Titles are part of ARTWORKS by Yoberog Titles are part of ARTWORKS by Yoberog
:iconallcultures:


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.

If you care about this issue or want to join us, please, visit #AllCultures

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.

I WANT MY TITLES!!!!

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...

even i can understand this (and i'm usually not so bright)
i kind of noticed that deviantart doesn't let us use some letters..
i mean, in german ä, ü and ö are offical letters (or something) and are even on my Keybord, but i wasn't allowed to use them in titles, i had to write for them ae, ue and oe.. and that is stupid.. :(
i really wished that dA would change this

Yes, is a common request from a lot of users since many years, but deviantArt is "deaf" about this issue. :(
You are welcome to visit #devallcultures for more information about this. Thanks for comment :handshake:

I have a suggestion to your suggestion; use your artist's comments to explain why it is needed rather than to pimp groups or talk bad about the staff? :) They look through the suggestions gallery, and if you give them the impression you're just trying to spread hate or pimp your group, instead of making a serious suggestion, that won't make them like you or your suggestion more. ^^;

Yoberog Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2011
Serious suggestions? [link]
here is one i made in year 2009: [link]
And other in 2010:[link]

The last one was closed in 15 minutes because, as i say in "artist comment", dA staff consider it as "common suggestion".
Since before 2009 to 2011 deviantArt do NOTHING for a very important issue on to the international community like allow of UNICODE simbols in dev titles, but prefer expend effors in other things more "urgent" for the community like llamas badges.

Please, visit our group, there is more information and better explained.

Thanks for your comment. :handshake:

Yes, but I was refering to this deviation since you put it in the deviantART suggestions category :) the admins browse deviations in this category, and if they see many people suggesting this, they may do something about it. But if you make yourself come across as if you're trying to pimp a group or just to complain, then they are less likely to do so. Does that make sense? :)

I see, but I was refering to your artist's comments themselves :D

Anytime :hug:

Exactly! It's about freedom, freedom to entitle our artwork with only parenthesys, dots, comas or whatever we want, not only letters.
