So. I just turned eclipse on bc Im a beta tester and i can


okay sooo. There are some things i like.

some things I do not like


Pros:

+looks clean

+no more pastel grey-green (i honestly never liked it..)

+You can insert videos and pictures directly into journals instead of copy/paste


Cons:

-whats the purpose of having core anymore?

-no customization what so ever

-black or white, NO IN BETWEEN

-This giant blank space for a header?? Really???

-where is the select all button to delete watched deviations??

-there is like 0 options on how you want your journal to look like. I prefer my text in the middle. theres no bold/italic/strike either??

-ummm.. the gallery tho...

-WHY IS EVERYTHING SO FUCKIN BIG???

-looks cluttered af

-watched deviations are a MESS

-notification sucks, only shows when you are tagged in something or replied too until you click it and go into "watch"

-just figured out how to b/i/s (you double click. thats somewhat inconvenient. still no option for left/middle/right..)

-making this journal sucked bc i had to keep scrolling down..


So thats what I have found so far.. i think once its completely all done and accessible to everyone im just..gonna get rid of core bc theres literally no reason for it since you cant customize the background or anything annnnd who really uses core for anything else except for customizing and cleaning up your gallery?

I recently heard they're bringing back custom boxes which is good, but it sucks that other good features are being lost. Why does dA look like every other social platform now?

I checked out one of my personal groups, and then one im just apart of.

they still look like the old dA, so it may not be in eclipse yet which..i find odd bc whats the difference between a group and a personal gallery other than multple people can post to it??

hm, well it is just in beta, but i dont see why they would open the beta for it unless they had it all covered and only had bugs to change?

Unless maybe it is a bug??? I don’t know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I’d like eclipse more if there was more custom options and like less BIG
Like everything is so big and in your face.. it’s like each art piece is competing for space
