Titles are part of ARTWORKS by Yoberog Titles are part of ARTWORKS by Yoberog

Titles are part of ARTWORKS, but deviantArt don't allow to use certain characters and symbols in our deviations' titles.

Nowadays, dA is universal. People from any country, from any culture, speakers of any language. We are represented here. We like art and we like to interact with people with similar interests; for them to know us, to learn, but specially to show our soul in a drawing, in a photograph, in a writing... To put a title to our artworks is an artistic activity too; you can show your intention, insinuate something hidden or play with perceptions. The title is part of our artwork and must be created in freedom; in our language if we consider it necessary or in any other one if we wish to play with the spectator's or reader's perception. It's never a minor matter.

This one is a request very commonly, but deviantArt prefers spend efforts and money in other things of more importance for the international art community as the llamas badges...

The aim of our group is to ask deviantArt, on behalf of all, to use Unicode standard instead of US-ASCII, so that the whole community can title their works in any language, without restrictions, for cultural respect and on behalf of freedom artistic and creative. This is a website of Art, it is not a minor problem.

We are demanding deviantArt's greatest effort to have its technical staff work in making better this our (everybody's) site. We want them to understand that, even though English is our language for cultural exchange, a site for Art cannot be limited by English, for this is not simply a social network. In our individual doing, we do not think in English. Our creativity cannot be limited by English; titles are indeed important.

Thanks :handshake:

I'm ON

I'm still sore that I had to write Võro Miis Lätsi Sõtta as Voro Miis Latsi Sotta...

Not to mention I'm also completely fluent in Russian and I can't write even one Cyrillic letter in my titles.

As a French artist, I demand my accents!

It's strange. For some reason I do see people putting things like the question mark on their deviation's title but when I try it doesn't let me.

it's strange... :? I have deviations with a "?" in the title too.
This are the symbols that can be used:
_ ' " + . , $ ? : -

The rest are "forbbiden", like
! & % ( ) = < > ] [ etc...
