Personal domains are here!
Thanks to all of you who submitted your user name selections over the last couple of weeks. We're excited to announce that personal domains are now live. For those of you who did not get a chance to choose a name, we've assigned one for you. But don't worry, you each have an opportunity to change your user name once -- so choose wisely because it is permanent! Please also remember that your user name and domain name are the same.
Tag your friends in set descriptions and comments using @!
Now that each of you has a unique user name, we've also launched our new tagging feature! We've come across many of your birthday dedication sets and tag challenges, so we're really excited about this feature. With tagging, you can mention other Polyvore users in your set descriptions, comments, and Q&A and they'll be notified in their activity stream when you do. You no longer have to PM your friends to let them know you created a set for them! To tag someone, just type the '@' symbol and then enter their user name. For users that you follow, there will be an auto-complete drop down to help you easily select their name.
We hope you enjoy your personal domain and the new tagging feature! As always, feel free to let us know what you think in the comment section. If you've been online tonight, you may have noticed a few hiccups during the rollout of this new feature, like mis-assigned names or broken links. We're very sorry about that. Our team is still here in the office working late to fix it -- please be patient with us!
