Deviantart is switching the whole side to HTTPS, starting today. Therefore it may affect your journal skins, gallery skins and most probably custom widgets whose images are not saved on a secure site.

While some deviants embraced the changes, it's fair to say that others have felt surprise, curiosity, and maybe even shock. These feelings are totally normal, but for the large part, there's a hope present. A positive outlook. The first steps in a new era that makes the way for our goals in the future, and, at the same time, removes clutter and confusion that new deviants often experience.
As with any change, there are a handful of deviants that don't understand why we made the choices we did &
