Welcome to the next installment of A Week in dA Related!
A Week in dA Related is a weekly news article series that aims to bring you the most important and fun deviantART and dA Related news from the previous week. It also includes a handful of features from the gallery that were submitted in the last 7 days.
If you have any deviantART Related news you'd like to share, shoot a note to ^ladygagz.
From the Writer
Hope you're all well. After the success of the chat event I held earlier this month, I decided it should become a monthly thing. Each monthly dA Related chat event will be held on the first Friday of each month. The first Friday of June happens to be on the 1st. Here's the details regarding the chat event this week.
On another note, the deviantWEAR gallery is now called "T-shirts, Gear & Prints". As a reminder the gallery is available for you to sport your prints, devGEAR and T-shirts.
Just a reminder that until a new dA Related Community Volunteer is selected, you should send your dA Related DD Suggestions to $namenotrequired.

Skins and Scripts
dA Suggestions - Groups + Gallery SkinsThese are some things that annoy me again and again. I am not sure if there have been already suggestions for this, if yes: sorry.
And to avoid spamming you with single visual suggestion i thought a combined written suggestion might be a better way this time - especially as i am too lazy to make visual suggestions for all of them
I might update this from time to time - in case i think of something new or one of the things suggested have been added.
Let me know what you think of this.
Group Comment Notification
To be able to see if someone left comments on a blog or poll in a group you always need to get back to that certain feature. While you remember doing so during the first time, i find it annoying that you don't get any notifications if said things have been published a while ago and people still leave comments or ask for help/feedback.
That's why it would be nice if such comments would appear in the message center at the groups se
Message about installed journal skinThere should be a message in Activity about the event when somebody installs one of our journal skins. Same design like at faving, collecting and badge giving.
