New to Groups? Here are three we’re totally loving right now:

Since you have introduced a new look group, I no longer in my group have options such as invite new members, create new competition, etc. Can you tell me what is the problem?! Thanks

I love the new layouts its very convenient! I am a huge Groupie on Polyvore and I got a message today from you all saying I wasn't allowed to join anymore!!! I always love to support my friends and I can no longer join the groups they invite me to! Is there any way you guys can extend the number of groups you can join? xoxox

hate hate hate the new layout of groups.

Honestly, I feel like this was unnecessary, you could see everything on the old page and now it's.. needlessly complicated.
I like that you care and update the site, but not all updates are more useful than the old design.

I LOVE the new layout to the groups page. Being a moderator of twos groups, this new format saves time and is easy to use with the tab options. You can see the sets submitted to the group in a larger than thumbnail view and even comment with one click. SCORE! Thsnks for the much need update Polyvore😘 A happy Moderator!

I love that you can see the sets submitted to the group in a bigger view, and I like the tabs options. I just wish there was still the preview on the side (eg. of contests and announcements) as well.

The new layout is much better!

Why Limit the number of groups someone can Join. I hate That.

As I a moderator of multiple groups, I hate it. I hate the fact that it is exactly like the rest of the site which I still hate. I don't like having to click to a different tabs. I'd rather have everything in one place like it used to be. I liked when it was split with the popular sets and recent sets. I thought that was always interesting to see who had popular sets. I personally don't see the need to see who was recently active. I rather just see the bunch of icons to the side. And why did you make it where the announcements are now a tab you have to click? Though I rarely look at them, I felt like it was easier if someone came to the page and saw the recent announcement in top corner. Please bring back pages instead of endless scrolling. I can't even go through my own sets without my laptop freezing after so many.

I do love that you have when the group was created and how many contest there are.

One last thing, WHY can I only join 300 groups?! I tried to join one you posted about but couldn't because I'm already in 300+. I scrolled through all of my groups and I'm going to assume I didn't get kicked out of any since I finally hit the bottom of the list which was a group that hasn't had a contest in over 4 years (I guess people still enter sets though). Are the people in 300+ groups going to be kicked out? I'm pretty sure people who have been using the site for quite a few years are most likely over that limit.

Also while I'm thinking about it, could you please fix the editor problem I've had for over a year now? Almost every time I create a set (usually if I do it through the create a set for a contest) the rows will mess up and I can't see items or it will say no items found.

sometimes change is good! but for this...not so much. I agree with one anonymous person said, the change was not needed since it feels all over the place for me! it's all up in your face and it's too much for me, not sure why the change was needed because I liked how simple it all looked! yes it had the old style but that's what made it work I think! I also don't like the scrolling! this is something that always makes my laptop or phone freeze up because of the nonstop scrolling, the pages made it work and yeah took a bit longer but at least nothing froze

though I agree with another thing the anonymous said, the showing of when the group was made as well as contest is cool! :D if you guys only added that, I think that would have be great! it's cool knowing that

overall I do think it's too much, like said it's too in your face for me personally and I prefer the old layout because it was very simple to look at it (maybe add this as an option as to HOW you want your group layout to look sort of like on your account where you get to pick the layout!)

all is good with the new changes, it does get some time getting used to it BUT what happened to some stuff? for example I cannot view ALL of my past contest in some groups I am a mod off, it only shows like ten and says that's all the ones (while clearly that's not true) also why is there now a group limit? why can we not be inmore then 300? please fix these problems!

Polyvore is the best site ever love fashion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

han-pal said...

I think the previous one was better..bring it back please!!

Anonymous said...

Bring back the old look of the groups! I liked it so much better. With the old group look I could make contests in advance and also I have a dress and skirt ONLY group. But now with the new group look in recent memebers, it shows the most recent set they've made which could include pants/shorts. There is no way for me to get rid of that in my group unless I remove the member from my group which I don't want to do. The old group look was so much better, please bring it back!

I can't stand the new layout. Why change something that was working just fine? I hate the way contests are presented now.. so confusing.

Inna Ulziikhishig said...

I love Polyvore anyway, but the present appearance is much more better.

Miin said...

Why is there now a group limit? why can we not be inmore then 300? please fix these problems now!

LaDomna said...

So far I love the changes to the layout of the group pages! Looks awesome and seems really practical too. But the 300 groups limit is just ridiculous. Definitely not a fan of that!

Anonymous said...

I couldn't agree more! I wish we had the option to go back to the old layout

Grace O'Shea said...

Love it, but how come we can't join more than 300 groups? :-(

Debra Elizabeth Bailey said...

I love the new layout!! The only problem is I haven't been able to invite new members since the change took place. I keep getting an error message.:(

Appreciate you trying to update the look, but I have the following 3 problems so far. I moderate 3 groups. 2 of these groups only show the last 5 contests under the contest tab for the group. They are over 3 years old. I can not see contests in January and February this year, and last 3 years. My third group is ok and shows all contests going back 2 years. I have checked other people's groups and they appear ok, just 2 of the 3 groups I moderate. Have my 2 groups' contests been deleted? One of the groups I moderate is ok, but 2 groups I moderate are only showing the past 5 contests. This is problem on my iPad safari, my iPhone safari, and on my PC internet explorer website. Just 2 of my 3 groups look like they have had older contests deleted!!!? Second problem: when I search for beauty groups in the search tab at the top, my Beautylicious group is not listed. Not on my iPad, iPhone, or my pc. Third problem: someone stated it above, recent sets of group members show up on the overview of group. Example: I have one group that is a Beauty Group only, but the way you have this new screen coded, all recent sets of the members are showing up. So now my Beauty group overview shows home sets, fashion sets and art sets too. This makes no sense. If I want to see my group's members recent sets I fashion etc, I would go to my members tab, which shows all group members and their recent sets. I do not want the group and sets tabs for beauty group to show recent sets of members irregardless of category. The worst problem of these 3, is the deletion of past contests that are older than the last five contests. This is disastrous!!! Other than these problems, the rest is ok so far. Will continue to post problems if I find any more. I do like being able to view members in the tab. I can adjust to new screens, but the old screens had everything on one screen, now you have to click through several tabs to find things.

DEAR POLYVORE TEAM, PLEASE ADD "DROP SHADOW" EFFECT IN EDITOR! It would be such a great feature! :)

kim.mcculley said...

Me too, I absolutely love it. Thank you Polyvore for making it easier to use. I picked up on how to use it very quickly without instructions. Their is one thing I would love to be able to do, have folders for my items. It takes a while to find things in the phone app. Other than that everything is great, loving the update!

It feels so glad calling home additions in northern virginia for the work of our homes! I suggest to every one of you who are seeking for a changeover to lighten up their kitchens and bathrooms!!

Ascertaining and contrasting daily paper publicizing expenses can rapidly get entangled. Once you've found a daily paper promoting rates card, you're then confronted with the delightful test of understanding it all. There's no "one size fits all" to make our lives simple. Rather, daily paper promoting costs rely on upon various variables, some of which you may discover astonishing. To answer the inquiry, "What amount does it cost?", the answer would be: "Everything depends.dcitltd
