After days of frenzied refreshes and thoughts of canceling Christmas, the devART team are finally ready to release its newer, flashier baby to the world.

dAv2: phase 1 is a revamp in navigability and aesthetics. More practical than Segway and more captivating than mlife, v2 promises to bring you everything you liked about the original in a cleaner, easier to browse form. The only thing missing are the search function (code problem), DP and DS (which return later today when they are selected), and a Superbowl commercial with an ape.

These are exciting times for our fair community, as matteo (the closest thing we have to an ape) will be showing his pugly mug on techTV’s link(www.callforhelp.tv,Call for Help) February 22. The South by SouthWest Interactive People’s Choice Awards are still up for grabs, and dA is a contender! You’ve still got until noon (CST) March 1 to let SXSW officials know where you stand, so link(www.sxsw.com/interactive/web_awards/peopleschoice/,get over there).

Wait, did we say phase 1? That's correct, there's still even more exciting modifications gleaming just over the horizon for the site, ready for launch in the next two months.

Finally, in what kicked off dAv2 weekend, we would like to announce the following winners from our zany IRC contests. Much text flooding was witnessed by all who participated!

Mage- 1 month
Cype - 1 month
cottser - 1 month
mira – 1 month
oddfox - pop3 email
weze - pop3 email
wired - pop3 email
five - 1 month and pop3
exor - 1 month and pop3


Once again, the dA team thanks the coding ‘team’ for getting this done, and for your patience and support for making this happen!

Update: couple of issues that i want to explain:

1. deviantList is now combined with deviantWatch into one thing. configure it via your deviantWatch link. its self explanatory.

2. browsing is configurable under settings -> display -> Default browsing style.  switch between "standard," which is the old way, and "thumbnails."

3. the header is not yet configurable. enjoy DJ's creation for a bit. if you can not deal with that then tough...you have no choice!

4. classic.deviantart.com for nostalgia's sake.

5. the bug-tracker is disabled here. dont bother adding to it on the classic side either.

deviantAMP v2 by +dj-designs


grab deviantAMP II by DJ to go along with the site!

enjoy!

suprise suprise... even after the very first switch from the original numero uno version of deviant art, there are still people that were unhappy... its funny in hind site, because now we have such a beautiful site because of all the new versions, and people are still going to complain... just like after version 7! well, i love version seven, so thanks, and even though people complain, dA will always be great

pointless commentis pointless, but this news post is dA history... its cool to read!

New design shows a lot of work -- :: mad applause! :: But (ya knew there was a "but" coming, didn't you?) you can't browse this puppy in 800 x 600 resolution. I'm horizontal-scrolling like mad, and it's making me more than a bit crazy...

I went back to the "classic" format, which *was* good in 800 x 600, but it doesn't "hold" throughout the site -- when I go anywhere else, I get kicked back into version 2.

It's really nice and all. Is this green color your sort of trademark color? I'm getting kind of sick of it, but it's a real cool color.

Y'know, I've been using this for a week now, and the more I do the less I like the new format...

There are a slew of problems like download not working still, plus it's just a lot harder to navigate now, imho. :| (Mad)

Seems lowly 800x600 users have been forgotten. Makes browsing a bitch, and isn't the sign of a well planned website.
Looks nice though. Good work guys, excuse my bitter mood.

ooooo such great energy comes from the change! i love the silver meets phlegma colors ... i can almost hear the swoosh of the metallic areas closing and opening! and the width is nice ... there's space for everything.
but .. howcome the devamp differs so much in style from the new borders and buttons and everything? :o (Eek)

anyway, megatons of passions expressed towards the dear, dear admins!

Aside from the facts that it isn't compatible with 800x600 and that it takes longer to load, I fail to see what's so new about this.
