Ever since DeviantArt changed its name symbols, they've become far more apparent. 

So when I took a quick scroll through my message center today I noticed there sure where a lot of senior members that messaged me since the last time I checked. Took me a while to notice that it was actually my username that had the icon -- and that name sure is all over the place in my own message center (for those that are wondering; I wasn't fully awake yet).

Seems like I've been awarded senior membership! :la:


Which is, according to descriptions, something more or less similar to winning a community award. In the sense that you can't buy one and the only way to get one is to get awarded one by DeviantArt.

The reasons of why I got such an award are pretty much shrouded in mystery (and that's for a reason, for as far as I could understand). 
But to all who suggested or supported me; thanks a lot! 

It's great getting so much positive feedback from the community.

(I still have to get used to the new icon, though. I've had the beta icon for 3 years and I'm a creature of habit XD)

I just knew you would get it one day :D so my suggesting wasn't for nothing, and here I thought deviantART staff doesn't read those messages, lol. Anyway, congratulations! And I really need to get back on track with your journals, I enjoy reading them. So I can perhaps apologize for being so late, too

Well, lots of people have to suggest you. Like, lots LOTS. If deviants think there is someone suitable for senior status, they write to dA staff a huge essay of "why and why and why and why" c: I don't know how many people need to write this, but there surely must be many of them. And I think more people here need senior account, so maybe this may be may new dA job, looking for people deserving senior accounts? :D

That's actually a pretty noble goal.
I still didn't know what I exactly did to be deserving of such an honor. I mean; most seniors have a long history of working on groups and whatnot. I just talk with a lot of people... mostly because I like to talk XD
But then again, judging from the comment section and all the people that liked it, I guess it was well deserved after all ^^

Aw I was kind of hoping you were going to get the Devious Award of the Month, but at least your wise words and kindness is being rewarded. Congratulations! :D

Nah, the devious award is for people that do a lot of community work with groups and such. 
I think I'm still a long way from that, as I'm mainly working on my own art and such ^^

Hi there Senior DamaiMikaz!   I was a Deviant art member about over 10 years ago but somehow lost my way and then started over again.   I do appreciate your Lama (something I don't remember having in the early days) so thank you very much.   You are quite the artist and writer!!

warmly

vin

You really deserve it! Your journal entries are very informative and I have learned that you all have to start from somewhere and we are all artists of equal value, I quote "No us or them" (or something like that)
Anyway,

Congratulations!
And to all the children congratulations! *clapping*

First, let me say congratulations on the Senior Membership. Secondly, let me say thank you for the LLama, although I'm not entirely sure what it means.  I joined Deviantart so I could learn from other artists, so much so far by now that it seems immeasurable and yet it still keeps propagating. It was also a great opportunity to showcase a gallery with the possibility of someone buying something I created if they were interested.  Thanks again for looking at my artwork.

hmm not sure but you should have now option to put on your DApage  a senior membership award note....where should be perfectly described why you get award and from who.)....

no push to show us but if you got any question about it...this should answer them:)

It's the same icon, but a different thing. DA is confusing sometimes XD
