Upgraded Messaging Interface (UPDATED)

UPDATE 3: We're working on a few more changes in response to your feedback  We're bringing back the in-line reply (instead of a popup), making Unread Messages the default tab, and adding "Mark all as read".  Thanks for your patience!

UPDATE 2: We made some changes so it's easier to reply and find archived messages. Hope that fixes things for everyone.  Let us know if that's better, thanks!

UPDATE 1: Thanks for all of your feedback. We're working on fixing some of the issues you've pointed out and hope to have them updated later tonight or tomorrow morning. Thanks for your patience! :-)

Today we upgraded Polyvore's messaging interface. The new look is simpler, cleaner and more streamlined. We think this makes it much easier to browse your messages.

Here are some tips to help you navigate the upgrades:
  • To reply to a message in your mailbox, just click "Reply" on the right side of the message
  • To view a full conversation, click on the from line of the message

New

Old 

Hope you like the new look! Let us know what you think by leaving a comment here on the blog.

how do you reply?!?!?!

Anonymous said...

ehh i don't like it very much. before it was easy to just click 'reply' but now we have to load a whole new page which i find kinda annoying.

Anonymous said...

I honestly don't like it Polyvore. All these changes are driving me crazy. I loved the new editing tab and the tagging system but everything else is just blech. Can you please change the messenger back? I miss the old polyvore ):

This is crap.

Oliviacarterfamily said...

to be honest, i hate it. there is no archive, the messages are added oddly. It's just not good. yeah, it may look nice but it's way too different and not what most people would like..

It would be much better if we could reply right on the page and not have to wait for it to load!

I hate it. Change it back -_____-

This fucking sucks! Almost everything does. I've been on this site from the start. Some things are nice like tagging and cropping but this is stupid. Its also really stupid you have to have your username the way it was and that you can only change it once before its permanent. Hate this.

Jacelyn said...

It's awful. I relied on my archives, now they are gone. The changes are just getting so stupid. Sort it out, we are getting fed up.

Look way neater but of course AS USUAL its still more complicated. Stop trying to make polyvore "better" we liked it how it was....5 CHANGES AGO!

PUT THE OLD ONE BACK. this one is hopeless! and i usually support the majority of the changes!

I hate it!!!!

BethanyJBFan said...

I agree with Oliviacarterfamily - if we want to read back to old messages, we can't and if in 'all messaages', you can't tell if the latest message is from you or them! Change it back - the last message interface was so much easier to use and understand!

Anonymous said...

Its not easier! It's more difficult! How to i respond to 10 people at once?!? go back and forth a million times?! And i can't go back and view the old stuff we talked about! That sucks!

Please stop fixing things that aren't broken!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Why can i no longer see old messages? Its annoying not being able to see anymore than 10 messages! Ive nothing wrong with the rest of it, but i wish i could see the archived messages!! Also, it would be nice if there was another tab with group requests!

Deidra said...

I don't like it at /all/ Now, there's no archive, which is annoying, so you can't look back and see further into the conversation. You can only see 10 whole things of a conversation, it's ridiculous. All of these changes honestly, aren't improving, it's like once we finally get used to something, it changes. The mailbox was the only simple thing, now it's difficult to reply and the messages are arranged oddly. Not the best choice, Polyvore crew.

Maci said...

It doesn't matter what we say guys, they aren't going to listen. They never do. I've gone through all the comments on all their old blogs on all the changes and ninety percent of them are negitave. They don't care what their users think, they just want it to look more proferssional and they don't care if we hate it. But yes this new messaging system is dumb.

Parker said...

I think this one isn't as good as the old one. It's cleaner, probably more efficient but I think I speak for others when I say it was easier just clicking reply, and the layout was just a little more straight forward...

Anonymous said...

I like how it's easier to read, but you can't post more than 1024 characters when before we could write freely without any restriction :S

I don't like this at all. I can't reply, view my conversation. I am so tired of changes. please stop. messaging is the main reason y I am staying on polyvore. I am thinking of leaving because of this

This is so stupid! You can't see any old messages.

You also can't go to peoples pages without seeing your conversation first! thats annoying, why should we have to see our conversation before clicking onto seeing there page?!

Anonymous said...

