In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

What's New


Upcoming Changes


In the coming months, you may notice that the weekly Change Log is shorter than usual. This is because we're hard at work on a variety of major projects, and our development teams are focusing their energy almost solely in these areas. Stay tuned, as we'll have more exciting information on those projects in the next few weeks!

We will still be addressing bug reports during this time, so if you encounter any bugs, please do file a Bug Report about it at the Help Desk.

Change Log


  • On the mobile website, all comments were briefly displaying as Featured by Owner. Fixed by inazar
  • Uploading images for avatars and the deviantID widget was briefly broken. Fixed by randomduck

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 addition of editing comments.
  • Some deviants voiced concern regarding abuse of the Hide Comment feature. As a reminder in cases like this, if you feel that someone is using the comment system to leave comments that are against our Etiquette Policy, then please file a Policy Inquiry about it at the Help Desk.
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied. Generally, deviants mentioned that the advice they would give is to leave good feedback for artists, comments that are to the point but also considerate and constructive.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, Eldr-Fire's advice was to be sure not to make your comments about you, but rather about the art you're commenting on, as that will be the most helpful for the artist.

Discuss!


Works In Progress

Do you post works in progress to deviantART? Are you comfortable with posting works in progress to your main Gallery, or do you post to your Scraps? Do you upload them to Sta.sh to share with other artists whose feedback you value first, or are you more inclined to post them publicly?

I am with SigiTurtle there. I have a lot of watchers who don't watch my scraps. I don't either for others. It would be great to have a WIP section for those who do WIP submissions. Also posting to the Stash is something I don't use often. Plus no one would know if I even posted anything in there. Even if I made a journal I myself don't have anyone who ever reads them to my knowledge. None of my watchers ever comment on them.

Hi^^
I don't know if this was mentioned yet:

When I browse pictures of my watchlist I'd love to see directly if this pic is in my favourits already without having to click it. Would that be possible?

And I'd looooove to have a WIP section to put WIPs there *.*

I don't post WIPs. I have one WIP deviation that I change from time to time just to let people know that I'm working, but lately it's been the same work because of reasons.
I don't know what I'm doing with my Scraps. It's just stuff in there..

Well, if all my WIPs looked like JW's then yeah, I'd post them!
Seriously though, I sometimes post them to get feedback.

About the WIPs: Depends on the WIP, as rarely as I post them at all, I usually post WIPs to the main gallery if I take a good photo. If it's not really anything fancy or just to show the commissioner, I post it to stash or outside dA. And I usually delete WIPs once I finish the picture.

I have a suggestion for uploading deviations!

Could you please consider changing the folder destination options so that it can recognize and differentiate between folders and sub-folders? 

I have a hard time putting the deviations in the right folders when everything is in alphabetical order, and sometimes the folders I want are next to folders which aren't even related! 

Thank you!
