Site Update: Outgoing Link Page RemovalSite Update: Outgoing Link Page Removal by wreckling
In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.
Removal of the Outgoing Page
Update, October 24: We've removed the "Now Leaving deviantART.com" page that previously displayed when clicking a link that navigated to an external site. Outgoing links will still be signified with an outgoing symbol, and, to ensure a safe and enjoyable Internet experience, we encourage you to always be aware of the URL for any link you're clicking.
Official FFM Prompt Bank 2014:iconflash-fic-month:Official FFM Prompt Bank 2014 by Flash-Fic-Month
This promptmobile has been parked up rusting for a whole year. It needs an oil change, a lick of paint and some air in the tyres. We're presently sourcing some fluffy dice for the mirror and a nice novelty airfreshener.
Most importantly, though, the tank is dry as a bone.
Time to siphon us off some promptjuice. Fuel us up with your best original prompts for people to dip into during the month when they need creative jump leads.
As always, the chosen few will be chosen, featured and credited in our daily updates.
Protip: We can always use visual prompts, musical prompts, prompts in the form of interpretive dance and other variegated promptitudinousness as well as the usual prompts made of words.
VIVA LA FFM!
NaNoWriMo Resources Write or DieNaNoWriMo Resources by thorns
There are tons of activities for National Novel Writing Month but the most important is that pesky writing thing. To help with that you can use an online application like Write or Die to do some solo speed writing. You set the time and/or word count you'd like to reach and then select your consequence settings. During the time you must continually type or you will receive a negative consequence.
Write or Die really does put the prod in productivity with multiple consequence settings and a timer.
Track your progress! This will help you see how far you've come and how much you still need to accomplish. It's a great way to procrastinate too! There are loads of fancy and simple ones on the internet if you run a quick Google search.
I found this one on deviantART: NaNoWriMo 20
Don't Panic: It's NaNoWriMo!“Perhaps I'm old and tired, but I always think that the chances of finding out what really is going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say hang the sense of it and just keep yourself occupied.” ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the GalaxyDon't Panic: It's NaNoWriMo! by Naktarra
Don't panic, it's a stressful time for a lot of writers, but that's why we write. NaNoWriMo is easily one of the more terrifying events which wants you to do a lot of writing. Some people choose to write an entire novel and some people choose to do otherwise. The fun thing about this event is a lot of people are doing it and a lot of people are just as scared of going in blind as you are. This is the month were your strengths, your quirks, and your mild attention span will be tested with the name of the game: National November Writing Month.
Introducing the New NavigationIntroducing the New Navigation by wreckling
Explore the full range of DeviantArt.
With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What’s Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look. The addition of infinite scroll on Daily Deviations allows you to quickly discover even more hand-selected deviations. This all adds up to more control over what you use most and makes it easier to discover great artists and their art.
The More menu, which was previously available next to the DeviantArt logo, has been better organized and moved to a more prominent and convenient location. This change was based on community feedback that its previous placement was hard to find, and its contents overwhelming.

Ouroboros snippybitIn the moment after being struck on the back of the head with a metal baseball bat and before the resulting explosion of colored sparks before his vision, Jackson knew he was going to have a bad day. He recalled later that his last words before losing consciousnesses were, "It's too early for this."
He heard gunshots, aware of his surroundings even though his body wouldn't allow him to move or see or do anything besides lay on the ground in what could have been mistaken for a drunken stupor. Reflex and determination and the innate ability to know that something important was happening were the only things keeping him from going under entirely. The magic steroids coursing through his bloodstream helped.
Of course, magic steroids wasn't the actual term for what it was that had kept him alive for this long. Demon blood and wishes and a thousand other things he didn't understand prevented him from dying of a concussion or internal hemorrhaging or having his ribs jabbing holes in his lungs.
If I were a Pencil A pencil — the perfect writing and drawing tool
Sharp, dull, long, short, thick, thin, wooden, mechanical
It comes with assistants and helpers
Erasers, sharpeners, boxes of lead, pencil cases
If I were a pencil, I would love it whenever my owner
Picks me up and writes with me
Because I know my owner needs me
To write and draw and spin and doodle
I would love the way it feels when gripped in a hand
Sweaty, dry, big, small, rough, smooth
And the way I brush against Paper
White, yellow, lined, blank, new, old, thick, thin
I would love it when I’m
