Error Code 418: Color Overload on Polyvore!



As you may have noticed, the color blocking fashion trend is rising in popularity on Polyvore. Unfortunately, the use of bright colors in sets has led to a significant load on Polyvore's pixel generation servers. The result is a huge reduction in our overall PPS (pixels per set) capabilities. With fewer pixels available in our servers, our ability to render color sets on Polyvore is currently impacted. Because color takes up 1000x more pixel bandwidth than black, white, and grey, we are only able to display black and white images on our homepage. While we work diligently to address this issue, we ask that you use only grey scale colors in your sets. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you'd like to help, we're hiring smart people to solve our pixel problem and would love to hear from you or your friends.

J♥KStew™ said...

Hi. I am an avid Polyvore user and would like to ask a question. Does this mean that 'Polyvore' is going to become Black and White?? Sets and all?? Please say this isn't the case because that would be an absolute disaster!!!

Is the PPS the reason for the 50 items? If so, it makes sense then that you haven't rid of it. I don't mind it but I know that a lot of people do. I find it a nice challenge.
