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.

Countdown to the next Deviousness Award!

Monday, August 31st @ 9:00pm

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.

The website called ( ) has been stealing artworks from deviantART and selling them off for profit!
Here're some of my images which they've stolen from my gallery and selling them off:…………

You've better check for your art, because there's a high chance it's already being sold there for the thieves' profit! Or you may sign this petition to shut down:…

Either way, DON'T LET THE THIEVES WIN~!! DeviantART's celebrating it's 15th birthday, so are you going to let a website full of thieves ruin its image OR WILL YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?

I'd like to know, what happens after I report an account on Deviantart?

That would depend on the reason for your report- actions can range anywhere from no action at all all the way to the termination of the account being reported.

This site is where I spend about 80% of my time online. I really like it. I love it. I have originally been a member since 2011. I made a new account in 2013 and it's going great. I really enjoy my time here. I have one wish though. I want to help people. I like advertising people's art, featuring random deviants, giving out random PMs, points, favs, watches and llamas. I want to make a difference in this community. I want to make people feel happy. I want everyone to love their art and to grow and improve. I want new people to be impressed when they see this site and want to join. I want to get rid of all bullies, trolls and art thieves. I'm not doing this for the fame and popularity. I'm doing it because I care about my favourite website, :deviantart: I really want to make a difference. I would like to become a CV. I have applied, and I have heard nothing yet. But until then, I will continue being kind, and helping people, and making a difference. Thanks for being an awesome website that gave me my happiest memories. Thank you for helping me to grow not just as an artist, but as a person. Keep being awesome, DA, you will always be my favourite website. I will be sure to recommend you to my friends!

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.

They don't have a notify option anymore, they took it away due to harassment issues.
