Flying Time

I guess the old adage is true. Time really does fly when you're having fun. This past Sunday marked my 5-year work Anniversary with DeviantArt. It's been an exciting rollercoaster of events. So much has changed and grown since I joined the staff. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone. It's been a wild ride and I can't wait to keep stepping into the unknown with all of you.

In the brief time I've been in an official capacity to help all of you I've solved well over 96k helpdesk tickets through zendesk. I was hoping to hit the 100k mark by my anniversary, but you guys seem to have everything under control! I guess that's a good thing… I suppose if I were to try and add the couple hundred tickets I solved through our old helpdesk system whilst I was early on in my training Not to mention the notes and comments I receive  I may be closer to that goal but I'm not gonna split hairs.  It's been an absolute blessing helping all of you these past few years. I hope in the most part it was as good for you as it was for me!


Je Suis Charlie Hebdo
In Paris, France, 13 people were murdered on January 7th, 2015, and among them 5 cartoon artists. Murdered for being artists and journalists of a humor and satirical newspaper, “Charlie Hebdo.” The newspaper was under police protection and at least one of the police guards, unarmed, was killed as he begged for mercy lying in the street.

Hey there, It would really depend on the subject matter. I work with the general help or bug reports system. If you're having issues using DA in general I'm your guy. If you need help with Policy or abuse of some sort then someone from the CEA team would be able to assist you better. :)
RMS-OLYMPIC Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay then, thanks for answering!!

I'm having troubles with someone breaching the DA rules and regulations, and it sounds like to me someone else would help there.

I appreciate you helping me!
