Closing the Style Advice/Ask Section

UPDATE 2/1/2012: Style Advice has been closed. You can see the archives here. Thank you for contributing to our Ask section.

UPDATE 1/15/2012: We want you to know that we are listening and reading all of your comments. We care about you, the community, very much and that's why closing the Style Advice section was a hard decision for us, too. Ultimately, we decided this was the best for the whole Polyvore community. Please try to keep the Style Advice experience positive for everyone while the section is still open. Thanks again for your contribution and support.

Dear Polyvore Community,

We love that you are style gurus who generously share your tips on how to look great. You show us in your sets how to style awesome outfits, and you've showed us in the Style Advice, or Ask section.

Now it's time for us to ask you to concentrate all your amazing styling powers in your sets, comments and collections because sadly, we will be closing down the Style Advice/Ask section in January.

This has been an incredibly difficult decision. We reached it after realizing that we haven't been able to give that section of the site and its participants the attention or recognition they deserve. We've decided to spend our time really focusing on improving features that make a difference and that make Polyvore the best web and mobile experience it can be for you.

Any sets you have created for Style Advice answers will still appear on your profile, and any saved items will still appear in My Items. Your badges will also remain on your profile. However Style Advice/Ask will be phased out over the coming weeks.

  • After January 17, we will stop accepting new questions. 
  • After January 31, the Style Advice/Ask section will no longer be available on the site. 

We'd love to see your questions and expertise reach a larger audience on dedicated sites like Yahoo Answers or Quora. (If you know of another great style advice site, please let us and your fellow Polyvore members know!)

Thank you for all your generosity and creativity in providing great style advice in the Ask section over the last three years. You continue to inspire us and we’re looking forward to more of your styling tips through your sets, comments and collections!

Love,
The Polyvore Team

This is a huge mistake. Defiantly won't be using polyvore anymore.

In other words you are using us for marketing. You guys are sell outs. Let me explain, why else would you close down the asking section, which as a community bonds us together by helping other fellow members, and "focus" on our sets and collections? Polyvore couldn't be bothered to spend the time and money to keep this part of the site open because it is much to their concern to use peoples talents to be recognized by the public on the world wide web. Some people might be okay with this decision, and some people are not. In my personal opinion the asking section is where the inspiration comes from, It's like seeing people walking down the street, observing and admiring what people can create with articles of clothing. The world is a fashion show and we feed off of each other. And, in a sense, you are taking that away. Yes i am pissed as you probably have guessed and i am pissed because the asking section is pretty much why i joined. Because of the interactions i had with people who inspired me. Now, polyvore will be a boring site where you make collages. I will not be using this site any further on the count of i have no inspiration or interest in it anymore.

This is extremely disapointing to me. I loved asking for advice and recieving it. I go to a cathlioc school, so whenever we were allowed to wear clothing besides our uniform, I would automatically log on polyvore and ask for advive. I am going to be so lost every month, im actually going to have to pick my own outfit out and I wont even have inspiration from others. This section of polyvore allows eveyone to broaden their style and exchange ideas and tips. It allows us to express ourselves in a different way than "sets". We influence trends onto others and find out what the rest of the world is trending on. I am extremely disapointed and I dont plan on returning to polyvore once this section is shut down.

Now that they're taking our inspiration away- its time to join pinterest.com- they know how to keep their members inspired and not how to just abuse them for marketing.

Chloe said...

I honestly thought that polyvore would listen to us and keep the ask section. Surely they can see how much we want it...

Beatrice said...

I still don't polyvore even have a reason to close Style Advice.
Were people complaining when it was open? NO.
Are people complaining now that it's being closed? YES.
Doesn't this tell you something, Polyvore?

Suck it said...

Dear polyvore,
If you plan on shutting down style advice section because it is "taking too much of the budget" and not producing any marketing for the rest of the site. You should know this is why half of the members join and why the other half keep returning. If you were so interested in abusing us for marketing you should of thought about how this should of affected your precious marketing. Afterall, how many people are going to return after this is shut down and if so many people joined because of this section- how will new members be attracted to this site. Im positive, the percentage of income of new members will decrease drastacally. Most members on this site will be lost to leading other websites such as pinterest, instagram, stylishgal, etc.. So if your really so worried about your marketing, you might want to reconsider a little bit.
Sincerly,
Jay Fortitude

This is seriously so selfish. They are supposedly closing it for our benefit. Who here is happy?

Bianca said...

This is ridiculous. Polyvore will lose so many users over this, and even more credibility.
NOT IMPRESSED!

Pip said...

Yawn.
Polyvore was great because it had variety. Now you can make sets, or make sets or make sets, or... Oh, that's right, nothing else.
How drab.

Please, please, please keep it open!

"We want you to know that we are listening and reading all of your comments."
But we're not actually doing anything about them.

"We care about you, the community, very much and that's why closing the Style Advice section was a hard decision for us, too."
But, you know, we got over it.

"Ultimately, we decided this was the best for the whole Polyvore community."
And by Polyvore community, we mean our bank balance.

"Please try to keep the Style Advice experience positive for everyone while the section is still open."
Because we aren't bothering to.

"Thanks again for your contribution and support."
Even though we're not supporting you.

Please keep the Ask section open!

Style Advice is great! It doesn't stop people from making sets, it encourages them to, gives them ideas, and helps people find others to follow.
This is not a good decision for us or you!

Harriet said...

The sets are the reason I like Polyvore, but the Ask section is the reason I love it.
Please don't close it!

Anonymous said...

wow.. I am very desepointed in your decision, this was the reason that first brought me to polyvore and it was my favorite part about .. This section has help me so much and was the main reason for me being a user .. you've lost me too

Darleen Sy said...

What? Making sets is cool and all but the style advice section adds to the thirll of Polyvore it's one of the main reasons why I chose to stay. Plus, you taking down contests that give prizes is kind of sad. :( I probably won't visit Polyvore as much as I do anymore.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know of another website that gives style advice that I can go to instead? I need the style advice!

Anonymous said...

Bad idea in my opinion. The questions are what led me to polyvore, they were what kept me here. I love that I could search something and get get a few different ideas of inspiration, each one different than the last.
Boo polyvore. I shall no longer visit the site If this section is removed.

Abigail said...

congrats polyvore,
great decision,
you're clearly losing a lot of users by doing this.
round of applause for a huge mistake.

I am no longer gonna be a user here, I'm deleting my account today!!!!! You guys are so dumb to do this cause this is the reason why people joined polyvore. And there is no other style advise anywhere polyvore was it.

Nobody was ever: mean, hurtful or hostile.

Bye polyvore for good!!

Well, I hope after you guys lose so many of your member, you realize this was a stupid decision. This site is going to be way lamer now. Style Advice is the best part of this website, and you guys are going to lose all your best people

The style advice section was the ONLY reason I used this site. Im really upset that it is no longer up. PLEASE BRING IT BACK. Anyone know of any sites that have advice/ask sections avaible? I might as well just deleate my account. Duces Polyvore its been real.

Whatttttt! You cant do that! Thats all i come to this site for and it helps me A LOT! Ugh, if you're going to take that away just delete this site all together.

I LOVED the Polyvore ask and answer section. It was one of the main reasons I came onto Polyvore because people were actually serious on helping find styles that fit with what I was looking for. Also, I loved looking through questions and helping out at answering when I could. Now that this is closing down... An suggesting Yahoo Answers? That just doesn't compare to the section that was here.

Aria said...

Maybe I missed the point ,but it seemed sort of redundant , and this was like my favorite part of polyvore and it breaks my heart why would you do this . Polyvore is one of the big style advice sites so please don't do this . :( :( :( :(

This was my favorite part of Polyvore and was my only reason for joining. I will no longer be using my Polyvore account now that this is gone.

