deviantART Symbols Explained by mushir deviantART Symbols Explained by mushir
I didn't really know what the symbols meant when I joined here. And the FAQ was helpful, but some of them I didn't understand. So I decided to make this for those in the same boat that I was.

Don't take anything I mention in the explanations seriously. :giggle:

This is funny. LOL Actually I'm a premium subscriber but also poor. Moonbeam13 surprised me with a gift of a 1 year sub then I was able to win some contests during dA's annual birthday bash and extended my sub for another year. ;) Lets hope I can win more subs at dA's next birthday bash otherwise I will miss my sub when it ends.

It changed in October of 2013. People were upset. I personally dislike the new senior "medal", but like all the others.

This was actually very helpful. I've only ever met Members, Premiums, Beta Testers, and one or two Core Members. I guess i'll look out for the others. Thanks, man!

At Senor member, when it says: ...too much time to strangers on the internet...
Does this mean the member spend a lot of time in Deviant art?
Because if this is true, recently, I got a week without school, (because it was the release),including the weekends and all of this week, I was on my computer all of these day.
Because of ~216 hours computer, I got severe insomnia and headaches... I don't recomend to do that.

Whatever, that picture helps me to recognize the symbols next to names.