With every single new update, you always say that it's simpler and cleaner. In my opinion it always looks horrible and like some kind of little kid website. Not to mention instead of making things easier you're just making it harder. I hate this new update. No archives, you can't even freaking reply. Change it back. If I didn't have so many friends on polyvore I would definitely be gone by now. Everyone hates the new updates.

phoebe said...

I cant believe this!! i still cant figure out the reply thing and how to mark all messages as read...grrr why polyvore?? youve already changed so much now this? if only:(

jillian said...

This layout is awful, I like to browse my archives. Go back to the old layout because this is beyond confusing and frustrating. I don't have the patience to adjust to another new set up, especially one that sucks.

Carly said...

not only did I find it harder to reply this way, and ran into some trouble in messages that I was sending that were long, but a lot of the letters were messed up and not showing up! There seems to be a lot of problems, and whether or not that's because of the change or it's part of it, i'm not happy with the change currently.

vikkirose said...

Needs a reply button, starting a new message each time is a hassle.

Anonymous said...

Do you want to now my true opinion on this bullshit? Let me tell you what I think. This new messaging interface is absolutely NON-FUNCTIONAL! I have met some of my closest friends on polyvore and I speak to them multiple times a day and it's not just one friends, it's upwards of 10! And you idiots are telling me that to message each of these people I have to open a new page?! You're out of your damn mind. I come on to polyvore to talk to my friends and to exercise my creative writing skills. You guys have absolutely RUINED messaging with this new interface and whose ever smart idea this was should be fired IMMEDIATELY. The thing I use the most is messaging and now you guys have officially messed it up. Having no archives is bad enough, but now we have to click on each person to reply back and the messages from bottom to top. By the looks of it I am not the only with these opinions. Congrats polyvore, it's ironic that on your 5th birthday you've managed to piss a lot of people off and I won't be surprised if people leave because of this.
Congratulations! -.-

You know what people of polyvore, the people who create this site and update it with all this bullshit, don't give a flying f*ck about us and our opinions, because you know what they are going to say?
Right now, it's just such a big change, but soon enough you guys will be used to it.
F*ck you polyvore.
You don't give a damn about your users, you just care about looking more professional, not about the functionality of this website.

Anonymous said...

Actually, I rather hate it. How do you post a reply or access your archives? I have messages with addresses for email and phone numbers that I hate to lose. The old system actually was pretty good on messages - not sure it needed tweeking. Now working on colour coding items in our inventory, adding collections to our items so we can access items IN collections easily, linking tags with collections etc - that would be useful.

Change it back Polyvore. It's horrible. Think about the Anons on here right?
So, they use messaging alot, and Im a non-anon who talks to alot of these anons. They don't give two fucks about sets. Theyre constantly messaging people!! Are you telling me that I Have to reply to 75+ messages in all separate tabs? This new message system can go to hell. -.-

Anonymous said...

JUST KEEP THE 'ARCHIVE'BUTTON! PLEASE.

Ducktape said...

The design is fine. I don't see anything to get worked up about, it's not like it's drastically changed. But the reply option on the unread message before was entirely convient, and would keep with your idea os making things efficient and streamlined if it was brought back.

Anonymous said...

I don't want to have to load a new page to reply. You added comment/like features right under sets in the stream. Why not keep that same simplicity with the messenger? Forget about a streamlined look!

I Really Don't Like This PLEASE Change It Back :/ I Agree Just STOP Making Changes I LOVED The way it was before ... Please Just :/ Change it back ... I Might Leave Polyvore if this doesn't change .

athousandshadesofblue said...

Not that you guys will ever get off your high and mighty horse and actually listen to your members {although you claim that you do. don't worry, we all know the truth.}, but I really don't like this new layout. The old messages are key - don't think just changing that is going to appease any of us. I've looked at the comments {probably unlike you}, and no one is happy with this. Your so-called streamlining is making something out of nothing. Who complained about the messages? NO ONE! Please stop fixing what wasn't broken and actually listening to our requests.

Anonymous said...

Not only is there the issue with the reply button, the no archives, the backwards list of messages but ALSO this 1024 character limit.
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?! I come onto poly to write creative stories and make sets that go a long with them. I also write and collaborate with other users. You are inhibiting my ability to do this polyvore!!! I can't even look back at messages to see what people have sent me and other things!
I might as well move to fictionpress and actually talk to my friends on other messengers.
You are literally adding reasons as to why people should quit polyvore and never look back.
You must be so proud of yourself. -.-

This IS NOT simple. It's just more complicated. I really hate it, please change it back. The older version WAS simple and we didn't have to wait for another page to load. I honestly hate it, Polyvore. All these 'upgrades' are driving me crazy. I loved the new editing tab and the tagging system but everything else is just too much and ruins the site. Can you please change the messenger and groups back? I miss the old polyvore ):

Randi said...

