This live featured chat will happen on Tuesday, July 19th, 2011, 1:30pm to 2:30pm PST. (Click here for your local time.)




The event will take place on our Chat Network in the #Auditorium chatroom.


New to the Chat Network?

In order to access our Chat Network you must have a deviantART account which you can sign up for FREE here. To join the featured chat simply login to deviantART and click the chatroom link above. You will also be able to find the #Auditorium Chatroom listed on the main chat page 15 minutes prior to the start of the event.

How will the Featured Chat work?

We may have a pre-selected geeky panel of deviants that will be the main source of questions (I'll know more soon), but there will be some opportunity for anyone to ask a question (see below).  As always, the rest of the audience will be muted so that they may enjoy the event without disruption.


How do I ask a question?


If you want an opportunity to ask a question during the event, you will need to reply to this news article with one question you want to ask.

If your question is chosen as a qualifying question you will be contacted via note, and then during the event be placed in a queue of other qualifying deviants. During the event, you will then be called upon to ask your chosen question.

Note that the number of deviants chosen will entirely depend on the quality of questions and the time available during the chat.  Please have your question prepared and ready to post when you are called upon to get as many questions in as we can.

Is it cuz' the chat is OVER or is it because I am BANNED?

Your banned :/ Some MN-Admin killed (which is what comes up when your banned) contact the [link] and file it under "Chatroom/Forum Inquiry" and generally you'll get tachy-on (He's the only person I've seen there for Chatroom/Forum)You should've gotten a note as to being banned from some MN-@dmin.

Or it may be that they put the entry level position so you can't join it.

I'm not a MN-Admin so I really can't say just my best guesses ^^;

How do you keep the communication between the web coders and the site designers to make sure the end results becomes the wanted end product?

Hi, I was wondering if you are working on a App for ipod/ipad and all those other i's out there, making it possible to log in and browse, chat, comment and all the neat DA stuff we love and adore? <3

Here's my question, and it concerns DA Muro:
When I upload an image as a layer, only a certain portion of the image will show up on the canvas because the image I work with is too large to fit on it. In the future will you guys make a feature for DA Muro to adjust the canvas size?

My question is simple:

The deviantArt Messaging System is prone to frequent unknown stops. Why hasn't it simply been taken offline and upgraded?

Ok, my question(…s, but connected) — what's the stack now in the shop, besides MySQL, PHP (are you 5.3 now?), and lots of JavaScript magic? Do you have some NoSQL dwarves there (memcache — checked, but… Mongo, anyone?), Clojures flying on JVM, nodejs riding Pythons with Rubys on Rails, or other bleeding edge stuff extracted from GitHub bottomless pits?

Bonus question: Do you plan to opensource some of your code? (eg. datex lib, or sth else)

Anyway — thanks for the good work youre doing, #dt! :ahoy:

I doubt this will get picked, but in light of the very chat network you're going to be using for this event hiccuping, knocking all the users offline, twice within an half hour of HQ blogging about this event [link] I have to ask. What's the deal with the chat network, why does it go offline so often, when the rest of the site doesn't, what's with all the glitches?

Awesome, I'll be there.

Question: How does the creative team integrate with the actual coders? Like, are they the same people, or do some staff come up with ideas/designs and then other staff are their slaves and write down a whole bunch of code? :D What exactly is the dynamic there?

I have another question :noes: But I see you haven't received many yet... so I hope that's ok? ^^;
How does the #dt team work together with #ui?
