  1. 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.

    • 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 :/

      • mark users as inactive

        I would like an easy indicator for users who are not active on the site. Sometimes when looking for trades, I go to mail a user and find they have been frozen or haven't logged on neo for a long time. If you could grey out the usernames of inactive users (such as those who haven't logged on to DTI in 6 months) in the "n users have this item up for trade" that would be incredibly helpful.

        • 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!

          • 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…

            • 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!

              • 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

                • 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!

                  • 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 :)

                    • 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

                        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.

                        • Add Petpet's to a section of the closet.

                          It's hard enough to find the perfect petpet to match my Neopet, but it's even harder to find one who matches the coloration of the customisation I chose. If you could add a 'closet' of all petpet color combinations, then we could see the neopet and the petpet side by side in the same window, with what I'd like my Neopet to be wearing.

                          • 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?

                            • Add a "non" wearables category?

                              I get that it's "Dress" to Impress but lots of wearables come from tokens, caps and cookies. I think adding a non-wearables category would bring even more Neopians to this site as right now, JN can show those. Just a thought. And omg, thank you so much for the Mass Move option!! You did a great job with that.

                                This one’s interesting because it could be solved in two ways, both of which aren’t feasible yet: we could either have a team of trusted people manually maintain the nonwearables list (but we have no team :P), or we could integrate with another item database (but the two big ones are each no-go for their own respective reasons xP). If either of those changes, I’m down for this feature :)

                              • New List Status: Lending

                                Currently, we have private, public, and trading

                                Dyeworks lends often fall under trading even though the originals aren't actually UFT. This is frustrating when trying to hunt down the originals.

                                I'd love to see a Lending status for items that can be borrowed but aren't meant to be permanently traded.

                                • See customs for pets the same species and color you are dressing up

                                  That would be cool for inspiration if you wanted a new pet and weren't sure how to customize.

                                  • Special search to view the 100 newest items

                                    I'd love to be able to mass add, view and tinker with newly added items quickly, So having a search function with the 100 newest items sorted by date would really help. This short list on the home page is nice, but it's just too few. Thanks

                                      Hmm. It seems reasonable to be able to sort both by name and by date. The biggest challenge would probably be working it into the existing UI in a consistent way without further cluttering the search navigation controls. Low priority, but I’ll keep it in mind :) Thanks!

                                      I have the items I own listed per account because I have several sides with pets I love to customize. It would be great if along with the option to "only include items you own" you could also choose only include items from a certain list of items you own~

                                      • Easier viewing of items?

                                        It's a pain to view each items 9 at a time, especially when there's over 400 pages... selecting the number to view per page would be perfect.

                                          It’s actually not 9, exactly. It’s the number of items that will fit on one line given your current window size. More than one line would start getting clunky and take up more space than is feasible, right?

                                          Actually, the first day that the new site design went live, it wasn’t the magic fullscreen thing we see now. Instead, there was a scrollbar, and scrolling down from the preview section would reveal a good 4 lines of items for a total of 28. However, users complained that they preferred the fullscreen style so as to avoid excessive scrolling, so we adjusted the design to match users’ preferences.

                                          So, I like the idea of being able to view more items at once, but I’m not sure how that would be feasible while still maintaining a reasonable amount of screen real estate for the preview itself. Any thoughts on that? :/

                                        • Can you create a remove all button? And multiple pages?

                                          I see that a similar suggestion was made over a year and half ago, but it's still under review.
                                          I bring up the suggestion once more, since I know a lot of people would rather just redo their list from the very beginning than go through hundreds (or thousands in my case) and delete them one by one. Unfortunately for me, since my list is so large, the page itself won't even load for me to try and delete them one by one.
                                          A remove all button would be a great feature to have.

                                          And as I've mentioned the lack…

                                            Yes, indeed. Pagination and bulk management are high on the todo list—but it’s a big task on a long list, and my time is way more limited than I’d like :/ Sorry for the ridiculously long wait, and I’ll keep you posted.
