Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say:
  • Feedback regarding the update to the deviation page was positive. 
  • A few deviants mentioned that they were having a hard time locating the deviation stats, and that they actually preferred viewing them beneath the deviation itself.
  • Some deviants mentioned that they were encountering internal server and search errors last week. These issues were handled by dt, and thank you for being vigilant in informing us of the issues.

Since its launch, has been a multi-purpose tool that offers deviants a variety of options when creating, organizing, and submitting artwork. Outside of submission, how do you use Do you share works in progress with friends and other artists? Do you collaborate with other artists by sharing parts of a larger work?

the profile bar being moved over to the right is annoying and when I am skypeing someone the skype call get in the way, and it's just annoying having to have the whole thing split it use to be neat and together and now it's no longer together, at lest give the a choose between both

uh... all the profile tabs stuff is now pushed off to the far right. It's confusing, since i'm used to looking at it from the center. And for some reason all my correspondence says my stuff is deleted, even though my gallery is fine?

My Stash just disappeared. I have been using it for all this time and today there is no arrow or any other thing that even says I have Stash. I am using an old story to get into it by the back door.

I will be writing to the proper people later but this is not fun anymore. I use to really like dA before all these changes.

Remember when home brought you to your page instead of groups? It seems like just yesterday.

I use for...

- Submitting artwork and journals
- Uploading temporary stuff, like dA screenshots (mostly alpha/beta testing)
- Uploading art that must be reviewed (like WIP of a commission)
- Uploading something personal for another deviant

Hey dA, if you'd stop defaulting my layout to your shitty "Full View", that'd be great. 

I picked "Wall of Thumbs View" for a reason...

I honestly don't use as it doesn't seem to offer anything much. Mainly it's the weird object in the corner that collects dust.

I'm not sure if this is important or whatever
[it is to me though]
but, when I'm submitting work my
it doesn't have the option to put
a watermark on my work and I'm just wondering
