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...

Hey everyone I just bought a lil something for a few months that will hopefully have good results. I purchased advertisement removal for members until this January. Those of you who have ad problems with the drop down, you should now have no issues navigating the site. This will not apply to guests who visit the site, only register members get ad free use. If we get good feedback then Ill see about keeping it more indefinite!

I've created an important new rule for the gallery. This is to ensure that no one's designs get spread around. A fashion is only allowed to be resold once. This means that if you bought it as a resale, you can not resell it. I hope this cuts down on the number of specific fashions going around. If you currently have something up that breaks this rule, please try to remove it. Thanks everyone!

Update: The original designer you have the right to sell 2 copies of your design. This means that if these designs get resold, there will be only 4 copies of each design.

I've been working for the past day or so to create new awards, as well as a new setup for them. Now you can see all the awards that you earn when viewing your profile there are new badges that appear right below your boutique! There are now 13 different awards that can be earned and so the requirements to earn ranks has changed too. Ranks will now be based off the number of awards you have instead of points that you earn. This will also make it easier to remember how much is needed to get to each rank including Elite.
Requirements to earn a new rank:
Junior: 2 Awards
Novice: 4 Awards

Okay everyone so this weekend I'm doing something different. Saturday and Sunday I'm going to ask that everyone take a break from the buying fashions part of the site. Now this will give our transaction helpers a break and myself, so that we can have some time without a super full load. I'm sick this weekend so it is a perfect time, I woke up with almost a full inbox and even more coming in so I don't want to lose track of points. You can still upload fashions to the gallery but please no purchases until Monday. Thanks everyone!
Note: Any transactions sent between Saturday 12am EST and Sunday...

As well as the Holiday Challenge I am also offering a special code reward that lasts through December 25th. On the get points page you can enter this code reward and get 100 points!

Valid only once, must be entered all capital letters, look for points within 24-48 hours of submission.

No transactions will be completed until later tonight due to Leandra being extremely busy, transaction helpers can not do any. We hope that you understand and this will be dealt with soon. I would do them but I don't get the messages to do so. Thank you for your time.

Update by Leandra: Hi everyone, I have been away today and not able to update points for transactions. There have also been an over abundance of fashion requests that I have received today, which caused my inbox to overflow (losing previous submissions). SO to make sure that everyone receives or is deducted the right...

I have added a new feature that allows you to try gallery fashions on the model! You can turn it on and off and it is off by default. At the bottom by the points and controls you can use this feature. For the best fit of your fashions, when you create the fashion fit it to the model and then use the eye to simply hide the model and save your design. This way there will be the empty space around the fashion so that it can fit on the model perfectly as shown here...

So tell me what you think...

You can find this pack for sale in the bank now for 500 points so give feedback on this first designing package!

I will start off by saying congratulations to SweetShelli who has been a very loyal member to us and is now part of our Angel Team as she deserves.

Some of you may have heard from me that the Society Stores will be up this week. I have been delayed but am working on the final parts, I hope to have it all up by this next week and definitely before the end of March! You may have noticed that when you see the Present of the Week there is a donation form. You can feel free to donate fashions, accessories, patterns, material, backgrounds etc. I am working right now but there may be discounts involved when you make donations, such as: 50% off your next purchase. Let me know your ideas now and vote on the poll for discount ideas!

With the recent promotion of our only interior design team member, SweetShelli. We are looking for another addition to the interior team to help with all the work. Basically all you need is to pass the interior design test and then just comment with a submission of an interior design that you have created. I will then be choosing the best member to become part of the interior design team!

Well I have noticed that the team members get a lot of privileges and other members aren't able to do much. So I was thinking that other members that aren't Elite or on a team should maybe be able to do more things? Like maybe have pro activities or some more activities for new members. I have just heard many other members on here say that they feel like they can't do much and would like to have more privileges on here, so I decided to make a thread for them. What do you think?

Update by Leandra: Okay this has been reopened for discussion as requested by a member. The debate is over...

After months of being Under Construction, we have worked out the kinks and finished the Auction House! The new layout will help you easily access everything you need and bid very simply. You can also submit items for auction a week or so in advance.

Okay so a member has asked me about offering something so that we can create boutique comments. Now this may not be possible but there is an alternative. Some of you may remember the visitor message page on profiles. I removed it because it seemed like it wasn't used much. I am going to give you all an option though and reopen the possibility of adding the visitor message feature. For those of you who haven't seen it, there is another page in the profile links for each member just like contact and friends. The only down side is that it appears on a separate page from the boutique and profile itself....

Hello everyone, I am in the process of working on the profile settings and look. I would like to make things easier for those that are putting in the transaction information for fashions bought and sold. So what I have setup is a progress bar that goes up to 10 to earn the award. Basically once you reach the 10 mark on bought and sold then it will stop being tallied. Now I would like to let members keep track of this still except it is a lot of work. If anyone has suggestions just let me know please. For now I won't remove the 2 fields that show the number of bought and sold, but if no one can...

Hello all, I am Josh. I am just going to post this here to inform you all of something important. Leandras computer has been acting very buggy lately and tonight it has bit the dust. She will not be able to update the site for a while so the weekly updates that occur will be ceased or delayed temporarily until her computer is fixed. If you need anything you can message me and I will relay it to her. I only say that because I am not sure if she can access the site from her mobile device. I thank you all for your understanding of this and for taking the time to read. Hopefully this will be a very...

Overall we all got some great deals and helped pair down the gallery, leaving more space. We went from 100% fully used to 74% leaving us with room for hundreds more fashions. Now that the sale is over, the offers are now ended and the gallery has been opened for regular use.

Hope you all...

The office tab is only visible to our team members who can talk privately about site things here.

You should notice the new gallery images, simple but important to the site look. I hope they appear to all the members more now that they are finished. As requested by a member who said that she sometimes accidentally clicks the widget links, I've added a little precaution. There is an alert set to popup before you leave the page, it is to warn you in case you have unsaved work. That should help you all out in avoiding losing your work! I'll be working on some more things tonight as well so keep looking for them around the site...

So I've changed things around a little bit so that you can have more ways to earn for being active. First of all you now earn 5 points per post (previously only 1) and 10 points per topic (previously 3). As well every friend you make gains you 10 points, double what it was before. Have you seen the new Rewards forum? That earns you 15 points per post that you make. You can make 5 posts per day there, giving you up to 75 points in one day! These new features will hopefully encourage more site activity and posting. Vote on the poll when you read the Rewards, Rewards, Rewards topic and tell me what...

Here is your chance to help decide on ways to run the auction house. I need your votes on the poll for how they should setup. The choices are 1 hour live auctions which would be most likely on friday and would auction all the items at once, an auction that lasts all week long with each combined into one area, or separate auctions for each fashion like we have had now. If you have other ideas on how it should be setup please leave a comment!!

Update 09.06.2013
