Enhance Profiles (Who knows who & comments)
As you all know we have closed off tFS in an effort to try and bring back a community feeling that seems to have faded a little during our hyper growth over the last year. As part of our effort to return the community feeling to tFS we have made some improvements to your member profiles.

You can now see who knows who on your member profile as well as leave comments for each other. We will also be releasing some other new features based around your profiles (look for those announcements soon). Our goal is to encourage the off topic "chit chat" that happens between members to happen by leaving comments to each other on your profiles. This way the forums will stay less cluttered and on topic.

We will be working on more tools to connect why everyone is here. We will have a more robust profile system that will allow us all to post more details about our jobs in the fashion industry (and if you are not in the fashion industry, why you love fashion so much).

tFS is a very special place that has evolved over the years with the hard work of many volunteers. We are looking forward to your feedback and seeing everyone get connected. So for now, find your friends, work colleagues, etc and connect with them.

Here are ways to connect:
  • Click on their name from any post and select "Add Member to Your Buddy List". (see attachment)
  • If you on someone's profile you can click on the the link to add them to your buddy list. (see attachment)
  • You can search for people using the member list (click here)
  • You can also find people from the Member's Profile Gallery (click here)
In order to connect you have to add other members to your buddy list
and they have to add you to their buddy list too!
It has to be from both sides!

If you do not want just any member to leave you comments or would like to keep your profile private, you can change your settings in the your User Control Panel (click here).

After we all have some time to settle in and make connections with each other we will allow select members to invite new people to join tFS. When a new member joins they are automatically connected to you. Our goal is to have a close tight knit community of high quality members who are here to help share knowledge on fashion and all the various aspects of the fashion industry.

Although we do not plan to remove any members (at this time), it is important that you start to connect with other that you know and build your network. This is important because it help us build a more trustworthy community. It is going to take us a long time for this system to settle in, so take you time, start connect with other members that you know and look for lots of great new features coming soon!

Oh yeah, don't forget you can click on nearly any members name (as long as they did not mark it private) and see their profile, friends, comments, etc...

Also, please bear with us while we work out all the kinks in this system, this is a work in progress and some details might change. I just wanted to get this rolled out so we can start connecting!

I have made some changes to the drop down list that you see when you click on a members name next to their post. You can now add comments to their profile and also see their tFS network. It's pretty cool to see some of our members networks because the avatars are all so artistic!!!

Here are the changes:
