I think a lot of you knew about this issue, as some of you also reported it to me a few times, but for those of you who don't know our database server had a limit on the min. number of letters a word you search for could contain. Because of this, keywords shorter than 3 characters...

We're always listening to your feedback very closely and today we've made yet another change that a lot of you have requested! 🙂 Our rank algorithm which computes ranks based on user activity definitely needed a few tweaks and improvements after all these years! The goal was to balance...

As you might've noticed, we had a couple of downtimes in the recent days during which our website wasn't accessible, so I wanted to let you know what was happening 🙂. Every once in a while we have to update a lot of stuff on the server to ensure we're running the latest and...

Hey everyone! 👋 Some of you might have noticed and some of you might not, so I wanted to share this info with all of you so that you know what was happening 🙂. We had to do a pretty extensive data migration on our server. Some of the files needed to be migrated to a different storage device to...

Hello everyone! 🙂 After the last changes we made to our pattern review process, we kept talking with our moderators about even more stuff around keywords that we could change for the better. The main goal was to make the rules as consistent as possible, and also publicly available to all of you...

We had a discussion with our moderators today on the importance of pattern keywords which @KrazyKnotz opened. If you read our review guidelines, you probably already know it, but keywords play a huge role in our database. They're being used a lot by both our moderators and our users when...

Up until now, we were allowing swear words on BraceletBook in some very specific cases, for example direct quotes from movies or tv shows. This raised a lot of questions and concerns from our users over the last few years, and so we've been also thinking about it a lot with our moderators...

We started seeing a big increase in pattern series being created by some of our users. Some of those series were pretty big, and we found out we didn't think about this in the past, as it has become an issue only now. We talked about this with our moderators, and decided we have to add some...

We've been waiting for this moment for so long, and now that it's here we can't believe we managed to achieve it. When we first started BraceletBook, we truly believed we can bring a lot of value and useful tools for all the wonderful bracelet communities around the world, but if...

First of all, I'm really sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We've been having yet another issue with the consent dialog showing up after every action on the website for some of you 🙁. I made a small mistake in the last update, which made the dialog think it...

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...
by Admin 10 months ago
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...