This is one of the silliest things you could do to this site, people come on here for style advice and now you have just shut that entirely down, i have myself help countless people and they have helped me, well.. it was good while it lasted..

Cartier Dior said...

Really? This is one of my favorite parts about Polyvore. Even though I haven't posted anything on it, I love browsing through and looking a other people's advice. This obviously isn't really a hard decision for you, since you can just get rid of it without listening to what your Polyvore MEMBERs have to say. We love the Style Advice section. Don't Take it away from us.

Anonymous said...

I really enjoyed the ask section, I will still be using polyvore but not as much as before. I loved giving advice it made me feel like a personal stylist. Polyvore, please reconsider what you have done. I don't get how its better for the polyvore community if most of polyvore users enjoyed the ask section.

Anonymous said...

As many have commented before, this is such a let down in terms of meeting user needs. shutting this section down for insufficient reasons will create negative PR towards Polyvore. you are just opening the door for users to move to your competition.

i loved the ask style question section and mainly its the reason i go to this site. so i guess im just another lost user.

I hate you polivore team. Why did u want to do this? You will never succedd in future because you are a fucking LOSER. I HATE YOU!!!!!!!1

the hungry hamster said...

This was such a unique part of Polyvore, and the one that I often raved about to others, convincing them to check out the site. There's really no other place that gives advice like this. Both askers and advisers alike benefit greatly from this forum. I hope that Polyvore will reconsider this decision, as the website just won't be the same without it. The sets are great, but they simply don't come close to the value that the Ask section provides your users.

Anonymous said...

NOOOOO! I cant believe this is really closing!! :( I LOVE using style advice. I always come here all the time! WHY IS IT CLOSING??? :(

Emily said...

Polyvore will still be a great site even without this section! You can keep designing your own outfits and making sets and collections, but just can't ask questions. If you have questions, then send private messages to a bunch of people if you really need to. Otherwise, just keep looking at other people's collections and sets and enjoy polyvore even though it will be different.

Anonymous said...

i don't understand why you guys chose to close the ask section. dumbest idea ever. no one's gonna come onto polyvore anymore. goob job polyvore, for making the stupidest mistake ever.

Anonymous said...

theres really no need to be rude about this..... although i agree COMPLETELY with the comments saying that this was a terrible idea. there will definitely be way less members.

i have given polyvore a sort of trial run post ask section (gave it a chance after y'all stopped letting us ask questions)and as much as i love my sets..... i really dont see myself keeping my account. i will probably just save the images of my sets so i can remember what i've created and then delete my account.

its super boring around the site... now i feel like im just looking at the pages of any magazine-- and shoot, if i wanted that i could go to the gas station and pick one up.

disappointed.

Anonymous said...

You do realize that Google results pointing to the Ask section drive traffic to Polyvore, right? That's how I found this site and it's the only reason I kept coming back.

vo0do0chile said...

I understand it was a hard decision, but this was almost the only reason I came here. making sets is fun for about an hour or two once or twice a year, and I usually do better shopping on individual sites, but I LOVE to ask the fashionistas here for advice. and I LOVE to give advice. I'll likely stop visitng as well.

Anonymous said...

If you gave us all one good, valid reason of why you are shutting down the ask section of Polyvore,we wouldn't be annoyed but come on! You just say: " We haven't been able to give that section of the site and its participants the attention or recognition they deserve.". Of course you did! The point of this wasn't for Polyvore itself to give recognition and attention, it was about giving that to each other in the shape of good advice for real-life fashion-related problems. I think that Polyvore will be destroyed by this terrible decision to close down the best part of it.

Anonymous said...

This sucks, this section not only help others, but i was able to use it when i had no idea what to do with outfits and even make-up. It's too bad that they are doing this. I will be on here a little less now...

No no no no no! I love the ask part of Polyvore! It gives us an opportunity to interact with other members and get/give style advice! Don't close it. There's no reason to whatsoever.

