Color Block Tool, Rectangular Crops, My Home changes, oh my!

UPDATE (4/7/2011): Thanks for all of your feedback. We hear you and understand your concerns. Please give us a few days as we work on some ways to address them. Thanks so much for your patience!

Dear Polyvore Community,

We have some exciting new updates for you today!



Color Block Tool
There's a new tool in the editor that lets you spice up your sets with colored blocks! Just click the "Colors" option to see popular palettes, like grays, earth tones, and brights. Drag a color block to the canvas, resize it, rotate it, and use it to build cool backgrounds, frames, and fillers. As you add items to your set, we'll automatically suggest additional colors that complement your set. You can also search for keywords like "water" and "love", which will return popular colors from ColourLovers that are associated with those themes. We hope this will be helpful for those of you who have already been clipping images of colored rectangles to use as backgrounds. Unlike clipped images, you can resize these blocks in all directions to create rectangular shapes without using the custom background tool.




Rectangular Crops
We invented the custom background tool so you could crop out mannequins and models, but we noticed many of you also use it to resize photos and other images. To make it even easier, we've added rectangular crops to the custom background tool. Just select the rectangle icon in the top right corner, and drag the corners of the crop region to suit your needs.



My Home - View Counts
, Activity Stream Changes
As we mentioned in our blog post about upcoming site changes, one of our goals is to give you a better understanding of your audience. Millions of people view Polyvore sets every day, but most people never click the "Like" button because they don't have a Polyvore account. To better reflect your full audience, we've added more information about your set views to My Home and have altered some aspects of the activity stream:
  • Graph of set views on My Home. This is a great way to track your sets' popularity. Many of you were granted early access to this feature and have been using it for a while. For those of you who don't see it, you can go to your account settings and check the "Show stats in My Home" checkbox.
  • View notifications in your activity stream. When your sets are among the top 1000 most viewed of the day or if you cross an important view count threshold (like 1000 total views or 10K or even 100K), we'll notify you in your activity stream.
  • Notifications from non-registered members. You may also start to see notifications of unregistered users who are adding you to contacts or liking your sets. These appear as "A fan from New York added you to contacts".
  • Collapsing of likes and comments. We've also tweaked the activity stream so that your like & comment notifications are collapsed. This allows you to see more notifications at once.


As always, feel free to share your feedback by leaving us a comment here!

CHANGE BACK THE HOMEPAGE NOW! I HATE IT! I WILL LEAVE! IT'S TOO CONFUSING. WHY, POLYVORE, WHY?!?!?!?!?!? NO ONE LIKES IT!

Alexandra said...

The new like/comments feed is not good. What's the point in saying X, Y and 26 others liked your set ???? The previous version with a small miniature of the set and the member icon was 1000 times better.
I have updated to Show stats, and the links towards the last comments disappeared. I check my PV account once per day, when I come back from work, so how do I know who and what commented? Should I read all the X, Y and 71 others have commented on your set...?
I think coulour blocking and rectangular crop are useful, but the new feed is not OK. I hope you will reconsider this. The new thing seems to be made only for those who are avid for faves, and want to know every second how many have liked their sets. For me the comments are more important.
This was 1000 times better than FB, we could preserve its originality. You are great in creating an incredible atmosphere here pn Polyvore, and I know that you will take my opinion into account.
Thank you.

everything is pretty cool except that graph change was driving me crazy a few days ago because I couldn't see my Activity Summary. Changed it back to normal :P

MarinaM said...

NO,NO,NO AND AGAIN NO !!!!!!!!!!
Dear Polyvore, Im a member for 3 years and I loved all your changes but this one I can`t stand.
Please put it back like it was before PLEASE !!!
I have to admit that Im a bit mad because of this change :(
The most important thing is that it should be easy to use and to be descriptive.
Activity Summary is so awful :(
Put it back like it was before PLEASE!!!
Everything else is fine!

Dear Polyvore representative(s),
I,for one,love all the changes,EXCEPT the recent activities.Also,while,or if,I have your attention;if we add the color blocks,can we NOT have to add products?I mean,sometimes we want to express our feelings without adding random things,you know?
The new recent activities make it difficult to see who commented,and it doesn't show all the comments in order.
Other people who agree with me;
http://www.polyvore.com/ugh/set?id=30119000
http://www.polyvore.com/eww/set?id=30118700
Just to name a few.
Please change the homepage back,everybody liked it the way it was before.

Olivia said...

Polyvore, as much as I adore polyvore & I usually absolutely love the changes, I’m not too sure I like the new “my home” page. I appreciate all the work you do into making polyvore a better place, and I really do like the other changes you made (rectangular crops and colors) but I find the new “my home” layout is really confusing. For example I like to see individual people comment on my set, when they comment on it, and which set they commented on. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

The Polyvore is awesome, but I preferred notices the way they were before, please, everything is pretty good, just that this could return to what was formerly
Thanks

Rachel said...

Can you please un-collapse the comments? I love the graph and the other updates but hate having to check each individual set to see the comments.
Thank you for always improving!

