The feedback button seems to have been changed into a help desk with no easy way to report bugs anymore (or at least no way that I can find?), so I can't send in this bug :(
I hope you guys can fix this bug because it makes navigating difficult when the panes start mushing together just by a short move of the mouse :(
Anyway, now that the old color scheme is available, eclipse is fine except:
Can you make it so that people don't have to favorite something to add it to one of their folders? Because I'm tired of sending (and receiving) two notifications per deviation when I want to sort them into folders.
And can you also make it so I can drag my deviations around to sort them in folders, instead of having to click an arrow to the right repeatedly to sort them? Or just add more sorting options!! On the old layout I can sort by oldest to newest, but on eclipse I have to just. Keep. Clicking. Until it finally gets to the bottom of the list :/
I agree. Why does the artist need to know what folder I put something in?
Also, we need drag and drop functionality with all folders. Moving my mouse to the bottom corner of the box and clicking a tiny arrow repeatedly is so tedious and cumbersome for the end user. Drag and drop is way more intuitive.
This is far more succinct than my original comment, thank u lol. Drag and drop functionality being removed from the site is such a downgrade, I'd been frustrated with even the old layout for ages without it.
Yeah, but, where to find another art community in which people are actively commenting and interacting with each other? It won't be ArtStation as far as I am concerned. Eclipse is such let down, it's gross. What I fear most is that people will forget what DeviantArt was before Eclipse and will deliberately think Eclipse is good cause they do not know better.
That is literally what happened with Skype.
I did not update Skype when it changed the UI back in 2013, I stopped using it when they killed off support for that version. I showed someone who had never seen what the old UI looked like, and right off the bat they said it looked 10x better than what it does now.
Accounts that are less than I think a year old cannot use the classic layout, artificially inflating the statistics of eclipse users.
Groups really need some work in my opinion. Folders fill up quickly so groups have to continually make new folders for the same topic. (Example: Digital Art 1, Digital Art 2, etc.) Staff can not easily move submissions during the submission process so artists have to resubmit their art again. Most of the groups appear to be dead in general. I wish there was an algorithm that showed me active groups that my friends are in, or that would be a good fit for my art. There are so many ways DA could improve groups. Also in Eclipse I'm not sure how to submit to groups, since only a handful show up.
