With over 1.5 million comments posted per day, deviantART's commenting system provides the backbone for fostering relationships across the globe. Whether mentoring one another, providing artistic support, or checking in with a friend, commenting is one of the site's most used and loved features.


To highlight this vital aspect of community interaction and provide more control around conversations, we’re proud to release the first in a series of improvements to comments.


Featured



The Featured comments option allows deviants to showcase the most meaningful or interesting feedback they’ve received — helping those comments stand out from the rest. When someone leaves a feature-worthy reply on one of your deviations, you can now highlight that comment from the pencil menu.


Featured comments on deviations are highlighted and denoted with a special label.


Edit



Whether it’s a flubbed letter or simple misspelling, embarrassing typos happen to us all. With the ability to edit comments, you can now avoid awkward follow-up explanations. Located in the pencil menu, the “Edit Comment” feature allows you to update a reply you’ve posted in the last 24 hours.


Edited comments are denoted by an “Edited” label next to the timestamp. Clicking the timestamp will display a log of changes made.


Hide



To withdraw a comment you’ve previously posted, use the pencil menu’s “Hide Comment” option. This will remove your comment from view, remove it from the Message Center, and prevent it from getting replies, effectively erasing the comment from conversation.

Comments can be hidden by their owner at any time — there is no time restriction on this feature.


Looking Ahead


The Featured, Edit, and Hide improvements are the first in a larger comments revamp still to come.  This update could include anything from up-voted comments to comment sorting, and much more. You tell us what you've always wanted out of a comment box! Revitalizing our comments system is the first step of many to elevate conversations and foster meaningful connections.



Get started!

Have you received a noteworthy comment on a deviation or Journal? Mark it as Featured and share the comment link here. We want to see the comments you value most, and what you feel is worthy of attention!

I am unable to hide any comments on my older deviations. Will it be resolved anytime soon?

I think this was a temporary issue that was fixed. Are you still running into the problem?

I think so. That's why I had to disable comments on one of my deviations after receiving a comment I didn't want to show.

Progress!

I would like to add to the comments below that when a user that posted the comment 'hides' it, it should disappear completely (get deleted), but when the owner of the page hides the comment, it should say 'Hidden by Owner' as it does now, to prevent complete censorship by... oooh, idk, let's saaay... art thieves?

Gotta love it when you run into users who's comment section is full of 'Hidden by Owner' and you recognize some of the artwork on their page that was made by other artists. Evil grin 
They know what they did and they are trying to hide it instead of fixing the issue.

One more thing, could You make featured comments stay on top of the comment list? Or make a separate setting for that sort of thing? Having certain comments always on top would be helpful.

Thanks!

P.S. Edited just for the fun of it :D

I'm happy about this but I never liked the fact that it never fully deleted the comment. I don't want some thing that says "Hidden by owner/commenter", I want it fully gone.

G.O.N.E. 

When I delete comment's on my profile it's looks like a big ugly mess. I hate it. :I
