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

Help Desk Holiday Closure

The Help Desk will officially be closed from Tuesday, December 24th to Wednesday, January 1st for the holidays. However, some deviantART staff members will be handling tickets for limited hours during this time, with higher priority tickets being addressed first.

Rest assured that tickets will be answered as quickly as possible. We thank you for your patience, and we wish you a happy and festive holiday season!

Please note: due to the holiday closure, there will not be a Site Update posted next week. We will be back on the first Thursday of 2014!

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Many deviants were excited about the integration with SketchBook mobile apps, and there has been a strong increase in deviations being submitted that were created in the SketchBook mobile apps. Keep an eye on autodesk-sketchbook to see regular updates from the SketchBook team, as well as awesome artwork being created in SketchBook!

In addition to the feedback left on last week's Site Update, we revisited an older list of frequent suggestions left on site updates and went through it. Many suggestions were removed, as they have since been implemented! We've also made some notes for suggestions that have not been implemented yet, but which we are aware of. The full list can be found here.


Group Management

What is your routine for managing Groups you help administrate? How often do you visit Groups you manage? Does your Group allow all submissions, or do you require voting for deviations? What duties are expected of you and your Group's administrators on a regular basis?

Hi to everyone,  I have been out of action for I hope everyone had a safe Christmas and a Healthy New Year 2014.
Keep those wonderful Drawings coming in.. I love browsing through them to see what I have missed out on.

I'm late in here, but can you post "manage members" alphabetically so we can find a deviant without searching the entire list. I find when I want to promote a long time member to contributors it takes quite a while to find them and I've only got 1000 some members, groups with 30,000... Good luck. :no:
thank for the info

Hi there! When on your Group's homepage, if you click on this button:

You'll see a drop down menu that looks like this:

From there, you'll want to select "Close the Group". I hope that helps! If it's not working for you, then you'll want to file a bug report at the Help Desk about it. :)
