New Design for Profiles

Dear Polyvore Community,

We love that each of you has such a unique sense of style and creativity. We've redesigned profiles to make sure that your personal taste shines through.


New Design for Profiles


We've updated profile pages to give a better sense of your overall style. Here's what's changing:
  • New design shows your creations even more. Although the sets are smaller, our testing shows that visitors find more to love when they view your profile this way. On the new profile page:
    • Set likes are up 40%
    • Collection likes are up 200%
  • To ensure that your profile reflects your personal style, we’ve given you control over what people see first when they visit your page. The Overview shows a combination of your creations and items, but you can use your Profile Settings to choose whether to show your sets or collections instead.
  • New filters makes browsing through the sets, collections and items in your profile easy. 
  • Drafts are still private and cannot be seen by anyone else. Draft sets can now be opened from the “My Sets” tab when you are creating a set in the editor. Similarly draft collections can be seen in the Collections tab when you are creating a collection in the editor. 
  • Your trophies are still there and are now tallied up in one place on the right side along with other achievements 



We're gradually rolling out this new design to the entire community. We hope that this new layout will make it easier for your fans to discover your style and show you their love.

Love,
The Polyvore Team

I dislike this new design... sorry.

I can't stand any of the new layout!! Please stop changing things that are already perfect Polyvore. Polyvore is not the same anymore...it's such a shame! I've been on, and loved this site for a long time, and I'm upset with the changes, I don't think I will be only Polyvore as much any more!

Anonymous said...

The new design is horrible, it's so hard to use and I'm extremely upset that I cannot make showcases anymore, change it back please?!

Anonymous said...

I really hate how everyone just sees all your items and how you took away the showcase but I guess its ok in some ways

POLYVORE ENOUGH WITH YOUR IDIOTIC ABSURD CHANGES? ISN'T ENOUGH THAT NOBODY LIKES THIS?

Rachel said...

I am going to have to agree and say horrible. I have been on polyvore for 5+ years and these changes are making polyvore less enjoyable. Why are you changing things that don't need to be changed? The item page is completely awful and I dislike the profile page. Polyvore is not as fun as it used to be!

Anonymous said...

no. this is just. no. please change it back. i dislike this. i'm unhappy with this. i liked the showcases. and i don't want to have to go into the creator to see my drafts. just, no. no.

no.

no one wants this.

no one.

STOP DOING THIS POLYVORE JESUS FUCKING CHRIST STOP CHANGING IT'S NOT GOOD AND NO ONE LIKES IT OK STOP IT

Randi said...

OMG! NOOOOOOO! Please change back to the other profiles. I hate this change so completely. I like having my sets nice and big when coming onto my profile and other peoples'. They look much better like that. This just looks really bad. I just, no. Please don't keep it like this.

Anonymous said...

This is horrible polyvore! Please change it back we all loved the way it has been before!

WHO'S THE F****** BRAINIC FROM THE POLYVORE TEAM WHO DOES THIS ENORMOUSLY STUPID CHANGES?
Not only now that one's going to be less interested in other's sets, but also it gives an excellent opportunity for COPYCATS to steal items?

Anonymous said...

seriously? why on earth would you mess with perfection?? everything is so cluttered now and just a plain mess. don't you understand that people don't care about "how easy it is to like more sets"?? people care more about what their profile looks like than how many likes they get. and no more showcases? really? i'm just shocked.

I JUST SAW THAT 63 PEOPLE FIND THIS USEFUL, I MEAN WHAT THE FASHION IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS?

Anonymous said...

Sorry, but I HATE IT! it's very annoying, I want the old layout back! PLEASE! This isn't the same polyvore anymore!

Eleonora said...

i hate all the updates you're making...

Anonymous said...

So this update was supposed to make our personal taste shine through?

IT WAS MORE PERSONAL THE OLD WAY.

Our showcase and title made that personal.

I hate how anyone can just so easily click through my items.

I hate how I can't see ALL of my sets, to do that I have to scroll through each and every one of them. THAT MAKES IT SO MUCH HARDER.

I really enjoyed have the sets so big. So what if likes are up 40%?
& Why are y'all making this about likes? I don't care about likes being up 40% or whatever, Polyvore shouldn't be a competition. Polyvore is a place for us to escape from our stressful lives and express our creativity. But if all we care about is likes, that makes it so much less fun.

Dude. it just sucks.
change it back.
I would think that y'all would have realized that NO ONE LIKES THIS PROFILE LAYOUT by now. I mean, have you seen all the sets and petitions asking you to change it back?

Just please. Change the profile back, and leave it the way it was. It was so perfect.

Alyssa said...

I hope everyone stops using this site one day and you'll realize it's because you don't know how to keep users happy.

Anonymous said...

The old style was much better!

Anonymous said...

Right, because no more showcase OR title makes our profiles even more personal. Totally. That was sarcasm, obviously.

I loved both of those features a lot and I hate that we don't have them anymore... not to mention that it's really annoying that all of the trophies are lumped up. I was proud of my first place trophies but now absolutely no one knows that I have them unless they want to scroll through every single one of my contest wins which they obviously do not.

