There appears to be a new rumour flying around in various journals and comments that deviantART will be deleting accounts.  The information seems to be spreading using messaging similar to what is here:

On 21 of may, deviantart will be deleting all accounts. Not plz accounts. accounts ,  But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on your deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that your not fake.

Thank you for listening

-deviantart staff 

First, allow me to reiterate that there is no truth to this.  DeviantART would never convey information this way and official information is always posted through hq

If you are being spammed with false information, feel free to hide and block the user and report them to the Help Desk.

So what will happen on May 21st? Happy you asked!

May 21st is National Memo Day and National Waiter and Waitresses Day.  So on May 21st we should all write a memo to ourselves to avoid internet rumour and then we should celebrate our success by going out to lunch and tipping our wait-staff well 

Have a great day! :heart:

Look at all these rumours, surrounding me everyday..

Thank god that this is fake..
Cause I don't wanna lose my account ;~; I love this site so much.. <3

And to be honest, at first I thought it was true for a minute cause someone that I'm watching posted a entry with the exact same info about this deleting account thing and I almost had a heart attack too.

But after reading this entry I'm like: "Phew, thank god"

FAQ #113: Can I delete my deviantART account? says:

Accounts cannot be deleted! We don't ever want you to leave, we'd miss you too much, sniff.

(The 'sniff' is a nice touch.)

FAQ 113 is very comforting... :nod:

<sarcasm>

If you don't pass this message on to 200 people by next thursday, deviantART will delete your account no matter how active you are! This is not a rumour! If you like you account! Pass this message on!

</sarcasm>

Because chain messages are the most efficient way for the staff to talk to everyone of course...
