Dear Polyvore community,
It’s been a busy week for us! We’ve been hard at work improving the new site design in response to your feedback. Here’s what’s new:
No more missing images. Items were disappearing from sets due to overloaded image servers. We’re really sorry this happened. This problem is now fixed. If for some reason you still see items missing from a set, try republishing your set. If that doesn’t work, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your set so we can look into it.
You can comment on sets directly from the homepage. Many people pointed out that it was inconvenient to have to click away from the homepage to the set page in order to leave comments. Now you can write comments directly from the homepage! Just click the comments link and you’ll see a comment box with the 5 most recent notes.
Fewer Top Sets in your stream. Another common complaint was that people’s homepage streams were getting flooded with too many Top Sets. So we’ve toned that down. If you’re a new member, you’ll still see a lot of Top Sets, which are designed to help you discover new content and cool people to follow. As you start to follow more people, your stream will become more personalized and eventually Top Sets will disappear. (However, you’ll always be able to get to Top Sets via a link on the right side of the homepage). Please try it out and let us know if your stream feels better.
Ability to see text sets. In response to numerous complaints about text-only sets, we started to filter text sets from people’s streams. However, if you love text sets, you can still see them by going to your Account Settings and turn on the “Everything” setting to see a fully unfiltered stream.
Thank you to everyone who shared feedback. Your comments are super important because they help us pinpoint what to fix. Please keep it coming!
We’re also sorry we didn’t get everything right on the first try. Thanks for your patience as we work through the kinks. You guys are the best :-)