I like the colour block tool & the new cropping system but I do not like the new My Home changes.
I believe that a lot of polyvore members do not like it. It is too confusing & we like to see who faves & comments on our sets.
Please try and change it back.

Anonymous said...

The color block tool is so cool! It'll be especially helpful to quicky make white or black background for cropped and mini sets (: I also love the rectangular crops. It's such a handy feature.
At first, I didn't think I'd like the Home changes, but they're growing on me. It is a lot easier to see more things at once.

Keep up the good work, Polyvore! (:

I really hate the changes about Collapsing of likes and comments. Please change the before.... thanks!!

Good Updates love them very much, I don't under stand why people are freaking out over them though?

LipsLikeMorphine said...

The graph is fantastic.
I've always wanted to know how many comments I've got altogether.

But all the set likes being together aren't helpful.

I can barely see it.

Can we have to option to change it back to the old one please?

i dont like it

Rachel said...

The new homepage is very ugly and a little too organized. It's hard to read and use.
I love the colors though!

i love the color block tool. thank you polyvore. :D

I like the color blocks, the rectangle cropping, and the graph but my home is really confusing now, with all the things in one it looks kind of weird. I guess it will get better, but I think before was easy and I liked that, so I know who liked one of my sets, instead of ______ and 6 other people liked it. Can you get rid of the 50 item limit next?

Anonymous said...

I'm not a big fan of the collapsing comments and likes...I don't know about everyone else, but I liked bein able to see who exactly liked my set, not fakeusername and 67 other people liked your set.
I dunno. Maybe it's just me.

emily has breadvison said...

I LOVE THE RECTANGULAR CROP. KEEP IT.
I also like the color blocks. Vrey creative!
But, I HATE the new comment/like.template usage system. Please change it back! I can't see all of my comments, and I end up not responding to a lot of them!

Anonymous said...

I'm not a fan of the new changes to the hme page. I liked when I could see each individual person who liked or commented on my sets. Please, change it back!!!

Anonymous said...

I think the colors thing is cool, and the rectangular crop DEFINITELY helps me and saves a ton of time. I like clean cuts on my pictures, so it works well. But the activity changes are AWFUL. I like being able to see what each individual person has posted, and when. I use my activity feed to return faves and see who's looking at my sets. It's difficult when I have to go through a million different links just to see who has faved my set. It only shows the most recent comment and the likes are annoying when I only see who has most recently liked it. The old version was easier for me, and as far as I can see, everyone else as well. Please stop trying to make this more like Facebook. The old activity summary was perfect.

Dear Polyvore,

WOW thank you. I love the cropping tool, makes it easier to crop a photo, oxox Loving the color block as well because now i don't have to "search" for a solid color square.xoxo and i like that we can change the shape without really cropping.

I Loved the whole "view" count..it's been helpful to know how many people actually visit my page and view my sets. I am very thankful for all who come by from poly and outside, and now i know what "A FAN from CANADA" likes your set is about, lol i did not get that , but now i do.
Again Polyvore you are making trends and paving the way on how internet/fashion will be..you guys are always 10 steps ahead, love that i am part of this and so honored. oxoxo Keep it up!
I have one feedback..it would be lovely if we can add contacts all at once instead of one by one. Like a "select all to contact" button...oxoxox

CUPCAKE HUGGGGGGGGGSSSSsss..oxoxo
Love always Jessie(paint)

Dear Polyovre, I adore you really, i love your new changes and the graph of set views is cool :) But i mean really come on, can you change the recent activity back to normal? It's really hard to get who did what. Everything's great, just the homepage is really annoying.

-catherine- said...

Polyvore, please please please change back the activity feed back to how it was before. I don't like how I can't see the profiles of the individual people who have liked or commented on my sets, so I can't comment back or like their sets in return :( The new system is less personal and more about the running totals of your set likes, which is not what Polyvore is about... in any case people who want to know how many likes their sets have could always just go onto their profile pages and check themselves.
I always really like your changes, but this one is too confusing and impersonal. I do like the colour blocking thing though! Just please change the news feed back to how it was. Thank you!

Anonymous said...

I also prefer the homepage the way it was before. Please change it back soon!

Lexie said...

Please change back the homepage. One thing that is bad about it is that I like to return faves but it says blank and 10 others liked this set it is challenging. Please change it back I love polyvore but this is way to confusing I will leave if I can't understand this.

Anonymous said...

the color block tool is fantastic, thanks! the rectangular tool is great too and unlike many others who commented before me i like the new activity feed too, it suits me fine :)

I love the color blocks and new cropping tools, but I hate how my home looks now. It's really confusing and complicated and hard to follow. I would strongly suggest you change it back for everyone's convenience. But I really do love the other changes! :)

LipsLikeMorphine said...

Every change but the recent activity is amazing.

Love the graph. [Especially that its optional]

And the colour block - since you can change there size so they are any type of rectangle.

minted said...

I don't like how the notifications look like. The rest is great.

juliasou said...

I love that Polyvore really seems to listen to its community and this is why I am saying:
I really DON'T like the new layout for the likes and comments, as well as the icons. It is very confusing. I take a lot of work in seeing each and every day the people that visit my sets and I try to return their kindness as much as possible; I even do this although it takes my time off doing a new set, because Polyvore is all about community! PLEASE I beg of you return this feature to its former way!
I did like to see that I was on the "1000 most viewed" and that statistics things are nice, but the Activity Summary is just chaos!

Anonymous said...

Why are you guys always changing?! Just leave the website like it was! It was so much better! Geez polyvore, come on!!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the color blocking and the Rectangular Crops tool. That's very helpful.

Please change back the comment and likes thing. It was waaay better the way it was before

Britni said...

change the home page back! it sucks and i hate it...along with a whole lot of other people on polyvore! please please please change it!

Liberty said...

So may I just add to this, and say: I do hope you're not going to be changing all the old accounts over to the home page that the new accounts have. A friend and I made a joint account to post a story we're writing together, and basically, each of our contact's sets are displayed, big like they'd be on a regular user page, and it's absolutely ridiculous. If that becomes the norm for every "My Home" page, I think I might have to give up in disgust. Because it's ridiculous. I greatly dislike it.

That came out harsher than I'd intended, but...yeah. :)) Just my two cents.

Liliana said...

Homepage is confusing ! Put back old layout !
Let me quote Alexandra : The new like/comments feed is not good. What's the point in saying X, Y and 26 others liked your set ???? The previous version with a small miniature of the set and the member icon was 1000 times better. so how do I know who and what commented? Should I read all the X, Y and 71 others have commented on my set...?

Holly said...

the color blocks are very convenient, and the new crop tool is great. however, the activity summary change is NOT GOOD. the way you had it before was much more personal, and the comment bubbles were soooo cute. i want to know exactly who liked my set and when. i do not want everything all clumped together, very hard to read, and kind of pointless.
please change it back. thank you polyvore!

Anonymous said...

i thank you for your work, it's amazing how much energy you put in this site! polyvore's changes have always been pretty much to mi like, and the new things are great as well this time - IF IT WASN'T FOR THIS NEW HOME THING! it's confusing and it will take ages to get used to it, the old one was way easier to oversee. this is too much text and confusion goes with it!

I dont like how the notifications is at all Everything else is great but I hate the new Homepage.

kylie_theFASHIONnerd said...

First of all, thank you SO MUCH for adding the colors and rectangular cropping features. The graph on the homepage is good too. However, when the news feed says "whoever, whoever, and 34 others liked your sets" you are not easily able to see the last few people who have liked your sets. Part of the way that I discover new members and their sets is because they like my sets first and I am easily able to click on their link to their profile to return some of the faves. With the new layout, it is more difficult to do this. Thanks for listening to our opinions!

Ok Polyvore.......generally I just adapt to whatever changes you guys make. It is what it is. BUT.....
the Home changes/recent 'activities' changes are NOT GOOD. Its too confusing to everyone. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK!!!!

I've said this before and I'll say it again....What you SHOULD DO if you're gonna make changes is put it up to a VOTE ~ at least we'd have a say in it, instead of just having to deal with it.

I'm with everyone else. Please change it back. The colour thing is cool; rectangular crop is cool, but the home changes have GOT TO GO!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But love you guys :))

not you. said...

i think its awesome!

Anonymous said...

I've always supported your changes, but my homepage is wayy to cluttered. :[

POSH Powell said...

I absolutely abhor the collapse of comments and likes. It's so irritating. I hated the way it was before you recently changed it as well. I think that we should be able to choose how we want our announcements, likes, and comments to show up on our homepage. I liked the old way MUCH better.

Anonymous said...

Please Uncollapse comments, it makes it so much harder to read - epecially when your in a hurry.
I thought the graph thing would be cool but its not, so I wouldnt be using it. It would be a nice add on &not getting rid of what was there already.

Nelle said...

I love the color block and the rectangular crop but the homepage is so confusing now. I liked the activity summary the way it was before. The graph is so meaningless to me and it was easier to just log on and know where to look to see how many likes I had or how many comments. The older way was much simpler.

blue cotton said...

guys calm down. its not that serious. i understand the rectangular crop. ive been wanting to do that for the longest time.

Anonymous said...

my one request is when you switch to the stats option (with the graph) that you make the likes, comments etc right below the graph links to all your recent comments, all the recent sets, like on the old one. it would really be the best of both worlds.

isa said...

