Watch List by LostKitten Watch List by LostKitten
[edit Feb 18, 2010 1:10AM]
A DD? You guys rock. :heart: Thank you so much. :aww:
It's my first time, so be gentle. :flirty:
[/edit]

[edit Feb 9, 2010 1:30AM]updated visualization to reflect the # in front of each listed Group. The groups listed here may or may not be converted into an official group, this was made before Groups went Beta. :D Thanks to `BoffinbraiN for calling me out on my laziness. ;p[/edit]

Apparently change inspires me.. I've never submitted so many things in such a short time-span. I resized this to 900px so it hopefully won't be blurry like previous submissions..

Suggestion Break Down
At the top of this you'll see the actual drop down menu for groups. Currently you'll see your group beside your name. I think having this little tab will help keep better track of the groups and not take over the top bar. Some deviants are involved with a lot of groups. So listing them across the top bar would get pretty extensive for some...

The second section shows the group tab when it isn't dropped down. Matches the Friends and Collection tabs, so it goes wonderfully with dA's layout.

Beside the search tab you'll see the :+devwatch: guy and the words Watch List. I'm proposing this in place of the current Friends tab/section. Having a Watch List will help us organize deviants and groups in one place. Ideally this would transfer over to our message center too. So we can enjoy our groups submissions without them taking over the works of the artists we watch.

I'm also suggesting that in place of Deviant Groups we use categories. This way we can have Deviant and Group categories for organization purposes. It would be awesome if our categories could be incorporated into our message center at some point too, but I'm not proposing that one just yet. :D Baby steps.

The bottom section is what everyone else would see when they visit our front page. Comparable to what's available in the groups now. I also added the edit function to show a capability to customize how the different listings are arranged and customize each section.

I think I covered everything. I did try to make it pretty self-explanatory in the submission itself, but if you have questions, ask. :D

Any Thoughts?

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-02-16
Watch List by =LostKitten is a well thought out visual suggestion to help incorporate groups into the watch list and page module. ( Suggested by Mr-Heli and Featured by GaioumonBatou )
:iconboffinbrain:
This is one of the best suggestions I've seen in a long time. I hope someone picks this suggestion up and works on it.

I especially like the way friends, groups, watchers and visitors are all merged to reduce clutter and make them easier to find, as they are all clearly related.

I definitely think there should be proper separation of groups and deviants now that the system has been established, so having a separate button for them is great for easy navigation.

One slight tiny critique I have about the groups box under the watch list page is that you have included 'clubs' in that list as well, but as we all know, these are indistinguishable from regular accounts, so this would not be practical. Maybe it was just an oversight!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
168 out of 172 deviants thought this was fair.

OMGOSH perfect idea!!! It's so frustrating trying to move deviants and groups and stuff around in the FRIENDS list and have it all in order. Baaaah!!! I hope they do this. :)

Based on dA's current setup with visitors being listed only by PMs I figured the Watch Box would be custom to PMs too (for the front page), but hopefully the organizational advantages of this would be made available to the entire community--no need to limit organization to the paying users (imo). Ultimately, it'll be dA's choice what to do with it if it's used, though.

Omg this is exactly what I had in mind when I saw the friend's list thing, seeing as how groups were within the friends/watch list, I wanted to try and list the groups as "groups" but saw that I could not, in fact you even did this better than what I had in mind (which was just keeping groups separate from friends/people you/groups you were watching, if that makes sense..since I understand a group can appear in the watch list if you're watching them)

Amazing! I'd love to see this soon.

I mostly like it. I think it would be good to be able to either have all watch items together as you show or to keep what I'm watching separate from what's watching me.

:iconlostkitten:
LostKitten Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2012  Hobbyist
What you're watching is in your message center and what's watching you is on your frontpage--via "watched" list. I may be misunderstanding you, but what you're watching and what's watching you is separated.
