New DevArt Layout

By jollyjack
You know what I really don't have time for? Trying to work out how to use a clunky, unfriendly new interface for all the stuff that, just a few hours earlier, I had no problem doing.
(It's actually taken me 3 attempts just to upload this damn picture correctly)
Thanks so much for forcing "Eclipse" on us, DA. Go die in a fire.

Now my submittion process takes 8 times longer and give me time to enjoy the beautifull amount of pop-up-messages i have to dodge. In a regular sub-process i hit the WANNA BUY CORE?!-button four times. I really think they imagen this as positive remember of core membership.

I'm emotionally on a point where harsh words just aren't enough ...

Yep agreed, DeviantArt's original layout was fine

It is horrible. There is so much more things to navigate around now as it wants to force people to look at what's trending/new.

I geel this completely. I barely use my da only because i cant even delete things or drag and like as before, and the phone version is even more clunky. I have to select my name THEN go to my gallery like wtfudge man!!!

I'm still mad about it. It performs worse and is harder to navigate. Can't drag to favorites, either. So much to complain about.

palesoles's avatar

Wow. That was my same reaction too.

Its worse I can't even figure out how to now see all the people I watch

I can't figure out how to delete all these deviations (different from the last time I logged in), I can't favorite them, I can't even visit the page from the photo. why would those things be removed?!?!

I'm sure it's obvious, I just can't figure it out

so apparently Im NOT the only one who had troubles with that new DA bs !

(according to this post and the comment section it provides)

and just when I (/we?) thought the new logo was the worst idea this site could come up to !

the only nice add-on to this new version is the possibility to like comments and replies now.

Still not worth the whole crap though.

Yeah I'm not a fan of this at all.

I agree 110%, way to fix something that isn't broken DA!

Let the Latin scream chanting begin...=P

I literally just figured out where my watch list was.

I'm with you. Fire cleanses all sins

The trouble with Eclipse is that it isn't physical.

If it was , all you would need to fix it is a gallon of petrol, all over it...

… and a match.

Hunter-hero-Girl's avatar

That's basicly Markiplier right there when something don't go right

AuraVampyre's avatar

Finally! I finally figured out how to get to my watch list! Now I just need to sort through everything...

The old layout used to have a search function for individual da galleries. Not anymore

Lucid-01's avatar

The comments and activities are my new bane. Lots of lovely watchers going un-thanked for the simple fact that sorting the comments is way to distracting.

DarmanSejuk's avatar

The new interfaces even less friendly on a mobile device. Never mind the fact that the app doesn't work so well either.

Y-Mangaka's avatar

have to say : I thought it would be helpful for me to go on DA with my phone to check my group's posts anytime..

turns out it got even harder now cause I cant even figure where to go to check my group's features !

Also had to get a different browser to make this thing work on my computer.

Now I feel old cause I miss the good ol' time when internet was simple and easy.. (2 years ago)

Thanks, DA !!
