Eclipse Week 1 Suggestions
Dear @team , here are some suggestions I have for Eclipse so far. I'm giving you these because I care about this site and wish for it to keep thriving, and I think these would help. The ones I think are most important are nearer to the top. 1: Please, please, PRETTY please bring back the "Newest" tab on the home page/in browsing!! Without this, this site is NOT friendly to new and/or less-viewed artists. They need eyeballs on their work and a "Newest" is how they're going to do it. I see that there is a sort of "meet these new deviants" on the homepage but that's not nearly as effective as having each new piece you submit appear on the home page for a bit. Every art site I've ever seen has its home page display the newest submissions and I can't imagine why you would remove this feature. 2: Please consider reinstating the Submission Categories. They were always very handy to use and I think they're a lot better than sorting everything into tags. At the very least, couldn't the
I know a lot of people are going nuts (in a not-so-good way!) over the new site style. I also know some of you said you would be staying, but I can't help but feel a bit of concern for the near-future of dA itself, given the very-heated feedback some people have been giving today and yesterday. ^^; I'M STILL NOT LEAVING THIS SITE ANY TIME SOON! But I AM considering branching out to other art sites as well, in case a sizeable-enough upheaval goes on here that is outside any of our controls. I'm really, really hoping that doesn't happen, and that all this upset will just calm down in time! :pray: I would be very sad if this site did crash and burn, especially if it meant that I couldn't interact with you dear folks anymore. :saddummy: This has kind of made me realize there's currently only one, potentially-fragile place that those interactions can happen! So, branching-out is probably something I will do eventually, once I find an alternate to settle upon. In the meantime, I feel
Eclipse and stuff
Hello everyone. I'm attempting to submit a journal via the 'Eclipse' mode of the site. Trying to get used to this mode and learn my way around it. I've heard a lot of people complaining and wanting to leave because they're making this change permanent. How many of you will be leaving too? I'm surely going to stick around, myself. This mode is certainly something to get used to, and I'm definitely not in love with it, but I'm not about to screech at it either... just kind of "meh" about it. xD A couple beefs I do have: One, the way we zoom in on art pieces. It used to be that you could view art at its full zoom AND still scroll down and see the description and all. Now you have to go up and click an X to get back to the main deviation page and it's a little clunky. Plus, it seems to zoom it to fit THE SIZE OF YOUR WINDOW, rather than the full trim size of the picture itself, making the resolution look horrible. ^^; Also, I can't seem to preview this journal. That's rather
