We all have our way of using DeviantArt to engage and build relationships with other Deviants around art. We submit deviations and the community kicks into gear with comments, favs, shares and new watchers. But there are times when engagement is not as high, or it doesn't happen as quickly as normal.
We're thinking of a place dedicated to kindred activities (engagement prompts) that you could do for the Deviants in your community.
You might ask — How is that any different from how I comment, favourite and share right now?
WELL, HERE’S THE ANSWER:
- The deviations and Deviants you engage with will be aligned with the Kindred spirit of the DeviantArt community. In other words, they will be surfaced here because they may not have received the love and consideration they deserve.
Getting a fave or a comment on a work-in-progress could be more valuable than waiting for feedback on the finished piece.
- Your participation in this place could potentially earn you a NEW badge!
We are not sure what this would look like yet, but we know what it’s for.
- Our goal is for this to be a more fun and direct way to engage with your community!
So far, our working title for this place is called: Support. We referred to it recently in a journal about profile page ideas.