WTF?! Where did my message archive go? I do not like this at all. Please change it back. I want to be able to reply to all my messages on the same place and be able to see more than just ten replies. Also a limit on characters?! No bueno.
Again... Please change back.

cj-awesomesauce said...

I can't stand it! I like so many other people relied on my archives, especially if I was having a conversation with people about stuff. This is more hassle than it was before. it wa sso easy to see you had a message, hit reply and bam, it's good to go. Like they said...you can't tell if it's from you or to you. We've all lost our archives, it's difficult. I really wish before Polyvore went and made these "Changes" they would confer with their users. Everyone on Polyvore, obviously loves it, but it feels like Polyvore doesn't care about their users. They do what they want, make these changes to things that aren't broken...and expect us to be excited about it. While yes some of the changes you have made recently, honestly do rock, but this is one of the worst changes...I'd say change it back, but I have lost faith that Polyvore actually listens to it's users!!! One more reason to reconsider staying on Polyvore. Sad but true.

Anonymous said...

I'm not going to even protest to this, because with you guys it's absolutely useless. You don't listen, you guys don't care. You just do what you think is best.

andi said...

Worst thing you've done to this website, EVER. It's for sure not more simple. The last one was easier, you could just click reply. If you wanted to see more messages you had the option to do so, but it was all right there, and made it quick and easy. DO YOU WANT US TO STOP TALKING TO ONE ANOTHER? Because that is what is going to happen. Plus a lot of people will be complaining with loading problems, because incase you haven't noticed, loading isn't peachy perfect on every computer, its long and a hassle to a lot of people. We don't want to load a whole new page to just say 'hi' or something.
But of course you guys are most likely just going to scan this and not give a care like always and continue your tests, treating us like guinea pigs - forced to suffer and not be heard.

Cami Prosise said...

Why would you limit our characters? This is supposed to be a site for expression. Some people like to actually have a conversation instead of being limited. It's rediculous

Anonymous said...

why would you change it? IT WAS SIMPLY now its all fudged up. Its to complicated. you have to go to a WHOLE NEW PAGE to reply! and u can't just delet one message but the whole thread! ITS NOT GOOD! Can't you ask us what we want before you go changing everything. These changes are just getting worse I swear... ):

I'm finding it inconvenient to have to load an extra page to reply, but I do like the style of the "Send message" button, I suppose.

Anonymous said...

i have slow internet connection and I don't sometimes and I don't like how I have to wait for another page to load just to reply. it slightly bugs me. I mean it looks nice, but the other way was more convenient for me. I also miss where we could look and view are old conversations.

weregonnabeokay said...

THIS SUCKS i read my archives all the time. ive been here for four years, and this is by far the worst change youve made. im actually really mad and upset. like, if you ever change it back will i get my archives back? cause im pissed about that. stop changing it to try and make it modern. people like it the way it is.

Anonymous said...

Okay, it's pretty blatant that nobody likes this and Polyvore is going to lose tones of members because of this. I think this is one of the worst ideas you have ever had, EVER. seriously, I want to be able to just press reply and be done with it, my laptop and iPod are slow and I have more than one message to reply to! Also, it's hard to tell if you sent the message or if I was sentto you. It's not clean and simple its utterly ridiculous and for you information I fucking adored my archives; I have so many things I would rather not lose that are in my archives.
But you won't listen, you never do.
I might leave soon.

im honestly crying. i had messages on there from people i havent talked to in THREE YEARS. people that meant a whole lot to me. now i have ten snippits of half a conversation that didnt even matter.

cj-awesomesauce said...

