The New deviantART Comments

Mon Jul 15, 2013, 4:03 PM


Improving Communication on deviantART

One of deviantART's strongest assets is the community's ability to bring self-expression into conversation, pushing the boundaries of creativity to a new level. Today, we've improved creative communication by launching a new way to comment on deviantART, with access to formatting, emoticons, and, for Premium Members, the ability to include artwork and files in your comments.



A Creative Approach to Conversation

Sta.sh Writer has been integrated into comments on deviantART in the form of the new "Add Media" button. As you may know, Sta.sh Writer allows rich text editing of literature and journal deviations on deviantART, and we are excited to expand this functionality to more areas of the site.

  • Add formatting to comments with the formatting toolbar!
  • The Emoticons tab of the sidebar gives you access to official emoticons, as well as community-created emoticons in the Chat-Friendly Emotes category.
  • Premium Members can add images to comments using the "Add Media" sidebar.
    • The Conversation tab shows deviations already included on the page.
    • The Sta.sh tab shows items in your Sta.sh.
    • The deviantART tab shows deviations from anywhere on deviantART. Up to five deviations can be included in a comment.
  • Easily switch between standard comments and rich-text comments by using the Add Media and Hide Media buttons.



Use "Add Media" when commenting to harness the power of Sta.sh Writer in your conversation.

Does being able to "Easily switch between standard comments and rich-text comments by using the Add Media and Hide Media buttons" mean that premuim users can include html images in their comments?

Hi there! Are you visiting from a mobile device, or are you on a computer? If you're visiting from mobile, it is deliberately disabled there, so as to not lag the mobile browsing experience. If it's missing when you're on a computer, then you'll want to file a bug report about it at the Help Desk. :)

I'm always a fan on new things on dA but not this... It kindof sucks that only premium members have this feature.. Other then that I'm sure this feature would be great.  I use it for emoticons, but even that is being shotty..
