  1. Outfits

    I think you should make it to where you can directly link to all of your outfits and other people can just click on the link to view them.

    Hmm. I like the thought, but we also need to consider privacy. Suppose I’m someone who often wins the customization contest, and I’m planning a new outfit. I’d rather it not be super easy for an idea-stealer to look up the new outfit I’m planning. So this feature, unfortunately, is larger than it seems :/ I’ll think it over – thanks!

  2. Wigs don't show up on peophins properly - their original mane still shows behind it.

    For example, try putting a Court Dancer Collectors Wig on a peophin of any colour - the pet's normal hair shows up behind it. Happens with both NC and non-NC items except those meant just for peophins (ex proper lady wig). Please fix!

    Glad the system is automatically resolving issues once it sees them. Looks like everything’s still in order there :)

    So, yeah, I guess that’s where we are now. If you happen to notice any Peophins out there wearing wigs that are glitched here, please enter the name on the homepage so we can get it resolved :) Thanks!

  3. Add a 'remove all' function!

    Whenever I open up one of my pets in DTI, it's always such a pain to remove each item individually. Likewise if I've put together a huge customization and then want to try something totally different. It'd be nice if there was a button I could push that would completely clear everything.

    I like the thought of this, but I’m not sure where this kind of button really fits in the UI. Suggestions? In the meantime, if you just click the first Remove button, the next Remove button will be directly under your mouse immediately after, so you should ideally be able to rapidly hit Remove and have it taken care of pretty quickly :)

  4. Change the Pretty pink bow wig's category

    It's listed as NP when it's NC

    This is an error on Neopets.com. Since NC Mall items are always rarity 500, that’s how DTI decides which are from the mall. However, when we automatically downloaded the data for the wig, it was listed as rarity 101, and still is. We passed this message on to TNT a while back, but the issue apparently has not yet been resolved. I’ll see what I can do. Thanks!

  5. also add Elegant Draik Earrings for the preview

    I've been waiting for a while to see the preview of them and am a bit surprised they're not up for preview yet! The elegant slippers and dress are up already, but I'm still waiting for the earrings. Thank you! :)

    Fun fact: absolutely none of the data on Dress to Impress is added manually by the staff. Instead, when users enter their pets’ names on the home page, we download information about their pet and how those wearables look on it. So, this item won’t be on DTI until someone finds them out in the wild. If you know of a pet on Neopets.com who is wearing this particular item, we can solve this easy: type the pet’s name on the DTI home page, and the data will be added instantly :) Thanks!

  6. Add an item to more than one list at a time

  7. Show if you have an item UFT that somebody is seeking.

    So for the new item trade and track, I thought how handy! But really, if you want to see if there is an item somebody has of yours, you must click each item.. I think we should be notified if there is an item we want on somebody's TL and possibly if we have an item in our TL that is on their WL. I know it doesn't mean the trade would be fair but possibly link to a value guide before you mail the user. That would make the new track and trade VERY useful so you don't have…

    Yeah, this is definitely the direction we’re heading with this feature. I’m not sure how difficult that would be to build, though, both in finding matches and a helpful way of showing them to the user. So this is definitely on our roadmap :) Thanks!

  8. Display search features such as "type:righthanditem" after you click your first search

    It's difficult to remember exactly what you need to type in if you already found a right hand item and you need a different type of item. I keep having to save the outfit and go back to the start screen.

    The entire Shoryu Knight outfit is there, but it isn't visible.

    Howdy,

    Absolutely none of the data on Dress to Impress is put there manually. Instead, when users enter their pets’ names on the home page, we download information about their pet and how those wearables look on it. So, I can’t add Shoyru Knight Boots until someone finds them out in the wild. So, if you can find a pet on Neopets.com who is wearing the boots, type in its name on the DTI home page and the data will be added instantly :) Thanks!

  10. Outfit search function

    I'd love to have a way to search saved outfits so I can see what other people have done with specific items. I can't customize with the Thespian background to save my life!

    I guess I should mention that, now that we have outfit thumbnails, the blocker to this feature is less about the tech and more about management: I’ve been able to keep DTI in my life because it requires very little management day-to-day, but how would that change if a part of the site needed constant moderator attention?

    I think it’s doable, but I’ll need to be in a more stable position, and develop an excellent plan for how to not let the time commitment spin out of control :/ If anyone’s run a large community before, I’m interested in getting some advice on the logistics behind creating and managing this kind of team in a sustainable way :) Hit me up!

  11. wig

    the Pretty Pink Bow Wig is not tagged as NC, while it is an NC item.

  12. See all body types that need to model an item

    When I type in a pet name to model I sometimes find items that a kinda old and maybe had been forgotten for that body type. Could you add a feature to input the name of an item and it will show all body types that still need to model the item?

    On the Infinite Closet item database page for any given item, it highlights in red all species that can wear the item but for whom we don’t have data. Is that the sort of thing you’re talking about?

  13. Make a link back button for use on neopets.

    I want to tell the world about dress to impress. Could you make link back button that links to a petpage that will advertise the site?

    Interesting thought :) I like the idea of having a pretty button, and the idea of having a pretty informational petpage, but don’t feel qualified as a designer to make either of those. However, DTI is an open-source community project, and I’d love someone to show me their mockups to merge into the site :) Any artists feel up to the task?

  14. Add an option that will automatically price all the items our pets are wearing.

    Basically what it is would be a button you would press once you have completed customizing your pet and it would come up with the estimate of how much it would cost you in neocash and neopoints all together.

  15. Fix the large cherry blossom tree. It doesn't remove BG's anymore, TNT fixed it.

    It used to remove BG's when applied, but TNT fixed it. But DTI has NOT fixed it, so I can't try out different BG's with it.

  19. Add viewing items by dominant color.

    I realize this might be hard or nearly impossible(?) But it would be a great feature to have! You click on a color and get all the items with that color in it, or with that color as the dominant color. i.e. If you pick pink, you get all the pink items.

    Now that we have Image Mode and whatnot, this feature is starting to seem a lot more feasible. Still, I’m not sure on how the details of it would work. I guess one approach would be to first assume that the item has a darn similar color scheme on all pets, then look at just one of its image to decide which are the dominant colors. We’d also have to decide whether or not an item can have more than one dominant color, and what to do if there’s no real dominant color at all, like in rainbow-colored items.

    Anyway. Food for thought :)

  20. Maybe add a reward system? You can spend yourpoints, maybe for Dress to Impress only things

    Like you can buy avatars or titles for Dress to impress forum? Nothing you can use on neo of course, but just a little tidbit on Dress to Impress. :)
