There have been tons of changes lately including the gallery which is still new and working out the kinks. Important for all the members to know now that there is a points option when you upload or edit fashions in the gallery! Now you can select your price easily, for those in the past your description remains but you can edit and change at anytime. Now reaching over 150 members, the Society Jackpot is coming along and should be available soon. There are new features now though like the Present of the Week, site icons, and site logo (testing some). Here is what to expect this month now:
Since I have created this news blog you can all make replies. So if you have ideas for the site just let me know so we can improve. This way you can get your ideas through and we can make the site with more special features for all our members.
Since the members are growing and fashions gaining, the site has to keep up with the growing gallery full of fashions. Since the fashions use gallery storage which can run out and cost extra, conserving would be the best. Until the site has become more developed and to save myself the Admin some money buying extra storage, should there be a limit. My proposal is that when a fashion sells it is taken down from the gallery. Boutiques will always stay up and members are allowed one each, replacing an older with their newest. The fashions that don;t sell overtime would go to the clearance and finally...
Notice any little changes? There have been new custom icons for the site added. All completely remodeled with a fashion touch to them. Everything is in the same spot, just more fun for the site! Give your opinions and ideas for even more to add. Smilies will be changed soon completely custom as well!
