deviantART Headquarters
On The 4thday by piethein21
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.

Change Log

  • Preview images weren't working for Film & Animation deviations, when shared to other sites. Fixed by baclap
  • It wasn't possible to change or remove one's tagline or artist bio from the mobile app. Fixed by justgalym
  • For a short period, Journal Skins were not properly restricted to Premium Members. Fixed by kemayo
  • Users who bought Prints without creating a DeviantArt account were unable to access their order history. Fixed by Alisey
  • The Sta.sh Writer toolbar was not aligned properly on the Write a Journal Entry page. Fixed by kemayo
  • Deviation images used in the DeviantID widget would not correctly link to their respective deviation pages. Fixed by outgoingcoyote

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update

  • In response to last week's Discuss topic, some deviants said that they would like to see improvements made to the submission process on the mobile website, such as making it easier to select a category. (It's worth noting that the Submit menu is currently hidden on the mobile website because a substantial amount of mobile users are using the site from older versions of operating systems, which don't allow for file upload.)
  • A few deviants noted that larger x buttons in the Message Center would make checking messages an easier process. 

Discuss!

Prints Services

Besides DeviantArt, what is your favorite website to use for their print services? What feature(s) in particular do you value on said site?

DeviantArt Presents: Borderlands The Handsome Collection Collection











Return to Pandora with the release of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. Now available in North America, this new release brings Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! to the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One, complete with fresh graphics and familiar faces.



Borderlands 2 focuses on four new Vault Hunters exploring Pandora as they attempt to overthrow the regime of Hyperion commander-in-chief Handsome Jack, where Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! focuses on Jack's rise to power. In addition to the main games, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection also features every piece of downloadable content originally made available for both games, and the option to port save files from the previous console generations to the new ones.



DeviantArt is home to a large, varied group of fan artists who have rendered their favorite Borderlands characters in their style. From Vault Hunters to NPCs, artists have taken Pandora's best and baddest and created a world of works that even Crazy Earl would be impressed by. Check out the art collection below, and be sure to grab your copy of The Handsome Collection!














































































































































































































 



 















Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the essential Borderlands compilation and includes the definitive versions of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, built specifically for next-gen consoles.

In our continuous effort to improve the DeviantArt experience, we publish weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback.

     

Our developers spent much of their time this past week improving DeviantArt's code and investigating new ways to effectively provide a better site experience. As a result, there aren't any community-facing updates in this update. Stay tuned for next week's update and we'll have more news for you!


However, an update has been made to the way deviations are shared on Twitter! When a deviation is tweeted, clicking on the image from the tweet page will redirect you to the deviation page rather than expanding inline on Twitter. Our hope is that this will increase the amount of traffic to artists' work.


Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update
  • Deviants mentioned a variety of features that they'd like to introduce new deviants to, in response to last week's Discuss topic, and some deviants went out of their way to explain features to newer users, demonstrating the kindred spirit we love from the community. 
  • Some of the most commonly suggested features were Chat, the Forums, and Channels.
  • Other features deviants suggested included Portfolio, Groups, and Sta.sh Writer.

Insidious: Chapter 3 Emoticon Contest

Wed Mar 18, 2015, 4:53 PM
To celebrate the release of the newest and darkest chapter in the Insidious story, DeviantArt and Insidious: Chapter 3 have teamed up to give you a unique challenge—create a new emoticon inspired by the Insidious series.Header-bg2 by TharBeVikings














DeviantArt presents Insidious Chapter 3 Emoticon Contest























To celebrate the release of the newest and darkest chapter in the Insidious story, DeviantArt and Insidious: Chapter 3 have teamed up to give you a unique challenge — help us create a new set of emoticons inspired by the Insidious series. Reach into the deepest recesses of your mind and submit a single digital drawing of a character from the Insidious movies, a creepy or spooky thing, or a completely original image. Whether you feature a Medium with a surprised face or a crying Lipstick-face Demon, we want to see what you can do!


One grand-prize winner will win two tickets to see Insidious: Chapter 3, $5,000 USD, and will have the opportunity to have their emoticon turned into a full set of emoticons that will be usable in the Kik Messenger App, used by 120+ million users!
































Insidious and Insidious: Chapter 2 showed us that our nightmares are more than just bad dreams. Now, in the third and darkest chapter of the series, you'll be taken back to the beginning—before the haunting of the Lambert family. You’ll be able to see Elise Rainer’s ghastly confrontations with the spectres as she helps the Brenner family through their paranormal encounters.






















Familiarize yourself with the Insidious series, and watch the Insidious: Chapter 3 trailer above. Also, consult the asset page for more information on the challenge.






Choose a character from the movies, a creepy or spooky thing, or a completely original image that can be converted to an emoticon. Submit your drawing in the form of a JPG or PNG that is approximately 96x96 pixels.





Submit your drawing to the contest category by using the Enter Now button below.





















































THE INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 EMOTICON CONTEST BEGINS AT 12:00 AM (PDT) ON MARCH 18, 2015 AND ENDS AT 11:59 PM (PDT) ON APRIL 12, 2015.

  • Password fields in modals wouldn't work properly if your password contained a forward slash or back slash. Fixed by baclap

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update!
  • Deviants were excited about the escape of the Runaway Llama badge!
  • In regards to last week's Discuss topic, deviants said that the Message Center was the most common start to their daily routine on DeviantArt.
  • Deviants who didn't mention the Message Center (or mentioned it as the second or third thing they did each day) said that they start off their day by browsing art, and then move to interacting with others via comments or Notes.

Discuss!

Hidden Gems

What useful features on DeviantArt do you feel newer deviants are less likely to be aware of? If you could introduce a new deviant to one or two lesser known features that you love, what would they be and why?

there's a journal being sent round currently saying:

"As of May the twenty first, deviantART will be deleting ALL  dA accounts. Not the plz accounts though. But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on you're deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that you are not a fake. 

Thank you for listening,

-deviantART staff "

Is this true or just a hoax someone thought would be fun to do?

This may sound mushy...but I am just grateful for the guys (and girls) that fix the problems and bugs that crop up in our website.  Even though these things happen, this is STILL the most efficiently and professionally social network out there.  It is my main one and will will continue to be so.  Thank you.

when I place a picture in my favorites, how come I have a problem eventually buying it.  I am interested in Celtic warrior type pictures and just can't seem to transfer them into my buy column.  Can anyone help me or am I doing it wrong?
