Epic Logo, Epic ChallengeAllow me to introduce myself. My name is Ryan Ford, and I am the Creative Director here at deviantART. In my position, I manage a global team of extremely talented designers, and collectively we are responsible for designing most everything that represents deviantART in any way, shape, or form.

CEA UPDATE 20082409: Clarifying Mature ContentClarifying Mature Content Guidelines; Nudity and Erotic WorkCEA UPDATE 20082409: Clarifying Mature Content by realitysquared
Over the years we have been functioning with a set of Mature Content guidelines which have been extremely general and open to a great amount of interpretation. With recent reporting behaviors demonstrated by members of the community I believe it is time that we refined the general set of guidelines by publishing the more specific set of circumstances which are available to the staff members who review the reports. By making these more specific guidelines available we hope that the community in general will better understand what requires a Mature Content tag and which will also provide more consistent voluntary tagging of works and more accurate reporting of works which should be tagged but were not at the time of submission.

Seniority Announcements - September 2008This article marks the first of what will be regular announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy heights of Senior members in our community. With just over 800 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.Seniority Announcements - September 2008 by fourteenthstar
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. 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.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a

The idea for deviant's Appreciation Day came originally from $Tachy-on, who started a forum thread back in April 2007, raising a very valid point without you, without your art, your community spirit, your journal postings, forum threads, opinions and news articles deviantART would not be deviantART.

January - DanLuVisiArt
One of the most fascinating things one can do on this site is watch the journey of an artist as they progress and refine their craft through nothing more than sheer hard work and perseverance. DanLuVisiArt began here almost 6 years ago now, and is just such an artist. Never one for the easy route or the shortcut, he has pushed himself non stop and improves constantly, and never stops and thinks he's as good as he needs to be. For him there is no stopping point, there is just growth and learning. In addition to his dedication to his craft, he is also a funny guy and completely approachable, off
