Suggestion by noxiousone Suggestion by noxiousone
:wave: Hi yo,
Did you ever suggested a something for DD?
Well, belive me- It takes some time...
First you must find the appropriate gallery director, than to read his rules of suggesting DDs, that to write him a note with your suggestion and than you must wait for a reply... and sometimes you don't eaven recieve one :[
So I decided to make a suggestion about making this whole proces alot easier and enjoyable for everyone. Aaand let's give you some info about what you see...

On the first line, you can see that I've created a button for suggesting deviation, right under the 'collection' button. It will enabled if the deviation is not suggested, but if it has already been suggested it won't be link, just text. I t won't be better if it disappears, because alot of people won't understand what's happening and they might start contacting the Help desk... The button should get removed when deviation is already a DD ;]

In the box with suggesting you see some names. As you can read they are to the appropriate GDs or other members with the privilages of gallery director, to this deviation. This should be automaticly generated by the website. You see one lil 'Stop/Block' icons next to GDs names- these symbols will apear when the Gallery Director already sheduled a DD, so this will save you time and nervs waiting for a reply and the only thing you see is that he/she already sheduled a DD. So this section will help you deciding which gallery director you want to contact about suggesting the particular deviation...

I know that looks weird to have a link to the FAQ saying 'What is a Daily Deviation', but there are people that just click everywhere and It will be better for them to know what they are doing there ;]

Also there is a lil box, where you must write your blurb. If you desire your blurb to be written under the DD, than you must click the checkbox next to 'Desire to use my comment'.

After that, in the next image, you can see that I think that it would be better GD's to have their own tool/button, because they might go in this section often and etc. Hope ya understant =]

After that you can see a lil update in the message center. There is a category called 'DD Suggestiongs' and you understand what it's for =D...So there you can see 3 ways to view suggestions.

- The GD can see the suggested deviation, the artist comment. The 'Reply' and 'Shedule it' buttons are bigger. There is a button 'Block suggestions from this user' which I think wil be verry useful, because there will be people that just overflood the GD's sometimes and that can be a cool way to get rid of these preople... they will still be able to suggest DDs but they must do it via NOTES... I think that you understand everything here...

2nd- The GD can see only the artists comment, he can block him and use his comment again... But I don't think it's very useful way to vie suggestions...

3rd- Just the title and the lil close button...

Okey now I must tell somethin about the buttons there. You know what's the 'Reply' button for... Uuum the 'Shedule it' button is for sheduling deviations and after the GD clicks on it all the other suggestions will remove themself automaticly.You know what's the 'X' button for- but after closing the suggestion it will automaticly send a note to the deviant that his suggestion is rejected.

And there art the traditional buttons for removing all the suggestions and etc.

I hope you understood everything about this suggestion about improving deviantART. Please tell me if I gohn wrong anywhere and also please give some favs, comments and critics!

Yeah, y like it system, men.
It's really useful and innovative.
MADODE Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009
Excellent idea. We should sign a petition or something haha
but seriously, dA's system of DDs is just so.. inconvenient- both to the gallery director /and/ the suggestors.

And throwing in into the pool of ideas, maybe it should only be suggested once? :shrug: cause if it's already been denied once it probably will be again.

I'll wait for the day when they actually use this system! It'll be so much better :+fav:
