Okay so I thought this might be a fun game for those of you who enjoy real life designers. What I'm going to do is post a few fashions and the first person to guess the designer wins 500 points! Each round will be different and possibly have a theme as well. If no one has guessed the designer after the first week I'll start giving a new hint every week until someone gets it!
Round #18 is another challenge:

As of late December I will be across the country visiting family in Portland for the holidays! I will be gone December 21st thru January 7th, meaning that I won't be able to create new content during that time. While I am super excited to go back to Portland, I will miss everyone here and have a hard time leaving things for awhile. Since this is shaping up to be a very busy month for me with work, I am debating if I will have time to do the January Society Reader. I don't want to miss an issue, but don't want to slack on quality either because I will be so rushed. If enough members stepped up to...

Sorry for the delay in creating the flash for November, but I have been debating many different options for up and coming features. First of all, today I've updated the Society Stores central which now has categories and an easier to use setup. You'll notice the Archived Category which shows stores that are no longer available, soon to be archived which will be archived within a month or so, and several other categories. There's also a Collector's Edition category which will be a new feature that offers...

Hello all, I know I've been busy and away lately, I just finished a huge graphic design job and will hopefully be able to get more done now. I've been working on our salon, which will be on my own server which I've worked out, so it won't have the issues of the boutique creator at the moment. I'll also be transferring everything for the boutique creator over eventually so that those errors are fixed and everyone can access everything online and save without issue. My next plan is to try to work on the Society Central as soon as I can, while still doing the Salon. I just ask in the meantime that...

I may have procrastinated, but I finally finished the Shop Central! Most the time went into designing it all, but now it's all setup for use! Now when you click the Shop link on the menu you'll be taken right to it, and from there you can choose where to go next. There are three interactive parts so far to navigate to the other shopping areas. You can hover and click either the business sign, society store sign, or gallery window to see their effects and go to their pages. Keep in mind there may be more...

Hello all! I've been away on Christmas break and will still be away until the 4th. I wanted to leave you all a message to say Happy Holidays! I'm also announcing the winner for the Winter Wonderland Contest... Congrats to: Milbeyful, ArtisticBiscuit, and AfsaraTusspot23 n winning this contest, everyone had such amazing entries! I also have all the new year updates planned, but they may be delayed until the 4th when I'm back. That just means the items on the home such as the society reader, may be up a few days after the new year. Thanks for the great support everyone, Happy Holidays! -Leandra

Sorry for the delayed post and updates, but I've had a lot going on lately. I was gone all of Thanksgiving weekend and had lots to catchup on when I got back.

Now, I have all the monthly stuff updated and completed so I should be able to move on to make progress on other parts of the site like the Shop central and such.

I'm assuming that everyone has noticed the new look of the site. I'm working on an updated look to change things up, so there may be a few things left to change. The main colors are now black and white, with two new main fonts. Hope you all like it, expect to see a few changes within the next day or so as well! Leave your feedback on what you think of the look :)

While working on the boutique creator I started working with new coding that would help display content based on the members current rank. With this now working I have implemented it in other parts of the site. This has mainly been used for the materials, now based on the rank you have everything available to you including previous rank content will be displayed right away. That means no more passwords and no more changing pages, you can simply scroll down to see all your options! I've also used this to...

I'm finally close to finished with the Boutique Creator, which has been over a months work. This will be our first version, which will occasionally get updated to fix possible errors and improve more. This new boutique creator will offer tons of new material to use with many different categories. We will also be adding packs in the future that are themed and may be free or bought, with tons more furniture to add as well.

As you've probably noticed, the main forum page looks a little different. I've changed up the main title and rearranged a few things. There is now a search area below the forums to help you find what you're looking for easily. Below it is also a key area that has different links and info like active posts, your posts, and more. Hope you all like these new changes and credits to angelinamc who suggested I offer an easy way to find posts :)

I'm thinking about adding a second way to earn and spend. This currency would be much more rare and take more work to earn, but would give great rewards. For example, you would be able to get special fashions, features, and more with this new currency. There would be many ways to earn like certain awards and special contests. You could also convert points to this new currency. The purpose would be to help members with more points gain an interest to earn this new currency and to add an extra way to get...

Since we chanegd the auction setup a few times, I was thinking about another way to try. Here's the idea: We have a few items featured every week and members can offer what they would like to pay for it. Offers will be kept private(unless you all think it should be a bidding system) and the seller will be able to set a minimum price to offer if...

Now that I'm back though I'll be trying my best to get as much done as possible. I want to finish the material applique items which shouldn't be too hard. I'm hoping to then work on new boutique content for us. Another way I may go is to work on making the Studio and so on like the Home Central, opinions and ideas anyone?

Since I have so much to do and am still working on our new home page, I'm looking at my next big tasks. Right now I'm busy but once I finish this I'll be starting on either new society stores (including the male one) orrrr creating new boutique content. I'd really like to work on the boutique content to give you all something new, but then I also know many have wanted to see the male store and such. So now it's up to you, vote for which project should come first!

Everyone is almost out of school and as a new high school graduate I'm definitely excited for the summer! I have many plans but will be on vacation part of the end of June. My plan is to get as much done as I can before then, including our new home page setup. This is my main goal since it's quite a large project, but hopefully the new home page will increase member interest. I'd also like to work on these other things if I can:
-Material Appliques
-DS Model Contest
-Designers Pageant

To help increase the gallery appeal I have created a new setup for it. Now every member has their personal galleries which are the first things displayed. This way you each have your own "shop" area per se that they can sell their fashions in. You can link it on your profile and all your posts very easily as well, for those of you who don't know how, just leave a comment. With this new setup, the old albums were removed along with most fashions in them (newer items have been moved to that members gallery)....

To help us raise prices a bit on gallery fashions, I am making a few new rules for us all. Since many of you have several thousand points and only spend around 100 or less on designs, I think we need to up the prices a bit. Now this may be temporary, but it will hopefully give us more room for giving more for the designs that are worth so much. Minimum to sell for: 100 points Maximum to sell for: 5,000 points Now this is the first ever minimum and it may change eventually but this is here for now. I also...

You can all submit a design for feedback from members and then Sunday who ever have the highest ratings overall will get some extra points. Also some of the members who give the most helpful advice will get a little something as well.
How to give feedback: Make sure to mention the member and then any comments you have and a rating from...
