Return of the DeviantMeet: Burbank, California!It’s been a while, but DeviantMeets are back in style! On April 18th, deviants gathered at Studio Buckman in Burbank, California for a fun, free DeviantMeet featuring art creation, a wall-sprawling timeline of DeviantArt history, a guided tour of DeviantArt Eclipse, delicious empanadas, and more.We arrived at Studio Buckman to get things set up before the fun was set to start, and in true DeviantMeet fashion, we had a few super deviants arrive early! It didn’t take long to get the ball rolling, though, and in no time a few of the early guests had sat down at a table and were creating!As more deviants arrived, people started to make friends with one another, some driving in from as far as Bakersfield just to hang out and meet like-minded artists! It was exciting to see so many people make it, especially for a Thursday night! We had some DeviantArt t-shirts, stress balls, and stickers for attendees to bring home with them, as well, as our thanks for them stopping by! It didn’t take long for the studio to fill with chatter and laughter as deviants started to break the ice with one another, drawing together or talking about mutual interests, or in some cases, hopping in front of the photo booth to create a gif with Fella! The DeviantArt timeline on the wall highlighted some of the special moments in DeviantArt’s history, and one of the reasons we put it up on the wall was so that deviants could put their username on a post-it note and put it up on the wall around the time they joined the community! By the end of the event, the timeline had a bunch of green post-it notes on it!A Team Effort While we were the ones hosting the DeviantMeet, we also had a really great time taking part, too! Here’s what a few team members had to say about the return of the DeviantMeet experience!“The first DeviantMeet in recent years was absolutely amazing. While I love chatting with Deviants on the platform, there was something so special being able to converse face to face. I really appreciated all the conversations that I was able to be a part of, and the art created throughout the night. Plus, I'm so honored that some deviants came from hours away. What dedication!” -@ggmattb “DeviantArt is such a special community made up of so many unique and creative people and DeviantMeets are a wonderful opportunity to meet some of them in person. I hope we can create these opportunities around the world for all Deviants to enjoy.” -@lollycavalier “I thought the DeviantMeet was a very unique opportunity to meet our local Deviants and connect with on a personal level. I was excited to hear everyone’s story of how they had gotten into DeviantArt and how it had been instrumental as a source of comfort for their formative years, embracing how this special online community really shaped them.” -@likasmyles “Everyone was so friendly and so quick to make friends with each other. Within a few minutes of walking in the door, people started introducing themselves to each other, drawing together, and exchanging usernames.” -@danlev “This was my first DeviantMeet, and after hearing so much about how they were in previous years, it was a wonderful experience to actually be part of one for the first time. It was fun to meet so many deviants, hang out with my favorite people, and just, well, chill!” -@akiestar “It was so cool to see first-hand how much DeviantArt and the Community mean to the artists. It makes me want to work harder for them.” -@heyheybuddy “DeviantMeets have always been one of my favorite community events, and it was exciting to be able to see everyone in person again! I especially loved the timeline on the wall, and seeing how it filled out as deviants added their usernames to it.” -@ikazon “I really enjoyed being able to meet with the artists using our platform face to face. It was cool to make human connections with them. It was energizing, I loved it!” -@heartsunlocked “This was my first DeviantMeet, and I’m so glad it won’t be my last. Getting a chance to meet with deviants in person, discuss their art and interests, and provide some insight on Eclipse was incomparable.” -@humblehills “The DeviantMeet was awesome for me as a relatively new staff member to meet members of our community and hear how the site we work on every day makes an impact on their lives. It also was insane how much talent was in that one room. The quality of the art on the wall when the night wrapped up blew me away.” -@mattinreallife "It’s always exciting to meet deviants and to learn about who is behind each avatar. I particularly enjoy hearing about everyone's hobbies, both artistic and otherwise." -@heidiAttendees! @thejr7744, @nightsmudge, @midnight-vixen, @tomboy-comics, @shadowdrawapp, @helluva-sketch, @korosenaikibo, @nhyra, @pixsoda, @inkydelight, @3holer, @pbdotman, @howardshum, @mayorlight, @kludges, @oc3an-li0ns, @virtual-sg, @neogs99, @fablepaint, @dragon-hobbit101, @sketchh22, @scepterdpinoy, @shon2, @gerarduht, @bobvance, @elko-photography, @spyed, @heidi, @ekud, @wannabby, @ggmattb, @lollycavalier, @danlev, @kietz, @heyheybuddy, @heartsunlocked, @humblehills, @ikazon, @likasmyles, @akiestar, @mattinreallife, @adrenalina518, @withloveandheart Check out what others had to say about the DeviantMeet!DEVIANTMEET - Los-Angeles by @ggmattb So I checked out that DeviantMeet thing yesterday by @kludges DeviantMeet: The Aftermath by @nightsmudge Video from @thejr7744 Photos by @scepterdpinoy T-shirt Photo by @tomboy-comics Photo with Fella by @korosenaikibo It may have been a few years since our last official DeviantMeet, but the spirit of the community was as bright as ever, and we can’t wait to do more events like this! Where do you think we should go next? We’ve held DeviantMeets across the globe in places like London, Sydney, Singapore, Warsaw, and more! Should we go back to some of these places? Should head somewhere new? Let us know!

