Site Update: Premium Content Platform

Thu Jul 12, 2012, 10:58 PM


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.

What's New
 


    DeviantART is proud to announce our Premium Content Platform — providing the ability for content creators to become sellers and generate real earnings by making digital files of their high-quality work available for download. Sellers are able to set their own prices while retaining 80% of all revenue earned, and buyers are able to quickly get the things they want with the satisfaction of supporting the artists they love.



      Every year, San Diego Comic-Con hosts a gallery of artists in what's known as Artists' Alley.  And, for the second year in a row, it's with great honor that deviantART is proud to sponsor the Alley!  For those of you unable to make it to San Diego, allow us to paint a picture for you!

      Your Feedback
       
        In last week's Site Update, we asked you about how you feel about the way deviantART gathers member feedback.
        • Some users like the way we gather suggestions currently, as it ensures that staff interacts with the community. Others would like to see a more unified means of gathering feedback/suggestions. "There's three very different places to suggest things, not including individual messages to staff members" neurotype pointed out.
        • In response to the emoticon legend suggestions from last week, Satsumo mentioned several other suggestions for improvement.
        • Kat-Anni and several other members mentioned that they'd like to see a public list of suggestions that are being considered (or not considered).
        • KinnoHitsuji brought up several Group suggestions, including being able to organize affiliates, alphabetizing gallery and favourite folders, and being able to view a list of Groups a user is a member of when submitting a new deviation.
        joannastar created a mockup of how the deviantART Visual Suggestions gallery could be improved by adding an "I support this" button on deviations.

        Our new Premium Content Platform, which is being rolled out to members over the next several weeks, allows artists to sell  high-quality content — everything from comics or stories for download, to high-res files like .PSDs, textures, tutorials, brush packs, and more!

        If you've sold your content in the past, or are planning on doing so now, what type of content are you interested in selling? Our Platform is in Beta and we will be continuing to upgrade it, so we'd like to know what types of content members are most interested in so that we can better support them.

        Is there ANY WAY to freaking turn off that stupid Drag and Collect button off?! It keeps blocking the art, and 8 times out of 10, it's ALWAYS over the FACE of some artwork and it's driving me CRAZY!! ( EVEN WHEN I ZOOM IN. It's ALWAYS there!! ALWAYS IN THE WAY!! D: )

        Not only that, but often times it will get stuck, so when I hit the Back on my browser to go back to my message center, Drag and Collect button is STILL THERE.

        Seriously, DA, PLEASE disable that. Or put it somewhere else. SOMEWHERE NOT ON THE ART!! D:

        Aaagh!

        First time user of Sta.sh. Tried uploading an image as instructed to do...clicked the upload button. Tool bar at the bottom left of my screen says the upload is done but the sta.sh upload bar is not filling and the sta.sh icon is circling and circling ...waited and waited...nothing happened. This was an upload from my PC nothing out of the ordinary. Why isn't this working?

        I'd like to point out something that needs to be fixed in sta.sh. When I changed the skin of the journal I was writing, all of the text I had written disappeared, and when it saved there was no way to get it back. Could you please fix this? Or maybe can you give us an option not to autosave so if a mishap like this happens again, I can exit and open again or revert it to the last savepoint?

        Hey there! That sounds like a bug, if you could file a ticket at the Help Desk about that, they'll be able to get it looked at. :]

        You want a surefire way to improve the deviantART experience, then could you please enable an option to either let us set certain Gallery submissions to not allow faves for whatever reason they may have, or let us selectively unfave a fave someone makes on one of your submissions if we so wanted. For example, this can be done to encourage (and enforce) getting people to fave a like submission on the original artist of said picture who drew something for someone and that someone wants to artist to get all the faves...or vice versa.
