New Username Symbols
As part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.
Easily Identifiable
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

This is really overdue.

Pretty much I'm on a hiatus until I figure out several things - my computer situation (my PC has died twice and I lost everything in January-about to do another rewipe) and my scanner is not available, along with issues with my Wacom tablet. 

I haven't made art in a long time and don't know when I'll be able to again, especially with my tech and PC issues!

I'm also pretty poor at the moment. 

I hope to find my way back to DA and get active again sooner rather than later. Until then, I hope everyone is well. 

Thanks for the birthday wishes, too.
