Track Your Projects Through Stash by Katara-Alchemist Track Your Projects Through Stash by Katara-Alchemist
EDIT, June 1st 2012: I added a couple things based on feedback I'd gotten. I added a way to mark things as mature content, in case you're working on a mature content piece. I also added progress bars so that you can track your projects without stretching out your page with a ton of thumbs if you so choose. What do you guys think?

So some of you may have seen my "Current Projects Progress" widget on my profile page. (If not, go to my page and scroll down a little, it's on the left side.) I'm very fond of the widget, but it's a pain to set up due to having to embed each deviation from stash since we can't use thumbs from stash, and then there's the coding for all the boxes and titles and yada yada yada. So I decided to make a mockup of a real version of this widget, where everything is already set up and all you have to do is set up a few easy options.

With this you would be able to easily create and track different projects through stashed deviations. The widget would be accessible by both premium and regular members, but premium members would be able to have up to four projects shown while regular members could only have up to two.

I think this is something that a lot of people would find very useful. Many people already clutter their galleries with progress shots of their different projects, this widget would get rid of some of that gallery clutter while still allowing the artist to showcase what they're working on and how far along those projects are.

So, what do you guys think? Would you use it? Why? Why not? Is there something you think could make it better? Even if you hate it, tell me!

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-07-14
Track Your Projects Through Stash by =Katara-Alchemist is a fantastic suggestion of a feature that would utilize Sta.sh in a different way.

I really like this concept it would be really useful for story writers and groups. Everything would be in one spot and still divided by posts. The only thing I'm unsure of is whether or not you could still click an image to get a better view or not and how it would affect the page. Other than that there might be an awful lot of scrolling but that's it. I think it would be a great way to show progression of a character/s over the years especially for groups. I was wondering if you could link posts that have already been uploaded to each other though or if you have to re-upload them?

:iconmod-a-holic:
This is a great idea! You made me think like:"Why didn't i think of this?" Which is a good thing, but, there are some negative sides to this concept.

Let me share my vision with you on this.

:bulletred:Concept

The concept is great, both visually and text wise. I think anyone can understand what this is about etc. well done, plus, it looks really professionally done, like its always been here on dA, 5:star:'s for technique miss.

:bulletred:Idea

The idea is simple, yet thought trough. Showcasing your current WIPs trough widgets, it cant get more simple than that, right? :) Again, well done, but i must say i don't agree with the fact non-premium members should have this feature. Or, lets even it out, because 4 of these massive blocks will greatly increase the size of one's deviant-art page, plus it will (in my case) make me not scroll all the way down to "comment, thank, etc." I'd reduce the amount of W.I.P. blocks to 2, 1 for non-premium members, 2 for premium members.

Now we have another problem. Bluntly said, porn. I didn't see you include a Mature Content Filter, because some people on this site and with some i mean many ^^; like to draw ... suggestive pictures. And other photographers like to post nudes as well, if they post a nude on the widget or someone posts yoai/yuri whatever its called, people and i mean children can see it. It would be a bit funky to not have a M.C.F. on this ;p Just pointing that out.

:bulletred:Finalization

Like i described earlier, the idea and concept is great, outstanding, well done. But, there are some flaws to it. Try and polish it up with my critique in mind, so we can strive to get an even better concept or final product that enhances both the site and the users using it in a convenient way :) I hope you can agree with me on some points/ratings.

I would really love to see this implemented. I've just started using Sta.sh to handle all of my Local > Remote posting of artwork, and I'd really like an easier way to keep people updated and handle my status updates. ^_^

Might be interesting. If it were available, I'd probably try using it and see if I like it.
Right now, I'm using sta.sh stacks to show people progress for certain things, but it's kind of different than doing this. I've also had a percent type of progress thing, without images, in the past in a custom widget to show my progress for different things, but that's also kind of different. And it's a little hard to tell what percentage done I am on something, time-wise.
Perhaps if those progress bars of yours had, like, hover-over alt text that you can customize, it would be intersting. Like, if there was an alt text option below where you can select which bar you're on, where, if you're going to use the one-red-bar one, you could type "sketched" as an alt message, so that people would better know what your own personal levels mean. Or a person could consider a lvl 1 bar as "thinking about" or something else.

This would be so helpful.
It would be nice if we could do something like that on th front page. We can do something similar with a regular custom box, but it would be nice to have it formatted already.

It would still be nice if it was already an option though.

Well, it has gotten a lot of attention! It's been mentioned by the staff in a site update (once to talk about, and once in the next update to say that everyone loved it!), and now it's gotten a DD. So the staff are at least aware of the idea and they know that people would really like to see it.
