The Upcoming Thumbnail GridThe Upcoming Thumbnail Grid4 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On DeviantArt, your deviations are paramount, and we want to present them in the best way possible, even in thumbnail form. Over the past few months, we've been working on a new thumbnail grid that maintains the integrity of your deviations, no matter their dimensions or content types. Our goal is to be better at displaying art than any other site on the Internet.
Problems We’re Solving
We can do better than the current thumbnail grid, which includes uneven or irregular gaps between deviations. These gaps don't have any visual rhythm, causing your eyes to jump all over the place. Some content types, including literature, journals, pixel art, and emoticons, don’t look ideal. Our new grid focuses on fixing these issues while modernizing the look and feel of DeviantArt.
Below are some concept designs that represent one avenue we’re exploring. (These are works-in-progress and not final. Also note that the category menu

Just a little while ago, we posted the latest Sta.sh updates and asked you for more feedback. Now, in this update, you'll find all the feedback from those 500+ comments gathered into the Known Issues section below, just after the Change Log, which will tell you about some brand new features launching today, as well as all the bugs fixed since the last update.
The last update was all about Sta.sh, and there are some pretty big Sta.sh announcements this time too, but this update features any changes that have been made to deviantART, Profiles, Messages, Sta.sh, everything!
Many have asked for the ability to share a whole stack of Sta.sh files, as well as just one at a time. Well now you can! In any stack on your Sta
That Pesky Percieved DefaultI always marvel at how much of a learning experience this DA page can be. In many ways this is like an anthropological field study where a perfect random sampling seems to present itself in various ways for scrutiny and observation.That Pesky Percieved Default4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What always baffles me and makes me laugh is the male of our species. How times have progressed and yet how totally archaic they have stayed. Technology has advanced and yet instead of refining and polishing our species to some enlightened Star Trek type of society it is in fact proving to be the ultimate weapon of the classic, monosyllabic, bonehead( Technology as an instrument of human de-evolution would be a great study too)
Yes folks I am a girl but my sexual default setting is not set to far left corner of the dial at "Penis". I am amazed that in this era of supposed sexual freedom, and liberation that the perception is still that strict heterosexuality is the absolute and only norm. Perhaps we have the bible to blame for that with that old chestnut kn
The Perks of PrettinessSo I just got into a nasty argument with a friend who accused me that my life was easy and non problematic simply because I am "pretty" and "white". I am floored by the presumptuous nature of people when it comes to individuals who appear to be white and hence instantly "priveleged".The Perks of Prettiness4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here is the truth. I have worked and supported myself since I was 17, I got my medical education in Europe for free but I came to the US and got my other diploma here and paid full price as a non resident non citizen, I was not eligible for loans, my whiteness or sexy ass did not pay my bills or my tuition. No I worked three jobs and paid taxes and never got one red cent from the government.
Oh and the whole "white" claim? Well I am half French but I am also part Japanese amongst a few other things. Increase the Japanese by a few percent and I would have as much claim to being an "ethnic minority" as the President of the USA has. How is that for a spoiled white girl who cruised by on her looks?
I am inf
