Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
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 above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.

Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority in our current round of community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by deviants, Staff and Volunteers.
Our final batch of Seniors for 2013.

FYI, in "Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours", you spelled 'endevours' wrong. The correct spelling is 'endeavour'.

Besides, what does it mean by "being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd"?

I suppose it means that you're just your own unique self? Something a bit different to the mainstream? Of course, how you interpret it is up to you! :paranoid:

I'm sorry for the lameness of my answers. I wish I could tell you what makes people seniors. Apparently, fourteenthstar has said that it's a holistic thing, so it's taking into account everything you've done, rather than just for one specific thing... although FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member? says that some seniors are given it for their artistic endeavours (which is one particular thing, right?)... Have fun! That's what I would say. Just have fun, do what you continue to do, be honest, and respectful, but question people as to their motives, which is treating people honestly and with a sense of dignity

Yes, but nothing happened. I also tried clicking on everything and 'Senior Members' sent me to the recent announcement of the new senior members. Still searching for #85. I guess you would not want a volunteer who cannot even find a FAQ.

I wonder why they don't say exactly what every senior did to become a senior.
Reply
:iconfourteenthstar:
fourteenthstar Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014
Because it's not any one individual thing, it's a combination.
Reply
:iconsabbaticgoat:
SabbaticGoat Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014
I should rephrase that, what I meant is why isn't everything the person has done to become one ever made known to the public and only the staff.

You can view the individual's activity, profile etc - there's no specific formula for becoming a Senior
Reply
:iconidjpanda:
iDJPanda Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014  Student General Artist
That doesn't need to be done really. Just check their profiles. It's pretty easy to see how they earned it.

What $fourteenthstar was saying about the combination is that, they don't get it for one individual action, it's many of them. Read this:

"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 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 above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd."

You can't really put a pin point on how somebody earns seniorship, it's a multitude of factors.

It's an accolade which comes with certain perks. The most notable perk is the ability to use certain Premium benefits without having a premium membership.

There isn't really anything "new" that you would gain as a Senior.

I don't think we've ever compiled a complete list, and I don't think anyone knows all of them.

The only ones I'm certain of are journal skins, ability to admin 10 unofficial groups, profile widgets, and having our own forum.


focusandframe and I tried to compile a list in a forum topic in the Senior forum a while back, but those are the only ones I can remember. ^^; Deviants who've been Seniors for years also added some to the list.

I suppose we could ask Fiona some time. :meow:

As for a list of Seniors, seniorlist used to be very active and spot-on until a few years ago. It seems that whoever had the project just...stopped? :confused:
