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.

I want the old logo back.
The new one is a disgusting eyesore.
Ikue Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm sorry to hear that.
wolfman-al Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
Also there is a discussion about the logo at the /gd/ graphic design board on 4chan. You might be interested in that:…
wolfman-al Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
Yeah, I bet.
You´re sorry but you don´t give a f*ck. 
At least the community can see now what to expect form the staff.
How about some constructive suggestions to us? How about a way that we can change the logo back from facist party logo to classic dA logo on our personal devices and computers? How about a poll? You decided this massive change over our heads and this is not okay. 
Believe me, I know the staff is now trying to wait untill this blows over, but you are not going to sit this one out, we will not be silenced. The new logo is a failure and you know it. Everybody I talked to hates it but most of them are not as vocal as I and some others are.
Please, please, please, please change it back!
For the sake of the community!!!

hello i was wondering if i could possibly have a dissuasion with you? i know you may of been asked allot about the logo so my apologizes for bringing it up again.

Many are saying 'it's stolen of some site' i want to at least know something of the staff so maybe this madness can end. i am tired of it really.

Please read through Our Story which explains the full development of the new DeviantArt logo and what it represents. :)

I have seen it already and still the video does not make any sense. i thank you for taking your time to rpely to me.

but what has been going on for the past 2 days has become a mess. a site should say just in case where their true ideas come from. this is why most may be so lost about this and claiming the staff' stole' when maybe in due fact where the staff 'so called paid' a company to make the logo in maybe facts that company just re cycle the logo of the Russian brand.

To me the staff need to look into this case if it happened. sorry to be a bum. the logo does not make me boiling mad . while i may not like half like it in time i may get used to it.

the logo doesn't even represent Deviantart, it only represents how the owners completely ignored how much the community disliked it you even had to have a video to explane it, and not only that its not even owned by deviant art so how can is represent it? ,, i still don't even get the logo, is it to half an A is it or is it a Z is it a lightning strike? of wait no its a DA cut in half and no one understood until a video explaned it to them, so how does a stolen logo scream Deviantart?