Anonymous said...

I hate this new look. The old one was perfect. As soon as I see the new look I want to log right back off. It looks so awful and it’s cluttered. I hate the new filter system. I don’t want the items I liked showing up on my profile! The design is just awful. This new layout is such a headache, especially for the following and followers pages. I don’t even know who has updated a set because everyone I follow is just in a random order! How does that help set likes? I miss seeing the set titles and descriptions tremendously. Polyvore isn’t fun anymore. It’s a hassle. Please, Polyvore, please. Change it back.

Anonymous said...

i'm sorry but i really don't like this new layout. it's really hard to look at stuff and it's so tiny and making my eyes hurt. i personally also loved the showcase and how big the sets were. it was much easier before and i really loved it that way. i love Polyvore, but i think you're making too many changes and it's kind of detracting from Polyvore.

TRANSLATION:
Every single profile will be changed. Our new layout helps copycats easily to steal your items and show you just how much do they NOT care.
Yeah, the PT
----------------------------------
Seems to me like this is going to be like with every change. We can dislike it, hate it and even protest, they won't change.

ShannaraIsles said...

I'm not impressed. This isn't something that was asked for, and given the amount of negative reaction already, isn't it fairly obvious that the majority of those who have already had this bland redesign forced on them are not in agreement with it?

The Showcase was my favorite part of my profile page, and it's been wiped away. I'm also finding it harder to locate other people's archives on their profile pages, and if I scroll too long on this new layout, I get a headache. This is not good.

missmelodies said...

It seems like my oldest sets were deleted. What gives?

Anonymous said...

jfc, stop changing things. we liked polyvore the way it was, so change it back & we'll all be happy.

Shelby said...

I really like this profile! First off, I love that our profile pictures are so much bigger than before, and that our profile is the first thing you see. I also love how easy it is to navigate. Thank you, Polyvore!

Ayesha said...

it's definitely not made personal tastes shine through, i like a lot of things you've done recently but this is not among them at all...just consider user's feedback in this case, PLEASE...don't listen to anything after that but let the current profile layout be, it's already so good...don't ruin it..this change affects everyone and i'll have to look at the ugly layout...no way to escape it.

Marilyn H said...

I don't like it at all! It was perfect just as it was....if you want to change things, ask your members first!! Otherwise you will lose members.

Anonymous said...

this is not so great,really!I hate it,and I know you want to expose as many items you can,but there are so may places where you can find them,why they have to be on the profile page,and BTW they are so late to see them,they are not showing up at the moment when you save items.
Any way seeing sets bigger it was much better you could save items from the set right away now we can't any more,we have to open them in the new window so stupid and takes more time(no one will do that),you didn't think this threw,you try to expose items as much as you can,and you take the only way were members save items more ,they can see them clearly bigger and styled actually.
and like we will have 40 % more likes? is this a joke,if someone wants to like sets they will like them anyway!

Estelle said...

It seems that every time I return to Polyvore something is changing. I hate all these new changes you've made. I don't find it easier frankly I find it irritating I don't care about people's items. I care about their sets. This makes everything look cluttered. Since you're so keen on making changes CHANGE IT BACK.

Kami said...

I truly do not understand how this is better. I preferred it when the number of likes my sets have was separate from the number of likes my collections have. I liked having my items separate from my sets and collections on my front page, not surrounding them, and my sets and collections larger than just thumbnails. I don't see how this new design makes anything easier. The old design was also much more clean-looking, since everything was separated out, and I liked very much that everything had dates on it; this new layout looks extremely jumbled and confusing. It's very frustrating.

Please listen to your users, Polyvore. I almost didn't post because I'm really not sure that it'll do any good, but I'm really hoping you'll listen and revert back to the "old" layout, which was really the better layout. I'm sure there will always be users who won't mind the changes, and those who will even like them, but couldn't you at least give us a choice in the matter? Couldn't you at least let us decide which layout we want for our profile pages? I know that takes more coding, but wouldn't it be worth it to retain so many of your long-time users? Granted, I haven't been on Polyvore as long as many others, or as active as many others, but I feel as though I needed to say something. I don't know if you'll actually read this comment, but if you do, please consider our appeals and wishes.

Seriously???? this is just fucking stupid! Leave things alone!!

Oh no, please change it back...

Melli said...

I don't like the new design at all. Instead of being unique, this is just messy. I miss the showcase which has always been a part of the profile and which really displayed the personal style. The header is way too big and prominent, while the sets are too small.
Seriously, I love Polyvore. But the recent changes haven't been good at all! Nobody even understands why you did them in the first way. Of course the website has to be up to date, but I think the members haven't really been involved. For example, we always beg you to create a chat, but you don't do it. Instead, you make changes which are completely unnecessary.
Please listen to your members and change the profile page back.

Polyvore when will you learn. No one has time for your shit, guys, just quit changing things.

Anonymous said...

I really dislike this whole "new layout" thing. First of all, it's way to east for people to like basically all of my items. Second of all, you have to open the set to read the description, and third of all, where the heck did my showcase go? If you want to keep the new layout, change it to an OPTION. Yeah, there are some people who like it, but the majority hate it. CHANGE IT BACK. PLEASE.

