Individual members can also organize their own deviations into folders, allowing further organization on their personal pages. These personal member pages, or profiles, show a member’s personally uploaded deviations and journal postings.Journals are like a personal blog accompanying a member’s profile page, and topic coverage is up to the member; some use it to talk of their personal or art-related lives, others use it to spread awareness or marshal support for a cause.Also displayed are a member’s “favourites”, or collection of other users’ images from deviantArt, which the member can save to a folder of its own. Another thing to be found on the profile page is a member’s “watchers”; a member may add another member to their “watch list” in order to be notified when that member uploads something.The watcher notifications are gathered with other notices in a member’s Message Center, other notices being when other users comment on that member’s deviations, or when the member receives favorites.
In order to communicate on a more private level, “Notes” can be sent between individual members, similar to an email within the site.Other opportunities for communication among members are deviantArt’s forums and chatrooms; chatrooms being for group instant messaging, and forums being for more structured, long-term discussions.
