Firstly, a huge thank you to SanguineEpitaph for organising deviantART Staff Appreciation Week and inspiring Indae and I to start this project. :heart:

:iconstaffappreciation:


Without further ado, we’d like to announce the winners of our Contest. :eager:

First Place
DXD ICON by FireGemini
Dedicated to dxd, made by FireGemini
This entry stood out because of it's fantastic use of the template, and a great depiction of dxd's icon and deviantID. :leetcrab:


Second Place
Ikue - Staff Appreciation by litecrush
Dedicated to Ikue, made by litecrush
We liked that this entry was nicely personalised and dedicated to Ikue. The colours and design are also very appealing. c:


The People's Favourite
:thumb252100768:
Dedicated to fourteenthstar, made by nikkittie
Overall a brilliant entry. The awesome colours and grunge style appealed to many. <3
For the full results of the people's favourite, see this journal: death-wishes.deviantart.com/jo…


Congratulations all! :hooray:



However, this was first and foremost a project, aiming to make a compilation to show our appreciation for the deviantART staff. Thanks to the fantastic array of project entries we received, we have been able to put together this deviation as a thank you from all of us:

A Compilation for the dA Staff by death-wishes
:dalove:



We’d now like to share with you a collection of comments about the deviantART Staff, and to feature some deviations made by the Staff themselves. :heart:


"The dA staff are the gears behind the scenes, keeping things running smoothly even when dArama abounds. Their dedication to the site is kinda the basis of what the larger community is built on. Basically, they rock lots." - SparklyDest


Happy 9th birthdAy by damphyr Red Bull Creation by beautifulyuki Saturdays by spyed


"The $taff is truly amazing! I appreciate what they do for the community and for deviantART :heart: They work hard to make our experience here at dA magical!" - Quolia


TheFancyNarwhal Sticker Set II by aunjuli Happy Birthday deviantART by makepictures Turn on the Red Light by Moonbeam13


"I MEASURE AWESOME IN MOONBEAMS. The highest moonbeam something can be is 13."- Athos-of-Light


Getaway Snack 2 by danlev Poison Ivy by megturney Clay Fella by LaurenKitsune


The Staff have allowed us to flourish as a community into what we are today - yes, this is cheesy but without them we wouldn't have the welcoming atmosphere that we do at dA.” - Phlum


My gallery needs more cats by Ayame-Kenoshi DeviantART Logo Icon by TheRyanFord :eagerpee: by Ikue


"The Staff at Deviantart are some of the most helpful and amazing people! Without them or this site I probably wouldn't be confident at art! Reading some of their journals always makes me smile too! :)" - King-Char


Black Ink - U2 by starvingartist Bergamot Art Show by codenamepanther Soft City SoundOnce upon a time
You and I
Became the smoke in a saxophone song
In a starry still-wet city
In a moment
That didn't quite happen
So much as it was imagined
I sleep and imagine it again



dA is like a city already, a big one, and the staff members try their best to keep it running and organized, and taking care of a community like this gotta be a lot of work. So, for all that work: THANK YOU, dA's STAFF! :XD:” - FlamerXMagofire


Right of way by fourteenthstar Raccoons! by 20after4 :thumb245141332:

You guys. ;A;

You guys. ;A;

The entire article was so lovely, it brought metaphorical tears to my eyes. :happycry: I love how you laid it out, how you presented the results, and the quotes that were included

You yourselves are outstanding, thank you for all of your help in making the dASAW what it is and has been (and will be).

I am so, so glad you like it. :happycry: Indie has been feeling super ill today, so I've been frantically working my socks of trying to finish this, while poking her via text every now and then for a second opinion. :faint: I checked it for typos so many times I've probably memorised half of the article. :facepalm:

Thank you so much for the kind words! :iconcryforeverplz: It makes this project so much better to see people's good reactions to all our hard work <3

Now we've almost finished this project (I just need to finish individually thanking and noting the staff members, and then hand out prizes.) I hope to enter the stamp and/or emote projects... :plotting:

It was our pleasure. :aww: And I think they do - we've heard back from a few staff members, including $spyed. :wow: $makepictures was really sweet :happycry: I'm so glad this was successful! At first I was worried because we didn't get many entries for a while.

Any time, Xak. :hug:
