Show Promotions as a Tab on a User page

NYVivian Vee 4 years ago updated by Neotheta 4 years ago 9

I like the idea of sharing other people's art that I like. However, in the current setup, it simply shows as a boring old message that'll get buried under other activity. I think it should be introduced as an additional tab next to my artwork so people can see a gallery view of the artwork I'm promoting. :) That way the promote button can be more effective.

Hey all!


As soon as we figure out what we're going to call Favorites and Promotes (and what their future will be.... see here: https://support.furrynetwork.com/topics/577-promotes-and-favorites-are-confusing/ ), we'll be adding Promotes (or favorites, or whatever they end up being called) as a tab on people's Profile pages........ once we've figured out what we're going to do to Profile pages (see here: https://support.furrynetwork.com/topics/1116-profile-page-improvements/ ).


Sorry to put this whole thing in limbo until two entire other features get figured out.... but suffice to say, there'll be a way to see what people are 'promoting' (or faving, or whatever XD)

This is a great idea, it'll make it easier to see what your friends and followers have shared via the promote button.

Something along the lines of "Recently Promoted" and it will show all the the art the people you follow have promoted.

Yup. I'm interested in promoting cool character designs, other people's commission info and just stuff I really like. It'd could effectively be the same thing as a gallery, X)

Yes, I was really disappointed to see that I can't look at other people's promotes. What's the point of calling it "promoting" if no one sees it?

Completely agree with this. It is important to have something more than just a little note that will get buried very quickly.

But then this way favouriting becomes redundant and this will become the new elevated favouriting method.

Not necessarily, I feel favorites are a way of saving the submissions that you like for later, while promotes are more of a way for you to show appreciation of the submission to the creator and others.

Promotes also need to desparately go back to whats new feed, thats how I found so many new artists on the site and helped a lot of my talented friends to get visiblity. It was the feature that made me originally love the whole site and now its gone D:
