Alpha tester
As an alpha tester, I have to test deviantART features before they are released to beta testing. It means testing with different types of accounts and groups and different browsers. Alpha testers recruiting is closed for now.

:heart: dAWishingWell founder
dAWishingWell is a group to help deviants with their dA wishes like getting more watchers, gathering some points, exchanging llamas and more. Everybody can join and make a wish (but please read the rules first).

:damphyr: Gangsta of Love (AWW)
Angels Without Wings (AWW) is a bi-weekly feature of three deviants who are well known by the dA community. The founder of this project is Nameda and you can see details here.

SeniorSelections admin
SeniorSelections stands to feature premier artwork from the deviantART community through weekly features from each gallery category. As the anthro gallery and the photography - horror and macabre admin, I will feature one deviation a month in each of those categories. See my guidelines if you want to suggest an artwork.

~ Who Give Kind and/or Uplifting Words When and Where it is Needed
~ Who Feature and Promote Projects, as well as Contests and Challenges
~ Encourage or Otherwise Assist Deviants Who Need Support/Help

Annissina ~ coastbeachartist ~ davincipoppalag ~ Dieffi ~ Egil21 ~ Felizias ~ gigi50 ~ PaMonk ~ Stygma ~ Sassy--Cat ~ suezn ~ TheStockWarehouse ~ Tigles1Artistry




Before Getting to the October Announcement, the Admins of Angels-And-Gangstas would like to award a posthumous AWW to MagicalJoey, who has passed away at the age of 31. Jo was incredibly active on DA, collecting points for prizes, being an admin for ten groups, promoting others and being an avid commenter and a stalwart member of the Literature Community. Now, Jo is an angel with real wings. May she rest in peace.

Ten years’ worth of goals and dreams,
Time enough to plot and scheme;
Time to love, to live and be alive,
Instead of just the normal – survive
The day, the second or hour –
Ten years is enough to grow in power.
To grow, now therein lies the root of all
Evil, good, and potential falls.
Ten years’ worth of love and lies,
Of slacking, procrastinating and sorrow’s sighs.
Time to dream, to maybe hope…
And if not, there’s time to noose that rope…
But no! Now’s not the time to think of that,
I’ll draw another card from life’s mad hat –
Maybe out will come a rabbit, or a hare,
And I’ll find more time awaits me there –
But alas, poor Joanne, we knew her well…
Though time’s story is one we hate to tell.
Ten years’ time, where will I be?
What will have become of me?
Dare I hope? Dare I conceive
This tiny little positive seed
Within me – dare a f

You’ve got a secret pocket
Hiding deep within your soul.
In it you hide emotions;
Buried alive in the deepest hole.
They bubble and they brew inside,
They fester and they rot…
…until up they come and out they explode,
Whether you want them to or not.
You are a natural ‘carer’,
A person who is kind at heart.
You overflow with love and compassion,
And that is just the start.
You’ve been ‘through hell and back again,’
And baby – you’ve survived!
So I’ll shout it from the rooftops:
I am glad you are alive!
You not only hear, you listen,
You love, you’re kind, you care.
When I need a breath of encouragement,
You are always there.
Twice you’ve visited me in psych wards,
Heck, we even met in such a place,
And just knowing that you’re still around,
That I can still see your lovely face,
Brings calming and relaxing auras,
To surround my shattered so

There was some stormy weather,
It had me bunkered down.
My world was full of pain and tears
And horrid little frowns.
I sent out a few feelers,
Tiny tentacles tinged with hope…
Because if I did nothing,
I’d be dangling from a rope.
And one-by-one they answered,
Friends…champions to my plea…
They showered me in kindness
That brought me to bended knee.
Word of hope, comfort and life,
Planted seeds within, though small in size.
And, like yeast reacts in dough,
I felt love begin to rise.
It rose up within my broken heart,
It soothed my shattered soul.
It gathered scattered spirit-shards;
Turning me back towards more whole.
Though every cent and sentence
Contributed to this new-found calm,
Your gift went beyond the call of duty,
It soothed like healing balm.
So for your help I thank you,
With all that I possess.
Without you I’d be nowhere,
And I’d have nothing left.
You are a shining angel,

She is still, silent stone;
A statue with eyes that follow your every move
As you bustle from countertop to fridge and back again.
Occasionally she speaks,
Alerting you to the fact that she is still there –
Still waiting for you –
As if you might have missed her
The last five times you nearly tripped over her Junoesque form.
Not moving from her position centre-pathway around the room,
She occasionally quivers.
Whether from excitement or fear or obsessive hopefulness I am not certain.
It does not matter what item you pick up,
She watches indiscriminately.
Her eyes follow your hand movements,
And her ears perk up at the rustle of a packet
Or the loud thock of a jar being opened…
Though you know she does not eat pickles,
She knows you are doing something with food –
And she wants.
She is still, silent stone;
A statue with eyes that follow your every move
As you bustle from countertop to fridge and back again.

