Dec 29 Update

Topic started 3 weeks ago

We've published a medium-sized update to the site, including the following:

Basic Forums section re-opened

Max # of front page posts per 12 hours (currently 2)

Comment likes

Upload date shown on feed entries

A few small UI fixes

The forums for now are very basic and will be expanded upon over the coming days. Please be sure to categorize your topics accordingly, as we’d like to limit posts that show on the main feed to cosplay-related items only.

Forum reply notifications should be added this week, along with edit/delete/report features for individual posts.

The front page feed now shows a combination of both forum topics and image uploads.

For the front page posts, there was an issue whenever someone would add tons of photos to their costumes in one sitting, ending up in taking over the front page for a bit - it will now show your first two uploads every 12 hours, with the rest only showing on your profile, costumes, etc. We will add the ability to choose which ones you want to show up shortly.

Liking comments is now available, the notification is simple for now but for the time being you can see if someone has liked something you posted.

Each upload in the feed now shows how long ago it was posted. This will spread into other areas soon as we are overhauling the UX for feeds over the next two weeks.

To make a forum topic, there is a new button on the left called “New Topic Post”. On mobile, this is currently available by opening up the sidebar.

What about the favorites? I know there are millions of photos favorited by every account. I just wanted to know if this will be implemented soon or not.

Favorites are saved in the background but we are rebuilding the interface for those a bit and then have to convert them to the new system. I have no ETA but they'll be in one of the next updates.

Nice work! Liking comments seems to be available only on front page, but I guess it will be added later in the photos' pages?

Yes, we are doing a re-design of the individual photo pages while also expanding profiles a bit, so they'll show up there once that update is complete.

Random question. When you upload a photo, does it automatically show up on the front page? 'Cause I'd like to maybe try posting some photos, but I don't want to spam the page with a bunch of my pictures -_-,

@bad_luck - it will show your first two uploads in a 12 hour period, the rest go to your profile. If you don't want anything to show on the front page, a quick workaround for now is to choose "this is self-promotion" on your upload and it will only post on your profile. We'll have a better way of denoting this soon.
