Eats Bugs For Breakfast

Nested Stacks in Sta.sh

Wed Nov 20, 2013, 2:31 PM
Please note: Due to the technical nature of this particular feature, this launch cannot be switched on or off. Deviants with Beta Testing enabled at the time of this article's posting will have the feature enabled and will not be able to change back, while deviants who were not Beta Testers at the time of this article's launch will not be able to opt-in. 

Organizing your Sta.sh has been made easier than ever! You can now create stacks within stacks in your Sta.sh, giving you even more creative control over your projects!

When in a stack in your Sta.sh, you can now merge several files to create a sub-stack inside of that stack. You can group subtasks of larger art projects together, arrange your files by type, or organize your files in whatever way that makes sense to you!

You can also put certain files of a project in a sub-stack, so that you can share certain files with other deviants without having to share the full project. This makes sharing works-in-progress a smooth and simple process that won't compromise your work flow.


Try it out!


Nested stacks have just been launched to Beta Testers, so give it a try by visiting your Sta.sh! Any feedback you have can be left in the comments on this article, and if you encounter any bugs or other issues, please file a ticket about them in the devBUG Issue Tracker, under the Nested Stacks project.


Autocomplete for Mentions

Thu Nov 7, 2013, 4:55 PM
We've just launched an addition to the Mentions feature that makes it easier than ever to interact with your friends!

When using @ to Mention a deviant or Group, a list will now appear in a menu while you type that includes deviants and Groups you +Watch, as well as deviants who have already commented in the conversation. This addition makes conversation more dynamic than ever, as communication becomes even easier.

Note that this feature is only available on places where the "Add Media" button is available (comments, deviation descriptions, Journals, etc.).

Try it out!


This addition has been launched to Beta Testers, so feel free to try it out by using @ to Mention deviants you +Watch! We'd appreciate any and all feedback you have. Feedback can be left in the comments on this document, and if you encounter any bugs or other issues, please file them in the devBUG Issue Tracker, under the Autocomplete project.


As part of our initiative to make formatting and conversation easier and more dynamic, you can now use the Add Media tool to add content and formatting to deviation descriptions, Sta.sh item descriptions, and Sta.sh stack descriptions.

This makes it easier than ever to add formatting to your artist's description, and it also makes it easier than ever for Premium Members to include images in descriptions!




Try it out!


You can test it on the Submit page, on a Sta.sh item, or on a Sta.sh stack. Any feedback you may have can be left on this article. If you encounter any bugs or other issues, please file them in the devBUG Issue Tracker, under the Description Writer project.


Deviant and Art Mentions

Mon Aug 26, 2013, 11:54 AM
Update: In response to feedback received from the community, we have made some changes, which are detailed in the "New" section of this article.

A new feature has been launched that's designed to make interacting with others even easier than before! Deviant & Art Mentions are a highly requested feature that send notifications to your Message Center when someone mentions you or your work in a public location on site. 

How It Works


When another deviant uses the :dev: or :icon: codes to mention you, or includes one of your deviations in a comment or Journal, a message will appear in the new Mentions section of the Message Center letting you know, and linking you to the location. 

These messages are designed to help engagement between deviants, as well as to help further conversation on deviantART, making it easier than before to talk with others, draw more people into the conversation, and bring groups of interested, engaged deviants together over common ground.


New:

  • You will now receive notifications when mentioned in the Forums.
  • If a deviant includes your username and a deviation of yours in the same comment or Journal, you will only receive one notification for it.
  • You can choose to ignore notifications for specific deviations of yours, if you find that you do not want to be notified when deviants are using deviations of yours as part of their comments:



Try it out!


Deviant mentions have just been released to Beta Testers! You can try them out by commenting on a public place and mentioning another Beta Tester using the :devusername: code, or by including a work from their Gallery in a comment or Journal!

If you do not want to receive mentions, you can turn mention notifications on or off from the General section of yourSettings page.

Any feedback you have can be left on this article. If you encounter any bugs or other issues, please file them in the #devBUG Issue Tracker, under the Mentions project.


Two new features to make viewing and organizing your Sta.sh even easier have been launched to Beta Testers!

Targeted Dropping


When you upload a file to your Sta.sh by dragging and dropping it, you can now easily put your file in a specific place in your Sta.sh! This combines the process of uploading and organizing, making it easier than before to organize and maintain your projects, even when adding new files!

Infinite Scrolling


Infinite scrolling has been added to your Sta.sh! When browsing your Sta.sh or inside of stacks, you can now scroll and view all of your files on one page, rather than relying on pagination to find your files. 

Try it out!


You can try out these new features by visiting your Sta.sh! Any feedback you have can be left on this article. If you encounter any bugs or other issues, please file them in the #devBUG Issue Tracker, under the Sta.sh Improvements project.
