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


CSS3 Options for Journal Skins


Additional CSS options for Journal Skins have been released! Journal Skin designers can now use the transform, transform-origin, transform-style, and transition attributes when coding their Journal Skins, allowing for more dynamic designs than ever before.

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us:
  • Deviants were generally positive about the change to the mobile deviation page. Some deviants disliked the absence of the "Remove from Messages" button; it has been returned to the top of the deviation page.
  • Feedback regarding the integration of Verold embedding was positive.
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied, though there were common points of agreement between members. Several deviants mentioned organizing their Collections by medium or by fandom, depending on the purpose of the Collection.
  • Some deviants said that their Collections were to showcase artwork to other artists, while others mentioned their Collections being for personal organization. A few deviants mentioned using Collections for both.

Thursday: Collaborations Reminder!

Thu Apr 17, 2014, 6:27 PM


Hello, wonderful deviants! I hope you're all having a happy Thursday! 

We do not have a new contest this week because the PremiumMembers Collaboration Contest is still going on! Entries are due this upcoming Tuesday, so make sure to post your deviations before then.

In case you missed it, here are the rules: 
  • Join together with another deviant to create a deviation, either written or visual. When the deviation is completed, include a thumbnail or link to it in a comment on the contest journal (located here).
  • Any medium is acceptable. If you decide to go with literature, please limit it to 1,000 words, or 20 lines, if poetry.
  • Deviations should fit within the general theme of "Magic." This can be taken in many ways, so be creative!
  • Five teams who take part will be selected to win 800 Points each! Points will be split up between the team members evenly. Winning entries will be selected on creativity and overall impact.
  • At least one member of each team must be a Premium Member in order to be eligible.
  • All entries must be in Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles time.

Not sure who to collaborate with? A ton of people have already commented on the contest journal looking for a partner, so you can head there to find a teammate!

Good luck, deviants! I can't wait to see what you come up with. :happybounce:
