The Great Comment Sprint!
The Great Comment Sprint! Deadline: Oct. 24thHappy October, Hubbers!Get ready to put your comment shoes on and win some prizes from the team at ThumbHub!The Great Comment Sprint will challenge you to engage with as many deviations as you can from around the community by leaving a comment. Comments are a fantastic way to encourage, educate, and admire the artists you already know and have yet to meet. You can offer advice, compliment someone's skill, or even ask a question about their artwork. This is a feel-good challenge where there are no losers--only participants who are helping to make DeviantArt a better place. But there will be some prizes awarded! Interested in how it will work? Let's get into the details.,Your Mission!Leave comments on recently-submitted artwork. YEP. That simple! Comment on as much artwork as you can before the deadline. For each qualifying comment you write, you will earn 1 point. We will award a bunch of different prizes at the end! Having trouble finding new artwork to comment on? Your Watch page is a great place to start but even BETTER is the brand new sidebar! All the art will be right at your fingertips. Don't have the sidebar yet and want it for the sprint? Send @JenFruzz a note and ask!What is a Qualifying Comment?To earn points, your comments must meet some criteria! Otherwise, it would be too easy Comments must be on deviations submitted on or after October 1, 2020 (according to the time stamp on the deviation page).Your comment must be meaningful. The idea is to engage with what you're commenting on. Be specific with what you like about a piece, offer advice to help the artist improve, ask questions about what they submitted, etc.! *The judges will determine if a comment is meaningful or not while reviewing entries.One comment per artist. For example, if you submit multiple comments on different deviations by the same artist, only one of those will count for The Great Comment Sprint! DeviantArt is home to millions of artists--let's comment on as many as possible!Have questions?

#ThumbHub is the main chat room on DeviantArt for sharing YOUR artwork. The room was founded in July 2015 by JenFruzz and deviant-garde to become a one-stop location for conversation and promotion for deviants around the community to take advantage of. The ThumbHub group is the center of our non-chat activity. Here you will find contests, features of our chatters and their art, among other activities. We invite you to join the chat and group and keep up to date on all our happenings!
Since then, the room has become one of the most popular on the chat network, with a 24/7 stream of conversation and opportunities to network with other artists and share your creations! The room's main feature, ThumbHubBot, will post your artwork for you with simple commands... Making it super easy to promote your DA gallery and favorites!
Anyone is welcome to join us! We're like your friendly, neighborhood convenience store... Servicing all of your art-sharing needs, 24 hours a day.
So click that link to the left and "Enter the #ThumbHub Chat!"
The moderators of #ThumbHub chat are also artists and creators in their own right! They are in the chat room to ensure that the room runs smoothly, to answer your questions, and to help share the art of the room's participants. Feel free to poke any of them and say hello!
The #ThumbHub moderators are chosen and overseen by the room's founders, deviant-garde and JenFruzz, who also help to moderate and frequently hang out in the chat room. They are generally friendly--only known to bite on occasion--so you can always say hello to them too.
Please send a note to ThumbHub if you are interested in becoming a moderator. Be sure to include the country you are from and your timezone. We keep an archive of applications for future needs!
