Connecting you with your watchers.


The Watch Feed creates a sequential stream of activity from your watchlist, including deviations, Journals, Collections, Status Updates, Polls, Forum threads and Critiques. Status Updates let people share quick updates about what they’re working on or what inspires them. Find an awesome deviation? Share it in your Status Update.

As we designed our upcoming Mobile app, we understood the need to build something streamlined and direct to deliver what you want to watch. The Watch Feed was built for smartphones and tablets. While we love the robust tools available in the Message Center — and they’re not going away — the Message Center is not an environment that works well on mobile.

Connect With Your Watchers in New Ways

The Watch Feed and Status Updates let you connect with your watchers in ways not previously possible. In the Watch Feed, deviants can easily interact and comment on artwork and content shared by your watchers.



"With Status Updates, I am closer to the people I watch, which I feel adds a deeper sense of appreciation for their artwork. It's nice to know who is behind such incredible work!" —CrypticGrin

Status Updates

The Watch Feed also includes Status Updates — a new way to easily communicate with your watchers.  Status Updates are a great way to share quick updates. Give the world an insider’s peek at a work-in-progress or let your fans know you’ll be livestreaming a drawing soon. Share the work of an artist who inspires you, talk about current events, or start up a conversation that could reach new audiences!


“I've been wanting an easier way to notify my watchers of things. This makes it easier with the Status Updates, instead of having to make an entire Poll or a Journal for a small issue or update.” —TheWickedBeast


Resharing Content

Using the “share” button, you can easily redistribute interesting content or Status Updates to your watchers. Using Status Updates and the “share” feature, trends, news, and art will spread through the community like never before.




Controlling Your Watch Feed

If an item is removed from your Message Center, it will also be removed from your Watch Feed. You can customize what appears in your Watch Feed by editing your Manage Friends settings for specific deviants.  (These settings apply to both the Watch Feed and the Message Center.)


If you choose to unwatch a deviant's content (for example, Journals), existing Journals will remain in your Watch Feed; however, future Journals will not appear.

Introducing the Watch Feed and Status Updates
As DeviantArt grows, we strive to find more ways to connect you with the things and people that matter to you most. After months of designing, testing, and engaging in community conversations around the shape of things to come, we’re proud to announce a series of features that will bring you closer to the community.

My Postit Notes by Dr-Koesters
Discover more of your favorite topics.


Tags create landing pages around topics — making it easier to discover related artwork, bringing together artists and art appreciators, and forming communities around common interests. As DeviantArt grows and creates new ways to discover great content, we believe tags will play an important role in better surfacing artwork.

Tag Deviations, Collections, and Status Updates

You now have the ability to tag your deviations and Collections. Tags added to your deviations will be publicly viewable — this is a change from the previous use of keywords, which were private. Visitors can learn about your work by viewing how you tagged it, and can find more works by you and other deviants based on tags. Tags can also be used in comments, Status Updates, Journals, and Collections.


Tagging your deviations and Collections will improve their visibility across the DeviantArt network. Tags are the glue for surfacing and creating context around different types of content. Tagging is a crucial part of discoverability and will help your work find the audience that will appreciate it most! The goal of tags is to help you find art and topics that resonate with you, real-time community activity, and new ways to participate in the community.


“Tags will make it much easier to categorise and find deviations!” —Baka-Inu-Ninja


Tags Pages

Tag pages display artwork, Journals, Collections, Status Updates, and a stream of activity around a shared theme. You can also find a list of deviants who are frequently using that tag, to connect with other people who share your interests.



Tags Transitioned From Keywords Must be Approved

Important: Keywords added to existing deviations before tags launched will not display publicly unless you approve them using our new Tag Editor, which can also be used to add and edit tags on your existing deviations in bulk.

Editing Tags with the Tag Editor

Using the tag editor, you can add, edit, and approve tags on your deviations in bulk. The Tag Editor allows you to manage tags, up to 20 deviations at a time — making it a more seamless process for you to tag your content. The Tag Editor can be accessed next to the “tags” field while editing any existing deviation.



Start Tagging

Get started now! Read our tagging guide and use the Tag Editor to approve tags on your deviations.


Share your thoughts on the new tags feature by posting a Status Update using #Tags.

For her outstanding work with deviantART, Heidi is presented with the illustrious Bolt Award for 2008. Heidi is the embodiment of community spirit, dedication, and drive that makes deviantART what it is today. Her positive attitude and inspiring personality has been an influence on the formation of the site since the very beginning, and without her, deviantART would be a much duller and less magical place.

When I was updating a deviation, i couldn't find the "add watermark" option. What's up with that?

Hi there! When on the Submit page, once you've uploaded an image file, there should be a bar beneath the Mature Content settings that says "Display options". If you change that to a size other than the original size, the option to add a watermark will appear. I hope that helps! :)

Dear Deviantart Admins/Founders who works on the site updates,

Please take the time out of your hands to read the few negative comments and use those negative comments to improve on the site. If a bunch of people are having a problem with the submissions then can you please take the time to fix those. If you block other sites because you call it spam then please inform everyone why you called another art website as spam....yes I am talking about the major spam block called "our  art  corner (dot)com" I didn't noticed this until my best friend was trying to show me her username at this account and how the art site is acting a bit more mature with people's art than here. But when I click on the link she gave me, you guys thought it would be funny to say "This site is restricted. Deviantart admins don't allow you to have access to this page." and sadly it doesn't make sense to me. So instead I had to type in the site into the html box in order to head over there and see what was all the big deal about. 