I rarely post a second time on things like this, but I feel I need to. I see everyone saying change it back...or just get use to it, that we will have no choice but to accept it. But we shouldn't have to. I know this is going out on a limb, but Polyvore claims to want our feedback...and we all know that Polyvore notoriously doesn't listen. We know they are going to keep it this way regardless of what the feedback is. The messaging interface is a joke...it complicates something that wasn't complicated in the first place. I see that people are leaving over this...and Polyvore should be taking note of the fact that something like this is causing people to leave. Not because of the change...but because Polyvore doesn't listen...they don't ask to see what problems are...or even beta test on a certain group to see how they like it. They just do it regardless, and that's the end of it. I say, we as upset users respond in the best way possible...a blackout on the website. I know it would be difficult...this is a place to express yourselves, but the site and the people running it are making it more difficult to do just that. So talk to you friends on the site and do a blackout...refuse to log on and if enough people leave...and stop visiting the site and making sets for a period of time...MAYBE then Polyvore will get that point. That if they want our feedback and opinions...they actually have to listen to us and acknowledge our complaints!

MyNirvana said...

I agree with cj-awesomesauce , definitely. Polyvore can make big bucks by how many times its advertisements are viewed, and they're everywhere almost on the site. If we blacked out for even three days to a week, the impact would be significant, I think. I don't like this change at all, and I'm sick of changes while the 50 item limit is still in place and we've been complaining about that for YEARS, and yet I've never heard a complaint about the messaging system. Ever. Screwed up Polyvore? Just a little.

I have to agree with many of the comments. While it DOES "look" better/cleaner, the old format was more functional.

Hate it. I RP with a bunch of different girls and it sucks because i can't go back in the archives and review what I've written with someone. Please change it back, or at least give us an archives button!!

the-wild-things said...

Streamline isn't always best, Polyvore. There are a few flaws with this design.
1) I used to click peoples username to visit their sites. Now it takes an extra step for me to do so, which doesn't seem very user friendly.
2) The view conversation button is a must! Browsing through all my messages is a pain. I used that button so much to refer back to conversations. If I could request one thing back, it would be this.
3) Block user. I dont remember if I have actually blocked anyone before but people do on here and if someone is being rude then it should be a simple click to block them.
4) I dont really like that it takes me to a whole new screen when I reply. If people have slow internet service, I imagine it is a pain for them. I personally like to reply to a bunch of messages at once instead of having to go back and forth.

I understand why you did the change but I use polyvore almost every day and for a frequent user there are disadvantages to this. I really wish polyvore would improve things that actually need fixed or focus most of the energy on enhancing the editor since the site is all about sets. I really do hope you will at least give us the view conversation button back.

I honestly don't think the new system is that bad. But if I could make one suggest... Would it be possible to make a little message icon on the top of every page, next to the "Activity" tab, with a little red number that pops out to indicate the number of new messages you have (kinda like on Tumblr).

Oh polyvore
I like the classy ness of it and that the messages are separated clearer

But it just won`t do.

You`re trying to make it easier, but it's only making it harder. It's harder to block and delete messages.
When you click reply, a little box pops up that usually only pops up for new messages
and it's hard to read.

And when you reply to a message, YOUR message now IN the unread messages.

It's harder to see archives, and the old conversation is confusing it to read.

It drives me crazy that you make these changes, ask for our opinion, and then don't listen.

Most of us want it back, but you guys don't change it back.

We've lost so many amazing members because of this, and alot of them were my friends.
It's kind of stressful because now I have no contact with them, and they left because polyvore wouldn't stop changing.

I love that you're wanting to be innovative and improve polyvore, and trying to make it the best for our members,
but this message system is just not doing so hot.

I've given up on replying and reading my messages (i have 23 by the way)

Because it's too damn hard, cluttered and confusing.
It's harder to find things, like delete, block, mark all as unread.
It's just gone.

And its just not.
'sdhfaslkd
no ;_;
just no ;~;

I know you won't change it back ._.
But I think that you should at least sort somethings out and make it more lkike the old version ._.

Also, the new group layout sucks.


BUT
I like that you can find like groups, and collections, and stuff
under your name
it makes it so much easier to go find stuff.
thats cool ^^

I honesly hate this new messaging setup I dont know why you changed it when the old one was just fine. I really want the old one back because it was much simpler and cleaner. Like now you have to clock on a whole other page to reply and click on something else to make the number by the messages go away.
Before all you had to do was clock reply and that was it I really want it back to the old way.

Why are all of the messages i sent showing up in unread messages? -.-

POSH Powell said...

I do not like the message changes, nor do I like the changes made to groups. Changes are made too often to this site. Before changes are made permanent member should be allowed to do surveys on whether or not they like the changes. Those who do not like what is being changed should be able to decline use of the new changes.

I hate it. It sucks. Change it back.

