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...

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...

A lot of you have been asking about it for quite a while, and we totally understand it might've been a bit confusing for you getting your patterns or photos declined multiple times for not knowing what we're actually looking at, when reviewing your content. We've already had a page...

I have a quick update again for all of you guys 🙂. We've been seeing pretty high numbers of patterns being submitted for a review in the last week, and have been struggling a bit to keep up with all the great work you are constantly posting to the website, and so we've decided to...

We all know it's been quite hard and cumbersome to discuss your pattern-review-related questions and doubts with our moderators team. It wasn't possible to know which moderator will be reviewing your pattern, and also quite hard for our moderators to keep track of the pattern...

Some of you may be aware of an incident that occurred recently. An alpha pattern with the text "black lives matter" was declined by one of our moderators. The decline message stated that BraceletBook does not accept such patterns for being "too political". Understandably, the...

Hello guys 🙂. I'm more than happy to announce yet another moderator who joined our team a few days ago. Please welcome @Tikilishi! @Tikilishi is really a lovely person, and we've noticed her mainly because of how nice and helpful she's been to other users in the forum, for a very...

Just a quick update for you guys about something I added to our admin section recently 🙂. I received a few tutorials lately, and it was really time consuming for me to add them, as it all had to be done manually 🙁. And as I know there's more tutorials coming in the near future, I wanted to...

BraceletBook is here with you for more than 10 years already, and now we're celebrating our 200 000th registered user! We've seen an explosion in the number of users registered daily since we've released the new website some more than a year ago 🙂. On Jan of 2019, the number was...

You might've noticed a short period of unavailability of our services today, but it wasn't for no reason 🙂. We were upgrading our server to one that is much more powerful. We're currently seeing a huge spike in the number of active users on the site, and our old server started to...

Hello guys 🙂. Some of you might have noticed a pretty long outage of our services during the maintenance I had to perform today. There were some things we needed to do while updating the website with some minor changes, and it involved turning it off for a while, as a lot of data had to be...

It took me a couple of days to write about our new moderator, as I was working hard on fixing one problem which luckily didn't affect the production environment (live website). Please welcome the newest member of our moderators team, @WTKaitlyn! She's registered on BraceletBook from...

For the last 2 days, I was working hard on updating a lot of stuff under the hood. Not the site itself, but the system, all the system packages, the applications it uses, the database server, the python programming language on which it all runs, all the packages we use in python, Django framework...

We've been thinking about creating weekly challenges for a while now, and @hannah_0 reminded me about it a few days ago by creating a nice forum topic asking how many people would be interested in having them. A lot of people immediately replied saying they would definitely participate, and...

A lot of you have been asking us about the details of our review process, and so I decided to write a short explanation on how it all works, and maybe also talk about some reasons why your patterns or photos might get declined. When it all began, there wasn't so much items being posted to...

Our review process is slowly but surely getting stabilised, and the initial problems and questions have already been resolved. And so we've decided to add one more member to our mods team, so that we all can take more time reviewing each of the items you submit to the site, hopefully...

Just a quick shoutout to you guys 🙂. I gave a reward to one of our users today for reporting a pretty severe usability issue that affected a lot of our users, and after a bit of thinking, we've decided we will officially be giving rewards for such reports. Rewards will range from 1 up to 5...

Some users have reported an issue with sending messages and comments yesterday, and so I started investigating it right away. I found out it only happens in some mobile browsers, but probably affected a lot of you, as it was also happening in chrome. Chrome tries to intelligently enlarge...

This is just a quick, but a very important message I wanted to talk about for a while 🙂. A lot of you probably already know about this, and are using it, but it seems like there's still a lot of users who might not be aware of a new feature we're having on BraceletBook since...

Just a quick update for you guys 🙂. A few days ago, @Racoon (@MashaKnots) have published yet another video that was made in collaboration with BraceletBook. The first one was a tutorial for normal patterns, and this one goes into depth about alpha patterns. Both videos are for beginners and...
