#devart#devart is deviantART's Official chatroom, it is advertised as such on the Chat homepage, and we encourage people to join and 'meet fellow deviants'.
A concern we've encountered is that #devart is not always very welcoming. Over time the enforcement of some of the room's rules has become very lax, and the room can at times be intimidating for new members. Recently we have been exploring ways to improve on the culture of #devart and make the experience more welcoming and enjoyable for everyone. I appreciate there have been some confusing messages and that's why I'm posting this to explain the direction going forward and get the community support we need to drive positive change.
First and foremost, it's important to note that these aren't exactly 'changes'. These are policies and rules that have always been in place, but for one reason or another, haven't been upheld as they probably should have been. As

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the broken relationships between men and their razors. Donning their moustaches, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostate cancer.
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Czech Republic. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to e

Once upon a time, I was a volunteer, and speaking from experience, it can be a both blessing and a curse.
I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.

This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
