1. Gallery Makeover Project



First, thank you for all of your feedback concerning Gallery Makeovers! That information is being sorted and organized and I'll be working on one gallery at a time going forward.  Recently, we announced the changes to the Journal Category tree and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  I have been collecting feedback from the announcement for future consideration when it comes to future gallery additions.  At this time, I will be monitoring the changes and should we need to add more categories, we can certainly do that.  It's easier to add than take away, as this project is certainly proving :

I'm currently organizing a plan of attack for the rest of the galleries, a schedule if you will.  Once that's been sorted out, I will certainly announce what is being worked on and how, so the community is informed :) Nothing will be a surprise, as you know, we've come to these plans together with feedback from you.  Simplification and ease of submission is the end goal and while it will take some time, I think we all believe it's well worth the effort. 



2. Volunteer Openings in Community Relations



If you're interested in learning more about being a volunteer on deviantART please read FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on DeviantArt? 

We are actively recruiting for many positions right now! To see current openings on the Community Relations volunteer team please go to this journal. To apply, please go to the application form here

If there isn't a spot open please consider helping out from within the community. Read How to be a guiding light and shining example by the awesome RockstarVanity :love:

Please note that there are a lot of inquiries that come in and only those being considered will be contacted.  Also, all applications are kept on file for one year.

Thank you :)

I can't wait to see the Fan Fiction gallery finally be overhauled. Then I'll finally be able to check off the last of my goals for my tenure as CV!

If I may, what kind of overhaul did you suggest? I find genre categorization fascinating. :3

No wonder I don't remember that. I didn't get really active on here until October or November last year. 

I am living proof that poetry subcat might be useful...

I just want to see the characters and settings subcat so I can stop tearing my hair out when I try to report miscats of those.
