DeviantArt Is Switching To HTTPS

Thu Aug 10, 2017, 10:57 AM by danlev:icondanlev:


Starting today, DeviantArt is completely switching over to HTTPS. You’ll notice that the URL in your browser bar will soon begin with “https” rather than “http.” This means our pages will be delivered over a secure, encrypted channel.

This change will be rolling out to all deviants over the coming days.

While DeviantArt had implemented HTTPS on sensitive pages -- such as our login and shopping cart pages — many years ago, it’s overdue that we extend HTTPS to the rest of the site.

Learn more about HTTPS

Some Notes for Developers of Journal Skins and Profile Customizations

If you develop your own Journal Skins, or any sort of profile customizations or browser extensions, please note that only HTTPS images will be served on DeviantArt. If you’ve uploaded your Journal Skins to DeviantArt’s Journal Skins category, you won’t need to make any changes.  If you have a custom Journal Skin that you’ve made on your own account (or any custom browser extensions) that includes images on an insecure site, those images will no longer be displayed. To fix this, you can upload your images to Sta.sh, or any other image hosting platform that offers HTTPS.

HTTPS has become a standard on the Web, and we’re happy to make our part of the Web a safer and more secure place.

Will Net Neutrality Survive?

Tue Jul 11, 2017, 9:00 PM by danlev:icondanlev:


The FCC Wants To Destroy It.


Battle For The Net - Tomations by falcont


Today, DeviantArt has joined hundreds of sites across the web to fight for net neutrality. July 12th is a coordinated day of grassroots efforts across the net to bring attention to the shadowy efforts of powerful cable and telecom industry forces to do away with net neutrality — a rule that protects open and equal access to the net for all publishers.

Without net neutrality rules that create an open and fair playing field for all users on the Internet, there will be economic censorship with the rich publishers paying Internet providers to be in the fast lanes with the rest of us throttled down.

WHY WE'RE FIGHTING

The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, extra fees and discrimination in favor of the rich publishers who can afford to pay for the fast lane

The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It's what makes it so vibrant and innovative—a place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas with a level playing field for all kinds of content. Without net neutrality, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider gets paid to put in front of you by powerful corporate media interests.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

  1. Send a letter to the FCC & Congress 

    It’s easy! BattleForTheNet has supplied a way to automatically reach the FCC and your representative in Congress. Use their messaging or write your own!

  2. Spread the word: Share a net neutrality deviation on social media and encourage your friends to join the protest at battleforthenet.com.

  3. Get the word out by sharing your net neutrality art using the #BattleForTheNet tag. Make a statement with your art and send it to the FCC and Congress.

  4. Educate yourself and your friends: Watch some of the great videos on the BattleForTheNet site or review this podcast from Mozilla.







PRIDE by Rumiiya


Every year, June is celebrated as LGBTQ+ Pride Month across the globe. We asked the DeviantArt community to contribute artwork for one of the six colors of the Pride flag.

Over 10,000 artists contributed art. A few weeks later, we created a Profile Pride flag made with some of the art you contributed, and we featured others in our Pride video as well as on DeviantArt’s social media channels.

Flag by danlev

We ran Pride live streams with TsaoShin (watch recording), SirWendigo (watch recording), and Laovaan (watch recording). 

We’re completely overwhelmed and heart-warmed to share that over 110,000 flags have been added to deviants profiles across the site — and each day, thousands more are added.


Based on suggestions we’ve received, a button has been added to the Pride flag Profile widget that lets you easily browse all entries that were submitted, showcasing all of the Pride artwork for months to come.

While June has ended, our pride is not. The profile flag is here to stay, and you can still add it to your Profile by pressing the “Edit Profile” button and adding the Pride widget.

Hey, danlev... I apologise for mentioning you in so many comments over the past while. I do hope you understand that the only reason I call you is because the people I've had run-ins with were either trolls, art thieves or a bit of both. Again, I apologise for the inconvenience.

Have a nice day. :)

Heya. Thanks for bringing these things to my attention. 

If you see someone posting someone else's artwork, the best course of action is to contact the original artist so they can submit a DMCA takedown request to us. It's relatively simple -- they just fill out this form.

If someone is bothering you, you can use DeviantArt's blocking tools. If you think they're doing things against our community guidelines, you can report them to our team.

I don't work on the Help Desk team, so I don't have the abilities to take care of situations like that. However, if they're a blatant spammer (like a fake account made entirely for spamming, I can take care of that for you, but for everything else you'll need to contact the Help Desk.)

Thanks for replying. I will do that in the future! I just want to make sure everyone is feeling okay on DA. :)

Also, the newbie thing is going great, at the moment, thanks for selecting me to help welcome them! It's a good idea, and I'm already firm friends with a few of them. :D

Anyway, I'll see you around! :)
