Late last year, we released the beta version of DeviantArt Eclipse – a redesign that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. It’s one of our biggest, most ambitious updates to date, which is why we’ve chosen to open it to Beta Testers as early as we did. Not only do we need Beta Testers’ help locating and squashing those pesky bugs, we want to gain deviants’ feedback, thoughts, and opinions on the current Eclipse experience and what we should include in the future. We’re very proud and excited with the level of collaboration we’ve been able to achieve with the DeviantArt community, and we hope to continue this as we further develop Eclipse.
The Beta version of Eclipse has brought many changes (see them here), with even more in store, including ways to customize and personalize Profiles!
Since the Beta launch of Eclipse late last year, we’ve received a lot of feedback regarding just that: Feedback. You might have called it a few other names in the past: Feedback, Message Center, Notifications, etc. Let’s establish what Feedback is: it’s comments and replies made on your art, any mentions of you or your art, and correspondence with other deviants and groups. We processed and analyzed your thoughts and opinions on Feedback, and how cumbersome it had become to interact with friends on Eclipse. With that, we’re excited to show you some major updates in the works.
You can now easily access Feedback by clicking on the bell icon next to your avatar, with all the different areas visible for you to filter through. Just a simple click and you can filter to view only your comments or only your mentions.
A popular request from several Beta Testers! With one, easy click of a mouse you can tidy up Feedback to your exact liking.
Multi-Remove & Multi-Save
Enjoy a more seamless process of removing multiple notifications in an efficient manner, or saving some of your favorite Feedback moments.
We understand how important being involved and embedded in the DeviantArt community is, and we hope the updated Feedback helps you connect and communicate more easily. These upcoming updates will be announced in's weekly change logs as soon as they are live. Share with us in the comments what you look forward to using in Feedback, as well as anything else you’d like to see improved!

Special shoutout to the DeviantArt staff involved with these major Feedback updates:
Be kind and show them some love or ask them a question if you have any!
My version of DeviantART EclipseThe moment I tested DeviantART Eclipse, I was dissapointed as a result.
My main reasons are presented in this journal.
For the past two days I've been trying to come up with an idea about how the site's layout update should be.
Suggestions regarding the Core members' benefits:
Core members should have the ability to customize their background image or colors.
The number of Custom boxes should be 20 instead of 10 for Core Members.
The site should promote the art of the people who pay more compared to how it's been promoted now.
