Hey! I don't know if comments are still being read in this journal for UX changes, but I have a pretty simple one: - To speed up the ability of being able to two click remove a stack of deviations from my watch queue, can the "remove" tool tip be changed into a clickable item? So clicking the "X" once will trigger the delete function and then ever so slightly below that, the "remove" tip will become another button I can click. This will eliminate the accident of double clicking the "X" and also shorten the distance of dragging my mouse to remove a stacked set.

Additionally, I feel like it might already be in a future change log, because how could you not already know about this, but comments/journals don't show time stamps.

Made this new account to organize some group things, noticed that Stash Writer isnt available in the stash here? Anyone know why that is for new accs. with the Eclipse update? Is that feature no longer available? I loved being able to write journals in stash and upload them to my groups/save them for later! whats up??

It's not there anymore because it was planned, but there's a draft feature to replace it (submit > literature> save as draft, then to find your drafts it's in Posts> drafts)

Planned to not be included in Eclipse at all? I'm very sad if that's the case. The unique ability to mock up journals and post them directly to a DA Group was extremely useful and helpful to make nicely laid out/decorated journals. Not to mention being able to have text posts that could still be interacted with by other users instead of being private drafts only. Can we not include thumbs/images in posts anymore and are drafts only accessible to the OP of the account?

I have nothing against changes and I understand that coding a website cannot be done in 2 minutes. But giving the idea that the community can participate in the site development, but then not having a main source of information and old/recent news about it, has a result with people asking and repeating over and over again the same things, either because they are new and didn't follow the logs till the beginning (not everybody can imagine out of the blue that there are logs) or because they don't have any clear reply back about their concerns.
Perhaps at the end(?) of the development, the final release of Eclipse will be really good, but for all the people that are going through this confusing mess, I have the feeling that it will be an emotionless release.

I've just registered a new account and I can't switch off Eclipse from there. I can't turn back to old version. There's no page with points there. I can't trade llamas from there. 
You're going to remove points and llamatrade from Eclipse or what?
How could I sell my adopts for points from there if I can't even browse my points balance?

And how can I switch to an old version?

That's all we've asked for and they provided, but no matter what I say, people will ignore :

Custom sections (even if lacking atm)
Ability to delete comments
Ability to remove the comments section
Ability to remove the grid gallery
Added the Featured Deviation section (called Spotlight in Eclipse)
Descriptions under literature deviations (old dA feature)
Selecting multiple collections when faving
Removal of the show more button from comments (when it was long we had to click show more)

That's all I can show, they're working on the rest... People on,ly see what they didn't add (yet) instead of seeing what they did add already and will. Like the search feature on galleries for example, or multiple background themes which was asked for a lot... Coding takes time and things don't happen in the snap of a finger. It takes time.

Well, maybe people just have different opinions and experiences working with Eclipse? Maybe some will like it and maybe some just won't no matter how much it's used?  I think that's why an opt out is a good idea so people can decide. That way if users still don't like Eclipse they can keep their old page.  It might have nothing to do with updates or time they just honestly don't like using Eclipse and they're opinion is unlikely to change.

If they're going to force eclipse on us at least let those of us who like the old version choose a "Classic DA" color scheme so it doesn't look like a cheap ArtStation/Instagram knockoff. But admin here never listens to us anyway so we'll be stuck the blinding eyesore that is eclipse. They're getting almost as bad as youtube over here.

You better let people stay on old DA layout if they want to, and not force us all to change over eventually.

Also I really want to point out that, DA eclipse would attract more people if you just let us keep custom boxes and codes.

If DeviantArt is unable to retain existing features for technical reasons, it is a shame they wasted this much money on Eclipse. I guess I should not be surprised that they are better at breaking things than they are at fixing them.

Daemon-Illusionum Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, nah, I meant keeping both versions is impossible for technical reasons. As for features and functionality, everything should be included in Eclipse once it's finished. Except for profile coding, which is indeed being taken away for technical reasons. Everything's suited for phones and limited data these days... Bluargh... >:c Profile coding performs poorly on phones, and image heavy designs use too much data. I think it's... understandable in a way. And I'm glad they're trying to find a new way to have custom boxes with a background and all. But it's honestly lacking in it's current state.

May I point out that "More Groups" I am a part of section on my abouts does not work as intended. Instead of showing More Groups I am a part of, it will pull up a random selection of groups when clicking more, and sometimes show duplicates. One time while clicking through more it showed the same group 4 times.

Personally, I hate this new layout. The older one was easier on the eyes and could be easier navigated. I believe it should be an option to switch for those who do not wish to change to the new one. One of the reasons why I liked DeviantArt was because of its layout. The one problem I did have was not being able to remove the comment section but that wasn't a big deal.

And it is required for me to switch to Eclipse with no return to share feedback....

Eclipse Change Log: December 12, 2018

This week, nearly the whole DeviantArt team encompassing staff members from Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, Kiev, and Vancouver, to name a few has come together at our HQ in Hollywood to focus on Eclipse and plan whats in store for 2019.

As a reminder, were continuing to work on the bigger community feedback concerns including customization and improvements to Feedback and we hope to share more soon.

