Ability to remove, or separate promotes, follows and comments from feed

When your feed is spammed with your various activity, any actual status updates and artwork submissions will get lost.

There should be either the ability to remove/disable these activity notifications from your feed, or separate them from actual status updates and submissions, for example via having a tab for each, with status updates and submissions being the tab displayed by default.

Favs and follows on someone you watch can be useful for discovering more art, but they are inferior in importance to status updates and submissions.


At this point, we're working to improve the activity feed. One of the biggest things we'll be doing is consolidating promoted art; that way, you don't have the same thing appear over and over. We'll also have those appear larger and enable users to fave/promote from the activity feed.

We've found that not too many people currently use the status update function. Because of this, there's little to no benefit to disabling that unless it becomes a problem in the future. For now, we're going to pass on this suggestion, but we'd take it into a consideration if it did become a problem.
