Some Changes, Additions and Worked in Feedback on the Community Site


Over the last days we've gone through your comments and started working on your feedback. In this article I am just summing up the first things we did – thanks again for all your feedback and keep it coming!

Trying to be that fast working in your feedback…

To make the Activity page a bit less crowded and easier to use we’ve created three tabs: “All activity”, “All activity by others” and “All activity by you” – this way you can see more easily what’s been happening in your home.

To make the selection of photos in Competitions and LomoWalls easier, we’ve included two links: “older photos” and “newer photos” (right above the scrollbar) – so if you see ten photos on one page and you want to see the next ten, just click “older photos” or “newer photos” to scroll to them.

The header menu is now less nervous (or let’s say more forgiving when the mouse leaves the area by some pixels) – this should make the navigation easier.

That’s it for now. But expect even more features very soon – it has something to do with LomoWalls. And comments. And likes. Need more clues?

    I was wondering what's the difference between Activity and Notifications? my mouse goes right up Notification every time and almost never on Activity, then, why the three new categories of research are not implemented in the Notification too?

    Maybe once a week you can publish a news article, with the coming articles that will be published the next week. Or do it monthy. That way it will be kind of a teaser but it will also inform us the status of our articles we have written. Or email us and tell us the order our article will be publish. I know yall keep telling us to just wait, but my piggies expire date keeps getting closer and closer. It would be less stressful for us if there was some kind of notification method. I used to get an email saying that my article is being reviewed and the date it would be published, but I did not receive one the last 2 articles I wrote. - @recurving, Thanks for all the things you have done so far with this website, It makes everything so much better

    @superlighter: notifications are shown in activity… we just can't say 10 new activity – though english is not my mother tongue this just seemed wrong to me… :)

    @recurving thank you so much for the new way to choice pictures during the wall building! but I'm still have this bug, draggin pictures on the wall and after release them on the wall pictures turn black!
    I've noticed this to but no replay and the bug is still here! this happen specially when the picture have different shape and size of the destination "brick" in the wall.

    how about a function that you get a notification if someone commented on an article... e.g. now it is sooooooooooo interesting to see what people write on the guess the mystery product.... so now only the one who wrote it gets the notification... if you could sign up for articles you like, that'd be great

    nice one @recurving you got 5 piggies from me - ok, make that 10 :)

  21. jaalvarez

    Yep, thanks to recurving and everyone involved, the site is really cool. And recurving, you're right about the 'you have new activity' thing, it sounds weird!!

  27. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    Hi @recurving wonderful work here!!! There are a few things that work weird with Windows 7 and Internet Explorer, at least for me :)
    - cannot LIKE an article, click does nothing
    - cannot LIKE AND GO TO NEXT PIC, doesn't go to next page
    - when clicking on the MARK ALL ANOTATIONS AS READ button, a download box opens and offers to download a file. I click cancel. Then when going on another page the notifications are marked as read.
    - cannot FOLLOW people, click does nothing

    cheers, I love the new features!

  28. recurving
    recurving ·

    @elvismartinezsmith: thanks for the report, gonna look into that!
    @panelomo and @jaalvarez: haha, i would share the piggies evenly with the team… though we won't be allowed to spend them – so more for you!
    @satomi: this is my goal :)

  29. recurving
    recurving ·

    @elvismartinezsmith: all the internet explorer bugs should be fixed!

  30. kylewis

    Yeah thanks for all the great changes
    I love the idea of a piggy transfer... piggy gifts to friends especially if you have only a few that may be wasted!!!

  31. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    thanks @recurving, it works much better. but I just see I can't like an article, and also browsing with the keyboard doesn't work.

    thanks again and good luck

  32. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    but it works fine with Firefox

  33. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    to finish, the 'I like this photo' button doesn't work on IE

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on won't be reflected on and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Pinhole master Justin Quinnell invites you to celebrate World  Pinhole Day

    Although already equipped with a degree in Photography, Justin Quinnell got into pinhole photography a little over a decade ago, when he became the Head of Photography while teaching in a college in Bristol, United Kingdom, a time when "one person would have a fully manual Zenith B beside another with a fully automatic camera. " We've had interviews with Justin in the Magazine through the years, and one thing hasn't changed: his enthusiasm for pinhole photography.
