AND SUDDENLY SOME PARTS OF THE DA LAYOUT CHANGED and also i just wanted an excuse to change the journal skin lol good timing DA

I actually don't mind some of the changes, for example it's nice that the Today link finally became something more of use again. Not sure how i feel about infinite scroll on the DDs though i have slow internet |D

Other things would be better if they had more options set to them - like...I'd like to be able to change my watch feed so it only shows status updates (don't really see a point in essentially having two message centers, and if i disable things from the Manage Friends list it will disable it in both locations. As much as it would be nice to not see devs and journals in WF i rather like seeing them in my message center lol, so guess that tab ain't being used). I'd also like to be able to change what gets shown in the new Activity widget because i don't think you guys need to know i just made a journal when the journal is right underneath it, that sorta thing :P Hopefully they'll tweak some stuff for better capabilities, i'm sure the beta testers must've said something to them at some point.

For those of you dying from the recent update here are some tips which might help!

Centering the top nav (un/splintered menu)

If you're intensely disliking the menu bar of all your messages and stuff being placed all the way to the right (like me. I'm just lazy when it comes to screen real estate, but woe betide you if you have a massive widescreen with that right alignment XD), and would like them centered again, here is a useful little script:

deviantNAV v7 by rotane

It requires downloading the Stylish extension for your browser (or using the browser user script version), but it's pretty worth it if you liked the former aesthetic for the nav.

Activity widget on by default

In case you weren't aware the Activity widget has been placed on your profile page by default so if you don't want it there here's a heads up that you have to manually remove it.

Disable collection watching

If you DON'T want people to be able to watch your collections (like...i dunno you have a hentai soft core porn folder you don't really want all your watchers knowing about etc), you can disable people from being able to see what and when you've added to them.
  1. Go to your Favourites and open up your collection folders
  2. In the right hand corner click the button "Collection Options"
  3. Tick the checkbox for "Disable watching" (at the bottom) and save changes

Will add more if i notice anything else of interest ~

In other news i made a game for Halloween and if you are the first person to beat my high score i may give you something. Maybe a tumblr doodle or a one month premium membership or something. Depends on what i can afford lol.

ALSO I'm going to try and do something this week. Apparently we're getting hit by a hurricane? (how does a hurricane sneak up on you) So I'll have little to do and hopefully that means I'll  get some art done haha. I've been dying to draw the CA for weeks.

ALSO ALSO I'm trying to figure out how to get the pictures off of my 2DS to show you the Animal Crossing house but technology

Yo, Darqx ! I hope you're doing well; I need an advice: I really would like to create little animations but I have no idea which software I should use, and I have zero money to spend on that. I know I'm being bitchy pricky, but could you help me please ?
Darqx Featured By Owner May 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey Eli! If you want to start off with small animations and you have Photoshop 7 (and above), they have the capability to create simple animated gifs bundled in them (Photoshop 7 has a standalone program with it called ImageReady, whilst Photoshop CS2 and up have an animation timeline built it). You can get Photoshop CS2 technically for free here as Adobe seems to have released it as something similar to freeware. GIMP also has this capability if you are using that. You can find a lot of tutorials on DA for how to make things like animated avatars with these programs.

If you want to take the plunge and do animations with sound and stuff then you might want to consider something like Flash CS3 and up (CS6 is the latest at the moment) or ToonBoom Studio which i've heard is pretty good as well. These programs cost quite a bit of money however. Instead you can try something like Vectorian Giotto which is apparently very similar to Flash but free!

Hope that helps :)
