CO MUN IT TY
You guys rock, and it goes without saying that the time, effort, creativity and drive from the stock and resources community at large is phenomenal, and you all make that happen!
We've seen a great increase in new members of the community - so welcome to you all!
We've also seen a really good increase in the quality of stock and resources being submitted which is really good for the entire gallery so big thumbs up!
In the mean time whilst you are all being very creative now spring has sprung we are asking for suggestions of how you would like US to help YOU Features? Contest ideas? Off the wall inspiration interviews? More exposure? More/less/different DDs?
Feedback from you is vital to us if we are to continue supporting you in the ways that mean the most to you, but unless you tell us what those ways are, we can't read minds! (Unlike deviantTHOUGHT )
Drop us a line, send a pigeon with a scroll, note us, email us, leave a comment here!!
Yep still happening, your continued patience, understanding of the difficult situation and the sheer volume of submissions we have to try and catch is appreciated. I would like to take a moment to reiterate the fact that we are volunteers, this isn't our "job" and we don't get paid for spending oodles of time on the site. We do this because we know its a big concern for the community at large and we do our best to make a big dent in the problem areas.
Shouting/ranting/flaming at artists because they simply don't understand our stock and resources guidelines or perhaps don't speak English as a first language is never ever (ever ever) going to be ok.
By all means talk to them - in fact we positively encourage you all to get out there and talk to these artists who might be posting images that are not stock or resources, they are still part of our community! A kind word and a little time taken to make sure they understand what the issue might be is a far far better way to help people and improve things. Speak their native language? Even better!! Translation problems can make a simple subject completely confusing, so be a little patient, show a little kindness and give our big big community some love
Sub Category alterations
We've had 2 recent changes to our gigantic category tree which should hopefully clear up a few confusing issues
Line art & Character Templateswww.deviantart.com/resources/l… Has been RENAMED
There has been for some time now huge confusion about where artists should be posting their character designs and this sub cat ended up collecting them all which is no good when the vast majority aren't designed for other artists to use. To be completely clear -
Personal/unique character creations or character stat sheets should NOT be posted to lineart and character templates. They are purely artwork and need to be posted to the most appropriate traditional or digital art category.
BLANK/EMPTY character sheets FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO USE AND FILL OUT should be placed in the line art & character templates sub category.
If you have unique character designs in this sub cat they will be earmarked for being moved, we are more than happy to help you move your own if you have a lot, just drop any one of us a note and we'll get them moved for you.
On the same note ADOPTABLE art/characters should be placed in the deviantart related/devious fun/adoptables www.deviantart.com/darelated/d… category NOT into the line art & character templates resources gallery!
Literature Templateswww.deviantart.com/resources/l… Has been CLOSED for further submissions. This sub category has for a long time been superseded by the stock images/premade backgrounds sub category which essentially does the same job.
Anybody currently trying to look for literature templates would be hard pressed to find any valid submissions in the past 12 months and the majority of the submissions in there are miscatted literature pieces which will be moved to a more appropriate literature gallery over the next few months.
Once this sub category is empty it will be removed from the category tree. So any future literature templates/backgrounds can be posted to stock images/premade backgrounds www.deviantart.com/resources/s…

REMINDER - we need your suggestions!! Without suggestions from you, the community, great stock and resources can easily be missed by our 3 pairs of eyes, so please keep on sending suggestions to us! Don't be put off or concerned about sending us lots and lots, we like spam from you all
Even if your suggestions are not always given a daily deviation all 3 of us regularly feature stock and resources in news articles and feature articles so theres a very good chance the stuff you suggest to us will get exposure in other ways!

Daily Devation Suggestion RemindersHiya Darlings,
Today I'd like to send out a reminder for what I look for in a Daily Deviation suggestion. We've all seen the classic DD comment about how so-and-so does great work, but they never get featured. Well, there's a very easy solution to that problem. Suggest them! There are just a few things that you need to consider before sending me or the other Stock & Resources CVs a Daily Deviation Suggestion.
What type of stuff do you feature?
- I can only feature submissions listed under the Resources & Stock category of deviantART. For all other categories, please check out this handy guide:
Have they been featured with a Daily Deviation within the last six months?
- This is a very easy thing to check out. The way I do it when I'm checking to see if they've had one in the last six months is by ad

Inspirational Stock and Thank You FeatureI started this account a year ago, with no clear idea of what being a stock provider entailed or just how much work goes into making and providing stock. This is to say thank you to my fellow stockers for all your hard work and support, answering my questions, promoting newbies like myself and sharing your wonderful resources

News from Stock and ResourcesLine-art & Character Templates Gallery
The Line-art & Character Sheets gallery has been renamed to "Line-art & Character Templates" in hopes of less confusion going on there. The gallery is meant for line-art (there seems to be no problem with this) and the less-understood item called a character sheet template. These are character sheets that have NOT been filled out yet, and are available for others to use.
Pre-filled character sheets need to be placed in Digital Art, or wherever is appropriate. As a reminder, please only place resources for others to use into the Resources & Stock Images gallery. We are putting some extra focus into this sub-gallery to get it nice and shiny!
If you need help moving your filled-in character sheets out of the stock gallery, give one of us a holler