Anonymous said...

NO! Why are you taking the initiative to change this website every 2 weeks? Just when members have become accustomed to some new stupid design, you change it and make it even stupider. I have been a member for almost 5 years and drop by less and less, I only stay for the old members now.
I guess you are not raking in enough cash anymore to feed your greed so you are making this site even MORE commercialized.

Everything looks so cluttered now. It's terrible. Please revert back or make it less cluttered.

kaykaylovesgaga said...

I'm not one to complain about new layouts, but I hate it! It doesn't allows the Polyvore community to have their showcases anymore (Which made the profiles special in their own way), I hate scrolling through my sets, I hate how our items are just openly there so copycats can steal them. Please hear us out, Polyvore! I'm not just talking about for me, I'm talking about the whole community! Please change it the way it was! Everyone loved it before! Now you're just making everyone upset with this horrible layout.

I know you guys wanted to try to make us happier, and I understand...but please, for the sake of all the Polyvore members, please change it back. You guys are all about listening to our opinions, well, this is our opinion. I love Polyvore, and so do many others. it's a place where we all can express ourselves through sets and showcases and stuff like that. Now it feels like the opposite. Please change it back, for the WHOLE Polyvore community!

Hear our voices!

Peace and Love,
KayKay <3

YES, WE MAYBE HATED SOME CHANGES PREVIOUSLY, BUT GOT USED TO IT. BUT I THINK WE WOULD GO JUST MENTALLY CRAZY FROM THE NEW CHANGE. IT'S SO MESSY, SO UNCLEAR, SO EASY FOR COPYCATS, SO EASY FOR STEALING ITEMS, SO STUPID, SO ABSURD. THERE'S ONLY LEFT TO STAY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO COMMERCIALIZE THE SITE? IT'S SO SAD THAT YOUR LEVEL OF PROFESSIONALISM IS SO LOW, THAT STARTED DOING EVERYTHING JUST FOR MONEY AND LYING TO US LIKE YOU CARE FOR US AND THIS IS ALL FOR US. QUITE THIS SHIT AND AT LEAST HAVE THE GUTS TO SAY THE ONLY SIDE THAT WILL BE PROFITING FROM THIS ARE YOU.

I like the new layout. but under one condition. could you please keep it the way it is but just add our showcase back? lots of us just miss the showcase.

OMG!!! no one like this!! DO YOU REED THIS POLYVORE? NO ONE LIKES THIS!!!!
CHANGE PROFILE BACK,LIKE IT WAS!!

Vicky @superstarsushi said...

but seriously guys did you see my rant? okay my rant was all about QUIT HATING ON POLYVORE! THEY TRIED THEIR BEST TO MAKE US HAPPY OKAY?

Anonymous said...

The only way to make this layout better is if you made the grids bigger for the sets. This way there will be less clicking to see it bigger and take away the clutter in the overview that the items create. Or just revert back because that is the better idea.

Anonymous said...

o.mg. please just STOP with the changes!! the other changes youve made are annoying but i cant eventually move past them, but i absolutely DESPISE this new layout!!! i want to fully be able to see and admire other people's beautiful sets- not their items!! i dont go on polyvore to see other peoples items. this layout SUCKS. if u really want to make ppl happy switch it back, becuz honestly u just destroyed everything i once loved about polyvore with this crappy new layout scheme...i couldn't be more annoyed.

i dont like it

anya said...

there was no reason to change the profile layout at all... it's hideous.

it's also extremely impersonal - where are the showcases and titles? now everyone's profiles will look exactly like each others save the icons.

i think more people would rather like to focus on the sets. not the items, not the collections, the sets.

the sets are a big part of polyvore and a big way to express yuorself, but if you don't have a way to see them blown up on your page taking up almost the entire screen for everyone to view in its glorious creativity, there is no way to fully appreciate them one by one by scrolling through someone's page. instead, to zoom in, we'll have to open the set up in a new tab - and if you end up disliking the set, that's pointless and a waste of time.

this site is starting to look very cold and modern - sleek, i like, but the impersonality and harshness and formality and uniformity is not what makes this site a creative community.

Anonymous said...

It feels less personal without the showcase and profile title. I wouldn't mind it if we had more options to make it more personal. Otherwise it seems disappointing like the other layouts.

Isabella said...

Good points;
~ How many likes I've been getting.
~ How the sets are laid out so there's more on the profile.
~ Easier to like other members' sets.

Bad points;
~ The italics mess with my special fonts.
~ No showcase or banner which I absolutely adored.
~ Everyone can see my likes, which are my personal ideas for my sets.
~ No control of what tabs people can and cannot see.

Please change back the things that we dislike. Please listen to us, Polyvore. I love this website and all of my friends on here, and I would hate to have to leave because I feel that I have no control anymore.
I understand that you're just trying to make us happy, but this new profile is not making us happy.

That is why I edited a screenshot of my personal profile to show what I would like our profiles to look like. It takes the best features of our new profiles and adds the bonuses of the last one, creating less work for you than just reverting to the old profiles.

Hopefully you read this, Polyvore. Thank you.

metalheavy said...

THIS IS AWFUL. I would rather have less set and collection faves than have to look at this crap. I miss my showcase greatly, I used that to organize my collections since polyvore has the atrocious hundred item limit and there's no way to group similar collections together (I have like 5 collections for items that should just be group into one). It was also nice just having the "lesser" info off to the side and smaller. I seriously doubt anyone is ever going to look at my wins or groups except for me. I know I won't be looking at anyone else's besides my own.

Stop trying to make polyvore into pinterest, cause seriously, it just looks like you jacked their layout.

People were already complaining about this in beta testing, idk why you guys just can't listen to us when we say DON'T CHANGE WHAT AIN'T BROKE. Was anyone complaining about the old layout? NO!

Like most people, I'm not crazy about the new layout, but I can live with it.

please change it back! this is absolutely horrible! our showcases for some people were how we communicated with our followers!this is a complete disaster and a ton of people hate it. this is so stupid and they need to stop with changes. it was perfect the way it was.

Anonymous said...

my favorite part of the profile was the showcase and title, and now that's gone. everyone's pages look like each others. so not cool.

also, polyvore, you've made it a thousand times easier for those low-life copycats to steal our items and recreate sets that we've spent so much time on.

what gives, polyvore? STOP IMPROVING THINGS THAT DON'T NEED IMPROVING. everything is so impersonal now, i hate it.

BETTER WAS LAST!!!

i just scrolled through and read every comment... i counted ONE person that loved the change, and TWO that were neutral. everyone else hates it.

why don't you listen to us?

we begged you to keep the advice forum up, and what did you do? take it down.

Isabella said...

I hate the new profiles!! Please, please, oh please change it back!! The new profiles are awful and scatterbrained!!

Anonymous said...

I feel bad because everyone is hating but honestly I agree with a lot of the comments.

I really love the new time saving features and feel like they were a beneficial update however, I feel like the new profile page is a backwards step and it actually more time consuming. In order to view the description of a set or to save items from the set then you have to click onto the set page. These are the kind of things that you should be able to do straight from the profile page.

And I 100% agree with everyone that although you tried to make the redesign more personal, it did the opposite. Yes, statistics may show that we are receiving 40% more likes however, likes sometimes aren't the most important thing. The show case and our little quotes gave our pages more character and made our profile page /ours/.

I like the idea of an overview page but it feels too much like the homepage and isn't very personal. I also don't understand why under the 'likes' tab, you can view item likes and set likes. Surely it should only be set likes as you can see item likes in the 'items' tab?

Polyvore I really hope you take in the advice here and make some changes. I like that you are trying to improve the user experience however I feel like before you implement such huge changes, there should be a larger user trial or something.

Thanks for taking the time to read this comment, it's much appreciated.

Maleeha.

metalheavy said...

Okay I already voiced my opinion, but I see a lot of people complaining about others being able to see your items.

1) People could already see your items. You could go to the archives of anyone on polyvore and see their saved items. This isn't a new feature.

2) If anyone wanted to copy your set, they could just go to your set and save all the items you used in it.

So yeah, I hate this layout as much as the next person, but the complaints about the item tab aren't valid.

Anonymous said...

Oh my God... You guys are unbelievable... With the last change to our profile page, you claimed you wanted to make it so that there would be more focus on our sets. Now you gone completely against your own words and created what I mostly can describe as a mess. Everything is jumbled together with absolutely no order.

Be that what it is. But could you at least make it so that we can choose whether we want our saved items and everything else shown like this? I don't want every single items I'm saving blown up as some huge image on my profile. I don't want my collection blown up huge either. We were able to choose what we wanted shown big on our profile before, give us that option back again. Please.

mary said...

ugh. I hate the new design as well. It's just horrible, sorry. I also hate the new layout if you click on an item. just please change it back!

I absolutely HATE this. Polyvore was already perfect. I want to do showcases & I don't like how everyone can see my items on my page. Please change it back

Anonymous said...

Seriously not digging the new layout. The majority of the changes that have been made especially in the last year or so have made Polyvore more difficult to navigate. These changes were also not asked for and very unnecessary.

Anda-panda said...

I personally like this, I've had it before you guys since polyvore decided to beta test it on my profile. At first I was furious, I wanted to punch who made it. But now I realize its a LOT easier to use, especially on my iPad haha.

The only addition I ask for is to show the titles of the sets like it did before

Anonymous said...

I absolutely HATE this. I want to do showcases & I dislike how people can see my items. Also, I hate the layout on items. I want to see sets made with the item I clicked on not items that are similar, its with I clicked on THAT SPECIFIC ITEM.

Please change it back Polyvore

The fact that you are making such a fuzz about the "items" is showing that the purpose of this website is selling products. It's not about expressing our creativity. You want us to make advertises for labels, designers and products. It has always been a part of Plyvore, but now it's become overwhelming. The profiles aren't personal anymore which also shows that this isn't about being individual but being a help to sell and to gain money.