I think the big issue for me with the new homepage look is that it makes it HARDER to reciprocate likes. I always check out who's liked my stuff to find other polyvore users with the same tastes to add as contacts. The new activity feed makes that much harder and injures the social networking component :/

Anonymous said...

i LOVE the color clock tool and the rectangular crops i cant wait to use them! but i dont get the new homepage... i liked the old one ALOT better

Erin Danielle said...

i love to color thing and the new Notifications set up i love it all...
and i have a idea on what to do with homepage, give people a chose to do more around on my home, like give them a layout to play around with, like I'm always looking for new friend and awesome set so i use the people you mint like a lot more then Contacts' Sets, so i would put people i mint like on top of my page.

hey, Polyvore staff :)
I dunno. I think you should change back the profile page....
reasons:

1. It's reallyyyyy confusing
2. I loved the original one!

I just..... really liked the other/normal/original one :)

PLEASEEE CHANGE IT BACK!?!??!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Really, really not liking the new homepage. I just don't understand how this is an improvement over the old style? It was so much less in your face and easy on the eyes, not to mention clearer and more simple to understand, before. I'm sure I would adjust to it over time, but I really would prefer not to have to!

I don't think anyone- including myself- likes the changes made to the My Home page. The simplicity of the previous setup was a lot more convenient. Many of us would like it a lot better if you changed it back. The other changes made- the rectangular crop and the color blocking- are fine but many of us would appreciate the former My Home setup to be returned to Polyvore.

lavender said...

I like the new features, the color block will be cool and the rectangle crop will be cool. I don't plan on using the graph but it's an interesting feature and I like how we can turn it on and off.
But I really hate the new comments thing! It's so confusing, clumsy, and inconvenient. It doesn't show me what I want to see. I and alot of others MUCH prefer the previous speech-bubble model; which was fun and easy to use! Please change that back!

Anonymous said...

I like the old polyvore before. I would LOVE it if the comments and like weren't bunched together, just showing one indiviual like or comment, announcment, etc.
Thanks!

First of all i hate the home page. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK!! Second of all.. whats the custom background tool?? I've never heard of it or seen it before..someone please tell me where it is it looks awesome! Thanks!

knoxdiver said...

I agree with most of the comments here. Allowing nonusers to like our sets is awesome. The color blocking is super helpful, as is the rectangular block. These all make sense. But I'm not liking the activity changes. I liked seeing which of my items someone used AND what their set looks like. I like seeing the announcements from my groups, that way I can immediately weed out the important from the non-important ones. I liked being able to see exactly who likes my owns sets and what they say when they comment. I think this change needs to be reworked.

Anonymous said...

I love the new color blocks and rectangular crops... but why can't you custom the color blocks? to make other shapes and stuff? that would be even beater.
and no offense but no one likes the new recent activity stuff... make some changes to that cuz it's hard to read and just plain confusing. thanks!!

isabelle.jayne said...

Please change the homepage back! It is so confusing to see all of these "so and so and 18 others liked your collection". I don't know what they're liking and I really don't like it. I think it adds a lot of more unnecessary text on the page. It was much cleaner before and it actually makes it harder for us to do things on our homepage like see the sets people are liking. Personally, I liked being able to just see what people commented or liked without going to a whole other page just to see it. I've read many more comments and I know that lots of other users share my opinion, so I would like to ask you again to please change back the home page. Thanks for reading.

Ilana said...

While I understand that the new homepage allows users to view more information at once, I have noticed that the announcements, comments, and set likes all become kind of cramped and I am constantly having to look twice to analyze what I'm looking at on the home page. Please please please change it back!
Thanks if you guys do! Love! :D

love the color blocking and new cropping method!

Jilbert said...

I will second, third, etc. the dislike of the new "activity summary" ... I have tons of activity and collapsing them has made it impossible for me to keep up with them. The way it is now is totally worthless to me. I might as well go through every single set that I've ever made, every day, to see any comments, etc. I'm hoping that you will take note of all the objections to this particular change, and either change it back or give us the option to specify how we want our activities displayed.

♥Ruh Weasley-Cullen♥ said...

I didn't like this new like/comments feed. It's confusing, and it's a little bit annoying too. I think i was a great idea shows up who fave that set, but in "My Home" things should get back like it were before.

Please change back the activity summary - I cannot see announcements without going to the group pages; I can no longer see the name of the sets when I scroll over them and more. Overall, it is not an improvement, in my opinion - it has slowed me down.

LOVE all of the changes! Next round of changes... could you include an opt-out to group invites? That would be awesome! Also, are there any privacy issues like Facebook has with selecting "like"?

Anonymous said...

I love all of the changes you've made recently and in the past, but I agree with the majority about the activity feed. It's much easier for us to stay caught up with activity when each like, comment, and new contact is listed individually. Personally, I don't have an interest in "100 other people" liked your set. Please change it back. It feels like jumping through hoops to get caught up with everyone!

Anonymous said...

I LOVED the new rectangle cropping. It's so useful and easier to make straight lines now! xD But, I really really really don't like the new homepage. I find it very frustrating on and almost disorienting. Would you change it back? New things are good to try but this time it just didn't really work out in my opinion. Thank you!

hello@love said...

NOOOOOOO. DO YOU NOT SEE THAT NO ONE LIKES THE CHANGES? heres a rule of thumb that i hope you see. Adding new things, like the color blocks and rectangle crops, is good. Adding is good. but CHANGING. and getting RID OF THE OLD. IS NOT GOOD. theres no point of making it a,b,and 16 others liked your set. it makes things harder, it was so much better when you could see every individual. or if you really enjoy this change, make it optional to have it. if you have any common sense, youll see that no one likes this. and isnt your purpose to make more people like it? YOU. FAIL.
with hate,
hello@love

Anonymous said...

