Undiscovered (Beta): Unearthing Quality Art
Art Under The Radar Each day, hundreds of thousands of pieces of art are submitted to deviantART. As more and more artists join, create, and share their work, it becomes easy for high quality art to miss its chance to stand out and be seen. Our new browse mode, Undiscovered, aims to bring new, high quality artwork to the foreground. Finding Hidden Gems Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork that has not yet drawn attention or recognition at the levels of Popular or What's Hot browse modes. Using an algorithm that identifies patterns in community behavior when curating content, Undiscovered generates a browsing experience that

Site Update: Bug Fixes and Feedback
Change Log Various additions and changes were made for the Valentine's Day Art Exchange. Added by iconocrash (https://www.deviantart.com/iconocrash) For Internet Explorer 8 users, selecting a deviation category on the Submit page would cause the browser to freeze and increase CPU usage. Fixed by lepidosteus (https://www.deviantart.com/lepidosteus) The Verification and Cart pages were briefly inaccessible. Fixed by ArtBIT (https://www.deviantart.com/artbit) The image slideshow on stacks in Sta.sh was not displaying smoothly. Fixed by drommk (https://www.deviantart.com/drommk) For a small number of deviations, the "Featured in Groups" section would display Groups the deviation was no longer included in, or would not display Groups that deviation actually is featured in.

Pageviews by danlev

As of today, we've updated the way Profile pageviews are counted for deviants and Groups.


Many years ago, we expanded the pageview counter to include not just the front page of your Profile, but also the Journals tab and the Prints tab (but not individual Journals or Prints). We mistakenly never expanded the count to other areas of the Profile.


This has been inconsistent for quite some time and we haven’t been transparent about what exactly this counter included.  


Starting today, the pageview counter will begin including pageviews to all sections of your Profile, including:

  • Gallery and Gallery Folders
  • Favourites and Collections
  • Other profile subpages: Activity, Badges, Daily Deviations, Critiques, Gallery Stats, Polls, Wishlist

We felt that it was important to fix this inconsistency to properly reflect traffic to all deviants’ Profiles. If an artist gets a lot of traffic to their Prints shop, this should be reflected in the same way it would if an art appreciator had high-traffic Collections.


We see the Profile Page in its entirety as a single entity and we want the pageview counter to properly reflect traffic to it regardless of the entry point.   


Note that this change only applies to Profile pageviews and not deviation views or any other statistics.

But I have a question: Do my own views of my page add to the counter?

I have a nexus 5 and windows 8 64bit both using Chrome and when i refresh my profile or counts as a pageview. I alternate between the two and the counter keep going.

I dont know how it works but is the server pending views or it is live?

I dont know if im getting views or if the site is bugged. So what your saying is if people look at my gallery i get a page view as well as my profile page?

Is it the same for group pageviews? Do my views as the founder count?

You probably won't see much of a change other than pageviews being slightly higher during the days after this Journal was posted.

It does sound intriguing, but...I don't see the changes on the pageview dialogue, where do I view the stats you mentioned?

There aren't any visual changes other than you might notice your pageviews might be slightly higher since this Journal was posted.

oh that's a pretty sweet update! but I'm guessing all the pageviews will be added up together; is it also possible to see them seperately? :P
