deviantART is the most inclusive and largest art website in existence, bringing together artists from across the world and across almost all artistic disciplines to one central community. Millions of writers, photographers, street artists, painters, designers, tattooists, videographers, artisans - and all breeds of creative people in-between [besides musicians, we clearly don't want anything to do with their kind!]. From every walk of life and with every sort of perspective, mingling together in an environment that ideally is an open and supportive place for each of us to exchange our ideas and our art. That is a big deal, with a potential that should not be underestimated. And that environment is built, maintained, and improved by the staff's constant efforts.

Inappropiate comments, critiques and insultsDeviantART is a community of artists; as such, it offers not only the opportunity to showcase artwork but to interact with other artists, receive feedback, offer advice, find friendship and even get a job! If art is the heart of this site, the interaction of their members are the veins that make the whole thing function, without interaction there wouldn't be a community.Inappropiate comments, critiques and insults by Thiefoworld
And just as blood flows through veins in a smooth way in order to keep everything clean and in order, the interaction within the community should flow the same way, in an atmosphere of tolerance and respect.
