SUGGESTION: deviousFeed by SanguineEpitaph SUGGESTION: deviousFeed by SanguineEpitaph
Edit: skjlghdgkhgjk Thank you so much for the DD! ;u; Thanks to Bart, the people who suggested it, and to everyone who comments and faves! I appreciate it! *u*



This is a suggestion that I thought of while I was trying to fall asleep. So today I used my limited internet time to use Google Chrome's HTML editor and Photoshop to whip up this quick visual suggestion. I watch a lot of deviants who keep Livestream journals (myself included), and I know a lot of people also make quick announcements using journals. Unfortunately, if you watch a ton of deviants, some of those messages may get lost rather quickly. With deviousFeed, which I'm suggesting, you'd be able to make quick announcements akin to tweets, but only for use on deviantART. Whereas tweets can come from all over and be shared, this deviousFeed would only be viewed by your watchers or people who happen to see them on your profile.

The idea is that it will separate quick things from journals or news. There would have to be a character limit, obviously. A lot of what you need to know about how it works is in the deviation above. What do you think?

I was also considering making a Google Chrome extension for this. The problem is that I don't know how. :shifty:

I'd love to hear your thoughts about this! :dummy:

Frequently Asked Questions

:bulletblue: Would this be a premium-only feature?
I know that I did include that in my suggestion, but I think free is better. ;) It would ultimately be up to the staff if they ever implemented something like this.


:bulletblue: Could you comment on feeds?
No.


:bulletblue: People will just spam it.
Well of course, people spam journals and polls too. But really, a character limit for "feeds" would need to be in place. Additionally, a posting flood limit would need to be in place, like with commenting if you post more than x comments in y time. It would need to be a lot stricter than that restriction, but you get the point. :nod:


:bulletblue: Yo bro, it's too much like Twitter or Facebook.
Yes it isn't. :iconcookiemonplz:
For one thing, you shouldn't hold back change -- dA is completely different from them. :noes: I don't have a Facebook or Twitter, so forgive me if I'm wrong: Statuses on Facebook are your main method of spreading things there. People share, like (:roll:), and comment on them, and so it becomes the most common method of communication on Facebook. Tweets are literally the only thing you can use on Twitter, and they can come from many places (like if you tweet an article or something). Tweets can be shared and stuff. My suggestion is just a supplement to communication here: it is one-way, from you TO your watchers. They can't comment or share your feeds because this system is literally only for making short announcements. This would not replace journals, polls, art, or community here.


Good Suggestions for my Suggestion
~AsjJohnson: [link] Make the "new feed" an option in the edit menu, and make it easier to post a new feed.

Many: Have the ability to unwatch Feeds.

Without sharing/re-tweeting, etc. It's just for announcing, not for networking.

I don't have glasses so I guess it would work like a shout box? Post it there and it goes to your watchers instead of just the box?

dA is NOT the type of site that needs this type of mechanic.

It's a mechanic suited for social networking, not artwork.
If we keep encouraging the social aspects of dA,
the art aspects will fall away.
The quality of the front page and DDs is already depleting,
this will make matters worse.

Hmm... might be a good idea. I know there's people I watch who do stuff like that in journals and polls. And, if we had that, I might say more on dA. As it is, I usually don't make a journal unless I think I have enough to say.

One thing, though... Do you have to click on Feed on that little menu to post one? You should be able to post a feed by clicking "edit" in the widget. "Edit" > "Post new Feed". I just think it would seem inconvenient to me to have to go through the navigation thing, because I hardly ever click on anything in that. Perhaps even have a little textbox either at the top or bottom of the message center, to make it even easier, although that might encourage people to abuse it.
Just my thoughts.

Smart idea! I never thought about having the "New Feed" integrated into the "Edit" button! I really like that idea, thanks! I'll credit you in the description and add it to the deviation when I get a chance. :aww:
