In the cold winter of 2006, a pear ripened that would forevermore change the fruity landscape of the Internet. Its submission to DeviantArt by ursulav brought with it so many questions: Lol wut? Why? It eats birds?








What is that chipmunk wearing?





How have we never noticed the giraffes?








Why do our internal DeviantArt site metrics report a steady rise in pear art over the last 10 years that finally hit capacity last month, taking over our algorithms and resulting in an artistic barrage of our most popular subject to date: lots and lots of vaguely ominous grinning pears?











The world may never know. But we must cater to the wishes of our deviants, so it's all pears all the time now. Break out your forks, kids. We're having pear salad tonight.

Look at all this $%^&ingBiting Pear of Salamanca Fan Art!








We know you have Biting Pear of Salamanca Fan Art on your desktop. Everyone does. Fanfiction perhaps? We accept it all! Submit yours today!








Show your solidarity with your new Biting Pear Overlord and change your avatar to one of these fine pears. Or make your own! Pear yourself!














Get A Pear Badge





All eligible submissions to our new Pear Category will get a Pear Badge that will display proudly on your profile for all to see. Note: Having the Pear Badge prevents the Biting Pear of Salamanca from biting YOU!

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 we’ll be further discussing how you’ll be able to customize and personalize your profile in Eclipse. We’ve been gathering and sorting your feedback, including the top ways you use Custom Box, and we’ll be reviewing it in these brainstorm sessions. We will have more to share soon!

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

Here’s this week’s change log!

Change Log

Header art quality on profiles has improved. If your header art is blurry, ensure that the original deviation is available as high resolution under “Display Options.” (Thanks, @queen-kitty, @titusweiss, @kaleidechse, @battlefairies, @yuukon, and several others who brought this up!)Fixed issues where typing in a URL in a Journals, comment, or Status Update would display the URL twice.Removed minimum character limit from Status Updates, allowing you to post a Status Update that just includes a deviation, gallery, video, or emoticon.You can now open and close Commissions from the individual Commission page.A “back to top” button added to galleries and browse pages.Badge pages are back!After posting a comment, the browser now scrolls to your comment.The toggle for Mature Content now reads “Show Mature Content” instead of “Mature Content” to prevent confusion. (Thanks for the tip, @rotane and @uszatyarbuz!)Fixed issue where tooltips would not display when hovering over the Add Deviation/Gallery/Video/Emoticon buttons on Comments, Journals, or Status Updates.Fixed issue where the “Send Note” button on profiles would open a new note with no recipient. (Thanks for spotting, @nominee84 and @mrs-durden!)Fixed issue where literature Daily Deviations displayed title twice. (Good catch, @3wyl!)The header image for Commissions is now centered.Updated the design of the “I’m open for commissions” button to make it look more prominent and clickable.Fixed issue where bolded text in comments would appear as a different color but not bold.After clearing out your notifications, the “no notifications here right now” message would be misaligned. (Thanks, @starlighthawk, @ikazon, and @sweetchimera!)Various other smaller bug fixes and changes.
