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.
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 Sta.sh (Beta Testers)
Two new features to make viewing and organizing your Sta.sh even easier have been launched to Beta Testers!
When you upload a file to your Sta.sh by dragging and dropping it, you can now easily put your file in a specific place in your Sta.sh! 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 Sta.sh!
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!

Thank you for the feedback left on last week's Site Update!
- The majority of the feedback left on last week's Site Update was related to new deviation page testing. 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.
- Of particular note, deviants liked the change to More From This Artist, and disliked the changed position of the Favourites and Remove from Messages buttons.
- Feedback regarding the Profile Tab uplift was mixed. Some deviants mentioned a dislike for the "Submit" buttons on the Gallery and Journal tabs.
Have you ever sent one Note to multiple deviants? If so, how often do you send Notes to multiple deviants, and what are your reasons for doing so, generally?
