Hello Danlev, I really wanted to say I love welcoming new deviants! I really love the new concept. I've been on Deviantart for a year and think its finally time we have notices like this. Thanks for much!

Hi Danlev! 
I know this probably isn't the right place to ask this, but I've tried asking everywhere else and no one will help me. 
I received the "Welcome New Deviants" notice today and I got really excited! When I went back to click on my 3 suggested deviants to welcome, I saw that I accidentally deleted the notice. 
I want to participate VERY badly, so do you know a way that maybe a new notice could be sent to me? Or if I could recover the notice somehow?
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my inquiry. I greatly appreciate it! :D

Hello! So glad to hear you want to participate! 

Unfortunately, that message is automated, so there's no way to manually send it to people, or any way to get it back.

However, if you visit the bottom of the today page, you can find a bunch of new deviants who could use a welcome! :D

Wow, thank you for responding! I'll definitely do that! Being new here can feel like swimming in a glass tank; you can see everything perfectly clear, but you can't reach through and be in it. It's nice to help others feel welcome.
Again, thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question! It means a lot since you're a legend here on DA, haha! :D Have a great one! Ayano Tateyama (Bows) [V12]

I assume you are one of the staff of DA, and ī have a request, can you please, PLEASE, get rid of this person?
I am utterly disgusted, I feel bad for any of the younger deviants, such as myself, if they saw this person
They post gore, porn, and people eating poop, like, I'm so disgusted

Questions for you:

Why was the :dalogo: Login prompt changed (ie: now goes to the separate login page, no longer pops up when you hover)??

And will there be a journal page posted regarding same?

:icondanlev: you see the post below of the :iconevejen:'s immatureness? " commented bullshit about me " here we have another annoying lie and example of " hueheue i dont know what you are talking about " , i didnt comment bullshit at all and i just said GODAMN 4 MONTHS AGO that her art looked bad and didnt deserve 1000 favs , that was all, from that she got so super sensitive that she reported me 1000 times and kept repeating the same thing over and over and made all of her watchers attack me, like i cant believe she hasnt forgot it! how can a person be THIS sensitive? plus " ban evading " thats cause the ban was unworthy , like why the hell ban a person just because they dont like your drawing? immaturest move ever. plus " selling copyrighted images " you can take a look at my profile and the only thing you can see is a weird shot of a spongebob fish , haha wow she really cant take a joke and is gonna get over sensitive over that too? and plus im sorry that evejen keeps spamming you about me, im pretty sure you're really tired about it. :) and plus i didnt come back to deal with this bullshit again.
