- New Site Navigation: With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What's Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look.
- Today Page: The Today page is the place to start your day. It's the pulse of the DeviantArt community — the new human and dynamically powered newspaper for the community that reflects the stories inside of DeviantArt as they pertain to art, fandom, pop culture, and world culture.
- Watch Feed & Status Updates: The Watch Feed creates a sequential stream of activity from your watchlist, including deviations, Journals, Collections, Status Updates, and more. Status Updates let people share quick updates about what they’re working on or what inspires them. Find an awesome deviation? Share it in your Status Update.
- Improved Collections: You can now watch Collections, delivering you a custom stream of daily inspiration to your Watch Feed. Collections are now visible on deviation pages and tag pages, giving curators more exposure. Become a curator and create Collections of artwork around topics or genres you love.
- Tags: Tags create landing pages around topics — making it easier to discover related artwork, bringing together artists and art appreciators, and forming communities around common interests. As DeviantArt grows and creates new ways to discover great content, we believe tags will play an important role in better surfacing artwork.

Your FeedbackThank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us.
- Responses to the Discuss topic varied, though in general deviants were positive about taking part in art challenges of most kinds.
- Generally deviants value daily challenges for how they push you to create quickly without being intimidating as far as quality level goes. By the same token, deviants like weekly and monthly challenges because the challenges push them to improve at their craft while creating.
- As part of the release of the new Today page, art challenges are now present on the DeviantArt homepage! You can get started by checking out the Horrorscope Challenges. What timeframe would you prefer to see, when taking part in these challenges and challenges in the future?
- For deviants who responded saying that they don't take part in art challenges, the main reason given was lack of time to participate.
