    The “Big Picture” buttons is actually a toggle, so clicking it again brings you back—but I rushed on that feature and knowingly made it less obvious than it should’ve been. Maybe it should read “Small Picture” in that scenario :) I’ll take a closer look when exams are over—thanks!

  2. Put the page buttons on the bottom

    Easier to flip through the pages of clothes instead of having to scroll up to click to the next page. :)

  3. Add More Fake Paint Brush Colors

    I was wondering if you could add more fake colors like Nebula on Dress to Impress? I just thought it would be cool to see what other fake colors you could create on here

  4. Have the option to send the pet you dressed up to someone.

    Give an option to send your pet through email.

    This was one of the JN Wardrobe features that I wasn’t so sure about. After all, it’s hard enough to get users to click Share buttons for popular social media, which is significantly more likely to be how a user might share an outfit than via email. (Currently, less than half a percent of our daily traffic comes through social media sites.) So, I’m hesitant to assume that this feature would get enough use to justify its creation, especially since emails really aren’t that hard to send manually, anyhow. I’ll let you know if anything changes on that front. Thanks :D

  5. Can we make it so you can see if anyone who has items you -want- is seeking items you -have-?

    I'm not sure how easily this would be possible because I don't know a dang thing about coding, but say I'm looking for Celebratory Drenching, which has over 200 people trying to trade it; could there be a way to highlight or bold the people who are seeking items that are un your UFT list to make it easier to find trades?

  6. Would it be possible to add all NC items to lists?

    I know a lot of people use DTI to create trading lists. I feel like it would be really convenient for people to be able to add other NC items to the list e.g. NC furniture, KQ tokens, birthday cakes etc, instead of creating a separate list through JN. I apologize if it sounds like a silly idea since DTI is solely for dressing up items, but for the sake of convenience, I feel that it's an idea worth entertaining.

  7. have colour specific searches

    It'd be great if you could search specifically for clothing/handheld items that can only be worn by Baby/Mutant/Maraquan pets. I know most are named as such, but not all are (Sweet Dreams Crib for example), and some, such as the Maraquan Superpack items, come up when searching for Maraquan items. Having a function where you can select all colour-specific items would be brilliant :)

    I like this :) This week I’ve been looking at the possibility of rebuilding the search system to be even faster, so this would probably be one of the features in that upgrade.

    But here’s a search query that should do the job in the meantime:

    description:“This item is only wearable by Neopets painted Baby.”

    Hope this helps!

  8. Allow Dyeworks colors to show when building an outfit.

    When I'm building a new customization, I may want to add for example, Dyeworks Black: Deathly Union Dress. When I choose to put this item on my neopet, it doesn't add the dyeworks color, it adds the original Deathly Union Dress.

    This is a surprisingly complicated technical challenge :(

    The gist is that Adobe doesn’t provide any official tools to create thumbnails from Flash files, so we have to use an open-source Flash player called Gnash, and it doesn’t support certain color filters that Dyeworks items use.

    I’d totally be down for screenshotting the broken SWFs by hand if there weren’t literally thousands of them >_< In the meantime, you can watch the bug report on Gnash and see what they say about adding this feature :) https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?46033

    Thanks!

    That’s all automatic :) The moment someone finds a Dimensional Usul and types its name into the homepage, we will automatically get the data. But there’s no way for us to entirely know what the Dimensional Usul looks like until we see one :/

    Usually, when a new pet color is released, it takes a while for someone to actually paint their pet that color. But, once someone does, we usually get the data pretty quickly.

    If you know about an actual Dimensional Usul, please enter its name on the homepage! Thanks :D

  10. Idea color

    Hey, is not available in the Portuguese language choose the color Pastel.
    The only way to test the cuton is writing the name neopet or change the language. You can configure or administer mistake? Congratulations on the work site

  11. Can we see donator's outfits for 2017?

    So I really enjoy browsing the outfits people have made who have donated. However, I assume people have donated this year too, so could we see their outfits?

  13. Change Username Option

    Made a UN that I regret, change UN instead of having to make a new account and import/sort everything out again

  14. show which items can't be worn

    For instance, the Magical Sparkling Happiness Faerie Flower cannot be worn by my UC Grey Gelert but instead of saying that when I try to add item to an outfit, it just says "No data yet".

    I'd like to see it say "cannot be worn" to stop confusion. In my case, stop me buying an item!

    The UC pets are a bit tricky in this case. Strictly speaking, the server can’t know that a UC Grey Gelert can’t wear this item until it sees how it looks on a non-UC Grey Gelert, then decide whether or not the zones it uses for the non-UC Grey Gelert are restricted for UC pets. That is, for all we know, the item uses a background zone for Grey Gelerts and therefore works for UC pets. Without the data, we technically can’t tell.

    A human being might be able to make pretty good guesses about this sort of thing, but I don’t like the idea of guessing and I don’t like the idea of a human being manually curating the data — part of why I’m able to maintain Dress to Impress alongside a full-time student workload is because the site handles all its data automatically, and I’m hesitant to…

  15. an option to filter out items which would replace currently worn items so that it only shows items which can be added to the current outfit

    for instance, my draik was wearing a necklace, but wings i gave her replaced it. through experimentation i found a necklace which could be worn together with them, but it would be very convenient to be able to hide all items which would disrupt the current outfit, and much more convenient for putting together scenery!

  16. Please fix it so I can add stuff to my list. There is literally nothing on it and when I import it from my closet it does nothing.

    Had I known if I removed everything I'd never get to add it again unless I do it manually, I wouldn't have deleted everything. Make it so we can re-add stuff because it's horrifying to remove almost 2k items just to find out you have to re-add them manually.

  17. My idea is that you should buy one of my Resistance Battle Visors.

    I see on your "what if" section has the Resistance Battle Visor. I happen to have 2. ?

  18. Soliciting Donations

    Next time you solicit donations please consider offering Paypal as an option. That's the only way I participate in this type of situation.

    I hear ya :/ We were considering PayPal for accepting donations, but ended up choosing Stripe as our primary donation method because it’s easy to integrate and because it’s well-trusted in the developer community—and because we’ve heard too many horror stories of small organizations having their PayPal accounts locked down when they suddenly start receiving a bunch of transactions. Scary stuff.

    We mention on the donation page that we’ll accept PayPal donations manually, and we’ve had a few folks take us up on that, but it’s definitely a higher overhead than I’d like :/ Mostly, I just wish that I trusted the world’s biggest payment processor a little bit more.

  19. fix a bug

    Hello I was wondering if you would fix this? Royalboy and royalgirl myncis come up as unconverteds when you select that as the pet you would like to customize.

    Strictly speaking, this isn’t a bug per se. It’s just a feature not yet implemented. Given how we download pet type data from Neopets.com, we have no indication of whether or not the data is for a happy female, sick male, unconverted, etc., so the gender/emotion states are listed in the order we discovered them. Choosing a different gender/emotion state should solve the issue. (There is a known bug in IE with changing gender/emotion states that will ideally be resolved by the time we move to the new server.) The fix for this issue would be the idea of better organizing pet gender/emotion states, and it’s still on our radar as a major feature request :) Thanks!

  20. Outfit thumbnails glitch

    Outfit thumbnails are not saving - please fix :)
