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...

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...
