In that time, we’ve witnessed countless artists’ skill level evolve as they’ve honed their craft with the support and encouragement of the DeviantArt community. But that’s only the beginning.

Holiday Card Project 2018 Wrap-Up!
In December 2018, the #HolidayCardProject returned to celebrate its 11th year of bringing joy and good cheer to those in need.
With over 2,500 cards received from over 1,000 deviants in 44 countries, the project was resoundingly successful in spreading the love to patients all over. Our mailbox opened for submissions on November 7th, and by the following week, dozens of cards were coming to us almost every day, from the most intricate of traditional designs to the most innovative of digital creations.
Some of the many cards we received this year!

Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!‘Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house,
Not a deviant was clicking
On a touchpad or mouse.
Deviations were packed
In their boxes with care
In hopes re-designers
Soon would be there.
The deviants were nestled
All soft in their Profile
In hopes that a change
Would come soon with style.
They’d heard mysterious stories
From the Betas upstairs,
And they knew something special
Soon would be theirs.
New dark mode, new light mode,
Love Meter, and more!
New backgrounds, Profile headers,
More storage for Core!
One curious deviant,
Sketchbook tight in their grips,
Couldn’t wait one day longer,
They must see Eclipse!
They ran up the staircase,
Threw open the door,
Awoke all the betas,
And all of this for:
A glimpse of the new version.
A screenshot, a peek.
The clatter woke a beta,
Who started to speak.
“We’re working some kinks out
So it’ll be perfect when
It’s released to more soon.
New Badge - Bunny The Red PandadeviantART is hosting an ARG with AriBanks. If you solve the puzzle you can get this badge:
Find the puzzle at iblis and the comics here: https://www.deviantart.com/aribanks/gallery/
The badge has been hinted at here: https://www.deviantart.com/mattbmattb/status/15425156
Update: Many people have guessed that this ARG probably has something to do with the upcoming deviantART Eclipse: https://www.deviantart.com/danlev/journal/Join-the-Waiting-List-for-DeviantArt-Eclipse-771801397
Update 2: deviantART staff member MattBMattB wrote: 'Since we have to manually cross-reference, it may take a couple days to get the badge, but we're working to make sure that everyone who took part and solved the puzzles during the ARG (or solves the puzzles in the near future) will get it.'

Thank You for Your Feedback on Eclipse!
Last week, we announced the Beta launch of DeviantArt Eclipse — a completely redesigned version of DeviantArt that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. As a Beta release, Eclipse is still under development and only available to a small portion of the DeviantArt community. We use the Beta release to gather feedback that allows us to closely analyze deviant engagement and sentiment.
Over 4,000 deviants have already tried Eclipse and many have shared their invaluable and much-appreciated feedback. We’ve received nearly 1,700 individual Eclipse feedback reports — including 407 bug reports, 532 feature requests, and 748 pieces of general commentary. Our team has read through and triaged over 60% of these reports and has a goal of completing all of them in the coming week. Thank you to every deviant who has taken the time to share feedback. Whether you’re someone who provided a few words or several paragraphs of candid response, we appreciate the passion you have for helping us ensure Eclipse will meet the needs of our diverse community.
This Is Just the Beginning of Eclipse
As with most Beta releases, we launched Eclipse knowing there were bugs and highlighted a handful of the most obvious in our release journal. We wanted to release sooner than later so we can begin this journey together – gathering feedback and insights and applying it into our development, fixes, and improvements. Plus, as Beta Testers, this is what you signed up for! We need your deviant-expertise to help identify bugs — everything from baby bugs to elusive, exotic bugs.
Based on feedback, it’s clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the “green site.” It’s also clear there are some things that need to be improved. We expected this and continue to welcome your feedback — the good and the bad. We’re in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.
We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your ProfileEclipse provides new ways to personalize your Profile, including the ability to select Header Art for your page, linking to your social media platforms, and stating your commission status. However, with the removal of Custom Box, we heard, loud and clear, that deviants want more options to display content.We’re also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.We’ll be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, here’s one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipse’s current abilities to enhance her Profile.
Many deviants asked for the ability to showcase a single deviation on your profile. This is something we are already working on. We’d also like to clarify that, for the foreseeable future, Custom Boxes within Groups will remain as they are. Groups will eventually be redesigned with Eclipse in mind, but that process won’t be complete for many months. We’ll provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.
Addressing Your Other Top ConcernsThe new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, we’ve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report it’s cumbersome to remove notifications and it’s hard to remove notifications in bulk. We’ll be making the “remove” button more accessible so that you can one-click remove (or one-click save) just as you could on the “green site.” We’re still reviewing the experience of mass removing feedback and hope to have updates soon.We are currently working on issues regarding Header Art and avatars – specifically, their size and quality. Icon codes and plz accounts will be coming soon to Eclipse. :iconlaplz:The new text editor makes it easy to write Literature, with the option to add formatting and illustrations to your work. That said, the Literature experience in Eclipse is still a work in progress. As we mentioned in the Beta journal, using Literature and journal thumbnails is not yet finished. Literature thumbnails in the sidebar (under “More Like This”) are also not yet finished.Improving the display of Literature thumbnails is something our Product and UX teams are already actively working on improving.Having a “Show More” link on deviation descriptions and comments allows for a cleaner viewing experience; however, based on feedback, we've removed "Show More" from deviation descriptions and comments.While search in Gallery, Favourites, and Journals didn’t make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, it’s our aim to bring this functionality to Eclipse.Several deviants brought up that the ability to include thumbs by pasting a URL (or thumb code) is not currently possible. We mentioned this in the original announcement, but we want to reiterate this is not working as intended and will be implemented in the future.
Of course, this isn’t a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and we’ll be sharing more responses and updates — including bug fixes — in the weeks ahead.
Keep it Coming!
In the release process, things are constantly evolving as we gain insights and implement updates. Please keep in mind these updates can take time to get used to. As you continue to explore Eclipse, share your thoughts and concerns through the Eclipse overall feedback or bug report/feature request forms. While we encourage general discussion in the journal comments, using the official form allows us to triage and act on feedback in a quicker, more manageable way.
We also want to give a shout-out to the amazing deviants who’ve produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:
