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

Sale Statistics on the Earnings Page

As part of an initiative to consolidate features and make deviantART more user-friendly, the statistics system for Prints has been ported into the My Earnings page!

Stats for Prints have been ported into the Earnings page to make them more readily accessible. In addition, stats for Premium Content and Commissions have been incorporated as well, so you can easily track sales for your Prints and downloads all from one page. 

You can sort statistics by date or by purchase type to find what information you're looking for. When viewing by date, the sales will be arranged based on when they sold, and when viewing by type, the sales will be sorted between Prints, Digital Content, and Commissions, arranged from highest to lowest selling.

Targeted Drops and Infinite Scroll in (Beta Testers)

Two new features to make viewing and organizing your even easier have been launched to Beta Testers!

When you upload a file to your by dragging and dropping it, you can now easily put your file in a specific place in your! This combines the process of uploading and organizing, making it easier than before to organize and maintain your projects, even when adding new files! In addition, infinite scrolling has been added to your! 

Digital Content in the Message Center

Deviations that have Digital Content enabled will now have a "Digital Content Available" label on them, to match the labels when Prints and Downloads are available, as well as to help promote sales of your work!

In the coming days, we will be updating the community on the successes of the new design, as well as addressing areas that need further thinking and refinement. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued feedback.

one suggestion is users can make multiple icons for use like :iconcryforeverplz: instead of just a picture, i think it would be nice to be able to make icons  that can be used

You can make plz icons all you want, since you don't have to have an account verified to change the icon. All you do is you sign the account up with a fake email and then change the icon and maybe some profile info.

I have two suggestions for deviantART, and one is rather large, so it would take quite a while to put together, but it would be very very useful for all of those who use the Premium Content Platform.

The first, and simplest, of the two, is when someone has the commissions widget in use on their profile, I believe it would be beneficial to have it say that they accept commissions at the top of their comments when they leave them, right next to what kind of artist they are (see image below). I think that would help people who are offering commissions to advertise that fact in a way that isn't in-you-face, but is everywhere they comment.

The second, and a bit more complicated, idea I have is for premium content to have the same kind of section for itself on DA that Prints do. When one goes to the main DA page, you would look to the top left and see the navigation column with both a prints shop and a premium content shop (see image below). Also when browsing all artwork on DA, since prints have the little shopping bag icon next to the title on the thumbnail, I believe that premium content should also have the little diamond icon in the same place, and if someone is selling both premium content and prints for the same image, that both should appear.

I think that both these additions would greatly help artists attempting to sell their work, and they would actually greatly help DA as well, since with every commission and every premium content sale DA gets a royalty. It would make it much, much easier for people to browse and find that they are looking to purchase.

I'm having trouble with the mobile version of the sight on my Android, when I'm browsing the screen will suddenly go white then it will take me to my app store to try and get me to download an app/game (usually Candy Crush) so that I have to go back to my web browser close the tab that previously had DA on it and open it again. This is especially annoying if I'm looking for something specific and I have to start my search all over again, since the recently closed section will only give me a link back to the page that's advertising the app/game.

Thanks for paying attention to the negative comments :heart:

I've never sent multiple notes but I noticed that contest results or ads for commissions are sent this way. What I appreciate in the notes system is auto-completion, that is useful, and easier to use than if we had to type the whole usernames !