To be honest the site seems like a wonderful site. You get only a certain amount of points to spend and you have each comment worth a few points. This means that you literally have to use the comment section as an advice section or a critique section. And in order to gain more points you have to rate the images based on its quality (oh and you can purchase the art from this site). 

Really to me and seeing two good sites being placed back to back (a) takes itself seriously as an art website or (b) post up a few images on this site to make your portfolio for others to see and watch the site pretty quickly turn into a Facebook wanabe. If I had to choose I would pick site (a) because yea Facebook wasn't too bad but when you see other sites trying to copy the FB status then it kind of looks like a sign for desperation. Oh and the idea of not asking your members if they want to switch to the newer look or not is just plain rude. 

By ignoring the concerning issues that are sent to you guys week after week and seeing other sites actually looking at your site and fixing their own site to make it more user-friendly is the main reason why over time your site is going to be slowly disappearing into the dark quiet corner of the internet where the unnoticeable sites go. So if you really want to improve your site then stop with these crappy changes that makes you look like FB and take the time out of your guys paid life to go and fix the problems that can (unchecked) cause your members and site viewers to leave due to system crash or intense amount of unfriendliness towards everyone.

Thanks for reading,

I mentioned some changes and really wonder how this crap could be the result of people who are on DA at itself - These changes are just ideas from marketing-only minds. But i´m not here to offer my personal behavior or just consume, if i would, i wouldn´t be on DA. I would be on Twitter, Facebook or all this other social bullshit stuff. 
Now i feel relegated to an unwanted part here, to the art-creaters. The new navigation is hell for working with it, but well, maybe it´s quite nice for mobile device users, but this people didn´t create art, they just consume with fickle attention. And if DA troll out all artists, the consumers wouldn´t feel much loyality for DA without art. 

So please, review why this changes had been made, and what kind of people decided it, and for what reason.
Btw.: For the guys with the money: Not even the value worth of DA will rise through more short-time members, cause every one who would invest money would also check the reasons for such a spontaneously appreciation. And this is a perfect example for a economy bubble. Inflated market value at the cost of the worth of tomorrow.
Another point are the new everyone-can-see-what-everyone-does settings. Facebooks history tell us how good this Stasi-like behavior of sites work. Unfortunally the Facebook-guys allready made ther money with it, now it´s too late to make money with the same fuck about. If you want to sacrifice peoples trust for money, you have to be quick, and than run fast like all the other locusts.
At the moment its close to an legally question if you can activate ads concerning to personal informations without even ask of inform the users, that´s close to data-theft(Hey, DA´s lawyers may say this is a controversial statement, but the people who hit the "leave" button surly would have another perspective). Even these ads and settings are made by mistake(then just axe the programmers) they are insultingly stupid. Most of the creating and community-strengthening people are paying members, so they got rights, and place value on quid pro quo.
The actuall things happend in real-world politics as well as on the web show that people are more fearsome than ever before to get disregarded ther self-determination, and angry, if you treat them like DA actually does. If someone behind the site missed to see this - send ´em back to buisness school, but please, don´t sacrifice DaviantArt.

One question:

Why there are always new ads and widget and stuff updates that noone wants? Take a look at your journal, noone wants this. So why are you and the staff are doing this?

Many people here hate things like facebook. So why do you want to create a second facebook here?

I understand that there are people who want this, but why don't you think of the other people, too and make a fast navigation menu to disable stuff like that? And why does it start enabled allthough I don't wanted it? Really, it feels like you think we are your own property when we logg in and those ads are activated without beeing asked.

Yes, you will get more facebook useser with that. But most of them will not create art or something and some artists will leave. In one or two years when art isn't the focus here anymore, the people will think: What I am doing here? I have a facebook account so I don't need an account here.

I made the experience that people of marketing jobs are thinking about things right now and don't think about the future. There was a research study in Germany where people where asked: what do you want? 20 € now or 40 € next week and most of the asked students took the 20 € now. 

So what do you want? 20€ now or 40€ later?

I agree with that whole comment. It is good to have a chat with My friends once in a while, but this is mainly about art. Or at least it was. 20€ now or 40€ later? I think 40€ later. There is always more future ahead of me than the past behind me. The present day will never last. The future will alwas lie ahead. This website may as well be called devaintBOOK.

It feels good not to be alone with that thoughts. I cannot understand why people like heidi only reply to good comments and ignore the rest allthogh the rest ist the greater amount.

I hope they will change it back and try to keep their members with the possibility of disabling things we don't want. I really can understand that other people want that, but why do I have to buy a smartphone to use DA properly?? I cannot create art on a smartphone -.-
