I'm really tired of only being able to submit one jpg in to a deviation. My art is often an adventure and the art is in the adventure.  :5moremins: by Synfull

deviantART doesn't allow me to publish that. Sticky Note by BoffinbraiN

That's an easy thing to fix, technically. It just has big implications. But I think we should just do it and see what happens.  Shit hits the fan REVAMPED by Tryer1234


It would mean that you could publish things made in Stash Writer as deviations. Which breaks the promise that when you click a deviation, all that results is a deviation. It could be an entire publication, like techgnotic's articles.

We're pussy footing around this change within the company, and today while attempting to publish my art work for the fifth time lately I've just effing had it. I haven't posted to deviantART since the summer because of this. 

And my current gallery? It's a sham compared to the work I've been doing the past few years with my art. I just have a hard time publishing it here. It's time for change. and Writer are close to being clean, strong, independent products. is huge already, set to be a top 500 web property by itself by early next year. If you get wind of what's being released on it next week or the following you'll begin to see it's over-9000 ultra mega power. I already have access to the magic and it's changed the way I look at my creative and publishing process.

So, strap yourself in for a troll rampage until we get this squared away but I'm ready for galleries to contain truly rich media deviations.

Hm. Sounds interesting my friend... one thing that's always bothered me though is people without a subscription get effin nothing compared to those who do. Some of us cannot afford a subscription etc.
What can be done about that?

Ooh, so that is your long-term goal. So until we get there to that capability of blowing people away even more than we already are, we have to deal with *ahemclunky* user interface problems. I remember some "feedback" thing for the "new submit page", sponsored by Stash. The link is here: [link] (And please take note of all the comments down beneath the article.) Apparently, we're not going back to the old way, despite popular opinion.

Just going to the "Submit Art" thing at the top, I don't see the grand vision you have in store...not yet, anyway. That means, unfortunately, I don't see your "over-9000 ultra mega power", but instead a major disadvantage and discouragement (or is that part of your high-friction scheme of filtering quality?).

But my question is, just from flipping through Daily Deviations alone (never mind all the others that can compete with them), how is it possible that things aren't rich enough already?!

Reminds me of Pixiv's stack options and Behance's system to show the project. Would be interesting to see what you are releasing to form an opinion.

This instantly reminded me of Behance and the way they allow you to upload and show multiple images on one long scroll so you can show every aspect of a project instead one piece at a time or bunched into one giant image like we've had to do here up until this point. I'm glad we're going at least somewhere towards that direction.

I know right

Now that I've seen the example, I stand by the idea that it should be a third category taking into consideration the 'series' aspect. While you could do something like this in a a gallery folder, you lose the ability to view all images at once along with the text. But at the same time, I like knowing that what I'm getting is a single piece of art or a journal about someone's experiences and those are not the same thing.

Collecting art is an art. :thumbsup:
Maybe have 'mini portfolio sets' become deviations? I mean for the portfolio system you display certain collections of art to desired employers... it could simply be the case for deviants.

will all our data still be in though? I've got plenty of stories that I really worked hard on.
