I apologize for the third journal update in a row today; I assure you I don't make a habit of this, but something very, very urgent came up.
In a recent news article
"There is a spam comment going around which appears to only post on deviations. The text is "rofl this may be relevant to your interests" and is a link.
If you get this comment please do not click the link. If you do it will send out comments like it through your account to other deviations."
In a journal entry
"A lot of comments with links are hitting peoples pages, these are SPAM. Even if they are from a name you know and trust, avoid clicking outside DA links until we have the all clear."
"If you have clicked a link please post a journal warning people not to click links from your account and change your password (I have not yet got any news on whether or not accounts are being taken over, or just used to divert messages, better safe than sorry)"
I advise full caution until the matter has been solved.
I only accept suggestions from the deviantART Related
Note me a thumbnail, not a link, of the deviation you wish to be featured with the title "DD Suggestion".
Include a writeup with your suggestion telling me why
you think the deviation should be featured.
Not all suggestions will be featured.
If you do not want the public to know that you suggested something in particular, please let me know ahead of time.
If a user has received a Daily Deviation within the past three months, please do not suggest another from them.
I will not respond to every single note.FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation? FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?
I've been chosen as Gallery Moderator for the deviantART related
Thank you all very much for the kind comments! I'll be getting back to each and every one of you as soon as I can.
It's an honour to be part of the Community Relations team. I appreciate that $Moonbeam13
chose me. I'm going to do the best that I can do. It'll take time before I get used to things, so I'm going to explore and get a feel for them.
I'll be updating this journal again in a few hours outlining rules for Daily Deviation suggestions, so until then please hold on those.
I need time to catch up before I start any projects. I have some ideas in mind, but I'm not going to share them just yet.