Since the holidays are coming up, and many people on our team are traveling or taking time off, we wont have a change log to share for a short while. But we want to let you all know that we are continuing to review and analyze your feedback, and we look forward to sharing more updates with you early next year!

Change Log

Literature descriptions are back! (Popular request!)After replying to a comment in Feedback, the notification is now automatically removed. (Popular request!)Comment link pages now have "parent" and "top" buttons, and are now centered for easy readability. (Popular request!)Scraps are back!You can now mention a deviant just by typing (rather than selecting them from the list).The Gift dropdown on profile now tells you when you've already given them a llama or they are full of cake. Removed minimum character count in Status Updates and Journals, allowing deviants to share a post that simply includes a deviation, gallery, or video.

(Artwork: hidden view by @umbatman)Literature thumbs including on the Daily Deviations page now include preview text.Using the New Bio EditorTry the new Eclipse bio editor! When adding a bio to your Eclipse profile, we'll start you off with your bio from the old site. Please keep in mind that some elements, such as thumbnails, were not able to be transitioned to the new editor, however you can still add them to your bio. We recommend trying the new image and gallery features to share your favorite artwork in your bio.Also note that due to migration issues, bios of deviants who are not on Eclipse are static, meaning if they update them on the old site, the changes will not be reflected on Eclipse until that deviant switches to Eclipse and edits their bio using the new editor.

Eclipse Change Log: November 28, 2018

Thank you for your continued feedback and bug reports on DeviantArt Eclipse!

Our team has been working on customization and personalization options and we have brainstorming sessions planned where well be further discussing how youll be able to customize and personalize your profile in Eclipse. Weve been gathering and sorting your feedback, including the top ways you use Custom Box, and well be reviewing it in these brainstorm sessions. We will have more to share soon!

In the meantime, were still working on other customization features already in the design stages, including editing your bio and custom cropping of your profile header art. Weve seen some creative ways people are featuring single deviations on their profile (for example, see @ellysiumn and @katy-l-woods profiles), and were working on the ability to more-easily feature a single deviation on your profile.

Heres this weeks change log!

What's Next for Eclipse: WatchAs @danlev mentioned in a previous change log, we'll be covering some areas of DeviantArt Eclipse with more in-depth journals. Last week, we kicked off with a journal dedicated to updates that are coming soon to Feedback! This week, one of the essential areas of DeviantArt is Watch. Its where we go to discover whats new amongst who we follow, and get inspired by things were familiar with and love. We wanted to make sure your Watch experience is just as exciting as your Browse experience, but also as efficient as your Feedback experience. Weve decided to make the Watch page dedicated solely to Watch so youll no longer see the tabs for Watch, Feedback, and Notes. As soon as youre on Watch, itll be just that everyone and everything you watch! Here are some related updates well be introducing to you all soon:New NavigationNo more multi-clicks or dropdowns to get to the content you want to see.

What's Next for Eclipse: FeedbackLate last year, we released the beta version of DeviantArt Eclipse a redesign that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. Its one of our biggest, most ambitious updates to date, which is why weve chosen to open it to Beta Testers as early as we did. Not only do we need Beta Testers help locating and squashing those pesky bugs, we want to gain deviants feedback, thoughts, and opinions on the current Eclipse experience and what we should include in the future. Were very proud and excited with the level of collaboration weve been able to achieve with the DeviantArt community, and we hope to continue this as we further develop Eclipse.The Beta version of Eclipse has brought many changes (see them here), with even more in store, including ways to customize and personalize Profiles! We Hear You!Since the Beta launch of Eclipse late last year, weve received a lot of feedback regarding just that: Feedback. You might have called it a few other names in the past: Feedback, Message Center, Notifications, etc. Lets establish what Feedback is: its comments and replies made on your art, any mentions of you or your art, and correspondence with other deviants and groups. We processed and analyzed your thoughts and opinions on Feedback, and how cumbersome it had become to interact with friends on Eclipse. With that, were excited to show you some major updates in the works.Changes Were Making Based on Your FeedbackNew NavigationYou can now easily access Feedback by clicking on the bell icon next to your avatar, with all the different areas visible for you to filter through. Just a simple click and you can filter to view only your comments or only your mentions.One-Click RemoveA popular request from several Beta Testers! With one, easy click of a mouse you can tidy up Feedback to your exact liking. Multi-Remove & Multi-SaveEnjoy a more seamless process of removing multiple notifications in an efficient manner, or saving some of your favorite Feedback moments.Let Us Know!We understand how important being involved and embedded in the DeviantArt community is, and we hope the updated Feedback helps you connect and communicate more easily. These upcoming updates will be announced in @danlev's weekly change logs as soon as they are live. Share with us in the comments what you look forward to using in Feedback, as well as anything else youd like to see improved!Got something else on your mind?

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. Weve 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 youre 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, its clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the green site. Its 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. Were in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.

We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your Profile

Eclipse 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.Were also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.Well be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, heres one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipses 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. Wed 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 wont be complete for many months. Well provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.

Addressing Your Other Top Concerns

The new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, weve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report its cumbersome to remove notifications and its hard to remove notifications in bulk. Well 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. Were 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 didnt make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, its 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 isnt a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and well 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 whove produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:

Again, thank you to everyone! With your feedback, weve filed numerous bugs and our developers are working on them continually.

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?
