Here's my big angry rant about features that are either poorly implemented or missing entirely from a site that claims to be an art site.
- Gallery on the profile page.
This is important people for anyone wanting to display their own/commissioned work.
- Notifications when someone posts a new picture
Could we have this on the top bar, maybe somewhere near the top where that notification bell is? instead of having to dive deep into the land of settings to find out that someone you have been following has been posting new stuff all day?
As it is i'm stuck with my current notifications. Someone followed me? Great! Can i cross that out now and be done with it? No? What sense does this make?
- Remove the social feed bar either entirely or let us hide it.
Let's face it, people are going to be coming here for artwork, they don't care that you ate a banana 2 hours ago or that you followed someone X hours/days ago. This feature servers no function or purpose being on the profile page. If you really, really insist this being a feature, put it somewhere else, not on your profile page.
-No big scroll-able headers
While this was fancy for the first few times i saw it, now it just irritates me since it takes more time to scroll down to another persons profile.
Next up, Browsing artwork.
-Remove the filter for popular, or at least have it default to fresh.
Just a big bear of mine as it promotes the already established artists over the newbies. From my observation, during the peak activity hours new submissions are still stuck with 0-2 views, at most. Of course there might be other reasons for that as well but having the new submissions hidden from sight by default surely isn't helping.
Clumping the images up to a tight no spaces grid saves space, sure but it also makes it less appealing to the eye, giving a disorganized feel to the whole page.
Now most of these are just things that annoy me, keep that in mind before publicly crucifying me.
