  1. Filters for unwearable/retired items

    I bought two Lishas Glasses, which were unwearable for the pet i bought them for. I mean, Come ON!

      Huh. Are Aishas really no longer able to wear Lishas Glasses? This is the first time I’ve ever heard of a wearable being retired. In what way is the Aisha unable to wear them? Does it return an error message (if so, what?), or does the item just not appear as an option?

      Bear in mind, though, that Lishas Glasses are a species-specific item, and I’m of the opinion that Dress to Impress makes this very clear by only listing previews for Aishas on the item page. While the “No Data Yet” on the main wardrobe page might be overly optimistic in this case (strictly speaking, TNT could have made ‘em wearable for other species), the only promise Dress to Impress makes about its data is that, to the best of our knowledge, all previews are up-to-date. When we don’t have preview data for a certain item on a…

    • Highlight trade matches more obvious

      Wishlist/Tradelist matches are highlighted too subtle in my opinion - I could scroll faster through huge lists if those highlights were more obvious, i.e. a brighter highlight color or different font color.

      • add a way to move items from one list to another.

        I added all of my items to 'items I own'. Now in order to add them to a trading list. I have to readd them all and go through and delete ones that I don't want on that list. 250+ Items on my entire list and 25+ I want to single out.

          They can be moved by drag-n-drop, but I agree that it’s too painful. The whole items section in general is in line for an overhaul, so I’ll let you know when that’s ready :/ I can use database magic to help with bulk operations if you’d like—drop me a line at webmaster@openneo.net if that sounds helpful :) Thanks!

        • Set entire profile to private.

          I'm using DTI only to dress my pets and I don't want any of the items to be in a tradelist. Is it possible to set my entire profile to private instead of selecting all the categories?

            Hmm. Like, you often create new lists, and would like them to be Private by default instead of Public?

            I think this use case is niche enough that I don’t wanna add a whole new setting for it, but I’ll keep it in mind. For what it’s worth, even a Public list will only show up if someone looks for you in particular; it won’t appear in the Infinite Closet lists of “people who own/want this item” :)

          • Where do the pets from your http://impress.openneo.net/ homepage come from?

            When you first get to the http://impress.openneo.net/ homepage there are neopet "models" being displayed. Where do you find these? My pet is on here and I did not submit it. So do members of openneo just rip off other people's pets for the world to see? MY brilliant idea is that you stop doing this and only use the pets people put on this site that they create. I don't like my customization that I've worked so hard on being copied by everyone who can see.

              Oof, sorry ’bout that. These names are periodically gathered from the Customisation Spotlight winners, so, hey! Congrats on winning :)

              We have a few proposals in mind for how to better use that space, since it gets out-of-date all the time, anyway. In the meantime, if there’s a particular pet you’d like removed from the list, hit me up at webmaster@openneo.net and I’d be glad to remove it.

            • Use Neopets image for donor list

              When we donate, we are given the option to paste in the DTI URL or choose from our saved customization. But, some Dyeworks static image on DTI is the original color. I f we can use the Neopets cp image

              http://pets.neopets.com/cpn/Megaura/1/5.png
              becomes
              http://pets.neopets.com/cp/fvbt3j7c/1/5.png

              Users should be aware of the cpn and cp URL links. cpn would constantly update to the current customization while cp is one unique URL and won't change the image even if the user changes the current customization. They would have to use the cpn to get a new unique URL for the new image. The 5.png…

                Oof, yeah, we don’t have a good fix for the Dyeworks issues yet :( We can fix the images by taking screenshots manually, but there are thousands of them, so that’s not a super sustainable fix.

                But, if there’s a particular image that you’d like fixed for the donor page, I can help with that! Hit me up at matchu@openneo.net and I’ll take a look.

                Sorry for the delay, and thanks for being patient — I let my inbox get away from me last month, but today I’m cleaning it all up! :D

              • Colour code the items to represent which primary zone it affects.

                Eg. yellow box for FG items, blue box for BG items. This would be especially helpful for the BG items, FG, HFG and LFG as it will help us in layering. :)

                  Ooh. I’m not sure colors are the best way to do it, but I like the idea of grouping the closet by type. I’d need to play around with the UI to see if I like it, and it’d probably require a non-trivial amount of coding to make it happen, but I’ll keep this in mind :) Thanks!

