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...

After months, I've finally finished the Salon and its now available to all! With this new feature you can create your own avatar using the model and many facial features and options to choose from. You can also get the salon quality model, more than double quality of the HD model, and create your own designs to use. Those of you who get the Salon model can create designs to upload in the salon and use as well! You'll also be able to sell salon quality fashion designs in the Gallery too. Society Stores featuring salon model quality fashions will be sold in the near future. You can get started using...

I'm now in the process of updating the look of new post pages. When you go to make a new post you'll notice that some of the buttons have changed. There is a new Upload Image button which you can use to upload images much faster and easier, which now will automatically be added to your post. No more copying and pasting codes!
This is just the beginning, I'm updating the overall look of the page to give everything an updated style!
Also for those who had issues with designs being clickable, this is NO LONGER POSSIBLE AT ALL....

Along with the new site changes, comes a new team setup! To make things easy to understand, the teams have been consolidated into one. Here are the current team groups you can become part of (color coded to show the color of their username):
Team Member: Be part of the team, helping with different work on the site such as fashions, furniture, maintenance, and more.
Angel: The most loyal members who are part of the team will be continue to...

It took me quite awhile, but I've finally fixed all the site masonry issues. Members using Mozilla Firefox and IE should be able to see everything as it is meant to. Tiles are now all consolidated into the masonry design and its compatible across all browsers! EVERYONE will notice that now the format is a little different so that all the most recent posts show across the top instead of having to scroll down and then up to see posts in order. Now all the newest posts show seamlessly across the top! I may also make a few small tweaks over...

I've decided to create a contest series so that you're all guaranteed a new one every month! They'll each have their own theme and prizes to go along with that theme. The contest will start the 1st of the month and entries will be allowed for 3 weeks. After that our winner will be picked the 4th week of the month!
See this months contest here:

Note: There may be other special contests for different holidays that are running in addition to the monthly...

I've finally worked out an automated Rank system and updated all the ways to earn! You'll notice your rank probably changed, that's because its now based on the new Diamond system! This may seem upsetting at first, but its also automatic. So when you earn more diamonds you'll get the new rank right away along with all its perks! For starters, here's the list of how many diamonds are needed to earn each rank:
Junior: Earn 1 Diamond
Novice: Earn 15 Diamonds
Pro: Earn 30 Diamonds

I'm expecting some of you to flip out about the new Design Studio... but it isn't super different than sumo paint. Only a few things have changed really and this one will support the larger sized salon models, which sumo didn't at all. I'll quickly go through the main changes so that you know how to use this studio and can continue to design as usual.

New Layer from Images: Instead of going into file like on sumo, you'll now go to the "Layer" tab and at the bottom is the option Import> From my Computer

Polygonal Lasso Tool: I swear by this tool and it's...

Many of you don't always know about new updates and changes right away. With the changes to the site, I've made it easy to keep up on news. Now next to the Notifications and Challenges links, "News" is now added to the sidebar. When there are unread messages you'll see an exclamation point next to this link, letting you know about new posts. You can click here and it will open a small window with my most recent posts. The most recently posted or commented on blog psot will appear at the top, and goes in order...

Recently Forumotion has been working on updating the chat system. With these changes, ours hasn't been working. I've been using another chat system which became incompatible with it. Until they have it fully fixed, I've enabled the original forumotion chat. You'll find it in the same place as usual when you click the "Chat" button. It doesn't offer all the same features, so just be patient until that is all fixed. For now it'll at least give us our chat back :)

I've finally finished some designs i was working on remaking as a tribute to girlsense. I have saved many of my past boutiques and fashions from my account before they closed. My username on Girlsense was LeandraDesigns, and I am going to show some designs that I recreated based on my own past designs. All of these fashions are for sale in my personal gallery as well...

This first design I actually made twice on girlsense, I remade it later as my skills improved.

I've finally accomplished what I thought was impossible! Now most everything about gallery transactions are automatic! Members can only purchase a fashion if they have enough points for it, or else the buy button isn't available. Since that guarantees that they have the points for it, the fashions can be sent to them right away! So now as soon as you buy a design, you can check your messages and you'll find it there automatically. Yet another added feature, the message will also be sent to the seller from...

Every entry earns a member 100 points which's automatically given. Some challenges may include additional prizes in the future as well. There will be many new challenges added often for...

I've been debating a few new features for the site. With the recent complete overhaul of the site, I've been working on new additions to bring on the scene. Now we have automated rank systems and a new diamond/like system. There will also be new features to support all these changes, including automating parts of the gallery and society stores. Here's a quick list of my plans for the next month or so:
-Yes, once again I'm gonna bring up the Salon even though I've delayed it lots, I'm still working...

New & Improved:The new look is up and running for everyone to enjoy! The new and improved DS now has an updated grid style look, with things more simplified. The main features are still here but a few things have changed and new features in replacement for removed stuff. Everything is accessible from the home, I'll also be adding small excerpts so you can get a quicky look at stuff such as blog posts and trending fashions. We now...

I finally finished this project and have added our new home central! Hopefully you'll all enjoy the new look and it will make things more clean and easier to use. I'll start by explaining how it works and go through the new additions!

Center Page:

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

Hey everyone, we need some ways to keep bringing in more new designers since we are close to the end of summer. Our goal is to reach the 10k mark by the end of the year, and we need your help! I'm going to set some fun goals for when we reach different markers on a new member meter. Now I'm gonna make this member meter and post it here as well. You'll all get prizes for helping to participate by spreading the word, inviting members, and staying active on the site. It isn't just about getting new members,...

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. I also just got a new computer and am still getting used to how it works, transferring all my files, and installing programs I need. 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. First of all, I've just added the new December Society...

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. 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.

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.

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!