As much as I love polyvore, I absolutely hate the new look. It's so cluttered and messy. Especially the new profile page. It focuses more on the items than the work of the person. And the removal of the showcase... it's all just awful. I have a feeling I won't be spending as much time on Polyvore anymore either.

Ok, the new filters are kind of cool, but the pages are so un personal! I miss my quote and my showcase!! Also, not everything we do on here is all for the likes. We are a community where we can share our creations and get to know other people. The fact that your basis for changing just to get everyone more likes kind of upsets me. Also, the trophy change is really unhelpful. Now I know how many trophies TOTAL I have, but what if I ever want to know how many are 1st 2nd and 3rd? And then why are my items so easy to see? What if I son't WANT people to see my items?!

Overall, I feel like polyvore is now less personal and looks awful and cluttered. It just makes me dislike a site that I have loved for years. Now, I don't feel the encouragement or enthusiasm to make sets anymore. I just feel like avoiding the site all together now.

Anonymous said...

I feel like the only reason there are more likes now, is because the layout makes it easier to like more sets. BUT, it also makes it WAY easier to like many of a persons set WITHOUT ACTUALLY LOOKING at them! And, personally, I would rather have less likes than many from people who haven't actually taken time to look through my sets.

Megan said...

I also agree with this suggestion... if there HAS to be a new profile at least change the biggest problems we have with it.... Isabella had some fantastic suggestions.... http://www.polyvore.com/isabellas_proposed_polyvore_profiles_change/set?id=90862258

Oh GOD it's horrible. It's a mess. Please, for the love of God, change it back. If people really cared to see all my collections, items, sets, etc. they would of went to the archives. And what is this for more set likes? If anything, with all your changes, I keep getting less and less.

Alex said...

PLEASE READ FOR SOME GOOD FEEDBACK AND SUGGESTIONS, POLYVORE....

I like the profile and agree it could generate more likes. BUT I suggest bringing back the title and showcase! That was what made the profiles personal. I also like how the picture is now bigger. Thank you.

Anonymous said...

Please don't change it back!!! I love this new design, and i'm sure that most of the people who are commenting on this are the preppy people that make sets with abercrombie and hollister! Most of us high fashion-ers love the new profile, so please don't take it away!!! I think that it's much more organized, and I have no idea what the people in the comments are talking about!!! The new profile is perfect, DON'T CHANGE IT!!!!! Or make it so that people can decide which kind of profile they want!!!

I definitely do NOT like the new layout. Instead of things being easier it`s harder. All these updates and design changes you are making are unnecessary and annoying. You want to make things personal for the user but they were. And showcases were one of the things that made it personal, but you took it away. Polyvore has become less fun and creative. I beg of you, please, PLEASE listen to the members of this site when they ask you to change things back! People are going to start leaving because of all of this. And honestly, I don`t blame them.

Lexabelle said...

I actually really like the endless scrolling features for the items and how everything is within reach. However, I do miss the showcase and title. What if we compromised?
We could put the endless scrolling and easy access to other parts on the profile, AS WELL AS the showcase and 'title' and hopefully everyone will be happy.

Anonymous said...

This new design is really disliked by the majority of Polyvore users. Please change it back because I personally don't want to hate my favorite site but...now I do. The old one was perfect and everyone loved it, with all do respect please stop "fixing" what isn't broken.

I love the new design !!!!! <33333

snuskie said...

I too preferred the ability to customize my profile as the older version allowed. The layout of the new design seems fine, but I greatly dislike having no options in what is automatically shown in the overview. I appreciate the option to choose what people see first (sets, collections, etc), but would like the option to have a combination of my choosing.

Additionally, the removal of the showcase is disheartening.

The new profile design leaves a great deal of empty space and large margins above and below the buddy icon, which could easily be lessened. Surely the Following, Message and More buttons could shift to the right of the Display Name, or in a column between the About Me section and Stats/Trophies/Achievements (which also strangely take up a great deal of width). These adjustments would easily offer a narrow band above the tabs for a showcase (perhaps a shorter but wider display of 7 sets or items wide instead of the previous profile's 5).

On a side, I have noticed that the change to the home feed drastically reduced my set comments and likes. These changes are discouraging connection between members, and reducing some of the fun of being on Polyvore.

Hey it's my profile!! I love the new layout!!! Keep up the good work guys!!

It's a Little bit confusing......

tacciani said...

I'll echo what @lexabelle said, and request that we get back the banner and showcases. I actually am liking the new profile, although I think finding your set or collection DRAFTS is more cumbersome. But if you REALLY want to keep it "personalized", please consider adding the showcase and banner back.

Maggie said...

I really just want my showcase back.

Emily said...

I thought you guys were making this layout so we would like polyvore better. but you know what?! I JUST FINISHED MY SHOWCASE. i put it up and the next thing i know, i come home and i have the layout. IT SUCKS! change it back. it's horrible! i'm not even gonna be on polyvore that much anymore, because honestly it's not cool.

Ducktape said...

Well, mine hasn't changed yet, but I beta tested this, so I'm just going to reiterate what I said in the email I sent since it appears none of my suggestions were taken into account. I wonder what the other beta testers had to say.

