DA: V6 Blank Protest by varekai666

Now that the journal mood issue has been resolved (Yay! I'm no longer "terrified!"), and since most of us have had time to test drive the new v6 design for dA, I'm curious to know what you think about it. I'm still troubled that I cannot upload zip files for stock packs. Is anyone else having this issue?
Nonetheless, I like the new look and the new message center layout. I think it will be cool once the bugs get worked out. Although, this makes me sad: Just when the bugs seem to start getting worked out at dA, the administrators make a new version of the site with totally new bugginess. I understand why the site gets a new makeover each year, but I voted in the community poll thingy with "I kind of wish you had bug tested it more." What was your vote? ...Or didn't you vote?

v6 is okay... no major issues with it for me, but I really don't like the new message center. The v5 message center was much more user friendly from my perspective. Other than that, I think I can get used to v6. I'd love to have v5 message center back though.
FantasyStock's avatar
Yeah, the message center... I wish it was more categoriezed for things like forum posts.

I like version 6! I have no problem with uploading stock packs or zip files, I just uploaded a few over the last two days. :dance: I have had some trouble uploading packs via my laptop (wireless connection vs cable), which may or may not be my connection's fault. I can't be sure.

I'm not sure why it would slow anyone's computer down. We have the oldest, slowest computers on earth at my work (one of the boxes says 'Windows 95 ready!") and version 6 works just fine there... :confused:

The only thing I don't like about it is the front page seems to have lost it's ability to be customized. :(

It took me about a day to really get used to the differences, but once I understood how it worked, I thought it was a big improvement. I do wish you could click on 'view as list' and it would stay that way until you changed it. Same with 'view by artist'. It'll probably be fixed soon, though, and any bugs I've encountered or heard about are nothing compared to the bugs we experienced two years ago. :fear:

I wish I could upload zips. I have a few waiting for dA's bugs to get worked out. I like the ability to submit suggestions as deviations.
