Two small but awesome features were just added!!  Grin

First, we all know swaps can be totally amazing, but generally when you're searching for a project or information, they don't often have what you need. To make it easier to find the information you need, we've removed swaps from the basic search. We didn't want to make it tough to search them if you wanted to, though! If you ARE searching for a swap, just tick the "include swap threads" box and any threads in any swap boards will also be included in your search.

We hope that this will help people more easily find exactly what they're looking for!  Grin

We've also added THIS ROCKS buttons in more places to help you help us recognize all the awesome projects that get posted no matter how you find them! You can now find them via the Recent with Pictures blue button on the right side of the forum:

And on the list of image posts by any member:

Wherever there is a THIS ROCKS button, there's also a Report to moderator button. While not as fun, it's just as important! Please report things that you think may be breaking the rules so that we can keep the rules fairly and evenly enforced!

Questions, comments, concerns? Let us know!  Smiley

I love that swaps aren't included in searches unless we select the option! It's always been discouraging when I've done a search and get 37 pages of results, and almost all of them are swap threads and the one I'm looking for is buried deep in the stack.

Thanks a bunch for adding that feature! And, the "This Rocks" in "Recent with Pictures" is also a stellar feature!

You guys are fabulous for all of the continuous tweaking you do to make Craftster even more awesome than it already is! I need an "Admins & Mods Rock" button, now Wink

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

Yep, I've been lost in the swap-heavy search results, so "yay!" to this change.  Grin

Like button? yes, that would be fun, especially if a member could see that. BUT, having this rocks in more places does rock, and especially on recent with pictures. I spend a lot of time there for inspiration. Love all the new changes.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
