Good evening and good weekend to you Deviant Art,
For your consideration; a rare Friday evening journal entry. (this must be a sign I'm getting old because its a Friday night and I'm staying in). I was perusing my watched deviations when I noticed that some people have little icons next to their names. Have you seen these? I guess it denotes if you have a premium membership, or if you are a beta tester or lifetime member. I also noticed that they have a category for "Senior Members". This sounds pretty cool to me! I don't know what you get with a senior membership but it certainly has some prestige with it. Deviant Art says there aren't specific requirements to become a senior member but some loose guidelines can be found below:
"So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognize their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endeavor, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognized in the crowd.
These criteria make sense to me. I like that Deviant Art has this new category in its rank. I'm not too humble to admit that I would love to be a senior member myself. I have been an active member of the DA community for over 8 years and a premium member since the option was first offered. That said, the people I have seen that are Senior Members are AMAZING. I could never hope to catch up to their talents.
Any way, "I say good on you" to Deviant Art for offering this. I think its a great incentive to continue to try and be a supportive member of the DA community.
PS: I'm curious, is a Senior Membership something you "reader" would be interested in obtaining?
