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.
More Like This: Now Open to Everyone!
In October, we launched More Like This to Premium Members, with an additional Limited Preview open to all deviants. During that time, we continued to test and improve it, with the help of everyone in the community who gave feedback or made use of our provided improvement tool. We're pleased to announce that as of today, More Like This has been launched to everyone. Many thanks to everyone who provided feedback and browsed through art to help us make the More Like This experience even better.
Some deviants reported errors switching from the legacy mobile site to the new mobile site. This is a known issue on our end, and we will have it fixed for you soon.
Feedback regarding using deviantART muro as a critique tool was entirely positive. Some deviants mentioned that they would like to choose which deviations they would enable this on, if implemented as a feature.
All of the suggestions included in last week's update were met with positive feedback.
Deviants would like for their portfolios to be styled for mobile devices. Suggested by alexettinger
Please note: With the holiday season upon us, we will continue to post the weekly Site Update, but in a condensed manner. There will be no Discuss topic in the next two updates. Full-length Site Updates will resume in the first week of 2013.
One of the features we offer is a way to store your work away from the public, via the Manage Deviations page. If you use or have used the storage feature, what are your reasons for storing a work? Do you unstore things often, or do you leave them in storage for an extended period of time? Do you use storage as a way to permanently remove work from your gallery without deleting it, or do you use it more for temporary changes?

You pause breifly and re-read the note in your hand. Everyone looks at Gamzee who stands with his stupid smile and walks towards you. He puts his hand out to you and you blush lightly. Rose pushes you up and into him. You look back at her and growl.
Gamzee takes your hand and walks you toward the closet. Everyone giggles at your blushing foolish face. "Remember 7 minutes." Dave says. When you and Gamzee are in the closet the door closes and everything goes dark.
Your eyes dialate and you realize Gamzee is staring at you. You blush more. "W-What?" You ask. "NoThEn." He says. He sits against the wall and you stand with your arms crossed. Gamzee grabs your hand and pulls you down next to him. You growl at him and loook away. "Yo MaN wHaT's ThE mAtTeR? HoNk HoNk." He says. "Nothing." You say.
You look over at him and flinch when you realise his face is close to yours. "YoUr A mOtHeRfUcKeN lIeR." He says. His eyes are a orangey red now. You scootch away from him a bit and quickly look away. His arms slolwy wrap around you and he pulls you onto his lap. He nuzzles your cheek and smiles. "Im JuSt PlAyEn." He says. You blush a bit shocked.
He kisses your cheek and you blush hard. You look at him and his lips meet yours. You blush moreand kiss back. He slips his long tounge into your mouth making you blush even more. His hands sneek up your shirt and to your breasts. You blush more but ignore his wandering hands. He pins you to the wall kissing you.
After 7 minutes of him feeling you up with you against the wall the door opens and Gamzee death glares Dave.Victory! Your saved! "Yo man. Other people are waiting." Dave says. Gamzee picks up as if he was holding a child and you wrap your legs around him. He walks over to his seat and sits smiling his usual clowny smile. "I lIkE yOu ______. YoUr An AmAzInG gIrL." He says. You blush and smile. "I like you too Gamzee." You say kissing his cheek.
*Picture>>> *Requested>>> *this is a Gamzee version of the GHB 1 that i made a while back, in here we're going 2 see how this 1 works out
You sat in the livingroom, stairing at the TV, blankly. You were slouching back into the sofa with your arms crossed, a grumpy look on your face. You sometimes would rivial the moewbeast, known as this 'Grumpy Cat', Gamzee layed upon the sofa that you sat on. His head layed on your lap as he drank some of his faygo, you watched as the (Main Character) of (Fav Show) was talking to the others that (He/She) trusted. You were so bored, looking down, you could see that your brother was in a daze. Or in other words, just stairing off into space. Sighing to yourself, you lifted Gamzee's head up, so you could stand. Laying him fully backdown, you head towards the main door of both your's and Gamzee's hive. Opening the dark colored wood, you than left as you closed the door behind you. You walked down the sidewalk, hands in you pockets. You were really bored, you kept walking until you ended up in the forest by accident. Looking around you, you than noticed where you were. Somewhere around in this area, you had buried your matesprite alive. You don't remember where exactly, at that time you were high off of super slime pie. That pie would make Gamzee all calm and shit, but it was oppoisite for you. When you would have some, you would become really murderous. At first, you would just like glare and scracth anyone, but the more you ate, the violent you would become. So now you won't even eat the soper slime pie, well, on certain occasions. You leaned against a tree, you than begun to count down from 3.
3... 2... 1...
"Hey ____bro, why did you Motherfucken' leave?" And there was your Brother, you knew that once you left or something, he was sure to follow you. No matter where you were. You could be stranned in the dessert, left to die and he would always managed to find you. You slightly smiled, and shrugged your shoulder,
"Just wanted to see how far I can, before you find me." You than slightly cocked your head to the side, Gamzee chuckled to himself and walked over to you. You didn't find anything funny, but for some reason he sure did.
"I just Motherfucken' want to know where your fucking going is all." He than wrapped his grey arm around your shoulders, you had also wrap your arm around his shoulders as well, a smile on your face.
