aka "The Things I'll Keep Posting On Every Single Site Update Until They Pay Attention"

Because getting a suggestion noticed by dA staff is like winning the lottery.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Edit (1/17/13): Reformatted! Finally!
-----------------------------------------------------------
Look! A folder of nifty user-generated tools!

Here I keep track of:
- my acknowledged suggestions
- my unacknowledged suggestions

-----------------------------------------------------------

Acknowledged Suggestions:
  • Limiting Group join request to one at a time per Group, so that Group admins don't have to deal with duplicate requests. Suggested by *Yoriden150 (9/6/12)
  • Some deviants would like to be able to go directly to their Profile from Sta.sh. Suggested by =Autumnstarr (12/6/12)


-----------------------------------------------------------

Suggestions
  • Galleries
    :bulletorange: Page Navigation in Scraps and Browse- add the numbered buttons at the bottom so we can more easily locate the last page: gyazo.com/db3fc4b8df5f2676854f…

    :bulletorange: Deviation in Storage- either keep the placeholders with the artwork's title still on it (so we know what it was), store them without placeholders (particularly in favourites and group galleries), or automatically remove stored deviations from groups and favourites.

    :bulletorange: Total Comments- are misrepresentative of interest; count number of original comments (which are actually most likely commenting on the piece) and then maybe count the number of total comments (which are probably unrelated conversation).

    :bulletorange: Favourites- add subfolders.

    :bulletorange: More Like This- being on the side of our deviations distracts viewers away from our works; make it a drop-down or 'click to show' feature, rather than a permanent distracting cluster of thumbnails on our pages.
  • Profiles
    :bulletyellow: Sticky Journal- grant users the ability to sticky a journal on their profiles, same as can be done in groups.

    :bulletyellow: Poll Creators Shouldn't Have to Vote- the creator of a poll should be able to see the results without having to click an option themselves.

    :bulletyellow: Poll Preview- just a preview button to see what it will look like before submitting it; we can do it on journals, so why not here?
  • Groups
    :bulletred: Submit to Group- enable customization of the 'Submit to Group' form located on deviation pages; the power to add, remove, and arrange groups on the list (especially remove).

    :bulletred: Find All by Member- a means of locating all artwork by an individual artist in the group gallery (and a means of removing them for group staff).

    :bulletred: Polls Are Member-Exclusive- provide an option to make polls only available to group members, so that non-group members cannot vote in them, enforcing more accurate and less biased results.
  • Submit Page
    :bulletgreen: Layout Color- it would be preferable if the submit page were of uniform color with the rest of deviantART, instead of resembling the accessory website Sta.sh. In particular, the background color behind the image preview should be anything but white for the sake of confirming transparency pre-submission.

I'm not sure why it doesn't save the keywords for you. It seems to be an issue several people are having but it works fine for me. :hmm:

Oh it saves them, it's a matter of cookies that we have a problem with. The old system, when you started to type, it would have a drop-down with information previously entered into the field. The new submit page doesn't support that.
