New! The Sta.sh sidebar now gives you direct access to community-created emoticons! The Emoticon tab of Sta.sh Writer's sidebar has been updated to display both official emoticons and recently popular emoticons created by community members. Both sections have been given "Show more" buttons, so that you can explore either section in addition to searching for a specific emote using the sidebar's search box.
Some of the most highly requested features for the Journal submission page have been present in Sta.sh Writer for some time, such as rich-text formatting and a formatting toolbar. With Sta.sh Writer's advanced capability added, writing a Journal becomes even easier than before. All of Sta.sh Writer's tools are available, and because the journal is being created and submitted from the Write a Journal Entry page, creating a journal, adding thumbnails, and submitting a journal can all be done from one page, in one step.
In addition, because of the inclusion of Sta.sh Writer, Journal drafts can be saved to Sta.sh, and then brought back into the Journal page at a later time with the use of the "Open Draft" option in the File menu. This gives deviants the chance to create Journals regardless of constraints, making the feature more inclusive.
