Dear Teen MeYou know what? Even as you, we'd both agree starting this off with a "Dear Timothy" is useless. We both know why I'm here to write this.Dear Teen Me by timmy64
You're gay. It'd probably help to sit you down and explain the mechanics of all of this to you; but, let's face it, you're gonna need a couple of years of denial to sort this out any way. Mum and Dad are okay with it, you know, and these days we're in a stable relationship. It won't be easy though.
I'd love to be able to sit here and say that the next ten years are going to be a walk in the park. I'd love to be able to tell you that it gets better, and that things will run smoothly. They won't. Things will get worse before they get better. Your first relationship, well, he's a drug addict these days. Oh, you will care for him, and I still do; but, you won't stay with him long. Fear will get the better of you, and you'll run. You'll keep running for about two years. You'll get another fling or two, and after a while the damage will start to pile up.
Forum Features #4 - April (Fun Features)Here we are again! The MN@ team is here to feature the works of dA's beloved forumersForum Features #4 - April (Fun Features) by disintegration
Once per month we'll select one active user in the forums and we'll feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind and awesome, we also decided to give an opportunity to everybody to get featured! Every month, we'll create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a different theme. This thread will be made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs from your gallery matching the theme and, at the end of the month, we'll select our favourite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article
The best thing is that the only requirement is that you're an active member of the forums!

Inside Community Operations, Part 1I've been asked by a few people recently in interviews or chats what my role at deviantART involves, which is always difficult to answer in a short sentence or two.Inside Community Operations, Part 1 by fourteenthstar
In the interest of providing a more in-depth and hopefully more valuable reference, I've decided to post a news article which should provide a deeper insight the community operations team in general, as well as contextualizing my roles and responsibilities.
When I started to write this, I thought I could do it in 1 journal, but clearly -- there's too much going on here and so I have broken it down into 2 areas - first up The Basics, and tomorrow - the more complex projects and areas which cross over with other departments. Feel free to ask questions in here but I may take some time to get back to you.
I oversee the following teams : CEA, MN@, Help Desk and Customer Service. I'll break down my involvement in these teams a bit more.

The CR Team acts as a window of information for the community on how to utilize deviantART in a way that will empower and enable themselves as respected and successful artists.
Our ultimate vision is a community of artists that come together unified and strengthened by sharing the belief that they hold the artistic power to create and shape their own success. In order to realize our vision, our mission must be to exceed the expectations of our community, whom we view as partners, and we will accomplish this by committing to our shared core values.
