deviantART notepad suggestion by nk-chan deviantART notepad suggestion by nk-chan
Okay so every now and then people will make forum posts: [link] suggesting dA make a version of this private notebook feature that some sites have been implementing lately and everyone's always like "THAT'S A LAME IDEA BITCH" so I thought maybe this would help, because I don't think it's a lame idea at all.

(And yeah, it's just a rough example and I'm not saying it has to look like this, and I don't know how it would work if you didn't have it on your top bar, but you get the idea. And there's some space on the right side for.. I don't even know what. Maybe something, but maybe nothing, because it's a super simple feature. Maybe bold and italic buttons could go there.)



Reasons it would be cool:

*It's better than using MSword because you can get to it from anywhere.

*It's better than using Google Docs or something similar because you won't have to remember to check your notes and then go sift through a bunch of documents to find one tiny but important thing you wrote to yourself 2 weeks ago.

*It's better than writing a list on your hand because a shower won't be able to screw up your plans.

*It's better than sticky notes because those things just don't stick when you need them to. D:

*If you're on dA all the time, maybe even a great deal more than any other site, like I KNOW a lot of people are, you'll see it every day.

*It's right there. All the time.

*It would (ideally) automatically save (or have a simple save button) and automatically be editable, all the time, like a piece of paper is. :B
No messing with anything.

*You don't have to have it on your top bar if you don't want to use the feature. You can just forget it exists if you want to, because it's not intrusive.

*As ~dire-musaera mentioned, it would come in very handy for an account used by multiple people!

deviantART notepad suggestion by ~nk-chan
I know that if I don't write things down, I'll forget. This would be super helpful to all those who are just that. Forgetful.

They should install that immediately! I would use it CONSTANTLY as I am always on here and always forgetting what contests I enter or what commissions need doing. Or small things like what I could write about in my next deviation.

I say notepad all the way!

This is not lame idea at all, it's great. Because, I tried with MS Word, sticky notes, writing on my hand an more - less everything you said in your comment. I even tried to bookmark deviations I wanted to comment, but had no time at that moment. It turned out to be awful idea.

As has been said, this would be perfect for commenting on art, making it possible to type in thoughts while actually looking at it, instead of having to scroll down. Also, I lose my lists all the time, so it would be nice to have one that can't fall on the floor.

Its kinda a browser extension on desktop program thing. Like notepad.exe XD Ok I know what is the idea behind this, I see the point. But it would be better if the browser has this function.

This could be very helpful to artist who log on and forget what they have to do first. Especially with so many great things going on in dA at once.
And natural scatter brains can always appreciate more spaces to add reminders to themselves.
This idea definitely deserves serious consideration from HQ.

I think this feature.. for marketing purposes.
Make it so that non-sub members can have up to like 25 notes. And sub members get 50.
A page system so to speak that you can flip through with simple arrow buttons underneath the text box.
Having bold, italicize, and underline, while still being able to utilize ctrl-a/x/c/v for the appropriate functions.

I think this is a wonderful idea. We should start a petition to get dA to add it! :D

Instead of notes, I think it would be more appropriate to call it dAmemo.

and at the top where it says "Notes to self:" it could be "Memo to myself:"

also, a feature to show that you have memo's.. by maybe having it just gray when it's not used and coloured when it is.
hmmm.

I think this is a really good idea. When I see works that I like and find inspiring, I want to critique or comment, but usually I don't know how to say it quick enough, so I just fave and think I'll come back to it later. Except I don't. There's all these other bright and shiny things to distract me. With the notes I could jot down initial impressions and then come back later and make an proper critique. May brain just doesn't work at internet speed, no matter how much I believe.

YES. I approve. How could anyone think this is a lame idea? It's nothing but helpful. You don't have to use it but it's there if you need it (and I think everyone will find themselves needing it at least once or twice, including the people who think it's a "lame" idea).

If you have an idea for a journal entry but don't have enough time to write it, jot down a few notes and write it when you can . . .
