Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say:
  • Deviants were positive about the size adjustment tool in DeviantArt muro.
  • Responses to the discuss topic varied, although deviants frequently mentioned that they either only check off people they know as Friends, or they mark everyone/no one as Friends.
  • Some deviants mentioned that they would be more inclined to sort deviants into Friend Lists if they could then use those lists to more easily browse their Message Center or apply them to Channels.

Discuss!


Recent Topics and World Events

My site has worked fine for the past year and up to last week. Just checked it now and it won't upload.  I know someone else who uses daportfolio too and his doesn't upload now either. Any suggestions. Is this caused by the recent work being done on Deviant art?

I don't know if it's just me or the whole site but,

I can't get & send notices.
When I join a group, I can't get the "Accepted / Declied" response.

I've just tried submitting one of my deviations to a group. It was accepted but still didn't get the notice & it didn't appear in my deviation box. ( I'm a member of that group and didn't disabled deviations )

I don't know if it's just my computer, but the past few days I can't load any images correctly. They glitch up and I can't see the picture, and it's Just deviantart, other sites load images just fine, is anyone else having this problem?

This is not fixed. I just tried it. frozen page, not responding and I can't even shut down the page and my computer sounds like it is processing the digital data from Mars surface mapping! . Just like before, the only way to get out of the frozen page is to reboot the computer.

How can your programmers manage to cause this sort of thing? I am guessing it is not intentional but some virus makers would probably love to find tricks to freeze and increase CPU usage like this.

Any help is appreciated ^^

Did you try to import it while already staying inside the Muro (open the program and then press "Import" on the bar below or use the line "Import Image as Layer" from the drop-down menu above)?

Check the Console window when trying to import the image (F12 in Chrome and IE, Ctrl+Shift+K in Firefox) - maybe there would be some extra information.

I just sent a message to the support center : when I uploaded my deviation tonight, nobody received it. I asked my friends and some watchers, nothing at all (and no view, this is what I found strange at first). Deleted it and reuploaded it 3 times, nothing at all. I left an old account full of bugs (I remember when I had to clic "no" for saying "yes" XD ok, I have to admit this one was hiliarous) to start another account also full of bugs ... :/ Please, I hope somebody will be able to fix it~ maybe I'm not the only one in that case, this is why I'm posting this comment, to let you know if you want to fix something for the next update. Thank you for reading.

There's some weird log in and other problems with dA, it's been happening to almost everyone including myself, for the past few days and it's starting to really bother me. I like to stay logged in to my account for my messages and feedback from my friends and other artists. But, I am not sure if this is a glitch or a bug in the dA system. Something has to be done about it. I hope they fix it up and have it working like normal again. I hope.

There are people who are having trouble logging into their DeviantArt account and plus there are little errors popping up saying that "message cannot be at this time" or "DiFi Request" something like that. I don't know if it's a glitch or some kind of issue with DeviantArt's system. I'm sorry that I cannot be anymore specific on this. That's what I know.

I'm just afraid that it's difficult to talk about problem you don't observe yourself. Some people said that they had trouble to log in or received some errors - it's not concrete, actually, and I doubt that it could help since we don't know, who, when, in which conditions, why etc.

I know, I know. It's difficult to explain, I can even understand it as well. So enough talking about it. I'm afraid there's nothing that can be done if we keep talking about it. I'll just have to deal with it and see if these conditions will change overtime and maybe things will be back to normal if DeviantArt resolves this problem. I'm sorry for wasting your time.

There has been problems with the Deviation count on Profile pages-
For example: I only have 4 deviations up at the moment, but it's telling me that I have 14 of them posted
It's not really an issue, I would just like to see it fixed if possible

SUGGESTIONS
:bulletblack: Can we please have the ability to put Custom Widgets in any Page Zone, not just Misc.?
:bulletblack: And the ability to put a custom background/wallpaper image on any widget. I've been forcing it in, but it's not the same as if it were natively enabled because stuff doesn't resize properly.

I keep forgetting to write these, and when I remember, it's in between Site updates >.<

:iconimmerot:
Immerot Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014
Actually, you could simply remove the ID and journal widgets, so the custom one would move up by itself (example here).

:iconbarananduen:
barananduen Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014   General Artist
Yeah, a friend of mine did that too, but although it would have worked great to replace the real ID widget, I wanted to keep the Journal widget (I also wanted it below the ID) without having to fiddle with embedding and forcing things to stretch and trying to get the stripes of the bg img to match and all that.

Suggestion. As kami-bakura said a "spoiler" option working the same way as the "mature filter" when submitting deviations wouldn't be a bad idea. And you could also add a "show/hide spoilers" option as well, the same way as with the mature filter! C:

I have not been able to submit any new prints since the last update. I can upload deviations, but when the "Submit Print" is selected it just keeps saying "Loading...". I use Google Chrome and my java and flash are up to date.

Prints are experiencing problems recently. It takes about five minutes or so to upload a print from time to time. Did you try to wait a little bit more? Or it doesn't proceed regardless of how long you've been waiting?

When I'm submitting a new deviation and it gets to the print setup step. It just sits there with the Loading and the little circle timer under it. Never pops up with size and pricing options.  I let it sit there for about 10 minutes while I was browsing the web to waste time. Still didn't go through.

Just tried Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome. All had the same issue. Then I figured maybe my java is outdated so I redownloaded that and it's still doing the same hangup on the print submission screen.

You mean the Oracle's Java? I'm afraid that Oracle's Java and JavaScript (which is in charge of scripts here) are two different "javas", so the update for Java on your computer doesn't concern the JavaScript in your browser.)
Anyway. At first you could try the following:
 - check every program on your computer which could block the scripts or interfere the connection (antivirus, firewall, p2p-clients etc);
 - check the prints submitting on some other device (or even on some other internet-connection - from your friend's house, for example) - this method could help to find out if the problem is related to connection or the dA-account.

Yea oracle java.
But I've tried 3 different computers. a Vista, windows 7 and an alienware windows 8. All have the same issue.
Maybe it's my isp. I'll try at school tomorrow, see if I get the same result.

I think there should be a way to unsubscribe from notifications regarding a certain deviation. I made a screenshot of the brushes that I use in SAI and it has a ton of views, faves, etc. However, I don't really care to receive notifications about faves on it because it's not really my artwork at all but just a resource for others. Comments, yes, but I don't care about whether someone faves that particular piece.

You should also have the option to watch a deviant on each of their deviations. Like a "Like what you see? +watch this deviant!" under the "Other stuff by (username)" or even encouraged by having a "Add to Watch list" under the "Add to favorites" button. I feel watching should be encouraged.

I think it would also be useful to know how many of your watchers are subscribed to different parts of the watch options. Not which user is subscribed to what, just a percentage. Like "40% of your watchers are subscribed to your journals" and "2% are subscribed to your Scraps" and whatnot.

I also think that a way of organizing comics so that you can view multiple pages at once, such as compiling them in an issue or chapter format. This way, there aren't a ton of pages floating around everywhere with spatterings of faves. A person can read an entire chapter in one go rather than needing to search through a deviant's gallery. Allowing comments in a per-page manner as well and offer the entire chapter for download for points if the artist wishes it. A great illustration of what I mean can be found here: kaoyux.deviantart.com/art/SUGG…
