How to Create and Manage a dA Group by Birdie121 How to Create and Manage a dA Group by Birdie121
I founded a group on dA (AnimeArtAppreciation) over two years ago, and I have always been its sole administrator. I've discovered a lot of tricks and methods that I find very useful in running my group. I wanted to share that advice with anyone who is managing a group or wants to create one.

This is just my personal opinion. I do not claim that my way is the only way. But this is what I've found that works. :)

If you have any questions, please ask!

OMFGGGGG!!!!!! I was wondering how the heck I suddenly had so many favorites for this, and then I saw the comments! I literally burst into tears. Seriously. Thank you so much for the DD!

And thanks especially to ginkgografix for suggesting it and to CelticStrm-Stock for featuring it!! :heart:

Okay but do you need to be a member to make one?

I think if you don't have the premium membership, there's a limit to the number of groups you can make. But you should still be able to make a group without a paid membership :)

Next to the search-bar at the top of the page is the option "more." Hover the mouse over that, and select "groups." Then on the upper right-hand part of the screen you will see "Make a Group."

Hope that helps! Good luck with your group! :)

wait... but how do you actually create it on deviantart?
Reply
:iconbirdie121:
Birdie121 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
1. Look at upper left corner of the page, where you see the dA logo and "deviantART."
2. Hover mouse over drop arrow next to that.
3. Select "Groups"
4. On the group page, on the upper right, it will say "make a group" or something like that. :)

Hope that helps!

Go to the upper-left corner of the page, where the dA logo and name are. Click the drop arrow. Select "groups". On the page of groups, there is an icon in the upper-right corner that says "make a group" :)

Wow your suggestion for inviting to members by going through new art is genius!  I have been stalled at 70 members, trying to get to 100, and that is such a great idea!  Thanks!
