1. New Volunteers


After an exhaustive review of all the applications for new volunteers, I have the pleasure to announce the following new additions to the team! They have been specifically selected to represent areas we believe have been greatly neglected:

:bulletpink: You asked for it and we listened! It has been widely suggested that Journals be eligible to be featured as Daily Deviations. So starting today, the talented StephenieMeyer will be eagerly awaiting your suggestions!

:bulletpink: OscartheGrouch will be taking care of Scraps and Storage to uncover those hidden gems that are truly.. hidden.

:bulletpink: kimkardashian will be watching over the brand new Selfies category! (read below for more about new categories)

:bulletpink: professorXavier will be minding the new ThoughtART gallery



2. New categories


We are constantly reviewing requests for new additions and changes to the category tree, to reflect the demands of the latest artistic currents. As a result of the last review, the following categories and sub-categories will soon be added:


Photography > People & Portraits > Selfies


Selfie by AncillaTilia Selfie by MeganStacey Selfie - Pin-up by janlykke 

Photography > People & Portraits > Photobombing


More Photo Bombing by CastleOblivin Photo Bombed by NovemberCosplay :thumb361582525:

Photography > Still Life > Starbucks Cups


Starbucks by PeculiarThing the starbucks wintercup by nothinimportant91 Starbucks by Cruxiaer

Photography > Darkroom > Digital > Instagram filters


Autumn instagram by clarasaenz Park - Instagram by iPhone4Photography Instagram - A hard life by cheenot

Literature > Prose > Facebook Statuses


DressI bought a new dress, and I look fabulous in it! Of course I look fabulous with anything, lol! ShampooI wonder what would happen if I decide to use conditioner BEFORE shampoo today... mmm I'll keep you posted... if I return.   Shower thoughtsAll the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.
Also, I need to buy some milk.


Digital Art > Drawings > Paintings > Made with a mouse


Sonic by Platinus HOW 2 DRAW PAERLA by LazyTurtle IM SARAH JESSICA PARKER!!! by jereweb0203


We also will be adding some new Journal sub-categories: 
Personal > Rants
Deviant Events > SOPA signal boosts
Deviant Events > OMG there is a hacker loose again
 


3. Changes to the Daily Deviation selection process


:bulletpink: You will now be able to send your suggestions via your thoughts! Just think of the appropriate volunteer (according to this list) while looking at the deviation you want to suggest. 


:bulletpink: From now on, Daily Deviation suggestions will be received on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 8:00am to 1:00pm and from 2:00pm to 5:30pm PST :note: Please note exceptions: Not applicable the first Monday of each month, in which case it will switch to Tuesdays. Also affecting the third Wednesday of each month which would switch to Thursday, except in the event of a Full Moon. Furthermore, if it is a leap year, it would be Saturdays, not Fridays, but only for January and February.

* Schedule is subject to change.



4. 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?

To see current openings on the Community Relations volunteer team please go to this journal

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:

:new: Please note that the requirements for Community Volunteers have been reviewed and it has been decided that beyond the attributes of community spirit and the ability to work with a team, new applicants will need to demonstrate "Musical Attitude".  New CV candidates can now send their audition videos singing why they should be chosen to the following address: cr_the_musical@volunteers.deviantart.com


Please note that due to the volume of applications, only those being considered will be contacted. Your understanding is appreciated :)

The Community Relations department exists to encourage, facilitate and develop the relationship with our deviantART community. Our goal is to nurture our community by encouraging, stimulating artists to create, collaborate, and participate in a friendly, safe, and supportive artistic environment. Watch communityrelations for up to date news and to learn how you can get involved in projects and events!


Happy April Fools Day :heart:

This is actually very interesting for me to read. It's so intriguing for everyone to read. Maybe add a journal skin to pimp it up more.

No, I am stating that I, personally, find these "sub categories" completely stupid.  They are not even GOOD categories, they are categories for the lame and POPULAR crap, that you see "on the internet".  I am sorry, but no.  I  can not support this.
