How can I help?
At regular intervals, new faces appear in the Community Relations team as open positions for Community Volunteers are filled. All these new additions to the team can spark interest in volunteering for dA and can inspire people to ask "What can I do to support my favourite gallery?". You don't have to be a Community Volunteers or have a fancy symbol next to your name to promote and support artists within your favourite gallery. The suggestions listed below are for everyone, and in case you want something a little more useful than just my ideas I've included links to FAQ entries with more information.
To avoid repeating myself, I'd like to point you in the direction of an article called How to promote other people's work on dA that I wrote back in De
The solution begins with youAfter thinking day alter day about my stay here, in DeviantArt, Ive realized there are some general problems affecting not only me, but a great part of the community. Im not talking about technical problems, Im talking about social problems. Behaviours that make us feel uncomfortable with other fellow-deviants, and make them feel uncomfortable with us. Situations created by us, that shall be solved by us. No one of us can change others mind, but we can improve our community individually, being better deviants, and also, better people.The solution begins with you by Atramina
Im not here to tell you HOW to be a good deviant, neither a good person. Cause I cannot. Im not a psychologist or guru and wont pretend to act as one. Im here to share conclusions Ive obtained from my personal experiences, and other deviants. Youre free to consider them valuable or useless. The only thing I can guarantee is theyre based on real facts.
Here you have some
An examination of motivation in communication Introductory BitAn examination of motivation in communication by RockstarVanity
Before I get started, I'd like to make it clear that this article is made up of my own thoughts, my own opinions. I hope that some of you read this and it sparks a little internal dialogue, but I'm not expecting that on any great level. It may spark a little external dialogue too, and that's fine. You don't have to agree with me and I would never expect everyone to agree with everything (or anything) I say. If you get a kick out of clicking the Reject button and displaying your negative feelings anonymously rather than expressing them openly, go ahead, knock yourself out. This is an Editorial. It's a collection of thoughts on a concept, a gathering of my own ideas and an act of sharing those ideas with others. There is no right and wrong. But there is motive and there is intent, and that's the perfect place to start...

deviantART's Community Relations Team provides a unique collective effort that seeks to create and sustain collaborative relationships among deviants and to develop innovative opportunities within the global art industry. These relationships are meant to provide and encourage opportunities to foster creative genius. The CR Team acts as a window of information for the community on how to utilize deviantART in a way that will empower and enable themselves as respected and successful artists.
Our ultimate vision is a community of artists that come together unified and strengthened by sharing the belief that they hold the artistic power to create and shape their own success. In order to realize our vision, our mission must be to exceed the expectations of our community, whom we view as partners, and we will accomplish this by committing to our shared core values. Our core values are listed in :faq84:

My Coldest Time of JoyThe time I dreamMy Coldest Time of Joy by Soyaku
a time I scream
It's when I muse my life
when I vent my strife
I hold your hand, let it shine
As you eclipse yours in mine.
Let us enter this glorious winter.
Let a wondrous chill shiver up your spine,
If not yours, then it'll gladly have mine.
It's my place
full of peaceful white lace.
Where I dare to create, to trace
the life I know back to the race
outside of my peaceful lair,
the fiery sun and scorching hot air
burn the hopes, the aspirations of me.
I'm inviting you, we'll have some glee
under the frosty illusion, a snow covered tree
You'll be my inspiration as my soul flies free
Come my friend of the ages
for the melting dream is falling to rages
of heat, of fire, of a burning desire
that others have for a sun shining higher
Though I know, that my secret's never a liar
It will be back soon, but surely, I tire
of the blazing phases, the fiery rages.
I wish for it to continue, though
My secret time never stays in low
of my lasting desire for death to the heating foe
Entry to Secret Garden ContestEntry to Secret Garden Contest by CrAZy-OvER-AnImE
It is the night that is dark,
While whisked together, a mass of spilled stars
Across glazed eyes, depth endures many of moons faces.
The careful, thin air eclipses through black worldly places.
Sun that had gone is not destroying its mark
My eyes desperately search to both skys meet,
To rapidly find more star fleets
When breathing forever
My neck stays holding up, looking up
Splits of colors in the night sky
Revisions into the fading black
Shades of navy and some that are orange begin to stack
The shear sun crosses my eyes
Towards the middle and to the end
Forever I wait.
A nightmare I spend
When i opened my eyes i discovered dA, my world changed and finally i began to create.
I was alive...
You'll find out me here, and there, disapearing, re-apearing...
Who am I? Do I ever know it myself?
Intangible, dreaming, melancholical...
