Stock and Resources Updates Feb 2013Heading Into 2013
We are well on our way towards the warmer part of the year for those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere, and whilst we shake off our winter blues and snow boots, our Southern Stockers have been wowing us with new beautiful stock and resources (whilst sweltering in the heat!)
The gallery cleanup is still going on, but with a reminder to be patient with us, we know its not easy but we have a very VERY big gallery and just a few people (mostly just Erin and myself) tackling the issue, but its not been forgotten or ignored. Erin and I are also very busy with home life as well
If you feel we've missed out on a sub category (sadly this is very likely right now as we concentrate our efforts on the most used/submitted to areas) please feel free to note us and point us in the right direction!

PLEASE NOTE: This is a limited Beta release and not all Beta Testers have access to these features at this time.
The site's navigation menu has been completely overhauled to make it easier to find what you’re looking for on the site. The new menu creates a sleek, organized layout that simplifies navigation and provides room for upcoming improvements and new features. Best of all, we haven’t removed any functionality – so what you know and love is still right there.
Everything related to your account is grouped together on the right side of the page.
The Shop, Submit, Profile, Message Center, Friends, and Favourites menus have retained the same drop-downs as before, and the Stick and Splinter menus that some users prefer are still available.
Undiscovered and What’s Hot have been separated from Browse (which includes Popular, Newest, and Search) to highlight and more clearly reflect their distinct browsing methods.
You can now customize your deviantART front page. Your last selected page — Activity Feed, Browse, What’s Hot, or Undiscovered — will be preserved each time you click "Home" or the deviantART logo.
When on Browse pages, the left column containing the search bar and category tree can be collapsed or expanded, which lets you filter options when you want them, and hide the options when you want to view the art without distractions. The column will retain whichever setting you prefer, so you can set it how you like.
The search bar previously located at the top of Browse pages has been moved to the left column, to reflect that it's specifically a search tool for deviations. The search bar that appears in the site navigation searches for deviations as well, but will also allow for additional search features in the future.
The Activity Feed is a new feature that displays recent activity of the people you're watching in an easy to scan feed. When browsing the Activity Feed, recently posted artwork, Journals, Status Updates (detailed below), Polls, Critiques, Forum Threads, and Collections from deviants you watch will display, letting you scroll through art and interact with them.
You can also share Status Updates and deviations from your Activity Feed, allowing you to easily promote artwork or Status Updates that you find interesting.
Apart from the content you already see in your Message Center, we’ve added Collections to the Activity Feed. Now you can discover artwork that’s being curated by the people you watch. You can edit what items show up in your Activity Feed at any time (including Collections) by visiting the Manage Friends page.
If you’d prefer not to have one of your Collections displayed on other deviants' Activity Feeds, you can visit the Collection Options area of your Collection and check "Disable watching". This is a new feature that has been made available to everyone today.
These features are live to Beta Testers, so feel free to give them a try! The new site navigation is visible everywhere on site, and you can visit the Activity Feed page or view the Activity Feed widget on your Profile Page to test it and Status Updates out!
Any feedback you have can be left in the comments on this article. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know!
