That's how you get pageviews
And here you have the number one question that people ask me:
"How the hell did you get so many people to view your art? You're not even that good!"
I can't do anything other than honestly admitting that I'm not that good at art. I'm not some awesomely skilled concept artist, at least. I've seen many people do a better job while receiving a lot less of attention.
Why a medium like DeviantArt works for me? Probably because I've been around on the internet for so long, and I've spend so much time working for internet-marketing company's, that things like advertising and web usability have become a second nature to me. A lot of the things that I've come to regard as common sense in internet communication, are things that are nowadays proven successful by research.
It's important to know that websites like DeviantArt are listed in the category social media. That probably didn't occur to most people, since DeviantArt seems to be so heavily focused towards art (and tradi

DeviantART Eclipse

Sun Nov 18, 2018, 2:03 PM
Ever since the announcement of DeviantART Eclipse I've been seeing a whole lot of negativity about it. I'm not surprised, this happens every time there is an update to DeviantART, regardless of whether the update is good or bad. The truth is that your reaction to DeviantART's new design says more about you than it does about the design. People are just generally opposed to change by nature, even if that change is beneficial to them.

The changes introduced by DeviantART Eclipse offer all of the following benefits:
  • The ability to customize the background of your page
  • The ability to customize your profile without needing to know how to write code.
  • New profile widgets each with their own customization options to make your profile unique.
  • Everybody can now make polls and you can browse for polls.
  • You can now browse for peoples' status posts.
  • You can like comments.
  • Core members can customize the background images of their deviation pages.
  • Core members can now submit videos to the site, something that was restricted to a very few select people in the past (like myself)
I heard a lot of complaints that DeviantART has removed the ability to customize your page. This is anything but true. They haven't removed it, they have just changed how it's done so that it can be accessible to people who don't know how to write code. The only thing that people are complaining about is that they're removing the custom widget in which people used to put specific HTML codes to customize the page, but that is not the same as saying they're removing the ability to customize your profile, there are far more customization options than there ever have been before.

I would like to ask that you don't just jump on a hate bandwagon just because there's change and you saw some popular people complain about it.
I just have a few things to say about the negative reactions:
  • "Nobody wants it": Unless you've interviewed every single person of the millions who use the site, you can't know that. Your only data source is a vocal minority.
  • "They should give an option to change it back": Should they really? Do you also want an option to switch back to version 6, 5 or 4 of the site? There comes a point where progress needs to be made and it is detrimental to look back.
  • "I'm leaving" and "Everybody will leave the site": I've said this countless times, but don't expect me, or half of your other followers, to follow you. If you leave, you should leave with the knowledge that a large portion of the people won't follow you to another website. As for DeviantART losing business and everybody leaving, no, that's not going to happen. This prediction failed for the last 5 versions of the site as well, people make this silly prediction every time.
In summary, whether you like it or not, DeviantART is moving forward and keeping up with the times so as to not get outdated and fall into obscurity. Whether you leave the site or not, they'll keep moving forward with or without you. If you choose to stay, I'm sure you'll eventually learn to embrace the changes which make the site better.

On final positive thing for you if you're still unhappy about the changes!


You have power to change things, but maybe not exactly in the way you'd like. There are things that aren't coming back, like custom widgets (because the ability to write HTML was actually breaking a lot of pages and they want to keep the site's design clean), but you can still give feedback to them and suggestions for new customization features.
Think about why exactly you wanted to write HTML, which items of customization you were using the HTML for, such as background images or embedded videos. Perhaps you can ask for a widget to embed youtube videos onto your page, or to embed songs on your page. You can ask for features, just don't ask for something so vague and general as the ability to write HTML. HTML is the tool, not the goal. The goal can be achieved through other means.
