Here is my review this way to browser Gives new starting artist and not wellknown wamizing artist to be more exposure to the newcomers of deviantart giving them recognition to them. When I first used it  I was amazed on how simple it was to use this to browser commissions and I havetosay it was very simple to use . I haven't seenany problems with it unless you will put the popular artist on the list first since that wouldn't give people like me a chance to prove myself to be more known to more people worry. I  think this is a good thing to expand upon deviant art and hope this comes out soon. Please feel free to check my deviant art page check out my stuff and/or make a commission ,with that I think is a good end to my thoughts on this .

I very much dislike the new
I love the fact that it saves my submissions, as I have a computer that is prone to random crashing, but I absolutely HATE trying to go back to edit the information in the artist's comments. I get random HTML that gives me the dimensions of the deviantArt bulletpoint ( :blackbullet: ) and the HTML stops following dA's HTML format and goes to total HTML format. I wouldn't mind this if I knew what I was doing, but dA's HTML system seems a little different than what I'm use to. Its a pain to try to go back to edit something I saved before my computer crashed. Fix this and I will love the new

The commenting feature would be much more useful in a place where the items being commented on were public.
