I've seen this question countless times now. And I decided to answer it
Core Member ( formerly Premium Member) 'til Hell freezes over......
Basically it means that the owner of the account (deviant) has the perks of being a Core Member
until forever, but that is only for Volunteers and Staff Members.
Some time ago, deviantART made it possible that you can buy the status for yourself
, and it lasts for 7 years
.So who receives it?
Staff Members , Volunteers (and those who bought the status!
, after their term is over or they step down from their positions, they become Senior Members. Their 'til Hell Freezes over Premium Membership doesn't go away.Why?
Becasue they work and worked really hard for the Community and deviantART.
And don't you
