    I like the shiny new look :)
    Some things I noticed:
    - I can't comment on friends homes
    - I can't add new people as friends (or become a fan of new people)
    - I can't see the submissions to the comps
    Looking forward to the other features. 'Nearby' is a great one

    My articles are wrong. It shows two articles by pulex instead of mine. But yeah! This new look is great! :D

  3. spoeker

    ok I worked out the "comment on homes" thing and noticed that my own activity-stream isn't loading, but I can see the ones of my friends though...

    I cant leave people a message or respond to one as i used to do, but i have to agree, i like the new clean look!

  5. basterda

    Love everything about it. Esp. the SHOW ALL option in the articles' photos! And how we can see the usernames of those who liked our photos/articles. Real neat! :)

    Some notes:
    I like the design, but I can't see any "...likes this photo"-comments from other users

  7. graefin

    "Activitäten" should be "Aktivitäten" in German :)

    @spoeker: adding friends is back! we are currently migrating all events and messages, this might take a while – but once this is done the activity feed will work fine!

    I love the look of the new site. My only gripe - on an individual photo page there is a lot of vertical scrolling needed to see the actual photo - would be great if it was a bit higher up!

  14. toastiesarnies
    toastiesarnies ·

    Looking really good. I'm not sure about the white for the about section. Its the only section that seems inconsistent to the rest of the site. Magenta maybe? Apart from that you guys are cramming a lot of features in a clean easy to use design. Can't wait to see more! :-)

    i like the new look , but i found that the friends "counter" is wrong

    @bongofury: looking into it!

  17. cruesi

    i like the new look and the notification feature.
    there seems to be something wrong with the articles. those aren't mine that are showing up as my published articles.

  18. cruesi
    cruesi ·

    oh, it's showing me the right ones on the german site, but not on the international site.

  19. spoeker
    spoeker ·

    btw "aktuälste Fotos" should be "Aktuellste Fotos" on the local german site.
    and "recently liked photos" is a bit confusing. I thought these are the photos people liked in my home and not the one which I liked, cause we have the tab "likes" for this ^^

  20. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    everything seems allright except that the two articles on my home are not mine and all the likes are disappeared! :(

  23. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    I have the same bugs for months, I've been writing to LSI but no reply or when there is one reply, the problem continues and the communication ends.
    So, OLD (most important) bugs:
    - I didn't won 7 awards but 6, there are two badges that refer to the same competition, one with the wrong date;
    New bugs or mistakes:
    - Why on earth are in my lomohome translactions of my articles that I didn't made? It looks like they are mine when they aren't and since the link is broken, I can't even see if it is a good translaction. Either way I don't want them in my lomohome since I'm not the author of the translactions, I'm I the only one that feels this way?

    About the looks of the site, I really don't care anymore but it is cool.

  24. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    The "recent" activity in my home dates from 1year ago.

    - Recent Activity in the bottom of my home are old messages
    - How to comment on friends homes ?

  32. recurving

    @domyblue: right now just go into the activity feed or one's home if you want to leave him/her a message – but will add it to the cover of the homes!

  33. analogeyes
    analogeyes ·

    -no news feed?
    -'recent activity' is all from 6+ months ago (not really recent)
    -under 'recently liked' tab its all other peoples photos? isnt there a tab for that on the lomo home page already?
    -cant comment on homes
    -cant read there even a 'wall' to write on?
    -new home format is illogical and difficult to navigate

    FOR SERIOUS!? you have redone the site twice in the last 4 months or so. STOP. hire an interactive web designer, take your f'ing time, work out the bugs and THEN launch it. we are here because we like the lomography website, NOT because we are your beta testers. please take your time and actually do it right next time.

  34. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    i really like this new layout, but it will take time to adjust to it, since now we pretty much have to snoop around and find things again, i just wish you'd stick to this one and not do any more drastic changes for a long time, because i like feeling like i know where i can find everything, and i had gotten used to the last layout and now i feel like i have to go on a scavenger hunt again to understand everything... but don't get me wrong, the layout seems wonderful, and much more organized, it'll just take time to get used to it again. so please please pretty please, after you fix the bugs on the new layout, could you not change it again for a long time? Once I have time to try everything out I'll post my pros and cons ^_^.

  35. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    since we're in the whole business of re-doing and trying out new things, and we have that neat notifications button, may I suggest that you find a way to send us a notification when someone likes or comments an article of ours? Because sometimes people ask us questions and unless we are checking all of our articles every day we'll never notice someone is waiting for an answer on the article page...

