Thanks for stopping in on my DeviantArt page! As you may have read above, I'm Matt Buchholtz, and I'm the Head of Social Media at DeviantArt! I live my life focusing on two main tenets: "Educate" and "Elevate." That means I'm always looking for ways to bring up everyone around me, and make sure that they're best-equipped to succeed. I've been working at DeviantArt since early 2018, but cut my teeth on the site many, many years ago when I was freelancing as a graphic designer. I've also had nearly any job you can think of! Please make sure to check out the DeviantArt Podcast!

How frequently do you see status updates from people?
Fairly accurate representation of my wife / me.
AEW just had an amazing PPV that included a "Pool of Reincarnation," Tifa Lockhart cosplay, a skateboard leap off of a ladder, and more. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Hey! maybe you can help me? I still don't know how to upload new icons directly to add media. There should be a way to do that as is not a technicall issue at all. Is just I don't see how to do it or if there is a possibility.

Hey Linux! What icon are you referring?

linux-rulesHobbyist Artist

I mean, to upload new icons to "add media". See:

Youtube IconMediBang Paint Pro IconKo-fi (2017) Icon Cattus catti Icon (left) (animation) Astronaut spinning (1C) Icon (animation) Just small example of the icons I have upload, they are widely used in all dA to mark a social web or a software /or more like purely emotes, like the cat and astronaut.

But now I can't upload new ones to add media. If I upload them it has to be only as images, not as icons.

Pulseaudio (temporal, eclipse try)

They don't appear in add media either and are dificultier to use.

Hope that didn't bother you that I have appeared of nowhere to ask you this strange thing but I see you are in contact with people who have control of these things. I submited feature requests tickets and I got no response.

I think the change to admit a new icon into add media is not very technical issue. Previously was done with a specific category. So, now is not possible because there are no categories :(

Greetings and sorry for strange/long message. Hope you have a nice day.

K, that makes more sense! The people that respond to tickets will know more than I will (I primarily curate art and feature it on social media). I know that they answer tickets in the order received, and have been pretty busy right now (as you can imagine). They would probably have the best info for you on changes to media/images.

Sorry I couldn't be more help!
