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

Beginnings of Site Simplification

It’s no secret that DeviantArt is a complicated site. Have you ever invited a friend to DeviantArt, only to have them ask a bunch of questions about how to get started?

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update!

In response to the Discuss topic, some deviants said that they don't send art in Notes, but for those who do, the primary response deviants gave for doing so was to deliver commissions or parts of art trades. Outside of that, deviants said they send art in Notes when they're sending something to a friend that they think the friend may like, or when sending a Daily Deviation suggestion to a Community Volunteer.