We recommend trying the new image and gallery features to share your favorite artwork in your bio.Also note that due to migration issues, bios of deviants who are not on Eclipse are static, meaning if they update them on the old site, the changes will not be reflected on Eclipse until that deviant switches to Eclipse and edits their bio using the new editor.

Thank You for Your Feedback on Eclipse!

Last week, we announced the Beta launch of DeviantArt Eclipse — a completely redesigned version of DeviantArt that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. As a Beta release, Eclipse is still under development and only available to a small portion of the DeviantArt community. We use the Beta release to gather feedback that allows us to closely analyze deviant engagement and sentiment.

Over 4,000 deviants have already tried Eclipse and many have shared their invaluable and much-appreciated feedback. We’ve received nearly 1,700 individual Eclipse feedback reports — including 407 bug reports, 532 feature requests, and 748 pieces of general commentary. Our team has read through and triaged over 60% of these reports and has a goal of completing all of them in the coming week. Thank you to every deviant who has taken the time to share feedback. Whether you’re someone who provided a few words or several paragraphs of candid response, we appreciate the passion you have for helping us ensure Eclipse will meet the needs of our diverse community.

This Is Just the Beginning of Eclipse

As with most Beta releases, we launched Eclipse knowing there were bugs and highlighted a handful of the most obvious in our release journal. We wanted to release sooner than later so we can begin this journey together – gathering feedback and insights and applying it into our development, fixes, and improvements. Plus, as Beta Testers, this is what you signed up for! We need your deviant-expertise to help identify bugs everything from baby bugs to elusive, exotic bugs.

Based on feedback, it’s clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the “green site.” It’s also clear there are some things that need to be improved. We expected this and continue to welcome your feedback — the good and the bad. We’re in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.

We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your Profile

Eclipse provides new ways to personalize your Profile, including the ability to select Header Art for your page, linking to your social media platforms, and stating your commission status. However, with the removal of Custom Box, we heard, loud and clear, that deviants want more options to display content.We’re also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.We’ll be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, here’s one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipse’s current abilities to enhance her Profile.
Many deviants asked for the ability to showcase a single deviation on your profile. This is something we are already working on. We’d also like to clarify that, for the foreseeable future, Custom Boxes within Groups will remain as they are. Groups will eventually be redesigned with Eclipse in mind, but that process won’t be complete for many months. We’ll provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.

Addressing Your Other Top Concerns

The new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, we’ve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report it’s cumbersome to remove notifications and it’s hard to remove notifications in bulk. We’ll be making the “remove” button more accessible so that you can one-click remove (or one-click save) just as you could on the “green site.” We’re still reviewing the experience of mass removing feedback and hope to have updates soon.We are currently working on issues regarding Header Art and avatars – specifically, their size and quality. Icon codes and plz accounts will be coming soon to Eclipse. :iconlaplz:The new text editor makes it easy to write Literature, with the option to add formatting and illustrations to your work. That said, the Literature experience in Eclipse is still a work in progress. As we mentioned in the Beta journal, using Literature and journal thumbnails is not yet finished. Literature thumbnails in the sidebar (under “More Like This”) are also not yet finished.Improving the display of Literature thumbnails is something our Product and UX teams are already actively working on improving.Having a “Show More” link on deviation descriptions and comments allows for a cleaner viewing experience; however, based on feedback, we've removed "Show More" from deviation descriptions and comments.While search in Gallery, Favourites, and Journals didn’t make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, it’s our aim to bring this functionality to Eclipse.Several deviants brought up that the ability to include thumbs by pasting a URL (or thumb code) is not currently possible. We mentioned this in the original announcement, but we want to reiterate this is not working as intended and will be implemented in the future.

Of course, this isn’t a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and we’ll be sharing more responses and updates — including bug fixes — in the weeks ahead.

Keep it Coming!

