Minecraft: Adorabolical House of Flowers
We're going to take a look at my build on Mindcrack Island! MI was a PlayMindcrack attraction where players could buy plots and build a world together, on an island filled with areas themed after the then-29 members of Mindcrack. Unfortunately, lack of attention from developers and Mindcrackers led to interest petering out, but I looked at it and took it as a challenge to make something neat with a limited area and limited selection of blocks. And since I'm a big fan of Team Adorabolical and cuteness in general, I created the Adorabolical House of Flowers at the Adorabolical border on Rellybits's side! These were the palettes I had to work with.

As you approach the Adorabolical House of Flowers from spawn or Aureylian's portal at night, it glows to greet you~

FAQMan's Code of Conduct
Fight ignorance and promote knowledge.
Be there for anyone who needs a little help.
Examine everything with the deepest scrutiny, and ask questions frequently.
Show deviants the way down the path of awesome.
Practice stealth and concealment, and if you realize that someone is watching you, thank them.
Stay level-headed. Never let your rage show itself... except on those who disregard FAQ #873.
Never reveal your secret identity. Your pointy ears and disconnected hands/feet are a bit of a giveaway, but the idea is to never allow your identity to be definitively known.

400 Warming Christmas And Winter Images
I love this time of year.
There are so many ways to capture the wonder that is Christmas and the beauty that is winter.
This collection shows some artists who are well seasoned and highly known and praised, as well as artists unknown, and some who still have much to learn - all have talent, and all deserve our attention!

Work on the long-awaited skins feature for Deviant Love is underway, but has hit a snag. This arose from a desire to provide two important features of skins:
  • Skins will be written in CSS, granting skin authors the full power of CSS to give Deviant Love a makeover.
  • Skins will be distributed as deviations - users can explore Deviant Love skins as they'd explore any other artwork on DeviantArt, and Deviant Love will detect them and provide an installation button on the deviation page.
The original idea to achieve these goals was to have the skin just be a CSS file, which you'd upload to DeviantArt as the downloadable file along with a preview image. Unfortunately, it seems that uploading any plain text file, even one with .css or other file extensions, causes DeviantArt to treat your skin as a literature deviation, with all its text to be displayed on the website. Setting a preview image just displays it as a header above the text.

There are a few ways I could work around this:
  • Just roll with it and have Deviant Love detect the "literature" text as a skin - I'm leaning heavily against this option. Users deserve better than having a bunch of code thrown onscreen.
  • Require that the CSS be put into a .zip file
  • Require that the CSS be added as metadata to an image, allowing a single file to serve as both the skin and the image shown on DeviantArt, similar to how PICO-8 cartridges work
For the latter two options, I could create a service where you'd load your CSS file and have it processed into the appropriate file type. This would also let me add some metadata to your skin, such as which version of Deviant Love it's meant for - but this metadata could just as easily be something you'd write yourself as a CSS comment.

Today's stable release is named after the Pokémon move that Extreme Evoboost is an upgrade for, and is based on the work that went into the latest 3.0 preview.

3.0 Improvements for Everyone


The redesigned full subaccounts editor and updated bottom bar tips from Deviant Love 3.0 Alpha 4 have been backported for everyone to enjoy, whether they're willing to try the 3.0 previews or not. Do note, however, that this is just a taste of the work I've been putting into 3.0, and I could use your feedback to make sure it's all on the right track! Please join alpha testing!

Get It


Deviant Love 3.0 Alpha 4 makes a lot of design changes to Deviant Love, and I could really use your feedback to make sure I'm on the right track! Please give it a try and let me know on any issues you have, and let your watchers know about it, too!
I've completed a lot of work in need of your feedback! This release, named after Eevee's signature Z-Move that gives it a tremendous all-around boost, touches on a lot of aspects of Deviant Love's design to make it more appealing, more functional, and fully touchscreen-ready!

Deviant Display Redesign


The way Deviant Love displays an artist's info has received a variety of improvements. Let's break them down:

v3.0a4 Deviant by pikadudeno1

1. If Deviant Love was successful in reading your watch list but you're not watching this particular artist's gallery, this icon now appears in silhouette. This brings it in line with my original intention for this icon, which was to point out whose galleries you *weren't* watching so that you can go correct that!

2. This new area appears only if you're using a touchscreen. It explains the gallery watch icon and provides a nice-sized tap target to get to this artist's subaccounts.

3. With "Subaccounts" moved to the above area and "Favourites" relabeled to "Faves", I was able to make this area narrower while making the buttons bigger and friendlier.

Mini Subaccounts Editor Redesign


Formerly known as the "in-report subaccounts editor", this editor has been overhauled, moving it to display over the artist's list of faved artwork, and optimizing it for the use case of checking on the subaccounts you've already added. Don't forget, as of Alpha 3 the full subaccounts editor is now just an Options click away.

v3.0a4 Mini Subaccounts by pikadudeno1

Full Subaccounts Editor Redesign


Said editor has also gotten a redesign. The changes here are strictly cosmetic, but still useful - color and spacing are employed to visually distinguish each subaccount owner.

v3.0a4 Full Subaccounts by pikadudeno1

Minor Improvements


When Find's results consist of nothing but 1 deviant, Deviant Love now opens their list of faved artwork automatically. This will be even more helpful when find-as-you-type is added in a future 3.0 preview release.

With touchscreen support complete, work has begun on making Deviant Love better for small touchscreens; in other words, Android phones! When Find or Options is open, the bottom bar is hidden to make more room for them.

Speaking of which, the bottom bar's tips have been revised. It'll now promote the forum's Welcome Center and my Ko-Fi page.

Behind the Scenes: Fluent in Svelte-speak


The interface's HTML is now fully managed by Svelte; this makes it easy for me to add new UI and ensure that things react to changes in data the way they're supposed to, using as little CPU work as possible. Additionally, Project Fluent has been introduced; it'll give a lot more power to translators once I start accepting their work in version 3.1, but even before then I can use it to make the English text better. No more of that "noun(s)" silliness!

Join Testing


Firefox: Install the preview release and it will replace the stable release, keeping its settings. You can reinstall the stable release if you change your mind later.

Chrome: Get Deviant Love Preview and it will run alongside the stable version. There is no way to transfer settings between the stable & preview versions; let me know if you would like to see one.

The Future


I'd like to focus on other projects for a bit, so likely all you'll see for the rest of 2018 is version 2.5.5 and any critical bugfixes needed. In the meantime, the roadmap has been updated with new discussion items, and any feedback you have on the roadmap, this version, or skin delivery will be considered for when I swing back to Deviant Love! See you then!
