DD Suggestion Guidelines

Thu Apr 5, 2018, 11:41 AM

Hi, I’m squanpie  a Community Volunteer for literature. This means I have the honour of choosing Daily Deviations. But I need your help! The lit gallery is huge and I can’t possibly read everything. So I need you, the community, to send me awesome suggestions. :la:




FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?


“An assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff and volunteer members who wish to showcase work they have found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.”

It's not an award. It means a work gets displayed site-wide for one day. It means I was impressed and thought the rest of DeviantArt ought to see it.

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

You can submit literature to any current lit CV: me, akrasieldoughboycafe, or BeccaJS. Please only suggest a work to one CV at a time.
 
How can I suggest a deviation to you?

It's simple! Send me a note with a thumbnail of the piece and the title 'DD suggestion.' One or two lines why you like this piece is helpful, but not necessary.




General guidelines:


Bullet; Black Deviants can’t receive a DD if they have had one in the last 6 months.

Bullet; Black Deviants who have been inactive for longer than a month are ineligible.

Bullet; Black Deviations that are part of a current contest are ineligible. You can suggest them after the contest has closed and the winners have been announced.

Bullet; Black If a deviation uses a preview picture (an image above the text), it must be properly credited in the artist’s comments in order to be eligible.

Bullet; Black Self-suggestions are welcome. Promoting your work is a necessary skill for authors!



 

My personal preferences:


These may change, but I'll try and keep this section as up to date as I can.

:bulletblue: I welcome all genres and forms: prose, poetry, creative non-fiction, visual lit, etc.

:bulletblue: Technical quality is highly important. Submissions should have been spell-checked.

:bulletblue: Fanfiction is fine, but bear in mind that I’m part of very few fandoms, so chances are I won’t know the characters or setting. I judge writing on its merit as a standalone piece. The same goes for chapters of any original long-running story.

:bulletblue: I’ll consider deviants with several past DDs, but ideally, I prefer to feature people who have never had one or haven't one had one recently.

:bulletblue: I appreciate writing that’s innovative or impactful. Show me something I haven’t seen before. Show me something that’ll leave me thinking after I step away from my computer.

FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?


And finally, it's probably worth pointing out that while I probably won't reply to suggestion notes, I still read and consider every one. If something doesn't suit me and I still feel it has merit, I may pass it on to one of the other CVs. If you're suggesting DDs, or simply reading and sharing literature on this site, you're all awesome! :heart:



Realised I'd not posted these up yet - thank you to those who've sent me suggestions so far, and in advance for any suggestions in the future!
