I didn't say they're trolling because they don't know where loves and faves are. My statement was made because they were complaining about something that was obviously cleared up a long time ago and they took the initiative to find this post, which has been dormant for almost a year, yet they supposedly don't know how to find loves and faves. I found it hard to believe. Plus I didn't notice that Liebling had cleared up the issue.

I've already explained the reason behind my response. And I've cleared it up with him via love note. :)

Can't expect everyone to know CL as well as most of us do when we spend hours and hours here looking at colours ^^;

I wanted to get to my faves quicker and so I posted the hyperlink on my profile page. However this should be easier.

I think that it would be much more logical if the icons up top on the profile page would lead to a page showing all the favorites, and all the palettes, and all the colors etc..

The numbers show the Total Count. And the titles are all in Plural Form. So it's very logical when each icon would lead to a page showing a collection rather than a single piece.

"Seach engines". You know, you enter some seach words, something comes up, you click. This thread is apparently wery well indexed.

I found it hard to believe.


No comment.

Here's a question for you: what would you change to make the interface better, in your opinion?


Hey wonderful, good question.

Short answer: a few menu items in the interface or a few additional buttons in the top bar would be enough to solve what is discussed here. Easy. This site's global design is quite outstanding, so I would not want that to change.

Or even simply a visual sign that the Total Count is clickable.

That's a worldwide convention: if something is clickable, make it known visually. As it is, there is no reason to click one of these numbers.

Actually, that little modification is probably both the easiest to do, and the most useful.

OrigamiMei

Woot. Making progress. :D
I agree that making it known that the numbers are clickable is a good idea.I also think it's a great idea to have more icons on the top bar. If not more icons in the top bar, perhaps a couple of short cuts in the drop-down menu under the username in the top right corner.

fromcolourlovers

Those three things are not mutually exclusive. And most importantly, do not compromise the site design, which I think is exceptionally good.

The visual feedback for the clickable bits of a site is expected, and for good reason. It's absurd to believe your site visitors will decide to spend their *whole* lives here, in *your* site. They all visit many sites. If you think your site has good content (obviously the case here), then help the visitor concentrate on the content, not on site manipulation. And don't ask her to remember, oh, that little bit here does not seem clickable, but actually it is, and this is where my own faves are hidden.

As for the top icons and the user drop-down menu, they are already assigned to the user, they "belong" to her, so they are a natural place for possible additions to user functions.

About the faves, loves and such, placing them where they are now was, I think, the best way. Or will be, if someone is reading and is willing to add a little something for visual feedback 8-D

Cheers all.

now that you said that, I really want this. I'd LOVE to be able to easily access my stuff from any page, not just my profile. and it could be done if shortcuts like that were made.

it's hilarious and maybe a little sad that I never thought about it before but WOW.

Faeleia

We should have an easy access panel with all the customizable shortcuts we need. With maybe a floating or slide in and out panel with notification too

Yes, I know I can mute or unmute any topic/thread. But like I just explained to Muse, the only way to actually "follow" a topic is to comment on it because topics don't have a subscribe button.

It's all good, though. I am getting the notifications now so should there be any new posts, I won't miss them :)

However, I have so much catching up to do, that'll keep me busy for quite a long time ;)

Not that you will have missed any comments, as I haven't posted a new tutorial in some months, lol! I should get right on that.

Oh I know that. I am getting the notifications now. What I meant is that unless I comment on the thread, I won't get any notifications from it. As in, one cannot just follow (or subscribe, if you will) to a thread/topic. One has to comment on it and then the notifications start coming :)