  36. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    oh found something... how do I edit my about me section? and change my avatar?

  37. azzzy

    im with reneg88 on that idea, its really useful to do it.

  38. gnarlyleech
    gnarlyleech ·

    @reneg88 is right on the money

    Also. I cant see who liked my photos
    I can't see recent comments on my photos. Both should be on home page like before

  39. anselmialessandro

    I can't translate the articles
    And PLEASE... add the italian language.
    But I like the new style.

  40. elletra
    elletra ·

    I love it, but I have to admit it was confusing at first ;)

  41. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    a few more things and then i'm off to school and will continue searching later on:
    - the backend for submitting articles is pretty screwed up, it's like it has no layout.
    - When it asks you if you'd like to translate an article the word 'topics' is misspelled.
    - I like the way you organized our homes so that in each different site, they show the articles in the respective language... but I'm constantly active in both the international site and the spanish site, as I'm sure other users are in more than on site, and it would be nice if I could see ALL the articles someone has published in all of the languages together, so that I don't have to be changing from site to site to be able to find them. Not necessarily have it like that from the beginning because it looks nice and organized, but we should have the option. something like 'show all articles' or something like that and then have them all appear...
    - I really like the new layout in the magazine articles, how you've managed to connect nearby photos and nearby articles. and i also really like that you can see who's liked your article, i was always curious about that.
    - i love how the friends show on your page, with their big avatar as if they were photos ^_^
    - i love having the recent albums big on my home page.
    - the only things i would change about our homes, is that I can't find how to edit my 'about me' and my avatar, and to bring the activity feed back onto the main page like before, not just 3 random photos with one comment.
    - that would be all for now. thanks LSI for your hard work and dedication.

    Great, know my lomohome says 6 awards but there are still 7 when you check…! Really, should I laugh or cry? I'm with @analogeyes 100%. I'm starting to wonder what is the procedure to quit Yes, some of us really take this site seriously… :/

    the main homes page is showing recent activity from 'one year ago' and my home's recent activity is months old... can't find how to edit my home info/avatar either...

  46. recurving
    recurving ·

    @all: the recent activity takes some time to import – so it showed the older entries before (as we've started from the back).
    @saidseni: i've deleted your 7th award, might just take a while until the caches are cleared…
    @analogeyes: the recently liked tab are the photos you've liked, the ones that got liked most by others are the popular ones…

    we are sorry if there are still some bugs around – we are working hard fixing these and will constantly keep on improving the page.

  47. elletra

    the second 'i like this' button under the photos does not work, only the one between 'previous' and 'next' above the photos works; I miss the combined 'i like this & previous/next photo' button.

  48. domyblue
    domyblue ·

    @recurving Thank you, works fine!!! :) Love the idea of the 2 avatars and also that now, in the Homes of Lomography, there are also Lastest Photos and Lastest Users. But like kylethefrench, I can't find who liked my pix! At the begining I thought could be in my activity, but there are only my messages to my friends and their messages. In the activity page of others friends I find they have " XXX likes this photo", but are 1 year or 1 month old! I think when all data will be there, we'll be able to find all we are looking for! You are doing a good job, I know you are working hard !!! Community is super huge and of corse it takes time to fix everythings! We are the analogue community and we can understand it !!!

    I want the lab to resize my photos automatically to the 5Mb limit. It's tedious to make new copies of my photos at a lower resolution just to upload them. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I do like the site's new look though :)

    Any plan for a mobile phone version of the web site?

  51. recurving
    recurving ·

    @domyblue: i just liked on of your photos – does it show up in your activity stream? the likes are in the process of being imported (starting from the first ones to the last) – so sometimes really old ones might show up…

  52. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    I published a new album but it doesn't appear in the "most recent albums" and same problems as for @domyblue about the "likes" and it's not intuitive at all that I had to enter others people "activities" to leave a message, I'm going to prefere the old way...

  53. domyblue
    domyblue ·

    @recurving: Yes, it works fine ! I understand, don't worry, we all have a lot of messages and is a long work for you! @superlighter: I think you are right:)

  54. mephisto19

    where can i comment? where are the comments? where are the likes? why dioes it show so much activity? and where are my photos gone i uploaded today befor the change?

  55. mintography
    mintography ·

    This was mentioned in the first comment but not replied to.
    Not being able to see submissions to competitions is a problem. Even when I look at that photo in a comp it appears as if it hasn't been submitted.

    I also liked the "like and move to the next" feature. When I look through a competition or album I want to be able to like all my favorites while I move through it. The way the buttons are now makes this process awkward and will make me less likely to "like".

