________________________________


Welcome to DeviantArt's 2018 Halloween Game!


Let me introduce myself, my name is Moonbeam13 and I'm the assistant to our local mad scientist MattBMattB. Yes, you heard me right, Matt has gone mad. Highly inspired by the recent Bowsette phenomenon, he hoped to come up with an equally polarizing and notorious character. He thus began running experiments in a in a new laboratory DeviantArt helped him set up. However, things quickly took a dark turn....and something nefarious has now come our way....

MattBMattB's most recent experiment went terribly wrong, and the resulting creatures have now escaped and are running loose all over DeviantArt. We managed to capture a few before they escaped, but there are still many of these creatures tearing through the site. We need your help finding, capturing and exterminating them all! They appear to be a mix between Gremlins and Vultures.... Please tell me you're up for the challenge?! Sherlock Holmes 

How it works...


You'll need to search through the belongings of our mad scientist's team, in addition to searching through the locations he has worked in and the many tools he has used in his nefarious experiments. This way, you will be able to find clues which will help you find these evil creatures before they tear the site down! I went ahead and put together a list of all the places you'll need to search for clues....

The Mad Scientist's Assistant 
The Mad Scientist's Minion #1 
The Mad Scientist's Minion #2 
The Mad Scientist's Minion #3 
One of the captured Gremtures 
The Mad Scientist's Wife 
The Mad Scientist's botched experiment 
The Mad Scientist's Videographer 
Groundskeeper 
Beaker 
Dungeon
Hidden Cave 
Walk in freezer
Saw 
Rib spreader 
Scalpel 
Exam Table

What to do...


Go to each profile page listed above. Each person, item or location will have a clue hidden somewhere on their page telling you where you might find one of the Gremtures (Gremlin+Vulture...get it?). Oftentimes, the clue will involve solving a puzzle or a riddle of sorts. Keep going until you find all the Gremtures infiltrating the site and can complete the picture of them!

Careful, though, these Gremtures could be ANYWHERE on DeviantArt so you will need to very carefully analyze and understand each clue you find! Pumpkin

To help you out, here is one of the pieces of the final picture you'll need to put together...find the rest quickly!

Initial Journal By Thiefoworld-dcqd4xa by Mrs-Durden

Hurry Up!


You have until November 2nd at 11:59 PM PST (Los Angeles) to find all of the Gremtures and send the picture of them to the Mad Scientist's wife! The first three people to do so will be the winners. 

HOWEVER, one person will need to exterminate the Gremtures. Anyone having sent in an image of all the Gremtures by November 2nd at 11:59 PM PST will be eligible to exterminate the Gremtures, meaning even if you weren't one of the 3 winners, you have a bonus chance to win a prize and save the day! 

November 3rd, at 3AM PST, the Mad Scientist's Wife will reply to everyone having sent her a picture of all the Gremtures with a puzzle....the first person to send the puzzle properly solved back to her will win the extra prize and gain the power to exterminate the Gremtures!

The Rules


  • Work alone. The 3 first participants to send the picture of the Gremtures taking over DA to The Mad Scientist's Wife will be the winners -- you don't want to risk not making it into that top 3 by helping other people.
  • You may NOT note any of the other relatives, lackeys, dwellings or tools of the Mad Scientist to ask them any question whatsoever.
  • You may only come to me (Moonbeam13) for more hints and tips. But you can only ask me ONE question per day (so 3 questions TOTAL), otherwise, you're off to the dungeon!
  • So to recap -  The only 2 people you should ever note for this game are either me (the Mad Scientist's Assistant) if you are in dire need for help and the Mad Scientist's Wife, once you have completed the game and can turn in the photo of all the Gremtures infiltrating DeviantArt.
  • Again, seriously, don't send notes to people. They won't answer anyways Stare

Prizing


Now you might be wondering why on earth you'd put in so much time and effort to save us from these Gremtures, after all, they might be fun! Heck, they even look quite cute, but don't be fooled!...well beyond saving the day...I will also be awarding 2,000 points and a 6 month premium membership each to the 3 first people to send the photo of the Gremtures to The Mad Scientist's Wife!

As for the person who ends up exterminating them all...you'll win a 3 month core membership and 1,000 points!

Scared and confused?


If you find yourself confused during your quest for the Gremtures on DA, as previously mentioned, you may ask me questions for help. However, in the midst of all this chaos, I am quite busy. You are allowed to ask me ONE question via note, per day, which is 3 questions total. If you go beyond this, you will be disqualified and sent off to the dungeon! 

P.S:

Keep an eye out for chat and forum games on the 31st of October for chances to win extra prizes and have some extra spooky fun! La la la la Pumpkin The schedule can be found here: Halloween Chat and Forum Events!

Only one piece from victory.  I won’t say where one of the clues for the Hidden Cave’s puzzle is supposed to be hidden, but I think the artist forgot to include a sta.sh link. I know because I did the Firefox trick that reveals all the links on the page and found nothing worthwhile.

Eclipse Change Log: December 12, 2018

This week, nearly the whole DeviantArt team — encompassing staff members from Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, Kiev, and Vancouver, to name a few — has come together at our HQ in Hollywood to focus on Eclipse and plan what’s in store for 2019.

As a reminder, we’re continuing to work on the bigger community feedback concerns — including customization and improvements to Feedback — and we hope to share more soon.

Since the holidays are coming up, and many people on our team are traveling or taking time off, we won’t have a change log to share for a short while. But we want to let you all know that we are continuing to review and analyze your feedback, and we look forward to sharing more updates with you early next year!

Change Log

Literature descriptions are back! (Popular request!)After replying to a comment in Feedback, the notification is now automatically removed. (Popular request!)Comment link pages now have "parent" and "top" buttons, and are now centered for easy readability. (Popular request!)Scraps are back!You can now mention a deviant just by typing (rather than selecting them from the list).The Gift dropdown on profile now tells you when you've already given them a llama or they are full of cake. Removed minimum character count in Status Updates and Journals, allowing deviants to share a post that simply includes a deviation, gallery, or video.

News plz by PeppermintSoda

Thank You for Your Feedback on Eclipse!

Last week, we announced the Beta launch of DeviantArt Eclipse — a completely redesigned version of DeviantArt that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. As a Beta release, Eclipse is still under development and only available to a small portion of the DeviantArt community. We use the Beta release to gather feedback that allows us to closely analyze deviant engagement and sentiment.

Over 4,000 deviants have already tried Eclipse and many have shared their invaluable and much-appreciated feedback. We’ve received nearly 1,700 individual Eclipse feedback reports — including 407 bug reports, 532 feature requests, and 748 pieces of general commentary. Our team has read through and triaged over 60% of these reports and has a goal of completing all of them in the coming week. Thank you to every deviant who has taken the time to share feedback. Whether you’re someone who provided a few words or several paragraphs of candid response, we appreciate the passion you have for helping us ensure Eclipse will meet the needs of our diverse community.

This Is Just the Beginning of Eclipse

As with most Beta releases, we launched Eclipse knowing there were bugs and highlighted a handful of the most obvious in our release journal. We wanted to release sooner than later so we can begin this journey together – gathering feedback and insights and applying it into our development, fixes, and improvements. Plus, as Beta Testers, this is what you signed up for! We need your deviant-expertise to help identify bugs everything from baby bugs to elusive, exotic bugs.

Based on feedback, it’s clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the “green site.” It’s also clear there are some things that need to be improved. We expected this and continue to welcome your feedback — the good and the bad. We’re in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.

We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your Profile

Eclipse provides new ways to personalize your Profile, including the ability to select Header Art for your page, linking to your social media platforms, and stating your commission status. However, with the removal of Custom Box, we heard, loud and clear, that deviants want more options to display content.We’re also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.We’ll be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, here’s one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipse’s current abilities to enhance her Profile.
Many deviants asked for the ability to showcase a single deviation on your profile. This is something we are already working on. We’d also like to clarify that, for the foreseeable future, Custom Boxes within Groups will remain as they are. Groups will eventually be redesigned with Eclipse in mind, but that process won’t be complete for many months. We’ll provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.

Addressing Your Other Top Concerns

The new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, we’ve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report it’s cumbersome to remove notifications and it’s hard to remove notifications in bulk. We’ll be making the “remove” button more accessible so that you can one-click remove (or one-click save) just as you could on the “green site.” We’re still reviewing the experience of mass removing feedback and hope to have updates soon.We are currently working on issues regarding Header Art and avatars – specifically, their size and quality. Icon codes and plz accounts will be coming soon to Eclipse. :iconlaplz:The new text editor makes it easy to write Literature, with the option to add formatting and illustrations to your work. That said, the Literature experience in Eclipse is still a work in progress. As we mentioned in the Beta journal, using Literature and journal thumbnails is not yet finished. Literature thumbnails in the sidebar (under “More Like This”) are also not yet finished.Improving the display of Literature thumbnails is something our Product and UX teams are already actively working on improving.Having a “Show More” link on deviation descriptions and comments allows for a cleaner viewing experience; however, based on feedback, we've removed "Show More" from deviation descriptions and comments.While search in Gallery, Favourites, and Journals didn’t make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, it’s our aim to bring this functionality to Eclipse.Several deviants brought up that the ability to include thumbs by pasting a URL (or thumb code) is not currently possible. We mentioned this in the original announcement, but we want to reiterate this is not working as intended and will be implemented in the future.

Of course, this isn’t a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and we’ll be sharing more responses and updates — including bug fixes — in the weeks ahead.

Keep it Coming!

In the release process, things are constantly evolving as we gain insights and implement updates. Please keep in mind these updates can take time to get used to. As you continue to explore Eclipse, share your thoughts and concerns through the Eclipse overall feedback or bug report/feature request forms. While we encourage general discussion in the journal comments, using the official form allows us to triage and act on feedback in a quicker, more manageable way.

We also want to give a shout-out to the amazing deviants who’ve produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:

Again, thank you to everyone! With your feedback, we’ve filed numerous bugs and our developers are working on them continually.

When adding a bio to your Eclipse profile, we'll start you off with your bio from the old site. Please keep in mind that some elements, such as thumbnails, were not able to be transitioned to the new editor, however you can still add them to your bio. We recommend trying the new image and gallery features to share your favorite artwork in your bio.Also note that due to migration issues, bios of deviants who are not on Eclipse are static, meaning if they update them on the old site, the changes will not be reflected on Eclipse until that deviant switches to Eclipse and edits their bio using the new editor.

Eclipse Change Log: November 28, 2018

Thank you for your continued feedback and bug reports on DeviantArt Eclipse!

Our team has been working on customization and personalization options and we have brainstorming sessions planned where we’ll be further discussing how you’ll be able to customize and personalize your profile in Eclipse. We’ve been gathering and sorting your feedback, including the top ways you use Custom Box, and we’ll be reviewing it in these brainstorm sessions. We will have more to share soon!

In the meantime, we’re still working on other customization features already in the design stages, including editing your bio and custom cropping of your profile header art. We’ve seen some creative ways people are featuring single deviations on their profile (for example, see @ellysiumn and @katy-l-wood’s profiles), and we’re working on the ability to more-easily feature a single deviation on your profile.

Here’s this week’s change log!

Change Log

Header art quality on profiles has improved. If your header art is blurry, ensure that the original deviation is available as high resolution under “Display Options.” (Thanks, @queen-kitty, @titusweiss, @kaleidechse, @battlefairies, @yuukon, and several others who brought this up!)Fixed issues where typing in a URL in a Journals, comment, or Status Update would display the URL twice.Removed minimum character limit from Status Updates, allowing you to post a Status Update that just includes a deviation, gallery, video, or emoticon.You can now open and close Commissions from the individual Commission page.A “back to top” button added to galleries and browse pages.Badge pages are back!After posting a comment, the browser now scrolls to your comment.The toggle for Mature Content now reads “Show Mature Content” instead of “Mature Content” to prevent confusion. (Thanks for the tip, @rotane and @uszatyarbuz!)Fixed issue where tooltips would not display when hovering over the Add Deviation/Gallery/Video/Emoticon buttons on Comments, Journals, or Status Updates.Fixed issue where the “Send Note” button on profiles would open a new note with no recipient. (Thanks for spotting, @nominee84 and @mrs-durden!)Fixed issue where literature Daily Deviations displayed title twice. (Good catch, @3wyl!)The header image for Commissions is now centered.Updated the design of the “I’m open for commissions” button to make it look more prominent and clickable.Fixed issue where bolded text in comments would appear as a different color but not bold.After clearing out your notifications, the “no notifications here right now” message would be misaligned. (Thanks, @starlighthawk, @ikazon, and @sweetchimera!)Various other smaller bug fixes and changes.

What's Next for Eclipse: FeedbackLate last year, we released the beta version of DeviantArt Eclipse – a redesign that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. It’s one of our biggest, most ambitious updates to date, which is why we’ve chosen to open it to Beta Testers as early as we did. Not only do we need Beta Testers’ help locating and squashing those pesky bugs, we want to gain deviants’ feedback, thoughts, and opinions on the current Eclipse experience and what we should include in the future. We’re very proud and excited with the level of collaboration we’ve been able to achieve with the DeviantArt community, and we hope to continue this as we further develop Eclipse.The Beta version of Eclipse has brought many changes (see them here), with even more in store, including ways to customize and personalize Profiles! We Hear You!Since the Beta launch of Eclipse late last year, we’ve received a lot of feedback regarding just that: Feedback. You might have called it a few other names in the past: Feedback, Message Center, Notifications, etc. Let’s establish what Feedback is: it’s comments and replies made on your art, any mentions of you or your art, and correspondence with other deviants and groups. We processed and analyzed your thoughts and opinions on Feedback, and how cumbersome it had become to interact with friends on Eclipse. With that, we’re excited to show you some major updates in the works.Changes We’re Making Based on Your FeedbackNew NavigationYou can now easily access Feedback by clicking on the bell icon next to your avatar, with all the different areas visible for you to filter through. Just a simple click and you can filter to view only your comments or only your mentions.One-Click RemoveA popular request from several Beta Testers! With one, easy click of a mouse you can tidy up Feedback to your exact liking. Multi-Remove & Multi-SaveEnjoy a more seamless process of removing multiple notifications in an efficient manner, or saving some of your favorite Feedback moments.Let Us Know!We understand how important being involved and embedded in the DeviantArt community is, and we hope the updated Feedback helps you connect and communicate more easily. These upcoming updates will be announced in @danlev's weekly change logs as soon as they are live. Share with us in the comments what you look forward to using in Feedback, as well as anything else you’d like to see improved!Got something else on your mind?

Eclipse Change Log: February 20, 2019In this week's change log, we've updated literature pages — a popular request from the community — as well as a handful of bug fixes and improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!Improved Literature Deviation Page DesignAnother popular request from the community was to improve the design of literature deviation pages and put the actual writing front and center. Thanks to @battlefairies, @jcoolarts, @thebigeasy66, @queen-kitty, and the many others who shared their feedback on literature!Try it out: Memories, Light the Corners of our Minds by @srsmithChange LogAbility to submit a Journal to a Group has been added! Click the “New Journal” button on a Group’s Journal tab to submit directly to that Group.You can now edit older literature deviations in Eclipse. (Thanks for pointing out, @dc-26 and @littlekhajiit!)The Daily Deviation page now includes three days by default (instead of two), with a "show more" button at the bottom.While using browse or search, your previously selected sort mode will be preserved when you switch back and forth between Status Updates, Polls, and Commissions.After clicking a deviation from browse or search then clicking the back button, you'll now return to the correct position in the results rather than the beginning.When a deviant gives you Points, the notifications dropdown would display "[deviant] gave you..." without including the amount of Points given.Eclipse journals would be cut off on smaller screens on the old site.Clicking “View Log” on a Group admin notification would link to an error page.On Feedback, the timestamp on comments and replies now links to the comment’s permalink page so you can see the full context of a conversation. When italicizing, bolding, or underlining a heading, the headline would break onto multiple linesTimestamps on Feedback notifications are now clearer. (A notification from 3 months ago now displays as the actual date rather than “3m” which could also be confused as 3 minutes ago.)Daily Deviations page now includes a “Back to Top” button.The account reactivation page (restoring your account after deactivating it) has been moved to Settings rather than your profile page. This fixes an issue were deviants would need to switch back to the old site to reactivate if they deactivated while in Eclipse. This change is now live on the old site as well.Deviation descriptions that were made from the old site now properly preserve formatting on Eclipse.Fixed issue where mature content would be visible in Polls, Status Updates, Drafts and a few other places, even if your mature content filter was on.Fixed issues where font sizes would sometimes be smaller in some comments.Keep Sharing Your Feedback!Submit a bug or feature requestSubmit your overall feedback about DeviantArt Eclipse
