HIII!
As I have noticed through journals around on dA many are upset about the new update where people can see what you put into your collections.
They dont see your normal favs.

As well as this is great exposure for those artists that get their stuff faved, some people don´t want people to see their feitshes or the like!

HOW DO I DISABLE IT SO PEOPLE CAN´T SEE WHAT I FAV/COLLECT!?


Simply go you your Favs, then into your COLLECTION FOLDER

1. CLICK ON COLLECTION OPTIONS.
2. CLICK DISABLE WATCHING.  

And your done! Privacy is back! ♥♥♥♥
Hope it helps! :iconkissinguplz:

I figured it would give you the Option for Folder Privacy, but I wanted to be sure;

Thanks for Posting This!

It is just so people don´t see it on the "status" thing. So it does work.
But if they go to your page by themselves anyone can still see it.

This does not work. Even putting all your favorites in a collection folder, and setting the "disable watching" on the folder shows it even in public profile...Fuck deviantart

Keep in mind that you need to remove your favorites from your general favorite folder, outside of your collections.

Also keep in mind that if you don't have a thumbnail, it'll show your last collected picture as the thumbnail.

Also, everyone can still view the folder. So...

This doesn't work. It just prevents people from watching your collections, not viewing them.

I was under the impression that this option disables the ability for people to 'watch' (i.e. follow) your collections. That means the collections are still visible but they can't be watched (i.e. they can't have the images u add, appear on their msgs).

I didn't even know about this feature, but thank you! I'll be doing that post-haste.^ ^ 

Also, as someone who has been with dA through quite a quite make-overs, I'm okay with the new look. Sure, I removed my activity feed, but at least the feed doesn't show comments I leave on journals and deviations. That would have felt like a breach on my privacy to be honest. XD 

But the main-page activity feed, where I can scroll to see journal entries, deviations, and polls as they get posted, and I don't have to click in to comment, allows me to comment on the fly, making me more social actually. 

For some, I'm sorry about the changes, but for me, I'm just seeing this as a breath of fresh air. ^^ 

(I just helped someone find how to get to sta.sh through the search bar of their browser. Huh, I remember back when people got uppity about sta.sh, saying dA shouldn't act as photobucket. XDD)
