*** UPDATE: As of April 30, 2014 the older URLs appear to have been fixed by the dA developers. Please check your URLs to be sure yours are working once again, if not you may want to submit a ticket with the Help Desk. ***
It has recently come to my attention that the URL to my stock rules which is on all 2,013 of my deviations, no longer points to the stock rules journal. For some unknown reason, deviantART staff has changed the method of identifying our individual journals. Instead of our older URLs pointing to a specific journal, they lead you to your journal homepage.
I am not the only person affected by this change. I scoured my extensive watch list and looking at every stocker I personally watch and many of them have the exact same thing happening.
The following stockers may want to update their rules on their deviations:
I am sure there are many, many more, so please, if you come across a stocker whose rule URL leads you to their journal homepage, please let them know!! You may send them this journal for explanation.
A Quick Fix Until You Can Update Your Deviations
If you are a stocker who has had your URL changed, add a new journal with your rules so that it is the very first journal in your journal homepage.
Not All Are Affected
It seems that if you posted the thumb code to your journal in your Artist Description then you were spared this major inconvenience.
