Desired Features/Suggestions

Posted in

Hi! This is Green, new webmaster of Lolibrary.
Since we just rolled out a new theme and skin and some new features, I want to start up a discussion on new features that Lolibrary users would like to see, or improvements we can make.

Thanks very much and post away!

Question

I believe that this question must have been asked a thousand times, but here I am asking it... I believe there should be a cathegory so people can search for lolita styles... I thought that something like how we deal with colors (you can check the style that one particular dress belongs too... or even more, as some dresses sometimes are on the borderline of styles, like hime and sweet, or hime and classic) or with tags... sweet lolita, classic lolita, etc.

I suppose there is a reason why the styles are not added, so I am sorry to bother you ><.

Hi! Thanks for your

Hi!

Thanks for your suggestion. We prefer to let people decide on styles, as there are many different ways to wear an item, and we'd rather not force our definitions and our users' creativity. Thank you. :)

Brooches Tag

A tag for brooches?

The tags for brooches and

The tags for brooches and Soufflesong have been added. Please backtrack through the entries (as narfzz has said) to add them when you see the entries without the proper tags.

Thank you for your contribution!

I second this!

Soufflesong Tag

A tag for the Taobao brand Soufflesong. Its sub-brand is Neverland Lolita, so it would be useful to have all their products under the Soufflesong tag.

Hello, This is a great

Hello,

This is a great suggestion for the current website but we're hoping that once we move over to the new website that there would be an easier way to add tags as right now it's difficult to introduce new tags for all the brands. As someone would have to manually backtrack to re-tag items.

A plus-sized tag would be

A plus-sized tag would be nice.

http://lolibrary.org/apparel/clbubble-bath-shirring-pinafore-jsk Here's one it can be populated on.

Hello, We have actually

Hello,

We have actually discussed the use of plus-size tags for a while, but have decided against it for now. Once the new website is launched, hopefully our measurement search function will help with users looking for a certain range. Thank you for your comment.

Understood. I'll just comment

Understood. I'll just comment though that the measurements are often not enough. For instance Jewelry Jelly switching's listed measurements are 88bust\68waist and my plus-sized partner can comfortably wear it at 110\100. Unless the search can cover user measurements too I'd still like to say I disagree and think a tag is necessary.

Menswear Tag

A tag for menswear and unisex clothing (ex. ouji clothing).

I'll send this request over

I'll send this request over to the staff for a vote

Long Length Size Feature

I'd like to suggest a long length size feature for long length lolita dresses. This would be useful for tall lolitas.

These are previously mentioned suggestions that I second:
-Different currency options
-Option to pick the image of your prefered colorway on your wishlist/closet
-Option to sort the order your wishlist/closet items appear

I've sent over the request

I've sent over the request for a long length feature to the staff for a vote. As we are expecting upgrades to the search in the new version of the website, this feature may not be useful.

New tag

Could we have a tag for veils please?

Sorry I missed this comment.

Sorry I missed this comment. I've added veils to the tag list.

Can we add Leur Getter (an

Can we add Leur Getter (an otome brand) as a brand? Iirc, the main designer for Emily Temple Cute started this brand after leaving ETC.

Hello,Unless we have a

Hello,

Unless we have a dedicated contributor who will be adding all of the entries from Leur Getter, it will remain as a tag under Japanese Indie. Unfortunately, we are very understaffed right now.

Thank you.

New tag

Could we add a tag for gloves?

The following two tags have

The following two tags have been created:
- gloves
- Seashells

list of all approved tags?

Apologies if this is already located somewhere but I haven't been able to find one and I think it might be useful -- is there a complete list of all approved entry tags somewhere? (Or if there already is one, would it be possible to make it more visible on the site?) Over months of creating entries I have inevitably discovered there was a good tag for something that I didn't think of at the time I was making the entry.

Additionally, while I know users are able to click on a tag on an entry to see a list of all entries with that tag, adding that functionality to the aforementioned list of all approved tags might be useful too (if it's not an ungodly amount of work).

It would also be nice to see some items from Etsy shops start to get entries.

All the tags have been

All the tags have been created.

