Visual suggestion: Enhanced deviantID Interests by jonarific Visual suggestion: Enhanced deviantID Interests by jonarific
Check out the forum thread for this »

I love that the deviantID profile widget has an "Interests" feature, which allows you to display a bunch of information about yourself in a collapsible segment at the bottom of your deviantID. Technically, this is a great feature because it gives you the opportunity to present some key facts about you in a concise and structured manner, rather than having to place them somewhere in your regular "About me" text where they can easily be overlooked.

However, the problem is that those pre-defined, unfortunately non-modifiable interests are not really what I (and supposedly also many of you) want to put there, and writing all of your additional points into the "Other interests" field isn't a very satisfying solution. Wouldn't it be great if each of the points were freely customizable, so you could entirely decide for yourself what to display in the "Interests" section?

In my opinion, most certainly yes, which is why I've created this visual mockup to display how that could be implemented! It's actually really simple: In the editor of the "Interests" section, each interest field is accompanied by a Remove button, which can be used to delete that field if it's not needed. On top of that, an additional line is added to the very bottom, which gives you the possibility to add custom interest points. Just type in the heading/title of the interest that should be added, hit the Add button and voilą, a new input field with the desired title will appear. How a customized "Interests" section would look like is displayed at the bottom of the preview image.

That's it already! Please let me know what you think of this idea! 8-)



Oh my goodness, a DD?! :squee:

Totally didn't see that coming, especially not for this rather simple submission! Well anyway, thanks so much to ^thelasth0pe for featuring it!! :hug:

Ah, so that's why I can't change the fields at all...I'm kind of new here, at least as a registered member, and I was hoping I just hadn't found the setting somehow...-.-

Predefined, random questions you can't exchange at all is honestly rather restricting. I know this idea has been around for a while, but I still hope it's at least considered for the future!

I love it, it's such a great idea! That's exactly what we need considering the fact that dA is supposed to be for creative people.
I'd also like the possibility of adding the list as a separate custom box if someone with pm wants to have their page arranged in a different way: I wanted to add background to my custom boxes but then it covers the "interests" section and I'd like to have both the section and the background.
Anyway, if there was a poll or something I'd totally be for it and do whatever it takes to help with it :)

You're welcome! How do you make fake screenshots? I've seen others do it before...

jonarific Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012   Interface Designer
Well, I guess this example isn't really a "fake screenshot" in that sense. I used the Firefox plugin Firebug to make real-time modifications to the code of the normal dA Interests section in my browser, and then simply screenshotted the result. I could've also created this entirely in Photoshop (supposedly the way most of these mockups are created), but it would've taken considerably longer. ;)

Whoa I really liked the idea! :love: And which is funny, I went to edit my ID a couple of days ago and I thought, why we haven't more to put in our information (There was so much I wanted to tell :XD:) Seeing this made my day! And it became a DD! Lots of people will see, and If it catches an admins' eye, why wouldn't it become true? :giggle: It's a super nice idea and I really think it should be taken into consideration =D omg you even added a 'create interest' button! How not to like it! :love:
Anyways I shut up now :XD: The idea is super and many deviants supports it! Cheers for the Daily Deviation, sooo well deserved! :dance:
