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


Change Image Size in deviantART muro


When editing images in deviantART muro, you can now change the image's size, even after you've started making changes. This has been a frequently requested addition, and we're happy to make the creative process easier than ever.

Try it out by visiting deviantART muro!

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us:
  • Deviants were positive about the Valentine's Day Art Exchange, and many have already started sharing the love!
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied, though commonly mentioned tools included Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop, Paint Tool SAI, GIMP, Copic markers, and a variety of inking pens and pencils.

Discuss!


Friends Organization

When adding a deviant to your +Watch list, when do you choose to check or uncheck the "Friend" label? If you sort your Friends into lists, what types of lists have you created? What ways would you like to see Friends lists used on deviantART?

I think this just may be a problem for me, but when I draw with deviantART muro it says I'm not logged in, and it won't erase anything.

The friend list and options are fine as they are, but the alphabetical order don't work (for me at least).
I made several list to group people I watch into different categories according to their preferences (for example, a group for Zelda fans, another for One Piece fans, etc.) / what they draw most, and I uncheck the "friend" label when I watch people I don't have a deep relationship with on a personal or professional level.

Not sure if this is a result of the update, or just a new bug. The newest deviantion widget does not display newly uploaded deviations >.<

At all? Or it does display it after some time?
I just suppose that it could be related to the data updating.

How about a normal pencil brush for dA muro?

Also I have an uploading category idea.

You should let us upload mp4 files, because if people like me don't have flash or cant convert things to gifs, they can leave it as is so they don't have to worry about all of that trouble.

I actually have a suggestion that SHOULD be added because it would be EXTREMELY helpful for people like me who own groups.
There should be a Setting in the Group Settings page that let's you chose to let people automatically join the group.

HOWEVER, it should ALSO give you the options of which class they are automatically allowed to join, so people cant automatically become a co-founder or contributer, and only members, to avoid people screwing up the group.

I hope you understand what I mean by these.

I'm fairly certain this is already implemented...at least, I have my group set up so people can join and don't need approval, and it's only members that can join.
