dav5 aka dav5 web 2.0!



So, here is yet another sneak peek at where version 5 is heading! The future of deviantART is now! Taking a cue from the stylish and extremely marketable approach happening within the world of Web 2.0 design, we have come up with something entirely new! Thrown the baby out with the bathwater and said damn the consequences!





We realize this may be a pretty drastic change to some of you, but there is still some of the DA quality, it retains the green, and it retains the fun cutting edge style we have always had! Now with tons of added fun and that smooth clean bubbly look that put Bill Gates and company on the map! We are confident that by making this change we are bringing deviantART further into becoming more of an application as opposed to just a website. An application of massively enjoyable potential! Stay tuned for an open beta testing to all users, free, subscribed, and even if you are not logged in within the next week!

I prefer the grey scheme, like so many others. Unfortunately this is very bright, and has been commented a multitude of times, it will affect how peoples deviations show up against the brighter background.

To be honest, I find this 'new' style disgusting and I feel that it's a cave in to the 'marketable' approach.

We are DEVIANT-ART. To deviate is to stray from the norm. The above preview is NOT the norm.

The grey is what we all like because:
a) One doesn't find many sites that have this (greyish) style,
b) The grey is SO much easier on the eyes,
c) It's what we know and have come to love,
d) We have become accustomed to how our art is viewed here (some of us even took this into account when adding borders and tags to our images so they may be better viewed against a gray background), and
e) I'm sure there are plenty of other reasons

If this change is actually coming, I will be one among many who delete all my deviations and try to find a new site to submit my work to.

Since 'marketability' (i.e., $$$ MONEY $$$), seems to be the focus here and not ART as it SHOULD be, I would like to make it abuntantly clear that I am a subscriber, and I hope my comments ring true.

I'm thinking I don't like it :( It's just not deviant enough for me. It looks almost like a teen-zine layout and way too comercialized. Oh well I guess. I was hoping for a much more subtle and far more favorable change.

I think I prefer the current color theme. I find that the proposed change too distracting and some colors are very hard on the eyes...and some of those colored text panels are a bit difficult for me to read, too. Some people have problems seeing that color green. A fellow that I worked for wouldn't even see that green text other than a shadowy text. I know a few fellows that had varying degrees of red and green blindness. So black is definitely my choice for text. :D

I do like the feature of varying text sizes. Even now, I have to use the ''magnify'' feature of my machine to read some of the current text font sizes. Sometimes I would like to insert alternate fonts if that was possible. But that might be asking too much.

So, as the others before mentioned, it's about a month late for April Fools....:)

:( I enjoy DevArts current scheme..

~It seems a touch more serious, which really helps you to see the works instead of the site. The works support the site. :( Without them, this would be... Rather empty..

~Bright colors + Neon green text = Eye strain after a while.

~There doesn't appear to be a "194 new messages ( 186D, 6H, 2J )" note at the top, which I find to be one of the most usefull things on the site. :( It helps the artists here keep track of their watched artists and comments on their works. T'would be much more individualized and impersonal without it...


Then again, this whole thing could just be an April Fools joke. :) In any case, don't be hasty.

Find out what the users love most about the site and expound on it. Hell, maybe even add a thing or two that /in no way/ conflict with the things that they like. It should add to the site, not put a dent in it.