Well I hope you change the homepage back like you did when you changed "Contacts" to "Followers". That would be so cool :) Obviously the polyvore community is NOT happy with the Homepage changes you made {I for sure no I'm not}. So be awesome and change it back please?


It'd be very much appreciated :)
Thanks, that is IF you do haha.

Hannah Percyowl said...

Colour blocks - awesome.
Graph, also awesome. Just like rectangular crops, it does get frustrating when a pixel is out of line, then you click and accidental add anthoer point and etc.
I unsure about the stream though. I like the notifications, I got a top 5000 viewed which is awesome for me. I like just that 'thisperson added your set as a fav' rather than mentioning the 20 others? I dunno, I just want to know about the one person. But otherwise good :)

buffyfan_5 said...

I like all of these changes! I don't think that has ever happened to me before with any changes on any website, so congratulations!

Anonymous said...

Well I would have to say that I liked knowing who commented on what as well. the icon version was much better. however, i also have another complaint. I always get these messages saying so and so used this item in this set. I get a million of these notifications. I don't want them. can you like make it so we can choose whether or not we what those to show? thanks

I love the rectangular cropping and the color blocking, but I hate the new homepage! It's SO much harder to fave back people!

Anna said...

The only thing I don't like is the collapsed comment and notifications. Now I have to go to their polyvore to see what picture of mine they used. It was just easier to see what people used and the comments they gave and you didn't have to go to the set or the other person's page.

Anonymous said...

I agree with most of the comments below mine. The colour blocking and rectangular crop features look great! But I cannot see who has commented on my set without having to go all the way into the set? ): I'm not particularly bothered with views or likes, comments mean a lot more.

Thanks for all the great upgrads! And thanks for the nice compromise on the home page. It was fine before, but we do understand that change is part of life. Thanks for keeping Polyvore fresh and new!

I LOVE the rectangle cropping tool. It makes everything so much easier, and I have been wishing that you'd add a feature like that forever! Thanks!

sophisty said...

The activity changes are AWFUL. I like being able to see what each person has posted, and when, because I use my activity feed to return faves. If Helleka liked seven of my sets, and commented on three of them, then I used to see all of this in one place. With this change, I have to go through every single one of my sets just to see who has faved or commented on a set. This means jumping from my set to return a fave, then back to my set, and so on until I have returned all faves for that set. And then going to the next set, and so on. Can you see how time-consuming that is? The old version was intuitive and easy. This version is time consuming and clunky. Please, please, PLEASE change it back, or make it optional, like the graph!

Victoria said...

YES FINALLY SO UPGRADES! Thanks Polyvore!! Please continue to upgrade and add more features! Like better fonts. :)

I appreciate you thinking of us and constantly making polyvore a better place, and I usually enjoy the new features, but the new homepage is so confusing. I don't like it at all. Plus, when people add your sets to a collection, there's no link to the collection so I have no idea what collection my set has gone into. It's also very clustered. Please, please, please revert it back the the way it was originally.

Anonymous said...

Love the new set up! Its MUCH neater and easier to read. If you want to see exactly who liked it just CLICK THE LINK its that simple :)
Keep up the good work Polyvore!!! Unfortunately you cant please everyone :( Can't wait to see what great new updates you come up with!

Stream said...

dear polyvore: I think we're all asking the same thing: Please switch back to the old homepage with the old new/like comments feed!!!It's confusing, unpractical, you have to go back to every single set to see the comments and I think for most of us comments are way more important than favorites! I hate the graphic too! I changed it back because I couldn't see my activity summery in a proper manner! (from the graphic you cannot know if you have new set usages, contest wins or collection likes!) So PLEASE change the homepage again!! It's horrible!!!
I love the other features, and I agree with Alexandra on this: "This was 1000 times better than FB, we could preserve its originality. You are great in creating an incredible atmosphere here pn Polyvore, and I know that you will take my opinion into account." don't make polyvore into something is not! Thank you, polyvore!

Shelby said...

OK usually I never complain about website changes, because it is always people who are just afraid of change and eventually they get used to it. Unfortunately, I can't sit by for this change. I understand that it would be very useful for many people, especially those who get many likes, faves, and comments. I, on the other hand, don't get many of these things, and I like to respond to each one personally. It makes it very hard, for example, to look through people who have used my templates, when clicking on the notification just brings me to every template use. I think this is definitely a great design for some people, but I would appreciate being able to opt out of it so I can get a more personalized view of my followers. Thanks for the consideration. =]

I also agree that I do not like the new homepage setup. I really wish it never changed.
As for the color block and rectangle crop tool, I LOVE those!
2 out of 3 isn't bad but please change my home back!

Anonymous said...

