When I am looking for people to hire, deviantart is not an option, because I can't search for people by locale.

That would be really helpful, for instance i'm looking for a french-speaking pixel artist for a video game project (the whole team is French, and all of the scenario and communication are in French as well), and i wish i could browse deviant artists per location (thus per language).

Um.. I don't really see the point in this.. I what situation would you need a list of your friends in a specific country? Seems like this is simply a toy and nothing more.

being able to search deviants should've been implemented in the first place. but this is that, but better. :3 hope they do this.

This function would have some interesting aspects to it, if used properly and for, say, "positive" stuff (like making friends, being interested in someone's culture or just trying to see who lives in the same country as you do). Lol, as pointed by some people below, I do see artists of Japan being pressured :) But let's face it, it wouldn't be used in only good manner.

There's plenty of people with political and national issues around (even among the artists). For example, imagine what and artist would suffer, if someone opposing their country politics, history or way of life, would decide to search for them by this and then just leave nasty comments on the page of each (and there's far worse things some people would do).

To give you one example, applied to someone from Germany I happen to know. One member left a comment to on another's profile, saying: "You must be a product of Nazi genetic experiments, to draw that good at your age." I won't even start...even as a joke (and a pretty poor one), it should have never happen.

Point is, addition of this function would have more bad consequences than good ones...even the mere showing of the country on profile sometimes makes problems and sadly some people, artists included, can't give up their prejudices.

Yes! Absolutely yes! I want to do more networking and meeting with people in Israel. So totally YES! Thank you. Please take this to dA HQ with a hostage and tell them to implement it.

This would be cool to have available. One of the best things about the DA community is its international-ness. It would be particularly useful if you were looking to network with artists from a specific country on a project.
