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 In addition to the main games, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection also features every piece of downloadable content originally made available for both games, and the option to port save files from the previous console generations to the new ones.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

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.

  • The Work may originate in any visual medium but must be submitted as a single .PNG or .JPG file suitable to be adapted into an emoticon for mobile platform use.
  • Entries must be approximately 96 pixels in width by 96 pixels in height.
  • Entires must be original Works and may not use stock materials from others, although licensed brushes and textures are acceptable.
  • Other requirements and restrictions apply so please read the Official Rules carefully.

  • Overall Impact of the Work;
  • Technical and Artistic Skill.

Change Log

  • In the Prints Shop, if you searched a term that included quotation marks, they would be escaped. Fixed by Alisey

  • Old username symbols would appear in the Request Commission modal of the Commissions widget. Fixed by Alisey
  • Password fields in modals wouldn't work properly if your password contained a forward slash or back slash. Fixed by baclap
  • When including thumbnails in comments, if you include more thumbs than allowed in a single comment, the extra thumbnails will now automatically convert into links instead. Changed by kemayo

  • The API documentation uas been updated to better document the fields on recurring standard objects, such as deviants and deviations. Updated by justgalym

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?

If you believe that you are experiencing a bug or other problem you should bring the issue to our customer service area located at help

Comments left on profile pages  are easily missed and a poor way to obtain assistance.

Do not expect instantaneous responses; your bug report will enter a queue where it will wait for assistance and when you do receive a reply it will go to your email and not into your message center.

The Chatrooms have been really extremely unstable as of late. They need to be configured better for slower connections (an increased time-out time)
