The New Profile Tabs

Mon Aug 12, 2013, 5:47 PM

As part of an initiative to make deviantART more user-friendly and clearer, tabs on the Profile Page have received a visual and functional uplift!

The tabs on Profile Pages (Gallery, Prints, Favourites, and Journal) have been visually improved for consistency, cleanliness, and an overall up to date appearance. Navigation elements have been moved to the left column of the page, and the placement of major elements of each tab have been aligned so that the transition from one tab of one's Profile to another is more smooth, natural, and clean.

In addition, when viewing tabs of your own Profile, you can easily add to that tab! The Gallery tab prompts you to submit artwork, the Prints tab prompts you to submit a Print, and the Journal tab prompts you to write a Journal entry!

Hey $wreckling, i just noticed something off regarding the recently updated profile page tabs. That is, the one found on some Group pages; the currently active tab, in particular, is a tad too dark, so it doesn't blend nicely with the "blues bar" that it sits upon.

Here, i've made a screenshot of it:

(Tell me if you want me to report it as a bug, or if this one right here is fine!)

i really don't see the point in a huge submit button right in the gallery. it doesn't look very clean at all. in fact it's too distracting. just keep it where it's always been. same goes for the huge feature and scrap buttons. why is any of it getting bigger? if i need a bigger size i'll just increase my zoom; no need to do it for me. sheesh,

Mmmm... how do I sort by favorites the images of one's gallery?

I really dislike the submit buttons. They're so huge and bulky. 
It takes away from the organization and cleanness of the page. 
I really hope it's removed.

how much people that hate the damm BUTTON do you need to understand?'s so frustrating
it's an ART gallery, not a submission menu!

Honestly, the only things I didn't like much and made me really confused were:

1. THE HUGE SUBMIT ART BUTTON ON THE GALLERY / HUGE JOURNAL TAB. Srsly? It's not like it's THAT much of a bother but.. I prefer having the small button back. ; v ; Makes things more complicated.. like it's taking most of the page .___.
2. THE FEATURE / ALL / SCRAPS BUTTON THINGY. Sometimes.. I like the old one.. because it's more convenient to see the Gallery Folders first, not those big ones.. It's kinda nice, but it would be better if it was a bit smaller? O v O
3. THE "SUBMIT COMMENT" BUTTON. We can clearly see it. Even in the past. You don't need to make it bigger. And now, every time I want to put an emoticon, I still have to click the "+ Add Media" button and wait.

I like some of the improvements.. and I hope you would try and think about it. Most people would like it better if it was simpler. "User-friendly".. right? O v O  Meow :3

I really, really, REALLY don't like that the featured/all/scraps buttons is located above my folders. I purposely had it so that my commissionns folder was at the very top of the page so potential customers could see the work I've previously done. Now those buttons have taken the most prominent place on the page. I much preferred it when they were in their much more subtle previous location.

That aside the submit  button has got to go. I want to view my gallery as other people would, to see how it looks, now everything's just a tad different. There's a well-funtioning submit button at the top of every page, we really don't need more.