So LOVE these changes EXCEPT the homepage change =( Please change it back. The graph is nice, but not really useful to me. Maybe it can go at the bottom of the page for those who like that sort of thing, or have a link to the graph. But the activity summary is soooo hard to read now. I like to see who liked my sets and which ones, and who commented on which set and what they said. This is NOT user-friendly.

But the other changes sound AWESOME!!!! Thanks soooooo much!

Thanks!

The color block + rectangular crops are cool new features, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE CHANGE THE MY HOME CHANGES! I HATE NOT BEING ABLE TO SEE ALL MY LIKES INDIVIDUALLY AND WHO SPECIFICALLY HAS LIKED THEM AND MADE COMMENTS. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK! PLEASE!

Leocadia Thistle said...

I'm afraid I don't like the new homepage much. At all. I'm sorry, Polyvore, I know you worked very hard on it, but it seems overcrowded and difficult to read. The colour blocks, on the other hand, will be very useful. Thank you for those!

MsVelveteenRabbit said...

Okay, I don't normally do this, but I feel the need to. I DO NOT like the new format. No longer can I see everyone who faved a set, or commented. This is not okay. You see, whenever someone faves something of mine, I like to check out their profile, give them a "thank you" fave, and then fave more if I really like theur stuff, thusly discovering their art and them. this new format does not allow that. I am deeply opposed to this because we are not Facebook, nor are we Twitter. Polyvore is its own, separate entity with its own goal. I though this goal was community: to have people see you arts and thoughts, and then to be able to see other people's art and thoughts. This new formatting hinders that, which perturbs me to no end!!

Further more, Polyvore is not setting a good example to the young women (and even men) who frequent this cite as an emotional and artistic escape. Think back on all the sets you have ever viewed. How many have been of someone feeling bad about themselves over their appearance or weight? I know plenty of my sets and poems explore that theme. Most of us are unselfconscious and wouldn't hesitate to change ourselves in order to fit in. This, most of us would say even as we do it, is wrong. And what is our dear Polyvore teaching us by trying to be like other websites? By changing itself to fit in? Polyvore is sending us all the wrong message and telling us that it is okay to betray your own morals to be liked. This almost makes me sick! The majority of our users are female, and we already constantly feel the pressure to be prettier, to be thinner, to smile bigger and laugh louder, even when we’re sad. To fit into the supermodel’s dress. To conform to others’ beliefs. We need to have some place that allows us to feel good about ourselves, to express our thoughts freely. I thought such a place was Polyvore, but maybe I was wrong.

Anonymous said...

1st of all many thanks for the rectangular cropping tool. Secondly, I'm sad to say that I'm not happy with the new activity feed on my homepage, since the changes. It's extremely cluttered as it is now. It was much easier to see the comments and likes before. And much easier to read the comments and fave back those who've faved and commented on my sets. The new drop-down menu to view all activity on a set is a cool feature but takes too long to locate these, because of the general feed clutter. The prior and simpler version of this was much more useful. I can see you guys have worked hard on this, but it just isn't as user friendly as it used to be. Hope that you change the feed back to the earlier version. Thanks.

I think the color black tool will be good. But i hate the homepage how it is. Its really confusing me and i like clicking on all my contacts that like my sets and like their sets. The new homepage is just really confusing so please could you change it back.

Amanda said...

I love all the changes save for the new activity summary. I had absolutely no problem with the way it was before. I wish there was a button that would un-collapse the activity feed. And I have commented before in the issues many people have been having with templates. The placeholders have a tendency to shift after they are saved. This is maddening when trying to create an evenly spaced template. If you could fix that issue it would be very very much appreciated!

Anonymous said...

Please, dear Polyvore. Tell me why you would change the front page when you knew everyone liked it the way it was, and even complained when it was changed in the first place? You're actions aren't very logical, now are they? Change it back, please. Because, to be perfectly honest, it kinda looks icky now. In essence, not good, no es bueno, tres mal, etc. And please stop being illogical.

Anonymous said...

Both MySpace and Facebook lost a ton of their users (myself included) because they kept making the layout more and more complicated. Simple and efficient is what works. Not complex and inefficient. The activity feed was fine the way it was. Now it's not. I hope you do one thing what Facebook and Myspace failed to do: LISTEN TO THE USERS> READ THIS SPACE. The majority of the people don't like the new feed. And if things don't change back to what it was, you will lose them. Gradually maybe but GUARANTEED. No clicks, no users, no sponsors, no business. The end of Polyvore. That would be sad.

I'm sorry Polyvore... I absolutely LOVE your site and how you try to make it better and better, but the new homepage changes are awful!!
It was so easy to see who commented or liked something and now it isn't anymore... Everything looks the same and it's almost impossible to get it clear what friends and other contacts did?!
It says 'friend 1, friend 2, friend 3 and 26 others have liked this set, and then you can see the whole list. Why not the whole list in the first place (like before)??
PLEASE change the homepage back!!!
I ♥ Polyvore

PirittaP said...

