DD Guidelines.


Feel free to send me DD suggestions for Photography - Animals, Plants & Nature, but try to follow these guidelines when doing so:

:bulletgreen: Send your suggestions to me Anoya in a note with the title "DD suggestion" with 1 suggestion per note (or max. 3 from the same artist if you really can't choose!). Also, please add thumbs instead of links (or even both!). Thumbs can be created by copy/pasting the :thumb#####: on the right side of the deviation you're suggesting!

TUT: Thumb Codes, Links + Emb. by TimberClipse

:bulletgreen: Add a short description of why you think this piece deserves a DD. You don't have to, but I would appreciate if you would!

:bulletgreen: Send your suggestion to only one CV please!

:bulletgreen: Make sure you don't suggest piece/pieces from deviants who have received a DD in the past 6 months.

:bulletgreen: Please understand that I can not reply to all DD suggestions, since I get a lot of them!

:bulletgreen: You may suggest your own deviations!

:bulletred: Please don't send me suggestions that you've sent to other volunteers or staff members recently, so we can avoid mix ups. Thanks!
If I haven't responded in a couple of weeks, you're welcome to send it to another CV or staff member!

:bulletred: Please send Macro Photography suggestions to MarcosRodriguez!

:bulletblue: When I send you a note that your suggestion has been accepted, please don't tell the deviant. That will ruin the surprise for them!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda
Nominated by MayEbony

"Nancy is a Community Volunteer in the APN (Animals, Plants & Nature) section of dA, but she is also so much more. Always kind-hearted and totally selfless, Nancy goes out of her way to help anyone who crosses her path. She replies kindly when she can't accept a nomination for a DD, but often features the nominations in her own stunning journals and enjoys giving the artists exposure anyway. She also cares that the artists see they were nominated, because of the joy they will feel through that honour. Nancy makes time in her busy schedule to answer all of the messages that come to her, and even if you ask about a topic she doesn't know, she will find out who you should ask. Her photography is truly beautiful and she is so kind with her comments to others both in her journals and on her deviations. Her life motto appears to be 'I want to help others'. She is definitely living that, supporting it with a great deal of love, and spreading joy far and wide."

Artist | Photography
I've joined dA in 2004. My passion for photography grew and my community spirit and 'pay it forward' mentality started growing really fast. I love commenting, giving critiques, talking to deviants.. just the entire community!

I received `Seniority on Christmas Eve 2009, the day before Christmas, which was a complete surprise. I never got used to that little tick, and it made me smile every time I noticed it.

From June 1st, 2010, the day before my birthday, to December 1st, 2011, I was the Gallery Moderator Community Volunteer for the Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature category.
On August 29th, 2013, I started my second term as the Animals, Plants & Nature Photography Community Volunteer!

I also have an extra badge that won't show in the top bar. It keeps me safe from tigers and lions, according to Mathness who made it for me!

Personal Quote: "You're getting as much in life as you can handle."


Would you mind getting a DD on an old(er) deviation? 

156 deviants said No, I'd appreciate the DD either way!
20 deviants said Yes, I think I've grown a lot and would mind getting a DD on an older deviation.
7 deviants said It depends, (insert comment, please).
1 deviant said I don't want a DD in the first place.
No deviants said Other, (insert comment, please).
