Forum Upgrade .... Feedback
Spring Cleaning at The Fashion Spot

It's time for spring cleaning at The Fashion Spot! On May 13th, we'll launch the completely redesigned Fashion Spot forums, with an upgraded platform, tighter security, and better usability. And then the next day, May 14th, get ready for the totally redesigned Fashion Spot, showcasing high-fashion content with clean luxurious lines and compelling imagery.

Less clutter

One of the key changes you'll notice is how much better your content looks. Whether it's your words or your images, we're bringing the design to match the high fashion content that lives here. You'll also notice that we've cleaned up the header section of the forum and moved advertising around, to get you to content faster.

Albums and social groups

As part of the upgrade, you now have the ability to create albums on the forums, and upload your own images. No more hotlinking necessary. Also, the new forums will have social groups, allowing you to create social groups to share your albums or interests.

A slight hiccup

In upgrading the platform, we did lose something: old buddy lists and profile comments. These features will exist in the upgrade, but old buddy lists and comments will not. We understand this isn't ideal, but it's so that we could have a smoother running, more secure forums experience for you.

Old school

Of course, if you prefer the current color scheme, and aren't a fan of the new design? Switch back to the Retro color scheme with the new layout at the bottom of the page.

We expect the forums to be down for about 4 hours on May 13th to make the changes. We're excited to make the forums better and for you to check the forums out on May 13th, and the all new Fashion Spot on May 14th. Stay tuned!



Psst. Sneak Peek

Interested in seeing a sneak peek of where we're going? Here's the new forums design, as well as the new homepage.

Nice, but it's quite lame that we're going to lose our buddy list and the profile comments

I've never been a one for change and the previous update (which was reverted back due to high demand, right?) wasn't so successful. But from the previews of the upgrade to come, I'm not completely disappointed. I don't admire the white colour scheme but fantastic that an option will be available to revert back.

I do share the same sentiments as Thefrenchy, though. In 2013 it's pretty lame we're going to lose profile comments and our buddy lists.

Anyway, onwards and upwards .

^ yup! pretty excited about the change myself but super bummed too about the fact that profile comments are going!, a technical conflict I'm sure, all for the best. Meanwhile, I'm now screencapping like mad the highlights of +300 pages of profile comments. Hum.

It's resetting our friends list? I don't want to feel sad about that, but most of mine don't post anymore and I will have next to zero after the turnover. Oh, well... Time to silence those luddite misgivings.

^ Same! It was like this really cool graveyard.
The new format undoubtedly looks better, but I installed an adblocker that cleans up the current site nicely. Always look on the bright side, though :p

According to our tech guru...

Quote:
Buddylist isn't completely removed. When you go to contacts & friends, they're all there. You just have to check off the boxes to resend the buddy request.
So... it's all good!

Too bad for comments section and buddies but I've already made back up (nothing made my day more than a new comment ).

Nevertheless, I'm excited for the changes.
Thank you for all of your work, it is very appreciated

I think so ... they didn't say anything about changing those.

Hope you will like it, Softie ..... seems to be closer to what you said you'd like to see.

The contrast is a bit much. Stark white vs everything else.
