Thank you! I appreciate it :D

I second this!

I've been here a month and still don't know the difference between "loving" and "faving" and no clue what "karma" is (is this context of course). All the multiple comment possibilities are unclear to me too (messages vs. love notes vs. comment profiles). Are any of these private conversations (I'm thinking the love notes might be, but I'm not sure.) What is the source of the messages that go into the "heart" notifications section and what is the source of the messages that go into the "email with heart" notifications? Sometimes I notice the "heart" notifications just lead me to the "email with heart" section. I feel there must be some unnecessary duplication here somewhere. Anyway, confusion reigns in my brain on all these things.

Then there is a running stream down the right that seems to change focus depending on what page of my account I am on. What is the source for the comments etc on this right-hand running feed?

I read somewhere that "loves" get reset after a certain time. If so, why? Does that mean things I have loved will disappear from the love section of my account?

It seems to me that loving and faving just create unnecessary duplication. Wouldn't one ranking system be adequate enough? The really top people can have well over a hundred loves, and the lesser (or lesser known) have few or none. The basic ranking is quite clear. But I never bother to look if someone got more "loves" than "faves" or vice versa.

Given the amount of loved and faved palettes etc it seems a top priority needs to be placed on streamling and on organisation and quick access.

One more thing, hopefully not too O/T regarding previews:
1) It would be nice to have a feature to view a reasonable swatch of a pattern without having to leave the page. When I came back I then have to painstakingly work my way through dozens of pages to find my place again. I can avoid this by opening new tabs, but it is still too time consuming, leaving me to just ignore some I otherwise would have looked at.
2) I would really appreciate having a preview button for a pattern I am working on before I publish it, because that little over-sized postage stamp simply doesn't give me a good enough idea of the final effect.

Thanks for listening!

Molly, you could do something like a CL dictionary/glossary, that explains terminology appearing on the site, for example karma or the differences between loving and faving and then link to somewhere for more detail, e.g. how to find stuff that has been faved.

I love all the suggestions I've read here and have a few of my own. How about a FAQ on CL etiquette for the beginner. Also, in the coming FAQ's will there be an answer of how to put things in notifications specifically? Sorry if it sounds silly or too simple to address. When I see thank you's, love's, fav's any communications from fellow lovers, I want to thank them in kind & know it goes on their notifications. Do I do it on their profile page, do I just hit reply? I'm just not sure what to do. Reply seems to take me to my profile page & that doesn't seem right...? Anyway, looking forward to the coming FAQ's, thank you Molly :)

this is probably the wrong spot, but on the question of notifications I would LOVE LOVE LOVE and get down on my knees to kiss the feet of the person who designed an added button to click on that would record when we had replied to that notification. Otherwise anything other than an absolutely chronological order of thanking people for their love notifications leads to an unsettling confusing morass of 'Now did I thank that person or not???'. Any takers? Thanks for listening.

Thought I'd jump in with my own 2 cents. I would LURVE to be able to modify one of my existing templates. I struggle with figuring out which shapes should be which of the 5 colors & often once I hit save & preview w/ actual colors I realize that d'oh! I messed up. Not to mention it'd be nice to tweak the elements within the template as well. That would be super swell! And I second the comment that requests a preview button - that would fabulous!

Following: what is it. how do I use it.

I would ideally like to be able to see latest entries by those I follow, maybe in via the search in browsing, or a recent activity button.

I'd like to know how to embed the image of the pattern I'm receiving love for when I reply to the lover that loved it....if that made sense

HopeFull

code is here
copy and paste the code provided, replace 2 occurrences of xxxxxxx with the number of your pattern, and 1 occurrence of yyyy with the first 4 digits of that number.
the number of your pattern will be up the top in the URL line.

how do i fav a pallete?

feliciamrun

i need help (and thank you in advance).

i made a palette and a pattern. how do i apply the palette to the pattern i made. both are separate right now. when i pick my pattern and say color it - it will only let me choose new colors not my created palette. when i do the reverse - pick my palette and choose pick a pattern and search - my pattern doesn't appear as an option. do i need to join them with another program?

HopeFull

Hi
If you mean template and palette do this.
Go to your templates , click the options button and select edit. Add a tag (such as felicia) Now go to your pallette and click create pattern.
In the search block put in your tag, all templates with that tag are displayed.
