I've been trying to think of the best options when it comes to adding site features. While I have a huge list of ideas and want to bring all of them back, I can only handle one thing at a time. So I decided to turn to all of you and let you help choose what we add next. You can voice your ideas as well if you have other thoughts or if you have additional ideas for the features listed. I'll let you all decide over the next 2 weeks and then start putting the highest vote into action mid April!

Hello all! I know it's been awhile, but I'm finally working on some more changes. I've been working privately on fixing many small errors over the past month. It's also time to officially start announcing the current and upcoming changes.
#1 The New Material Page: This is still a work in progress and I plan to add more content for the different ranks, but hopefully this will now be more helpful for new members to work with template designs!
#2 Updated Banner: It's been awhile since the banner contest so it's time for some freshening up, and with...

Why is there so much drama lately? I know there aren't as many active members and you're all finding ways to keep entertained but people that's not the way to go about it! Members have been driven away by malicious comments and snide remarks. Instead of trying to tear apart other and have a negative opinion of everything, you should try to help each other with constructive tips and helpful ideas. New members who see all of this going on aren't enticed to join in with a bunch of catty drama, they want to share creative ideas and connect on a basis we all enjoy, FASHION. Remember...

I'm sorry that it's been so long, but the weekly challenges are back!
This one comes with a lil silver & gold prize: Surprise Accessory Collection featuring designs from several of our members!
by Leandra - Comments: 7 - Views: 145

So I know that it's been awhile since I've added site updates, but I'm now able to settle down after graduation and take some time to work on the site. You've all noticed the new weekly design challenges which will eventually have an archive to look through and a spot in our main menu. We also have a new contest for all of you to join and help contribute to the site at the same time. Those of you who are interested, you can create an outfit for our site model in the main menu!

I had this idea to encourage some more activity and give members a chance to look for guidance from others... I'd like to suggest starting some new site blogs. Basically they'd replace Elite and team blogs on the menu currently. I'm looking for a member or two who'd be interested in this and can could keep up weekly/daily. I'd also be promoting it through our slideshow, newsletters, etc. If you have ideas for topics/themes and would like to possibly start you own blog; Pitch your ideas in the comments and let me know what you'd love to showcase with everyone!

I've recognized that many of you want the boutique creator back. I've worked on resolving some of the issues, but still have a long way to go. For now, it is running and the ability to upload images and add text work, but the furniture we have preloaded isn't working for now. This just means you can upload all the images you want and that will work, so you can create boutiques, but will need to download the boutique content and just upload the pieces you want for now. You can also do this in other programs like the design studio, photoshop, etc. I'm hoping to resolve the issues all soon though,...

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...
by Leandra - Comments: 6 - Views: 289

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,...
by Leandra - Comments: 14 - Views: 352

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!

With a break in my school for awhile, I have some more free time on my hands. I want to push myself to design more often and get back into the groove of drawing everyday. I was thinking about making a daily fashion challenge for myself where I create something new everyday. Of course I want everyone to get involved so I'd also love to see other members share their creations as well. Let me know your thoughts on this and if you think it'd be a good idea for member activity?
by Leandra - Comments: 17 - Views: 778

Alright everybody, I've been overloaded with work and college but I'm going into exam week meaning the closer I am to having free time. My spring break will mean more time to add stuff to DS. I have several plans in the works including a new catalogue addition based on earning Diamonds and a new contest. I'd like to keep the upcoming contest a surprise but it will definitely be something that has never been done before and will have some major perks. I'm sure you're all itching for a peek at what will be updated so here is a look at one of the inspiration boards for the diamond...

I know I have been off and on with plans for the site, so I know that its probably hard for members to get their hopes up very much. What I can say though is that I'm drawing closer to college graduation and getting my footing more in my future career. I've been working full time along with college, making it hard for any time to work on updates for the website. For now my plan is to binge out on some coding and try to make as many quick changes as possible. Get down to some of the barebones of what works on the site and clean up some of the unnecessary features or things that aren't as easily...
by Leandra - Comments: 12 - Views: 500

So I've been trying to do more research on programs for drawing since I feel that's what we really need to get the site going more. I found a website that had a drawing program called sketchpad and while it sounds basic it's very easy to use and has a lot of neat tools. Basically I've added a tab for this new program on the design studio page. It offers a lot of stuff like patterns, gradients, stands, text, and other neat tools. I'd encourage you all to try it and give me your opinions. I also contacted them about working to make a custom program for the website since their site mentioned they...

In hopes of drawing in more members I've changed our guest page that members first see when they arrive at our site. I'm hoping that by showcasing some of the features and members designs that it will make others want to do the same. I want everyones opinions though, I need the view of some new members and what people think of it when they first see our site. Please everyone give your opinions on how it looks compared to before and if there's anything you think would make it better!
by Leandra - Comments: 4 - Views: 264

It's taken me a long time to do but I've managed to make points practically automatic! Now when you make purchases from the gallery it will automatically update the number of points that you have. Keep in mind I'm in the process of doing this with other areas like the bank, catalogue, etc but it shouldn't take me too long to do those. I've also opened up the gallery again which is up and working fully. With this update to make points automatic I still have some bugs to work out and now your points are reset but you can click below and it will update to the points you had from before, this is just...

Hey everyone Im making up some ads and such I want to use members reviews of the site. So if you could just leave comments with your reviews of the site in a short sentence or so that way I can use them. Be honest just say what you think of the site like features and such!

I'm back! While I've been gone awhile due to personal reasons, I haven't forgotten you all and I fully intend to work on keeping things fresh. Now that I have some things sorted with school and work I can help work on adding new things to DS and making sure everything is running smoothly. For starters I want to work on the obvious fixes for things that may have stopped working or had some errors. I also have a list of tasks for myself to make sure everything is up to date and you all have some new content.

Points: With some technical errors, I haven't been able to update transactions...

Not to get everyone's hopes up but I'm trying to use my contacts at college to find other programmers who may be interested in helping me create a design studio. I have a few people I'm going to ask that my professor has suggested, but I'm not sure yet. This is just an update so no one gets discouraged about the website, I am looking for more ways to turn it into a full business. Keep hope and I'll also be working on some updates to freshen things up in the meantime this summer as well! -Leandra

I wanted to publicly address all of you since I have been away lately. I've been experiencing many personal situations right now including the death of a family member, my birthday last week, and college exams in a week. My first step for DS is to put a few of the most loyal members in charge of keeping things running smoothly when I'm not available. These members whole will oversee the site as admins include:
Angelinamc, Artisticbiscuit, Mykelbe, Shelli, and Tammy
I know you'll all do an amazing job of keeping everything up to date and on trend. They will be reporting...

Alright here I am again! My life's been so super crazy with work and then starting college early this September. Until then, I plan to work feverishly on new things for you all. Once I'm settled in at school I should have some extra free time too. In the meantime, its all about making changes that'll make things easier for all of you while Im busy. Ideally I'd like to add that unlockable store, but that may not be done till this fall, as I have to make designs for it. Coding wise, I'm gonna see about automatic points transfers if I can get it worked out, we will see...

As some of you know I've been away the past few months on vacation. After the 3rd time having to retype this long message I'm getting a little bit upset... I now have my iMac setup in the office and am able to start working on more in depth additions for the site. Keep in mind that I have some other things going on now like a new job, etc. So I'll do my best to work on everything for DS in the free time that I have. That being said, here are a list of some additions I'd like to make in the next month or so:

Hello all, I just wanted to address my recent absence from working on the site. I've been away on vacation and will be for the next few weeks. I hope everyone has a good summer and expect lots of new features once I'm back! -Leandra

I finally finished designing and coding the next new arrival to our catalogue. Posies features plants and florals in this nature themed store. I'll also be working on this as a new series with different designs and new arrivals for the different seasons of the year! Hope you all like it, more coming soon!

After a few days of coding and designing, the next new addition to the site is here. The Catalogue will be replacing our society stores in a new and easy to use way. You can access the catalogue where you found the society stores before, by clicking the shop tab. Everything is right there with categories, making it easy for you to find just what you need. Shopping is a breeze, you can choose any item in the catalogue and simply click to add it to your cart. Once you're done you can check out and all the fashions will be sent to you automatically in your messages. All the current society stores...
by Leandra - Comments: 8 - Views: 564

Now the new members have a way to get started with creating some basic designs before they create full fashions on their own. Thanks to our Angel member, Shelli, you all have new fashion templates available for download. These fashion templates are in white with realistic shading, so you can start creating simple designs. Members can change the hue/colorize the designs and add details using the paintbrushes. Like Girlsense had templates to start with, you can get creative in using these templates or create your own fashions from scratch. Download them now from the Materials page!

I've finished working on the new home design. It now incorporates a main banner with the latest news, recent topics, and more. Below the main banner are the main options showing your boutique, gallery, and present(updated fridays automatically). There is also a section for recent fashions, boutiques, and outfits for you all to look through quickly. After these main areas, the home page has the same masonry as the old one with all the same links. Let me know what you think of this new look and any errors and changes that need made.
by Leandra - Comments: 21 - Views: 1018

Since the masonry setup, there have been many mixed opinions on it. I personally think that if used properly it would be a neat way to show off all the fashions. Many others have found the changes hard to get used to. Since I'm trying to make things easier and settle things in a way that can be less work for me, Id like all your opinions on some site changes. I wanna make sure that when I do change things again, there won't be many issues with members. Also that you'll all then know what to expect with these new changes. I'm gonna have this kinda setup like voting you can put either yay or nay...

A new feature is here... it's the LookBook! You can access it from the Design page in the top left "Outfit" area. It also tells who made the fashions and where you can buy these items. It's simple and fun, with an easy to use index that lets you look through the different styles. Outfits will be chosen from the Outfit Section and those who are chosen will be prompted with a private message and the info needed for the feature. All items have prices and designer names, some prices can be clicked to go straight to where you can purchase the item. Enjoy and look for outfits picked by our team every...
