Hey!! After a lot of great feedback and building with you guys for the past month or so, we're ready to let some more people on the site, we're gonna tell our newsletter and fb groups and such, so I thought I'd section off this area as a place we can discuss and highlight and suggest and so on.

One feature that I'm releasing tomorrow is stickers. You can give a sticker with a comment to a quilt, you get one sticker a day, it reloads at midnight, thought it'd be something fun to play with. tell me what you think, should be live soon!

Good luck with your launch.

Will there be someone to supervise me? I don't want to create a sticky situation. Bernice is still in Iowa at a retreat.

Stickers sound like fun! I really like the profile changes, so that our full name and email address is not displayed.

Thanks for all you have done with QuiltsbyMe! It is going to be a great resource when looking for the next project to do or to see how others have done different patterns.

It's one of those "subject to change without notice" things. :)

Can I have a Scooby Doo sticker? Or a Minion sticker?

Because in my head I'm still 5.

I'll be very curious to see how this sticker idea works. You all seem to be familiar with it. Also, is there going to be a place that we click on that takes us directly to the "Quilts by Me" gallery? Also, what does Al mean when he says "let some more people on the site?" What site is he talking about? I feel like I missed something or the lingo just isn't clicking with me.

OMG it's true now my real name is not shown, but my "alias" (aka Juliet) is! I love you guys! Thank thanks thanks!!!!

I have a question: can I upload quilted things (like for example zipper pouches made following Jenny's tutorials) or it it only for classic quilts (as I imagine) because I see that table runners and wall hangings are allowed, so... just curious!

Love the changes! Especially the name change. :) Thanks!

But . . .

Is it just me? My computer is not doing well, so it very well might be just me. Anyway, when I go to QuiltsByMe, the images are sort of a tad fuzzy. The images on my Kindle seem a bit better but my Kindle Fire is smaller than my monitor. The images in the forum and forum albums seem to be much clearer.

And when I upload something, it crops it so I don't see the entire quilt. Am I somehow auto-cropping?

I'm having the same issues - photos are fuzzy.

That's why I'm getting more done... don't o FB,or any of that stuff... left in the dust to "quilt"....:))

Babs, we should start a club for clueless people, you can be president, we could ponder the mystery of the sticker and take field trips to fabric stores.

I guess the sticker is to give it to, what you think is, the best post of the day or something like that.

Some of my photos ARE fuzzy that I posted. So it may not be your computer after all, just the quality of the photo or photographer.

haha, when would you give a scooby sticker? what would you say with it?

I'm joining the "clueless" club. Stickers? I've seen the Minions; GD made me watch the movie with them. (she's almost 20!) Made me crazy! She laughed. I'm still confused!

I finally found the gallery y'all were talking about on my own but hanks everyone for helping to enlightening us clueless people, just to clarify, I'm being facetious.

I am one of the clueless as well. By the time I figure it all out, things will change again.

For any that are confused, I think it's the "quilts by me" link at the top of this page.

I have that problem too. It zooms in and doesn't include the entire photo I downloaded. I don't like it! :icon_angry: I tried changing the photo size, but that didn't help.

Thanks, Gale! I was looking around for the link and didn't see it until you pointed it out.

Will you put the stickers in the groups, too? I requested a "like" button for both the comments and the pics in the group section, but didn't see a reply in either the "tell Missouri star" or the "Finishing group" thread. Nice work going on there.

I'm wondering why we enter fabric lines and tutorials if we can't see these details on a project. It would be helpful to see the information we enter on projects as we look at other projects.
Thanks ever so much for another way to see quilts.

I can see this details in the project I posted as a test. You need to scroll down and it shows this:
104101

I think if you cannot see these details in most projects it is because people didn't upload the data properly, selecting the options as they display. Most people write them down as a text included with the pic's description.

I'd like the ability to see all projects done with a specific pattern/tutorial.

For example, I would like to search for all Falling Charms projects.

My biggest suggestion, and I don't know if anyone else has suggested this...would to be to put the picture loading page first and the info second. If you are using a ipad...like me...I have to go in look at my pictures then back out and load comments then go on and re look at my pictures. Just a flow issue for me.

Same here. I haven't figured out how to get the whole photo to show.