I don't like it, it's awkward and you can't see the whole message you're trying to reply to and just is all over awkward. It doesn't look better and it defiantly doesn't work better no matter how you try to fix it, although the floating reply window and the automatic all instead of unread are the most problematic fature

Anonymous said...

When I try and reply by clicking reply instead of into the message it doesn't send. In the inbox it sends the message but my unread messages stay the same number and my contacts don't get it.

The new layout/system is awful but if you INSIST on it without listening to us then at least do us the courtesy of making sure it WORKS!

Anonymous said...

so I open the messages and they still showing like they are unread messages.I can read all message only if I open them in activity page,is that stupid or what? what if I want to leave it for later on to read that?need to back who now how much pages on activity just to find that link...really bad thing to do.
looks nice on first look,but nothing to do with that,to me they are just useless now.
or.....
how can I reply to group invite if I don't want to be member right away,maybe after a weak,maybe not at all,those messages I can't even open they are always like unread messages.
so stupid I don't like it at all,so much things missing here.
it's not because it's new,because some changes you made are great and better but this one it's not.

Anonymous said...

well you can hope as much as you want,but we don't like it!!!!

sillylittlegleek said...

i much preferred the old layout because of the quick reply. please put that back in instead of having the 'send a message' popup whenever you click reply. it was helpful being able to see the message in full that you were replying to in your inbox, but also see others.

Anonymous said...

It looks odd.
The old messaging was perfectly fine and didn't need any improvement.
What is this?
I like to look at the message I've received so I can look back at it as I reply, now I can't do that, not to mention it looks messy, very messy.

dee. said...

Le sigh.I can't use this new messenger. I can't. It's too annoying, you have ruined messaging. I mean, having a character limit? I know people don't generally write long ass messages, but I do! I primarily use Polyvore for writing, nowadays, I've given up on hanging out around here for fashion sets like twenty changes ago. And it bugs me that you guys introduced a character limit in messages and in set descriptions. We need to cut our stories in half now, 'cause they don't fit into one single set. I need to make TWO sets for ONE story, how is that more efficient, huh? I am not amused, Polyvore. If it weren't for exercising my writing with the beautiful people on here, I would've left a long time ago. And just so you know, this is the general opinion; no one sticks around for YOU and your site anymore, people are still here for the other members. Suck on that.

Lisa R said...

Sorry, have to say I don't like it. It was perfectly simple before with the 'reply' and 'view conversation' buttons, I can't see any benefit to this change especially if as others have said there is now a limit on characters as well! I don't even know if the reply I just sent has gone as it's not showing in the conversation. Would much rather it be changed back to how it was please.

Anonymous said...

Stop changing the website. It was a thousand times better the OLD way. But now you're changing everything. Give me old mailbox back, this mailbox is way too confusing and I HATE this one.

Okay so on my mobile phone I clicked 'Archives' thinking I could go to my full conversation with someone...now I can't even find one of my most important conversations! What the hell is this!?? I don't like the new layout since it screws up on my phone! I love being able to read all the messages but how can I now!? When I clicked archives it popped up one of those little yellow notifications but I couldn't read it since it just blinked!

NOT better at all!

msbeautifulbrixoxo said...

Okay , I can honestly say; I HATE this! I got used to the layout but the messages? No. You guys need to stop! This is going to far! I can't see what the person sent in the archives! Nooo , I don't want you to fix it, I want you to CHANGE it BACK. Please don't tell us, "It's a big change, but you guys will get used to it." no because Im not putting up with have to be complicated with this. I'll just leave polyvore. I hate this when I joined a year ago. It was amazing. Now? Well its crap. You guys are trying to drag the attention Tumblers, Facebookers. Just leave it alone! Gosh!! You guys are POLYVORE.

Oh my gosh. No. Hate hate hate change it back or I leave! I'll just give my good friends my email, where it can see all the messages & it functions, then I'm done -.-

I lost all my conversations. With one of my closest friends who live like 837299 states from me. She helped me through a lot and now it's all gone. I'm crying. We've shared so many memories and chats and the funniest moments and now thanks to you? They're gone! I hate you!
My tears are flowing.
good job, polyvore. not.
not only did I lose all my conversations but this piece of crap doesn't work right, it's backwards..
You know what? I'm leaving. This is bs. I'm sick of you making this site "better" . If you are actually reading this.. You guys are out of your minds.

Anonymous said...

we all get that poly needs to change to improve but honestly? this doesn't work. it's not functional, not easy and just a big no. changes are good but not for the worse. we're not asking much, just make this whole message thing as it was or at least change it again taking in consideration all the opinions we wrote here. polyvore is made by polyvorians, not just by its design, we have a voice and you should listen to it. thank you.

KateOlive said...

I always like your changes, but this one makes me weary. Have mercy, PV! I'd much rather be able to sort in my closets...by color, for example.

KateOlive said...

I DO Not like the reply box covering up the message you are replying to.

Anonymous said...

Okay. I cannot say that I have been here from the start, but I can say that I have been here. And that means that I have seen the good and...well, bad changes. This happens to be one of the bad ones.
But, sadly, like usual your love for the "new, easier to use" design will make it stay...like most other changes you made that we (as a majority) do not like.
But whatever.
You will probably keep going until we are all fed up...and you do not have much longer until that happens.

Where is 'mark all as read'???
Because I normally don't reply to mail about contest wins or group invites....? There are so many mails, and I just want to skip them, or go through them without answering!! But then I still have a number of 'unread' messages!! Where's the feature, I hope it's not withdrawn? Thank you in advance! Please, no more changes!

Anonymous said...

I even don't know how to tag messages as all read. please gimme the mark all as read button

xrissa said...

I don't like at all the upgrade of the mail box. For me, previously was better. Now it's messy. All the messages appear at once and after replying in a pm you still have the mark as 1 message and it's your own answer. Please, change it back or make a n option to leave to each member how wants its mailbox to be. You should have change it to previous apperance option. and pleeeeease, stop making changes without asking! Polyvore is loosing its character with all those changes and is becoming another social network. It has started to loose its uniqueness.
Thanks for giving us the chance to say at least our opinion to that.

I really like the change. Thank you!

me. said...

I personally have no problem with the new messaging interface. I'd like to say to everyone that like the changes that it isn't necessary to be calling people out. Polyvore asked them to voice their opinions..

I haven't been a user of Polyvore for that long so I don't know if Polyvore has a beta site to try this out on. It just seems unprofessional to be experimenting on the live version. People have already become accustomed to the previous one so unless it truly is better then the change shouldn't be made. What seems to have happened is that instead of fixing the problems, they've created a completely different layout full of them. You have to click so many times and go through multiple pages just to do the simplest of things. It's far more complicated and time consuming than it should be. Those extra clicks and pages should be eliminated. Does Polyvore ask user's what they want beforehand or is this just guesswork? Like I said I haven't been a member for very long but I think it'd be beneficial for everyone if Polyvore at least gave members the option to switch back to the previous one after they've tried it out. I don't know if this is an option already but there are a few people who are for this and a lot that aren't so that seems like that would be the most reasonable thing to do. If it isn't an option yet than it should be. I just hope that if it is or when it's put in place that the option is not there for a "limited time" only.

Sonya said...

Girls, girls, girls! You must learn to adjust to change and not just shoot down every idea Polyvore tries to put out. I'm pretty sure they're not doing it just to spite us. I actually love the simpler way of the new messaging. Please keep it, Polyvore.

As much as I think that you keep try to make it more awesome and as you say "easier", every single time, you make it harder. I know I'm not the only one when I say that the inbox looks more confusing now. For one, I can barely tell which messages I'd answered and to which I haven'. Because they're all on the same page. and they haven't been on the same page/window/whatever since this site was created - i believe. My point is, you can keep the new updates and whatever... Just don't mix new messages with old, replied to messages. All I'm asking.

i don't like the new messaging - its confusing and i personally thought there was nothing wrong with the old way and to be honest it was a lot easier and clearer.

HayleyRose said...

I really don't like the 'new' way. Once I have read a message and I don't need to reply the message still comes up as unread. If you could correct this fault, I would get onboard with it.

I hate it. There is no archive and you have to re-load a page to send a message. Its a horrible new change and I hate it, as do alot of the other users. Please change it back? ):

There is an awful problem with this update right now, If i reply on the 'all messages' page it still says i have a message in my inbox. Also if i click on the conversation i can't see the last message which was sent, either to or from me! this is frustrating polyvore! If you fix this, plus make it so i can go to somebodys page without seeing our conversation, this would be perfect!

justindrewbiebs-anon said...

