This is me

Keywords on deviations were built to be an important tool to help discover artwork. But as deviantART grows and strives to create new ways to discover great content, we’ve found that keywords as we currently use them have become underutilized.  We think we can do better -- and can make a better experience for the community -- by making some changes.


In the coming month, keywords will transition into tags, and we’ll be improving the way they work. Tags will better surface artwork, allow deviants to form communities around topics, make it easier to find other artists and art appreciators, and increase discoverability.  

For example, if you're a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles it can be difficult to know what to search for: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja Turtles, TMNT, Donatello, etc.  Public tags provide visibility to see how others are tagging their deviations, which will allow you to align your behavior to the norm, or choose to be deviant!


Getting Started


You’ll hear more about tags in the coming month, but to prepare for the upcoming release now, we wanted to let you know that:


  1. Keywords are changing to tags.

  2. Tags will soon be publicly visible on deviation pages.

  3. Our system will automatically transition some of your keywords to the appropriate tags for better discoverability when tags fully launches (for example, common keyword phrases such as “lord of the rings” will become “#lordoftherings”).
    

As a reminder, tags on deviations can be edited at any time.  If you’d like to update your deviations before any changes are released, now’s the time to do so!  (Simply visit any of your deviations and click the "Edit" button.  You don't need to add a hashtag before a tag, but you can!)





Frequently Asked Questions


Question:
Some of my new deviation tags look weird.  What gives?

Answer:
The old keyword field was unstructured, while new tags are all single words.  In the keyword to tag conversion process, we had to do a bit of guesstimation regarding the translation.  A keyword field for "my little pony" might mean “#mylittlepony,” while "sunset australia watercolor" might intend "#sunset #australia #watercolor."  In the event you see a tag that doesn't apply to your deviation, simply remove anything not appropriate.

Question:
I can only enter 64 tags to describe my deviation, but I was previously able to enter as many keywords as I wanted.  What gives?

Answer:
Public tags provide visibility around seeing how others are tagging their deviations.  One of the problems with keywords was that everyone had to invent their own terms or guess what others were using.  There would be many keywords around the same topic -- my little pony, mlp, mplfim, mylittlepony, my_little_pony, fim, friendshipismagic, and so forth.  By making tags public, you'll be able to discover tags that the community is using in a more predictable way.  Having 10 or 20 relevant tags will enable more people to see your art than having 100 irrelevant ones.


Your Feedback


We’re excited to show you what we’re working on, and will be updating you more about the power of tags in the coming month.  
For now, we’d love to hear your feedback:

  • Do you add keywords to all of your deviations? Roughly how many do you typically add?

  • Do you base your keywords on medium, subject matter, or other things?

  • What keywords do you commonly search for?


Let us know how you’re currently using keywords, so we can make the new tags as powerful and as useful as possible.

Heidi. Female. American. Tall. Sarcastic. Athletic. Bossy. Financial enthusiast. Olympics lover. TV/fandom fanatic.

I've been fortunate to be involved with deviantART from day one and have held a variety of positions over the past thirteen years. Today, I'm deviantART's Vice President of Marketing.

I graduated college with a Journalism major and Political Science minor, and enjoy all aspects of news and politics. I can often be found watching Fox News, CNN, or CNBC during the wee hours of the morning.

When I'm not working, my hobbies include playing and watching almost all sports (basketball, softball/baseball, volleyball, football, tennis, etc.), traveling, geocaching, investing, and trying to be as funny as humanly possible. When it's time to relax, I'll turn on the television or read a book.

I also used to run GilmoreGirls.org, which was pretty epic during its heyday.

Deviousness Award

-awarded December 1969

Bolt Award

For her outstanding work with deviantART, Heidi is presented with the illustrious Bolt Award for 2008. Heidi is the embodiment of community spirit, dedication, and drive that makes deviantART what it is today. Her positive attitude and inspiring personality has been an influence on the formation of the site since the very beginning, and without her, deviantART would be a much duller and less magical place.
-awarded July 2008
