PE: Badges of DeviantARTBadges of deviantART, why are they given? What is their purpose in deviantART?Most of us know these badges since we signed up in deviantart.How did deviantART come up with the idea to create badges? Any background stories?"Badges started out as merit badges for deviantART staff. They were only available to staff for special accomplishments like merit badges for the boy scouts. We started making them available to members by way of special events like our 10th birthday bash and hidden pageviews. They gained a lot of popularity about 3 years ago with the introduction of the llama badge system for our annual April fools prank. The rest is history, you guys can't seem to get enough of them. "- $Ikue"The first badge was an april fools joke, the llama badge, free to give and they would evolve the more you received. They were so well received, we followed it up with real badges, the next

Multi-Submit and Scheduled SubmitTwo heavily requested tools to make submitting art to deviantART even easier than before have just been launched to Beta Testers!Multi-SubmitMulti-submit is a tabbed interface built into the Submit page which allows you to upload and submit multiple deviations at once.There are several ways to upload multiple files:Drag and drop several files onto the Submit page at once. Select several files from your Sta.sh by opening the "Select file from Sta.sh" modal and dragging to select, or by using control+click (command+click, for Mac users) to highlight several files at once.Submit an entire stack from your Sta.sh by hovering over a stack and clicking Submit!You can then change settings for each one, and then save them for later or submit them to your gallery. In addition, the Submit page will retain the order and settings of any files uploaded, even if you navigate away fro
Why it's important to put a disclaimer in art descEDIT: HI Please don't reply to the original comment unless you have serious inquiries. And if you do be mindful to be polite! U v U But this is specific to their case (though if it happens once it has to happen more than once) so I find value in warning others. DA does take the images down when reported most of the time without the disclaimer but it really can't hurt and it gives them less excuses to not carry through with your report. Thank you!Wow, so up till today I always found the "Please don't trace, redistribute, copy etc" was unnecessary in a lot of comments since people are going to do what they're going to do no matter what right? But wow lo and behold I found this comment in the disqus section of Artist Confessions. Basically what it's saying is due to DA's rules if the artist doesn't say to not trace then they cannot penalize reported tracers. At least that's what I'm drawing from

HTML Text Codes, Tips and Tricks for dAAbout a year ago I posted a news article called "Making Your Comments Look Nice". Since then I have found out many other codes that I think would be helpful to share with other deviants who may not know them, or are just looking for some new codes to spiff up their journals and comments! However, I can't say I have ALL of the codes available on deviantART. I just have posted the ones I have heard of. If you have any new ones not listed here, feel free to comment with them.You can also check out the deviantART FAQ, which has info on these codes as well: :faq104:To start things off, let's learn how to make these HTML codes work (:In order to make a code work, you must use this format:For example, if I put b into the format I showed you, it will come out as .This will then allow me to type in bold font!If you only want to put a code onto ONE word, you would have to do this: My name is Bob, nice to meet you.Using the sam