In the release process, things are constantly evolving as we gain insights and implement updates. Please keep in mind these updates can take time to get used to. As you continue to explore Eclipse, share your thoughts and concerns through the Eclipse overall feedback or bug report/feature request forms. While we encourage general discussion in the journal comments, using the official form allows us to triage and act on feedback in a quicker, more manageable way.

We also want to give a shout-out to the amazing deviants who’ve produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:

Again, thank you to everyone! With your feedback, we’ve filed numerous bugs and our developers are working on them continually.

Eclipse Change Log: February 20, 2019In this week's change log, we've updated literature pages — a popular request from the community — as well as a handful of bug fixes and improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!Improved Literature Deviation Page DesignAnother popular request from the community was to improve the design of literature deviation pages and put the actual writing front and center. Thanks to @battlefairies, @jcoolarts, @thebigeasy66, @queen-kitty, and the many others who shared their feedback on literature!Try it out: Memories, Light the Corners of our Minds by @srsmithChange LogAbility to submit a Journal to a Group has been added! Click the “New Journal” button on a Group’s Journal tab to submit directly to that Group.You can now edit older literature deviations in Eclipse. (Thanks for pointing out, @dc-26 and @littlekhajiit!)The Daily Deviation page now includes three days by default (instead of two), with a "show more" button at the bottom.While using browse or search, your previously selected sort mode will be preserved when you switch back and forth between Status Updates, Polls, and Commissions.After clicking a deviation from browse or search then clicking the back button, you'll now return to the correct position in the results rather than the beginning.When a deviant gives you Points, the notifications dropdown would display "[deviant] gave you..." without including the amount of Points given.Eclipse journals would be cut off on smaller screens on the old site.Clicking “View Log” on a Group admin notification would link to an error page.On Feedback, the timestamp on comments and replies now links to the comment’s permalink page so you can see the full context of a conversation. When italicizing, bolding, or underlining a heading, the headline would break onto multiple linesTimestamps on Feedback notifications are now clearer. (A notification from 3 months ago now displays as the actual date rather than “3m” which could also be confused as 3 minutes ago.)Daily Deviations page now includes a “Back to Top” button.The account reactivation page (restoring your account after deactivating it) has been moved to Settings rather than your profile page. This fixes an issue were deviants would need to switch back to the old site to reactivate if they deactivated while in Eclipse. This change is now live on the old site as well.Deviation descriptions that were made from the old site now properly preserve formatting on Eclipse.Fixed issue where mature content would be visible in Polls, Status Updates, Drafts and a few other places, even if your mature content filter was on.Fixed issues where font sizes would sometimes be smaller in some comments.Keep Sharing Your Feedback!Submit a bug or feature requestSubmit your overall feedback about DeviantArt Eclipse
Devious Dreams: The winners!The Devious Dreams campaign launched in March 2019 as a chance for DeviantArt to grant artists the tools they need to make their creative evolution a reality. With over $20,000 in prizing available to make dreams come true, thousands of deviants shared a wide range of creative and heartfelt dreams for their artistic future. We particularly enjoyed seeing the support everyone put forward for each others’ creative goals. Now that the campaign has come to a close, it is our honor to announce the recipients of Devious Dreams grants—a collective of artists from all walks of life with a broad spectrum of creative ideas. Some of these deviants requested drawing tablets so they can create every day. Others asked for traditional art supplies, or photography tools to more efficiently create and share their art. Some asked for crafting supplies like sculpting or sewing materials. The projects each artist put forward were varied and inspired, and it’s our pleasure to help bring these dreams to life.Dream Recipients!

A DeviantArt staff member individually replied via comment to each dream recipient on April 3rd or 4th to inform the respective deviants they were selected, and the reactions of the recipients alone made the campaign well worth undertaking! Some of our favorite reactions include this excited comment from @LadyYomiThis heartfelt reaction from @xMelonDrop This enthusiastic retelling from @NitaoART This sweet response from @ne-ONblue This eager reaction from @JollyMutt And even this reaction from @DreamyArtCosplay We also awarded an additional $2,000 in prizing to deserving deviants as part of the Devious Dreams livestream! Performer and voice actress Erika Ishii hosted the festivities, featuring voice actor Gary Anthony Williams doing readings of literature submitted to DeviantArt, clay sculpting games with @humblehills @ekud @HeartsUnchained and much more! If you didn’t get a chance to see the stream when it was happening live, have no fear! You can still watch the full video!Share Your Thoughts! This campaign has been a labor of love for everyone at DeviantArt, and we’re truly looking forward to seeing these artists achieve their creative evolution in the future. If you enjoyed this campaign and would like to see more events like these in the future, let us know in the comments!...
