DeviantArt will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Monday, July 27th from approximately 10:00 PM to 11:59 PM Pacific.

During this time, DeviantArt.com and the DeviantArt Mobile App will be in read-only mode — you'll be unable to submit, comment, or +fav deviations (or take other actions that require being logged-in.) However, you'll still be able to browse and search the site, and we encourage you to find and share artwork that you enjoy, bringing attention to artists you love!

This scheduled maintenance will allow us to test changes to our backend systems to make DeviantArt faster and more reliable. Rest assured that none of your data will be affected or lost during this time.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to providing you with an even better DeviantArt experience!

Update: DeviantArt's scheduled maintenance is now complete. Thank you for your patience and please commence DeviantArting!

I was going to buy a new subscription, but then the prices got jacked up WAY too much. Gee thanks.
Having the extra widgets isn't worth $50, and that's the main thing I liked having a sub for.

I would like a suggestion, all non-English alphabets in the links are not working when I typed it in the comments, notes, etc. Can you fix this problem??

I hope this is the right place to leave a feature suggestion.

Been looking for a place like this, I think I went to the site's developer page on another site or something before. Anyway I would like to request on my, and the behalf of all other interested parties, that you all add a batch process feature to the submission menu.

Ideally this feature would allow us to use the features already in the menu to affect multiple deviations, one's already in our gallery or being submitted. I believe it should look/act somewhat like a photo editing program, where we can select the feature or features we wish to apply and scroll through thumbnails of our gallery/desktop checking which deviations or deviant folder we want to be affected.

A good interface example IMO is the photo editor Digital Photo Professional.

I don't know what's going on but it keeps getting harder and harder to use DeviantArt!
I've uploaded a picture today but all it shows is the "broken image" symbol - but if you press "download", the picture ist there!
Also, when I click one of the buttons on the top of the page (like "today", "forum", "journals" and so on) NOTHING HAPPENS!

I tried to contact the help desk - but all i get is a "500 internal server error"!

 It's obvious to me now that there must have been a huge exodus of paying members because the yearly membership fee is now $50 instead of $29.99 (which was <gs id="e7367146-2330-480d-9731-28acc9217bdc" ginger_software_uiphraseguid="4dd83086-a898-4162-9749-417f38e425aa" class="GINGER_SOFTWARE_mark">ad</gs> enough as it was) with no new features or benefits. A prime example of a company not listening to their customers and creating an utter mess with their product, then proceed to lose money when their customer base abandons them and then passes the losses off to what customers do stay by raising the price of said product.

Where did this bright orange star come from? The removal of the normal symbols was already a hit...

I'm not sure I like the new icons next to our names. They're almost too loud and distracting. Is there a reason that orange was picked instead of a duller color?

Then again, I'm slightly biased against the color orange. I'm not a big fan

Have you tried another browsers? Another connection to internet? which program you save your images?

Is likely to be a deviantart issue, but you need to discard all possibilities.

Don't know, Firefox/Chrome/Opera should be ok. Check that you really saved as .jpg are not as .psd with a .jpg extension.

you can upload to sta.sh? I could check if there is something wrong in the jpg or is your browser/da account. We can communicate through notes if you want.

I know this isn't really a solution, but maybe save all your art in a .png format. You might be able to upload .png files.

Aww, that sucks. Since .jpg formats are the most "common", .png formats may take a little while longer. As long as it works, though. :)

Ah! :-) Orange complements base watered-down green color of the site very, very nicely, so aesthetically that's a very sure move. I also understand it that DA team wants a lot to stimulate users to spend more money here -- these "core" catch-words, extremely popping orange color (vs. nothing at all for non-paying user) really separates premium members from the rest.

Mmm ok, I dislike both changes. I can't afford 50$ for a count in a internet site and the colours are horrible. In fact they test a "Beta" too, but I think someone though it was really horrible and they dropped for now.

Well, I totally respect your opinion, no arguing (these colours are not for everyone for sure), but can't get you on "testing a <<Beta>>" point. Can you reformulate that? Sorry for poor understanding :(

:iconjakeukalane:
Jakeukalane Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No problem. You have near you name the tag "CORE". Few weeks ago (I don't know if 2 or 3), they briefly implemented a tag like the CORE tag. As I am Beta Tester, I had BETA near my username. However that test was fineshed in the day (maybe it was a way to test those tag for CORE users...in the end beta testers are for that).  I think that someone realized how horrible "BETA" after a name sounds (seems like we are incomplete users) and they dropped in the final implement of "core" users

I've been having some problems with submitting JPEG pictures. When normally there is the mini-sized version of the picture showing while still submitting, I've noticed that it sometimes does not come up to be seen. Sometimes it jumps between showing a blank and outlines and nothing while writing the description. At the best in this troublesome case it shows the picture's file name. It'll get seen if put to sta.sh and submitted, but it's very dubious. Sometimes it shows the picture normally though.

And especially when submitting from Sta.sh the description is a bit messed up.

Noticed this. What the heck happened during that maintenance? O_o'
