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.

Change Log

  • The Twitter widget for Profile Pages was not visually displaying correctly on wider screens. Fixed by justgalym
  • When browsing content in, the "Previous" and "Next" buttons would not work after editing a file's description. Fixed by elhsmart
  • For deviants with wider browsers, the search bar on the Chat portal would appear numerous times. Fixed by shendykurnia
  • The "Forgot password?" page was not usable on mobile devices. Fixed by ultramouse
  • The "Change Username" modal would not show properly after an error message was displayed. Fixed by ultramouse
  • Files in would have "Click to Add Description" included in their description, even after description text was added. Fixed by elhsmart
  • From time to time, an unnecessary horizontal scrollbar would appear on the mobile website. Fixed by shendykurnia
  • It was possible to enable downloads when submitting Motion Books, even though that would only trigger the thumbnail being downloaded. Fixed by DEVlANT

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Deviants were pleased about the launch of the Motion Book Tool. 
  • In response to the Discuss topic, some deviants mentioned using Scraps as a place to keep older work as an archive of sorts, while others mentioned using it for works-in-progress, doodles, or things they want to include in a Journal without including it in their main Gallery.
  • While most deviants mentioned never moving things from Scraps into their main Gallery, a few deviants mentioned that when using it to host works-in-progress, they'll update the main file of that deviation with the completed work, and then move it to their Gallery from there.

Yes I have. It's usually an overly busy schedule that causes it, and once that dissipates I'm back online.

I've taken several hiatuses from dA, Facebook, Tumblr...Especially Tumblr. Mainly because sometimes the entire Internet is just too hostile for me to be on it and I just want to take a few days to cool off...And sometimes it's because I'm out camping with no Internet access at all. :bucktooth:

I, usually, take a hiatus, if I needed as short break from writing, art, and etc....

You guys should add a stamps widget for people to use. It would be a lot easier and faster than having to copy-paste thumb codes one by one.

The reason why I'm taking a hiatus from DeviantArt is because I don't even have a convenient scanner.

The hiatus question... Yeah, I'll be going on hiatus from the internet since I use my neighbor's wifi and they're leaving for vacation so I'll have no internet but I'm sure he's gonna return soon to collect my bills lol. xD

Internet without a month.... God... my anxiety. ;-;

Road travel takes me away from the internet, and I always welcome it.
