The 18th Chatter of the Month is ... Medjoe
Chatter of the Month #18: Medjoe!We're back, ThumbHubbers! It's been many months since our last Chatter of the Month feature, but recently the chat has been very active again and so we want to start recognizing some our best contributors once more. So, as many months as we can, we're going to be featuring one special member per month and giving them some well-deserved kudos for helping make :#ThumbHub: such a fun place to hang out!
If you haven't seen Medjoe around then you are not in #ThumbHub often enough. A well-known face in the chat room and always bringing a warm, fun attitude to the chat, Medjoe is a frequent participant in our chat events and is in our top 10 most active chatters! He doesn't hesitate to share new ideas for the chat with the ThumbHub team and he is probably one of the most approachable members we have. He's super knowledgeable and fun to hang with so be sure to say hello.

#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!
