Just curious, are fandom adopts accepted? Because I have a couple adopts that are BNHA-themed.
fenaru Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
fandom adopt are acceptable as long the design not similar to original. 
YagiMatsu Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay! ^^ Where will the fandom adopts go then?
fenaru Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Any folder that suit the category. If BHNA usually goes to humanoid folder. Other exampe, MLP-inspired adopt goes to equines folder, The Lion King-inspired adopt goes to felines folder. 
wolvykasu-adopts Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2019  Hobbyist Artist

Do you mean batch adopts? Or just one adopt with multiple attributes?

fenaru Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No prob^^ Thank you for reading.
Castillelia Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Super appreciate these...
Sometimes it feels like something could fit in a few categories or no categories...or just be really confusing and you end up putting it in the wrong one. xD
fenaru Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you!! Glad to know this guides helps. Maybe I shouldn't categories the auction or set price folder to make it more easier?
Castillelia Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm...I think it would make it easier, but do you prefer the sorting? If so, I think most people are used to having multiple categories (like you have them at) already, so it wouldn't be too big of an issue~

And I think you've got all your bases covered (in terms of inclusiveness of adoptable types)!
fenaru Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I like sorting but I also want to make easy for members. Yea, I think mostly covered. Thank you for feedbacks.

What's Next for Eclipse: LiteratureOne of the best things about DeviantArt is the incredible communities that have organically grown and supported one another throughout the site. A community that continues to grow in its artistry and passion is the Literature community. It's been hugely important for us to develop Eclipse with the Literature community in mind, and to shine a spotlight on both the writers and readers. There's still a lot we want to do to expand Literature on DeviantArt, but here are some updates we've made, and will be making, in Eclipse:Literature EditorOur new Literature editor provides an expanded and easier experience. You can now bold, italicize, underline text without HTML knowledge, and you can even add corresponding visual imagery or link YouTube videos. Literature ThumbnailsBased on your feedback, Literature thumbnails now include a preview of text so that deviants can get a sneak peek at what words lie in store! We'll also be further adjusting the look of the thumbnails by dimming the opacity of the letter to make it less distracting. Read more about it in one of our past change logs here.Literature Improvements (Coming Soon!)It is vital for text to be visible above the fold so that your art gets the spotlight it deserves, just like visual deviations. Literature text is fully open to be appreciated as a whole, and we also made sure the actions are visible at both the top and bottom of each Literature deviation. This way some deviants can fave and save for later, while others can read through the deviation, and then fave, comment, share after they've finished. The choice is yours! Thank you to the Literature community for being so open and vigilant with their feedback. We want to keep building and strengthening your Eclipse experience. Upcoming updates will be announced in @danlev weekly change logs as soon as they are live. Share with us in the comments how you'll be writing and/or reading Literature in Eclipse!Got something else on your mind?
