Provided by the community for consideration by deviantART; Please comment on this collection or note me if you'd like a particular idea to be added to this collection for review!!


We're very aware of the contrast issues, pagination, Feedback (out today!) AND the various concerns. We're currently very focused on Deviation pages, making sure that the Faves system is optimal and that commenting is breezy.
Thanks for your patience, and for your support!

Founder Perks! The other day I mentioned to @Heidithat I wasn't able to get some of the badges, sometimes even for events I worked on, due to some CEO reason or another. So she hooked me up retroactively. Don't bother asking :llama: , it's only possibly for the truly 1337.
We got a staff release tonight with Feedback v2 (simple & advanced) and I'm using advanced mode (which most resembles the current MC) a whole lot. If you're testing Eclipse you should hopefully see this update within a week or two.
It's really early to tell, but so far it has really grabbed me. I'm in Eclipse and my behaviors are a lot more familiar and similar to green, and I'm on a bit of a rampage replying to people.
So to celebrate, I'd love to hear from you, answer any questions you might have presently, and generally make myself available for any feedback.
You can:
- Send me art to look at and comment on.
- Ask me DeviantArt Eclipse questions.
- Ask me general DeviantArt questions.
- Ask me most questions.
I'd really prefer not to discuss:
- Specific moderation desk cases.
- Interpersonal issues between you and other members.
- Politics.
Ask away!

I have the privilege of making the ultimate day-to-day decisions on deviantART in my acting position as Chief Executive Officer. I Co-Founded deviantART in April of 2000 with jark along with a founding team of individuals including matteo most of whom joined around launch in August. Honorary founding team members include: mccann, chris and spot.


I've had a passion for building online communities since my addiction to game BBS's (doom, doom 2, heretic, hexen, etc.) when I was 12. I co-sysop'd the Netherworld BBS in Northern Virginia at that time (till I was 15) and fell in love with the possibilities; especially as they applied to a global community. deviantART mirrors many aspects of BBS's and as time progresses you will find even closer comparisons to the quality of community MajorBBS and other platforms were able to support. Of course, most of you have no idea what I'm talking about when I say BBS's. Ugh.

I've now spent more than half my life building online communities. Seeking to deliver a mainstream application that captures the depth and passion that I felt for BBS's in my youth youth, rather than my now youth. :D

I'm very proud of the success of deviantART. Especially the fact that we took the road less traveled and arrived a little later, but on our own pure and untainted terms. We're doing it our way.

And that ladies and gentlemen ... feels like a milli-millillion dollars.


Before you read about the future, read about the past. And I think with a past like that and a team like this, it is a bright future indeed.

It is our intention to create the most powerful outlet in the world for known and unknown artists alike.

Most importantly we intend to take our time to do it right. For the first time in history there is connection and communication between artists and fans on a massive scale. deviantART represents a breakthrough for the promotion and exposure of otherwise stranded artists in all corners of the globe. Our job is to make sense of the possibility, and craft it in a responsible manner.

And that's what I'm here to do along with the strong team we've assembled here at deviantART; until the job is done.

(If you have something real and tangible to propose that may help deviantART in one way or another; Feel free to send me a note. I read every note even if I don't respond. Forgive me on the responses, there are thousands of notes!)
