How to Welcome New Deviants
Go to this clickable link to go to deviantART's Today page. You then scroll down until you see the words "Say Hellow To Our Newest Deviants!", click the button labeled "Say Hi" which will redirect you to their page, then type out your message.
The welcome I usually use is typically on the lines of this: "Welcome to deviantART! Please do be sure to read deviantART's faqs especially about submission policies and interaction on this site and make sure you submit your art to many groups so that you will be noticed more quickly! I do hope you enjoy this amazing site that I have come to love!" ... Not only does it make them feel welcomed to this site, but it it even links them to deviantART's FAQs as well! Isn't that nice!?
Non-English Speaking Deviants
One of my concerns is what language a deviant speaks. I speak three other languages, but NOT all fluently. If you speak a language other than English, you would be really helpful to our cause!
For those of you who don't speak a language other than English, when welcoming other users to this site, it is typically recommended you look for tell-tale signs that they do speak the language you speak! Signs in their username, their country, and if present, their deviantID.
All right, if you've read this far, I really appreciate it! Now, are you ready to start welcoming users to this website? Okay! Get going! If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
