of course this must have gotten an dd. <3 cause I am talking to random people and say always say the same.
for phototours it sometimes can be helpful to locate people via locationfinder. <3

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.

for you maybe !! but i would love to meet artists from my country or even my town to share exprience and just kick back and talk about art or perhaps i might do a freelance work with them in real life..this idea has many uses ..it depends on what you want or need

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.

I don't quite see the point. If this is only for those you watch and your friends then you should already have an idea where they come from from talking to them, visiting their page, etc. I agree with what others have said about it being easily spammable, and it wouldn't work too well considering a lot of people hide their location. Even if people don't hide their location, likely not everyone would like having it show up in a search.

I don't much see the point, since many people hide their locations and there are a TON of members. Maybe if this was part of a larger search engine, but I don't want people looking up Japan and then spamming me with "omg konnichiwa luv Japan!!!" I get that sometimes, it's not so fun.

But I have wanted something I could search for users with, just not necessarily location. City, maybe, but then we'd all have to write that down somewhere. DA only asks about country, I think.

Most people who live in Japan use Pixiv.net or Tegaki rather than deviantart.

I live in Japan and use DA. I also use Pixiv but Pixiv doesn't encourage discussions or let you make changes to an image.
