Hey everyone! :wave:

First of all, I have to say how proud I am of all of you! You have done great in helping me collect the 63,600 points needed to give out 100 Premium Memberships! :la:

For those of you who do not know, I, winehaus am collecting 63,600 points in order to give 100 3-month premium memberships to other deviants this holiday season. The purpose is for you and other deviants to donate and spread the word and holiday cheer!


Now I will be giving you all an update on what's going on!

We are over 26,000 points in to the project which is amazing! :) However, it is not enough.
I know what you're thinking. "It's just September!" but if you think about it, that means 3 months until December, which really is not a lot.

Right now we need 36,882 points to complete the project. It may sound like a lot but we can get there with a simple technique.

If 1,476 deviants donate just 25 points, we will have a total of just over 63,600 points.


This is crazy cool! 1,476 deviants is a very small portion of the users deviantART has.

So now that you see how easy it is to complete this project, what can you do to help?
:bulletblue: Donate 25 (or more) points to me, winehaus!
:bulletblue: Favourite this Journal so hundreds, if not thousands of deviants can see it, too!
:bulletblue: Make a Journal and/or poll showcasing this article! (Make sure you link/thumb it. ;))
:bulletblue: Encourage your friends to donate!

:lightbulb: Discuss! :lightbulb:
:bulletblue: How do you think the Premium Memberships should be given out and why?

Thanks for reading and I know we can do this! :excited:

Love and thanks,
winehaus
:heart:

i just gave you random stars kay? XD
i think the PMs should be given to people that have been in dev art for at least 1 month, and to the people who work hard and make people laugh and smile, they don't have to be the best artist in the world, thats why people watch others, to show that they respect or like their art and appreciate it when that one person respects them back, but no plz, ask and moved/old accounts, i also think you should give it to people who don't spam and make fun of/troll others:iconmapletehcat:OUT, thanks for reading:iconjosefelipem:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
24 out of 30 deviants thought this was fair.

:icontailsorigins:
This is really a sweet and nice thing to do, you should be proud of yourself :3 Not many people have the money/time to actually buy or make points to get a premium, so this is great.

But let me get to the point, I think you should give the point's out to less popular artist so that way they can find ways to advertise and possibly get more watcher's.

That's my thoughts, although any way would be just as fine. It's really the thought that counts and this is fantastic :)

God Bless your soul.


Sincerely, Your Friend and Watcher,

Hmm... How are you going to give them out? Are you just going to pick random deviants?

I put it in mine! [link]

probably not getting much publicity though... Only 2 watchers... =.=

You're amazing for doing this, it's going really well!

I think the premiums should be given out to active, helpful deviants. Those who make time for others (whether it be to offer advice, critique or perhaps just to listen) and who are generally positive. :nod:

I seriously can't believe it's coming up to a year since you started this project. It's kinda freaky how fast time goes by. :paranoid:

I think that you should give the PM's to active, less popular users. Then, it would be easier for them to advertise there works and such. By the way, I think that it's really nice that you are doing this and I hope that you are able to achieve your goal point-wise. Have a great day! :wave:

September isn't really that far; let's go team!
I have recently opened up Point Commissions, so don't you fret! Just how many deviants, out of 23 million, can make a difference! I didn't know that!

How do you think the Premium Memberships should be given out and why?
I think it should be given to active users. Perhaps those who give critiques and try to be helpful to the community. (Not the dA critiques specifically, but critiquing as in trying to give constructive criticism to help other artists improve). Post art semi-regularly. Try to chat. Try to keep in touch with their watchers. Etc.

This is a really good idea! :D

A lot of artists out there deserve premium, but don't have the money/points/watcher donations to reach premium.

I think that points should be given out to artists who aren't very popular, but are active users.
Most popular artists already have people donating premiums to them or commissioning them so that they can afford premium.
I also think that these premiums should be evenly distributed among different kinds of artists. (e.g. not all the people who receive the premiums are photographers or painters.)
