Did you know? - Suggesting DDs

Mon Mar 3, 2014, 9:31 AM
DD is short for Daily Deviation and is - like the name lets you presume - a daily feature of artworks from different the galleries.
DDs can be featured by Community Volunteers and Staff members.

Suggesting DDs

While browsing it can happen that you come across deviations that you think should be featured as a DD, but how?

First of all you need to take a look at the gallery it was submitted to.
You can find this information in the description area, directly below the artwork itself.

With that category in mind, we are now heading over to communityrelations to take a look at this CV overview. It lists all volunteers and the gallery they take care of.

Beside the overview at communityrelations you can also find the same list at FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

For our example we now need to search for the Photography CVs.

As you can see there are plenty of them, so we take a closer look at the sub categories.  The deviation was submitted to "Animal, Plants & Nature", means to have to search for a CV that takes care of that. If we can't find anyone, then we stick to a general photography CV.

In this case there is a CV for "Animal, Plants & Nature". After that we also quickly check if there might be a special CV only for the "Birds" category, but as this is not the case we stick to our latest result.

Now you could go on by sending that deviation to the "A,P & N" CV via note right away, but it is recommend to check their DD guidelines first
(if there are any).
Most of the time a CV has their guidelines listed at their profile or links to them there. It makes sense to check those, if you are not familiar with suggestions in general or to that specific CV. They might have listed important things you should keep in mind for suggesting.

Go through those guidelines and then go ahead sending the note with the deviation.

And then you are done. Depending on the CV they will get back to you, if your suggestion was accepted or not.

:note: If you come across a deviation that has no CV, you can send your suggestions to Moonbeam13, Ikue, fourteenthstar or Thunderstatement.

As we write this article series for you, the community, we would like to know: What aspects of the website do you want to learn more about? Or what can you teach other deviants about? If we decide to use your suggestion we will be sure to credit you.
Thank you for your input in advance!

I've suggested DDs in the past, but 99.9% of the time I don't get a response from the CV. So I gave up suggesting :(

Like i said to others already, not everyone responds to notes, unless you directly ask for. Or it just takes a while until they would get back to you. And then there is the chance that they wanted to feature something in the feature, but their time as a CV was up before.

That makes sense. :)

Nice article! Main thing I learned was that the Artisan Crafts Gallery needs more CV's xD

I suggested something to neurotype recently but she couldn't feature it because the preview image was off Google :iconcryforeverplz:

Now that you've posted this wonderful guide... I guess I have no reason to be so lazy... I so rarely suggest people for DDs :noes:

That's always a shame if that happens. Or if credits are missing.

Then you have a mission now! :eager:
