What's New


Autocomplete for Mentions


We've just launched an addition to the Mentions feature that makes interaction easier than ever!

When using @ to Mention a deviant or Group, a list will now appear in a menu while you type that includes deviants and Groups you +Watch, deviants who have already commented in the conversation, as well as deviants who have the exact username that you have already typed in, if applicable. This addition makes conversation more dynamic than ever, as communication becomes even easier.

Please note that this feature is only available on places where the "Add Media" button is available (comments, deviation descriptions, Journals, etc.).

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback left on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us.
  • Deviants were positive in response to Autocomplete being launched to Beta Testers.
  • Feedback regarding the Discuss topic varied. Several deviants mentioned that they like the Gallery Stats page, but that they would like more filters to view stats in.
  • Rakceyen and rotane suggested that being able to view more specific timeframes for stats would make data more valuable to them. TarynNefdt mentioned that tracking referring websites would be helpful, and SenshiStock suggested a tracking method to see what deviants search for in one's Gallery.
  • Deviants would like a Sta.sh Writer option in the Submit menu. Suggested by Shadowweb101
  • Some deviants would like to be able to see a deviant's most recent deviation by hovering over their username while browsing the site. Suggested by Ichigo-Smoothie

Sure would be nice to have an arrange submissions by newest to oldest in the FEATURED folder instead of just being in the other folders. I am getting really tired of having to manually rearange things...

Having A LOT OF PROBLEMS with autocomplete. Every time that I press "Enter" to make a new paragraph, it wants me to tag people! Every time! But there's no one to tag! And, when I do tag someone, every time I hit "Enter" it's asking me to tag that person AGAIN! This is so messy and, while it works, it CONSTANTLY wants me to tag people even though I don't need/want to tag anyone in my journal!

This is completely off topic, but can I suggest something for a page widget?

You know how a ton of deviants have "stamp" and icon collections? Can there be a Stamp Box or something page widget that lets you re-arrange (and add/remove) icons and stamps without the thumbnail codes? That'd be awesome, 'cause it's a pain to have to work with those codes all the time :P

I'm wondering is there any way to quickly bring all deviations back to Featured section of the gallery? And arrange them from newest to oldest like in folders?
Reply
:iconwreckling:
wreckling Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013   Writer
As far as I'm aware, there's no quick way to arrange Featured by Newest to Oldest, but if you want to move several deviations into the Featured folder, you can select "All" from your Gallery page, then click and drag to create a selection field for multiple deviations. Once you've done that, you can hover over a thumb and click on the pencil button, then select "Copy to", and then select "Featured". I hope that helps! :)

Well, I actually agree "mentions" are useful for features and such but... hasn't anyone thought it can lead to trouble between users due to some gossiping about others?

No offense but I do not like the preview button, because I worked hard last night on a map of North America for a alternate history for a group I am in. And it keeps saying "GIF not available", and asks me to make a preview button. And when I tried to attempt to make my map preview it then came a up and said to me "This file is not displayable". And I am pretty mad about it, because I wanted to post this in my group I'm in. And I worked hard last night making it and now I can't post it to my group. I'm pretty upset and annoyed by this preview button.


And I think it should be changed back to what it was originally before.

THANK YOU.
The whole preview thing pisses me off. People make animated previews, heck there's even some that don't have previews, so why do we need them? Them being animated before you click on them doesn't seem to be an issue clearly. People say, just make a preview in Mircosoft word! I have a Mac. -_- I've looked up everything and there's no app that will allow me to make a preview type thing. I don't post often, but I have tons of other art, the nay option I had was to save it as a GIF, so now I can't upload them. I don't think I was here when the previews weren't needed but I seriously think they need to be taken down. It's a nuisance and it kinda takes away. The animation might be what draws a person to click on it. I know for me when I say something that say "PREVIEW CLICK HERE" it's a turn off.
Whoa that was long. XD But seriously, it's so annoying agh.

Autocomplete is OK but more hover popups is a terrible suggestion, they are extremely annoying. We know how to click if we want to see someone's gallery.

I'm sorry, I got really angry at the new feature since I find it dumb and unnecessary, since it functions just the same as :dev:. ;w; I'm sorry I snapped.

I don't really know why they're still going with these "updates". It's hardly any actual updates at all, just some mindless changes and additions that alters our joyful experience in DeviantArt. It's a struggle to enjoy dA anymore. ;~;

A few complaints:

1) There's a big blank square on my deviantID; I'd like to be able to actually have no picture.
2) The friend manager interface needs some improvements.
3) Stop counting journals as deviations. Journals are not pieces. We can't tell how many pieces people have published.
