Update to the Deviation Page

Tue Sep 10, 2013, 1:39 PM

During the past month, we've been testing a number of changes to deviation pages. As the tests were ongoing, we monitored performance and community feedback, allowing us to make adjustments and improvements along the way. Thanks to such feedback, we've further improved the deviation page and have just released the latest updates sitewide.

What's New

  • More From This Artist has been made more prominent! Thumbnails in the More From This Artist section have been made larger and are now based on an advanced algorithm that will surface work that is more relevant to the art currently being viewed, helping to bring more attention to you and your art.
  • More from deviantART results (formerly titled More Like This) appear beneath More From This Artist. 
  • The right sidebar of the deviation page has been visually uplifted, with each section of the sidebar being given a clearer heading and given a cleaner overall appearance. In addition, the background color of the sidebar has been changed to help distinguish between the main section of the page and the sidebar.
  • The Edit and Delete buttons have been moved near the top of the sidebar, appearing just beneath the Share Buttons for easy access when modifying your deviations.
  • All buttons in the sidebar have been given an updated styling, making them easier to find than before.

Moving Forward

We are going to continue evaluating the performance of the deviation page, with the long term goal of increasing traffic to you and your art. This change was made to launch the aspects of the new deviation page that performed well, but it is one step in a much larger process toward creating a better performing deviation page.

While we continue to monitor how these changes perform, we will also further think through the areas of the deviation page design that were tested and performed poorly, with the intent of better implementing changes to benefit your work. In the meanwhile, your continued usage and feedback will help us to create a better deviantART.

More From This Artist is a great idea, but I'm having trouble with the "advanced algorithm". I do varied forms of art like photography and pixel art, but it happens rather often that a picture of e.g. a flower has pixel characters next to it.

I like it considerably better this way.
The deviations ' look ' much better
and I like the changes to the buttons.
But the favorites and download buttons
bother me , as it does many others.
Other than that , it's good enough for now.
Btw , I love the "idea" of MLT , But as it
stands it's horrendous. Isn't there any
way to sort these ?
With all of the brilliant minds we have here.
Why don't we have a Contest to figure out
the best way to fix the MLT problem ?  Or ,
at least , something to make it better.

The 'More from this Artist' change is so much better. :thumbsup:

Now if you can only stop the inflation art and Sonic the Hedgehog art showing up in thumbnails in the 'More from Deviantart' section, that would be a huge relief (Almost all
my fan art is Elder Scrolls art. I hate having two completely unrelated subjects showing up next to my submissions. Moreso because I happen to hate both inflation and Sonic art. Ugh ...)!

Loving this new look! Thanks for putting the artist's own works first with those thumbnail sizes! :D

I have to say I LIKE this update and I especially like the "More From This Artist" button, it's allowed me to stay searching where I want to search and allowed me to see far more from specific artists letting me see more of their works instead of just a few. :D :thumbsup: :thumbsup: to this update, thanks for doing something RIGHT for once in your "bettering" of the site. :D :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :D

I think this update is actually a good update!

My only problem--why is the Download button bigger than the Favorite button? I think it's just begging for someone to repost your art instead of faving it. Not to mention that I keep hitting dowload by accident!
