Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update
Deviants were positive about the addition of the Watch button to deviation pages, and we're happy to report that there has been a considerable increase in deviants clicking to watch one another.
We received some great positive feedback on group deviations being split from individual deviations, and we also appreciate the concerns other deviants raised about the change. As we've mentioned in recent journals, we're exploring new ways to view content submitted by the people you watch, and the feedback regarding group deviations being split is helpful in further developing these ideas.
