*When you're trying to comment on a post and you wanted to include a picture it would be easier if a little thing came up saying upload picture- where you can just select a photo and your're done like when you comment on some of the snippets articles.
*On the messages section it should highlight which messages haven't been looked at or have one of those envelopes next to it.
* You need to get a new photo uploader which takes all images
*There should be a dislikes section on the interests part of your profile
*You should be able to bookmark projects and they are then saved to a section on your profile so you can look at them at a later stage
Tom updated the messages last night so that it puts a little blue dot next to unread messages. Is it still saying you have unread messages when you don't? As for bookmarking, we've been working on a new feature where you can 'favorite' a project and it'll appear, either on your profile, or on your projects page. If all goes well we'll have that up tonight. The other thing we added is that is shows projects you've made on your profile - so go check that one out. We'll get working on your other suggestions now too
awww, thanks! You got working straight away- u guys rock!
The message thing is now gone and the blue dot thing worked-yay!
I'm guessing the bookmarking thing hasn't worked yet as nothing about is coming up on the projects- don't worry though- no rush! lol
I checked the projects thing on my profile and it's so awesome- thanku heaps and heaps!!!
That's favorites up now, we still need to add a little box that shows if a projects a favorite on the projects themselves, but it works great for bookmarking!
We've also got a much better category system in, so it's easier to browse.
Next up we're working on a system so that you can add projects that don't have steps, so you can show off the things you've made even if you don't have a tutorial for it.
Anyway, keep yer suggestions coming!
ooh I love the favorites! I think I may have to favor everything!! lol
I have a project that has no steps, coz I did it ages and ages ago! Would love to pop that up
Awesome, well that's what we'll work on next. I'm always making clothes without tutorials, or variations on projects that I've already posted the tutorial for, so it should be really handy.
I love your site! It's growing so much, and getting better by the day! However, I do have a few suggestions:
First of all, the site needs a "wanted" section. There should be either a place to post (forums or elsewhere) "wanted" items. i.e. There's a couple of crafts that I want to try out, and maybe someone out there knows how to do them. If there were a place I could post a request for a tutorial, that would be awesome!
Second, is there a search feature for the site? If so, I'm not finding it. If not, there should be one!
Third, there should be a resources section! It would be really helpful to have a place that people can list resources like where to buy certain craft supplies, their favorite suppliers, links to craft websites and other things.
Anyway, just some thoughts! Keep up the good work! Thanks much! *HUGS*
Thanks for the suggestions. We're actually working on a search at the moment and we're also making something called the 'Craftopedia', which will be an encyclopedia of craft,s where you guys can contribute info such as 'where to buy products', 'tips related to that product' and techniques for doing certain kinds of crafts.
Your wanted section is a really good idea, we're just discussing whether to make it a forum or integrate it some other way at the moment, so I'll get back to you soon on that one!
Search is done on projects - Perhaps not the best search, but it'll check through all the text of the project for the search term...
Top right on all the project pages!
+ I'd like a way to separate crafts and recipes
- either Favorites folders that we can choose what goes into which folders
- or projects + recipes so that posters can choose which to post under with separated folders
+ Also, I love some of the sites/extra tidbits on your blog, but I'd like a way to add blog entries to favorites
Awesome, Cat, thanks!
Hey Emily, I've added them to the list. We're at our families homes for the holidays, but when we get back to our own flat, we'll get straight to work on them - thanks for the ideas!
I have a suggestion for the board (forums): I'd like to be able to have a "quote" and "multi-quote" function.
More suggestions will come soon. I'll make a list. ;D
Awesome, I'll add it to the wishlist thread!
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
