Well, I suppose now is as good a time as any for the re-launch of TheList. So in this post, I'll be explaining exactly what this group is and what it now aims to do.
Originally, this group was used as a sort of directory for deviantArt clubs. (You know, those things we had before groups!) It was extremely effective back in its day and had quite a big footprint here on the site. Over 1,800 clubs were hand listed complete with icons, links, descriptions, and organized by category. I can only imagine what the original admins had to do to make it all happen. Later when dA introduced Groups, they included an automated directory that had every group listed and categorized. Needless to say, that made groups like TheList mostly irrelevant. TheList fell through the cracks as the admins shifted their focus to new and exciting projects.
Recently, I came along and adopted TheList with a totally new plan for it. Imagine journal features... in group format. A collection of the best art here on dA. It's the kind of group that you watch because you are actually interested in the art, not because you want to promote something. Deviations are hand requested. Nothing is submitted. That way, only the best of the best get through to your inbox.
So what do you do now? Not much. Just click the +Watch button and enjoy the elite selection of art in your inbox.
