This little article of mine actually will help you to improve your Daily Deviation suggestions. First let refresh once the DD suggesting procedure again - which is very simple.
This is very simple: Send a note with headline of DD Suggestion (or something like that). Personally I always check whatever you've sent. But I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to always put the thumbnail. 3D Gallery or any other one, with that way you'll take the GMs attention %100 to the suggestion you've sent. Because we think in pictures, we don't think b-i-r-d, we don't think s-h-i-p-s. When I say a word to you, an image appear in your mind. So when you send a thumbnail which is an image you'll directly appeal to the visual cortex of the brain (Gallery Moderator's brain in this case ).
Also I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to write couple lines about the image. What you think about it, how did you feel looking at it, how it resonates with you, what did you enjoyed on it technically or artistically etc.
So you'll need thumbs to suggest Daily Deviations properly, feature the artwork you like on your journal or your article etc. And they are still there - hidden in a pull down menu right next to the share buttons.
