* On April 1, 2015, DA ran an April Fools joke called [[http://madizzlee.deviantart.com/journal/Introducing-the-DeviantArt-Stylus-IRL-522916949?utm_source=deviantart&utm_medium=header&utm_campaign=040115_MKT_StylusIRL Stylus IRL,]] the joke being that it was a glorified ink pen with the ability to change the color of the ink. Despite the fact that most people quickly figured out it was a joke, they ''still'' [[MisaimedFandom thought it was a cool idea regardless, and would have actually liked to have had a real version of it.]]
** Their April fools jokes manage to be rather hilarious, though they've been gradually toning them down since the year where they ended up taking it way too far in most of the sites opinion. What did they do that resulted in a massive collective DudeNotFunny from the site at large? ... Well, one year, the staff forcefully replaced everyone's avatars with either [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Team Jacob or Team Edward avatars]], with some Music/LadyGaga avatars thrown in, for the entire day, with no way to change them. The resulting ''huge'' InternetBackdraft due to Twilight's ''immense'' {{Hatedom}} on the site had to have been seen to be believed. As a result, the admins have never done anything like that on any future April Fools days since.
*** Before ''that'', they've replaced everyone's avatars in 2008 with one based on [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Mudkip]] (based on the infamous meme), and people could not change it back during that time. (If anyone went to the settings page that allowed deviants to change their avatars, they would notice that the button was removed with a message in bold, blue Comic Sans saying "u dont liek mudkipz?") It too had an InternetBackdraft; the hatred was so big that the site prematurely ended the joke well before the day was over. It was this incident that helped the meme to eventually become {{discredited|Meme}}.
** For 2018, they set up fake advertising for supposed original shows and movies for the site. Some of it was actually fairly believable as shows, like a reality show focused on competing digital artists or an animation or two, but with some obvious nods to its non-existence, like one of the animated "shows" being called [[Anime/YuriOnIce Yaoi on Fire.]]
* The Complaints Forum, which over the years has earned a reputation as the WretchedHive of the website's forums; with a high population of obvious trolls and regulars who take nothing (including [[SelfDeprecation their own threads]]) seriously, Complaints is now (in)famous for a culture of [[DeadpanSnarker Deadpan Snakerkers]], to the point that the website now has an official post warning newcomers to "lurk" before attempting to participate in the Complaints Forum.
* The Politics Forum has become notorious for racists, homophobes, and other bigots, but the responses some of the more sane members offer these loons is often priceless, and tend to double as [[CrowningMomentofAwesome Crowning Moments of Awesome.]]
