10 Years!

Thu Jan 22, 2015, 12:26 PM


As per tradition, I forgot about my anniversary of working at DeviantArt. :slow: Luckily good guy Ikue has been at it for 5 years as of last weekend, and I for 10 years as of this Monday. Oddly enough I realized that anniversary closeness only now. :lol:

In hindsight, those 10 years flew by, but 10 years are 10 years and that's a lot of time. Looking back, I'm glad I joined DA when it was only 3 years old and was asked to join the staff when it was barely 5 years old. :wow:

For a little back story, back then I was very active in the old Prints forum as a regular deviant, and one fine day lolly (who was on the Prints team back then) asked me if I wanted to work for DeviantArt in a print related capacity (% quality control!) and that was that. That was my role for a few years and then transitioned over to what we now know as the Community Operations team as a help desk person, primarily. :aww:
I've got very close to 80,000 tickets under my belt!
It feels good to help people with this massive greengray beast, even after such long time.

To sum up the last 10 years in short, it's been a sometimes wild period of constant change and refreshing new insights. Being at DA is a unique experience, especially for this long, and I'm thankful for it.
I'm most grateful for all the people I got to know and the amazing close friends I've met over the years.
:thanks:

Hey Oliver, are you one of the developers or staff? Could you tell dA admins about any new suggestions that we might have to improve dA ease of use/visual style?