    In general I think it is going to take a bit to adjust to the new layout, especially because it seems like it wasn't ready to launch yet.
    I second @pamplemousse_mk2 's question - could this be leading towards a mobile site or lomo app?
    That would be fantastic.

  56. mephisto19

    @superlighter: Have you checked Current Site? Sometimes, with the other site I was without my choice surfing in Brazil language or Thai XD
    @antibiotyx: message box is in Activity, when you visit your friends home, from there you can post messages! To make new friends you have now the follow or unfollow button!

    -In the magazine, in the competion, is not possible to view others submissions.

  68. mephisto19

    the submission form was better... not only the number of shots (18) but also to sort after most likes and comments + the bigger preview... now it is so small... and i want a "next" arrow please in the submission form to go to the next six or 18 or whatever pictures, please

    @recurving: Thank you for your attention but you've deleted the wrong award. I have two oktokino memorial awards, you've deleted one of them but I won two, you can check the old site.

    I will try to explain the wrong award: I won the Oh So Natural rumble but the correct date is the one in the Site Rumbles badge, 16 Nov. 2008. So, the two badges refer to the same competition, that's what's wrong.

    Give me back my oktokino memorial award, please! Thank you! ;)

    I like the sliding pictures in the galleries of the magazine articles! Very nice! But the page is too "white" / empty. And how can I go back to the homepage / magazine once I am in the shop? Three activities in the "recent activities" in my home are not enough. Where can I find more messages and activities from people who visited my home?

  72. nural
    nural ·

    On Safari, I don't see the "vote I like this and go to next", that was a good thing to have!! Also, I'd really like to be able to see who liked my stuff... Can't we see the side in homes, with the "awards, photos, articles, etc" in all pages in a home? Thats all I can think of now...

  73. saidseni

    So, the Nearby function is basically the Lomolocations map, right? So how come there are no locations in Peru if I published 6 locations and there was another one by another lomographer?

    "vote i like this and go to next" was my favorite feature. Now it takes too long to go through other peoples pictures. It takes twice as long.
    Also it takes a really long time to get a notification of someone liking my pictures. Will this clear up after you finished uploading all the old data?

  76. kdstevens
    kdstevens ·

    I think the new Lomography is great. I especially like the "Activity" (or notifications) page where you can see what you've written to other people and vice versa. I miss the running list on my photos that others have liked or have commented on. I assume this is a feature that is being worked on and will become visible soon (or maybe I haven't found where to look for it). But, all and all, good job!

  77. catarella

    - My articles are still wrong. They have right already today, and are now wrong again.
    - In my recent activity I still don't have any likes, only messages. Also, the links in that page for articles that I translated are not working yet.
    - And I also think it was easier to choose the photos to upload when you could see more photo in the submission page.
    I guess that is all. =)

  78. megustastu

    - My articles are wrong.

    - Spinner 360 photos can't be bigger. They were be wider, would be nice to see them bigger again
    @all: if the language change without your choice, is easy to reinstated the language you need. Just put in the URL after lomography. (com or jp or the one you want) I had now my spinner album in different languages XD If you find "lost in translation" this works good:)

    Is there a place to see the recent photos of mine people just "liked" and not just the most popular? It used to be on the recent activity stream but now it seems to be only conversations on the activity screen and the "recent activity" is just the last three likes/messages... I don't think I like this feature without the photos in the activity stream, I mean the photos is like the biggest thing here and I used to love the mixing of conversations and photo "likes." I also wish the recent activity displays more than the last three. I do however love that the avatars and album covers and etc are larger mini photos, super!

    Good for the new avatars and new layout, clearer and easier to read..., the new friends list is better, some new functions as well.... I only regret the former submission form in the competition entries with the favorite's first.... Hope this new version will not be attacked by a lot of bugs and that it will be stable enough to not change again in a few months...
    In a way, it's always good to improve the site, but always when I get used to a version of the lomo site, there's again a new version change... sometimes stability is good too.... :))
    keep on the good job LSI! :)

  96. ali55
    ali55 ·

    the layout is nice and clean! but I liked the news-feed of showing who liked your photo - in this one you have to look at your pictures to see if there are any new likes....with the recent activity maybe include likes too as well as comments?

    the new friends page is cool, even if I'd like to have some latest picture/albums news of each friend on such a page...

