All right, the time has come, the winners of the Deviant of the Year Awards are to be announced.

First off, a congratulations to everyone that was nominated, you all deserve a round of applause and a pat on the back for getting this far. Secondly, a thank you to everyone that nominated and voted, you are what made this what it is.

And here, we announce, those who you have voted as your Deviants of the Year for 2006:

Best New Deviant - GH-MoNGo (Prize: ODD feature from oibyrd +3 month sub donated by timmy64)

Congratulations to the winners, you all deserve to have received this commendation for your services to the site.

And now, as the Deviant of the Year Awards 2006 draw to a close, I suppose it may be customary to just thank everybody who made this possible. A big thank you needs to go out to TastyOne for helping me develop the concept, also to thank in that respect is Step-Into-Liquid-516 for helping to narrow down the categories to an economically viable list. Also, thanks must go to junoknight for trying to badger lolly for admin support. Thanks to Moonbeam13 for correcting the typo in our Nominations article. Also, a huge thanks to junoknight, Tepara, Azildin and cloude, all of whom kept me sane while I counted the nominations and the votes. Thanks go out to all those who nominated, and all those who voted. While your deviant may not have been picked, I like to believe you made some kind of a difference all the same. Special mention must go to the few who would wish to defy the rules and try to nominate themselves. You certainly did give me a laugh in your creativity in trying to sell yourselves. In closing, I would like to thank the sponsors, those who nominated and voted, and everyone who supported us. It's been a wonderful experience, and I hope to see you all again later this year of DOTY 2007.
Thanks a million, it's been great.
timmy64 - Founder of Deviant of the Year Awards.

Note: We will be taking suggestions on how we may improve the awards for 2007, so if you have any ideas, note this account.

* Prizes from oibyrd may be significantly delayed as she is experiencing a backlog from previous large projects, Minor delays may be expected from other sponsors.

Congrats to the winners... single person I would have supported would I have been able to vote(being in vacation), would have been jark.I am really curious to see the criteria used to pick the persons eligible to public voting.Disappointing anyways.Best artist would have been more relevant... best signature ? best in chat ? it's childish to say at least,if not hillarious.Remember that this is a art community and not a damn internet cafe or some kind of comic tv show.dA is going down the drain and I'm enjoying the view. :salute:

Childish? I fail to see how one's contributions to this site being recognized by these (albeit unofficial) awards can be called "childish". There's more to being a Deviant than just having artistic proficiency.

Well then you're looking at these awards in the wrong way. dA isn't an art competition. It's not a competition in general anyway. And since art is so subjective, it wouldn't be fair to try and determine who is the "best" just for the sake of doing so.

I don't believe the term "deviant" has lost its meaning. To me, being a deviant means being a part of this great community.

Hey, now that's not very nice of you. From your other messages you sent between my club *Black-White-Club account and myself. My views on what you were trying to say had changed. But in this comment you are insulting an artist.
That is just low and uncalled for.

First Ill just remind you I am not the founder of this club. "Since you offered jark that prize (which i fully agree with)," Gives me the impression that you think I am. So Ill just get that clear from the start :aww:
I have talked to Scott. A few times to be correct. I also talk to his mother. On and off the Internet. (not that, that has anything to do with this :aww: )
You are going way off track here. Don't compare DA with Myspace hun. That's just not cool :no:
Da being or not being like DA has nothing to do with DOTY.
DOTY was intended to be a fun thing, something to get the community together. To be friendly.
Not bitch and moan about this and that.
No matter what. There is no way that everyone can be pleased.
All that we can really do is hold our heads high, support each other as a whole community.
I would comment on the "pics of me and dog" etc. because I totally understand what you are getting at. But this has nothing to do with DOTY, so I will stay clear of that.
wonders off to read the note you sent me

You claim we stole your idea and diverted attention from your "original"*. Your article looking for what can best be described as "Nominees" was posted around November 1st. Our article asking for nominees was posted December 1st. You had an entire month over us in which you could have been receiving nominations.

