Points - Get Some, Give Some

Sat Oct 6, 2012, 6:29 PM
:happybounce: Welcome to this special issue of What's Going On?? focussing specifically on events related to deviantART Points!:points: There are some wonderful causes to donate points to! And if you don't have any points to donate, this issue will help you with that too :D

(Also see: FAQ #234: What are Points?)

Good Causes

You can support all of these good causes by donating points!

Outside deviantART
Within deviantART

Earning Points

Of course, the easiest way to get points is by going to the Points page to simply buy them.

But not everyone has the means to do so - plus, 'easiest' isn't always the most fun, right?! If you're willing to work for it, there are ways to get points without it costing you anything. For example, you can sell prints and Premium Content (if you already have access to it),  stalk llamatrade, do commissions, set up a donation pool and participate in contests!

Here is a bunch of recent contests you can win Points and Premium Memberships in (and often other prizes too) :eager:


All these contests include points (and/or premium memberships) in their prizes! :D
If you want to run your own contest or project, but don't know how? See A Guide to Individually Hosted Contests and A Guide to Group-Hosted Contests on dA for tips! For any more help at all, see Run Your Own Community Project :la:

    Softly, She Steps Among the StarsTwinkle, twinkle little star
    How far away and pale you are.
    Although the moon shines so bright
    You stay by her side throughout the night.
    Twinkle, twinkle little star
    How far away and pale you are.

    The tape recorder clicked as its message ended. Noshah lay still for a long time with it tucked into the crook of her chest, her fingers hugging it close. Her bed, wedged tightly below the window in her room, was a perfect vantage point for seeing out into the night sky. She watched the moon for a long time. It hung like a solid ornament among dark branches, whole but small against the backdrop of the sky. Her mother had told her about the trees, how they held up the moon and stars. She thought of her mother as a star, sitting along one of the arched crooks of the tree, brushing the stardust out of her long hair.
    Her father constantly told her to stop thinking such fantasies, he said that she was far too old to believe in such things now. But Noshah knew he was not really angry at her