And where the size infos about my own pictures when looking at them? But it's very cool to have the location map to look at in the albums and the nearby function! :)

    good morning everyone – thanks for your feedback so far, it helps us a lot! some things we've fixed: title and description should work again, shop links open in a new window and the shoutbox input field doesn't appear unless you are logged in…

  106. recurving

    @all: the newsfeed moved to the activity – see /homes/yourusername/activity. do you want this feed to appear on the cover of your homes (at /homes/yourusername)?

    @domyblue: now you can edit the birthdate again – and not have a negative age :)
    @all: articles should be fine again, we've cleared the caches, please take a look!

    @saidseni: gave the oktokino award back, sorry… :) about the other awards: so we should a) delete the "site rumbles" award and b) change the date of the "oh so natural" award to 16th november 2008 – right?

    Hello there:
    I like almost everything of the new site:
    -I like I can distinguish "private" messages from public ones
    -The new look of the friends page (with big avatars) is nice
    -Great to see who liked an article, and who has been recently visiting your home
    -I like that when someone comments your photos, you get not only the "XXX commented XXX's photo" but also you can read the comment itself from the home.
    -Finally, you get notified when an article is published. It's great.
    -A good idea: you can find what you wrote to other people in your own activity section. It was also a needed functionality before.

    What I would improve:
    -Every label related to the relationship I keep with anyone (e. g. "Is a friend of yours") shows in japanese.
    -I would put together ALL the articles written by a person, not separating the ones published on the international or the local sites.
    -I don't like so much the "Shop" link have moved to the 1st position. It is not a community first and a shop later?
    -I would show more Activity on the home, not only 3 notifications.

    I still haven't tested the submission or translation tools, but I'll comment after trying.

    In general, nice changes in look and functionality. Congrats and thanks for always improving!

    -If "People who have been active here recently" means recently messages or likes it seems doesn't work
    -Thanks a lot for fix my awards, I was wondering to know, where was the last one!

  118. recurving
    recurving ·

    @domyblue: we are on this issue!

  119. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    @beanieboi the Articles are OK now! one suggestion, why all this white and empty space? for example: each time I load a new picture in the photos page I must scroll down the page to watch it fully and doing this for an entire album it's really annoing! I think that a less dimensioned buttons (PREVIOUS PHOTO - I LIKE IT - NEXT PHOTO) or a different position and a more high position of the photo could be a better solution for a better and enjoyable navigation through the photos. (apologies for my monkey-English hope you understand me)

  120. recurving
    recurving ·

    @superlighter: great to hear… about the white space: we wanted the leave enough room for all the great photos – but still we think there is a lot of room for improvement and your feedback helps a lot… so spacing will be one of the next issues…

    and as a small teaser: expect a beta version of the lomowalls by tomorrow (the one feature i am really excited about)…

  121. gnarlyleech
    gnarlyleech ·

    Great work and thanks for the updates @recurving. BUT could you answer this please? Are you going to put back the "vote i like and go to next photo" function? I really liked that and it saves a lot of time while scrolling through pictures. -Thanks dude

  122. recurving
    recurving ·

    hey @gnarlyleech – just put it back into my local site, testing if everything works out and deploying it later… so didn't forget about this (as a lot of you liked it a lot)

  126. jblaze823
    jblaze823 ·

    A few questions I have asked myself in the last day or so...

    How do I know when someone has "liked" my photos now? Seems like the notifications in my home are gone or not as easy to find
    Where did the dimensions information go when I am looking at my photos? (this is helpful when submitting to competitions, to make sure the photos are the right size)
    Where did the link to download my own photos go? (extremely useful, hope this comes back)
    On the positive side I do like the bigger thumbnails and the new layout and design, very slick...

  127. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    @recurving thanx for the reply and...don't get lost in "spacing" :)

    about the lomowall: here is a sneak preview of what's to come:

  129. recurving

    @jblaze823: all your notifications moved to – in the account bar you should see a counter showing all new notifications – just click there to get to this section… but we still think about putting it back on the cover!

    - When I login I can see if friends likes my photos in Activity and Notifications, when I'm logout I can see in Activity also all my likes ...
    - Actually when I was login and writing message to friends, I saw in their Activity what they liked and what others like!
    We can see what we liked in "Likes" and in "Recently liked photos", maybe could be nice to have a quick way to see what our friends like! If is mixed whit our like, could be long to find them! Just an idea:)

  137. miss_lisa
    miss_lisa ·

    maybe I'm just blind but where can I see which people liked which of my photos? I can only see the messages in the stream, not the likes...
    apart from that I think the new site looks really great! :)

    By the way, I have a question, to @recurving or anyone who knows... where do we see the photo dimensions now? And if we are no longer able to download our pictures, we have to scan again the pictures we want to submit to the magazine...? 'Cause that's really bad...