I joined Polyvore because Google kept directing me to the site's style advice, and I decided to hang around. Guess that was a mistake. I'll be taking screenshots of the style advice I like for future reference, and I already deleted my account, which is totally useless now. Fuck you very much.

I just made my polyvore to get style adivice and now its being closed when I haven't even gotten to ask a question :( I'm sorry but if there isn't any style advice anymore I will probrably stop visiting polyvore

I loved this section on polyvore- one of the main reasons i used the site. its a great way to help others out and find awesome people to follow. i am very upset that this will no longer be a part of polyvore.

Melissa Gampe said...

:( this was such a unique part of polyvore, needless to say i am deactivating my account after this post and moving to lookbook.nu instead.

Amelia said...

My bet is they're closing that section because there's no way for them to monetize it. Just about everything on the web needs to be supported by some sort of ad revenue. Too bad, I really enjoyed this advice section. It was an amazing resource for the fashion-challenged/boring dressers out there like myself.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know any other sites with this "ASK" feature that polyvore is getting rid of for no reason. It would be greatly appreciated since I WILL NOT be using this site anymore.
Thanks a lot .

Why do this to us? If you want this to be a community, then why are you ruining it by shutting down what makes us closer and more of a community. This is by far the worst thing you have done to us! Everyone loved the style section, how do we find out about great stylists now if we can't see what they recommend? Thanks for ruining polyvore, good luck making it better.

I really don't know what to do right know .I've been using the ask section for almost more that two years now ,although it wasn't the main reason why I did make my account but the fact that I became so attached to it breaks my heart .I really liked giving my point of view to people and knowing that I helped them.
For my entire life I was always the girl who no one cared about her opinion and seeing that people liked what I chose made me feel comfortable in the way I dress ,I stopped dressing up like everyone else and I started wearing the things I like.
This part of polyvore means a lot to me and other people as well so please reconsider this.

Hi Polyvore, I juast wanted to add my voice to the other people who are really dissappointed. I primarily used Polyvore for the ask section - seeing what answers were given to other peoples questions was really interesting and helpful. I'll be deleting my profile and no longer using the site.

Join the Ask Group to keep asking for and giving style advice!

Anonymous said...

It's simple really, POLYVORE doesn't make enough ad revenue from the advice column.. or so they thought.

Although people are probably less likely to adopt new trends and buy them if they don't know how to wear them, and that's what the advice section did.

One might even browse the advice section, see something they wouldn't have considered buying on their own, and be inspired to try something new.

So to the accountant and account managers at polyvore, think about this in terms of revenue, and think about a re-launched version of advice, that incorporates items advertisers are looking to sell.

Anonymous said...

The only reason I joined Polyvore was to improve/work on my own style, with the advice of others. How could you do this? By doing this, you have taken away the main means by which fashion lovers on Polyvore bond. Definitely not a good choice.

"Wow, closing the ask section was the best idea ever. Now I can focus on making more sets. Thanks Polyvore for thinking about me. Love you!"

Sierra F. said...

I mainly used Polyvore for the Ask section-I love both receiving and giving fashion advice. I honestly can't understand why you would choose to close down the section when it was so popular and widely used. It was a great resource for me to get the kind of fashion advice no other website offered. I haven't used Polyvore for making sets in over a year, and now I won't use Polyvore at all. You've lost me and countless other users because of this decision. I'm so disappointed.

Anonymous said...

Your main thing was really the advice column? Maybe take another look around. There are thousands of members here demonstrating their own individual styles. They bring clippings of wonderful stuff from all over the planet, and their sets show a million different ways that the wonderful stuff can be worn or put into play. The great thing is figuring out what you really like and what you really think looks good. Exploring and clipping and playing around help you to discover looks you can actually achieve. Developing a style is exactly like building a muscle. Advice won't get it done.

Polyvore Sucks Without Ask said...

The Ask section was the only reason I came on here. Honestly, i thought it was the best part of polyvore, and the part that made the most sense. Honestly, there is no valid reason for them to be shutting it down other than they are only doing it for marketing. The only thing you can do on Polyvore anymore is making sets and how am I supposed to even get my own account out there for other people to recognize my work without ask? it would be pretty hard, especially because I'm not big on the whole collage thing. Where am I supposed to go for style advice now? Polyvore is and was full of people who shared a common interest (that being fashion) and I felt these people knew best on making decisions or helping me and others out. Taking away the ask section is like putting a child up for adoption. I'm sure you just lost 98% of the people who joined.

Anonymous said...

I'm beyond disappointed to see this section shut down. This was one of the things that brought me to Polyvore. It will be missed. Yahoo is horrific when it comes to fashion advice. This is probably the worst thing you have ever changed. In times when I would only go on Polyvore on occasion, I always came back on for this section of the site.I'm disappointed and feel that I will use Polyvore significantly less. The majority of my real life friends only used Polyvore for this purpose.

Anonymous said...

I'm fully aware that the main purpose of your site are sets, but this is one of your biggest mistakes. I will no longer be using Polyvore. I've always made sets, but never was very into it. I started making sets while I was waiting for answers to my questions. I really don't see myself remembering to go onto your site anymore.

Anonymous said...

Gosh I was a top style guru of all time and honestly I see no point in going on polyvore ever. I just its not like I feel the urge to sign in anymore and see whats going on. Sets, while they may be the main part of the site, were always boring to me, even if my sets are well liked. Its just polyvore is boring now and is like pretty much any fashion website, it is not longer unique. Bye, bye polyvore!

Thank you to all you wonderful stylists out there who made the ASK section what it was - a fantastic resource for people who love fashion. If you ask on Yahoo you aren't asking a dedicated fashion and style loving community. I can't believe Polyvore couldn't see the value of this section.

Won't be using Polyvore any more. Ridiculous how you would close pretty much the only useful thing on this site.

Probably one of the biggest mistakes you've made. You probably should've just left it up with whatever "problems" you thought were there then to take the whole thing down completely...

This Advice section was great! It was the ONLY reason I joined polyvore. I have a zillion clothes and I often get overwhelmed when I walk in my closet.

I never used Polyvore to make collages and stuff like that, I just liked to be able to ask questions and browse previous questions and answers. It was great. What a shame. I used that function weekly. SMH

There was no reason to close it down. No longer using this site anymore; that was the only valuable usage I got from it. Ridiculous decision on polyvore's part; say goodbye to majority of your user

marisafleur said...

What?? This was the only reason I kept coming back to Polyvore! If I want to look at Lookbooks, I'll just flip through magazines! Users who are serious about fashion need a resource for the challenging questions and for new ideas regarding specific items. As a venture investor myself, I really think the Q&A was the one feature that drew a strong repeat user base. Without it, I think you will have trouble having a strong differentiator to the website and way to generate repeat visits. Not the best move IMHO.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, but that was a ridiculous choice to make! The only reason I made a Polyvore account in the first place was for the Ask section and now that you have taken it down, I have no use for your website anymore. Why did you even take it down? No problems arose from it, no fighting whatsoever. It was a place to get styling tips from people all over the word who have a different fashion sense than you, someone who could make you open your eyes to more variety. Really dumb decision!

Anonymous said...

I'm really disappointed about this. I never asked or answered a question in this section, however I frequently searched through other people's questions and answers on trends that I was interested in. Like others I will no longer use Polyvore....My primary objective for visiting was the ease of browsing this section for advice on new trends.

I have read the comments, and it looks like a lot more people have been made unhappy by this decision than happy. Please reconsider, after everything the people have said, and bring back the Ask/Answer section. Thank you.

It's a shame. The advice section is the only reason I ever began using this site, and the only reason I continue to do so. Well, I'm off to find a site that does offer fashion advice... peace!

I went on this website for the first time in several months and I was so disappointed to see that you closed the Style Advice section for seemingly no reason. I've been a member for four years (one year on my current account and three years on my old account) and the Style Advice section has always been my favorite part of the website and it was the reason why I was a member for so long. I don't know why you closed it. Everyone enjoyed it and I never heard any complaints. I'm extremely disappointed and I doubt I'll be coming on here anymore. From the comments I've read, you've lost a lot of loyal members by doing this. It was a stupid decision. Why close a part of a website that everyone loved?

P.S. Maybe you should've given us recognition by keeping that part of the site. Seriously, you want to give us the attention we deserve by closing our favorite part of the site? It doesn't make sense.

The style advice was the main reason I visited polyvore. To help others look beautiful and gain new ideas from others view. I personally enjoyed helped giving out style advice and knowing people agreed with my outfit choices but its disappointing to think I wont be able to do that on polyvore anymore. I felt like closing the style advice was something that shouldve been kept. But for whatever reason style advice was closed, i respect your decisions.

i think i might have to stop using polyvore. even though it had been a while since i last visited the website, the ONLY reason I came on the site was to seek fashion advice from my fellow fashionistas and i can't do that anymore. :( very, very disappointed.

When the style advice section first closed, I was annoyed. Now I am even more annoyed! It really helped me make fashion choices and now I am beyond upset that I can no longer ask what to wear with a certain item.

Please bring it back! Its the best thing on the site. I joined polyvore about a year ago and I find it very helpful to be able to ask questions and get great responses on a personal level. I don't think that people answered questions just for the recognition. Please consider the fact that through the style advice section so many people have been helped. From reading the comments above it is apparent that it was also a favorite among the majority of your users. You're taking away something that many people love and it is unfair.

I know I am a bit late to express my opinion, but I just want to say a few words. Style Advice is one of the best things ever created on Polyvore! I found it really useful; and judging from the engagement among members, Style Advice was really a great platform to connect each other.

However, I'm pleased to have a chance to enjoy this section so much. Best wishes for Polyvore, can't wait to see new ideas!

Bad decision.

This is absolutely ridiculous. Horrid decision. I came back to Polyvore mainly for the Ask section. Terrible.

I am so mad! Never using Polyvore again

I've stopped using Polyvore entirely after the ask section closed. It was a dumb decision, everyone loved it. Try to think up a useful update next time instead of screwing up what wasn't broken. Ugh, irritated.

Please bring back the ask section!!! I haven't found another site that serves that section's purpose nearly as well as polyvore did! I miss it :(

Anonymous said...

I can't believe you've done this!!!! ARRRRAGAGAGAGAGGAGGGGGGG!!!!

Literally the best bit of polyvore was that I could get proper advice on clothes from people who understand normal outfits and not 'fashion gurus' who literally know nothing about what average people want to wear. I still miss it and wish you would just bring it back.

this was my favorite part of polyvore. i will not be using this site anymore. *sigh* time to go delete the app

Welp I guess im deleting my polyvore
:( This is so sad. We weren't asking for recognition, we are asking for advice.

We're working on a brand new app. The concept is simple: snap a picture with your smartphone, ask a question and let the community recommend new style combinations.
We added a touch of Instagram to a Polyvore Style Ask like experience.
It's called Jaqard and it will be out in October 2013.
Check our .com website for some preview pictures.
I hope you'll love it! :)

The advice section was one of my favorite parts. I could share my opinions, and hear others. Its like taking away our freedom of speech by removing the ask. I recently made a new account, but on my previous one I LOVED ask. There is no good reason to take it away from us.

The fact there are OVER A THOUSAND COMMENTS TELLING YOU TO GET BACK THE ASK SECTION SHOULD TELL YOU IT WAS A MISTAKE!! You DESTROYED our freedom of speech! POLYVORE LOST ALL CREDIBILITY

I have to say that I really don't like the changes that have been made to Polyvore. The closing of this section is just one of the many cons! Yes, I get it, the new design is more modern and not to mention a whole lot more similar to other sites, like Tumblr and pinterest! I don't like the look of my profile now, and how it's set up... I just don't get it. Why fix something that's not broken?
