Dress to Impress

Hey there! So you’ve been using Dress to Impress? What sort of brilliant ideas have you had lately? :)

  1. 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?

  2. Newly imported items

    When you import your items from pets could you take us to a spot where we can sort them, right now I have to go through all of my items to find the new ones

    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 :)

  3. 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.

  4. Search customisations by species

    Search customisations by species, like if I'm looking for ideas for my woodland peo, show me the saved woodland peo customisations.

  5. Mark/delete accounts of people who are frozen or gone for more than 60 days on their linked neopets account

    Please. I do so many captchas trying to see if anyone owning the items I want actually still has an active account.

  6. 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!

  7. Have each list be collapsible - maybe have a setting where certain lists could start collapsed when you load your items page?

    I like that you can collapse "Items You Own," but I have some NP lists mixed in with my NC lists that I don't always want to view when I load my Items page. It would help to be able to individually set those lists to say collapsed when I load the Items page! :)

    DTI is a fantastic tool - just came back from hiatus and am absolutely WOWED by how well the site caters to users' needs!

  8. Provide the option to create lists for outfits.

    The lists would work pretty much the same way as lists for items. I'd love to categorize my outfits so I could separate incomplete outfits and complete outfits, serious outfits and fooling around outfits, etc.

  9. let us import to our items list using a text list!

    The list of items can be separated with 1 item per line.
    This shouldn't be too hard to implement, right?

    And it should be very useful for people making (large) wishlists, because you don't generally own the items on your wishlist, and therefore would not be able to get the data from the closet/SDB

    Hmm, interesting. Are you importing from a particular source, or would this just be an easier way to create the list in the first place?

    I like the thought, but it’s a small feature that only a handful of users would probably end up using, and features need to fight both for development time and for the right to be permanently maintained :/

  10. Allow us to order our lists

    I think it would be very useful if we could order our lists, so that they would appear in the order that we choose, and not alphabetically...
    And bulk moving items from one list to another is a must!
    Though I think you're already working on it...
    However, I think in general you are doing great work!
    Yay for importing!!!

    Yep, actively researching how to rework some of the Your Items section :) I’ll keep sorting in mind as I push ahead—thanks for the heads-up, and glad to hear you’re enjoying the site!

  11. Outfit searchbox on front page

    So many people on the neoboards use DTI to share customisations. Since we can't link directly to DTI, everyone posts the DTI outfit number. I think it would be great if there was a search box on the front page so we could enter the number and be taken directly to the outfit; instead of always having to type it in the url.

    Hmm. I’m thinking about this one… on one hand, it sounds decently useful. On the other, space on the homepage is very valuable real estate, and a feature needs to be very important and fit the UI well to make the cut. Thoughts on where it would go? There’s no natural place for it as-is…

  12. I can not see the new items again. The new items are just blank on internet explorer.

    I have had this problem before and you fixed it almost immediately. I hope it's fixable again. Thank you for your timely response! YOU ROCK1

    Hm. And I think last time we did this, I did literally nothing and it just started working again _; All I can think to suggest is to give the page a hard refresh with Ctrl+F5 and see if that helps :/

    In general, bug reports should go to webmaster@openneo.net, whereas this forum is reserved for new features and the like :)

  13. Have filters for non-/animated items, and a drop-down list for the items that can be bought at certain shops (eg. Uni Clothes, etc.)

    Basically that, a filter to see which items are animated (like glimmering wigs, moving wings, etc.), and another one that filters clothes by shop (if you, for example, want to make a full steampunk-themed outfit with items only from Cog's Togs).

    Hmm. My big requirement for features is that they be entirely automatable. Animation seems like it could be but it’d be tricky. As for shops, I’m not sure. I’ll keep an eye on it. Thanks!

  14. Unwearables addable to TLs

    Please add the possibility of adding unwearble nc items to our tradelist. For example: Fortune Cookies, Caps, GBCs, etc...

    Interesting. I feel like this would be a very helpful feature for trades, but I’m a bit concerned about how it would play out on the rest of the site: since many features on the site depend on the fact that all items are wearable, quite a few areas would have to be modified to take into account the possibility of unwearables :/ Thanks for the heads-up, and I’ll be sure to let you know if this feature goes live :D

  15. Newest-oldest filter!

    What if for the your outfits section, you could sort them newest-oldest or oldest-newest? Kind of to see you progress or something, because that would be awesome! ^^

    Hmm. Sounds like a good idea to me, though I’d wonder how this would interact with starred outfits: right now, starred outfits float to the top, so, if I sorted newest to oldest, would stars still go on top?

    Anyway. Since outfits can largely be managed by naming and starring, I count this as a low-priority feature (meaning it really isn’t likely for the next few months—busy schedule, long to-do list, all that stuff :/), but I like it. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks!

  16. limit items you own to separate lists (by account)

    I have different closets for different accounts, but when I want to look up items I own, it gives me items from all accounts. I separated the items by accounts already, into different lists. Is it possible to only see items from one account when I'm trying to dress a pet from that account?

  17. Allow Sharing of all Outfits

    Like, have a link to all outfits on an account. I saw an issue in a past suggestion about idea-stealers, but it would be hard to steal ideas if the url was something like "http://impress.openneo.net/user/fg9iVD8y9Jy7kp".

    Well, for what it’s worth, my records indicate that nobody’s been randomly entering outfit IDs this week to steal ideas, so that’s nice. I’ve thought about introducing outfit privacy settings, but I usually reach the same conclusion: privacy settings are too complicated a solution to what’s currently a very small problem.

    It’s also worth noting the recent trend on the Neoboards to refer to an outfit by its ID number. It’d be nice to keep that process simple.

    Still, I’ll keep this in mind. If we ever change how outfits work, like by creating a list of recently created outfits for folks to browse, we’ll have to add privacy settings, and obfuscated URLs might be a good option. Thanks :)

  18. In the item search, sort by newest items first instead of alphabetical.

    It would be nice to see all the new toys TNT has released, up front, ready for playing with...o3o

  19. Save my pets' names

    Save my pets' names so I don't have to type them in every time i open up DTI to model some stuff from someone's tradelist or whatever.

  20. Enable a 50x50 preview

    I always like to see how my pet will look in the 50x50 box (the one that appears on the neoboards under the avatar), ie how much of the background is shown and all.

    Hmm. I’ve bounced this idea ‘round my head a few times, but never quite got ’round to doing it because I want it to work without requiring manual input, and I’m not sure how to automatically discover how the 50×50 preview crops a new body type.

    Thanks for keeping this on my radar, and I’ll let you know if anything changes :)