  140. domyblue
    domyblue ·

    @recurving: "People who have been active here recently" is working fine in account with very few activity, maybe this is because you are moving huge data and update are slow ?!?!?!?
    I just had a like and wrote back, the avatar in this position from 2 became 3 including mine !!!

  141. domyblue

    Before it was easy to understand that "Homes › Countries › All users from ..." is the toplist of active uploaders, but now is not written any numbers of photos or album

  143. breakphreak

    late to the party, the thread is too long but probably someone already noticed that submission pages are not linked with the CSS (those that help us to submit new magazine articles). also, when I upload the pics, I see only icons of broken pics, not the icons of the pics themselves. I run latest Chrome beta version. in general: yep - the look&feel is much better then of the previous version.

  144. scorpie
    scorpie ·

    late to the party, too. generally, i like it. the "nearby"-feature is really cool!

    some things i miss:
    - in the "homes"-activity feed, it now reads "user_a liked this photo" and no longer "user_a liked user_b's photo" - i liked the extra-info
    - i love the notifications, but is there a way to mark old ones as "read"? because it says i curently have 406 notifications and it just keeps adding up, but almost all of them are old ones.
    - i think the homes itself feel very naked somehow. it's okay, but what really bothers me is the "recent activity" thing (which reads "(no reference available)" in the german version btw) - it's falling apart, visually. there's three columns each with my picture on the left, text in the middle and the avatar of another user on the right, but there is so much space between the elements (and so little between the columns) it's visually kind of hard to tell which parts belong together.
    - i miss the picture dimensions, especiallly since different competitions have different requirements. which leads me to: could you standardize those requirements? would make stuff easier
    - which leads me to: is there a way to replace a low-resolution picture with a high-resolution version of the same pic, without losing the meta-data and likes and comments? i guess it's not possible, but would be so cool.
    - when i flick with the "next album" button through my albums, the order is all over the place.
    - magazine/locations/map now redirects to magazine/nearby... which is a different map - can we get a map again, showing only locations, too?
    - are tags still case sensitive? because that's really impractical...
    - in the list of articles in our homes, is there a way to distinguish between original articles and tranlations? the're all in one list now, and i find that confusing.

    Hey RECURVING Im a great fan of the work you are always doing. You are truly fantastic! I love the new look! But I think you / we must simplify certain "things". In my opinion there is an excess of information "attacking" our homes. Just my opinion. Keep on the excellent work you are doing!
    PS: Im with STOUF when he says "fix the lab so that we can move more than one picture at a time..."

  151. mintography
    mintography ·

    I tried to look through comp submissions but it is pretty broken. Also the photo is much lower on the screen now due to the larger like buttons meaning I don't see the whole photo on my screen anymore without scrolling down making it very very annoying to try to look through a lot of photos.
    Please move the photos up and bring back the "like and move to the next" button!!!

  152. kvboyle

    Hi there, I love the new site, it looks wonderful (and Vicuna says we're going to have lomowalls again.....wooooohoooooo, must go and find out what he's been reading) but there's one thing that's a bit annoying - the photo position, ie having to scroll down to look at a portrait shot. Any chance of changing that? Otherwise, top work, ladies and gents!!

    on lomography.ES I can still read :
    "vgzalez さんとつながりのある方" instead of "vgzalez sigue a o es seguido por..."
    "vgzalezさんのフレンド" instead of "vgzalez es amigo de..."
    "vgzalezさんがフォローしている方" instead of "vgzalez sigue a..."
    "vgzalezさんをフォローしている方" instead of "vgzalez es seguido por..."

    and would be great to put together all the published articles, no matter if published on .es, .de, .com or whatever.

    I am with scorpie:
    "-is there a way to replace a low-resolution picture with a high-resolution version of the same pic, without losing the meta-data and likes and comments? i guess it's not possible, but would be so cool. "
    the whole change is great. I am happier than before!

    about the activity/message feature, I think that if you could leave a message to someone directly on his home page would be better, even if all the messages are to seen only on the activity page... but the message window could be easier and quicker to access when you're on a home without going to the activity page....

  166. vicuna

    Overall it's great. I just don't like that "Recent albums" is the first thing people see when they come to my home. The order of uploading is not necessarily the right order for my albums, so everything is wrong and confusing. Also it would be great if people could switch to he next page to see even more recent albums.

    a Bug: "like and next" button. i can like but i can't see the next. it opens to me that user's all photos page.
