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...

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?

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...

All this March when you purchase points you will get a free custom from one custom designer of your choice. After you purchase points you will receive a message regarding this offer and can then request your custom. Note: Custom Designers will still get their regular points asking for this fashion. Those of you who have not bought points before will also get the award for buying points! If you have any questions simply leave a comment.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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...

Update by Leandra: Hi everyone, I have been away today and not able to update points for transactions.

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...

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!
