This is site bug fixes and updates page that was posted on November 15th, 2013.



We've just launched an addition to the Mentions feature that makes interaction easier than ever!

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, deviants who have already commented in the conversation, as well as deviants who have the exact username that you have already typed in, if applicable. This addition makes conversation more dynamic than ever, as communication becomes even easier.

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