That causes myself and others to conclude that while the ideas of the two projects were similar, there were large differences between them (and yes, I would say this if the shoe was on the other foot), and that this project is not just a carbon copy of yours.

*NB: This sort of idea has been used for awards shows for years

in our defense, i'll repeat what he said before. this has been in the planning since june of last year... and all of our selections for categories and our nominee system was hammered out back in september! So how dare you accuse us, it's just a massive coincidence that you ended up with yours a month before ours went public! i'm sorry that you feel we "robbed" you, but we used september-december for driving our roots into the community, then advertising through them. maybe that's where we differed... if you were relying solely on your own popularity, then yeah i don't see why you would get more than 2 notes total...

If its a "inner circle" Its a huge circle then!
If you had taken the time to pay attention to everything that went on with it, maybe you wouldn't be so nimble minded.
1000's of people voted. You think everyone knew everyone else??
I was one of the ones that was "to be" voted for . I knew maybe 8 other people there where up for votes. Does this make me part of this "inner circle" ? Out of the people that won something. I think I knew about 4 of them. Does that also mean because I knew them ( even if I may or may not have voted for them) that I'm apart of this "inner circle" ?
yesss we are all part of this inner circle, and we plain to take over the whole of DA by eating there brains out by sucking them up through there ears, then licking the brain juice up.
of course at the same time playing thumb wrestling..
watch your back. we are after you next :roll:

Also how is it not about "art"?
lets see.
Staff: work here keeping the art under control. If it wasn't for them, there would be no art.

dAmn: is a place where people go not only to chat about random things, but it is also a place where people go to show their art, get advise on their art. To get help with DA, to talk about art.

Forums: people go there asking for advise on here art, advertising there art. thumb-share and printthumbshare get help with the site its self. Get to know other artists. Offer jobs for people.

there are millions of people here on devART, how come not more than a couple of thousand ever went to the page to vote? because it is a circle of few, in all fairness it shoulda been a public vote sent out to all deviants, and you would'a gotten half a million votes!!!!!!!
"1000's of people voted" yep, tiny little clique :D

1000 notes was an example. :roll:
It was known to just about everyone on DA. Have you been under a rock or something?
You have been a member of DA for just about 2 years. And looking at how active you are, no wonder you didn't know anyone on the lists... The nominating was December 2nd-31st its just about Feb now. IT was advertised on so many journals Ive lost count. Its was in the news adverting it and for people to get there votes in.
voting was January 2nd to 16th . Again was advertised in a tank load of journals. including many admin. ( and 1000's of people watch admin ) again was advertised to get votes in, in the news.
Then this one showing who the winners are!

Publicity was always an issue with this going ahead, now with our lack of admin support, we were unable to notify all three million deviants by going into their inboxes in the form of a Hot Topic, but there were news articles, people mentioning us in journals, there was every opportunity for everyone to participate, but let's be serious here. Out of three million accounts on this site, how many actually look at news?

I never heard of this til I came across a journal AFTER it was done...None of the Deviants I watch had it up, and I have ALOT. Next time I suggest the front page or a seperate advertisement on or near the header, gets more attention there during voting times or nearing time. :D friendly suggestion.

Well, to be entirely honest, adCast is expensive, but we are looking at taking out a package next time. But as you may notice, we rely on donations of others to provide prizes etc. Your best option is to read the news, the Nominations article was on the News Front Page for three days minimum.

yeah... but it's US who make the community,not admins,not all of that crap,just try to keep that in mind next time.And besides it's a ART community,not a reading exercise for who has the best signatures or who kissed most a$$ on an open channel.And no I'm not trying to be anti-social,but this is not rewarding artists in any way possible or impossible.In case you forgot,artists pay up so that those admins have a job,artists pay so that they HAVE a site to maintain in the first place.I think it's rude to say at least,not to give THEM any credit for that,and instead throw up some prizez to oher people who don't really need them or who don't deserve that much credit for what they did.I know a lot of peope out there,like me who really can't afford a subscription and who could really use it.I'm no sore looser in case you would have thought about that,I really couldn't care less if i was nominated or not,because I'm here to represent myself as a person and not necessarily make money out of it.Art is pleasure too, but the way things keep going around here, it's becoming more of a industry than something that actually holds some substance and deeper meaning.Oh and,if you don't accept any critics how the hell are you supposed to become better ? by having an army of yes-men ? And no this is no destructive criticism,it's the cold,harsh truth I'm talking about here.And yeah,truth sometimes doesn't sound so rosy as lies,but at least appreciate it and draw some conclusions on your own.

