What's New

Writing Descriptions with Writer

As part of our initiative to make formatting and conversation easier and more dynamic, you can now use the Add Media tool to add content and formatting to deviation descriptions, item descriptions, and stack descriptions!

This makes it easier than ever to add formatting to your artist's description, and it also makes it easier than ever for Premium Members to include images in descriptions!

New "Create A Profile" Flow

We've updated and simplified the "Create Your Profile" modal to make it easier to sign up and get your Profile Page started!

Your Feedback

Thanks for your feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Feedback regarding the update to the Earnings page was positive.
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied. Several deviants mention that they add Prints to their Wishlist when browsing, and then purchase them at a later date, while other deviants mentioned searching in the Prints Shop or browsing their Favourites for artwork that has Prints enabled.



In June, Multi-Submit was launched, giving Premium Members the ability to easily upload and submit several deviations from the Submit page all at once. Have you used Multi-Submit? If so, how often do you use it, and what do you submit with it? Do you find it easy or useful to be able to submit multiple deviations at once?

Hi there! It should work same as normal in deviation descriptions. You can also add them by using the sidebar of the Add Media tool, when on the Submit page. :)

Hi there! What happens when you try to submit your art to deviantART from
crowguts Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013

I can't get into folders now, and I can't select anything. I don't know if anyone else is having problems but you guys need to look into this as I have some really important commissions in folders but I can no longer access my folders.
I've tried on Chrome and Firefox and it doesn't work in either. Please fix this.

Hi there! I can access your folders just fine. When using Chrome and Firefox, do you have any browser extensions enabled? Also, does this link work for you?
crowguts Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013

Actually I was referring to folders, my gallery folders are working fine lol. Should have been more clear about that.
Either way, my is working properly now so no need to panic. Thanks for the response!

I have some suggestions that would be useful, please consider it.

1: Since there's a search bar in every deviant's gallery to search after a certain drawing, this search option should be available in Favourites too since it would be too much to keep searching back and forth after a certain art the deviant had faved to their collection.
2: Since I use my phone or iPad to go on dA when I'm not always on a computer, a visible status on the deviant's comment bar should show*username* on dA via iPad/phone so my friends can see that I'm using a other device sometime when I'm not on a computer.
3: The DELETE COMMENT option on the pen tool, I really NEED it. Because I'm sick and TIRED of the spam I get on my art or on my profile when it comes to trolls or spammers and hidding comments or flagging as spam just make it hiddeous and messy. And so I can clean this slate I've been dealing with in the past, needs to get completely cleaned up and moving to a new account is a waste for me.

Anyone here agree with me?
