New Profile Pages!

Did you know that millions of people come to Polyvore every month to find style inspiration from your sets? Today we're pleased to announce a change to Polyvore's profile pages that makes it easier for your fans to follow your taste.

The new profile page format is more blog-like, with chronologically ordered entries, bigger images, and full set descriptions. Every set you create is like a blog post. People can like your sets directly from your profile page and even subscribe to your profile via RSS. We also show posts for collections you create, items you clip each day, and your favorites for that day. If you want to customize what post types appear on your profile, you can do so via the profile settings page. If you want to quickly browse through a gallery of someone's sets or favorites or groups or contacts, just use the links on the right side of the profile page.



Think of yourself as the Anna Wintour of your very own personal fashion magazine! So go ahead and inspire the world with your gorgeous creations!

Personaly i dont like the new profile pages i think theyre more complicated that more, and i dont like the way they display you sets. following links are sets about it.

sorry, but i hate it. i got OFF blogger to come to Polyvore and i really would rather not have poly turn into a blog. it's confusing and unorganized. why can't we have our profile page look like that as an OPTION?

MissWaldorf1922 said...

I hate the new profiles! Can we get a choice if we want the new ones or the old ones?

haleyy said...

I think it's really cool, kinda unnecessary though. I liked the other way better, it was easier to get around and know where everything is. But this way looks really neat and I guess I'll get used to getting around with it

haleyy said...

oh & I think in your profile description you should be able to space it out using < br >. I don't like how its all together at ALL
and while i'm at it bold < b > would be neat too =)

i love change, but this is a bit over the top. the profiles are flashy, and I hate how they mainly show what your favorites are, not YOUR sets. it is a bit confusing to get around, and the sets are WAYYYY to big.

but thanks for trying i guess ;)

Abby said...

I love it, it's great! Just know that the majority of us are very grateful of all you do. I wish people would be more considerate when telling that they don't like it. They should at least try it out.

Lavender_Blush said...

Things I like:
1. the showcase at the top! trendy and cool!
2. how you can fave a set without going to the page! It's faster and I think many more areas should be like that on polyvore!
3. the clipped sets showcase! love it!

Things I hate:
1. the info on the side. I think it makes the info look ugly and it's difficult to read!
2. the huge sets. I know you can change it to not display favorites but I still don't like it! I liked the old set display, maybe it could be a little bigger, and with the fave option below it? (still in a horizontal line like the old one)

I think the info and stuff should be the same, only with the showcase at the top and some of the new features.
Thanks for listening!!

Anonymous said...

I can't believe this!!! CHANGE IT BACK! I liked the old one, at least give us the option to have the old format back. I HATE IT!!!!!

Tokyo said...

i really don't care for the new profiles.
i like the idea, but i would really like the smaller thumbnails back!
AND i also miss the view of drafts.

Lavender_Blush said...

Also to compromise since some people like the new one, maybe you could make it so that you can pick which features you want to see on all profiles that you view! (not just your own) because I think the new one is difficult to work with!
And not in a whole package but as seperate features...Does that make sense?

seriously, i hate it, all these new changes are making it way to easy to make a good set, u dont even have to work to make somthing good anymore, u dont have to work for sucess, i really dont like it..

I can't for the life of me figure out how to make a set on there. It is going to take a lot of getting used to.

Nice try tho...I wish we could've given you feedback before you went and changed it. Or, as I read in another post, as an OPTION! Thats a great idea. IF you either want it or not, YOU can decide!

Either switch it back or make it optional.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Is there any way you can change it back on profile settings?! I am not liking it.. super confusing!

Musi said...

I love it. Through I wouldn't think people would look for inspiration in my sets. Haha. xD

Katty ;] said...

the new design will get some getting used too.
at the moment i dont like it too much because it confuses me as i am not a blogger.
please change it back to how it was or into an easier to use format for nonblog users of polyvore

MaeGal said...

If you choose to keep them, the one thing that I would like to see changed would be HTML, VERY SIMPLE, in the "about me" spot. I would like to have it like how it use to be, allow me to add spaces between two sentences, return the lines, etc. I don't like how all my stuff is all clustered together. :)
If you keep it, this is the one change I would like to see. :)

Thanks,
Mae

Anonymous said...

i dont like it. alot of people dont.
And now that i've read that it was changed to be more blog-like, I hate it even more. If I want to create a blog, I'd go find a blog website.
>:X
HATE IT.

What you should do is give us 5-ish different layouts to choose from.

Everything right now is too big, and all out information we typed in is smashed over to the right and it looks sloppy becasue you wont allow line breaks anymore.

Anonymous said...

TO BE HONEST I DONT LIKE IT AT ALL. its soo confusing and it doesnt show what's good and the main thing about polyvore. People should have on their profile pages your sets first! The Page is so big and i cant find what im looking for. Its hard to find sets that i want. I liked the old polyvore profile pages better .PLEASE GO BACK because its really confusing and getting me agreivated and i might not stay on pollyvore anymore cuz its really annoying. Thats my true opinion polyvore! Take it in consideration!! pllease change it back or make it better. :] thanks...-jodii!

iPodFreak456x said...

WE. HATE. IT!
Please change it back!!!

Suzy Kaulitz said...

One thing I don't like about it is how the sets that I've favourited are even more noticeble/bigger than my own sets on my profile page.

My profile is suppose to showcase MY sets, not other people's...

Other than that, it's okay :)

Anonymous said...

Wow! The new profile page is definitely flashy but more complicated to navigate. It also doesn't focus on your sets, which is why people visit your profile page in the first place. How can people get a sense of your set style if so many styles are represented (i.e. the first large set image)?

sarah said...

I don't like it. Its so difficult to read someone's profile!!!!!!

elizabethsaysrelax said...

I LOVE THE NEW PROFILES!
i think everyone else just needs to give them a chance. test them out for a couple of days, maybe they will grow on you. and i personally think people (mostly the ones who don't like them) are being rude about the changes. you have the right to not like them, but you don't have to be rude about it.

InLoveWithFashion said...

I personally don't like it. The images are too big, you can't see your collections and it's not clear where your sets are and where your sets you favorited are. The old way was easier to view and gave less focus on the profile and more on the work. And I loved having my drafts to view. And the different collections of others made sets easier to see too.

Anonymous said...

Please change it back. The old profile was much better and easy to navigate just as it was. I know youre getting mixed feelings about it but please take the negatives into consideration. It makes me sad that when i check my profile, the first set i see isnt even mine. Not really advertising my sets if someone else is front and center. Sorry for not liking your new changes but i had to voice my opinion.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, but the new profile pages do not show a personal profile. Our own sets, not our contact's sets or faves, tell the most about us! Scrolling through these large-size sets made by various members is confusing and unnecessary. It was quicker and easier to view the thumbnail images on a single page. Could we have the option to return to the previous style of profile as an option? Thanks for considering this as an option!

Anonymous said...

please please change it back, I really don't like it, I miss the old one, I mayquit cause it's aweful, very confuse ing

Dead in the Water said...

Please change it back?
o-o
It is really unorganized and it makes my head hurt. u_u
Also, I can't find where to organize my items–something that makes it incredibly easy for me to make sets, and the format is helpful in letting me tag multiple items simultaneously–which will make me spazz. =__= I will continue to search for it, and try to get used to the layout, for now, also, I can't figure out how to use the item rotation, help?

Amanda =( said...

The new profile page im sorry is terrible! I cant find my items sets, and on my page it shows sets i have FAVED not MY sets! Ugh change it! Then I would like polyvore again!

Worst idea Polyvore has ever had. I've been used to using the old profiles for almost a year or so now and it's terrible to just suddenly change it. it's so confusing and ugly. i hate it. please change it back. polyvore is changing too much lately and it's a little over-whelming and causing several members to leave. please change it back! this seriously makes polyvore a lot less enjoyable

Now it just feels out of order and well..
Un-organized.
Please please pleaseeee change it back.

Well, I personally don't like it, but that's probably because I'm not used to it. Thank, Polyvore!!!

i like that the showcase is on the top. i like how the recent sets are big, and you can fave them without having to click on them. I DON'T like that we have no enters in our profile. like if i right something and press enter, it doesnt show up. i HATE that.

Hey Polyvore! There are many different views about the profile layout. Personally, I like the old one better just because it was easier to navigate and we know it and are used to it. The thing that i do like about the new profile are that they display your sets bigger! And another thing about the new profiles, i don't really like how its more like a blog. I thought polyvore was a fashion/art website, but if your trying to go more like a blog, the changes work well for that.

sarahsaurus said...

*cry* I really don't like it, it's hard to get to the 'organize items' page and I didn't think there was anything wrong with the old layout.

Could it be made an option in the user preferences which way to view profiles? I would stick with the traditional layout.

I love it! Great job you guys and thanks so much!!

Lex. said...

I really, REALLY HATE IT!!!!
Polyvore isn't a blog first of all. Second, what you favorited doesn't really matter now does it? Our sets aren't shown if we like a lot of sets, the layout is confusing and way too big to follow. Frankly Polyvore staff, I think you did this for the people just visiting the site, not for the actual users as you said in the first sentence of this blog. That's a little selfish now isn't it? CHANGE IT BACK!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't like it either...

I adore the new changes to the profile page - the larger images, and the ability to easily jump to things from the links of the right hand side of the page.

I like it, it has the links on the side for collections ect. its set up kinda like a blog it would be nice if on the side polyvore had the months and days to get to some set ect quicker!:) but other then that its pretty cool!:)

Hate it. New sets are shown way too big. Mxing in Favorites with sets people make is confusing. And its impossible to find the link to collections, etc.

Saralee said...

I was so sad when I saw the changes! It seems so messy and just not the way I want to look at my profile page. It just seems like a BIG hodge podge. The old way was awesome and so much better to navigate. It is not that I don't get how it works. I get it as I peruse many blogs . . . but I don't think this is a fitting way for Polyvore. It gives me a headache just to look at profiles. I don't really even want to make sets anymore. It would be nice to be given the choice of the old way or the new.

Anonymous said...

THIS IS SO HORRIBLE. Pleasssssssse give back the old layout or at least an option for those of us who want to see everything in the old layout.

Karmander said...

I like it better than the old way, which appeared moderately amateurish. This is a nice step up. However, a couple things to think about...

1. Could we have a way of displaying our collections again? A link on the side just isn't enough for me, and the showcase is only one collection.

2. Could you put our profile title in the "polyvore" font? The Arial is a tad too dull. Even Century Gothic would be preferable.

But I definitely like the new look, and I LOVE the big sets! Everything looks so glossy and bright!

Anonymous said...

how do you organize your items?!?

Anonymous said...

the bigger images of sets are really nice but i think it would be a good idea to listen to what the users are saying about it being confusing. i like the profile setup much more when favorites and sets are divided. it's more confusing to see both together and have to distinguish between the two. sets are much more important in a profile i think, and it should be the main focus as opposed to favorites.

I actually ADORE the profile changes, thank you very much. I really do. It might take awhile to get used to it completely, but it's a lot less bland, and much more straight-to-the-point then the old one. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

The biggest problem I have with it is the non-separation of favorites and sets. As I don't have time to make sets often they don't show up on my profile page, yet I would rather have a division between the two so people can see more of my own sets and less of what I liked. Other than that it is growing on me, but without some changes to the division I really don't like it.

How can you go through 100 or more pages to find what you want??? PLEASE bring the "Organize Items" feature back!

Alexandra said...

I'm not sure just what I think about it yet. I think it would be nicer if the showcase of the recent sets could be smaller/just previews, and an easier way to navigate to the collections and such. Also, the About Me information would look better if it were at the top of the page.

$amantha said...

I like it! I like that the recent sets are the big size, they look so much better. And it's cool to see what people have favorited and clipped recently.

Saralee said...

I did figure out where the organized items are. Thanks for not taking this away! I thought it was gone and I was ready to throw in the towel! But . . . to my surprise . . . they are still there!

I really enjoy the new polyvore page. It's really awesome and everyone can just get over that it's brand new. IT TAKES TIME TO LOVE SOMETHING! So everyone should just deal with it and they can get used to it. Their sets are displayed so much better too! So why wouldn't you like it!?

I'm not sure what to think of it yet. On one hand, I hate it, because it's so confusing to find everything. And the description thing isn't good because I can't skip lines at all and everything is jumbled together. It's really hard to use. But then, I think with time we may just get used to it. But I liked the other one better; please change back!

It should be optional though, so if people don't like it they could leave it the way it was before. And those who like the NEW PAGE can change it. I really really like it.

PLEASE DON'T CHANGE IT!! I'LL BE SAD IF YOU DO.

IF YOU GUYS DIDN'T LIKE THE NEW PROFILE PAGE, THEN YOU shouldn't HAVE CHANGED IT TO begin with

And the rest of you don't click the link called

I like the general layout, but the sizes look odd. The size of the sets was obviously made so that sets could be viewed and noticed better, but it looks like everything else was unimportant and shoved to the side. I don't really like it, I think it should be an optional thing.

this new polyvore profile page is really confusing. its cool because people can see your sets but i cannot figure out how to make a set!

Please creating an option in which we can change back to the 'classic' look if we so choose. I understand the polyvore team works hard to please it's community, so I don't want to bash it outright. But the old style profile felt so much more personal, like your page. A blog style profile in this environment makes little sense, and I'm actually weary of looking at other user's profiles...it's just too...disorganized. So if we could at least having the setting option to keep it the same if we so desire, that would be fabulous.

I do not like the new layout what so ever! It slows down my computer way to much! The large pictures are to graphic and it causes my computer to crash. It makes me not want to go on polyvore because I can't tell what sets are whose and which is which. It is far to confusing and unnecessary. please have an option for us to change it to the old lay out. thank you!

Anonymous said...

OMG I DO NOT LIKE THIS

Paris said...

Graphics load slowly and choppily now as the pictures on the profile page are too large. It has slowed down my computer to the point where it is frustrating for the user. It also, of course, now slows down other computers who share my in-home network. This will decrease the amount of time spent on Polyvore as family members cannot share the internet efficiently. It is time to re-think this new layout!

i love the new profiles.
they're amazing.
thank you so much for thinking of us.
i feel people are being very ungrateful & rude.
so i really hope you don't change them back. =]

I don't like this new profile.NOT EVERYONE IS HERE TO BLOG and have people watch their every move! I think its confusing and the other way was more fun and unique. >:(
PS: Please change it back!

i can't work out how to create a set with this new layout.. it's a nightmare!!

Lauren♥ said...

To be completely honest, I love the new profile pages!(: At first, I didn't know if I would like it since the sets were so big and you had to scroll for a little while. However, I love how it's organized. It's like a book - my sets of the day with my favorites of the day, and then the next day. Like my own journal - I love it! I also love how you can see the profile info - contest wins, descriptions, favorites, contacts, etc. all along the side without having to click back to the profle page. I know a lot of people are upset about it, but I think it's a great change - something that they'll come to love & appreciate in time! Thank you so much Polyvore!(:

Thank you for all your hard work!! I think the new profile layout is a fun refreshing change!!!!

Maryjo said...

I liked the changes in the profile, was lighter and easier to use. Congratulations!

i love the new profile setup.
its really different,
but it makes getting to know each other, our likes and dislikes, easier to do.
it also makes it easier to like other's sets--which is really nice!

so thank you for all of your hardwork...most of us really appreciate it!

I really don't like it at all. No offense but it is way too confusing, & its very hard to get to people's sets & everything. Please can you change it back. I know you are trying to make polyvore more detailed & better so it's like a blog, but its just way confusing a lot of us don't like it. Could it be used as an option tool. Say for example we can choose to use it if we want to, the people that still want to use it will still be able to, but for the people that don't want it we can have a choice not to use it.

I very strongly dislike the new format! It makes it much harder to comment on people's sets from their home page, I hate the large pictures of my sets, and the format is confusing. If I wanted to do a blog, I'd do a blog. One of the things I like about Polyvore is that it is (was at least) more focused on the creativity. It had a simple framework that allowed complex creativity. This is a confusing framework that makes it much harder to do what most of us are here to do--make sets! If it becomes just another blog site, I'm gone! Please change the format back ASAP.

Ok, well. I do not enjoy the new polyvore its too much like a blog, we are an independent site, we just started to love the new polyvore and everything about it, and now its become a confusing cluttered page. I honestly like it the way you had before, Please don't change it, again.

Shelby said...

I really like it!

Eslyn said...

Truthfully I hate the way it is set up. I liked how the profile was set up before. I think that they should change it back. But thats just me.

Your reason for changing the profile is one of the main reasons I DON'T like it: "Did you know that millions of people come to Polyvore every month to find style inspiration from your sets? Today we're pleased to announce a change to Polyvore's profile pages that makes it easier for your fans to follow your taste." This makes it clear you're all about getting more and more people on Polyvore. Fair enough, but I am not interested in "fans." I have friends and contacts but I'm on here for the creativity. In the process, I've learned more about designers and fashion than I ever have before. But I will spend less time here now because your changes make it harder for me to follow the people whose sets I care about. In other words, you've just made it harder for the "fans" to find other people's work. Change it back, please.
No one wants another lame blog imitator. Please don't go down that road--there's too much of that online as it is. Polyvore has something special, and you're ruining it.

mmhh... it makes hardly to see my own sets. But i'm still ok with this. :D

I wish my favourites were less prominant and my own sets were more prominent. I mean, I want it to display MY sets. :/

Anonymous said...

