Our Llamahog Has Been Found!After deviantART staffers spent the last 24 hours flailing through HQ and wringing their hands with worry over the whereabouts of missing Llamahog Gertrude Bicknevis III, he has just been found splashing about, without a care in the world, off the coast of Bora Bora with his first cousin, Llamafish H. Dawkins. Authorities believe the sudden disappearance of the Llamahog stemmed from an ill-planned attempt to spend Llamahog Day, quote, "Celebrating the way HE wanted to." (Editor's note: This sentence was translated from a series of whinnies, snorts, and a bit of spit by renowned Llamahog Linguists.) According to reports, the Llamahog fled his den in Los Angeles after receiving word that US officials were still insisting on calling the February 2nd holiday "Groundhog Day," despite the fact that, as the Llamahog's snorts seemed to suggest, Groundhog Day had been in steady decline since the premiere of the delightful Bill Murray comedy that shares its name. "When will it be MY turn to teac
Spirit Day 2012"Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillanIn memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe that it's anti-bullying message is relevant to every community. It only get's better, if we take the pledge to make it so. Practice compassion and understanding, and treat others how you would like to be treated and we can make a difference. Show your support for this anti-bullying me

Skribble Contest: Let's Get Creative! TweetA mere eleven years ago, deviantART met its humble beginnings. Since that time, we've grown to be the world's largest online art community, but even a site as massive and established as deviantART had to start somewhere. We never forget those few small sparks that launched deviantART to be where it is today, and that's what we're celebrating during our birthday season.For this year's community event, we're embracing the idea of starting small and creating something amazing from just a few quick sketches. We've started this work for you and challenge you to finish it with the pizzazz that only the best art community in the world co

deviantPOINTS: An updateOver the past few months we’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the way that members in our community have been offering points as payment for certain types of services within deviantART. We’ve seen all sorts of creative uses, from offering to critique your work for a few points, journal features for a few more points and my personal fav -- avatars, journal skins and any other sort of art commission for points. It’s been great to see deviants use their experience and skills to fund their super group upgrades, prints purchases and even treating their friends and families to their very first item of deviantWEAR.As time rolled on, we noticed a new trend creeping in. People were not just offering a small number of points for a task that they’d normally do as part of their daily deviating -- people were offering thousands of page views for hundreds of points, and there seemed to be no limit to the amount that could be purchased, or offered.

Scrap Trap UpdateDid you know that there was more than one way to submit to your scraps gallery? In fact there were galleries in the category chooser that redirected your deviations to your scraps gallery. If you submitted to: photography > snapshots or literature > poetry > journal poetry or Traditional Art > Drawings > Doodles and Sketches or Digital Art > Drawings > Doodles and Sketchesthe submission engine automatically redirected those deviations to the more suitable scraps section of your user gallery.While the best of intentions were behind enabling these scrap traps, overtime,

Daily DeviationsRecently, I announced changes to Daily Deviations in this journal and I'm happy to say that the response has been favorable. To review, we have made the following changes:a> The "3-month rule" is now the "6-month rule" meaning an artist cannot receive another DD if they have had one in the last 6 months.b> Daily Deviation selectors are limited to a maximum of one selection per day. This has been put in place to focus on quality vs quantity.The hard-coding of these new guidelines is now in place (special thanks to ZombieCoder for that ). These changes are part of an ongoing initiative to better our Dai
Improved DMCA Reporting SystemHello, deviants! In an effort to keep the community informed and to provide the best possible experience for our members, we wanted to inform you of changes to our reporting system.DeviantART is dedicated to protecting our artists, and in an effort to be able to more quickly handle complaints by deviants who have had their rights infringed on, we have changed the way we receive complaints from the artist or the copyright holder.In the past, we took reports by the copyright holder in two different ways: An informal report via the Report Violation tool and a formal complaint via contacting the Help Desk. While both of these methods were effective, they presented many setbacks.The informal report did not gather all the necessary information for a formal copyright complaint and was prone to misuse by well-meaning deviants who would attempt to report images they did not own the copyright to
Presenting: Community VolunteersA BRIEF OVERVIEWOver the years, we've been proud to offer the opportunity to volunteer with deviantART. We believe that our volunteers play a crucial role in helping our community develop and grow in positive ways. The Gallery Moderator (previously known as Gallery Director) and Message Network Admin (MN@) teams have become a much loved and appreciated role, with many volunteers proudly detailing their experience in applications to enter into successful careers with companies who all recognise the value of volunteering in such a vibrant and eclectic community. Did you know that some of our now full time Staff were once volunteers? fourteenthstar, Moonbeam13, Pachunka, aunjuli, y2jenn, damphyr, Tachy-on, dxd and Ikue all volunteered in various roles -- and we are all very proud of that fact!Over the past few months, we've been taking a close look at the volunteer experience -- what's worked, what hasn't worked a
dASAW 2012 Interview: #ArtBit:iconstaffappreciation: dASAW Interview Series: ArtBIT Hello and welcome to Staff Member interview of deviantART Staff Appreciation Week! So, here is interview with awesome ArtBIT! 1. How did you discover deviantART, and what made you stay?I've first discovered deviantART when I was searching for some Photoshop tutorials years ago.

Tell us the story behind your username and/or prior dA accounts.I've only used one dA account, this one.

DT 2012 Baguette meet at BreadlandsPlaceOur dt development team is 100% remote. We documented our first foray in cautiously meeting each other last summer in the blog DT 2011 Army Barracks Raccoon-Con, the event that took place in Marin Headlands near San Francisco. Or team is also fairly evenly distributed across a couple continents and several timezones, with many of the developers hailing from UK, France and other European countries. This year, those Europeans managed to coerce North America based developers to get their papers in order and tricked them into embarking on the long flight. Destination - beautiful village of Les Sauvages (which literally means “the savages”), France, countryside near Lyon and Beaujolais region. This event got named "B

Holiday Card Project 2015!The DeviantArt #HolidayCardProject is back for its 9th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.In the past few years, this project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards are then divvied up and distributed by DeviantArt members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for DeviantArt volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in
