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

I report works every now and then (mostly for needing a mature tag), and in the past I've always been notified of the decision the dA staff has made. However, for at least the last six months, I haven't been notified.

Is this a change to the reporting system? Is there a glitch and the dA staff isn't getting my reports? Is there a glitch and I'm not getting notified of the decisions?

I would like to know what is going on, especially since I've flagged two stories for porn in the last six months and I've yet to hear a word about those and if they were taken down.

"Our new logo is symbolic of everything we believe."

Not surprising. It doesn't look like it means anything, except making me think I need to make a bank deposit.

Anyway, what happened with Senior announcement? It hasn't been made a new one since 30th of September.

I want to ask why kozispoon blocked me. She has left some positive comments and I can't answer... I would understand if we were bickering about something, but here I do not really get it.
milovanf Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Are you sure she block you? Maybe she hide your conversation you had with her. 
UsagiToxic Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Nope, you can still see her comments here, for example:

Neither do I have her blocked.

So I am kinda in loss...

Really funny. Why she did that I have no idea.
