Suggesting dAr DDs
Send a note with "DD suggestion" as a subject to $Moonbeam13 OR `WDWParksGal.
If you'd like to suggest a stamp to be featured as a DD, please refer them to `BurgerBunny.
dA related deviations only.
The deviant shouldn't have received a DD within the last 3 months.
The deviation should have proper credits(if needed) and not use any copyright protected material.
Add a description why you think the deviation deserves a DD. It will make people who might receive it happy.

Guide to the deviantART Related Gallery!
The deviantART Related gallery is broad and confusing when approached with unfamiliar eyes, and so we have decided to make a quick and easy breakdown of the gallery--
with examples! Each section opens with words in italics; these are the official deviantART definitions of the gallery sections and are the first thing you must
consider when submitting to the gallery. The rest of the guide has been written by the dA related GMs, to try and help clarify things some.
