I'm back! It was a super long week, and looks like you guys didn't hold any punches while I was away. I have my work cut out for me. I'd still appreciate your patience while I play catch up from my time away. Went through a pretty drastic change in my personal life and it's hitting me a bit hard but I should be able to bounce back with the support you lovely folks provide. <3

So… remember those big personal changes? Well they're starting! There is a long way to go before things are completely settled but the first few major steps are underway. In that regard I will be away from the Help Desk for a week. July 11th - 15th.

While I'm away the good folks from the CEA team will be looking in on General Help and Bugs for me to manage any fires that may break out. If you notice things are taking a little longer than normal please bear with us.

I really appreciate your patience during this time.

I'll be back in…

Hey there, I'm still having problems with 10% of the thumbnails refusing to load when using dA when both using the browser and the app. I submitted the same inquiry like five times and you told me that the dA team is looking into it, nothing is done and it's starting to get more frustrating to browse with the thumbnails not loading properly. It's not just my browser that has this issue, even the mobile app suffers the same glitch and even deloads a few images. Is your support team aware of this bug?

It's just dA is starting to get frustrating to use with this annoying thumbnail bug floating round.  

I also wrote a journal about it if you're intertested to read about my experience with this issue:
Possible hiatus due to dA's buggy messFirst 10% thumbnails refuse to load, then their mobile app auto logs me out, then notes refuse to open on the desktop site on my mobile, difi errors when I'm inputing tags for my picutres and now shortened links to pictures lead to a blank page. DeviantART used to be a fun site to make friends and upload stuff.
It's not fun to use anymore because the site is completely FULL of bugs and glitches and it stresses me out and frustrates all the damn time!! And I even happen to report these bugs I been experiencing and they think it's something to do with my browsers and my broadband. But it's not. Even using a different browser such as IE and Firefox has this same issue and not to mention DeviantART's own app (image even deloads btw) and it's just a mess overall. The website even goes down frequently almost every month.
I really love this site but it's real shame that it's really badly handled. I don't want to go on hiatus because of that. This is the thing, they never fix anything that's b

If I am assisting you through the help desk please be sure to reply directly to your ticket or email to continue the discussion. I'm afraid I won't be able to discuss this through comments on my personal profile page. :)

hi chris, I sent in another inquiry thinking the managers at that group were gone and right after I sent it, a manager got back to me so please ignore the second inquiry as I'm working things out with that manager :)

Hey there Ikue!
My friend recently made a new DeviantArt account, but she hasn't gotten a verification email. She HAS checked the junk mail, but still nothing seems to come from DeviantArt- but the email saying that the ticket she submitted was sent. When she got a reply it had seemed they hadn't read her email at all about how she explained she checked the spam and it wasn't there.
