Also DA removed the "Webcam" widget :saddummy: They were automatically replaced by regular custom boxes with an image in them, but it's a lot smaller and I don't know how to get the original size back. Non-premiums now have nothing.

I happened to glance over to the right when I was commenting on that other poll and saw this xD

I was lucky enough to have a premium when this happened, but mine duplicated AND I HAD FOUR OF THESE DOWN MY PROFILE

I was really unhappy that the feature was removed, but then I went on my page and just four Shelleys dancing around xD (we were playing charades and she was the Hulk, but one of my friends kept guessing Shrek)

And ikr :stare:

They got rid of the webcam widget because people would replace it with HTML codes.
I'm still sad about it though. Sad dummy

Is is really that small for you? I put some GIFs in my "Random Favorites" widget, and they're a good size. :?

:iconspitfiresonice:
SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's not the same. Plus regular members cannot have a widget with the webcam alone.

I find that small, yes. For a GIF, those things on your page are a fine size, but I'm not happy with that being the maximum size.

MysticalWhisper Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True, and I agree.

Isn't there another HTML people can use to resize the images and GIFs? I'm unsure.

There used to be, but they recently changed something so that your widgets and stuff in them won't be as expandable and can only be a certain size.

Read this:

Save the webcams everyone! D: Plz we must work together! Spread the word plz #savethewebcams
we want to reach all the community and work together, if we work together maybe this time the da staff/admins could listen to us.
We don't want our webcams to be gone, we want them back. Please spread the word, this time the community will show them that together we can do it! Please... :c

DeviantART is removing the webcams and for premium members replaced them for custom boxes. However, once your pm is gone you also lose the webcam.
Something that was free for 10 years now you have to pay for it to have it... that's why we are tagging savethewebcams so maybe this time the admins could hear for real the community. :/ if you want to help, please spread the word.

The only thing that annoys me about it, is that it's a lot smaller. Other than that I don't mind it too much, as long as they don't start changing more widgets like that :c
