What's this for?
Hello everyone. We all ended up in this pile of eclipse. This is life now. But I think it's very useless for us to just scream how broken everything is and ask to bring back the old one.
We are definitely not going to get back the old one.
So the only hope for us is that DA team is gonna grab their shit together and fixt this mess. And we have to support this instead of just a raging screaming on them. We have to send them constructive criticism and bug reports. Because DA team definitely has no idea of what to do or how to do it.
But there's one problem, if we go in support and write a report in "Give your feedback" we only can write 300 symbols. That's not enough to describe even one bug.
That's what this post is for. I want to put together a complete list of all bugs and idiotic design solution in one organized list. So you could take the link to this post and put in "Give your feedback" saying something like "there's a full list of every bugs" and spam for
If you're going to force Eclipse on everyone, the least you can do is fix and FINISH the website first!
This is meant to be a comprehensive, alphabetized list of all the features that are either tarnished by Eclipse or flat-out removed completely. I plan on updating this as I discover more and more missing or broken things.
:new: Update: I added what danlev (https://www.deviantart.com/danlev) wrote in his comment. Note that what he wrote is in bold.
Manage deviations and friends list via menu. (See screenshots bellow.)

So Eclipse is ComingSEE MY LATEST JOURNAL ON THIS HERE:
I'd like to organize a proactive event to show DA the possible results of a permanent Eclipse change-over. Instead of deactivating your accounts for good, or indefinitely boycotting the site, I'd like to make a Statement of Silence for those Users against Eclipse. Starting May 1st, I will not be active on Deviantart. I will not submit new deviations, journals or even visit the site for 3 Days time. From 12:00AM CST May 1st to 12:00am May 4th. (3 days) I ask all other Users who wish to keep old Deviantart to join me in this statement of silence.
Not Only Is Eclipse Difficult to Navigate
To whom it may concern (DA Staff and/or Wix staff)
As your consumers, we have a right to help make this site a better place for us to create and share art. However, you have denied us that right.
Since the announcement of Eclipse, many of us have been sending feedback, with some suggesting that they want the option to keep Classic Deviantart. Unfortunately, you have only done the bare minimum and the glaring issues that came with Eclipse are still there.
We have contacted the help desk, but their responses waved off our concerns. You did not address any of the issues you had, and continued this project without following any advice.
Since mid-autumn 2018, I've been seeing a number of legitimate-looking DeviantArt accounts who've been around for years and whose owners have, depending on the account, established decent bodies of work and have interacted in non-suspicious ways with other Deviants…but those were all years ago, and they're now suddenly and randomly adding my work as well as the of others to their favorites. I can tell the accounts are all being hijacked because every DeviantID or most recent status update of each hijacked page contains in its text a bogus link to a pornography Website.
And here's the creepiest part: half the hijacked accounts say that
I'm mostly a lurker here, though I did a bunch of The Legend of Zelda and Command & Conquer fan-art back in the day.
Mostly I'm still a Zelda fan, been playing Super Metroid / A Link to the Past Randomizer quite a bit lately.
Nice to meet you, all who read this page.
I'm Link8312, essentially a big Zelda and C&C fan. But that would be forgetting the whole bunch of webcomics I'm also a fan of.
Any other interest? Well, I lake playing Role-Play games with my friends (as a player or as the GM).
