist and commissioner" by alcoholicmeower"I'm with you" by Catziiia"The cosplay of my dreams" by Nyima-chan"Landscapes of the World" by Crisssis"One-man-Cosplay-Photography" by DreamyArtCosplay"Anatomy for concept art" by NitaoART"Stylus Away" by RumbyFishy"Speak Out Through Art" by alpacaalltheway"Animals!" by KATG14"Poppin!" by Shy-Steamer "Getting into technology" by CYWlL"After the Bloodbath" by IcePoemix"Ruby Slippers" by PrincessFaeron"Game Changer" by Rivynfleur"Innovative Applique" by One-Violet-Rose"Don't forget" by redxroundsxart"Business...

A DeviantArt staff member individually replied via comment to each dream recipient on April 3rd or 4th to inform the respective deviants they were selected, and the reactions of the recipients alone made the campaign well worth undertaking! Some of our favorite reactions include this excited comment from @LadyYomiThis heartfelt reaction from @xMelonDrop This enthusiastic retelling from @NitaoART This sweet response from @ne-ONblue This eager reaction from @JollyMutt And even this reaction from @DreamyArtCosplay We also awarded an additional $2,000 in prizing to deserving deviants as part of the Devious Dreams livestream! Performer and voice actress Erika Ishii hosted the festivities, featuring voice actor Gary Anthony Williams doing readings of literature submitted to DeviantArt, clay sculpting games with @humblehills @ekud @HeartsUnchained and much more! If you didn’t get a chance to see the stream when it was happening live, have no fear! You can still watch the full video!Share Your Thoughts! This campaign has been a labor of love for everyone at DeviantArt, and we’re truly looking forward to seeing these artists achieve their creative evolution in the future.
