Site Update: Survey

Thu Feb 21, 2013, 6:45 PM

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.

DeviantART on Your Mobile Browser 
Did you know that you can discover what’s happening on deviantART right from your mobile phone? Using our mobile site, you can browse beautiful art, check your Messages, read your Notes, and keep a pulse on the deviantART community from anywhere. Visit from your Android or iOS device, and bring the art and community with you wherever you go.

Change Log

  • A new badge and promoted Journal Skin were added for Neil Gaiman's 'A Calendar of Tales'. Added by ArtBIT
  • The system for the Be My Valentine Art Exchange was implemented. Added by aMoniker
  • Discover (Beta) was removed from the site, due in combination to a general lack of use and its lowered efficiency when compared to More Like This. Removed by kemayo
  • Film deviations that were embedded off-site would not play right away. Fixed by yury-n
  • When using the "Next" and "Previous" buttons to browse, the Favorites menu would stay open, if opened prior to navigating to another deviation. Fixed by shadowhand
  • Preview images for Print products on deviation pages were broken in rare cases. Fixed by shadowhand
  • For a brief period, clicking the "Purchase" button didn't work for some Premium Content downloads. Fixed by aMoniker
  • Dragging a deviation when in a stack would not make the Favorites dropdown appear, if the deviant had their Message Center set to display big thumbs. Fixed by muteor
  • Deleted deviations that were not yet withdrawn from the Message Center would display oddly. Fixed by aMoniker
  • Invalid code could be put into the bio area of one's Portfolio, and that would break the portfolio's display. Fixed by shadowhand
  • Updated deviations were not labeled as such in the Message Center. Fixed by muteor
  • On Prints pages, if the lustre finish was selected by default, the checkbox would appear next to glossy instead. Fixed by shadowhand
  • The "Buy this Print" box would be scrolled off of the deviation page when clicked, as the page switched to the Print's preview image. Fixed by allixsenos

deviantART muro

  • Redraw playback had some cosmetic display problems. Fixed by sgrahamUK
  • Using thumbcodes in comments did not work correctly for deviations that were made in deviantART muro. Fixed by sgrahamUK
  • Several speed improvements were made. Fixed by sgrahamUK and mudimba / Submit

  • The "suggested categories" option would appear even when there were no suggested categories. Fixed by kouiskas
  • The "Submit Prints" option would appear even when the image wasn't large enough for any Print option. Fixed by drommk
  • When submitting a previously saved submission with Prints originally disabled, the prints settings area would not display. Fixed by drommk
  • Prints preferences would be updated even when an error happened when trying to turn Prints on. Fixed by drommk
  • The "Prints not supported" warning would sometimes appear twice. Fixed by drommk
  • Typing a large description in Firefox could result in the top line of the description going out of view. Fixed by drommk
  • When using quotes in keywords, the keywords wouldn't reload correctly upon editing. Fixed by kouiskas
  • Picking a category would sometimes scroll the page to the top. Fixed by kouiskas
  • A Prints-related error would appear when using remembered settings and editing a deviation type that doesn't support Prints. Fixed by drommk
  • When selecting a category that doesn't allow Prints, the Prints option would still display in IE8. Fixed by drommk Writer

  • Journals published from the legacy Journal Submit page were only showing up in the "browse" view on deviants' Journal pages. Fixed by kemayo
  • The author of a Group journal couldn't always edit it if they left and re-joined the group. Fixed by Alisey
  • Pasting text into Writer would automatically remove non-breaking spaces. Fixed by Alisey
  • Writer would automatically switch to rich editing mode if a skin was applied. Fixed by Alisey
  • If "Show More" was clicked when viewing emoticons in the sidebar, there was no visual indication that it was loading more results. Fixed by inazar
