COGS #2 by Z-GrimV
We are happy to announce the release of an improved API. After many years the api had become a little confusing and was not keeping up with changes to its backend systems. We therefore decided to redesign parts and fix some of the confusing naming and behaviour.

These changes are versioned so if you are using version prior to 20150416 there will be no change in behaviour, we plan to support the old api for around a year.

Summary of Changes

The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.

These endpoints were removed and their functionality is provided by newer ones

  • /stash/folder
  • /stash/media
  • /stash/metadata
  • /stash/move/file
  • /stash/move/folder

New endpoints to manage stacks

  • POST /stash/move/{stackid} - moves stacks
  • POST /stash/position/{stackid} - change the position of a stack within a parent stack
  • POST /stash/update/{stackid} - update stack details (title, description)
  • GET /stash/{stackid} - fetch stack details, returns stash_metadata object
  • GET /stash/{stackid}/contents - list stack contents, supports pagination

New endpoints to manage items

  • GET /stash/item/{itemid} - fetch an item, returns stash_metadata object
  • POST /stash/delete - delete an item by itemid

Stash Metadata object

  • Renamed fields folderid and stashid
  • Removed is_folder
  • Replaced keywords with tags

Any problems can be reported on the GitHub Issue Tracker.

When DT finishes making a brand new DeviantArt feature, or just fixes a bug, we first run it on our top-secret staging server. When everything's ready to go live, we sync it!

I'm just learning, but may I ask what you mean by "skinned?"

Because Developers,
it doesn't need to be pretty to fulfill it's purpose. :)

I see you changed image-servers (over to WIX's ones it seems). But what happened to the download feature? Instead of the old "filename_by_username-string.ext" i more often than not come by a simple "file.ext", or worse, a "file.html" document (even if it's in fact an image). I hope you'll look into this!

Edit: Also, the full view of a deviation now seems to be a compressed version of the original image, rendering them less attractive than they used to be. This is especially noticeable on logos and similar digitally created files (like all of the deviations in my Designs gallery). I get it, this is most likely due to bandwidth concerns and won't be noticed by many, but i think it's a big downgrade.

1. Can you please make it so that we can quick and easy edit our gallery's? Or turn the page that we use when we edit our gallery so that it is a scroll page instead?
Because going from scroll to lot of pages are really annoying (and there's too few submissions on each page) and I can't move 1 submission to any other edit page. What I want to say is that thanks to what you did the edit page is not good at all, and it's much more annoying + I get a lot more work to do and it ain't fun. Please fix this.

2. When searching for art or else can you make it so we can chose to see the title below the submission/journal, like before? I feel I'm on Google and not DeviantArt.

3. When uploading submissions that DA auto tags, you need a box that we can click on not to get the submission auto tagged. I'm saying this because when uploading anything that has been adopted (and I wish to credit) it can really annoy other people who are looking for adopts. At least something that will keep the auto tag away for 3 weeks in hopes not to annoy others.

I hope things improve one day, have a nice day.

Is there any way we can implement the following things. Not major changes but would be useful: 

Choosing which journal is featured on your profile (instead of having to make a new one so people actually see it when you modify it) 
A "notify watchers" box when you update a journal
A limit of 1 on activity messages. I like them on my profile, but 5 is just too much and fills up my entire profile.