I know a lot of what you do it so make the site easier for new members to navigate. As an old member, I can't say for certain if this new design, to match the newer design of the following pages, is any easier, but I'll say it's a lot like pinterest and not in a good way.

I do not go on pinterest often because it's a sore to navigate. My biggest concern and the biggest suggestion I made was the absence of an archive. Right now, we have that link into our archives and can quickly and comprehensively click through thumbnails of all our sets. I find endless scrolling tedious and hard on the carpels. I also find need to access my archive on a daily basis. Next month, I will have been an active user for six years, and I have almost 2000 sets. When items become invalid, I go through my sets and I fix them. This layout will make any of that sort of managing impossible.

Besides that, pet peeves included what are less important aspects to me: The headline [meh if that's gone], and the showcase [that was nice.].

Frankly, I find this an effort to make the site overly complicated, to make it more like other current popular site, like pinterest, like tumblr, and I wish you would go back to simple design. Not 'streamlined' or whatever this grid layout is meant to be [I find it messy and slightly overwhelming when there are collections, items, and sets together. And ads.]. Polyvore doesn't need to be every other trendy site right now. And that's the problem.

ducktape said...

Also I read another comment that set and collection likes have been joined together? Gah. I wish those two were always seperate. Both in number of likes, and on the following page. I would really love to *just* see sets in one group, and collections in another. That is at least one this this new profile has. I guess. Besides studpidly large tiles.

Anonymous said...

We can all bash the new layout until the end of time, but we might as well deal with it. Change on the internet sucks but after awhile we all get used to it.

-.- no just no... this is ugly !
i like it when people didn't go through your sets and like ALL YOUR ITEMS & NOT EVEN LIKE IT . this is just way too ugly ... i liked it before like in October !!!

www.polyvore.com/really_wow_aka_dear_polyvore/set?id=89936123

Dear polyvore,

I have never complained about any other changes, because I don't think it's my place and every change has been good and improved something.
This was not improving.
Not at all.

It makes me feel really awkward and I hate it.
Where is my showcase? I loved my showcase and my page name and now it's gone and I don't feel like my page is MINE anymore. It has nothing personal, no me on it except my sets and what I make. I know you think that it lets my personaliy shine through but it DOESNT. Everything is smaller and I have no showcase and title.

I hate how you have to see everything, just sets, or just collections. I loved how I could customize it before.

And my trophies are all lumped together now!

AND MY DRAFTS. To see my sets and collection drafts, I have to click 'create ...' and look to find my drafts. That takes longer than before.

And I LOVED having pages because if I left off on page 14, I could just write an email to myself- page 14. And I'd come right back to where I was.

i DO love being able to edit text without going to the editor- thanks so much for that :) THAT I do like.

I do not agree with your reasoning-
a) this layout will let my personality shine through?! Um what?! Without my showcase or title?
b) I'll get more LIKES? I DONT COME HERE FOR LIKES< I DONT CARE ABOUT THEM. I come on here for ME. :/


I feel like polyvore isnt even polyvore anymore. That's dramatic but everything's so weird. it's not my polyvore anymore. :/


---MY IDEAS:

+I think it'd be cool if you could 'heart' and 'DOUBLE heart' sets and collections. Some collections/sets I like and others I LOVE and it'd be fun to show that.

+survey. Ask us things and have us fill out a survey. Find out what update ideas we like and dislike. let members add ideas to the survey to be voted on.

+search sets. I LOVE that i can search my items- Ive been wishing that ever since I started polyvore. But it's also annoying not being able to find the set that I want to find.

+hashtag follows. There are certain tags I'd like to know when a new set has been tagged with it. I can't figure out how to do so, so I'll assume there's now way.

+50 item limit. Dear 50 item limit, usually i dont care about you but when i hit you, i really really really want to go over because finishing my set depends on that. i do not like unfinished sets. from, me + others.

+collections of collections. that would be nice.

The new layout is horrible. I'm sure a lot of people will quit Polyvore because of this. If you don't fix this you will make me along with so many other people unhappy. And unless you fix this I am thinking about quitting.. This is ridiculous.

Anonymous said...

also hate how there are items in my 'like' page- it's REALLY hard to tell whether something is a collection or an item and I keep missing collections I wanted to look at.

Exaybachay said...

I hate this new layout. I have read your explanation about "more likes," but ultimately, I am not just a "like" whore. I want people to see the details of what I've created, and I also want to have a showcase, and I visited others' showcases when visiting other people's pages to see what they really wanted to show off.

Further, the way you have inserted products everywhere, first on the home page and now on our profile overviews, really makes this site feel like spam. First, when I "like" an item, it is for my own personal reference when making sets, it is not because I am trying to recommend that product to the world. Second, I come here for the artistic expression. When this site starts feeling more like the home shopping network than the art gallery I started coming here for, I will leave permanently.

Danielle said...

Honestly, Polyvore, these changes are terrible. I can't even begin to express how horrible it is to not have a showcase anymore. It's like you've stripped the personality from our profiles and turned them into Facebook-esque pages.

Please change it back. I understand that you did it for the best, but it has terribly backfired.

Anonymous said...

