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

Limitation Added to deviantWATCH

Due to constraints within the +Watch system, we have added a 5,000 deviant limit to the amount of deviants you can +Watch. This change only affects a very small amount of deviants, all of whom have been contacted privately regarding the matter. In the future, you will receive a notification if you attempt to watch more than 5,000 deviants.

Please note also that this only affects how many deviants you can +Watch, not how many deviants can +Watch you.

  • Trying to edit a Writer document containing a lot of emoticons could lag due to bad caching of the emoticon list. Fixed by kemayo

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback left on last week's Site Update! Here is some of what you had to say.
  • Feedback regarding the Recent Visitors widget was generally positive. Deviants mentioned that they would like the widget to display more than five usernames or icons at a time. 
  • Deviants would like an "Artist's Replies" section on deviation pages. Suggested by Veroom
  • Some deviants would like to receive notification when other deviants reply to replies on their own deviations. Suggested by TsukiNoKishi


Discovering Artists
How do you discover hidden talent on deviantART? Do you browse by Newest, by looking deep into the Popular results in specific categories, by looking at More Like This results, by browsing through Groups, or some other method?

I believe you have to get a premium membership, and then you can change your username.

I have a problem while creating a new journal. I just hate how it always sets my journal skin to the default one when I'm making a new journal. But now I can't even SET the skin anymore. I click "change skin" in right bottom corner but nothing happens.
