Promoted Deviations and Journals

Thu May 23, 2013, 12:27 PM


Table of Contents

What is Promoted?

Promoted deviations and journals are pieces of media we believe you should know about.  They appear and act just like any other deviation or journal in your Message Center, with the exception that they're clearly marked as Promoted.  As with all deviations and journals, they can be commented on, favorited, shared, and more.


Where does Promoted come from?

Promoted messages are selected by and sent from deviantART.  They represent deviations and journals we believe are of significant importance -- so much so that we want them to have a greater reach within the deviantART network.


Who sees Promoted?

A Promoted deviation or journal will only appear in a deviant's Message Center if the content involved will likely be of high relevance to the deviant.


How often will Promoted be seen?

We're only interested in sending Promoted messages we believe are relevant and valuable. As such, we will remain extremely mindful when considering which messages are sent and how often.


Can deviants remove Promoted messages from their Message Centers?

As with all deviations and journals that appear in Message Centers, Promoted messages can be closed by clicking the "X" next to the deviation or journal, or by selecting multiple messages and choosing the "Remove" option.


Can deviants opt out of receiving Promoted?

Premium Members can opt out of receiving Promoted messages by visiting the General section of their Settings and unchecking "Check here to receive Promoted messages." Non-Premium Members cannot opt out.


Can deviants opt out of receiving Hot Topics or Contest Announcements?

While Premium Members have the ability to opt out of receiving Promoted messages, they cannot opt out of Hot Topics or Contest Announcements. This is because deviantART needs to maintain an open channel with deviants for official communications.

NO NO NO. dA, this is a poor decision on your part. I don't appreciate getting random spam in my inbox any more than any of these people before me. And no, the stuff is definitely NOT relevant to my interests.

If I will see more spam I will begin to comment EACH promoted image with this comment:

"I HAVE NOTHING PERSONAL AGAINST THE ARTIST, BUT I NEVER ASKED TO SEE THIS PROMOTED IN MY MESSAGE CENTER. IT'S NOT RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS. PLEASE DEVIANTART ADMINISTRATORS: STOP SPAMMING US!". 

Could be an effective way to force DA to stop with this UNWANTED and UNSOLICITED "service".

hey, thats not a bad idea. Maybe even get the artists being 'promoted' to say something.

Eww. I see the point and promoting artists is a nice idea. But forcing us to pay for our right to keep our mail boxes clean is just ... eww. Please don't.

What you're doing is bad. Requiring people to pay to disable this. For the first time since I'm premium (I got my first premium two or three years ago if I remember correctly), I'm considering to not renew my subscription.

This is essentially spam. you might get people migrating to sites like weebly because you are so annoying. Just because whoever monitors this thinks it's relevant doesn't mean it is. Let the community decide!

I hope you're joking, she's endorsing corrupt ways of getting people to pay money to remove unwanted ads in our inboxes if we are non-premium members. Don't you see how insanely unjust that is? :hmm:

What happened to our rights to unsubscribe? What happened to freedom of choice without having to pay to be freed from email spam? :[
