Hiya!

We've just released a new feature for Friends of Craftster.  We are calling it You've Been Favorited! Smiley

Friends of Craftster now have an option in their profiles to be sent a Personal Message notification when one of their projects is added to the My Favorite Projects Made by Other People section of another member's profile.

To change your notification option, which is set to "Always" as default, access My Craftster (on the tape measure menu) > My Profile -- Modify Profile/Personal Message Options.  You will now see the new feature listed as Notify by personal message when a Friend of Craftster adds your project as a Favorite  You can select:  Never, Always or From Buddies Only for this feature.

Here are some screens to demonstrate just how this new feature works! Smiley

Changing your notification option:

click to zoom in

A fellow Friend of Craftster spots your super fab project on the board and adds it to the My Favorite Projects Made by Other People section of their profile:


You receive a Personal Message from CraftsterBot (our hard-working crafty ROBOT!):

click to zoom in

You sit back and smile because your hard work is now showcased on someone's profile as a Favorite Project! Smiley Smiley

Please let us know if you have any questions or experience any issues while using this feature.

Thanks much!  Kiss


Fun Tip: This feature does not send notification for Favorites that you added to your profile prior to 05/13/10. If you want to send notifications for projects you added to the My Favorite Projects Made by Other People section of your profile before 05/13/10, remove them from your Favorite section and readd them!

That's a good idea! Smiley  I'll add the tip to the first post of this thread.

Okay, so obviously I still haven't learned how to use the quote button.  I have to find me a 5 year old to teach me computer use!
What I wanted to say is that I love Nataluna's two suggestions and that I think it's exciting that "someone" "May be" working on it now.  Sorry.

i was just thinking...how does it work if someone favorites something from a swap gallery?  usually your partner posts what you sent, so do they get the notification that what you made has been favorited?
