- Communicating with other lovers: love notes, forums, comments, notifications, searching for lovers.

How do I comment on a color, palette or pattern?

To leave a comment, click on the thumbnail of the pattern, palette or color you wish to comment on. This will take you to its page. On the right of the page, under the area which specifies details, you will find a heading "Pattern Comments". You will see a link called "Add Comment". Click on this, write your comment in the text area provided, and then click on the "Add a comment" button below that. And that's it!

What are love notes?

Love notes are either messages you receive or send in your inbox. They can be private messages sent by other lovers, announcements from the site owner or notifications you subscribed to.

How do I read and send love notes?

If you're logged in, a red message will come up at the top right corner of the site whenever you've received a love note. You can click over the red text and be linked directly to your inbox.
To send a lover a love note, go to their profile and click on 'Send Me a Love Note'.

Otherwise, to read or send love notes, you can go to your profile - http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/yourusername - and click on the 'Love Notes' tab.

What are the love notes I can automatically receive?

Announcements made by Darius/COLOURlover will be automatically sent to you. By default, you're also subscribed to all your palettes and colors meaning that you will receive notifications every time a lover comment on them. To unsubscribe from these two events, go to your own page - http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/yourusername - then clicking on Accounts and finally on My Subscriptions. You can also unsubscribe individually for one palette or one color by clicking on the 'Unsubscribe' link that is at the top of each palette/color page.

(To add: subscribing to another lover's palette/color, subscribing to a lover, subscribing to group notifications)

What are forums? How do I add a comment or start a new conversation?

Forums are areas where ColourLovers discuss all kinds of topics. You can find them at http://www.colourlovers.com/forums.

Done, klip. Thank you.
I think you're right, Klip. You could move this over there and I'll edit my post to add a link to it.
I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Do you wish to insert a picture from another website in a comment?

If so, you can do it like this:
To insert an image from another web page into a comment:
Right click on the image you wish to insert. Choose "copy image location".
Then go to where you wish to write a comment. Click on that little blue picture icon above the comment area. Paste the "image location" you copied into the dialogue box that opens up. That should do it.
How do you comment, for example, a pattern? I don't understand that....
To leave a comment, click on the thumbnail of the pattern, palette or colour you wish to comment on. This will take you to its page. On the right of the page, under the area which specifies the details of who made it etc, you will find a heading "Pattern Comments" . You will see a link called "Add Comment". Click on this, write your comment in the text area provided, and then click on the "add at comment" button below that. And thats it!
How long should we keep love notes and comments ?, Isn't it a burden on the system to keep track of the the thousands posted ?

Good question. I would recomend you ask this directly on one of the forums as i have no idea, and its probably a really good thing for the rest of us to be aware of.
great info for us newbies :)

Thanks for the feedback, m-o!
Hello! I want to send a thank you note to someone that loved my pattern, but how do I put a picture of the pattern in the message??
Thanx!
On the right hand side of the page that the pattern is on, it says "grab the badge code" just copy and paste it in your comment.

Thank you,
I think I got in too much hurry and was skipping the highlight step before right clicking to copy because only paste was showing as an option. I was so anxious to join the contest I was just going too fast, how funny. Once I slowed down and re-read "grab the badge code" all went well. Thank you all who helped me. Now laughing at myself :D
