Images that are restricted to "watchers only" or "premium" should not be allowed in group galleries. Like how can you tell what's being submitted? Also its annoying when I check my groups to see 5 deviations that I can't even see. :/

I agree, as a group owner I would not admit. But the question is, if I am watching someone who submits a watchers only work, do I even see it's watchers only..? I just found out about these new features anyway, must research.

Yes, I think the images still have the watchers only green icon in the corner. :)

TeroPorthan's avatar

Yeah, I noticed it after! ;)

No problem, I wasn't completely sure until I checked too. :D

I'm not a member of any groups but I am finding the whole premium gallery thing extremely irritating. I get that DA and some deviants are trying to make money (good luck with that!) but to be faced with a full page of blurred out images on the watch tab is more than a trifle annoying!

The watchers only thing is not quite so bad. I don't have time for general browsing lately so I'm only looking at the new deviations from those I watch anyway, so I can see them fine. But what I have found is that you can add these to your favourites, but when you then go to edit in order to organize those favourites into different collections you can't do it; or at least you couldn't the last time I had one. What's the point of that exactly!

Add this to all the bugs that are constantly cropping up recently I am finding the whole DeviantArt experience more and more frustrating with each passing day. And I don't think I'm alone there! :shakefist:

All very good points! Ah yeah I agree, all these bugs and "improvements" are just frustrating. XC I often browse the front page and group pages myself, so I have noticed a lot more blurred images being recogmended to me which is just annoying. Also I'm not about to buy something when I don't know what I'm buying. lol That's just seems silly all around tbh.
