After the change of our consent management platform, we've been having some minor issues. Some strict browsers, like Safari for example, were not playing well with it. A separate popup was being displayed for our blog, and even on the main website, it was being shown too frequently. This...

It seems like this problem was present on the website for quite a while, but we didn't know about it. Yesterday, thanks to @LoopyCat letting us know and providing a lot of support, we managed to find out what caused it and resolve it pretty quickly. 🎉 The issue was present only on mobile...

Hey everyone! 🙂 Over the last few days I did a couple of small updates and fixes I had in my todo list. Nothing big, just a few minor improvements that needed to be done in order to allow us for bigger changes we're planning on 🙂. The conversation list was taking a little while to load for...

For the last two weeks I've been working very hard on something I've been postponing for a very long time now, but it had to be done at some point 🙂. It's not something that's visible for you end users at all, but rather something that will allow us to continue storing all of...

We've release an updated version of our iOS app to the AppStore recently 🙂. There's no big changes, but we've added proper support for some newer devices and fixed a few issues you might've come across while using the app. We've also tweaked the UI a bit in some places 😉,...

We've received some feedback from you - our users about the changes we've made with the generator warnings recently. We really think we've made a big step in the right direction, but there were a few things that could be improved a bit. I've been working really hard with our...

We've received some feedback from our users and also moderators on the way how the interactive generator is working with colours. It seems like ordering them based on how they're being used in the pattern wasn't good for every use case and so we decided it would be best to always...

Hey everyone! 🙂 Our moderators have reported an issue regarding inaccurate colour warnings in the generators to me yesterday 🙁. Sometimes it was enough to just change the order of 'colors used', and the generator was confused about it and showed different warnings about colours. I found...

Have a question regarding the normal pattern generator and concerned about the warnings it displays? We've got you covered! 🙂 @halokiwi noticed a lot of our users, mainly beginners, find it hard to understand the warning messages the generators display. They were very proactive and wrote a...

We promised it won't take long, and it's already here! 🔥 Today I've been working on adding left out knots support to the new interactive normal generator, and it went pretty smoothly, so it's already done and you can try it out! 🙂 I also found a few pretty important things to...

Yet another quick update for the interactive normal generator today! From now on, the generator also allows you to add / remove strings from the left side of the pattern, and add / remove rows from the top. We've also added the ability to choose what type of knots to add to the pattern when...

Just a quick update for all of you today 🙂. Undo support for generators has been a feature we wanted to add for a really long time, as a lot of our users were requesting it 😉. So today we're more than happy to finally announce undo support for both 'interactive normal' and...

I'm super excited to share this news with all of you today! 🙂 It really took us a long time, but the wait is now finally ending, and the new generator is here! To find it, just open up your pattern in the 'create patterns' section, and you'll see a new generator to switch to...

We've been waiting a little while until things settle down after adding super moderators to the site, but some time has passed and it seems like everything is running smoothly! 🙂 So we decided to add yet another Super Moderator, and it's the 2. most active moderator from the last 3...

Hey everyone! 🙂 I have some news to share with you. It might not be as positive as you would expect for the beginning of a new year 🙁, but don't be worried, I'm sure we've got this! 🙂 @Johny got promoted at his job, and was a bit worried not to have as much time for BraceletBook...

To improve the quality of our services even more, today we've introduced a new rank that we were discussing with our moderators for a longer time already 🙂. The name of the new rank is 'Super Moderator', and for the start we've chosen one of our moderators that will have some...

Over the last few days, we've been having issues with some very rude users on the website, and so we agreed with our moderators that we should write an in-depth blog post on that topic. I will be touching 3 main topics today, so please read all of them, and very carefully, as it's...

On the 15th of December 2018, we were removing restrictions for lower ranks in the chat, as we thought it won't cause any issues, and that also newcomers to our community should have the opportunity to chat with other users in the chat. Most of the time it worked really fine, and the chat...

Yes, finally! 🎉🎉🎉 We've been thinking a lot with our moderators on how to fix the rating system on BraceletBook, and I can now finally say that the first stage is done! 🙂 We've made it so that only users with higher ranks are now able to give your patterns and tutorials lower ratings...

We've got some great news to share with all of you today! 🎉 We've just deployed native dark mode support for our website just a few minutes ago! 😎 It took some time for the server to re-generate all the pattern and variation SVGs (yes, they also look different in dark mode!), so I...

Hey everyone! 😎 We've updated our review guidelines today, with some more details and info on various different topics that we discussed with the moderators on Slack over the time 🙂. Please read them when you find some time, to make sure you're up2date with the latest additions. We...

Hello everyone! 🙂 I'm super happy I can now say with 100% certainty, that the performance issues we've been having with the server are fixed now. It was a long journey, that sometimes felt like a never-ending one, but it's a big relief to see everything working smoothly now. We...

Hello everyone 🙂. I just have a quick message for those of you who experienced downtimes throughout the day today. We've been having some minor problems in the admin interface, which have been caused by an overloaded database server. The patterns section was sometimes really slow to work...
by Admin 9 months, 2 weeks ago
We've increased the daily variation limits today, and also changed the way they work a bit. They are now rank-based, which means the higher your rank is, the more variations you can create daily. It goes all the way from max. 5 daily additions, up to 30 for Bracelet Kings 🙂. We've also...

I'm more than happy to announce this! 🙂 The 5 new moderators we've added to our team are helping us a lot! In fact, they've been such a help that we've managed to go thru the whole pattern review queue, and review all the patterns that were there 🙂. That means the review times...

After adding 3 new moderators to the team 2 weeks ago, we've decided to add 2 more today, as the whole process went a lot smoother than we expected the last time, and as of now it looks it's already all settled down 🙂. And so we had 2 more polls with all of our moderators. The first...

With 250k registered users, 120k patterns (including variations) and almost 100k uploaded photos, our old server setup was slowly starting to struggle fulfilling our requirements, and so we had to upgrade it to a completely new machine today 🙂. You might have experienced a brief period of...

As some of you might have already noticed, we were looking for moderators in a forum topic, and I'm more than happy to announce that we're done already! 🎉 After carefully reading thru all of your responses, I've gathered a total of 21 users who fit our expectations. After that, we...

Hello everyone 🙂. Politics has been a very hot topic here on BraceletBook for the last few weeks, and we've all been thinking a lot about how to resolve the issues we were having. We are doing our best to listen to our community and know what our users are looking for when using our...

Hello everyone! After a lot of thinking I slowly came to a conclusion that probably won't be the happiest thing to hear for you, but one that I think had to be made at some point. In the last few months, the number of our active users started to grow really rapidly, as I've already...