Well, this was a surprise seeing a new design when I came on here today. My profile now looks messy and cluttered. :( Clicking on what you would like displayed doesn't seem to make much of a difference because everything is still showing and is scattered all over the place. :(

Please change it back to the old one, Noone seems to like this, it's a clutter and NOT improved in anyway, I hate going to my profile page or any one elses now :(

drop-in-the-sea said...

I don't think it's awful. I think it's even better cause in this way people will see more sets of you when they look at your profile. Sets were too big before. Besides you can change your default profile tab. So what's the problem? Don't hate innovations this much! It's much better.
P.S. I can't say I like that scroll stuff, why can't we set it ourselves? It would be better if we could just choose. you know, scrollbar(not sure if it's right) or pages like 1,2,3..

Guys, instead of just being mad and yelling at Polyvore, we should present our argument calmly and let Polyvore make the final decision.

Pros:
-more set likes
-faster way to see more items

Cons:
-no showcases=no individuality
-the italics have messed up certain fonts

this isn't actually that bad, if you could set the tab thing to show a collection and have a title it would still technically have a showcase

Hey, Polyvore. I hate to say this, but I can't stand the new profile. it makes me feel like my creativity is being squashed just so the pages can be more attractive. I know you're trying to improve, but listen to all of us. Please. We like it better the old way!

I am also not happy with some of the comments people are leaving. I saw one comment that read something along the lines of, "the people who are hating are probably Abercrombie and Hollister prepsters." I don't think that's accurate. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and so what if people like certain stores? That shouldn't be an issue. We should like each other for who we are, not what stores we shop at. Polyvore may be a fashion website, but it's not a place for people to trash what others like. I don't think that is fair, so please stop the bad attitude. No one cares.

Upon further inspection, I would like to bring this to the attention of the technicians at Polyvore: http://www.polyvore.com/isabellas_proposed_polyvore_profiles_change/set?id=90862258

This set shows the combined opinions of many Polyvorians. It highlights the capabilities that we would like to be given, and a way to keep the current design along with our old showcases. I personally feel that the points this member raises really should be taken into consideration.

Thank you.

I like dknowing what was what ?? 1st, 2nd, 3rd... This was a poorly thought out plan. I do not want my items on display...not many Poly gals do...add back an archive and please fix our trophies..AND next time ASK the ppl that use this. I would say your changes have went over pretty horrible. Time to head back to the drawing board now that you have the communities feedback.

Literally all of you people make me laugh. You won't even notice the change in about 3 days and from what it sounds like many of you have barely tried the design before you instantly go into "OH MY GOD CHANGE THIS IS TERRIBLE OBVIOUSLY BECAUSE IT'S DIFFERENT IT'S THE WORST THING TO EVER HAPPEN EVER" mode.

I, for one, think the changes are great. Thanks polyvore!

elsabear said...

@polyvore @polyvore-editorial I am soooo not ok with the new profiles. This is beyond bad. Why don't you ever give us the choice to change our profiles? I feel so exposed now, my profile picture is huge HELLO I don't want everyone to see my face that clearly unless I choose to, and everything is shown on my profile now! @polyvore I customised my profile so if you really wanted to see the sets/collections I liked, or the items I saved you had to make the effort to search for them becuase that's not what I want people to see. My sets should be the focus.
This update will also create even MORE problems with @polyvore courtesy when it come to saving items. People just troll your profile for items, and it's horrible, especially if you're someone like me who edits a lot of pictures - and now @polyvore you've just MADE IT EASIER FOR ITEM TROLLS! *round of applause*

I loved my showcase, and I loved seeing other people's, THAT was what made our profiles unique, THAT was what showed our personal style NOT giving us 'control over what people see first when they visit your page'. Actually, @polyvore, you've taken our control away.

I know you work hard, but you just don't listen to us. For a couple of days, I was so pleased, and proud of you guys for bringing back the option to edit set information (about 2 years too late, but hey, who's counting) but then you went and ruined it. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in thinking any of this @l0st-in-w0nd3rland has got a pretty good rant/petition going on this and I really hope you listen.

@polyvore I really don't want us to break up, but I just hate this. OH and before I forget, how about a DOLL CATEGORY?!?!?!?!

Almost every time you change the site it loses functionality. You took a beautiful streamlined profile that allowed for individuality and turned it into a generic cluttered mess. I don't want to view my or anyone else's profiles now. They are just too busy and ugly and harder to navigate.

This change is actually good. I like the tabs on the top and how easy it is to find a collection, items, etc.

We come to polyvore to create fashion/art sets, isn't that where you want the attention to be? On your set, not on what is going on all around in your profile.
I find this new profile look fresh, clean and simple. It brings out our sets and I can honestly say I can "like" my poly pals sets some more and catch up on the ones I may have missed.

Poly is a great site and they do care for us. If anything the poly team would not make a change without asking for input from members. Our opinions are valued and respected. This is a site that does listen, but in the end some changes need to be made and not everyone will be happy.

We all know poly is a very unique site. There is nothing out there like polyvore, so lets not forget all the work that goes into this site and all the love they have for us by taking time to do "community meet ups" etc. Either way, think positive and just give it some time.

