Starting the final spurt

Wed Oct 24, 2012, 11:10 AM

Suggest the best of the best!


Time flies. My term as your Community Volunteer for Photography/Abstract & Surreal is going to end on November 16. That is why I'd like to call on you to send me your DD suggestions now 'cause I have not more than 12 slots open for DD features anymore.

What I want to see? The best of the best. You may also suggest your own work if you think that it's outstanding and deserves much more recognition.



Have you ever thought about volunteering?


I'm also very anxious that whoever will take my place after November 16 will continue featuring awesome, unsual, outstanding and controversial artwork to show the community the whole spectrum of abstract and surreal photography.

Do you want to give back to the community? Do you want to work in an awesome team of art enthusiasts promoting artwork and educating the community through projects like projecteducate or ArtHistoryProject?



Not particularly interested in looking after abstract and surreal photography? Check out the official communityrelations blog and see which other positions are currently open:

Stop bullying!


Do you disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature? Do you think the artists "doesn't deserve it"? Feel free to communicate your opinion on the artwork, but please stop flaming the artist!

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories.  While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other".  The reason for this change is simple.  The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree.  We're also working on u

Hey, Derya! :wave: :hug:

Die "Amtszeit" ist halt auf ein Jahr begrenzt, und nur wenige werden eingeladen länger zu machen (was wiederum auch mit zusätzlichen Aufgaben verbunden ist, für die ich einfach keine Zeit habe). Es war auf jeden Fall eine tolle Erfahrung, und vielleicht kann ich das in der Zukunft ja noch einmal wiederholen. Für den Moment freue ich mich ehrlich gesagt auch darauf, dass es erst einmal ein bisschen ruhiger werden wird. :)

Thank you very much, Kay! :)

It's easy to suggest a DD, there are several CVs looking after certain categories. Pick a deviation that you would like to suggest, copy the thumbnail into a note and send it to the CV who is looking after that category.

FAQ #18: Who selects the Daily Deviation and how is it chosen?

The term for every CV is one year only, unless they get an invitation to become a "mentor".

Off Topic: Ich habe gerade zufällig gesehen, dass Du gerne ein größeres "Description"-Fenster auf der "Submit-Page" hättest. Du musst eigentlich nur auf das kleine Dreieck in der unteren rechten Ecke klicken und gedrückt halten, dann kannst Du das Fenster so groß ziehen wie Du möchtest (funktioniert auch mit Notes). ;)

I vote for a re-election. Your selections are always worth watching, out of the box.

I'm not good at abstract photography, but I really like it. It will be a shame if you'll not be a CV anymore.


Greetings, my friend.

Only one year? For me it is like you have always been there as a CV (oh wait, my account is only a year old... )

Thank you for doing such an outstanding job Florian. While it is sad to see you go as CV I am sure there are positive sides to it as well :manhug: :heart:
