  • New Username Symbols

With 13,000 new deviants joining deviantART each day, we want to ensure everyone's user experience is seamless. A common question from new and old deviants alike is: "What do username symbols mean?" Over the years, as we’ve surveyed deviants, we’ve found that very few understand symbols.

As part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.

  • Deviant and Art Mentions: Connecting People

Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that notifies you when you are mentioned or featured by other deviants! In addition, you can now link to deviants by using the @ symbol!

When browsing by Artists while viewing More Like This results, you will now see a cleaner layout that places more focus on the art, making it easier than ever for you to get lost in a world of art and artists that interest you.

  • Updated Internal and External Links

Links on deviantART have been updated to be clearer! Links to other deviantART pages can now be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART. This distinction is to clarify when a link leads outside of deviantART, helping to ensure that your experience on deviantART is a safe and pleasant one.
