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

With just over 900 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.:faq29:So what does it take to become a Senior?

Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.

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

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
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,

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. It didn
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

Update: Fair Exposure and Popular Browse Fair Exposure and miscategorizationOn January 24th, 2012, we released an hq journal regarding Popular results for Browse. In this journal, we described Fair Exposure -- deviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results. Fair Exposure's goal is to showcase the most popular deviations in a variety of styles, genres, and art forms, without bias towards a particular topic.Since the release of our Fair Exposure announcement, especially in the last handful of weeks, we've noticed a concerted, dedicated effort made by deviants, or groups of deviants, to specifically beat (or "game") the system. Deviations have been intentionally miscategorized in hopes of having them appear "higher" in Popular results. This has, rightfully so, resulted in complaints from deviants who submit to deviantART in a fair and honest manner.
