deviantArt Note Page Suggestion by MamaELM deviantArt Note Page Suggestion by MamaELM

NOTE

The colors are OFF, nothing should ever be PURE WHITE, as it is very hard on the eyes!

This is intended for category: deviantART Related > deviantART Suggestions > Visual Suggestions

However that category does not allow .gif's. Drat.


Another lovely suggestion page for deviantArt! One part of the site that has bothered me for a long time, is the note page. It is SO messy, and it discourages long conversations! If you had a conversation that went back and forth 20 times, that would take up 3+ pages to sort through! Let alone the fact that you have to select them page by page if you want to delete a bunch. /end rant.
Now we get down to specifics.
It's a fancy .gif this time!


Features

Navigation
•Buttons that were in far left column would be moved to a thin clean bar at the top. Easy access like everything else on dA's main bars.
•The custom folder section would be confined in a drop-down-menu, because I am guessing only about 15% of deviants actually use them.
•"New Note" has been changed to "Compose Note" because it sounds much nicer, and the button has been moved, highlighted and streamlined.


List of Conversations/Notes
•The list of notes would be moved to the left wall.
•There would be one bar per conversation.
---(Seeing as the ENTIRE conversation stays in the updated one anyway, having duplicates is a waste of space, both visually and on dA's servers.)
•Individual conversations would move to the top of the list in order of last reply.
•Would show 'TimeSince' like it does, and also 'Date'
•At the top, there would be a simple checkbox and star (lined in blue there) that when clicked, would check/star ALL (or uncheck/unstar ALL) notes in that list below.
•There would be a scrollbar for these, no more clicking through tons of pages to find/organize.


Reply Window
•Reply box moved to top for easy access.
---(Why should we read the newest message at the top, then scroll all the way down to reply?)
•Widened and streamlined.


Actual Conversation
•I just have to first point out, that the old version, was a one color, completely text wall.
---With deviant's sections seperated by a primitive row of hyphens. Yes.
•So! We have here instead, a back and forth Conversation.
•You would see your own posts as a lighter color.
•Integrated new signature style.
•Streamlined Name credit and timestamps
•Icon increases ability to find specific posts by certain user. (Humans are incredibly visual creatures, we cannot dispute this. lol)
•See those two tiny, clean and simple buttons right above the most recent post?
Those change order :eyes:
Up would order them Oldest to Newest at top.
Down would order them Newest to Oldest at top.
(Perfect for finding links/information given very early in the conversation. Or just looking back, wondering how you strayed so far from the original topic. :loL:)

I make these with screenshots in Paint.net

So, :) If you like this idea, feel free to comment or fav, and check out my other deviantArt suggestions!
Thanks!

This is beautiful. I'd actually send notes more if it looked like this. Right now it's so.. ugly, and ugh. This almost reminds me of Facebook or AIM. :iconplusoneplz:

I love this! It would make it so much easier for notes. The layout now makes it really hard to have a long conversation ;; its like an infinity scroll to the bottom when I roleplay and I just dont like it.

:) This is only a suggestion, I'm not $taff, so I can't change it. But this was featured in a weekly update, asking people their opinions on it, so I think that in the near future the note page may get a nice update. :)

This looks like an absolutely fantastic Notes GUI. I use Notes all the time to commission artists and have over 7000 sent/received Notes in total. I can't search a damn one. I've been complaining about the lack of functionality for a long time.

I hope the DA Admins implement your Notes GUI! It's the best one I've seen yet and it would make anyone who uses Notes for correspondence very happy! =D

You're very welcome! And by the way, the world is better because of people like you. People dissatisfied with the status quo. You're the ones who invent, push change, evolve technology, and move the world. Many people just sit back and let the world do whatever. But some people, like you, say what we have right now isn't good enough and it can be better. Can you imagine a world where no one cared about improving the status quo? We'd still be at the dawn of mankind

Yes, absolutely! I'm always grateful for what I have, too. However, just because I'm grateful for what I have now, does in no way mean that I will hinder my own ambitions or personal progress. Achievement in life is never being completely satisfied with what you have now. This is how humanity advances. I see myself as someone who must constantly improve and gain something better, otherwise I'll stagnate and feel that I am not using the potential God gave me. =)

This is well thought out .

I use notes a lot . and I always had troubles when I need to fins a specific note or conversation .

I add that plug-in to help me search through notes ,but it made my computer very slow that I had to disable it and just search through hundreds of notes manually :faint:
