  1. Keep a link for donations in your contact section-someone asked me how to donate today

    Hi,
    I know you do a campaign, but how about a link down in the fine print that says Contact: suggestions, questions comments bugs? Add donate and a donation link! Thanks Mattchu.

    • add mass list editing functionality

      Heya!

      First, I need to tell you that your site is AMAZING and you provide an invaluable service for all Neopians!

      I'm wondering if it would be possible to add the option to "mass edit" our lists. What I mean is, right after importing our stuff, some of like to sort our items into categories or sublists of some sort and it would awesome to be able to add all the lists at once from one interface rather than having to go back to our item page and click "add list" every time. This would also help when we want…

      • Would it be possible to also add the flash/image toggle button to item previews?

        As a frequent mobile user, I really appreciate being able to see the non-flash images in the customization mode on my phone (thank you!). I would also find it useful if the same image toggle feature were available on item preview pages to save me the time of having to select "customize more" and choosing the pet species while using Safari. Thanks for reading! :*

        • Would it be posible to have a Chinese version of DTI?

          I'm a Chinese player and I think it would be awesome to create a Chinese version for the site. I don't know how many Chinese players still plays Neopets in these days and I'm not even sure if they will be used to browsing a foreign fan site as opposed of their favorite Chinese online forums. But then I think it doesn't hurt to have a new language added to DTI right? I can do the translations and even provide traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese translates. I have an outfit with Chinese characters in the name so I guess it…

              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!

            • 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. :)

              • 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

                    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

                  • 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.

                    • 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!

                      • 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

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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!

                                      • 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. ?

                                          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.