One thing I left out in my previous set is that I know you can make it so my favorites aren't displayed but I want them to be displayed only, SMALLER.

•¦Amy¦• said...

I'm actually really liking it!
At first I wasn't too sure... but it's actually a ton nicer. I think those of you that aren't liking it just have to take some time to get used to it and discover the new features.

I love that the images are bigger!

Anonymous said...

its confusing.
we would like it if u added an online symbol thing though.
thanks u so much for trying to make polyvore better.

Corrine said...

i think it would be really great if we got to chose between the new profile layout and the old profile layout, like what myspace did when they made the new profiles.

I appreciate that you guys are constantly looking for ways to improve Polyvore (thank you!). That being said, I'm not crazy about these changes. Why do our profiles have to look like a blog? I don't find this appealing and I think users that do are already displaying their sets this way via blog sites (in which case the changes are kinda redundant). Also, the new look seems very cluttered and confusing on first glance. I've already disabled showing items I clip (what is the purpose?) and sets I favorite (because depending on my activity my profile might appear solely as advertising other members work). And it seems collections are only featured when they are updated (other than the showcase and the link on the right?). This is unfortunate. Another negative is the disappearance of the "organize items" link on our profiles (now only accessible via the editor).

I'm not entirely opposed to the new look of our profiles (I definitely like that our sets are larger!)- but I mostly dislike how everything is organized by date and order of our activity (like blogs *sigh*). Maybe with some tweaking the new profiles can be organized to everybody's liking. (Or we can have optional/ customizable profile features?)

Thanks for your hard work :)

firstly id like to thank polyvore for trying think of ways to make polyvore better... but this change is NOT FOR THE BETTER.

i think its a lot less personal and messy... I also dont like how its a lot like a blog or a facebook/myspace profile... its so ununique now...

PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK... KEEP POLYVORE UNIQUE AND NOT LIKE OTHER BLOG/PROFILE SITES...

THANKS heaps for listening to what all us members have to say :)

Anonymous said...

Uhm... I'm not sure I'm the biggest fan of the new profil-page. I would REALLY by glad if you gave us the "organize items" link back. Why have you deleted it and not put it up with the other links?

I don't mind the change, but I miss the thumbnails of sets! :( Now you have to scroll down the whole page to see the sets.

The Lizard Queen said...

personally i love simple things and i want to see the things at the first sight. that's why new polyvore is complicated to me may be just because it's so new.
can we have 2 options? may be we can use both?

Diana said...

And I do not like it used to be more careful, and now sets are large and it is not clear where the hostess set profile, and where the one that she likes. I would be very grateful to you if you change everything back.

I HATE THIS NEW PAGE< GET IT BACK TO HOW IT USED TO BE- OR ELSE?

Anonymous said...

Perhaps a better resoulaton for both of the complaints that seem to be popping up for a lot of people would be to keep the old profile page, this makes the site uniform and aesthetically cohesive, and then give people the option of a link to their profile page i.e. the "more" button you already have, and under the cut, have the option to customize it.

Quite like a live journal profile page, which is uniform for the site, but then people have the option to customize it how they would like, of course you could just have perhaps 3 choices so as to not overload the Polyvore site, but this still would constitute as some sort of control of customization of their profile page.

Having such a large array of "loud" public pages somewhat overloads peoples senses and ruins the classic cohesion of the Polyvore site, with this you have both complaints addressed with the normal front page and then some "under the cut" customization

y/n

at any rate I love that you are constantly updating the site, Great Work ;)
S.A.

Tine said...

Hello It is very unfortunate that you have changed the layout, because the new is very confusing and unclear. The various groups are lost on the screen (favorites, sets, etc.) Do not make the new design please either undo or smaller pictures in the middle of the whole structured. With so many scenes you usually see the forest for the trees anymore.

might take a bit of getting use of but its looks good!

Disa Houzuki said...

i like how everything's organized in the new layout, but it makes the page loads slower. i think it's better if there's an option to choose between the old layout or the new one, and i see that there are many ppl who wants it too.
