I'm ^alicexz now! + DD Guidelines

Wed Sep 28, 2011, 5:17 PM
Hi everyone! As of today I've been made one of the new Community Volunteers by Moonbeam13 and I'll be looking after the Digital Art gallery, along with MalKnox! Woo! Very exciting and I am definitely going to have a great time this year. My job will be to do some general moderating around the community; organizing deviations and miscategorizations, posting news and features and offering general support! Hopefully I can even get some contests going in the future! I'll be painting and posting art and carrying on in all my usual deviant things, so that won't change - I'll just be busier! :la:

Oh, and of course I can also now feature Daily Deviations, so suggest away! I've typed up some rules which I'll be putting in my profile shortly, but here's a copy for this journal, please read it though!

Suggesting a Daily Deviation – Guidelines

  • Note your DD suggestion(s) to me, alicexz, using the :thumbxxxxxxxx: thumbnail format. Use of the thumbnail code is REQUIRED - there is a good chance I will miss your suggestion if you don't send me a thumbnail. Instructions on how to use thumb codes here:…
  • Do make sure the art you suggest is from one of the following Digital Art categories:
    • Digital Art > Paintings & Airbrushing
      Digital Art > Drawings
      Digital Art > Miscellaneous
      Digital Art > Mixed Media
  • A deviant can't receive a DD if they've already gotten one in the past 3 months 6 MONTHS, new rule - like they really, actually can't, I can't set the feature, the DD system will not allow it. Thus, it would save all of us a lot of time if you go to [artist] and look at the date of their last DD before you suggest a piece!
  • Adding a description as to why you think the deviation/artist should be featured is much appreciated, but not necessary. I will write a caption for every DD I feature.
  • I always look at the entire gallery of any artist suggested to me. Thus, please remember I may choose to feature a different work (by the same artist) than the one you suggest. You will still be listed as the suggester though!
  • I am open to self-suggestions, but please suggest yourself at your own risk - don't get offended if I decide not to feature your deviation. Remember, as aunjuli famously said: "...try and suggest artwork to me that you would share with 10 million people. I know it sounds obvious... but. Well, think about it."
  • It's always wonderful to be able to feature a new or underappreciated artist with no previous DDs, but that does NOT at all mean I won't feature "popular" artists. It is an honor for me to showcase excellent work, no matter who the artist or how much attention they do or do not already have.
  • I'm sorry, but due to the volume of notes I receive I cannot reply to everyone, and please remember it may take awhile for your suggestion to be featured even if I do accept it, since DDs can be scheduled weeks in advance. There is also a chance that I might forget to add you as a suggestor - this is because I get so many notes that there are bound to be duplicates, and multiple DD suggestors have to be added by me manually (it's a clunky system.) If you see a DD that you'd like credit for also suggesting, just let me know.
  • It is also simply not possible for me to feature everyone's suggestions, despite how good they may be; so please be patient and don't get discouraged if your suggestion is not accepted right away. I do look at and appreciate each and every one of them!
FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?

Thank you everyone! This is a big honor and I look forward to serving dA this year!
