This is site news and bugs fixes page that was post on December 21st 2012.

Site Update



  • Change to Literature Preview Images

​Preview images for literature deviations are now placed within a scrolling literature thumb. In the past, any preview image a deviant set would take the place of the scrolling literature thumb, making it difficult to distinguish visual art thumbnails and literature thumbnails. 

This change allows for a more uniform thumbnail appearance around the site while also ensuring that each artist is still able to comfortably represent their work.

  •'s New Submit Page

​The Submit page has been updated for all deviants, to match the layout of the new Submit Art page. When submitting your work from, you can now submit your art, Prints, and Premium Content from one page.
