Site Update: The New Mobile HeaderSite Update: The New Mobile Header4 days ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
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.
The New Mobile Web Header
A new header for the mobile website has just been released! Our mobile website header has been given a minor overhaul to be more mobile-friendly, and given a sleek new look to match.
Menu items have been updated for ease of access and use, providing a solid balance of clarity and functionality. Everything that was previously available through the menu accessed by tapping on the logo is still present, so everything you know and love is still one tap away.
The All New Urban HeadGearWorking with our overseas engineers, we've designed and built a technologically-superior piece of headwear which we're quite proud of. The new DeviantWEAR Urban Headgear unit is built from space-age materials which are clinically proven to block harmful and unwanted signals from affecting your brilliant creative mind.The All New Urban HeadGear6 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
This specific initial release unit has been shown, in over one dozen clinical trials, to significantly enhance the creative person's ability to simply be creative without interference from radio signals, television signals, and other unwanted airwaves which could dramatically deteriorate the mind.

Llama FAQs and Information● What exactly is a llama badge?Llama FAQs and Information2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A llama badge is basically exactly as it sounds, it is a deviantART badge in the form of a llama.
● How many people can I give a llama badge to?
You can give out as many llama badges as you wish, but you can only give one per deviant.
This means once you give a deviant a llama badge, you cannot give them a second one.
● How do I get llama badges?
The best way is to be an active member of deviantART. The more you interact with others, the higher the chance you will receive a llama badge.
You can also post comments here on our group page requesting llama badges as well or use llamatrade to buy llama badges.
● What is the purpose of llama badges?
They are just something fun for the deviantART community. They are a way to thank someone for a favorite, comment, critique, pageview,
and whatever else you can imagine! Th

Robert shot an action-packed short film called Two Scoops, starring twins Lola and Lucia who operate an ice cream truck by day and happen to also be monster-slayers. Fans contributed to the project by submitting films, Tweeting their ideas for super-weapons, creating the fiercest monsters, and sending in their photos to appear on Missing Person posters.
We're excited to announce that the collaboration is now complete! You can see the finished film right here, along with the best contributions from fans, and documentary footage to tell the story of the project.

What does "I've Seen It" supposed to mean?dA has released a statement about the new logo and branding here:
The new mobile app will be available December 10th.
:iconspyed: says: Down the rabbit hole.
Update: This badge is no more available. Looks like devart gave the last badge to SayuriIto on Dec 10, 2014 at 4:46pm and her badge is #160777. After that the Rabbithole game link redirected deviantART users to the deviantART Mobile website: http://www.deviantart.com/mobile/ .

Calling all beta testers, bug lovers and feature loving deviants.
I have exciting news! devBUG is looking for some new deviants to be Alpha Tester!

An Alpha tester is a bit like a Beta tester only they get to test out new features before Beta testers do.
So, what do alpha testers get to do?

dA still alienates gay community with prejudiceSince the beginning of this site, dA has been repeatedly criticized for its homophobic approach to art. Homosexual couples (specifically male-male representations because lesbians are hawt, guys) in particular have been repeatedly targeted by the site's admins for deletion, an occurrence so pervasive that one deviant, reapersun was able to hold an entire contest to attempt to illustrate the line of discrimination.dA still alienates gay community with prejudice4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You might say, "the site is simply prudish!" Not true. They have an entire section labeled "fetish". Pictures of women having intercourse with tentacle monsters? De rigeur. Buick sized breasts oozing buckets of milk? Fine. But two consenting adults (especially male adults) touching? Kissing? My GOD, what filth!
The newest and most blatant example of dA's skewed treatment of gay people is a new stamp by prosaix

CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it. For those of you eager to look at some boobs and hot male torsos, I'm afraid I won't be including any here .CEA Blog: Mature Content3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi

The Different Categories of Art TheftIn a particular art-theft report fiasco that my friend had to experience, I decided to clarify what it means to be an art thief. This is a hot topic it seems. Everyone's on a red alert for art thieves these days:The Different Categories of Art Theft4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
At thieves come in different forms and motivations.
An art thief is someone who posts another artist's work and gives PROBABLE CAUSE for others to potentially ASSUME that they were the -original creator- of the artwork.
There are four types of thieves that fall into this definition. Let's call them Type A ("Photobucket/Google Image") thieves, Type B ("Altering") thieves, Type C ("Trace/Copy") thieves, and the most malicious kind, Type D ("Identity Theft") thieves.
A Type A Thief (aka. "Photobucket" Thief):
Comes to DeviantART thinking it's like Photobucket or MySpace, and they post their personal favorite Google Search images because they want to show off their fav

Last month, the color-me-club held a coloring contest. For the first time in the club's history, we got a discouraging number of entries that were proven to be theft. People would take an existing contest entry, throw some hue/saturation wizardry on it, smear some dodge and burn, drop a spontaneous texture overlay on it, and attempt to call it their own thinking that the color-me-club is but a teeny-weeny #Group of novice digital artists.
Boy did they ever get their shit kicked in.
The fallout from disqualifying their entries and reporting them to dA staff is still descending. Yet enough time has passed from the contest's conclusion to make public my official
DeviantART Deleting AccountsThere appears to be a new rumour flying around in various journals and comments that deviantART will be deleting accounts. The information seems to be spreading using messaging similar to what is here:DeviantART Deleting Accounts10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
On 21 of may, deviantart will be deleting all accounts. Not plz accounts. accounts , But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on your deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that your not fake.
Thank you for listening
First, allow me to reiterate that there is no truth to this. DeviantART would never convey information this way and official information is always posted through hq
If you are being spammed with false information, feel free to hide and block the user and report them to the Help Desk.
So what will happen on May 21st? Happy you asked!
