New Core Feature: Live Notifications

Thu Jun 9, 2016, 12:03 PM by danlev:icondanlev:

Live notifications are a new Core Member-exclusive feature that shows you real-time activity on your account from anywhere on the site. Get notified the moment you receive a new comment, favourite, watcher, note, llama, or even when another deviant visits your profile. This new feature makes it easier to stay on top of your activity and keep in touch with friends, fans, and clients.

All "feedback" notification types (comments, replies, mentions, favourites, etc.) will appear as live notifications, as well as notes. To prevent the average deviant from being overwhelmed, activity from people you watch, such as deviations and journals submitted, will not send notifications.

The profile visitor notification works just like the “Recent Visitors” widget on your profile. As always, you can opt-out of this feature by tapping the “Friends” icon on the header and change your status to “Invisible.” This will prevent your username from appearing on these notifications and the recent visitors profile widget.

Live notifications can be disabled under General Account Settings.


In addition to live notifications, your notification counts on the site header will now update in real-time.


Try out live notifications, browse ad-free, and gain access to other features when you upgrade to Core.

From now until June 16, 2016, when you buy a three-month Core Membership, get an additional three months for free!

Or become Core now.

With live notifications, a new Core Member-exclusive feature, you can see real-time account activity from anywhere on the site. Get notified the moment you receive a new comment, favourite, watcher, note, llama, and more.

Why doesn't it work?

Hello. I just wonder. When will dA team bring the "monthly fee" option back? I prefer a monthly fee over 3 months fee, personally.

I guess this explains how some core users who need to keep their profile clean know who's the spammer in their profile :/

Forums and all decent services have the option to receive notifications by email when you receive messages from members.

DeviantArt doesn't offer this basic and common sense feature even to Core members...  too bad.

Still have to catch up with the decent services of the 21th century.

It stopped working for some reason on mean I won't show anything live any more.
TERABIZLX Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2016
This should have been a feature for everyone, core or not. Its pretty dumb in my opinion.

Now if only I could download Ad Block through my game console...:icontyepper:

too expensive! :( (Sad)

More Facebook. Next up: Copying the blue and white color theme.
In all seriousness, it's an interesting feature. How good or bad it is time will tell.

I just don't understand why it would be core exclusive. I mean, yeah, more money, but seriously? 
Hamayuuki Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2016  Student General Artist
Yeah, it doesn't make sense how before I got core I pretty much got the same thing on my phone for free, but it's a paid feature on a web browser :/

Please help !

great feature!
PrimrosePrincess Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't agree with this being limited to core members only, but it's a cool feature nonetheless!
raberbagirl Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
How obnoxious. As if we needed yet more distractions on this site. I'd already resolved to never pay for Premium/Core/Whatever again because of the stupid "More Like This" feature, and now it's no longer just a protest, I don't even want Premium anymore.
TheArtFrog Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2016  Student General Artist
While I don't agree with all the changes on the site, I must admit I'm loving this one! :D
The small window on the left is very handy indeed!

Thanks for this feature!
Aloubell Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My live notifications stopped working...idk why...?
BLPH Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016   Digital Artist
Interesting feature! I really like the live notifications; not too large and, let's be honest, everybody likes receiving instant feedback :D

Out of curiosity, are you going to extend the notifications to make them display outside of dA? I'm referring to a feature such as Web Push notifications in Firefox which lets you see them without having a dA-page active. I guess I'm not the only one but I tend to keep dA open in one tab and have work open in a different one. Hence I rarely see those feeds happening. Would be cool if you could look into that direction as well! :)
annoyinglizardvoice Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016
I'm glad this one is a core exclusive because that means I can avoid it completely.
Faxy-Fox Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016
Because this is simply something you cannot give to EVERYONE for free?! For fuck sake.. I would love that sort of stuff for free. But no, I've got to fucking pay for it. Wow... Really?
Smo-l Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really like this feature. Others may be complaining, but I still enjoy it and it is very helpful. 
MlENSHAO Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016
you know, with the constant pop-up messages i get from deviantart about adblock, as well as all of these notifications regarding free premium membership, it goes to show how much they don't care anymore. once upon a time, deviantart was mostly about community and just sharing art with people. now it's just yet another website that has been overtaken by money and greedy people. while i do understand that this is what happens to any popular website, it's still a shame to see it happen.

Well said
MelMuff Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I guess dA doesn't want my money. LOL I was willing to give it to them but for a reason I'm not even sure about, they are denying me to extend my membership and telling me they don't want my money. Anyway, I think this is the last straw. I was very upset when they raised the price a year ago and I'm still mad about that a year later. Then this same promo came along during Christmas. I was able to buy one but then I wanted to buy it a second time and dA denied me. Now they are denying me again. So when this promo comes again, I won't even bother trying. Most likely dA will come up with another stupid reason for denying me. At least I get to save my money. I have an event on Facebook that I would like to promote so I think I will be using the money I was going to spend on this on that instead. Congrats dA for failing me.
DINOCHAIN5AW Featured By Owner Edited Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
 I got notified 8 or 6 times to buy this shit. God damn DA is desperate af.
Also I hate the fact that DA wants you to pay for features that are free on many other websites.
And honestly I wish DA would listen to the community more often and also take care of the many problems in it as well.
My notifications looks weird to me and I'm a mobile user. So instead of holding my phone straight I now have to hold it sideways and replying like that is harder for me. I liked the old version better they were centered and didn't hurt my eyes having to squint
BunnysteeleStephanie Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It sound Kuru
pearwood Featured By Owner Edited Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist Photographer
Now that I've used this for a few days, the live notifications are working well. I particularly like the live updating of the top right status bar.

MelMuff Featured By Owner Edited Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Well I don't think this is fair. After all the hard work to make the payment on my credit card and it goes through in time only to be denied because of this:

There was an error in your submission.
  • Your Core Membership does not expire until 2017-02-17 12:52:15. Please come back to purchase the rebilling subscription within 6 months of your Premium Membership expiration.
You have an existing pre-paid Core Membership. Without this special offer, your next payment will be in 8 months.

Not fair at all. :(
