As you all know I've recently released the Society Reader again. At the same time I'm looking to bring on some team members to help with the upcoming issues. I'm currently looking for 2 writers, 2 designers, and 1 editor. Those of you who are interested in these positions please leave a comment. If you'd like to know more about the roles of each position please ask as well! Once I contact each of you in regards to positions I'll look to give you each a test article to see what you can do! Those that I choose will then get access to the Society Reader for editing, special monthly gifts and 1,000...

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

Thank you to all of you who have helped Designers Society reach 5,000 members. After just over a year up and running, we have had almost 10,000 different viewers and over 100,000 visits world wide. I have worked very hard to create this fashion safe haven for you all to join together, and you all have made it the society that it is today. To celebrate there will be giveaways and free presents for everyone!

Right now I'm working on some new additions, mainly a transformation of our home page. Today I've added a small new change that shows the users avatars on our forums. I'm debating this so give your thoughts: yes, no, or needs work. The home page will be a large project that may take me a month, but will be brand new and interactive. Here's a preview outline of the new home so far:
There will be our first designathon this saturday, all...

As a way to show off some of the amazing designs you've bought, I'm opening an outfit contest. This contest will have three rounds, hence the name trio contest. Each round will have its own theme, prizes, and one winner which will be posted below. How to enter: Simply create an outfit using any designs you have made or purchased from others, if you know the designers names try to include credits too.

Round #1: Outfit of Yourself
Winner: Chloe

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)....

Those of you who are interested in helping with this need just a few things first. Artists please show some images you've made like boutiques, banners, etc. Writers please write an...

Well I procrastinated quite a lot but I've finally added a new section of the material content! The outlines are now available for each of the ranks, which each have three special designs. You can download them from that specific ranks content page and use them to help you create designs. As an extra bonus with elite content which offers the HD models, the outlines are also in HD! Hope you all enjoy these new designs and look for the appliques to be added soon :)

Remember those code rewards? We haven't been using them lately but there will be plenty more to come soon. You can now find a link to the code rewards page on the site footer, at the bottom of every page, and still on the Earn Points page too. You can look for code rewards in the society reader, youtube videos, and during different events. All codes are now worth 100 points so have fun looking around for them!

After about a week of work on our newest feature, businesses are now available. With a business you can create a profile with collections, stores, samples, and more. You can promote your business, create a logo, and even turn it into a society store! To see more information you can find the Business page under the Agency tab. You'll also notice that a few of the pages have been moved around on the menu to make room for this new addition. The University has now been moved to the Office tab for those of you...

This past month I've been so busy and haven't gotten the chance to add as much as I like to. So to make up for it, I'll be adding more new additions this month. Here is a list of some of the things I'd like to accomplish this May.
-Finishing the new material content
-New Contest soon
-Male Society Store
-Youtube Promo Video

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...

Okay we are gonna try something fun since I see forums for tips and feedback in the forums. I'm going to make an official one with prizes so here's how it'll work. 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...

This month we are wrapping up our first class of Designers Society University! The months have flown by and now we are almost ready to congratulate our new graduates. The past month, some of the pages have been undergoing new cosmetic changes such as the Custom Central, Society Stores, and more. There will continue to be tons of work on the other pages, hopefully wrapping up at the end of the month. With the unveiling of the new feature, Businesses, we will see more activity and designing as well as new...

So I changed my username to Leandra since I prefer to change to my actual name instead of the boring Admin. Also since my username is colored black and it says Administrator on all my messages and profile I figure you all know it's me. So hopefully this isn't unconvenient for everyone to be sending messages to this instead of Admin?
by Leandra - Comments: 8 - Views: 639

You'll start to notice over the next week or so that the look of most our pages are changing. So far the Society Stores and Custom Central have been updated. I just finished the custom central tonight so those of you who want to be on there and qualify should apply soon! I will be working on the other main pages but just give me feedback on what you think of the new setup!

I've noticed that the Auction House isn't as active as it used to be and it is probably the bigger part of my maintenance every week. Since it is becoming less used and we are now adding new features like businesses, I wasn't sure if the Auction House should stay. Now I'm giving everyone a chance to voice their opinions and ideas to either support or oppose this issue. My solution would be to remove the auction house and link the business in its place since it's a source for members to buy designs. Then...

Now, with the release of the HD models, many members are creating HD fashions that they sell. Since some of you may not have the HD model and want certain fashions that are in HD, there is a way to fit them. It is very simple to do and the first step is to open the HD fashion you want to downsize in the design studio. It the top is the Image tab where you'll want to click "Image Size..." There will be several options, you'll want to uncheck the Smoothing box and then check the Constrain Proportions box....

After a few weeks I've finally had time to look through all my applications to choose our new artist and writer. I not only looked at the most recent application post but previous ones as well. It was a difficult decision since all the artwork was beautiful and I enjoyed reading each article, but I had to choose just two members. ManiacSmile with her awesome art will be our newest artist to help with future society reader covers and more! My lovely Florablossom will be writing the articles in our new society...

This month I have a few new features planned for you all. So far in the past few weeks there have been new additions as well. You'll notice that the society hero award has been removed and in its place is an award for being featured on the home. Basically those of you who get featured as a designer, boutique, or gallery on the home will receive this award plus 100 points. With this, the home has changed a little bit in the setup and some things have been rearranged. Right now the Spring Special is going...

Let's start off the new month by congratulating our first DSU star student, Chloe! The assignments star students are chosen not only on how well the design looks, but also how they have improved themselves based on their other designs. She did an excellent job on her submission and has shown great improvement and work.

I have been working the past few days to get as much done as possible. Most all of you have probably seen the new Project Runway SS. I have also got the new lesson 3 of DSU up with the assignment sent to students. Now today I've added the Elite Challenges forum section which is visible to only elite members. From there you will be able to enter these challenges for extra points and show off your designs with feedback at the same time. There will be many new challenges added to it soon so keep checking there. Not only this but I have also changed the chat a bit with the tabs "Need Help" and "Feedback"....

I've finally finished our new model templates! The old ones definitely needed a remake and now it is here. The pose has not changed and most all designs should still fit the model. The only thing that won't work is makeup since I gave it an entirely new face. I hope you all like it, you can download here and on the materials page. Let me know what you all think!

You can buy this pack now for 350 points, including 7 different face styles!

Now this is a tester for now, this feature may or may not stay based on how much work I can do on it and how it goes over with members. What you can do is make offers on fashions that you would like. After that I will send these offers to the seller and from there you may be contacted with a reply from them. At this point, it is up to the seller to contact you on the offer, then the seller can post the fashion in the gallery again with the price for you and under reservations. Now the easiest way for the seller to do this is edit the fashion, from there you can move it to reservations, change the...

Hey everyone the new model template has come! With all the site changes a very basic important part is the model you start with. I've just finished improvements on the model to help with designing. The new model includes a pose that will allow you to show off shoes, purses, earrings, etc. The model template replaces the old ones which can still be used. The new models will fit most all current and past designs, if a few don't you can still use them on the old models. I highly recommend using the new models which I hope everyone can convert over to.

There is now a new special text field for elite/team members! The Personal Description can be 100 characters long and will appear on your information on every post that you make.

The things removed from posts are still available for view on profiles. Hope you all enjoy the new look!
