A New Community Volunteer Vacancy

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 10, 2012, 5:27 PM
Do you love deviantART and its community? Do you have a lot of experience with it? Do you do a lot for the community; like featuring art and running groups, contests and projects? Do you have a positive presence on dA and leadership abilities? Are you 18 or older?

If you answer 'yes' to those, perhaps you should look into applying to be Community Volunteer for Community Projects :)

In my experience, the Community Relations team is a wonderful group of people, and if you're heavily engaged in deviantART, helping out from a CV position is one of the best experiences you can get :happybounce: This counts whether you're applying for Community Projects, or for another area.

I should make clear that I am not leaving the Community Relations team myself; I will still be a volunteer :) I will just focus more on mentoring and the chats & forums and on personal projects myself.


:bulletred: In the Pay-It-Forward ProjectAzizrianDaoXrak wants to give Premium Memberships to deserving deviants. You can donate or make a suggestion - for yourself or someone else!

:bulletred: lalaith913 participated in Reasons to Love  dA's Lit Community (which of the two articles she's in remains a mystery!) and won a feature in this journal.

They Say I'm GuiltyOf the nearly eighty female prisoners that had answered my request, I had narrowed my choices down to two of them.  The first was a voluptuous, porcelain-skinned brunette that would make my brother drool in seconds.  The second was a golden-haired, frail little piece of work, and normally I would have dismissed her during the first round of eliminations, but something kept her there.  Maybe it was the way she stared at me with her venomous green eyes, but I couldn't be sure.  In any case, I had my two choices set before me, each isolated in separate cells on opposite ends of the jail so that I might observe them more personally.
I turned to the prison guard.  "What can you tell me about this one?"  I was starting with the brunette.
"Number 67," he practically spat.  "Don't believe a word she tells you.  She's as good a liar as they come."
I wondered at what sort of lies she had told the guard because clearl
  TempestuousThere’s a violence waiting to be invoked
A storm ready to break
flames and hurricane winds
electrical shocks
From the concussive
rendezvous of lips
that simpletons call a first kiss.
When the rain begins to fall
and the calm eye is hours ahead
I won't care who gets washed away
and I wouldn't mind if it were me.

A few Q&A
:eager: Please ask me your questions! I've answered a few obvious ones already below.

:ponder: by Taimotive In short, what's the main role of the CV of Community Projects?
Primarily helping and supporting other people with their contests and projects, promoting awesome projects and generally looking after the Community Projects galleries.
If you have any other specific questions about this please do ask!

=( (Sad) Why are you stepping down from Community Projects?
Because it will be best for the gallery to have someone dedicated to it. I am on a break from it to focus on my internship right now, but after my internship I will look for another job again, next to my study... and in the meantime I do many other things for the CR team and the rest of the community too. Having someone specifically dedicated to Community Projects would be much better.

Waaaah! Will you still be a volunteer? Will you still be around?
Definitely! I'll stay on the team as a Mentor and as a Chat & Forum CV. I'll also use any extra time and energy to work on other projects on dA so you'll see me around at least as much.

Bucktooth When are we going to get some blogs about your internship?
I don't have enough to fill weekly blogs and keep them remotely interesting to anyone but me xD But I'm certainly planning to write something about my experiences so far later.

:-? (Confused) Your question here ;D Please ask away! :)

Interested in volunteering for the community?

Wait. I thought community volunteers had a ' next to their names o.o
namenotrequired Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Student Interface Designer
The ` is for senior members (some of whom used to be Community Volunteers), current CVs have a ^ :)

(See FAQ #106: What are the symbols in front of each deviants nickname?)
AikoSukoshi Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
Oh. O.o
Derp moment. Luuuul.

Another question, then. So say someone is 1 month old right, but has had an enormous influence on the can that one month old deviant become a senior member? ; w;
namenotrequired Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Student Interface Designer
Technically, yes. But I don't think they'd want to give them seniority yet, usually it takes at least around a year ^^
AikoSukoshi Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
Have you had any cases where you've given seniority to someone younger? o.o
namenotrequired Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Student Interface Designer
I don't give seniority myself, and I don't think it's ever gone to someone that's been on dA for a lot less than a year (except perhaps in the first years of dA itself...)
AikoSukoshi Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
Oh lol.
Thanks for the help.)
namenotrequired Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Student Interface Designer
No problem :)

Why, do you have anyone in mind that should be a senior? :D

Not 18 yet. :saddummy:

But hey! I can still help out in the community without being a CV! :dummy:
namenotrequired Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Student Interface Designer
Certainly! And maybe next time :hug:
