08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

I don't like the new deviation page. At all.
Those arrows on the sides are very distracting; I thought they'd change it before releasing the final version (yes I tested v7 before).
Also, what's up with that gigantic blue "add comment" button?

Version 6 was great, so why change? Just for the sake of changing? You amuse me, dA.

I'm in a rant mood today.

I agree. This new interface is too complicated... I like the old, old dA more. Back when I first joined. :(

I'm getting used to it, but I don't like it either. I think one problem is that they tried to combine so many things into single places, but, in doing so, only made navigation harder.

i came to read this after reading the filler journal XD yeah i dont like it either, what i hate the most is DA never tell people before they change anything, no warning or option to not change, they just change it if they feel like it. Thats not good customer...

I'm getting used to it... There's nothing we can do about it anyway :shrug:

I don't know how to search anymore :(
LuisaRafidi's avatar
I think you gotta click on the dA logo on the upper left corner >_> But that's kinda stupid.
Adella's avatar
I did but when I try to do a search it says "no results found" :( I must be doing something wrong.

Sometimes that happens to me, ever since v6 was around.

I so agree with you, it's not only that new look that disgusts me, it's also really... uncomfortable.
Fox88's avatar
Yeah, no, you're right. It feels horribly awkward.

And now all deviations are zoomed out instead of being in their original size when I open them. This can probably be changed somewhere but even so, why mess around in my settings?

Also, the URLs are weird now.

Oh well. Hopefully I'll get used to it.

You'll get used to it, just like the last one. No need to panic. And I'm sure they'll fix all those glitches people are talkin' about. :nod:

The custom daily deviation box doesn't work in v7 D:

Yeah, seems like a whimsical, unnecessary change.

Not only that, but I'm noticing a lot of glitchiness and absurd deviation resizes, and a touch of lag..

:icondoublefacepalmplz: Sigh.

Ugh, I know. The new page layout is just BLAH.

I agree with Raie here. Don't fix if not broken.

...OH WAIT RAIE'S HERE?

The imidiate thought when I logged on was "what the hell's goin' on?!?! Was DA hacked?! Is it like April fools day?!" but then i saw the new V7 thing and I was like "oh.....wait I just got used to the old one (since im sorta new) and now I have to get used to this one?!?!?!?!"

so ya...

I like the function of version 6 but the look of version 7. :) But I do dislike were they changed all the links and icons to. :(
podsolnukh's avatar
It's cleaner looking. Though I do not like having to search for my search bar. :(
LuisaRafidi's avatar
I think the deviation page is not cleared than v6 :\
podsolnukh's avatar
I meant deviants pages. I just now saw the deviation pages and those arrows are bothersome.

Agreed. It's getting really annoying how often they change things, especially when it seems there's nothing wrong with the original version...

Actually I have only one problem with this new version... the damn search bar!! Where did they leave it?? I use it a lot and it will take double the effort to my lazy self to find it... oh the life.
