community ideas for deviantART

Provided by the community for consideration by deviantART; Please comment on this collection or note me if you'd like a particular idea to be added to this collection for review!!


when my mind
is unmapped.

continuos plans and goals

people and noise

a well designed team
balances imbalances

but my mapped mind
is peace to me

DeviantArt the beneficiary
of a life long collaboration

of mind mappers

are you under it?
or, is it under you.

it is coming.

surrender your beliefs
open your mind

is the idea
sadness when my mind is unmapped
some things are status and some things are journals

but feelings and ramblings are art
So, how's the weekend going? Anyone drawing?
Nice ;)

Enjoying reading the responses to the launch article of our previous version, v7.…
Seems like the Watch Feed has replaced the term "Activity Feed" --

This term is a bit clearer. The DeviantArt Message Center contains original Watch and is commonly referred to as the Watch List.

Since the Watch Feed is derived from the people that you +Watch, it is a bit clearer now that as a result of a +Watch, you have access to a Watch List and a Watch Feed.

The Watch Feed mirrors the Watch environment you will have access to from your still unreleased DeviantArt Mobile App. This is the primary reason we built and released a Watch Feed.

I hope this helps clear that up. Marketing will be informing you of this change more formally soon.

I have the privilege of making the ultimate day-to-day decisions on deviantART in my acting position as Chief Executive Officer. I Co-Founded deviantART in April of 2000 with jark along with a founding team of individuals including matteo most of whom joined around launch in August. Honorary founding team members include: mccann, chris and spot.


I've had a passion for building online communities since my addiction to game BBS's (doom, doom 2, heretic, hexen, etc.) when I was 12. I co-sysop'd the Netherworld BBS in Northern Virginia at that time (till I was 15) and fell in love with the possibilities; especially as they applied to a global community. deviantART mirrors many aspects of BBS's and as time progresses you will find even closer comparisons to the quality of community MajorBBS and other platforms were able to support. Of course, most of you have no idea what I'm talking about when I say BBS's. Ugh.

I've now spent more than half my life building online communities. Seeking to deliver a mainstream application that captures the depth and passion that I felt for BBS's in my youth youth, rather than my now youth. :D

I'm very proud of the success of deviantART. Especially the fact that we took the road less traveled and arrived a little later, but on our own pure and untainted terms. We're doing it our way.

And that ladies and gentlemen ... feels like a milli-millillion dollars.


Before you read about the future, read about the past. And I think with a past like that and a team like this, it is a bright future indeed.

It is our intention to create the most powerful outlet in the world for known and unknown artists alike.

Most importantly we intend to take our time to do it right. For the first time in history there is connection and communication between artists and fans on a massive scale. deviantART represents a breakthrough for the promotion and exposure of otherwise stranded artists in all corners of the globe. Our job is to make sense of the possibility, and craft it in a responsible manner.

And that's what I'm here to do along with the strong team we've assembled here at deviantART; until the job is done.

(If you have something real and tangible to propose that may help deviantART in one way or another; Feel free to send me a note. I read every note even if I don't respond. Forgive me on the responses, there are thousands of notes!)

How are you handling the majority community dislike of the changes pushed through?

Just passing by to say that it would be cool to make custom t-shirts... I know that a lot of people would be interested. Maybe to sold the t-shirts once they reach a certain orders quantity would make them less expensive?

A global poll at the bottom of the homepage would be a good idea, the admins will easily see how many people are interested!
