Remember that deviation you faved way back when that has since gotten lost in the sea of your other faves? Now, all you need to do is search your favourites to find it!

The ability to search favourites, as well as search other deviants' favourites, has long been one of the community's most requested features – and it's finally here!

I have a question about Account Bans. At the time, I had an account which was :iconamythestshine: but I was underaged. 
I was offline for a while until I took over my cousin's old account. Now that I am above age, is it possible to appeal the account ban so I can go back to this account? :iconamythestshine:

Excuse me but how do I combine Group Deviation Stack back into the Deviation Stack? It makes more difficult to me checking the pics :(

Is there a way to combine that Group Deviation Stack back into the Deviation Stack? That was a feature I didn't need. I don't need two stacks of deviations coming from the same groups when one was working just fine for me. Is there any way Deviantart can stop forcing features on Deviants and start making features optional? Not all of us like these "Features" and some of us like things customizable.

hello, can i ask a question in here?

in the new ''exploration theme'' style for the thumbnail grid, you will remove both the artist's names AND the deviations titles for the sake of having ''bigger thumbnails'' in the thumbnail grid, in order for the site to match with the smartphone layout/style, am i correct?

if so, please consider that removing the artist's name will be only bad for the artists in question and it will reduce their pageviews/fame/support/faves from other people that will lurk the thumbnail grid.

also, it would make it really hard for people that view the thumbnail grid to distinguish which thumbnail in the grid is a commission/art-trade/adoptable/tutorial, and it would only cause alot of hassle/problems to lurkers/new members of this site that occasionally quick-view the thumbnail grid at a quick glance.

please consider keeping the artist's name SHOWN underneath the thumbnails in the thumbnail grid, even with the new exploration theme added in the site.

PS: please read & reply back to my comment.
sorry for the many words, i was just trying to show some problems/possible issues with the new thumbnail grid update.

It would be nice if at DeviantArt, you can place SVG files. They have an animation that can not be exported to another format.

Hey Danlev! I don't know if you had a huge part to play in it, but I wanted to say that I am VERY happy to see that survey about site updates and whatnot. I have been saying you guys should take surveys for a long time, and I really hope it will help you collect feedback from deviants that you can use. 

I also like most of what I'm seeing from the site simplification updates and the new thumb grid, so I just wanted to say thank you for those. I feel like the DA staff has been listening to the community a little more lately, and I hope it continues that way.

Just out of curiosity, though, is there any improvement planned for tags? Because right now you can't put spaces in, and I feel like I have to give one image eight billion tags to cover all my bases. (For example, #spn #spndean #spndeanwinchester #supernatural #supernaturaldean #supernaturaldeanwinchester etc etc )

Hi Danlev! A few days ago I was very opposed to the Site Simplifications started a Petition Opposing Site Simplification. Since I began that petition, I have learned a lot about the Simplifications and about Deviantart that I didn't know before.

A lot of people thought you ignored them, but I learned that you will reply to those who ask, :D and having you clear things up about the notes the other day makes me feel much better about the simplifications.

However, a lot of deviants (myself included) are still concerned that the upcoming layout of the website might look too mainstream and are worried it could take from the unique aesthetic of Deviantart and are worried it will take the 'deviant' out of Deviantart. When I first saw the proposals (I'm aware that they're not the finished UIs though) I though they look too much like something out of wordpress or tumblr. 

I was wondering if you could shed some light on the matter to help alleviate our concerns, as I'm starting to think its not as bad as we think it will be? :)
danlev Featured By Owner May 29, 2015
Hey TheArtFrog, as I mentioned in my other reply to you, the images we provided shouldn't even be considered "UIs" -- they're more a representation of how the information will be structured. The colors, design, style, font, etc, should be ignored and just look at how the information is structured on the page. We haven't finalized any designs yet, but we're sure it will be devious. ;)

We just wanted to share our progress with the community. Our goal with the redesign is to make the site easier to understand and use while encouraging more interaction between deviants (more interaction = more comments/favourites/watches for you). 

Next Wednesday, we'll be sharing some more progress around design that I think you'd be interested in. It's around the presentation of artwork. Keep an eye out for it! :)
