80,217 Deviants Online
Home again home again by pjacubinas
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.

Change Log

  • We encountered and resolved an issue where deviants with certain ISPs were logged out of their accounts and unable to log back in.
  • Errors could occur when requesting a commission from a deviant through the Commissions widget, if your password had a forward slash or backslash. Fixed by baclap
  • For iPad users visiting the mobile website, the "Previous" button wouldn't work when browsing deviations. Fixed by baclap
  • Clicking on the "Add to Favourites" button before the deviation page finished loading would not trigger the deviation being added to your Favourites. Fixed by Alisey
  • Blocking a deviant would not consistently remove that deviant from your Watch List. Fixed by inazar
  • The Today page could take an excessive amount of time to load when opened. Fixed by yumeruby

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! While we asked about Status Updates last week, we're happy to announce that in the time since last week, the 1 millionth Status Update was posted!
  • In response to the Discuss topic, deviants said they use Status Updates for a variety of reasons, although primarily they use them for very short updates, or for sharing works in progress.
  • A few deviants noted using Status Updates to tell people about their commission status.
  • Some deviants made suggestions regarding the design of Status Updates, and said that Status Updates could stand to be more compact.


Notifications on Mobile

The "Notifications" tab on the DeviantArt Mobile App (pictured below) includes messages related to your account, including favourites and comments on your content, mentions, and new watcher notifications. This section is similar to's Message Center, but notifications are presented differently and ordered sequentially.

How would you like to see the Mobile App's Notifications feature improved to be more useful for you to go about your daily DeviantArt routine on mobile?