I think maybe, you have misunderstood the meaning behind DOTY? because everything you said you wanted. Is what this is all about.
This isn't about kissing someones arse.
Its about seeing who the people of DA ( not the admin. Admin had nothing at all to do with this ) think has most improved in there art. This may be in the forums, in dAmn, all over DA :aww:
Its not about who knows who and who doesn't.
If you took the time to have a look at the people that got somewhere. You may understand why they got it?
I'm not saying a lot of people are arse kissers. You are correct in saying that. But that is not what DOTY is all about. It was trying to push people away from arse kissing. To let them know that people people on DA are here because of their love for art. Not to kiss the right arses to get somewhere :aww:

very well,you are saying you wanted the deviant prize FOR deviants.... no problem ! could you show me 1 single unsubscribed person who won the prize ? How much do you really care about the rest of the site who is lurking somewhere 'round nowhere ? Deviant art's society is stratified like this: topmost layers - admins, then come the mods and ops,then come betas then come subscribers and then comes then so-called "slum" of dA who really makes up for the masses.Well excuse me for beeing so undemocratic to suggest you pick at least 1 (ONE) deviant from each cathegory.... you don't even have the slightest ideea how many great artist battle with the ignorance of the upper layerd ones, the fact that they are given no attention whatsoever,and how many of them struggle to impove each day and night on their own ! Tell me those guys don't deserve an award and I'll tell you you can go straight to hell for all I care.

and another thing I wanted to ask you is,pray tell me what does best signature and best chatter have to do with improving yourself as an artist ? Why not make cathegories like Best digital artist,best litertature,best traditional and so on ? with prizen from 1 to 3 for each cathegory ? Does it really sound THAT crazy and illogical for a community that "upholds", "protects" and "serves" artists ?

I'm sorry ... but it's rather unfair that you're judging people based on their subscription... but it has nothing to do with that. They didn't choose by the subscriber status, it just happens that the community people that won the awards are giving enough to buy a subscription. It has no bearing on whether or not they won... they won solely on their spirit. Why are you so upset about this? I'm just curious. It's not like we attacked you in any way shape or form... why attack us?

If you look at my username Im a club :nana: ( I realised after I pressed send I was still under my club name lol sorry about that) So no I didnt want it for myself at ALL.
They have been given the subs. So of course it shows as a = or a * now. But Ill humer you and show you anyway.
=truemarmalade had less then a month , so it was about to run out.
*GH-MoNGo was the same

Also about 4 people who where up for votes had no subs. So no not all people had a sub already.
Also some of the people that did have a sub before the winners were anounsed. When people noticed them in in DOTY they looked at the art from them, and brought them a sub. So yes some did have one already. For that reason only.

"How much do you really care about the rest of the site who is lurking somewhere 'round nowhere ? "
Hmm let me see. Go have a look at my main account =Tepara You will see I am very active in DA. I have this club. Which I mod by myself. To help advertise the art they have.
Im active in forums and dAmn ( not as of late though as I have been very busy )
My journals in my main account feature the unknown devs all the time. To help them get better known so their art is seen more.
My prints I sell, ALL the profits go right back into DA Ive brought people subs. Ive brought them prints. If I was able to do more trust me I would.
This also goes for my stock account. I feature art in my journals in there to ( stock art that is )
I also welcome at lest 100 new members to DA just about every day.
Wish people a happy birthday every day, ( normally about 20-30 a day ) if they are in the DA birthday list. Otherwise I have no way of knowing its their birthday.

