New Explore

Explore Polyvore

We've updated the Explore Polyvore page by adding a new two-column layout and some extra features! You'll now see even more popular sets and groups in the main column, as well as more Contests, Polyvore Announcements, and Recent Faces on the right. Check it out now and let us know what you think.

I think it looks awful & isn't as easy to navigate!

Why did you change it? It looks terrible :/ It looks dull :)

it's much better. It still needs tweaking here and there, but it's going to be great. Just takes some getting used to, is all :)

Why did you remove recent sets? i should be there .. the rest is nice!

emily said...

Not good at all. Cluttered, smooshed, and confusing. The old Explore page was much better.

I really don't like it. The one plus of it is that it's easier to tell what contests are going on. But I hate that the recent sets are gone and I also think it's harder to navigate. Plus, we really don't need to see all those groups.

I really dislike it.
It's all mashed togeather and it's hard to tell where one section ends and another starts.
I really prefer how it was, it was much easier to navigate and much less complicated.

i don't like it because it does not have recent sets. now only friends will see my sets instead of getting the opportunity to make new friends and see new ideas.

Well I think it has good points and bad points, but what in life doesn't? To the positive side, you can see more of the popular sets, groups, and contests that are happening. On the negative side, you no longer can see the recent sets. Personally I loved seeing the new sets people created, that's how I have met some great people here, seeing the newest thing they have created. Also it takes a bit to adjust to, the new layout, kind of confusing at first. I love the changes to Polyvore, and it's ever evolving for the better I might add, but I would love dearly to see the "recent sets" back on there. I feel people making new sets or their first sets are being cheated in that aspect. Thank you for allowing the oppertunity to voice that! Adorable_Abby=)

Congratulations you've just ruined Polyvore. Now how are people going to see new sets? The popular ones will just keep getting popular. Not to mention it looks mashed and hard to navigate.

Emily said...

Its not THAT bad, guys. I do think its more organized, but I hope you bring back the "recent sets" area.

Oh Snap It's ME! said...

dayuummm. Whoever "anonymous" is really trying to drive their point home. I think we get it already: you don't like it.

Like I said on the Polyvore Forums, I quite like it, it is a little busy but it's definitely much better than just squares going across the page. Maybe you could make creative "tabs" (like in the style of "file folders") at the top so the links are cleaner and easier to find.

it look decent, but i thought it was fine the way it was. it was much easy to navigate. i also think that the most recent sets category should still be there.

Thanks everyone for your comments! We'll be taking your feedback into consideration as we continue to improve this page over the next few days. Stay tuned...

why doesnt the polyvore clipper accept flash websites...?
Im really gutted because topshop has recently turned their dress section of the website into flash, and now i cant clip them! :-(

I hate it! We were already being repeatedly bashed over the head with the same "popular" sets and now there's even less visual variety on the explore page for browsing purposes. In my opinion, the recent sets were the best feature of the explore page. And having the most recent contest submissions at the top was also contributing to the variety of the page. Right now it's just phenomenally boring and repetitive, too much space is devoted to groups, and it's almost (but not quite) enough to turn me off of polyvore.

Michelle said...

Yay! Thank you for returning the recent sets!

Bea said...

It's too cluttered and is trying to accomplish too much. I don't think you need so many popular ones. you may just feature fewer of each category to reduce the clutter.
looking forward to your improvements!

I really appreciate the return of the recent sets. This is how I have discovered some amazing sets created by less-popular polyvorians than those that are constantly up in the popular sets section.

Josly said...

You are right, what was I thinking.

Soulk!d said...

I can't say I'm too fond of it either...the old one was just fine.

Jessie said...

I think it's really good! Probably because i only joined a while ago, and haven't seen how it used to be. But i like how u can b the first to comment on [some good some bad] recently added sets. I don't know y everyone thinks it's that bad. I mean if u hate it that much you can just not click on it. ^_^
