Being new is fun too!

:star: 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!?

:star: 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!

While you are here, please read the "About Us" tab!

Group Info

All right, so this time when I decided to come and make a new group, I picked the goal very carefully. The cause is deviantART-related. One of my recent hobbies here on dA has been to lurk on the Today page in the drop down menu of the deviantART logo.

It makes me really happy when I can give other deviants a nice warm welcome to this website and I have gotten great satisfaction of seeing them thrive from it. I've been on this site for nearly four years, and I've noticed that people have struggled to make their stay comfortable due to just simply lack of knowledge about the site's rules just because someone didn't tell them! I feel that if we as deviants can work together hard, we can really help others out. I for one am someone who had to learn about the site's rules the hard way.

Sometimes people need a gentle push in the right direction. I feel it is better that way because nowadays people don't just read the rules and FAQs unless someone encourages them to. So, why not go around encouraging people to while giving them a warm welcome? :)

I want this group's goal to become known wide by others as my goals have become known by many. Let's work together to make this work! It feels good to help others out anyways! :D

Holy shit, this group's been around since four years ago.

I feel really old...

Also Justin, can this group be featured on Artist-World? :shifty: Might get more people into the cause of welcoming people to dA.

I'll see what I can do.

(Did the today page move or something? I haven't hardly been on dA in like... ages.)
ThatWasLeftHanded Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
It's basically the new home page.
OneLoveDrew Featured By Owner Edited Nov 2, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Another question. I feel as if the today page with new deviants doesn't update deviants as they join so I can't really welcome people who literally just joined. :nuu: Any ideas?
