Update on the Latest Changes on Polyvore

The Polyvore community is incredibly important to us. Without the creativity and talent of our community members, there wouldn't be a Polyvore at all! That's why we listen carefully to your feedback and cherish the love letters you send to us.

As many of you know, yesterday we made some changes to Polyvore that sparked a lot of debate. We've been closely following the comments here on the blog, and based on your feedback we've decided to make some changes to address your concerns.

"Followers" is now "contacts" again. One of the changes we made yesterday was to rename "contacts" to "followers", because we felt that the term "followers" better captured the one-way nature of the relationship. However, many of you have said that it felt "stalker-ish" and didn't really capture the friendliness and warmth of the social interactions on Polyvore. So we've decided to change it back to "contacts". You spoke and we listened.

"Likes" vs "favorites". Another change we made yesterday was to fix our inconsistent usage of the words "like" and "favorite". We used to use the terms interchangeably, which was confusing for many people. Polyvore has had an I like this button on the set page for over 3 years, and we think it's much less confusing to use the same term everywhere.

Easier Navigation to Profile, Clipper, Organizer, Collections. The reason we changed the header and some of the links on My Home was because many people never learned about the existence of those features. The new profile tab is meant to make it easier for you to see your profile regardless of where you are on the site, and also to help you distinguish the difference between My Home and your profile page.

We can't promise that we'll always change things back when people complain (or else the site might never change! :-)), but we want you to know that we always listen and read your feedback carefully. Thanks for all your feedback and keep it coming.

Love,
The Polyvore Team

I still think the number of items in a set should be changed to a higher number than 50.

Thank you!

Thank you very much Polyvore! :)
I am very pleased with the "contacts" being back again! I just think we're all used to saying 'favorites' or 'faves' now, and that has been a part of the site for a long time and we just didn't want to see that changed!

thank you for changing it back to contacts! but can you think about taking the extra things off like "create a set", "make a collection",and "organize my items" under the mailbox button.

mary said...

thanks for changing "followers" back to contacts! it made me LOL when you said it felt "stalkerish"

Jasmine Loves Polyvore!! said...

Thank you! Polyvore is the best!!!

Emma S. said...

Thanks so mcuh for followers to contacts! however i think we should still have "FAVE & not LIKE"! "like" is wayyyyy too much like facebook, and if we have "fave" it expresses how different we are... polyvore is NOT a social-netowrking site, so we shouldnt be like one! please keep "fave"!!!!!! i still love all the other changes though! thanks!

Thankyou Polyvoree!:)
I am so grateful for all the hard work you put into the sitee:D ♥
Thanks for listeninggg!:)
And even if you do change things again, i will still love polyvore.
Just don't make too drastic changes. Cause then i'll be sad;)
Thanks again, Polvyore.
Lotsa Love.

Hey Polyvore thanks for listening! It's good to know that Polyvore listens to what the community has to say :) :)

I think some people went overboard with the negative reactions to the changes. Personally, I prefer "following", for the reasons originally given for the change. But whatever the semantics, Polyvore is a great site.

one thing that does annoy me is the 50 item limit, so if you might think about changing it to a higher number?? thank youu♥

Cai said...

Thanks polyvore! But if you really wanted to be a good listener you'd change some of the stuff we ask for. Like an on/off button, change 50 item limit, chat, ect. But yeah I feel like less of a stalker now! :D

thank you for changing back the contacts, the quick navigation to set and collection making is good :]

Kimmy said...

Thank you Polyvore! I think you guys are great and I'm never very upset by the new changes. I know I will just have to get used to them and then I will love them.
One thing I don't quite understand is the "get the clipper" button. If we already have the clipper we will never need to use that button and it just gets in the way. Is there any way to only have it show up for people who don't have it yet? If not, it's completely fine and not that big of a deal. :)

flarglepuf said...

Well, my homepage still feels overcrowded and I still see no need of 2 links to your profile on the header, but whatever, thanks for listening to our opinions!

thanks polyvore! can we have a chat room? that would be really cool!

Anonymous said...

thanks so much! contact is just friendlier than "follower"... follower makes it sound scary. can we maybe have an option to show the clipper, create a set, organize items, and make a collection under the mailbox? also, can you please add a chat room that has a high number of at least 3 digits of a maximum occupancy. also, can you drop the 50 item limit in a set?

followers was a litttle bit yea just not right to me i am glad no follwers again the way it should be contacts

sophisty said...

I was one of the many who wrote about the "follow" vs. "contact" change. This was the only serious issue I had with your update.

It speaks volumes for your design team that they responded so quickly to user feedback. Kudos!

Anonymous said...

Thanks! I really found this 'following' thing kinda creepy. Contacts is way friendlier.

Some suggestions, though: 50 items limit is annoying, maybe like 70 would be better? (If a limit is really needed), I would also like (as well as others I guess) to be able to manage my items by color, tags, brand, etc. (just like it works in the 'all items' tab), also (but this is a way smaller point) I would like you to give some more recognition to the 'mosaic' types of sets. Or maybe explain why you perhaps do not really like them...

Anyways, thanks for the wonderful job you've made so far. And thanks for listening to us :) x

Thanks Polyvore! Something I know A LOT of people would LOVE is to add a "save to my items" button next to the item in a collection. That way, you don't have to click the item, then save it, then go back to the collection to save more items! thanks for listening!

cloudburst said...

thank you for keeping it as "likes." honestly, you press "I like this" or "Me too." you don't press "I fave this set" or whatever. makes sense to me.

Thanks for always listening to us Polyvore.

I also noticed that the ability to see the ranking of your own sets based on Popularity has disappeared, and wondered why. It was nice to see which sets people responded too.

I think the 50 Item limit is an interesting challenge, but then I don't make clipped sets.

Cheers, Ketsy.

Silje Eileen said...

Have you erased our drafts? I can't find mine.

I really miss toggling between Date/Popularity. I like to know how my sets rank and look that up a few times a day.

lexi said...

hey polyvore,
thanks for ur generous update and changes but i was just wondering if maybe u could do one small favor to us all and make the sets with more than only 50 items because i can NEVER make good or amazing ones without more than 50 items in a set and also its hard to do that with the eyeshadow sets we make.if u could do that it would mean the world to me! thanks so much for listening : )

THANK YOU, LOVELY POLYVORE

and to those who are demanding for a 50 item limit lift, do you want the whole system to crash? there's a reason why there's a limit.

lexi said...

dear poly
would u mind changing the items up to more than 50 it woould help us all! thx!

Thanks for changing it back to contacts... but i still think you guys should change he 50 item limit.... its hard to keep going back and back to clip it then add more. and then its blurrier.. i dont understand why we have a limit. but thanks for the changes (:

Anonymous said...

- thanks sooo much.
I hated the following&favorites.
it just needs to stay the same.

What I think Polyvore needs is a way to tell if someone is online or not.
Maybe a green color next to their name if they are and a red if they're not. (:

can u please let go of the 50 items per set limit

NO MORE STALKAAAS!! woot woot
but i still would like for
it to be favorites again... :(

also yes, would there be a way for
you to make it so there is no
fifty item limit? this limit
causes us to re-due most of our set
so it can fit to the limit.

thank you polyvore :D

Thanks! Most sites i've used never replied back to us, or changed anything when no one liked it. I really appretiate that you listen.
One thing i have a small issue with is that even after you add it to your favourites, add the clipper is still there. to me it seems like its taking up extra space.

thanks!

This is a question and idea that i've been getting from quite a bit of my friends here on polyvore. I am planning on making a poly-pition [ polyvore potition ] giving out idea out there. i hope you'll agree that this will make it easier to see when when your contacts are on, creating it easier for you do contact them and message then faster than refreshing the entire page every 4 seconds. my idea is ;

Make a polyvore IMer. Not something like Aim or MSN but something like the thing on Facebook and Myspace. Its like a Chat and it has a list of all the people online. You select a person and you can have a conversation with them with out even moving fomr page to page. The thing at the bottum that you see on every page. But for those people who want privicy when their on, there could be an ' invisable ' 'away ' and ' online ' button to show your status. I hope you take this idea to thought and think of the convinice this could be. I appreciate your time.

Sara said...

Some people hate change, that's why they can't deal with the small changes that were made recently. Personally I like "following" better than "contacts"... it's not any less stalkerish just because the name sounds better (even though it's not stalkerish at all). That's just ridiculous and a good reason for some people to complain. Blogger and Twitter (among other sites) use the term "following", and it makes much more sense on Polyvore than "contacts" does. When I started becoming more active on the site, I wondered if I could add people as contacts or not since I don't know them personally or even interact with them at all, I just like the sets they create and want to keep track of new ones. I'm sure most of us also use Facebook and as you know they use the term "Like" now too instead of "Become a Fan". As for the links being in different places now or whatever, get over it! Give it a day and your brain will easily learn the new location. LOL I'm sorry but this is all so pathetic. Who cares what term is used, it still does the same function!

Hope I didn't offend any Polyvore people because I do appreciate the site very much and all you do to keep it great.

Anonymous said...

Thank you Polyvore for changing it back to contacts :) Is it in any way possible that the 50 item limit could be a little higher? I always run into it. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I really want the fifty item limit changed but even more I want to be able to put swearing in the notes section when we're publishing a set. Of course I have a reason for this, I'm not just some girl who likes to curse a lot, haha, but for those of us in roleplay groups when we're writing a story it helps sometimes to swear because it's a way of /expression/. It would be great if you could change that. I'm sure most of the roleplayers would be extremely gratefull.

Oh goodness Polyvore, I love you. Everyone was PMSing because you put 'followers'instead of contacts and it was pretty annoying. Like have they never heard of flippin Twitter? I didnt really mind the changes. I know you guys do it because you hope it'll make things better. So I usually just keep quiet and adjust. I love this site and as long as I can make sets and stay friends with people I am friends with then feel free to change whatever you want :)

thank you for all the changes you have done to polyvore
but i have one more small request that people will agree with me
can you make something like facebook where we can talk to people on a chat
or just see if there online
but they can change there online or offline status whenever they please


please take it under condisderation
many people have been wanting this
thank you

Thank you for changing "followers" back to "contacts". it makes more sense now. I do have an idea that might make polyvore better. What if members could have a background on their profile and home page.That way we it shows their personality. I really hope you all read this. Polyvore is awesome!!!

desislava said...

You are so amazing people! Thanks for all you made for us - artistic people, who want something real in their lives!Big kiss to all of you!

Ciara L said...

I think raising the item limit to 70 or something is a good idea, but I really don't want the site to crash because of it and 50 items is already enough. I do like the idea of submitting sets to more than 5 groups. Oh and adding a "save this" button to save items in collections instead of clicking on individual items and clicking save to save time. I know the first two are often suggested and there hasn't been any change to it, so if it's not really changeable, make a post why because it's annoying to see other make sets about it when you've seen it a million times. I love how you changed it back to contacts, BTW. It really shows that you listen to us :)

To the people who are complaining about the 50 limit - that is in place to make it easier for us. Imagine how long it would take to load if sets contained, say, a 100 items!? A set limit just makes it a kind of challenge, that most of us can easily deal with, so just embrace it please :))


The only change i'd really like to see now is the links under mailbox etc taken back out. They're totally unnecessary, particularly the clipper one..

Thankyou polyvore :)) ♥

mars♥ said...

Thank you Polyvore team for esteem our remarks about the followers/contacts change! Greatly appreciated! :)

Sterling said...

It irks me that a lot of you people can't handle the change. Yes, sometimes the changes are pointless. But they gave us the cropping AND rotating tool. Those were the two most requested things and you got it. These people are nice enough to have changed things for you and added things that they know you wanted. And all so they could see how happy it made you. They could easily make polyvore a website where you have to pay for a membership, but it's free. EVERYTHING on this site is free, and they dont have to keep it that way. So be thankful for what you have and the things they've given you so you can be happy. They've given you and easy-to-use website where it doesnt give you cookies, popups, and you can learn about all of the trends and work with fashion. And you all just keep taking from them. That's really selfish. So thank you polyvore team for all of your hard work.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for changing "followers" back to contacts. I have a lot of mutual contacts that I have become close with because of Polyvore. Followers sounded a little too "one-way" for me.

"Set likes" still sounds really awkward. "Like" is not a noun. To me "__ people like this" and "___ set favorites" sounded much better and was still easy to follow. Just my opinion.

Lastly, thank you for this wonderful community you've created. It brightens my day every time I log on.

Hey, you guys are GREAT. you seriously are. I hope you realize how much we all appreciate these amazing features and this AMAZING site. it has honestly changed my life for the better. I've learned so much about fashion, music, myself. I truly see a personality change from my first set to my recent ones of "girl trying to fit in and be popular" to "girl who wears what she wants and says what she wants and likes the music that she wants"

i believe polyvore has really shaped me as a person, and i love you all for making that possible. what a great website, seriously. (:

Thanks for listening to us! I do agree with some other people that made comments. I just don't see the reason for a 50 item limit. Maybe that could be raised a little bit higher.

Changes are ok,site now looks pretty BUT instead you're wasting time on this you could do something about the biggest problem on Polyvore,and that is copying!Some options a generally have no significance!Site has many flaws..Some still can not access the site and you making a Few New Changes?!What about-"Express your style" when everybody stealing others ideas???????
If you're satisfied how site works now,good for you,but if things like this (copying,stealing pic.,flaging..) continued,many great poly members will go away.It's up to you.

