Dear Polyvore community,
We’re so sorry about last night’s misfire. Due to a caching bug, we accidentally turned on every single experimental feature that we’ve been working on for the past few months. The result was a confusing mishmash of features, including some features that we never plan to actually launch.
As we outlined in this post back in March, we are working on some larger site design changes, but our plan was always to incorporate the community’s feedback first. When we asked for Bay Area Polyvore members on Twitter and Facebook a few weeks ago, it was to find people who could come to our office for usability testing. The next step is for us to make changes based on their feedback, and then invite 100 members into a beta test. We would never have intentionally rolled out such a drastic change without running it by our community first.
We’re really upset that this upset everyone. Thanks to everyone for your patience and love.
The Polyvore Team
