PE Senior Week: A Home for Seniors

Senior Week

Senior Week

A Home for Seniors

There are many community projects specifically run by senior members on dA. This article aims to highlight a few of them and introduce different places on deviantART that serve as an online nursing home of sorts.

dAmn Chatroom


This channel highlights senior news, often hosts senior run events, and serves as a friendly hangout for all kinds of artists.


Groups on deviantART foster some of deviantART's tightest communities. Groups relating to the senior member community are no exception. Projects, article series, and contests are all held in these various groups. Watching them will help you stay up to date and connected with senior members. 

This group highlights senior projects and serves as a homebase for senior related activity. A lot of important articles come through dAseniors, and it offers information on seniors and community events.

seniormentors is a mentoring project for the community. Seniors serve as mentors, and any deviant can sign up to
be mentored. It's a great way to get 1:1 help from an experienced member. 

This wonderful project is run by seniors. The aim of the project is to produce features that highlight amazing art from the community. Reading their articles is  a wonderful way to discover new art. 

:iconcommunityops: & :iconcommunityrelations:
These two official groups are the Staff/Volunteer  run groups that highlight and produce important community happenings, contests, and projects. Although these groups are run by staff members/community volunteers, many of these deviants were formerly senior members or future senior members. (When a CV's term is complete, they are awarded seniority for their effort!) 

Although not a senior-specific group, many active contributors are seniors. This project is awesome and provides countless resources for the community.

Senior Exclusive Forum

In addition to groups, events, and chatrooms dedicated to seniors, seniors also have access to the senior member forum. Here, seniors/cvs/ staff members talk about a wide variety of topics. Sometimes, discussions kickstart new projects!

Although other members cannot view Senior forums, they can still be involved in a ton of other ways!

Helpful Articles Showcase

Did You Know? - Seniority, Work at deviantART Your thoughts on Seniority and CVOld folks and hat stands

Oh no, not another journal about this!

after going through some backlog, I saw Thiefoworld's poll, "Should people be allowed to suggest themselves for seniority?" where he asks for your opinions on whether one should be allowed to suggest themselves for seniority or not. farand had posted a suggestion thread suggesting the reasons for making someone a senior be made publicly available.
What are your thoughts/opinions on these matter?
You can most certainly write your thoughts about it in the poll and/or that specific suggestion, but are also welcome to put your opinions in here additionally if you wish.
Are you doing things just to be a senior?

Seniority Announcement - July 2014
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. 
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out