We all start at the bottom hun. This little DOTY is for everyone. Not admin, not members/beta testers. not the "slum" as you put it. But ALL of them. It were people just like you and I, that voted for who they thought desurved the awards. You cant say it wasnt fair when EVERYONE who had the choice of who they voted for.
About the "I have no idea what its like for the unknown artists" read above I think that says it all.
Im all for getting those pople better known and out there showing what DA as a whole has to offer.
I do all Im able to do to get those artists out there.

This DOTY was for a little fun. this like best siggy/AVA/forum,dAmn was a little fun.
But in saying that dAmn forums and siggys are a way artists get them selves known. a way to advertise their art. So yes it does have to do with being an artist. A lot of people in DA got the attation in there art is because of the adverting in all of those.
Also if you have suggestions DOTY is always happy for your suggestions.
It welcomes them :aww: So send a note to ~deviantoftheyear and give your suggestions to improve it :D Look at that ~deviantoftheyear doesnt even have a sub.. Does that make them Unworthy? one of the "scum" or what ever it was you called none paying members?

the funny thing is you didn't understand me at all... as I was talking about slum,it was a figure of speech,mind to tell you that I too am part of that society level so-to-speak.The guys up there avoid to resond to notes/messages or any means of communication here.And many times all you want to say is you admire them and look up to them.Me,as one don't need a sub,as I would have gadly transfered it to someone that really needed it.not to mention the fact that I am part of huge site because I just want to get better...It's very depressing to see the little attention given to advancement in artistic issues here.And as I was saying that about da,I was not accusing you for wanting the awards for yourself (would be the lowest anyone could go) but I suspected that theese awards were manipulated in some way,as I didn't see any regular user.I understand it was for fun,well then it served it's purpouse right i think.Yet if this is such a big event why didn't it get any upper support at all ? It's as much disturbing as it is unfair. As much dismay as you may feel towards me,know that I too wanted every time with every opportunity i got to help the wonderfull people around me that make this site worthwile... I even tried to start a magazine for the unknown artists of dA,but I got stuck because of diverse problems... nobody wanted to help,as much as I tried to advertise that ideea.I gave up fighting for anyone... including myself.

I did understand you :aww: I just have a way of putting in a way that it come across to everyone else that happens to be reading it :nana:
Im glad you are here for all the right reasons. As I suggested in my last comment to you.
Insteed of telling me about your suggesting for DOTY send ~deviantoftheyear a note with your suggestions. I know for a fact that ~deviantoftheyear will be more then pleased with your suggestions. There is always room for improvment . But bitching and complaining about something, doesnt get the job done. ( not acusing you of doing that of course :aww: ) So send them a note give them feedback, have your say give the suggestions. If you dont send them a note with your suggestions. How are they meant to improve.

Keep in mind admin get soooo many notes and messages every day, they cant reply to all comment and notes. It can also take a while for them to get though the notes and read them.
I ( under my main account) sent a note to an admin member about 7 months ago. Id forgotten all about it lol.. then a few weeks ago I got a reply. I was rather surprised, but in a good way :D
So it may take a while for them to reply. But they are only one person. They cant be everywhere all at once.
Have a little faith, Im sure if they can they will get to it as soon as posable :aww:

Sorry about your little project . Im sure with the help it would have been a fine mag :aww:

I was not necessarily talking about staff here.I was stating a fact that the criteria used to pick the "random" deviants who got the awards is not so fair after all,and has nothing to do with artistic values, artistic skill or any art-related issues.Pray tell me what does a good signature have to do with producing a quality painting that inspires ? Or how does the way some dude relate bugs have to do with the further developement of ones artistic skills ? could you please explain it to me ? maybe you should read a bit here: [link] I think we should talk afterwards. I'd like to say one more thing: as long as there is no interest for substance in art,but only material issues,art will die.Slow but sure.

It's a circle so to speak, without staff, there is no site, without the community, there's nothing for the staff to do.

This is supposed to recognise people for contributions to the COMMUNITY at large, not just the art.
