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

The New Suggestions Forum

We started running a trial of a new Suggestions Forum in May, and after monitoring its usage and the benefits it provides, we have replaced the old Suggestions Forum with a new Suggestions Forum located in our Customer Service system, Zendesk. A link to the new Suggestions Forum can be easily reached from the Forums page.

This new Suggestions Forum allows for a great deal of flexibility in how we approach suggestions, including giving staff the ability to mark suggestions as complete, planned, or not planned. It also gives the community the ability to vote up suggestions they agree with. The more votes that a suggestion receives, the higher that suggestion will appear in the forum! Unlike our previous Suggestions Forum, threads don't expire, and when creating a new thread you'll be prompted with similar threads, to help reduce the amount of duplicate threads.

Your Feedback

Thanks for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Feedback regarding the changes to the new deviation page were positive.
  • Deviants were generally positive about the launch of Mentions to Beta Testers, though a few deviants mentioned not wanting to receive Mentions. These deviants were pleased when informed there is a way to turn Mentions on or off from the Settings page.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, several deviants mentioned that they find the Custom widget to be their most valuable widget. Some deviants also mentioned the deviantID widget, the Commissions widget, and the Poll widget.

I would like a screensaver/background changer for windows (I use vista), that scrolls through and displays a deviation folder created on the site. I could then place found deviations into that folder and get to see them continuously.   I would suggest the cost of using the deviations to be 1 token per month (possibly per deviation) payable to the deviation submitter.  I could, of course, simply download them locally and use my own screensaver/background changer, but believe this would be fairer to the deviation creators and puts dev' in the business of selling tokens and mediating.  Thanks.

When posting a comment on a profile, or on a tread in the forum (yes, in this one too), as I click on the blank space to write, page JUMP at the top and I have to scroll down and search again for the blank space to write.
Pls fix the BUG.
Thank you.

I've been having an issue with Muro. Once i've saved my work, it changes the color of some of the things. It'd be great if that got fixed ASAP
