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 Way To Write Journals (Beta Testers Only) Writer's toolbar and sidebar have been incorporated into the Write a Journal Entry page to make for a more dynamic journal creation experience! Some of the most highly requested features for the Journal submission page have been present in Writer for some time, such as rich-text formatting and a formatting toolbar. With Writer's advanced capability added, writing a Journal becomes even easier than before.

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Deviants were pleased with the introduction of Madefire to deviantART.
  • Feedback regarding purchasing Premium Content varied. Some mentioned purchasing or selling adoptables, while others mentioned resources, such as textures or digital doll bases.
  • Some deviants would like a way to find deviants with similar interests, based on similarities in their Favourites. Suggested by Jackartha 


Featured Gallery
When visiting your own Gallery or the Gallery of another deviant, the section displayed by default is your Featured folder. Do you organize what appears in your Featured folder and what does not, or do you submit everything to your Featured folder? When looking at another deviant's Gallery, do you typically go directly to the "Browse" mode, or do you usually browse through their Featured folder and other folders?

The same over here! For some reason, when you check out the preview section (if you try typing in the journal before), may have some of the typing.

How the hell do you delete journal entries with this tho?..

You can delete Journal entries by going to the Journal you want to delete. The Delete button is in the right column of the page. :)
