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.

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us.
- In response to the Discuss topic, some deviants said that their relationships with other deviants were generally friendships, although some other deviants mentioned it being business relationships, and a few deviants mentioned romantic relationships as well!
- In most cases, deviants met one another through shared interests or because they create using the same medium as one another. Some deviants mentioned meeting one another through a Group, and Lyricanna mentioned FelesTacita meeting them through the Random Deviant button.
- Silverti and Nortya suggested a feature that you could use to find other deviants based on shared interests, creation methods, and other things.
