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 DeviantArt Community Turns 14


DeviantART's 14th birthday marks the ushering in of a new chapter of our existence as a community. For the past year, we've gained perspective on where our journey should lead us next, and we couldn't be more thrilled to share it with you and have you with us, every step of the way. Check out this message from the CEO, spyed, for a glimpse at what deviantART's future holds.

Celebrate deviantART's 14th Birthday!


As we celebrate deviantART's 14th birthday, we want to thank everyone for joining our journey of growth and development, from the deviants who have been here from the start to the deviants who are starting out their deviantART experience today. Although the day itself has passed, there's still plenty of time for you to join in the celebration and come party with us!

Take part in the My DeviantART Story project and get the 14th Birthday Badge for your Profile Page!

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us:
  • In response to the Discuss topic, several deviants mentioned that they don't generally respond to Activity messages, particularly Favourites or llama badges. Some deviants also mentioned not engaging with Critiques given by deviants they follow to others.
  • 3rdeye88 and PlatinaSi suggested a filtering option for notifications in the Message Center, so that comments and replies from deviants you watch could display first, followed by messages from others.

Discuss!


The DeviantArt Community Turns 14

While normally we like to encourage conversation on Site Updates through Discuss topics, a topic of discussion has been started on spyed's Journal, and we heartily encourage you to take part in the conversation there!

Ah, so deviantART is in its teenage emo, angsty, "why does everyone suck?" years.
No wonder the site has been sucking recently.
