To all my dear CL friends....I miss you!!! I miss the way things used to be here, I miss the old times and the days when things worked and there were no ads, and we didn't have to worry about security issues...Oh, I how I miss it all!

I want to laugh with you and colour with you and create with you!!! I want to see your talented patterns and templates and palettes!!! I want to colour and match up beautiful creations!! I DON'T want to prove I'm not a Robot! I don't want to click how many squares have automobiles in them! I don't care how many squares have bridges, or store fronts or apartment buildings!!! I DON'T WANT CLICKBAIT ADVERTISING!!!!

I want my kind and gentle Colour Lovers just the way it used to be, and I want all my wonderful friends here to come back and play with me.

You can call me a dreamer, but that's what I want.

I miss it all...so, so much.

I love you.

Well said, and I agree so much! :(

Some things seem to be working again.
MsBunky, your post just made me tear up a little. :( I think you speak for many us who are still here as well as many who have already left. This site was something so special once, and I miss that too.
You are so right!
I'm not a creative on here, but I've been enjoying all the colour work you have been making for a several years. Lately, upon landing I'm seeing more ad than CL content. This is a pattern and a path older than the internet itself. It leads to a self destruct. Quality will continue to decline until all the true talent departs.

That would be most unfortunate.

Warmest Regards to all.

Dear all,

We are trying to work on more content that would be useful to all of you.
CL team is growing bigger and therefore we need to maintain a delicate balance between commercial side and user experience. If there are any constructive offers on specific changes, we'd love to hear those.
The new team is putting a lot of effort to rebuild CL website and make it a place all of you could feel at home.
Help us. We are open to suggestions. We strongly encourage it actually.

Best,
Ana
Well, I will say I tried making a palette using Copaso and it didn't work. It used to work for me constantly.
Team
You are right. I tried using it a couple of days ago and it didn't work for me either. I thought it was just my browser, but if it happened to you too, I'll get it checked asap. Thanks for the feedback ^^
Hi Ana, one specific change I'd like to see is to allow more characters to be used in color/palette/etc. names. It's very difficult most of the time to come up with a creative name that actually fits in the number of characters currently. For example, just this afternoon I tried to name a palette "Mysterious Circumstances." That doesn't seem to be an unreasonably long name but it wouldn't fit. Allowing even 2 or 3 more characters in naming would make a huge difference. Thank you for asking for suggestions and listening to the concerns of the users here! Andrea

Dear Andrea,

Thank you for the suggestion. I will let the web developer know. I am sure there's an easy way to fix this.

Hello. I have changed my purpose here. This used to be a community of talented artists, that I would be astonished enjoying. In concert with my future enjoyment, please incorporate a seven color palate.

Hello Colourlover,

Thank you for the suggestion. I will forward it to the team.

Hello Ana,

I understand the need to monetise CL, but the sexually charged, clickbait ads are quite offensive to many of us. Most of us who have been longtime CL fans don't want to come here anymore because of the ads, including the sparsely disguised ones in the community blog posts. The spam is still out of control too. I've been followed by six or seven spammers in the last two weeks and the forum is choked with it.

There is a negative history from the time AutoDesk bought CL/Creative Market a few years ago and collected our sponsorship money but gave us no perks. They left the site to die. That is when many of the strongest supporters left for good.

You will need to give us a far better experience if you want us to come back to support the site. I run a large Facebook group indirectly related to this site with CL members, and the consensus is that we don't like CL as it stands.


We would also like to be able to post large colourwork badges again, and would like the contests to return (money for you guys, fun for us). Also, could you make a mobile-friendly site? Many on CL use tablets and phones. We would like a better Seamless Lite/Studio and possibly a new ColorSchemer Touch app. Please, please make the blog posts colour and design related only. Look at Molly Bermea's CL blog posts from a few years ago. We don't want to buy windows or other things unrelated to colour.

Since Aug 2018, I can longer upload or publish templates I create using Seamless Studio. In Seamless Studio, I'll create a template, and click on "Upload to Colourlovers," my browser opens a new tab to CL but it just goes to a blank Seamless Lite page, and I am not logged in on that page. This happens whether I am already signed in to CL or not.

When I used to "Upload to Colourlovers," a CL would open on the browser saying something like "we have your template but you need to sign in." I would sign in, and my template would be ready to publish.
