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 Submission Process

DeviantART is proud to announce a new way to submit and share your art. Our new submission process is powered by Sta.sh, our portable creative studio, making it quicker, easier, and more streamlined to submit art than ever before!



Change Log

  • Several obsolete, deleted categories still had deviations in them. Fixed by shahyarg
  • Firefox for Android was not recognized as a mobile browser. Fixed by aMoniker
  • For a brief period, Journals would always submit to the Personal category, no matter what category was selected. Fixed by helloandre
  • Banned users could get stuck on the Llama Trade page. Fixed by shahyarg
  • For a short time, the navigation buttons for comments on some deviation pages were not working. Fixed by muteor
  • The Share button for Pinterest was broken on Prints pages. Fixed by aMoniker
  • The main menu was not working properly for Android browsers. Fixed by aMoniker
  • Blocked users visiting a critiqueable deviation received an odd message when trying to leave a critique. Fixed by helloandre
  • .png images were not allowed into some categories where jpegs were allowed. Fixed by shahyarg
  • Under some circumstances, the profit display shown on a deviant's My Earnings page could be off by 1 penny due to a rounding error. This only affected the profit's display, and not the profit itself. Fixed by yury-n
  • The "Next" and "Previous" buttons on a deviant's own Gallery and Favorites were briefly non-functional. Fixed by muteor

deviantART muro


  • Some deviants encountered a redirect error when accessing muro from Internet Explorer 8. Fixed by mudimba
  • There were some errors in certain circumstances when entering text for the text brush. Fixed by mudimba
  • When using deviantART muro in comments, the text brush was unintentionally selectable. Fixed by mudimba
  • deviantART muro is now useable for smaller screen/window sizes. Fixed by mudimba
  • The eraser tools were unintentionally disabled for drawing in selected areas. Fixed by mudimba
  • There were slight cosmetic issues with the "Import Image" interface. Fixed by mudimba

Sta.sh / New Submit


  • Editing a deviation's category and Prints settings did not work on mobile devices. Fixed by drommk
  • Changing a deviation's main file in editor did not visually display a change. Fixed by drommk
  • Instructions did not appear correctly on the "Submit Prints" and Premium Content checkboxes. Fixed by adahacker
  • The Submit page did not have a "Reset submission" option for deviations created with Sta.sh Writer. Fixed by adahacker
  • When editing already published deviations, the colors and button positions in modals were displaying incorrectly. Fixed by drommk
  • Premium Content was not remembered when "remember these settings" was selected. Fixed by adahacker
  • The "saving" notification for autosave has been updated. Fixed by adahacker
  • The "show preview" link for descriptions was moved outside of the text box, for the sake of clarity. Fixed by adahacker
  • A checkbox to use default settings for prints was added. Fixed by drommk
  • A checkbox was added so the file being submitted as the deviation can also be included as Premium Content. Fixed by adahacker

Sta.sh Writer


  • There were some rendering issues in Sta.sh comments for Safari 6 users with Mountain Lion. Fixed by kemayo
  • Clicking "done" on Sta.sh Writer while deviantART muro was still saving changes made to an image in the document would cause Sta.sh Writer to exit before the drawing changes had been saved. Fixed by kemayo
  • The Writer sidebar would cover the screen, when leaving Sta.sh comments on mobile devices. Fixed by inazar
  • Some formatting issues occurred for literature and Journal thumbnails, particularly when included in a Journal. Fixed by Alisey
  • The "Conversation" tab in Sta.sh comments would display a single column of thumbs, instead of two. Fixed by Alisey

Your Feedback


Thank you for your feedback on last week's Site Update! Once again, quite a bit of feedback was left, and so we wanted to address some concerns raised in the comments.
  • Regarding More Like This on deviation pages, while some deviants enjoyed the ways this new feature could get even more eyes on their deviations, others were dissatisfied. Some deviants felt it should be moved further down the page, others felt it would lower traffic to their own artwork, and still others didn't want the artwork of others to display on their deviation pages.
    • Based solely on statistics we've tracked since last week, there's been a great improvement in the amount of traffic since the launch of More Like This on the deviation page. While a rough average for deviantART's pageviews in 2012 was around 80 million per day, on Sunday alone, this number jumped to 91 million pageviews -- 11 million more views in just one day.
    • The More Like This box generally favors artwork created by the deviant whose art is being featured, but even in cases where it displays similar art by other artists, keep in mind that this means your works may be showcased in More Like This results for other deviations. With More Like This, your art stands a better chance of being seen by people who love art just like yours, directly displaying it to its target audience and bringing more traffic to your deviations than by search or random discovery alone.
    • As mentioned in last week's Site Update, this feature is still being tested. It is not yet visible to everyone and is not finalized. We are going to continue the testing process, as we want to do what's best for the community as a whole. During the testing process, we will be open to the successes and failures of various trials and will continue to monitor community feedback. Keep an eye on hq for further journals dedicated to this topic.
  • A few deviants mentioned that they encountered mature content in the More Like This section that they felt they shouldn't see. 
    • More Like This results respect the Mature Content settings of the viewer, so if you see something that you feel you shouldn't see for Mature Content reasons, then it is likely because the deviation has not been flagged as mature. If you feel it should be, go to that deviation's page, click "Report Deviation", and select "Mature Tag Needed" from the options that appear.
  • Deviants would like to use deviantART muro in Notes. Suggested by Ohthehumanityplz

Ah, that will be why. The Literature category does not allow for Sta.sh Writer documents to be submitted when images are included in the document. If you want to submit literature with a preview image, you can use the Enter Text method on the Submit page, and then from there you can select the pencil menu from the top right and select "Change preview image". I hope that helps :)

I've been trying to submit a new deviation for the past 20 minutes or so. But, no matter what I've tried: refreshing the page, resubmitting the deviation, closing the browser, or reconnecting my internet connection, nothing is working right now. I could do it earlier, so I don't know why I can't all of a sudden.

Not only that, I can type the description and tags, but I can't choose the dimensions for the file, the categories, folders, or even click "submit". I'm totally lost and have gotten a bit frustrated.:shrug::confused:

Hello! It seems that I cannot submit journals nor deviations on my kindle fire, whereas I used to be in the past. I was able to even after the update but now, however, those... options, as they may be called, are not present. Could you send some help my way? :)

Is there a way to edit the new submit button taking up space in the main gallery?

It's poor visual design to have that there with the thumbnails .  Overall the new layout is a bit much.

Hello!
I am trying to submit a PNG file and in every category it says: That category doesn't allow this type of deviation.
I'm pretty sure that it is the correct category, but it is not allowing me...

:lightbulb: Have a suggestion, idea, or feedback? Yes, i do.
Suggestion:Remove the Shitty Sta.sh! Old submit page was better! Even journals were cooler before. If you carry on putting stash in everywhere, DeviantART will die! It will be Sta.sh instead DeviantART!

When youre updating the lame Sta.sh, you could add some other feature! Like, submitting art from Mail, make downloadable deviantART version (program) and lots and lots of more! You just waste your time making stash upload page. You should look what WE want, not what YOU think we will like! I refuse to be on DeviantART while Sta.sh is taking over. If Sta.sh wont be out of all of the submit pages and journal, i WILL deactivate. Da is turning into Shit.

*facedesk*facedesk*facedesk*

honestly, i didn't care either way much about the new upload system at first. i found it unnessecary, weird, and somewhat annoying, but not "bad" per se. i am now changing my mind about that apathetic view due to not being able to upload my writing. i still can't figure out why, and haven't been able to find a solution. (your help centre sucks too, by the way.)

still don't know why you did this. is it because you were introducing other new features (*cough cough sucky muro cough*) at the same time? is it one of those "every-other-site-in-the-world-is-doing-it-so-we-have-to-too" things? because logically, i can't wrap my head around introducing a new feature just for the hell of it. you spent so much time on this that could have been spent ACTUALLY improving the site instead of throwing a coat of crappy white paint on a turd and calling it a feature. why fix what isn't broken?

at the very least, you should have given us the option to use the "old uploader" on our profiles or something. at the end of the day it should be the USER'S choice, NOT what you THINK we'll like.


not that you're going to listen to this anyway. you've got your head shoved so far up your ass that everything you hear is sunshine and unicorn farts. >>;

I honestly think so too. Stash is allmost useless, and they made the old and awesome submit page lame and hard to use? Literaly, with the journal stash i need to click five time on the title to be able to write in it!!!

If this caries on, deviantART will become Sta.sh .

This stash stuff has to go!

The new page is counter-intuitive and/or does not work.

I just uploaded a konfabulator widget, it took a while, a preview was required. I had none, so I saved and exited while I created a preview. That done, I have tried to edit the deviation to add the preview. It will not allow me to do so. It just says "No preview available". This is stupid, who thought this thing through?

I simply want to be able to edit the thing to add a preview. Do I really have to delete the deviation and then resubmit with everything prepared in advance?
If so, what is the point of stash? It is useless to me.

Stash is not well thought out. DeviantArt is stash already, we don't need another stash. You could have simply added a publish/unpublish field to the database so we could upload and store deviations at will.

The thing is over-engineered, requires too much hardware, often the latest o/s and browser and it does not meet the user requirement - simply dump it! It isn't a matter of whether it goes, it is merely when... your submission rates will be dropping, new deviant uptake will stall and you will have no choice in the end but to revert.

The whole thing has been foolish.
