Gallery Makeover ProjectHello everyone Recently my team and I worked tirelessly on a project to help improve the gallery descriptions and thumbnail examples. While that project was indeed tedious with almost 4,000 categories in our system, it was also educational. What I learned from sorting through thousands and thousands of categories was that we have a lot of redundancy and a lot of categories that seem to have been created on a whim that are now simply homes for junk.Over the years, the desire to appease niche communities and people who just wanted a specific area has led to some categories that go up to 4 levels deep, and it's really no wonder it's so confusing for people to figure out where to submit their artwork.The conclusion I've come to is simplicity. While I'm not about to rip apart everything and make 6 stand alone categories, I do believe that there is a lot we can do to simplify the category tree. That includes some of the following:1. Merging categories that ma

Stock and Resources: Policy ClarificationThe Stock and Resources community is an integral part of deviantART, both for having an active community of its own as well as providing high quality stock to all deviants. As this community has grown so much over the years, so has the amount of invalid stock and resources that have been provided by some deviants. The Stock and Resources community feels like this reflects negatively on them, the volunteers have a hard time trying to teach people about valid stock and how to use it correctly, and it gives an appearance that deviantART Staff tolerate so-called “art theft” or copyright infringement.In this article our aim is to reinforce our policies regarding stock and stock use and clear up some misconceptions.Stock and Resource submissions to deviantART:What are Invalid Stock and Resources?In short, invalid stock or resources are anything which you do not have full permission to upload. This incl
A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.The "This is crap!" ArgumentAs an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their

PE: Introduction to the Digital Art categoriesHi! Welcome to the Digital Art categories central!

PE Daily Deviations- Presentation of your workHello all! Well we’ve had a fascinating week so far; a week which hopefully has provided some insight not only to the process of DD selection but helped you understand what we look for in DDs as CVs. As we draw to the end of this week, I bring you an article which will whet your Saturday with thoughts that don’t just apply to the DD feature, but something which should be a consideration to everything you submit to dA. I am talking about deviation presentation. Why is Presentation important?Art isn’t always about just being “creative”. There are techniques and skills which develop over time which contribute to the quality of the work you produce and alongside this comes a developed understanding of good presentation.Good presentation could be anything from cropping a photograph, to spell checking your literature. These are common sense things that in the rush of wanting to show off your creativity can sometimes be
Cancer, we're coming to get you! Just bumping this journal because it means a lot to me!Race for Life 2013Hello all!It's that time of year again when I am asking for your help in a cause that is close to my heart. Race for life is a 5K charity run raising money for Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research do life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.This is my 5th year in a row doing Race for Life, and every year it becomes more and more important to me. There are far too many people suffering with cancer; too many families, friends and individuals and the work Cancer Research do is so important to help find a cure.This year, the lovely Kaylee (CurvyLemon) and my sister Rachel (racheljj) are joining me in the race- and I encourage any woman in the UK to sign up too!This is me last year, 28 weeks pregnant and dressed up as superwoman because I surpassed my target. If I raise more that my target of
Notices and things!I have been away! (Bet you didn't notice!! ) Lee and I were at Minamicon this weekend just gone for a long weekend filled with anime, manga, and all round good times. As usual we dragged Amazonofexeter along for the ride I somehow managed to get one of the more weirdly named prizes in the Masquerade for my C.C. artbook costume, I was in a bit of a daze at the time but it had something to do with how big my dress was. (I must add that no small people or orphans were harmed carrying around my voluminous skirts all weekend! John will remember the full name of it no doubt, I was too busy at the time trying not to throw up from nerves lol )So, now thats over and done with I will do stock as soon as I find some convenient time. It was far too bloody cold at the weekend to take more than 1 or 2 shots just to show the dress off.I still also have snow shots to post from earlier in the year. I still also have contest winners which are wai
