  1. Would it be possible to make items in the closets rearrangeable?

    I have trouble because i try to make an order of items in my closet, but when new items are introduced I have to delete and re-closet items i already have so that the new item is in a good place. This takes a long time to do if you have a lot of items in one pet's closet.

    Maybe you could make a seperate tab that when accessed, allows us to click and drag items up or down the closet instead of having to "uncloset" and "closet" items to get them in the order we want.

      My ideal behavior here would be that DTI figures out how you want the items organized rather than making you do it by hand. I suspect most people are interested in having them grouped by zone, yeah? I’ve built the basic prototype of that behavior, and once the CS department stops assigning me so many projects I’ll be able to give it the polish it needs :)

      Are there any other automatic groupings that folks are particularly looking for? I feel like zone grouping probably covers a good 98% of use cases, so I’m wondering whether custom organization should be a priority or not. (Drag-n-drop sorting is always an option, though I’m hesitant to use it because the Neopets customization app uses dragging to mean something different, and I like to restrict UI behaviors to things that I’m sure people will actually find useful rather than confusing…)

    • 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 :)

      • Add New List Setting - So Items Don't Highlight in Other's Wishlist

        Is there a way to make some sort of Hidden List like the 'Private' setting, that won't highlight the items in people's Wishlist since the items aren't up for trade. Maybe a 'Closet' setting. Because I would like to be able to search through my closet when making outfits, but not have half of people's wishlist highlight and I have to see what I actually have up for trade anyway because it's all highlighted.

        • 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!

          • Add an option to move items in the closet

            I think it would be a good time saver if there was a way to change the order of items in the closets. Maybe there could be an option that allows us to rearrange items in the closet and save the order we want.

            this would make it easier to organize our closets when new items are announced.

            • Make it possible to create folders for your saved outfits so you can categorise.

              I'd like to categorise my outfits on species for example so it will be easier to search for an outfit and I won't have to go through the whole list (which of course will continue to grow). =)

                Hmm, the concept is straightforward, but it would make the outfit-saving UI significantly more complicated, possibly prohibitively so. In the meantime, I suppose it’s definitely possible to do rudimentary alphabetical organization, e.g. “Mynci: King Kong” or something along those lines. I’ll keep it in mind – thanks!

              • Can you make Unconverted into a species?

                So instead of us having to go through Backgrounds, foregrounds, trinkets, etc, we can just click "unconverted"? c:

                  I’m a bit confused on the details here. Let me offer a rewording of what I think is the issue, and you can tell me if that sounds right or if I missed the mark:

                  “When I look for items to put on unconverted pets, I have to individually search through each of the zones that they can use (backgrounds, foregrounds, trinkets, etc.). Dress to Impress would be significantly easier to use if I could search all of those zones at once.”

                  Is that right? That’s definitely an interesting question—and I think it can apply to Baby pets, Mutant pets, veggie Chias, etc. as well. Marking “unconverted” as a species doesn’t seem like quite the right solution, but maybe it would be appropriate to introduce a search parameter “fits:unconverted” to search those type-3 zones. (And it might then make sense to introduce “fits:baby”, “fits:mutant”, etc., though I’d have to think…

                • Add user submited keywords/tags for items.

                  Sort of like how like Drsloth.com handles images. Sometimes the general "theme" of an item is not always represented in it's name. They could be searched with a filter like "tag:water" or "keyword:neovian". Of course, it would take time and user submittion to actually work well.

                    Hmm. I’m interested in the idea of per-user tagging implemented with the existing lists feature. Community-wide tags would definitely be more helpful, but would also involve significantly more moderation, and I always try to avoid features with moderation because there’s both a large setup cost and a large recurring cost. But I’ll keep this in mind :)

                  • 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.

                        Heck, I own the site, and I'm constantly amazed by how little I know. A user-driven content area could be amazing, if there really were users willing to drive it.

                        • Make our closet more customisable (ie show/hide) to save on loading

                          When people use DTI to list all of the items that they have, it can really be really slow to load, especially if you have a lot of items.
                          If I just want to view or move one item in my closet, or even just to toggle to privacy of a list, to wait 30 seconds for loading seems like a pain.
                          At the moment I find I have DTI open in two tabs - one logged in that I do all the moving of items with, and one logged out that I just use to view my wishlist without…

                            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?

                            • Hi! Would it pe possible if we could link to our Outfit page? Instead of having to link each customization one by one?

                              So, it's kind of a pain when you want to show your customization having to link one by one, wouldn't it be great if you could just link to your Outfits page, so people can see ALL your projects?

                                  Hmm. The import tools let you choose which of your lists to import ’em into, so that might help: put ’em in a temporary list and sort from there. But I agree that our current interface for moving things around is kinda meh, and one of our upcoming major goals is to improve that by a ton :)

                                    • I think it'd be cool if you could look up already existing customizations through pet species/color.

                                      I know some people won't want others to steal their customization ideas, so you could have an option of putting your customization as private or public. I say this because I'm having immense trouble customizing my mutant draik, and I'd love to see others ideas! I think many others would love this feature to be implemented to.

                                      • Add a "Return to the Top" button

                                        Some trade/wish lists are getting sooo big it's a hassle to scroll and even page back up to get back to dress to impress link. A "Top" button would be very convenient.

                                        • 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!