                • Choose to show certain lists or not when comparing to others lists.

                  Hello! I recently added my closet items and made a list named "Closet". I am only wanting to offer it for certain items, so if I'm looking for something that I am not wanting to offer my closet items from, I cannot click compare and see only my trade list. I wish there was a button that you could check or uncheck to see certain lists from your own trade list.. if that makes sense. Or perhaps colour code so that I can make my closet list a different colour so I know right away if I don't want to…

                    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!

                    • Listing Average NC Trading 'Values'

                      Folks on the NC trading board are always linking to miscellaneous guides based on values of particular items. Since most values are based on a "number" of caps and many times on opinion or experience, perhaps an average value can be calculated from numbers given by users of DTI.

                      A good metaphor/example would be the games' difficulty meters on Neopets; they can be altered by users, and the average difficulty is shown.

                      I believe this would come in handy for NC traders, since the values are determined by the entire community.

                        Interesting. I’ve thought through this before, and I like the thought, though I’m hesitant to depend exclusively on crowdsourcing for this sort of information. Whereas wearables data can’t be forged, an entirely user-based system for pricing data could be much more easily gamed, and there would be strong incentive to do so if the feature actually became a widely-used resource. And, given that we’d have significantly fewer contributors than the Neopets difficulty bar, our signal-to-noise ratio could easily get way out of whack. The only way to ensure the integrity of the data would be to have a staff of users who maintain it, and I’m not in a position to do that kind of recruiting at this time :/

                        Regardless, I’ll keep this in mind, and I’ll let you know if someone comes up with an effective system for keeping track of this sort of data :)

                        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.

                            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!

                              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’ve passed on the message to TNT, and the issue should hopefully be resolved in the near future. Thanks!

                            • change the dress import such that it will also detect which pieces are no longer there

                              I love the dress import and it's great that it updates the figures for the pieces that I currently have in my closet. However, I noted that for the pieces that I had removed from my closet on Neo, the importer does not correct them and remove them from the closet page here as well. Can you add this function please? Would be great if you can! Thanks for the site btw. :)

                                I’ve never really been sure how closet imports should work :/

                                A few scenarios in which this model would get complicated:

                                • The user imports their closet, then their pet starts wearing one of those items, then the user imports their closet again. Should the worn item be removed?
                                • The user manually adds some items, then imports their SDB, then imports their closet. Should any of the previously added items be removed? (This can kinda be resolved by tracking how each item was added, but that feels shaky and sounds like it might lead to even more strange cases.)
                                • The user has multiple Neopets accounts, and imports the items from all these closets. Should any items be removed?

                                That’s not to say that these problems are unsolvable, but they’re definitely complicated. I think the current solution strikes a good balance between the actual use cases on the site (it’s generally…

                              • Add a Dedicated Closet List

                                I would love a way to mark a list as my "closet," or to have a dedicated "closet list." I'm specifically thinking about this in terms of customization. When I want to plan outfits for my pets, I can only search "Items I own" or "Items I want." It would be great to have an "Items in my closet" option, so that I'm not customizing with a mix of my closet and up for trade items, which are both marked as "Items I own."

                                • make neohome previews

                                  it could be like this site but with neohome items instead. we could be able to put together one before buying all of the items.

                                    I’ve thought about it, but I don’t think demand is sufficiently high to justify the work that’d go into it :/ It’d take some seriously overwhelming demand on this request for this to happen, but I suspect that it’d be more helpful for me to focus on the DTI to-do list :)

                                    Hello, the Damask Lamp Garland can be previewed on UCs, but cannot actually be equipped - would it be possible to disable the previews? That could help out a few traders in the future :3

                                        When people request this feature, usually what they’re really looking for is a way to ignore items that their pet can’t wear, and DTI supports that very well: “blue species:acara” returns items containing “blue” that fit an Acara.

                                        If you’re really, truly looking for items that fit all species, the query “species:acara species:aisha” is a decent hack: if an item can fit more than one species, it can fit all of ’em.

                                        I think than when importing to petpage/getting the code, it would be nice if we can chose to get only NC items or only Neopoint items. It would be so much easier to create a NC tradelist then using this new function.

                                          Well, today we did push out a new feature that allows users to choose which lists to export. If you keep NC and NP items separate—which I think most people do—that oughta do something for ya.

                                        • 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!
