Community Operations

What is Community Operations?

DeviantART's Community Operations Department is dedicated to providing a high standard of community development, encouraging innovative and creative opportunities within the community.

Areas which we are responsible for include:
:bulletblue: Providing community support and assistance via the Help Desk.

:bulletblue: Providing customer service for prints and merchandise customers.

:bulletblue: Developing and enforcing policies, including copyright issues, inappropriate content and other violations.

:bulletblue: Providing opportunities for interactive events and encouraging collective action within our community via the chat network and forums.

Our department drives an environment where deviants can come together and be empowered within, and by, the community. We believe that community development is not a department -- it's an approach which helps people to recognise and develop their ability to reach their potential. By providing this organised, motivated, accountable and effective department, we are leading the way for deviants to continue participating in a way which they feel listened to, valued and inspired.

Deviousness Award


Congratulations to

What is this Awesome Achievement?

The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.

Endorell-Taelos is very well known within the community for her selfless giving and gracious community spirit. Since joining DeviantART over seven years ago, Alicia has continued to make a positive impact on many deviants. Her helpful and thoughtful approach was one of her finest attributes when serving as a Community Volunteer, and this has continued throughout the many contests which Alicia provides on a regular basis. As we approach our Birthday celebrations, we can't think of a better way to kick-start the party than by awarding the Deviousness Award for August 2014 to a deviant who is a role model to us all. Congratulations!

Congratulations to Endorell-Taelos

Damn i made a mistake. Btw thanks for the warning. I promise i will silently reporting underage deviant next time
hans-sachs Featured By Owner 2 days ago
well, there is one possible solution - the information can still be found in the google cache. if you link to the cache and staff reads your report soon (which is normaly the case with coppa reports), the underage person will get banned nonetheless.

:iconbreakingthecircle: I would really like to get this group noticed. I have noticed more and more things on DA related to issues presented in this group. I believe this group could become a valuable tool for this site's members.
