Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us:
  • Feedback regarding the implementation of Google Analytics was generally positive. A few deviants mentioned wanting it to be a feature available to everyone.
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied. Some deviants said they prefer to request critique from specific friends in private, while others mentioned asking for general feedback and working from there. A common response from deviants was that critique was most preferred on works in progress, and that asking for critique on completed work was not as useful.

why did the button 'delete from messages' disappear, when going through my deviations messages, i like to go through them by clicking on one, seeing the fullview, then clicking 'delete from messages' button just above the 'add to favourites' and then i'd see next picture, in fullview as well, why did it go away? could you please consider bringing it back? it was extremely useful.

You guys should change the layout maybe? nwn I personally like the green, but I feel as if it being 2014 the site should look a little more "high-tech" (Basically cooler? ;v; ) but still easy to use.
I find the layout a bit boring a guess 
I don't know

Also, the mentions system doesn't always work? Sometimes people mention me and it doesn't come into my inbox at all, making them have to link me things like Commissions/gifts

Keep up the good work nwn

See how neat and clean this blog post looks?

Please, consider changing the background color for the community. This is my only real gripe with deviantART. If it is fixed, I feel it could significantly improve the look and feel of the site as a whole. The not-neutral, gaudy green is not optimal for viewing variously colored images. It skews the viewers' perception. Art shows true colors and stands out best against a neutral background.

Here is an example:

I liked the comments better when I first came to deviantart on my Lilybeanie04 account. Back in those days, we could edit,delete, report, and put down how we are feeling in comments. I'd also like to see the staff submission page. Not that I don't like it, its just high time we change it. I heard its been like this for a year or 2 now. Also, (this happened a few months ago when I was on my Lilybeanie04 account but still) One time a person commented on a group I made and it wasn't in till two or 3 weeks in till deviantart emailed me the comment.

Btw, I think you should add a button were we can favorite comments. :iconfluttershysqueeplz: You should also give us the 3 month premium membership button back. I also think you should give us a search bar in the favorites section. You should also give us sub folders, its another way to help us find stuff quicker. I'd also suggest letting people change there username anytime they want after 2 days have passed since you hanged your username, kinda like the deactivation thing. You should also let us use the same email more than 1 time. Some people really need that to be changed. The staff should also add an ignore button in the comments section.
