I want to say THANK YOU to ^bradleysays
for featuring this as a DD! Thank you SO MUCH!
Watch out, it's fullscreen size
Ok. This is just a few of my ideas for making the submission page better here on deviantArt. Negative and positive comments are welcome. Ha ha.
Thanks for checking out my ideas!

Tool Credit Submission Page
Streamlined Note Page
Collapsible Block Profile Page
List and Icon DragMenu Favorites
"Deviant Since # Age and Linked Accounts
UPDATED:: I changed the color of the little arrows next to the names of the sections. It was hard to see the white color. The three, large, non-essential sections (Tools, Resources and Groups, would be able to be minimized, and would be minimized by default. Users wishing to ignore these sections would be able to easily.
On top (Submission) window
- Ability to minimize some sections. (Tools, Resources, Groups)
- Addition : Once category is selected, the "Tools" section would become active under that category. (In this example, Digital)
-- There would be three columns. ( Frequently Used, All, and Custom)
-- Frequently used would show the selections YOU frequently use in THIS category. (Digital)
-- All would show a large list of selections popularly used under this category. (Digital)
-- Custom would be used if your desired selections are not available. Here you can construct a personal list of custom tools for all categories. ( This is not category specific because you may use some of these for more than one type)
Below the Tools Section would be Resources
-Here you can easily give credit to stock owners, textures, and models.
--The first part of this section would be "Resource Credit"
-- Here you could add a deviation by URL link, or thumbnail code, or you could click "Add from Collection".
--::Add from Collection would open a pop up window, much like when submitting directly to a group gallery, where you could browse your favorites and collections to select the resources if you had favorited them.
-The Custom section is for any source needing credit OUTSIDE deviantart (Such as google images, or another stock site) or deviants within the image. (Models or Collaborators)
In the second image
The deviation page. On the left hand side, with the other piece's information would list the tools used, and any resources or deviants that took part in the piece.
--Clicking a tool would open a search page of deviations made that also tagged that tool.
--Next to resources used, (this will be visible only to the artist, like the "edit" button) there will be check boxes, and above, a "Notify" button. When pressed, it would send a basic note to each of those deviants. It would say that you have used their stock, link to their stock, and then a thumbnail to your deviation. Once you have sent this notification to them, clicking that button again would prompt, "You have already notified these artists. Are you sure you wish to message them again?".
I know this is a lot, and would take a ton of time to actually make for the site, I just wanted to share my idea. It would be cool if even just one of these features were added.
Now for THIS deviation's actual credits. Lol...