The new design looks cleaner and its nice, but one thing that I really suggest changing is to make it so that its possible to go through the pages of your items instead of just scrolling down.

Anonymous said...

Seeing what items people like is frankly annoying. I don't care about their items, I care about their SETS. This makes it so much harder to just see what I want to see and appreciate someone's talent. Even ignoring that, it's a cluttered mess. It's visually awful, and it seems like other users agree.

Bian said...

PEOPLE, YOU CAN CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE YOUR PROFILE FROM YOUR SETTINGS. INSTEAD OF "OVERVIEW" FIX IT TO "SETS" AND YOUR LIKES WILL NO LONGER SHOW.

I actually really, really like the new layout. Apparently I'm the only one?

I do think the italics were unnecessary, but meh. That's no big of a deal.

What I was wondering was how I can tell if my sets have gone invalid or not? Will the red frame stay?

Also, I think each members' items should be a little more private. I'm all in for the item likes on the "dashboard" or on the following section, but I think items on each members' website should be a little more private.

I at first was really angry with the new design, but i am actually starting to like it, in a way.

There are pros and cons about this new design.

The good things about this new design are;
~ Likes have been increasing.
~ How the sets are laid out so there's more on the profile.
~ Easier to like other members' sets.

but the BAD things about this new design...
~ The italics mess with special fonts.
~ No showcase or banner.
~ Everyone can see our likes, which are basically our ideas for sets.
~ No control of what tabs people can and cannot see.

and yupp, those are my thoughts.

Anonymous said...

No - don't like it. You need to show titles of the sets (without having to run your mouse over them) and set descriptions. Plus the showcase added your own personal touch.

Ok. I'm going to be the odd one out & say I like the change. It's clean & I like the filtering. The only thing I kind of miss is the showcase. I saw some members put together some great collections with that *cough* Ducktape *cough*. Other than that, it's pretty good.
I've been on Polyvore for about 5 years, & 99% of the changes have all been for the better. Some things have taken more time to get used to than others, but that's life. This site has become light years more advanced & sophisticated then it was when I first joined. Music, custom editing & rotating, member tagging, collections, templates, mini-editor... none of that was here. I'm not thrilled with some of the things that have happened like overall censorship on the site (items and 'bad words' making sets invalid) as the site has grown, not to mention the deletion of entire accounts with no warning or response when asked why, but like I said, most of the change has been for the better.
These people work hard to give us a site that is entertaining, functional, and also FREE. If you don't like something, why not give some constructive feedback, or at least keep it mature. I know they listen to feedback because all suggestions I made as a beta tester years ago have been incorporated into the site. Carrying on and being rude isn't going to get anything accomplished.

I love it! It puts all the walls down and lets everyone see everyone else's everything. It's clean and cute and I like it a lot. Don't listen to the hate.

I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well. In fact your creative designing abilities may inspired others Roofers in San Antonio

Hate hate hate it. What happens when we discover a set has an invalid item so it needs to be redone, and those of us who have a LOT of us have to do endless scrolling instead of just using page tabs? Can't this just be an opt-in option?

FYI POLYVORE USERS

I have also gone to the "Contact Us" page on Polyvore and sent them an email on my "Feedback" on the new updates, and maybe they would be more likely to listen to stuff that comes from the Polyvore site itself rather than this Blogger site! Just a thought & suggestion! (^_^)

I like the fact it is easier to like but then it is really difficult to fix anything and wrong first impression is given about someone's profile by this design. Just something to consider!

It's horrbile and messy please change it back, most of the new changes have been dreadful!!

Dear Polyvore, I don't like this new profile layout at all, please change it back, we want our old profiles!

Dear Polyvore:

I see that 98% of the active Polyvore users DISLIKE the new Profile layout, please please please listen to our feed back on this!?! Most people at least want the "Showcase" header back, personally I loved it, a great way to personalize your profile plus it adds character and a uniqueness to each persons page. The new design maybe efficient but Polyvore is know for being a site where you go to create and be artistic. Why then would you take away something that allows us to be creative? Now the profiles look very sterile and boring!
FEEDBACK: Don't try to fix what is not broken & listen to the people they know what they want! (^_^)

Sorry not a big fan of the new look! I have been with you for 3+ years.

What happen with the Interior Designs and the Expressive art sections?

Also I cannot make showcases anymore. Listen to your users, change it back!

Crystal said...

Kelsey O'Donnell said...

Can we please get the writing at the top of our profiles back?

I don't like new polyvore because my creative sets looks smaler and people can't see thoes little details that I work on. It is all about likes? How about some creativity? Please give us our Polyovre back!

The look and feel may be fine, but this new design is less featured and less usable, in the profile page.
Please let we choose if we want small or bigger sets: now they are small and "blur" and a lot of sets are not nice in this way. They are a lot better in the iPhone app that in the site: this is a very weird choice!
We cannot see the won contest in the main profile page: I liked it, not only for me but in the pages of my friend too. The headers showcase was very useful to see consistent collection of a kind of sets or of styles.
Please give us back these features... now all the page are the same. Less personality and less customization.
I hate this new design profile page...
