There is no one to blame but me for our long hiatus. There were a few glitches in the rotation with the new volunteers and then things just piled on top and I ended up procrastinating too long. I'm sorry. I really do hope that we'll be able to stay on top of this with weekly or once every two weeks postings. As always, please forgive me for being late!

Due to the sheer volume of links involved, it is inevitable that I accidentally deleted some that might have otherwise been included. I did intentionally delete some contest links for contests that have already closed.



Beta Testing

All Beta Testing bugs should be reported to devBUG
through their "Report a Beta Bug" tab. If a feature has gone site-wide
and you find a bug, submit the bug report to the help desk. Groups are not a Beta feature.

  • There has been some Prints integration on deviation pages, which has since been released site-wide

  • You can now edit any Group Journal in writer, which is now site-wide

  • There is a new Submit Art page which is being A/B tested, not all beta testers will have this feature

  • There have been some literature improvements and an added emoticon sidebar in, which have since been released site wide

  • There is an ongoing Thumbnail sizing test going on, which has since been updated, this is in A/B testing so not all beta testers will have access to this feature, this is only active in specific browsers, if you experience bugs with this (and only this beta feature), report them to the help desk.
