Deviation Actions

team's avatar

Seniority has been a cornerstone of DeviantArt since the site's early years, and is an award given to those who have made their mark on the community. These outstanding deviants have been recognized for their level of interaction, helpfulness with others, kindness, sincerity, and many other traits. These deviants can be recognized by the medal icon that appears next to their username, and in 20 years, less than 2,000 deviants have received it.

The following five deviants, having shown a kindred spirit that has led to continued positive community interaction and involvement, are the most recent recipients of Seniority. Please join us in congratulating them!


Instantly recognizable for a myriad of tutorials that make the rounds of art communities across the internet, the Etherington Brothers have been a long-standing resource to DeviantArt, providing guides, feedback, and more to artists of all kinds.

@EintoeRn has been a familiar face in the community for many years, routinely sharing excellent photography of his own each day while also constantly commenting on other artists' works and featuring artists and their works on his own profile.

A steady backbone of the comic community on DeviantArt, @ARVEN92 and her works have been recognized and loved for many years. Her passion is matched by her encouragement of other artists, providing tutorials and positive feedback for creators.

You agreed on receiving DeviantArt notifications from DA by DA on DA when you joined.

To unsuscribe, you can deactivate... Or simple ignore them by x-ing them and moving on^^

Just sending you a reminder that your site sucks ass now and it doesn't work and that the old site is better.

(Update: The site had an aneurysm when I kept trying to edit this comment. So...Good job guys, eclipse is GREAT!!)

Why comment this on a SENIORITY ANNOUNCEMENT post?

Why not file a bug report so that they can look into it, eh?
