This week, we launched Eclipse to all deviants! We also introduced a handful of smaller updates and bug fixes. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!
Eclipse is Now Available to All Deviants!
All deviants now have access to Eclipse! The majority of DeviantArt traffic is viewing DeviantArt Eclipse rather than the old site, so be sure your profile showcases exactly what you want it to! Add a cover photo, customize which galleries are displayed, highlight your best work using spotlight sections, and add a custom section for anything else you’d like to share or promote!
Scraps are now the last folder in your gallery list. Thanks to everyone who suggested this!
On comment permalink pages, the line that shows the relationship between two comments was not displaying properly on the 2nd comment.
Improved the Eclipse "Hot Topics" feature, which will now include more updates about Eclipse, contests, community events, and more.

Three years ago I created a tutorial when DA came out with what was arguably my favorite new feature of all time: Status Updates. GONE were the days where I needed to use a poll or journal to get a simple thought or declaration of hilarity across to my watchers. GLORY BE!
The original tutorial was created to help others find this wonderful piece of the delicious DA pie and it's still relevant... But now there is this MASSIVE change coming in the form of DeviantArt Eclipse... So here is an entirely new one!
Eclipse is really enhancing the usability of status updates. I hope this tutorial will help you embrace the new ways to use Status Updat
We return again to shower you with knowledge and handy visuals. It's time to conquer Polls in this next "How To" for DeviantArt Eclipse! Polls are a fun and easy way to engage your watchers with any manner of questions and they have undergone some much needed improvements with some fun additions that you may want to take advantage of. We'll cover:
How to create a new poll;How to find polls you have posted; Finding polls from those you watch and :new: for Eclipse... how to find polls from anyone on DA!We'll end with a quick overview of what the poll page looks like! Ready!? No? The correct answer is YES. Here we go... :dummy:
Creating a Poll
The next tutorial in our "How to Eclipse" series is going to focus on Search and finding the artwork you want to see delivered right to your screen. I wrote a similar tutorial for projecteducate (https://www.deviantart.com/projecteducate) (noticing a pattern here?) a few years ago. A lot of the same principles still apply, but nonetheless, I am excited to bring you this refreshed version for the new DeviantArt!
Why is a Search Tutorial Necessary?
For some, it isn't at all. But some just want some extra guidance and DeviantArt has an overwhelming amount of artwork submitted to the community daily, weekly, monthly, foreverly (yep, I went there)... There is a lot to sort through. Knowin
Just when you thought it was over...
That's right, people! Time for the next How To Eclipse guide and when you're done learning everything there is to know about submitting your artwork to the new DeviantArt, you will become the next Submit Master (not to be confused with Pokemon Master). Submitting in Eclipse brings back some of the options we know well but adds some new features that will help your art be discovered by the community.
To get to Master level, we're covering the following topics:
How to Find Submit

Yes. At long last we are diving into the world of Eclipse journals! Prepare yourselves because this tutorial may beat them all as far as length goes. And by "beat" I mean it's gonna be longer...
Much longer. :meow:

In this week’s change log, we’ve introduced two major features; a highly-requested green theme and a personalized front page. We’ve also implemented one-click favouriting as well as a number of bug fixes and smaller improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!
Eclipse now has a simplified way to favorite deviations. Clicking on the “Add to Favourites” button now automatically favourites the deviation, with the option to add it to a collection immediately after.

Try Eclipse in its New Theme!
Many of you caught the clues in our DeviantArt: Behind the Scenes journal, but it’s now official: we’ve introduced a green theme to DeviantArt Eclipse! The green theme combines the new features and aesthetic of Eclipse, while providing a familiar green look for those who missed those familiar DeviantArt colors. For lovers of the dark and light themes, both will continue to exist and will be receiving additional refinements (particularly as related to contrast) in the upcoming weeks!

Based on the color scheme of classic DeviantArt, the new green theme is designed to help current deviants more easily transition into the world of Eclipse. With the addition of green, you can vary your Eclipse experience based on your personal preferences. While some people might pick one theme and stick with it

It is not often we bestow deviousness upon someone who is already a member of staff, but sometimes you need to bend those rules when there are exceptions to the rule like $Moonbeam13. She has been heading up the crew of Gallery Directors as head of Artist Relations for going on a year now, listening to suggestions from the community, enacting her own ideas, getting input from the volunteers, and bringing you massively cool contests. And that’s just some of the things she gets done in a single day. It is with great pride and a huge vote of “thanks” that we give deviousness to $Moonbeam13 on the verge of our 6th Anniversary!
Awarded Aug 2006
