JUN 4: Featured sets / Home Page
Featured sets is now managed by automated software (not a human being as previously ).
This software guarantee for you that all sets and users are treated equally.
Right now, our software is checking every hour sets created 23-24h ago and selecting the best one (most popular, and most profesional one).
What is most important for that software to make your set fabulous?
- number of likes
- comments from unique users
- used products from our shop page
- valuable description (readable, unique, containing proper tags)
also the new users (newbies) get extra points to each set by the first days of their presence at URSTYLE.
@admin While I think it is great the Home Page is up and running again and there is a diversity of sets, I sincerely hope your parameters for the Home Page do not turn out to be a popularity contest. Regards Ollie
@admin the shop page only features products from bikinidotcom & SmatBuyGlasses?
I don’t think the number of likes & comments make the case for fabulous sets. Originality, proper use of the editor, design skills, and number of unique views per set are more likely to work.
If all users will be ‘treated equally’, what are the benefits for monthly contributors?
@admin not sure if that is a great idea to feature sets this way. It's a honor to land on the front page as it says something about your set and set making skills usually which in return inspires other to create and then too...look forward to landing on the front page.
In this case quantity over quality
is winning when it should be the other way around. Personal, it FEELS GOOD with an actual person is PAYING attention and not playing favorites to sets that are random. Algorithm does this a doesn't really justify landing on the front page.
I get it as to why you may want a bot system to do this picking but it doesn't make it fun, inspiring or special for that matter. Please consider another way or pick a team to focus only on that side if possible.
We appreciate seeing new sets don't get me wrong but please reconsider this one.
not an algorithm

@luckied99 @jesuisunlapin @Ollie @admin Totally agree with you girls ... many spend hours putting together their set . and spend hours looking for items elsewhere as the shop page has little to offer and more than once there are items that were on sale years ago, so not up to date at all. This is most of all a fashion, interior and beauty site with few item to offer in the shop to be honest. And what happens to the art sets ... it looks like they have little chance of being featured this way . In the end it is only they who make many quickly assembled sets with items of the shop page and with not much of design skills that will get the most featured sets on the Home page . And how about the unique users comments who are they ... I really don't know who there talking about I feel so sorry for what's going on right now on URSTYLE
@luckied99 I agree. It's lost it's meaning.
@admin To give everyone a chance why not make the "get inspired" tab your home page that way everyone will be featured. If someone, wants to see who got featured they can click on the featured tab. This would encourage those with lower self esteems to create more sets on this site and it would help with the traffic flow on this site.
I see the same users on the front page daily, sometimes multiple sets from the same user every day. I spend hours for some of the items in my sets. Clipping items, photos, graphics, etc. I put in a ton of effort. I think the "software" choosing sets is not really giving everyone a fair evaluation. How could it? It cannot see the beauty in the sets, only the parameters set. I just left TrendMe because of lack of attention by the webmasters to keep the site updated..I was the number 1 user on that site when I left. I was hoping for a more place where real people cared about the sets and the site.
@admin Can I ask how one can exclude their sets from being on the homepage please?
Hey everyone! Please check out my blog post on this topic! I would appreciate it if you read it, gave some feedback and contributed your ideas so we can discuss it as a community! I also posted it on the Community Page under the "Say Hello" tab and under the "Help" tab.

You would only have to look at one of these since they are all the exact same post!
@mayblooms I agree with you ... We all want to admire the most beautifully crafted set in fashion , home / interior and art/doll . Software cannot recognize a well-edited or good style set, and that is very clear when we look at what is currently on the featured home page . Many of these sets will certainly not inspire anyone in terms of style or layout . If I want to see beautiful sets I go to the My Feed page . I just don't want to waste my time any more on the home featured page as it's lost it's meaning ... which is admiration and inspiration .
