It took me almost 5hours behind the scenes but I managed to get the Gallery back in working condition. With this I had to change our points system back to the previous method so it won't be automatic like before. A slight step back but a temporary solution so that members can at least make purchases properly. One up side is that you'll once again receive points automatically for other things like friend requests, posting designs in the forums, and even replying to others topics. I'd like to make transactions automatic again eventually but for now this will make the gallery run again! Once again...
So I've found the issue with the Gallery and why the Buy Design button isn't working. The problem is that its much more complex involving the whole points system. Basically the place I got a code from to use for automating our points has closed their site down, making those codes unavailable. Basically since it was relied upon for our codes to work, they now don't. My only solution is to find a fix to keep them automated on my own or switch back to the previous form of system that was used. This would just mean that it won't update a persons number of points automatically when they buy designs,...
I'm pretty sure I know where the whole rumor of Designers Society closing started but they're completely FALSE. There is no way I'm shutting the site down, I have put way too much effort, time, and money into it to just randomly close. I'm extremely close to graduating college which means I'll hopefully have much more time to actually get done what I want to on here. I've bought our domain for the next year with my own money and Designers Society definitely isn't going anywhere. So let the rumors cease here!
So OK! If you want to design then take a few minutes do so! I would much rather take time to really design than making hair outlines but if that's what it takes to get action then so be it! As my friend Sia would say, "stop crying".
I've decided to try test working the sumo/queekly and sketchpad. Its seems that queekly is the only one that really works. Sumpaint works but the 'file, edit, image bar at the top is cover by the design program options so it cannot be accessed. Sketchpad would not open and when I tried to download it I ran into problems. This might be why newmembers who do not have their own design programs are finding designing a challenge.
There have been around 750 new members join since this time last year. Not one of them has posted a design. I really don't think that they would have joined if they didn't want to participate so the only conclusion that I can think of is that they simply can't work the program. Not sure what can be done to rectify.
So I had thought about waiting to complete the full Spring collection I have planned before I post any of them...but this took a ridiculously long time to make and I don't want to not post anything for over a month; thus, I shall be posting them as they are completed.
As always, critiques are welcome. -Sam(OuraniaHathor)
Hello, I'm back with a design that's actually more than a year old lol. My inner perfectionist wouldn't stop nagging, but I finally managed to silence her, so here it is. Obviously not 100% satisfied with it, but oh well A better quality version will be up in my gallery in a few minutes :)
