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!
Another challenge... Round #7:

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.

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. Here's a look at a quick boutique created with the boutique creator in just a few minutes!...

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...

I will be working on our new Shop Central soon which will have a new look like the home and studio. Before I do, I want to work out ideas for the auction house. 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...

It took me some time, but I finally finished our new Studio Central! From here you can access everything that you could from the Studio tab. The new Studio includes the design studio, materials, custom central, and some more upcoming features. You'll notice hover effects on the: photos, fabric rolls, fashion sketch, gold keys, and cellphone. Hope you all like the new setup and if you have any big issues just let me know. Note: I'm working out a few small details still so keep that in mind!

I'm sure you've all noticed the major change to our site design. It took me about 5 hours tonight, but I pulled it all together in a night! We now have a main section to the left of every page instead of at the top. This area includes all the necessary things for navigation and all your info. I have a few things to edit on a few pages but should have it all fixed in a day or so. Please please give me feedback on how you feel about the new look and anything that possibly needs changed. Thanks all, hope you...

I've just finished a new feature that you'll hopefully all get lots of use out of... New model templates are available in both regular size and HD with some new improvements to the original model. She also has a cover-up as requested by some members, those who'd like to have it without the cover-up just message me :) The pose has stayed the same but our standard models will be replaced with these new ones.

A few of you may know this already, but I was on vacation in New York the past few weeks so I'm sorry for the delay on our monthly stuff. 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? I know I keep saying about the male society store,...

Hey everyone I'm still in NY on vacation, with very little time to get on the site. I'll be back by this Saturday though and try to get everything done. I know I haven't gotten to do the monthly stuff yet like the home and society reader. Once I get back I'll update it all as soon as possible. Thanks for the patience and keep designing everyone!

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

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.

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.

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)....

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 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.

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...

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?

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'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...

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..."
