Spotlight Deviant VI~myusernameistaken2
The purpose of these features are to expose work of highly underappreciated deviants.

How to Suggest a Daily DeviationSo I've come across multiple polls asking, "Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?" Sadly the most frequently chosen option was, "I don't know how to go about it." Not yes, not no: the uncertainty of the process.
I will make this as easy as possible.
1. Go here, and note one of the Community Volunteers in charge of the category of art you're suggesting. If you'd like you can also favorite this journal for reference.
The note should be as such:
:thumbxxxxxxx: (found to the right of the deviation, underneath the groups).
A reason why (is preferable but not necessary).
The deviant being suggested should not have had a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months (check this by going to the deviant's page and typing /dds after it) if they have none then you have no mat

Android! Mac! Windows! Oh my!Announcing the official release of dAmnMobile on Android and Mac!
These apps have taken months of effort and are absolutely great to use. The Android app runs on all recent phones and is even optimized for tablets.
The Mac version of dAmnMobile is a special version of the app rewritten to take full advantage of the platofrm, full screen support, multiple chats with tabs, Growl Notifications and more!
Also incoming is dA Messages for Mac!
I hope you enjoy these apps as they are released :iconlaplz:!
New Script? NEW SCRIPT!IT's a tiny one, admittedly, and I just made it in a few minutes of spare time I had lying around under the clutter on my desk, but it's a useful little bugger!
It's called /clearuser and it's a single command.
What does it do? It clears a user, of course!
It's a good middleground between ignoring a user and clearing a chat. It only clears messages from one user, so you get the targeted nature of /ignore, but it's not a permanent thing: like /clear, it only removes previous messages.
Why would you want this? Well, I find that often times, a perfectly good person will accidentally stretch #devart and give us a horizontal scrollbar, but I can't /clear because I'm still in the middle of a conversation and don't want to lose backlogs. I also hate /clearing.
That's where /clearuser comes in. You can clear all previous messages from a single user, thus protecting everything else in your chat history, without ignoring the user!
Cluedo Workshop! [Finished]EDIT: The workshop has finished. We managed to make a clear guide, as well as a shortened version for the chats!
I've noticed my writings have been a little confusing to newbies, so we'll be holding a Cluedo workshop in :#dAmnCluedo: on Thursday, 17th November at 9-10pm GMT+12. (What time is this for me?) I'd like to ask all Cluedo regulars to attend, as we'll be working on the following things:
A more concise (less TL;DR) guide for newbies!
Building a group FAQ to answer any and all questions about the game!
Pastebin guide for the game (a short version that we can just copy and paste when needed).Even if you're relatively new to the group/game, you're welcome to attend and have any of your queries addressed!
ALTUS: AMBIENT SOUNDSCAPEOkay, if you are anything into ambient music, and especially soundscape music (constructions of primitive harmony that conjure visual emotions of changing topography in the mind of the listener), then I would recommend the Elements series courtesy of Altus.
Each album is conceptual and based on the classical elements (earth, air, water, fire) common to a variety of ancient philosophical systems.
All music has been released under Creative Commons license.

Remembering VynnxIt seems like only yesterday he was offending and horrifying everyone with this monthly star signs, but yesterday marked the three year anniversary of his death. He was a good mate and if I had to describe him it would be like a partner in crime.
Always there to share a good laugh, poke fun at the butthurt and generally amuse everyone and anyone who spent five minutes or more reading his page.
He was 31 when he died, feels a bit surreal as I'm now at the same age, I feel fitter, healthier and happier than I have ever done in the past, but it was still brought home to me, you never know what life may through at you (found out last week a mate from school died too, killed on the very first leg of a round the world trip he was doing with his wife).
However the point of this journal is not meant to be angst ridden, what ifs don't bother me, they never have, because it's just speculation and wasted time when wondering what might be if things were different. However I'm getting off the point
Free and unappreciated.Today I got told that my apps should be free as deviantART is free. After hearing this dozens if not hundreds of times since I first started creating iOS apps for deviantART in my free time, I've finally gotten to the stage in my mind where I feel that I need to address this problem.
My deviantART apps all originate from my own personal need for them. dAmnMobile, I wanted to chat on dAmn via my iPhone then my iPad when I eventually got one. dA Messages, I wanted to check my messages in a better user interface than the mobile site provided at that stage. dA Uploader, I wanted to upload to my Sta.sh quickly with a simple UI. The side effect of me wanting these personally is that you received them as well.
The concept in people's mind that third party apps should be free as the website is needs to be corrected. My personal apps are eit
DA Witch Hunts, Righteous Indignation. Fuck You.STFU
Some people on here spend more time 'hunting', tracking and analysing supposed art-thiefs than producing actual art or contributing.
I have seen a 13 year old girl bombarded with multiple insults / threats. In a group admin discussion, the deviants were saying the young girl should be 'gassed' - and that 'Hitler would have been too kind for her'. She was tormented into quitting the site by a large group of women. If you think that's kool, then fuck you.
I have seen feuds tear across social platforms and various sites because of 'copying' or alleged copying, causing insurmountable aggrevation and pulling others into the crossfire.
I have seen Facebook art sites attacked my the 'righteous indignation' brigade, attacking genuine art appreciators like evangelical lunatics.
I get messages daily about this stuff. Many of the messages do not even come from the artists themselves, but 'concerned parties'. Please, I DO NOT CARE. With the exception of the famous Chad Love Lieberman case, mo
Thoughts.Well, for starts, I'm considering making a new account for fully-finished paintings, serious concepts, etcetera.
The reason is simply this: I want to finally have order.
My submissions have been at most mediocre in terms of finishing in the past many months, not to mention this account is 3 years old and all content is horribly mashed together into an unsorted gallery.
I've tried to sort my gallery many times, but with 1,337 deviations with GIANT technical, year and thematic differences? Nope. Gave up after 3 pages.
Not to mention deviantart's system is flawed to the core.
In the last poll, this idea was pretty much voted out by a lot of you...
I think this new, fresh start would be an amazing thing for me, because fresh starts are MY way of re-starting my system.
So, we're coming to the second problem...
I'm entering another state of depression, despite having an A+ social life and a lot of positive happenings around me.
I feel like my art has take
Skin of the What?After some discussion we have decided to bring back Skin of the
QuarterSeason. This is a reincarnation of our old Skin of the Month contests, just a bit more spread out.
The plan so far is to have a one month nomination period after each quarter of the year. We will only be accepting nominations of skins that were submitted to DeviantArt within that quarter of the year. We're hoping this will encourage the creation of new skins. Because of a limitation to the number of items we can place on a single pole, we the moderators reserve the right to whittle down the competition before voting.
After nominations are closed we will have one week of voting. There may even be a prize for the winner.
As of this blog the rules are as follows:
A Skin of the
QuarterSeason must be released during the time period of the poll.
There is a technical limit of 10 suggestions per poll. Suggestions exceeding this limit may be decided upon by the moderators.
You cannot sugge

^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