I have to agree with several other commenters. The color blocks and rectangle crop are excellent features, thank you for them! However, I am not happy with the new homepage like/comment feed. It makes socializing in Polyvore more difficult. Now it is really hard to see who has liked your sets recently, and to click through the feed to return likes and add people who have added you. I guess I have to change my habits, but I cannot promise to like it. I think this change is cool if you want just to follow how big amount comments your different sets have, but not so nice if you want to connect with other members and be nice and return likes and comments. And for me at least, Polyvore is about the latter, connecting with people and supporting others.

Please change the home page back to how it was. I don't like how it shows how many likes you've got now. i preferred it the way it was before. It was a lot easier and now it is so confusing. I'm not going on as much now because of this. I really don't like it so please please please change it back.

I HATE the recent activity. IT'S NO GOOD. I DO NOT GET A PERSONAL VIEW OF WHO DID WHAT ON MY SITE

friedenlinde said...

New creating features re always cool, and so these are! so way thank you. BUT I got to tell, as all the rest of polyvore users and lovers already told, the home is now extremely confusing, and not helpful at all. It reall makes me not wanting to know WHO is that liked my set. A thing that previously I was costantly doing was going to the friend who liked my set to see and discover hers/his sets. Polyvore is a creative place, where you can also meet other people with similar taste, and what's the point of "liking" the sets or commenting on, if I can't see it well in the homepage? In this new way if someone is so nice to leave me a comment, I don't immediately understand WHICH set is referring to, WHO is that commented or liked! so it's a big NO to the Alpha, Beta and 1621 others liked your set/collection. It's just so unpersonal. We are not "1621 others". We are persons liking someone else's taste. It makes me want to do NOT like other's sets any more, because what's the point of putting a like or to comment if it is in that way? I am not looking backward, as I told, changes are good, but when a change doesn't improves but simply worsen instead, I got to tell. Me and other 1621 polyvore users dislike this new home :D

Anonymous said...

Most of the changes are pretty cool, but the recent activity is too confusing. I preferred it when it was like all the time since I'm here: You could click on the comments and see which you've got. Now you have to scroll and scroll and scroll, to make special clicks and such. It takes too much time and is so annoying. Please change that back!

Dear Polyvore,

I really like the new "colors" thing, along with the rectangle cropping. But one thing I haven't enjoyed is the new homepage. It has really confused me because, when I select it, it takes me to the set, but one showing who liked it. I can find a way to deal with it, but I would apperciate it if it were changed.

Also, if I could request something, I would ask that there is an option to send 1 message to ALL of your contacts.I would love that! Thanks for your time!

I don't like the likes/comments gathered together. its better to have each comment put alone. it makes it easier to open the liking members pages.seems everyone wants the home page changed so i guess that's another thing.
by the way can you make a circle crop like you made a rectangular one? please!it makes it easier than trying to make a right circle instead of a potato. and you said in this post: "As always, feel free to share your feedback by leaving us a comment here!" but you don't allow everyone to comment by making comment moderation :S

Hi Polyvore! I been a member for a year and seen all the changes but this one is kind of confusing. I like the stats chart but the list under it sends me to a link I don't want to go to. Sorry. I am not liking the new changes.

Great change with the cropping tool, but the recent activities is a bit confusing. I also don't understand why out homepages shows the amount of templates we've used but not general contest wins?! its quite odd.
by the way, is the title supposed to be a "Wicked" reference or is it just a coincidence?

I HATE the new Homepage!! Everything looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too crammed!! -_______________________-

imjustme11 said...

I love everything... except the new homepage/newsfeed. I get how it's supposed to be more organized, but I really don't like how when I click on the set when it says, so and so and 32 others like your set, and it goes right to 'People Who Like This' and I can't see the comments. it should just go to the set. and I think it was better the old way and much easier. and since all of the likes are shown on one thing, at the very bottom whoever liked or comment was hours ago and makes it seem like Polyvore is slow or like no one is on. Do you get what I'm saying? lol sorry if it didn't make sense, but I think a lot of members would prefer the old news feed.

Anonymous said...

The big issue for me with the new homepage interface is that it makes it HARDER to reciprocate likes. I always check out who's liked my sets to find other polyvore users with the same tastes to add as contacts. The new activity feed makes that much more difficult. "JCP, Jilbert, and 327 others..." Huh? Who are the 327 others? To find out, I have to go to the set and return the likes from there. This is MUCH too time-consuming for PV users who get a lot of likes, and makes Polyvore needlessly cumbersome. The old design was elegant and easy. This change was NOT necessary... please, please, please change it back!

andi said...

mmkay, no normally i really don't like many of the changes but im kinda starting to like this one. im sure the my hompage thing will blowover soon, we just have to get used to it, the dust will settle, but i really like the color blocks and the cropping thing, so cool thanks!

Alice said...

The colour blocks are great, but when you resize them, when you use the corner tabs, the ratio should stay the same, so you can keep it as a square but have it smaller.

Kat_thebat said...