Users are welcome to add items from reputable Etsy shops that are specific to the fashion.

add another tag?

I'd like to suggest the tag "tassels".

The tag "tassels" have been

The tag "tassels" and "Whipped Cream" have been created.

FYI for requesting new tags: It would be very helpful if you see an entry with this new feature to comment/edit the entry, so that the tag can be populated. We've had to manually go through tens of thousands of entries to edit them with the new features, and it is very time consuming.

Thanks!

thank you :)

Sure! I generally edit entries I come across with new tags (especially if they have none at all) and will be sure to do that with these too. Thanks so much :)

Thanks very much!

Thanks very much!

More dresses

Hello. I like your site and the features you have so far, but perhaps you could add an option so that the colorway we want appears as the main image in our closet and wishlist. Also, perhaps have prices of the item in the original currency as well as USD and other common currencies. I think having a tag for the different Lolita styles of dress (such as sweet, classic, gothic, punk, hime, sailor, wa-lolita, qi-lolita, country, etc.) might be helpful as well as a way to select more than one feature when it comes to sleeve type, collar style, detachable bows, shirring, etc. Also, it might be nice to be able to organize the items in our closet/wishlist and move them in a certain order (such as matching pieces together, items most wanted at the top, etc.

What I would really like though is to add more indie brand dresses, especially from TaoBao (there are a lot of dresses from there that aren't listed here and they seem to be coming out with more and more nice designs recently).

~Thank you for reading (^_^) This would be much appreciated.

I would also like the feature

I would also like the feature of choosing which image is shown on the closet/wish list!

> What I would really like though is to add more indie brand dresses, especially from TaoBao (there are a lot of dresses from there that aren't listed here and they seem to be coming out with more and more nice designs recently).

Our users are welcome to add entries of items they'd like to see in the database. Please look through our FAQ to see how to make entries and get them approved.

Print images

I'd like to request a tag (and I would myself work on populating that tag) for prints that have a sample image of the fabric print design, like how Angelic Pretty often does with the multiple colourways in one image, or Metamorphose often has. My eyes aren't very good and I like to be able to see a good closeup of a print before I buy it because I often can't see it in the photos of the actual item, and I'd like to be able to find the items that have these images- I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Thank you very much for considering.

Add to list without notes

Sometimes I just want something and I don't want to have to write a bunch of freaking notes to save it to my wishlist. Sometimes I have things in my closet and I don't want to write notes either. Please make it possible to do this without having to put in notes at first. Since there's an edit feature, there's no reason for us to have to do this right out of the gate, especially since this site is difficult to use on mobile, which is where I mostly use it. :/

Organizable Wishlist

Hi! I think it would be extremely useful if we were able to organize our wishlists, so items of the same print could be together, or all blouses could be together, ect. It would be a lot more convenient than having things in a random order. ^^

I would love this too!

I would love this too!

Neckline measurement

A "Neckline" measurement input is needed,its frequently used in btssb & AP blouses and such.
Also what i think would be handy is if we also added the month in wich the item was released in,so users didnt have to search the whole year?

price

Hello! ^^ It'd be super helpful if we had this feature for the market price or categorization into rare items etc.

Meaning: If I open my Wishlist it is sorted from low to high rarity.
OR from low price to high price.

Would that be possible? I mean at least the option to mark items as common, rare or super rare? (>.<)

It would be super helpful if

It would be super helpful if front shirring and non-detachable waist ties were added as features.

Worn/Co-ord Photos

Hi Green,

Do you think it would be possible at some point to have a gallery of photos separate to the stock photos for each item, that users could upload worn/co-ord pictures to? Thanks!

I'm also in favor of this

I'm also in favor of this idea~

Easier to search...

Is it possible to add something on the Brands section that lets you order the items by rating, price, or item (ie: tops, jsk, op etc). Or is there already one and I'm completely blind lol?

It would make looking around much easier. Less endless scrolling...

Hi. You might want to

Hi. You might want to consider using Apparel search instead of using the brand list: http://lolibrary.org/apparelsearch

Different Currency?

Maybe I'm confused, but a lot of what I add isn't in yen, but I don't know how to change the currency.
Perhaps make it changeable?
