Re: THE PARTY THREAD

I think this is the only thread now that feels like "home"..Day 3 and I am still kinda confused by the new layout. Oh and the followers bit is so unneccesary.. 4 followers.. uh.. is that sad? lol.. I can't even tell who those 4 beauties are! Anyway This reminds me of Highschool (not fun). 

 

Feels like this thread really is keeping NBT alive for now..so thanks ladies, love you all 💕

 

 

 

 

 

 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

You have one more follower than me @Anewxa! Smiley Wink Smiley Very Happy 

Anyway, I've decided to not even pay attention to the whole follower thing. A lot of the profile links are not even working, so the follower numbers are definitely not accurate. If users could access each other's profiles, a lot more following action would be going on. I am still sad that we have this feature now. I have never been popular in any aspect of my life, so I don't think it will be much different on here. I know it shouldn't bother me, but it kind of does. 

 

 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

I liked it better on BT where we were all equal and no one was keeping score.  @lmi82  I'm afraid it's just going to create unnecessary friction. 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

Aww you're sweet @lmi82 ❤ I can't click on any profiles so far either. 

 

Yup I know what you mean.. I wish we had access to disable the feature..or they just reworded as "friends" again. I cringe at the thought that the number of followers will effect things on our profiles like going up from rookie etc..in that case I will be rookie for life lol. Also, what if we don't want someone to follow us (like a troll) unlike IG, we can't even block them eek. 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

I'm afraid of the possible friction, too @heartsmyface. Especially if the follower stats have anything to do with the ranking. Smiley Sad

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

I didn't even think about the trolls! Yikes! That would be awful @Anewxa. Smiley Sad

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@Anewxa@lmi82 Both your pages are showing up as a blank screen or I'd totally follow you twoSmiley Sad. The following thing is stupid.  I can't see any useful function of it other than to make people feel bad.  

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@Anewxa@lmi82 Omg i just checked again and I can all of a sudden follow you two!  Weird.  Okay so now that I'm following you...what happens differently?  Did anything change?  Do I have better access to your posts or something?  So confused. 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@heartsmyface It really is stupid and I know it will totally bother me even if I say it won't. I preffered if I wasn't able to see who followed who. Yup, I can't click profiles either just yet.

 

I also find the ranking at the bottom of the "home" page useless..why do I need to know who the all time/6 month or 24hrs ranker is based on their hearts?! 👿

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@heartsmyface so I can't reply to your reply lol.. well I have no clue what happens..haha can you see my recent purchases (hope not)..I think maybe we are able to track what the followed peeps have been upto (where they post/comment etc aka stalking).

 

Awhh Thanks for following me 😘 I was already following you hehe (and anyone I could click on!)  ❤

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

Thanks for following me @heartsmyface. Smiley Happy Smiley Very Happy

I have no clue what the whole following thing does either. At first, I thought that I'd give you updates (like user x has joined blank group), but that would be extremely annoying (especially if you follow a lot of people). I don't know what to make of it. I think Sephora just wants to copy Instagram. It's just all about popularity. 

 

@Anewxa Don't even get me started on those other rankings, LOL! It's just so ridiculous. This is a beauty fourm, not a contest. 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@heartsmyface @Anewxa @lmi82 I'm feeling the same way. The "follower" thing is creepy to me, plus you can't even see who they are. So like Hearts said, it feels like an imaginary stalker. 

 

I'm laying low here and trying to be patient. Also, I have nothing nice to say so as the proverb goes, I need to just remain quiet. But this is a huge bummer to me. I just got back into BT a few weeks ago after being in a major slump. It was helping me feel happy and excited again. This has kind of set me back a bit. It's just too hard to naviagate. I'll pop in and out to see if things get fixed, but I don't see myself posting much anytime soon. I can't post pics, can't seem to follow the threads and it's just frustrating me. 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@Anewxa No clue what that's about.  It seems like something that the Mods would be more interested in than the general public.  It would be a good gauge to keep track of who is active and who is losing interest in the boards...We don't need to see that.  

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@Anewxa at least 5 now. I couldn't access your profile previously. Btw if you people added  you as a friend on BT that transitioned into your current followers. 

 

Not sure what following does exactly but if I can access a profile I'm clicking that follow button 😉

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@ElleElleG But it's weird cause now you can't see who those friends are anymore. :/ I can't see who I'm following or who is following me.  It's like being stalked. 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@heartsmyfaceI was able to follow you on the computer yesterday but neither @Anewxa nor @lmi82 s profiles were working. Now on mobile they came up fine. 

 

I never knew you could see friends before. It wasn't something I fully understood  so I didn't use. 

 

Jumping in to add that I hate that this

is being seen as/may be seen as/ or used as a point of contention. The mods noted previously that moving up in rank** wasn't based on any one thing: followers, posting photos, hearts, etc. Hoping that was/is fully accurate. 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@ElleElleG ❤❤❤ 

 

I think we need a "followers" party soon for everyone lol..

@Anewxa my thought exactly! you know what they say about great minds!! 

 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@ElleElleG Your profile worked for me when the site first updated (I followed you then, too), but now your profile is a blank page. I'm finally able to follow @Anewxa, though! I've been able to see @heartsmyface's the whole time. It seems like the profiles are hit or miss. 

 

@Anewxa Yes! We should definitely have a followers party so no one gets left out. I'd hate for people's feeling to get hurt over this.

 

@pixiedust2 I'm sorry that you had been in a BT slump and I'm even more sorry that you've come back only to find this. Smiley Sad

I definitely understand wanting to keep your distance while the site is being reworked. I'll definitely look forward to when you pop in! Smiley Happy

Feels like I've made this face a lot both here & elsewhere, lol. Maybe it has something to do with trying to connect our old posts to the new platform? @lmi82

 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

O.k. y'all - I have no idea where this post will end up, but I am going to try anyway. Smiley Happy

 

@lyravega- I finally found everyone's comments from a few days ago and I want you to know you are not alone!  I feel a little like my home just got sucked up by a tornado and landed back on the ground inside out and upside down in the middle of a labyrinth.  I know you guys are here, but I am having trouble finding you....

I don't understand the follower thing, either.  I'm just trying to follow everyone I normally talk to in case it helps me find them later.

 

@heartsmyfaceI totally get what you mean about followers feeling like imaginary stalkers - I have no clue who is following me or what that even means.  Also - I love your comment about our party temporarily feeling like drunk girls crying in the bathroom, but that is how some of my closest friendships were made irl, so I think we'll all be bound for life after getting through this TOGETHER. Smiley Happy

 

Let's just hold on to each other and keep looking out for each other as we navigate these muddy waters.  I am cautiously optimistic that things will straighten out in the next week or two - this is a beta version of the site, after all...