I hate it! And I'm not the only one who hates it, obviously. :( Please change it back. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

I HATE THIS! I have almost ceased going on polyvore due to all the changes that have been made, I used to go on and make sets but I haven't in months because of all the changes. Lately all I do is send messages to my friends on here and was pleased that that was one of the few things that hadn't been changed! PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK! There is no need to fix what was never broken. It was so much easier to navigate before and made more sense. Older messages of a conversation at the top going down not the bottom. When you read, you read from left to right, top to bottom not bottom to top. Please change it back or I will consider no longer using a website I used to enjoy but now I am not so sure.

I don't like it at ALL! Please change it back to the old one..I don't get how to use it and I can't pm my friends because it dosn't work. Please fix it thanks.

Thank you OH SO MUCH for this change. Yet another thing that I cannot use on Polyvore now because it isn't compatable with my internet system. I have pretty well given up on the site and I was only sticking around to talk with my friends that were able to PM me. Now I can't even do that. CHANGE IT BACK PLEASE!

Anonymous said...

I hate it. It makes it harder to reply and it takes a whole lot longer to reply to friends now. I seriously don't like it. Change it back

duckiesinarow said...

Messaging was the one thing I prayed Polyvore wouldn't change. One major reason I use poly is to roleplay over messaging, and now it sucks. Everything on poly is changing for the worse and its obvious from the comments that nobody likes it but you don't do anything about it! you probably won't even read this but I think you should know that polyvore was perfect before you changed it. Just put everything back to the way it used to be and it will keep people happy!

More specifically, the problem for me with the messaging is that yes, you can see the "full message" when you click the from line, but that doesn't even show you the most recent message! It only shows you the ones before that! Please at least fix this problem.

Anonymous said...

I don't like it -- I hate it. Could you just change back to the old messenger? Please? Plus, whenever I send a message, it comes back to me. So, I have ten messages, I reply, then I have ten again from myself. See how retarded that is. And 'update' means to make better. You surely didn't do that.

WE WANT THE OLD MESSAGES BACK!!! do you know how many times i've sent the wrong message to someone because this new "simpler" way, it's NOT simple, it's confusing and annoying

The "new" polyvore is HORRIBLE. -.- its just like facebook , trying to make changes every month to be "better" but honestly its making everything worse . I personally get on polyvore on my phone and my laptop and either way it sucks. The old way was much more simpler than what you have produced now. It's a pain in the neck and it makes me not want to get on polyvore anymore. Please change it back! The majority if not all of us dislike it , and I haven't seen anyone who says they like it but if there is that one crazy person out there I'm sure they won't mind the old one because this one is just completely terrible.

please change it back because when my friend sent me 2 messages it only showed 1 and when I replied it didn't even show my message I sent....CHANGE IT!

angrymessenger said...

now the messages are messing up?
it hasn't sent at least 3 of my messages so far.
i liked it better the old way, when it didnt send things twice or not send them at all.

Anonymous said...

I actually like it! It took me a few minutes to go through and figure out how everything went but it's way easier. It's fast and simple. I also think that polyvore should have a chat feature so you can chat with people. there should be an option to turn it off for people who don't want to use it, but I personally think it would be way easier to connect with other fashionistas. Have a lovely day!!

what a dysfunctional group y'all must be to initiate, yet again, another major change towards the past. U have a good thing and are busy destroying it. such a pity....

the-wild-things said...

I actually think the second update made it worse. I am not a fan of it taking me directly to all the messages. I like seeing my unread ones first. It feels very stretched out with the reply and delete so far away from who sent it and I don't find the distance between them appealing. Also I still don't see a way to view previous conversations besides going through all of my messages. The 2nd update was an improvement functionality wise but visually, I don't think it is working. Thank you for trying to update it though. It is very much appreciated.

Anonymous said...

I find this really aggrivating... I didn't care mush about the other changes to the site because I thought they were pretty cool, but seriously. The messaging was way easier to understand and use before Polyvore had to go and change it. I hate how you can't see who sent the last message when you go to 'All Messages'. And the re-loading of the page is sort of dumb, too.

i cant make no new set or blog or put pic for my story i hate it :(

sillylittlegleek said...

please fix this - i have a major problem. when i'm in the inbox i can see a message, but once i click on the conversation i can only see the messages prior, NOT the current one.
also please make it more clear which are 'to' and which are 'from', because at a glance they look exactly the same.