Polyvore, thanks for the color block tool, that is so awesome! However, I really don't like the way my homepage looks anymore. It makes it really hard to see who faved your set, and makes it even harder to fave people back :( It's very confusing! I usually love all your changes, but if I can't fave my poly friends sets than I can't see how that can be good :(

I LOVE THE CHANGES YOUVE MADE. Although another great idea you guys can do are, when i make a collection and publish it i'd like to know what people feel about the collection I created. I like to see some kind of comment bar on the bottom, just like when we publish a set, we see a persons comments. This is just another great idea I want to see in Poly. Great job!!!! You guys are the best.

Hi Polyvore. I have a suggestion that would make me most happy. Can The colors {The colors tab} be cropped? Like, when I use the black color square, why can't I crop it so I can make a shape to background a picture?

Anonymous said...

PLEASE change Poly back to how it was! The speech bubble method of showing each single person who liked and commented on my sets was so much easier to use! Returning faves now is 100 times harder than it has to be,and I 'm sure I will miss returning faves to some because of this! Please reconsider this most unwelcome change!

I'm so glad you guys updated the 'All Items' symbols. It looks much more classy now that they all match :)

Okay... I love everything but the homepage change. It's harder to return favs with the {insert name here}, and 27 others liked your set. It's also harder for me to add people as contacts because of that same reason. I don't like the new feed. Everything else is gorgeous and shiny, so don't change that if you can help it x3

Hi Polyvore. I do not usually have aproblem with the changes. In fact I LOVE the rectangle cropping feature. Its so much easier seeing as I am a perfectionist when it comes to straight lines on my sets!! The color blocking is also very cool. While it is nice to know how many people are favoriting my sets I would like to see who. So when I return my favorites it is easier.
I saw it in an earlier comment and wanted to agree. If there was a way to add all the contacts thast have added you instead of going one by one.
Keep up the great work Poly!!

I love all the new crop changes and the sort of changes that help us edit the sets.. but the changes to the recent activity and views of other peoples sets are making it very hard to like your friends sets and leave them comments.. Seeing as polyvore is very much a community based site I think it should not be such a effort to keep up to date with 'likes' and comments, which im sorry but the current recent activity layout is doing... But I love polyvore and thanks for everything else.

Lyudmyla said...

I am maybe the only one but I like all the changes. :) The rectangular cropping tool and the color block tools and options are just a brilliant addition. I actually like changes in the activity feed back, it summarizes a long list of things into a smaller one which is easier and more concise.

starla sangue said...

The color block tool change is great! So is the rectangular cropping tool -
but the My Home changes aren't as cool...as a lot of other members, I liked the previous one alot more. It was a lot easier to overview. And I still consider it very annoying that one does get notified when a member comments on one's set, but there's no notification when someone comments on a comment itself - I mean it would be really cool to be notificated about every answer one gets.
I absolutely agree with the second commentator on this blog entry, Alexandra: Comments are more important than likes!
You surely know deviantART? Well the comment-answer-etc. thing there is best. One gets notified if someone comments on one's work, AND one gets notified if someone posts an answer to a comment one made to another person's work. (I hope my explanation is clear) - I hate the fact that I have to check back on sets of my contacts to know whether they answered on my comments.
I hope you read and consider my comment.
I love your page, and I'd love you even more if you'd make the site easier to overview.
Best wishes!

I love the rectangular crops and color blocks, but I hate the My Home stats! It's boring and confusing and makes me think of math. When I go on polyvore I want to be able to see who liked which of my sets and click on their icon so I can fave them back. I also don't like how on profiles, more sets keep on loading instead of making it several pages. It makes it annoying because every time it loads more sets, it skips to the bottom and I miss a bunch of sets. PLEASE change those two things back.

Hello Polyvore,
Thank you for all the work you have done on polyvore. This is really one of my favorite websites, and I spend much of my free time on here. I love most of the changes you made, but the new like/comments feed is a bit hard to use. It is much easier to use the old way than this way. If you could change it back, that would be wonderful! I know that my opinion isn't the only one that matters, but looking at the other comments it seems others agree with me.
Thanks again,
Anii :)
This website really is always and thanks for always trying to make it better.

I hate it! Now I don't even press the Polyvore button on my bookmarks toolbar because I know I can't view my comments and my recent activity. I would absolutely love it if you changed it back, but that's just me. I don't mind the color block tool and the rectangular crops. But the activity change is killing me. Thank you!

Magellan said...

i'm with everyone else here, the new activity summary is not working. It was much more effective before. People just want a fast and easy way to return the love to everyone who is loving their sets. It's too difficult and confusing now to see who is liking what and commenting on what. If it takes more than a minute, then trust me, people will stop doing it. And that means less returning of "likes", etc and then getting less in return. If it's not broken, don't fix it. It was great before.

The homepage changes are, frankly, annoying. I don't want to know how many people commented, I want to know who commented and what they said. I don't want to know how many people faved, (I really couldn't care less) I want to know who faved and what they faved. This is unoriginal and wayyy too much like Facebook. That's why I loved Polyvore; because it was original and so unlike Facebook. Polyvore Staff, we all really appreciate the work you put into making Polyvore a better place, but please, change the homepage back. It's disorienting and frustrating.