The AWWs for October 2018


Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

caddman ~ ChasMandala ~ Barosus





caddman suggested by MEP4Photography

I'd like to suggest an AWW for caddman. Skot's super nice to everyone. He gives many of his CraftCrow awards (more than one type) in his comments on many Devs a day, as an encouragement; it's the way I see them when I get them. He definitely does journals supporting other artists...a lot! He's an admin of seven groups. He's been a member here on DeviantArt for 16-years and knows a lot about the site and the community. If that's not supporting other artists, I don't know what is.

Added by Sassy--Cat ~ "Skot is very kind, always personally makes his appearance on your page to thank you when you fave his work and never fails to comment and reply."

ChasMandala suggested by MEP4Photography 

Charles is an awesome member of the community. He's very generous and caring, dedicating each and every dev he does to a fellow watchers or to everyone. He's cofounder of two groups. He's done many features in the past; I've noticed his older ones are gone, but I believe that may be due to his almost leaving DA because of a spammer on his account .But he's here and always a wonderful, giving, empathetic person on DA. We could use more of those like him.

Barosus suggested by DanielaIvanova

Edward is a writer and a dreamer and an art appreciator to the core who has personally been a huge motivation and inspiration to me, always supporting my endeavours with enthusiasm and love. At the moment his huge heart, his enthusiasm for art and his selfless and giving nature benefit not just me but a multitude of deviants - be it through supportive or whimsical comments, encouragement or critique on others' work, starting out meaningful conversations or simply by being his quirky and hilarious self. As an artist himself he has done countless reciprocative pieces, which is exactly the kind of community spirit that I've only seen on dA and which sparks such joy in my heart. Over the last 170+ days he has been dilligently running his unique and outstanding Fantasy themed feature of top notch art, that includes works not only from dA but also from Artstation, thus fostering this vital link between the communities. And it's not just his personality that is uplifting and brightening - his art is a treasure chest of quirky characters, passionate poems and an overall hugely imaginative mind that can be an inspiration for us all. I doubt there is a single soul who has brushed against Edward's captivating persona that wasn't touched or inspired by him. He is one of the people whose response and whose activity I am most looking forward to on dA.

UszatyArbuz ~ brennennn ~ Lora-Vysotskaya

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

UszatyArbuz suggested by WDWParksGal 

Aleksandra is such a wonderful person and is busy, busy, busy on DeviantArt. So busy, I have no idea how she does it all! She is an admin for eight groups, does commissions for journal profile pages, as well as coordinating journal skins, and also provides tutorials and free skins and widget backgrounds for the community, including codes for non-core members.

Aleksandra posts numerous and varied journal features, has a yearly Halloween Scavenger Hunt with prizes and fun for anyone who participates, replies to comments and notes and makes sure she remains active in the DeviantArt Community. She truly is an Angel Without Wings!

brennennn Suggested Anonymously

@Brennenn received Deviousness in 2007 but has not rested on his laurels. He works in several groups that focus on DeviantArt and ways to improve the site and the community experience. An avid commenter, he is readily available to encourage others while showcasing the work of others in feature journals and status updates. He was once the Literature CV and stays active in the Lit Community.

sunlight reflect upon a
moment of silence
  morning.if my words fall
upon your ears   gentle
and serene
littered leaves below
your feet, gathered
and whispering
an ocean vast
of constellations deep
our minds the root,
our hearts beneath
at once we soar
over snowy peaks
the caress of morning
upon our cheeks
  missionary.out where the wind crawls along my back
lead me to your roost and wander
whisper through the waves of my mind
pillars of ice pierce to hold your spine
fragile yet strong, and the tortuous black
is near, his mountainous frame
wrapping you in velvet rind
a drop of blood in wine.





Lora-Vysotskaya suggested by MEP4Photography

I'd like to nominate Lora aka Lora-Vysotskaya for an AWW award. She is always promoting contests and other information in journals to anyone who watches her or sees her page. She's very involved in the PhotoMapip community. She's an admin to seven groups. I see her helping others and leaving comments addressing all kinds of topics to other deviants. And she's a super friendly person who is caring and is helpful to all.

A Day In Your Life Challenge - Day 30

The Last Day!

A Day In Your Life - Day 30 by Stygma
On Fridays, I'm not supposed to work, but they called me from the office and I have to spend some time exchanging calls and e-mails to fix that #1 crisis that was actually nothing.  After, I had to mow the lawn. Then I got the news that my cousin, who I've seen just yesterday at the funeral, was rushed to the ER for respiratory distress. What a day! I needed another "leave-me-alone" moment, so I went to a wildlife park at 20 minutes from home; a quiet place where you can walk and observe wildlife.

The picture I've chosen today represent a lot of days of my life, as the mallard duck is very common in here. But even if I have thousands of pictures of mallard ducks, I still take them! This picture is not perfect, the duck is not facing the light, but I love it! I was able to capture the details of the feathers and bark, and I just like the colors and the reflection. And this is me, I love imperfect things and imperfect people! :)

I hope you had fun with me on the last 30 days! 
A Day In Your Life Challenge - Day 29

A Day In Your Life - Day 29 by Stygma
Today was a busy day! Work in the morning, lunch at the restaurant with friends, my uncle's funeral in the afternoon and then traffic to get home. I wanted some peace, so I took food and water, my camera and my phone, and went to another parc nearby.
