Hello. There have been confusions. This blog will remain at the top of all blogs. Then there will be no confusion!
:bulletblack: A Linker's week is 7 days long. :B

:bulletblack:  Each MEMBER can share 3 (THREE) Linked deviations per WEEK. You will automatically be notified if you've reached your limit.

:bulletblack:  Share your Linked deviations in the appropriate category by pressing '+' on the bar.

:bulletblack: Your deviations should be LINKED to someone else's (another deviant's) work.

Please keep this in mind:

:bulletred:  Links to your own work are fine, but you must also include a Link (or thumbcode) to at least one of another deviant's work in your
:bulletred:  Links in your comments that credit stock users are not the same as Linking as per The Link System. You must also add a Link (or
     thumbcode) of another deviant's work in your comments as well.
:bulletred:  Gifts and dedications are a very lovely gesture, but they aren't considered Linking as per The Link System. If you wish to submit those to the
     group all you have to do is add one of the gift or dedication recipients work in the comments.
:bulletred:  We do not accept Links that take the viewer off-site.

Thanks for Linking! :thanks:

"A Linker's week is 7 days long"

Do there have to be particular guidelines to the person you link? For example, is the person you're linking have to be someone who shares similar mediums of photography (e.g-landscapes)? Does it have to be another member of this group, or just a friend, or even someone's art you find at random and like and just want to link?

You can Link to whatever your little heart desires. Whatever strikes your fancy. You can Link a landscape photo to a traditional or digital piece, or even to a piece of literature if you like. It's up to you. Your only limitation is that it must be artwork (other than your own) on dA. Easy, yes?

Thanks for already being a super Linker! :iconhugheartplz:

2 questions:

1. Since it doesn't exactly follow the guidelines, are we alright with "ninja linking" (linking without telling the person you're linking to so they get a nice surprise when there's new faves/watchers)?

2. Do we have a folder for artisan crafts that I am failing to see? Lots of awesome craft people out there who I'd love to get some exposure for (ironically found in many cases while trying to price my own works when I started LOL)

hello :)

1. LOVE the phrase! lol 'ninja linking' is just fine. You've helped us see someone else's work too so it's wonderful! NON-ninja Linking just means that the person might look back at your work too. :shrug:

And now that I think about it, it'll make sure he/she finds out about our little idea here! But ninjas are good! Oh so good. lol

2. Miscellaneous
Yes, it's a shame we don't have one dedicated to it. There are oh so many categories which just have to fall under Misc. for now. Volume of input might help make a change in the future though so...Link away and have fun.

Take care. :)

Does the artist need to be from :icondalinksystem:?
TheFulkrum Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2011
YOU have to be a member of course.

But the person you Link TO does not. -)
