What is a Daily Deviation?

The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.

A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.

The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.

FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?



How To Suggest a Daily Deviation:

:pointr:-Find a deviation on deviantART that you would like to see featured.

:pointr:-Take notice of the deviations category. Example: Traditional, Digital etc

:pointr:-Find the appropriate deviantART Gallery Moderator that Moderates the category that the deviation is in.
Links are provided in this Blog that show every Moderator and their Respective Sections.

:pointr:-Send a note to the Gallery Moderator. Title: "Daily Deviation Suggestion" or something to that effect

:pointr:-Make sure you paste the link and/or thumbnail of the deviation you are suggesting in the note (preferably a thumbnail)
The "thumb" code is on the right side of each image description. Copy the thumb code, it will show a thumbnail of the image when pasted in the note.

:pointr:-Leave a short description of why you think the piece should become a DD if you wish.

:pointr:-Send note


Some things you should know

Anyone can suggest a daily deviation. Suggesting someones work for a DD could give that artist the opportunity to reach a much larger audience and gain more exposure. It only takes a few minutes, and it will really make someones day. Try to suggest one as often as possible!

Remember that as a general rule recipients must wait at least 6 months from receiving their last DD before they are eligible for a new one. So if a person has received a DD in the last 6 months, wait a while before suggesting another of their works.

Certain Gallery Moderators and Staff may have specific details on how to suggest Daily Deviations to them. I suggest that you scan their front page for any specific information before suggesting one.

Moderators do receive a lot of suggestions, so not every piece that you suggest may become a DD.
Also keep in mind that due to the sheer volume of notes that Gallery Moderators receive, you may or may not receive a reply.
So be remain both persistent and patient, and your diligence will pay off!
Remember that you are doing this as an act of kindness.

Are there other members of the team except Tiganusi & StudioFove who I can send a photography suggestion? They seem to be a bit busy right now because they have not read the notes for about two weeks now and I'm afraid their inboxes could explode if I send them to much notes. :D

There's this row of deviations that show up at the bottom of the home page. Most of the time, I suggest them for deviations. They seem really good.

30-40 DDs suggested, 7 got featured :)
Many notes I've sent are still unread. For the others, I rarely got a reply (the current fractal GM always replies though :love: ).
I'm more than glad that I could make those 7 deviants happy and provided them the exposure they deserved, but I confess I would have appreciated a little reply (even a copypaste one) for my notes... Politeness, nothing more I ask for :blushes: .

I hear what your saying, I really do. But I can't imagine how many notes they get a day. They must be very busy and responding to each and every message would most likely take up a lot if not most of their time. I simply run a couple of groups here on deviantART and my message center is an absolute train-wreck, and I process it daily. Slightly different circumstances, but you get the point. While it would be nice to receive a response to either confirm or decline, I don't blame them at all if they don't.

So I personally take no offense if I do not receive a reply to suggesting a DD. I simply suggest and move on.

yup, I know, I understand and I agree with you :nod: I didn't give up suggesting, though I do that less often than before.
I just personally think that the suggester gets more "demotivated" by the "I'm ignored" or "It seems like spending my time providing suggestion just annoys the GM" feeling rather than the "my suggestion wasn't featured" feeling. It's a negative attitude I've seen very often on DD related polls, journals etc... and I admit I felt a little demoralized because of this as well :ashamed:
However, very nice article :hug: this will help a lot all those people that didn't know they can contribute supporting fellow artists :)

My only wish was for them to have an abstract section under traditional. They break down the photography into several categories but there are also several categories that should be under traditional as well

I believe that just like llama badges, etc, a SUBMISSIONS WIDGET would allow me to easily suggest DDs.
Of course your submissions would rise over 600% according
to the chained monkey's calculations, but also the DD's would broaden and
become more varied--like a legal Flash MUSIC VID every 8 months or so.

I do think that some kind of button interface would be useful. But sending a note to a GM with a link and description is not a lot of work, and it can do so much for the artist in regards to exposure.
It doesn't hurt to take a few moments out of one's day to help someone ;)

In the past as each version of DA changed I found it hard to find gallery mods then forgot about it really-

If there was a button on each deviation, I would take the time to critique and suggest certain deviations.
One should have to write a short essay about what the dev means to the suggestor and that would dissuade
the impulsive energy that could foul up the submission machine with easy button pushing. and send the text messengers to hades

ahhhaaaha

I haven't suggested anything though since the SuggestDD script is all broken. I miss that thing. :C

I I really dig that SuggestDD Script, wicked bummer that it's not working now.
And admittedly I had trailed off of suggesting DD's for awhile afterward. But now that the withdrawals are gone, it's really a very quick fun process to suggest them the manual way. It makes it more of a little event, like you are planning a surprise for someone rather than just a click of a button.

The SuggestDD script doesn't work anymore. So for a little while I didn't suggest DD's, probably because the script was so quick and easy and the old way seemed like too much work or something. But then as time passed I started suggesting them again, and realized that it was not the long drawn out process that I was making it out to be in my head. It is actually quite fun and not time consuming at all.
So I was implying that I was having withdrawals from the SuggestDD script ;)
