Hello dear members!
It has come to our attention that it's not always been very clear to everyone who can help out in what way at SeniorSelections
. This journal's aim is to clarify that! If you have questions; keep on reading!
If you are curious about what a Senior member is, and how you can become one, please make sure to check out the FAQ:FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member?
Our most important goal is to bring you the best DeviantArt has to offer through weekly features! We are a group of Senior members who love promoting other artists and showcasing amazing work from all over the community!
How can I help?
There are several ways everyone can help us!
Things everyone can do:
- Suggest artwork into the appropriate folders
One thing you can do to help us out, and it will help a lot, is by suggesting artwork in our Favourite folders. You don't have to be a Senior member to do this! Everyone can submit up to 10 suggestions per week. Please make sure to check out our suggestion guidelines before you start suggesting, though! It has a useful shortlist to all the folders as well.
Anyone can promote, and you do not need to be a Senior member to do this either! If you like what we do, please take a moment of your time to share some information about our group in a status update or a journal.
Things Seniors can do:
We're always looking for more enthusiastic people to post features and select artworks. If you're a Senior, and you feel like this is something for you, don't hesitate to note the group and we'll definitely be having a chat!
- Q: Do you turn people into Seniors? Or do you suggest them?
- A: We don't do either of those things.
- Q: Do I need to be a Senior member to join the group?
- A: No, you don't! Anyone can join, and membership requests are automatically approved.
- Q: Do you only feature artwork posted by Seniors?
- A: No, we don't! Every single member of DA stands a chance of being featured if their work meets our suggestion guidelines.
- Q: Can I suggest my own art?
- A: Yes, you can, and it's encouraged! It's important for artists to be able to promote their own work, so please, feel free!
- Q: My suggestion wasn't selected!
- A: It happens, don't take it personally! It's possible that your suggestion simply did not meet our guidelines, or maybe it will be posted in the next feature. Keep on suggesting, though!
- Q: Can I join the feature team if I'm not a Senior?
- A: No, you can't. The artworks are selected by Seniors only; they are the only ones who will be on the team to select and feature.
- Q: Can I join the team for other things if I'm not a Senior?
- A: Sometimes, we will open applications for members who aren't Senior members, but this is very rare. Currently, we have no such openings.
