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...

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.

Update: The final changes have been made so that you can access the auction through different tabs for each item. They each have their own chats as well. Instead of short, live auctions, they will now be a day long. Every Saturday from 12am to 11pm you...

Here's how it'll work, those of you who want this position. Ill give you a certain amount of points for each write up for different parts of the site such as the weekly Newsletters and Society Reader.

Okay everyone so most of our team has noticed and have discussed the abundance of points lately. We have decided that I should make a few changes to help balance the points system.

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....

Hey everyone who is experiencing problems with the site images loading. I just wanted to leave this little message so you all know what's up and don't freak. The picture host site that I use is under maintenance right now. This means that they will hopefully be back up very soon! A note: This won't effect fashions in the gallery or your avatar since that is through a different picture host.

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...

I need to prioritize what projects to do first, and with my lack of time to work on things lately I really need to work on getting stuff done. So to help me out and all of you in the process, I'm giving you the option to vote on what feature I should start working on first... This needs to be quick so try to vote as soon as you can. If you want to be more persuasive just leave a comment with your reasoning for starting a particular project first!

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...

DesertGhost, Crestyl, Dancer4life315, Sophia, and 誰gymo

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...

So I don't know if all of you have noticed but elite rank members have been moved down to pro. Ranks for New, Junior, Novice, Pro, and Elite have changed to a new name instead they are called Levels. Ranks now only refer to Elite, Fashion Team, Interior Team, Help Team, and Angel Team.
Elite is now an exclusive rank which takes much more work to earn but also has more benefits. Members on the career team are all automatically on our Elite rank. If you think you qualify just leave a comment below and Ill look into it!

This Saturday will be the Super Sales Day. You'll see the envelope invite up on the home with the info for this event. Here's how it'll work:
That day everything you buy will cost half of the price shown. The seller will get the original price they listed still, plus a bonus for selling 10+ fashions. If you sell more than 10 fashions that day, you'll receive 500 extra points! (Plus the award for selling 10 fashions if applicable)
So be ready to shop!

You will notice starting now that there are some new tabs in the chat! The lobby is just for the usual open chat like we have always had. The help tab is for if you have a question and need help. Team members should check so they can help answer questions, as well as anyone who wants a chance at Society Hero! The office tab is only visible to our team members who can talk privately about site things here.
Hope you like these new tabs and if you have more ideas for tabs just let me know!

I've introduced a new way to earn extra points everyone! The Code Rewards system will let you enter codes that you find around the site for extra points on your account. It's easy to do just go to the Earn Points page(link at the bottom of every page) Then fill out the Code Rewards form! The first exclusive code I'll offer right now to celebrate our one year anniversary and the opening of this new feature.

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...

Hey everyone, you may have noticed that the chat tab is gone from the bottom of the page. Don't flip, it has now been moved to the toolbar for easy access. Hope you all like this little change.

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
Hey everyone the first live auction starts in just a few hours so be there at 6pm ext!

I'm going to start working on some how to's and tutorials for the site this September. I'll hopefully have the first videos up within the first week. I'm going to start on things like: New Member Tips, Navigating the Site, Easy point earning, etc. Anyways hope you are all looking forward to this and it should be available pretty soon!

It has been a long wait for the member exclusive content, but now it has finally arrived! Those of you who have earned junior, novice, and pro rank can now access your new stuff. These are all new materials for everyone and you can now choose specific fabrics and such that you want to download. There is now an easy password entry area on the Materials page which lets you access your content.

It has come to my attention there has been an error in the gallery. The new images uploaded will not show up. I looked up this issue last night on my hosts help site and others are experiencing it with their sites right now too. Since this is the case Im guessing it is the hosts issue and they are probably working on it now. I checked this morning to see and it still isnt up yet. So everyone please dont up worry it should be fixed soon and just dont upload anything until I know its fixed. You can still buy fashions since it doesnt seem to effect that though.

One of our members had a great new idea that I just wanted to introduce right away. PurplePrada introduced me to the idea of having society heroes who are featured for their great acts on the site. Basically those of you who are kind to others, helpful with answering questions, and enforce the site rules will be rewarded. Some of our team members will be monitoring this, it will be kept secret so that no ones behaviors change around certain members. This will also hopefully reinforce that you all treat others respectfully and equally. Now what is your reward for all this? Well...

You'll be taking on lots of tasks, things such as: posters, ads, slide images, banners, etc. Okay so here are the details...

This August, Designers Society will be celebrating one year. Although we didn't publicize it until late October, the idea was started in August. So now we are all going to start some new fun stuff and have a community brainstorm. Everyone collaborate your ideas here for new site features. I'll try to give my opinion and reply with what is possible in the near future. From there I'll start working on all the new ideas as soon as I can. Don't worry I have a few tricks up my sleeve as well. The new plans that I have will start to come up late August to early September!

You may have noticed that in the gallery there are two new categories. Under the member fashions you can upload reservations and resales. This is to help categorize and organize things. Reservations are for customs or fashions made for specific members. Resales are for reselling fashions made by others with credit to them. Some things are still in progress and not finished but these features should start to help organize things. As well now members can have their own personal albums so now you can sort by specific members. I'll probably offer a way for members to link if they have a personal gallery...

I've finally added our newest feature which will offer designers a chance to offer their services! You can now get a spot to offer your customs to all the members through Custom Central. The custom central can be found on the Custom page under the Studio Tab. This will offer members a chance to request fashions from the top designers directly! So now give me your thoughts on this new addition to our site.