Dearest Polyvoree Staff,
I'd just like to say thanks for listening to us(: I didn't know you could get back to us so quickly! Yes, our complaints are so petty sometimes, I suppose all just have high standards for our lovely Polyvore. xD
This is an even smaller request, but I figured I may as well. On the top bar of links, where it says;
My Home Profile Shop Ask Explore Create
what happened to the bigger font?
I preferred it bigger, so it was easier to click(:
just an observation.
But, thanks again Polyvore(:

hi I love the whole idea, but I would just like to say that some of the items aren't coming up. If i want to look at tops it says item not found!! PLEASE FIX IT!!

I actually agreed with the change from 'contacts' to 'followers' and the developers' reasoning made perfect sense to me. Obviously, my opinion was part of a very small minority.

All well, I always was a non-conformist.

Thanks for listening! Im glad it's 'contacts' now again [:

Polyvore team,
Thanks SOOOOO much for changing that back! I am really thankful that you guys are good enough to go through all of the comments (because I know that was a lot of reading). I have read a few of the comments and some of them said something about a chat room, can you NOT do a chat room please? because Polyvore is not a social network it is a creative website that you can express yourself through. I also read about the 50 items thing, I do agree with that though could you maybe change that too? please? if not I understand.

Thanks a bunch!

Thank you very, very much for not only listening to our complaints but taking them to heart as well. I still worry about "the Great Site-Model Debate",though. As long as people have permission I see no reason why we can't use their pics, especially since as you also said it's "public domain". I mean some of the baby pictures I sided with you but, but if its a model or celebrity baby, I also see no reason to deny us use.
Thank you.

Dessi said...

I appreciate your work, it does look much better now :) But I think you should considering improving the groups' features, because it should have more options, like removing moderators, and things like that :)

Thank you for listening to the community and for being so responsive! You have created something very wonderful and original and you are all deserving of phenomenal success. :) so happy!

Bethany said...

Yay thankyo son much I hated "Followers" I think "Contacts" is alot better as it feels alot more friendly! XD

Night_butterfly said...

Im SO glad to see 'add to contacts' again!I never thought that you will actually read what we had to say and change it the way most of the people wanted to!
THANKS :)

Thank you so much for listening!! you guys are the best!!

Thanks! WOOO! But I agree with some people. The number of items in a set should be at least 75 ;)

Anonymous said...

the whole "follow" thing was really weird. and stalker-ish.
i like the contacts better.

I knew when I joined this community that I had found something special. Indeed, you have proven that you are not only unique, but compassionate, in that you truly care for your members. They spoke and you listened. I am impressed!

Continue doing this and you will surely stand out on the world wide web. You have proven that you are not just another 'facebook' or 'twitter', but you are polyvore!

This is one of the many reasons I have an account here and not on 'facebook' or 'twitter'.

Thank you polyvore, for giving us 'contacts' instead of the 'stalkerish' feeling 'follow'.

Polyvore, you ROCK! That's a fact!

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much(: I have one question though. I would love it if u could change the 50 limit thing that way we don't have to clip our sets. If u can not change it can you at least tell polyvorians why?

Anonymous said...

I'm not really a fan of the new home page.

Anonymous said...

Thank you Polyvore! I'm very happy now! But I have one question, do you think you could change the items in a set to a higher number limit e.g. 100 ? :)

Christine said...

for some reason i had this sneaking suspicion "followers" might be back to contacts, i looked, it was, i literally did a fist pump and thanked God, then immediately got on here to express my appreciation XD rofl.

and yes, i know everyone complains whenever there are any changes XP but to me more important changes are not the wording of things but rather features. who can complain about being able to change the color of the text? no one i would think, rofl.

but yeah, i'm happy again. haha

poor Polyvore has to put up with a million moody Polyvorians everytime they make any dang change XP rofl.

ildo said...

I really appreciate your flexibility!!!!!!!Thank you so much!

Anonymous said...

thanks for changing it back! but i must say all the poly users were really harsh about it :|
but i reeaalllyyy think to make people more happy you should REALLY raise the item limit for creating sets. i wanted to make a collage but it exceeded the limit. PLEASE take this into consideration poly!!

thnx! :b

I was just wondering why we can only enter sets in 5 groups. It would be awesome if we could enter them in more. Thanks for being the most amazing website!!!!!!!!

hi! i love the new changes on Polyvore. But i would like to point out a few things. first thing is the 50 item limit. a lot of people need more than 50 items to create a set! some sets arent simple. and it gets annoying to clip because it gets blurry. i know a lot of poeple have been complaining about that. second is when you crop. another thing that gets frustrating is when you run out of cropping squares when cropping an item. i was cropping a victorias secret bra for the contest and couldnt because i had no more cropping squares. that is a MUST change. thank you for taking all of these things into account. hopefully you make these changes to make Polyvore an even better more fabulous website!
