Site Update
This is site bug fixes and updates page that was posted on June 21st, 2013.


GeneralEdit Writer has been integrated into comments for Beta Testers! Writer allows rich text editing of literature and journal deviations on deviantART, and we are excited to expand this functionality to more areas of the site.

The new "Add Media" button allows rich text editing and multiple other features to be employed on these comments. Not only does it improve on functionality that already exists in comments, it also pulls in the full power of the Writer application into your comments, revolutionizing creative communication.

  • Email Verification for Account Security

Account security is something we take very seriously. In order to improve and ensure account security on deviantART, we've introduced a new notification in order to verify that your email address is still up to date. 

Occasionally, you may receive a notice asking if your registered email is still up-to-date. If we can verify that your email is still usable, then you can confirm this with one click. Otherwise, you will be prompted to update your email address from the page you are on. This is a safe and secure way to ensure that your account information is valid, should we need to contact you for any reason, or vice versa.
