Our Group has had the very distinct pleasure and opportunity to be interviewed by techgnotic. techgnotic as many of you may know has brought us some of the most incredibly interesting and thought provoking discussions here on deviantART. From informative topics such as Fan Art Law to the epically random Dessert of your Dreams, to the groundbreaking medium crossing genre bending collaboration projects such as the ODYSSEYPROJECTtechgnotic pushes the envelope and never plays it safe. And his work speaks for itself.
We are honored that he has taken some time to sit down and talk with us about groups, and I look forward to where he takes future Group interviews from here.
Be sure to check out the interview and let us know what you think:
The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.
-Find a deviation on deviantART that you would like to see featured.
-Take notice of the deviations category. Example: Traditional, Digital etc
-Find the appropriate deviantART Gallery Moderator that Moderates the category that the deviation is in. Links are provided in this Blog that show every Moderator and their Respective Sections.
-Send a note to the Gallery Moderator. Title: "Daily Deviation Suggestion" or something to that effect
-Make sure you paste the link and/or thumbnail of the deviation you are suggesting in the note (preferably a thumbnail) The "thumb" code is on the right side of each image description. Copy the thumb code, it will show a thumbnail of the image when pasted in the note.
-Leave a short description of why you think the piece should become a DD if you wish.
Some things you should know
Anyone can suggest a daily deviation. Suggesting someones work for a DD could give that artist the opportunity to reach a much larger audience and gain more exposure. It only takes a few minutes, and it will really make someones day. Try to suggest one as often as possible!
Remember that as a general rule recipients must wait at least 6 months from receiving their last DD before they are eligible for a new one. So if a person has received a DD in the last 6 months, wait a while before suggesting another of their works.
Certain Gallery Moderators and Staff may have specific details on how to suggest Daily Deviations to them. I suggest that you scan their front page for any specific information before suggesting one.
Moderators do receive a lot of suggestions, so not every piece that you suggest may become a DD. Also keep in mind that due to the sheer volume of notes that Gallery Moderators receive, you may or may not receive a reply. So be remain both persistent and patient, and your diligence will pay off! Remember that you are doing this as an act of kindness.
