I was just using this feature for a couple of my commissioners and I noticed a
few downfalls, though I do love the idea in concept and the clarity of design.



I don't know if this has been suggested yet, but the "Collections" feature definitely has to have a request option.
Without a request (i.e. a person seeing a gift or commission which is done for them) users will have to sit down
and write out a private message every time they would like to add something to their collection. I think, they
as commissioners, and I as an artist, would definitely prefer a click-and-go solution to this.

It would also be really nice if they had Collection Folders so you can group characters and 'like art' together.

I saw a few people suggest that they'd like collection folders / art to appear on their front page. I agree with this
sentiment as long as it's a feature that can be turned off and on.

Thanks so much guys!
Really enjoying the site so far.

Agreed! At least one artist has uploaded commission work for me, and I'd love to be able to just click a button for both our convenience.

Yeah, I've suggested a request feature. I thought there was one already and was going bonkers trying to find it. I did end up having to PM the artist and asking them to send me a thing so I could add it to my collection.

I can imagine that some users might be dicks and overwhelm an artist with bogus requests though.

Or have the option to put collection images under a certain character profile. That would be awesome.

I'd actually like a variation of that for character profiles - I'd like to be able to select either an existing item in my gallery or collections, OR upload from my hard drive.

A sort of collection folder would be nice, actually. That is after having the collections added to your page you can organize them as you please.
