This is so unnecessary! It's making my organizer and my editor so slow! And I don't need things to pop up and be big! It makes my sets look weird when their published.
No offense, but I'm clearly not a big fan of this.

I really love this because viewers won't need all the links below to know what product is which! I looovee the site and so excited to have such an easy way to put products into sets and share them with our readers!

i don't like it at all! it is so unnecessary & it sends me to items i don't want to go to.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, sorry, but I don't really like this new thing. it kind of takes the focus of the set.
sorry.

i hate this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't stand this. I appreciate your
efforts in trying to make polyvore better, but this is useless. It wasted hours making Polyvore slow and screwing up my computer. I think it's annoying when it's in front of the set. Just like everything else though, we'll accustom .

Josie said...

I really dislike this. It makes sets that are purely art or a design look funky. You should make it optional or just get rid of it.

focus on making something else!! like changing the 50 item limit!!

Kristina Averina said...

WOOOOW! THANKS)))))

that's cool for people who use it, although it would be rad if they took that off the sets when you look at them on polyvore, since it still lists the stuff on the side anyway, everything is always highlighted when i'm just looking! lol

Amanda said...

For all who has a blog it´s maybe useful but for all others it´s realy unneccesary. Sorry. But thx anyways for trying making Polyvore better and better!

Anonymous said...

I don't really like it. It makes it harder to work on. plus it's really slow

natalie said...

this really makes my sets look weird when they're published.

{αm}ɓigμøμsℓч sɦ{i}ɳiɳg said...

Well, to me, it seems like a good idea at first, but who will actually hover over the picture and want to know what the products are? It could be good for fashion sites, but otherwise, not many people will have much use for it.

Crescent Seward said...

I tried it, but it jumbles the line of things too much. I do, however, have a link to my polyvore account on my sidebar . . . so readers can always go there to find the products. :)

ok well i think this is stupid! can u plz stop trying to make ppolyore "better" it just slows it down and makesit wayyyy too complicated! thats just my opion

Brittney said...

This isn't needed for everyone, so the people who want it think it's fantastic, but the rest of us that don't use it just dislike it.

It should be made optional, we shouldn't all have to 'accustom' to it like another commenter said just because some people want it.

Anonymous said...

I don't even understand what this is.....
But it seems completely useless.
Why can't you make a chat room or something instead, or a way to see if your friends are online or not!
This just seems so useless compared to other things that could be done to polyvore to make it even better..
I think the next thing polyvore should work on should be making more ways to be social.
Please, please take this into consideration

I think it is unessecary and it makes it slow. Than you for your efforts but I really think you should only change things that affect our set making (like the rotate button). Things like this, the layout, and on/offline buttons are pointless to sets which is what the site is all about. You created a group asking us what we wanted but you haven't done any of the ideas and instead you have created this...It just doesn't make sense. Stop worrying about blogs and worry about Polyvore.

This is pointless. It just lags my computer, which already gos slow enough as it is. and i do agree that it makes the sets look weird.

Erica♥ said...

I don't HATE this like some other people, but I don't love in. mainly because you need to copy/paste 2 separate HTML codes now, from what I can tell?

Theanne said...

In my opinion, this is not the option for fashion sets with many items, that you consider as art, placed together nicely. Really, I think this is for simple sets that bloggers use to organize clothing options, for readers who are interested in the clothing, not the set. AFter all, I think this is optional.

Anonymous said...

It doesn´t make my Computer slower or something like that. I doesn´t feel anything bad with this new feauture. I think it´s great for all who try to make Polyvore more popular with Blogs etc. It´s a cool idea and I have nothing to say against it because I agree with this new feauture. Just try to make also something new things for the Art-Masters on Polyvore ;)
THX!!!

Im not a big fan, it makes some look weird, you should make it optional

winterlyric3 said...

retype42Not working great with my computer I'm having to refresh screens and having hard time even making a set a favorite. This may be the end of my polyvore visits!

winterlyric3 said...

I am having to refresh screens to do any function. Even making a set a favorite is an ordeal of refresh, click, refresh, click. This maybe the end of my polyvore visits!

Gothic_Pheonix said...

I agree. It's idiotic and useless. we had a better one before, and it wouldn't get in the way. And it didn't appear when you were making the set; I'm having trouble with my text because of it. It would freeze when I would try to increase the size or move it then I would have to go to my drafts and see that it was moved all the way to a corner; even though I was just trying to fix the size.

jen said...

So THIS is what's slowed down the site? I've had a horrible time trying to make sets lately. When I publish a set, I find that some items that I've resized have moved around. It takes much longer to search for items or even save a set because the site is just running so slowly. Actually, this problem has been going on for a while now, prior to this announcement, but I'm assuming that it's a related issue.

I dont understand it wont make my sets interactive!
