For some reason I've been able to give out two llamas to the same person in a row. :paranoid: :lol:

Hi, not reporting a bug, just suggesting something new. I'm a user who often favs a lot of art in one big hit, multiple times a day, and I was wondering if someone could place a small yellow star to the top of a thumbnail to show that you've already faved this piece. 

Say, I were to fav a piece from bloodkingowl, and a month later, I go through his gallery (and sometimes I forget if I've faved a piece and I go to fav it cause it something I liked), but then I see the little fav star icon and then it indicates that I've already faved, so it saves me a bit of time 

(and I could check by clicking the image and seeing if it was in my favourites, but this is mainly for fast browsing)

Is this suggestion able to go through?

There's a bug in the watch list display that emerged within the past month.  I've tried filing a help desk ticket, but the response I received was dismissive and did not take this issue seriously, so I'll post the bug here in the hopes a developer will see it.

When clicking the "Next" button on the watch list, the 500th page is continuously displayed, regardless of which page you are on past 500.  With groups that approach 100,000 watchers, this prevents access to half of the watchers in the group.  Here are some example screen shots:

There has been no announcement about a "500 page limit".  This feature has worked correctly for the past decade.  I really cannot fathom why this limit would suddenly be arbitrarily imposed, so this appears to be a mistake.  The "Next" button does not work as it should, so this is a bug with the site.

If someone could look into this, I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.

Hey guys, wondering why my script electricjonny.deviantart.com/a… is breaking now.

Not a bug report, just wondering why calls to the MessageCenter DiFi are now breaking.

Thanks :)

(I can, and will, investigate further, but any help on your side would be kind)

I just peeked at the history and the message center DiFi hasn't been touched in a while. Must have been some other change indirectly affecting it. Without knowing your script better the best I can suggest is comparing to actual MC queries on the site.

Oh, forgive me.  It seems that my script now works.  Not sure why the "hickup", but all is functioning normally now.

Hmm, yeah I had seen this error in Firefox 30 (alpha), but had thought it was internal.  Seems there is "some other" problem here now.  I wonder what it is.  My guess is a change in the GM API.
