Things I LikeHow everything is grouped together: it takes less clicking to get to certain things now!
Ease of finding everything with like-items with other like-items!
Profile options (not necessarily at 100% yet tho but yay custom box!!!).
Theme options and how easy it is to switch between them.
The about me area! Super useful! A better way to manage links and stats than the green site!
Having certain stats where you use them ie the watchers/groups numbers when you are on your watch page...
Having a profile header image (wtf are the dimensions tho lol?!)
I really like 'hearting' comments, the immediate gratification of llama and watchbacks, and the larger previews.
The option to go to an extra page and view all your notifications from a specific group in a convenient grid.
The way journals are displayed - LOVE IT!
ASDGAF LOVE custom backgrounds I can swap out on my deviations!!
Things I DislikeIt is still slow - I know it is going to take time, but I hate waiting for my pages to load...
I want to customize the locations of widgets more on my profile. I like certain things on certain sides of my profile page...
The light theme is just a bit TOO light and the dark a bit TOO dark.
Comments get lost - even when featured. They seem jumbled together without any outlines or other ways to distinguish them from the background color...
I don't like how the previews cut images up or off - you don't get a good feel for what you are gonna go view that way - it makes me less likely to click to fullview something when it looks like crap as a preview already...
Having to go to a different page to mass-delete notifications... Can we not just have that option in the primary watch or feedback window?
tapsfinger ... Still waiting on groups to be assimilated...
The lack of coding ability - I get we want to be uniform, but I would kill for SUB, SUP, and SMALL again...
CANNOT MOBILE... The site HAS to work on my ipad and iphone. I go mobile A LOT. The app is poo too, so something has to give here.
Things I am Missing?? Halp!How do I find more than the default groups when adding a deviation to a group?
Like, did I miss something HUGE? When clicking to add to group in Eclipse, it lists a bunch of groups but they are not the groups I need or even use haha! I can't find a search option like what exists in the green site to search for and find the group I need/want. This needs to be fixed please lol (note I did include this in feedback already, but it is still bugging me XD)
How the heccin' do I edit a pre-existing journal in Eclipse?!
I can make new journals all day long, but when I visit a journal that is already made - my profile OR a group I admin in - there are no buttons to edit that I can find. Am I missing something?! I like to edit my journals (a lot) so this is rather annoying... (note I also included this in some feedback too)
Seems I have some people unwatched in Eclipse that are watched in green site? Glitch?? Me??
Unsure if this is just a glitch or just me, but I have users populating my watch page who I KNOW I WATCH on green site that show up with a +watch in my watch page??? Why? So I am technically re-watching them? Idk. It is fairly minor since I am still getting their content in my watch page, but it is a little confusing and annoying... (this has NOT been included in feedback yet)
How do I get to a list of all my journals in the first place?
I just don't see a place for them (ie a link to them) but I feel like I found them before in Eclipse... Did it move or am I crazy? I like to update my old journals, and I like to go back and link back to them too... in status' or deviations or new journals or polls... etc.
The dA Team is listening! Are you talking?I know Eclipse is super new and is a HUGE change from the green site. HOWEVER, the devs ARE LISTENING. If you want change - new features, feature adjustments, things removed or just moved - YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK.
It doesn't matter if you are a volunteer, senior member, whatever. There are no 'little guys' here - there is only A VOICE. And if you are not part of that voice, then you are missing out on a huge opportunity to help shape and shift Eclipse to be the site we have always wanted and waited for. Eclipse is an immense opportunity for our community. Jump on board and experience it - then send in some constructive feedback.
dA is listening to us. But if you don't tell them what you want and need, they won't know. TEST IT. GIVE FEEDBACK. PLEASE. Do not give in to the fear-mongering - Eclipse is different (it will take some time to get used to), but it isn't an unholy mess unworthy of your time.
