is there a way to change some kinda setting so that you automatically watch someone's scraps when you add them to your watch list?


... if not, could you maybe work on something like that instead of wasting your time tweaking the deviants list so that it takes ages to load for pretty much the same function it had before? it sure would be useful, and save me a few seconds to wait+click+click instead of COSTING MORE SECONDS. i could be using those seconds to browse pixiv some more yknow!

edit
jesus i know how to watch scraps i've been on this site for like five years, i'm wondering if there's a way to set it so that i don't have to do that extra step

i am very lazy!!!



btw did you know they make mentos gum now... it tastes pretty good but damn the flavor lasts like five seconds

  • Reading: the bro code

Just check the scraps box when it redirects you to the deviant watch page and then click save after you're done.

My question is, what is with the weird flash type box they're all set in, I see less of the names than I did before in the simple list set-up...I liked the basic set up, not having it fancy yet infuriating..

I actually like that it doesn't happen automatically. I don't really like to watch people's scraps unless I've actually gone looking for them when browsing their gallery before I watch them. :)

I just hit the select all box

though it does get kind of annoying when you watch someone who has to upload EVERY SINGLE STEP of their art to scraps.

they should do something like mangabullet. they're so much more efficient when watching people. It's like a little pop up.

I was thinking the same thing! :P

What I prefer as default is scraps box checked instead of friends box.
I mean, most of the people I watch are not my friends. LOL;
And scraps are still arts.
I wouldn't want to miss any of it! *A*

you do have the option. when you add someone to your watchlist, you just find their name on the list and go to the far right column in that little table. check that box. that's watching their scraps.

I don't think they do, but maybe if you get enough of the bigger artists like you asking about it, they might finally catch on.

you know how there's that "friends" button at the top of the toolbar (on the same line as logout & username)
well there's an option at the bottom "add or remove friends"
that list, has an option for "scraps".
check the box.

done.

I really wish they'd just redo that whole devwatch thing.. again... because it still freezes up my computer when I watch someone, and I just bought a new computer. :I :I :I

Ah, I love mentos... that's funny! The flavour of the gum lasts the same amount of time as a regular mento before you end up chewing and swallowing it haha

But watching people's INSIGNIFICANT WORKS IN PROGRESS wouldn't be the true deviant lifestyle, right? Only the finished product matters, right??

Am I the only one who gets excited when artists post a ton of scraps...

aww instant coffee sucks it doesnt matter how well you make it (that's what i learned last year : ( ) theres some decent kinds tho if you can find 'em

i, however, am cheating the rules and got a coffee machine even though walsh has a three minute burn time and i'll likely be responsible lol

I dunno. The only think I do is click the little square when you add them. Or does dA do that anymore? It's changed so much I don't remember.
I think I've had mentos gum before. I put like, 6 in at once.
