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.

Change Log

  • For deviants with rebilling enabled on their Premium Membership, the Rebilling page would display an incorrect setting status on the day before rebilling occurred. Fixed by yury-n
  • For a brief period, dashes would be unintentionally stripped from deviation titles. Fixed by Alisey
  • When inputting text into the Real Name field of the deviantID widget, it would only allow 4 letters of the Cyrillic alphabet. Fixed by Alisey
  • Some Gallery Folder thumbnails would only load after scrolling down the page. Fixed by lepidosteus
  • Some Forum threads were created without titles and could not be closed. Fixed by Alisey
  • In Writer, pressing backspace between two differently styled sections of text would add unnecessary markup. Fixed by Alisey

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Deviants were positive about the relocation of the Fan Fiction category to the Literature gallery.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, several deviants mentioned that they did not gauge any perceived success in regard to their Collections, outside of whether or not it is personally useful to them.


Welcoming New Deviants

Earlier this week, we posted a Poll asking about what most positively impacts people who are new to deviantART, be it a welcome message, getting a Favourite notification, or other things. In addition to your thoughts on that question, we'd also like to know how you think we could make the new user experience better! What do you think we can do to make new deviants feel more welcome and have a positive first experience?

I noticed a bug, the comments have been showing incorrect times, some even state that they've been posted in '1987'

Hi all

I think that new deviants need to find a way to make friends on this website more easily and to therefore have more support and feedback as I am quite new to this site and have found it so hard to make close friends here! This can be quite frustrating because I want to have friends on this website that I can talk to frequently, give and get feedback with etc

I think my Devart experience would have been over quickly if I hadn't gotten to know some of the people I am glad to call friends her, so a better way to find deviants and people that are similar to you would be helpful.

I agree, although I had at least one person immediately- My best friend, macmari. (She introduced me to dA)

Lately, on DA, a few mistakes are on a few fanfics. Can you "elect" a few artists to be mistake-checkers or at least, do a automatic mistake-checker please?

DA can have a steep learning curve for new users. I think tutorials should be provided to every new user to assist with their enjoyment and use of the website. For instance, when a new user goes to upload an image, a pop-up (or highly visible link) should appear offering a tutorial on how the upload process works and the tutorial should walk the deviant through the upload steps.

I also think there should be a link given to new users to a list of the most important website rules that deviants should follow.
