Dododex v2 - for ARK: Survival Evolved
After months of work, and hundreds of hours of design and development, version 2 of my app, Dododex, is here!

(For those of you who don't know, Dododex is a companion app for the dinosaur survival game, ARK: Survival Evolved)

Dododex is available on iOS and Android.

Shinehorn painting was commissioned by the talented SandraWinther.

As of this morning, Eclipse has been rolled out to more members of the community, including many of those who have joined the waitlist. In this week’s change log, we’re excited to announce lots of updates that have been highly requested by the community!
Tops and Cracks

WHAT'S NEW

Custom Sections

Custom sections are now live! You can now add a Custom section to your Profile – add your own background, images, text, and more!
(Note: Core Members will be able to add multiple Custom sections, but during this first release Custom sections are limited to one for all deviants.)

Watch and Feedback Improvements

One of Eclipse's most popular requests is finally here! You can now remove and archive notifications in one click on both the Watch and Feedback pages.

Add GIFs!

When words or an image might not express what you want to say – you can now gif it! Add gifs to journals, status updates, comments – you name it!

Spotlight a Single Deviation on Your Profile

Shine a spotlight one of your own, or maybe another deviant you admire. You can now feature up to 5 deviations on your Profile!

Delete Comments

A highly requested feature! You can now remove comments posted on your Profile or deviation pages, as well as delete any comments you have personally left.

CHANGE LOG

  • When switching between Eclipse and the old site, you’re now kept on the page you were originally on.
  • Hot Topic notifications are now part of Eclipse!
  • Upon editing your bio in Eclipse for the first time, you will see a confirmation message before importing your old bio into the new bio editor
  • Fixed issue where emoticons could not be deleted using backspace.
  • Upon uploading a vertical image as your profile cover art, you can now crop and reposition the image
  • Fixed issue where comment sort order was not preserved after leaving the page
  • When returning to browse (or search) from a deviation page, you are now brought to a more accurate position in the browse results.
  • Fixed issue where some GIFs could not be uploaded as an avatar.
  • Fixed issue where emoticons and other formatting in bios would display as markup on the Home tab of your Profile.
In addition to these updates and bug fixes are smaller improvements we’ve made as we continue to develop larger features in Eclipse. Stay tuned for more, and follow these steps to leave feedback:
  1. Switch to DeviantArt Eclipse
  2. Click your avatar
  3. Select “Give Your Feedback” to access our official form

In this week's change log, we've updated literature pages — a popular request from the community — as well as a handful of bug fixes and improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!
Cosmic transformation

Improved Literature Deviation Page Design

Another popular request from the community was to improve the design of literature deviation pages and put the actual writing front and center. Thanks to @battlefairies, @jcoolarts, @thebigeasy66, @queen-kitty, and the many others who shared their feedback on literature!
NewLit2

Change Log

  • Ability to submit a Journal to a Group has been added! Click the “New Journal” button on a Group’s Journal tab to submit directly to that Group.
  • You can now edit older literature deviations in Eclipse. (Thanks for pointing out, @dc-26 and @littlekhajiit!)
  • The Daily Deviation page now includes three days by default (instead of two), with a "show more" button at the bottom.
  • While using browse or search, your previously selected sort mode will be preserved when you switch back and forth between Status Updates, Polls, and Commissions.
  • After clicking a deviation from browse or search then clicking the back button, you'll now return to the correct position in the results rather than the beginning.
  • When a deviant gives you Points, the notifications dropdown would display "[deviant] gave you..." without including the amount of Points given.
  • Eclipse journals would be cut off on smaller screens on the old site.
  • Clicking “View Log” on a Group admin notification would link to an error page.
  • On Feedback, the timestamp on comments and replies now links to the comment’s permalink page so you can see the full context of a conversation.
  • When italicizing, bolding, or underlining a heading, the headline would break onto multiple lines
  • Timestamps on Feedback notifications are now clearer. (A notification from 3 months ago now displays as the actual date rather than “3m” which could also be confused as 3 minutes ago.)
  • Daily Deviations page now includes a “Back to Top” button.
  • The account reactivation page (restoring your account after deactivating it) has been moved to Settings rather than your profile page. This fixes an issue were deviants would need to switch back to the old site to reactivate if they deactivated while in Eclipse. This change is now live on the old site as well.
  • Deviation descriptions that were made from the old site now properly preserve formatting on Eclipse.
  • Fixed issue where mature content would be visible in Polls, Status Updates, Drafts and a few other places, even if your mature content filter was on.
  • Fixed issues where font sizes would sometimes be smaller in some comments.

New Profile URLs

Wed Jun 27, 2018, 11:36 AM by danlev:icondanlev:
DeviantArt is constantly evaluating better ways to serve our community, from new features to smaller updates and bug fixes. Today, we're making a change to the format of profile URLs that will have a positive impact moving forward. In order to better serve you, we’re changing profile URLs from username.deviantart.com to deviantart.com/username


Don't worry, your old URLs will still work, and you can continue to use them. Your old links/URLs will always redirect to your new ones.

We know a lot of deviants are attached to their URLs, so the decision to make this change was not done lightly. Part of the decision-making process involved surveying active deviants, and we discovered the overall sentiment was fairly neutral. Most people did not strongly prefer one or the other — as long as old URLs redirected. But, most importantly, we believe this change will be beneficial for you.

Why Changing URLs Is for the Better

  • The new URLs will likely increase your traffic: Based on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) experts we’ve consulted with and also other sites that have made the switch, moving away from subdomains is likely to increase overall site traffic from search engines—this means more traffic to your Profiles and deviations.

  • Subdomains cause many technical challenges, inhibiting site improvement and performance. Browsers treat subdomains like different, individual sites for security reasons and, because of this, more and more website functionality is being limited to working with a single domain. Working around these restrictions makes building new features and maintaining old ones complicated, increasing the time it takes our engineers to complete projects. It also creates “buggy” circumstances while navigating the site. For example, you might have noticed that it sometimes shows the wrong artist’s name in the URL when using the “next” and “previous” buttons while browsing artwork in someone’s galleries — this is a technical limitation that is imposed by browsers for security reasons and was not possible to work around until now.

More Updates To Come!

This is a small update ahead of some major improvements we'll be making to profile and other areas of the site. You'll be hearing more in the coming months!

  1. What improvements to DeviantArt profiles would you like to see?
  2. Which part of your profile are you most proud of?

Hello! May I ask what journal skins you recommend for Eclipse? The one I've been using looks a little wonky in Eclipse unfortunately.
Thank you! :heart:

Please reply to me about eclipse please I don't want it please keep as an option for us not a force thing please I'm OK if you all have it just Please don't force it on all of us I'm scared to death about it....this has been keeping me awake at night and further more I use this site to help me with my depression. Just please don't and I have tried it I don't like it I'm begging you with all my heart please don't force eclipse on us I am OK if it stays as an option please. Also most artists use this site to make money you all do this not only will you guys lose money but they will too do you guys know how much money you all will lose and the artist that make money will lose with this a lot.

I'm also not going to quit complaining until the thing with eclipse changes I hope you understand I'm trying to be as mature as I can about eclipse but I'm scared about the future for DA because a lot of users will leave over this I hope you realize that.

^^I'm one of them. Hi!
I'm sorry but it's an eyesore, it's too much and just too busy. I like my simple page. And if other people want it, fine, great but there are those (like me) that don't. And I hope they will put an opt out option for those that don't. (though I doubt they will)