You were so fucking bored now, well, it wasn't that boring. It was quite interesting actually, you had played the game along with your twin and you got to meet the trolls that you talked online with. You also got a chance to meet the 'Humans', they were very interesting. Right now you were walking down a hall, looking for your brother. You did not know where on this meteior where he was, you lost track of him when you fell asleep. But what got you was that when you woke up, your shirt was across the room along with your pants and you could taste faygo in your mouth with a little faint taste of soper slime pie. But now here you were, fully dressed and was looking for your brother. You checked almost all the rooms, but there wasn't anyone, the place was also eerily quite. But you pushed forward, you faintly smell death in the air. The more you advance, the more you saw different colored blood on the walls. This reminded you a little about the history you learned about Gamzee's Ansecter, the way he would paint the walls in other troll's blood. You lightly shudder. But you carriered on, you stopped when you heard faint honking in the background. The sound kept getting closer, the source of the honking was now derectly behind you. You turned around, as you did, there was nothing there. You raised a brow in confusion, but something hit you hard, upside the head. Causing you to fall and groan in pain, you could feel your eyelids begun to droop. Taking a quick look up at the person that had hit you, you saw that it was your brother. He had a wicked grin upon his face, his facepaint was smeared an colorful blood layed upon his form. Your eyes begun to close, sleep taking you in.
Your eyes slowly opened, you saw your twin brother sitting infront of you. He still had that grin on his face, you than tryed to move, but you were tied in rope and you had ducktape covering your mouth. You weren't able to speak nor move,
"________," Gamzee reached his hand forward and begun to strock your black locks of hair,
"I would like it Motherfucken' much, if you stayed here and wait. Big Brother has a job to do." Gamzee than stood up and walked over to the door, he opened it and slightly turned to you with his hand on the doorknob,
"I want you to a Motherfucken' good boy until I get fucking back. Okay? Alright." With that he lift you in the room, the sound of the door locking filled the air. You grumbled as you struggled in your binding, after a while you soon gave up. You hated how you couldn't get the bindings off your hands and feet, you sighed in fustratsion. You couldn't do anything until your crazed brother gets back from doing what ever he was doing.
ok, so I was rereading The Titan's Curse for the millionth time when I stumbled across this paragraph.
"As he said that, skeletons erupted from the ground. There were twelve of them, one for each tooth the General had planted... these were growing flesh as I watched, turning into men, but men with dull gray skin, yellow eyes, and modern clothes"
Twelve humanoids... gray skin... yellow eyes...
yeah... you can just ignore my pathetic ramblings now...

If you haven’t heard yet, Marvel is branching out quite a bit lately and introducing a bunch of new characters to their roster. One of whom is a Muslim teenage girl who takes up the mantle of Ms Marvel.
Necessary Background Info If you’re like me and don’t follow 100% what’s going on in DC or Marvel comics right now, some of the events in the story come across unexplained. So here’s a quick little explanation for the main reason of how Kamala gains her powers.
During the end of the “Infinity” storyline, a Terrigen Bomb was detonated in Earth's atmosphere during the Inhumans' fight with Thanos, releasing Terrigen Mist upon the planet. This caused anyone who was a descendant of an “Inhuman” to develop powers of their own.
Kamala Khan In Ms Marvel #1 (part of the All-New Marvel NOW! Point One series), we follow the exploits of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager born and raised in New Jersey. Kamala exists in a confusing world. She sees white people as “normal” and her own family as being “abnormal.” She wants to fit in to the world she was born into (i.e.: America) but her family wants her to remember her heritage, which is often dismissed or is completely misunderstood by all Kamala’s white friends. She’s also a bit of a social geek, preferring to hide up in her room and write fan-fiction of the Avengers.
One day Kamala disobeys her parents wishes and sneaks out to go to a “meathead” party. The party sadly doesn’t go over well when she’s tricked into drinking Vodka. On her way home from the party the aforementioned Terrigen Mist sweeps through the city, causing her to pass out and daydream of her idol Carol Danvers (aka: Ms. Marvel). In the dream Kamala wishes she was just like her, to wit Ms Marvel says “be careful what you wish for” before disappearing. Upon awakening, Kamala discovers that she’s been transformed into Ms Marvel. However, despite looking conventionally attractive with white skin with blond hair, Kamala realizes that she still doesn’t feel like she fits in. And that’s where our story begins!
Impact This single story has been so successful that it’s going in for a 3rd printing already. Not only is the art appealing, but the writing and overall direction is spot-on. Kamala is a fun and enjoyable character to read and sympathize with, and her powers reflect her insecurities but also her strengths. The critical reception of this storyline has been overwhelmingly positive, especially from the Muslim community. Not only does it add a new batch of POC to the Marvel line-up, but it does so in an unobtrusive way. The Mrs Marvel you all know and love still exists in this universe, Kamala just has the ability to shapeshift and look like her. It adds a much needed new perspective to the Marvel world and all I can say is “about damn time!”
I strongly recommend it if you can find it. There’s usually a digital download for between $2-$3, so it should be pretty easy to find and obtain. Especially through Marvel’s new in-phone apps.
