Come on DA get your act together and stop trying to destroy the site by pandering to mobile apps.

As a group Admin, being able to move images from one gallery to another is essential.  Please re-enstate the edit feature, or you will kill the groups.

Also stop streamlining the system for Mobile devices.  being able to fave pics without opening the page will not encourage to comment on each others work.  So many site had done the same, and that is why I came back to DA.  please stop trying to kill the groups and community spirit of DA.  Da is a special unique site and should be proud of that fact.  We are not just another social media site like flickr or tumblr

"Also stop streamlining the system for Mobile devices." Yes! I sometimes browse DeviantArt on a mobile device, but I also activate the option "show desktop version of this site". If someone wants a mobile version, they can get the app, so why do they try to turn this whole site into a mobile-friendly website?
Also, your problem might be fixed by a little "edit page" button in the group gallery. If you click this button, you can move deviations the way it used to be :)

They need to bring back page numbers for the folders. I just tried to leave a comment on someone's gallery and I couldn't reach the bottom without it loading up more pictures immediately, and I had to give up. I don't usually comment about changes, but I can't imagine how anyone thought this was a good idea.

Panic over there is an option in settings to have page numbers instead of scrolling only! Phew! ;)

Well Just seen someone posting an image to twitter without giving credit to the artist and I thought I know this artist, some of her work is in my favourites folder, so off I go to find her work in my favourites. Then I  find the page numbers are now missing and I  have to scroll down through every bloody favourite!!! takes forever to load in and in the end I gave up after 15 mins of looking! Thanks yet again DA for making this site worse with each update, not to mention I cant stop someone on twitter taking false credit for a work they didn't do! DA fail....

Well said! We move contest art into other folders all the time. If someone submits to the wrong folder we now have to decline and have the artist resubmit. You're absolutely right on the fav option not encouraging comments too.:ARRRGH:

Thats why I returned to DA, as I was reciving many favs on sites like 500px but only one or two comments.  To me comments say so much more.
