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...

Hello everyone! 🙂 Let me share some great news with you today 🙂. We're seeing a huge spike in the number of active users on BraceletBook these days, and so to continue making our community awesome for all of you, we added 2 new lovely moderators to our team, and we're super excited...

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...

As you may have already noticed, we're really close friends with @MashaKnots (@Racoon here on BB). We really think her channel is unique, and she has so much bracelet life hacks you can learn by watching her videos, that it's really hard to count 🙂, and we also love the way she makes...

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post mentioning our web push notification registrations were broken because web browsers changed the way they handle it. I just wanted to briefly tell you it's fixed now, and should work as expected 🎉 🙂. It now seems everything that should work works, and I can...

Just a quick update for you guys so you know we're still here doing our best to move BraceletBook forwards! There's been a couple minor things we've been working on for the last few weeks, mostly under the hood, improving performance in various sections of the site, cleaning up...

I know that's been a feature a LOT of you have requested over the time, and it was pretty high in out to-do list because of that. We're now showing 11 similar patterns instead of 6 on pattern detail pages! 🎉 If you think we should be displaying even more similar patterns, please write...

Today I got into another couple of to-dos we had planned for the website. They're all connected with a page that is being viewed the most on BraceletBook - the home page. Most of the tasks were actually suggestions from you, our users. Hottest patterns algorithm The hottest patterns...

For the last couple of days, we were working on updating the layout of the whole site for bigger displays. We found out that using all the space available on large screens is not the best idea. The text then becomes unreadable because of the long lines, and although having a lot of content...

Just a quick update for you guys. We were receiving a lot of similar questions in the forums, and so we together with our new moderators came to a conclusion we should list all of those questions somewhere so that we have them all in one place. We already had an FAQ section, but not many of you...

We're really excited we can now officially announce our collaboration with MashaKnots 🎉! We've joined forces, and have a lot of things planned for you guys 🙂. For the beginning, we've started with a tutorial video on how to read normal patterns, which you can find when you...

It's finally here! The big update we were working on for so long is finally finished and deployed! Some of you might have already noticed, but I still wanted to write this blog post to explain it everything in more detail 🙂. We've been having some issues with our review process for...

Just a quick update for you guys due to the lack of time we currently have 🙂. We're working on a huge update to our admin section, which will make the review process a LOT better! It consists of 2 pretty big changes we have to make. The first one is done now and has just been published, and...

We've been seeing some of you had problems with duplicate posts being made, when only 1 was intended. It was happening in multiple places on the website, e.g. chat, comments, forum, and it shouldn't happen any more, because it is now fixed 🙂. This was just a quick update, because...

In the last few weeks, we started receiving a huge amount of patterns, photos, comments and forum posts in our admin section, so we started thinking about how we could optimise the reviewal process. The first and a very important thing was having pre-filled messages for some of the sections...

Just a quick update for those who were waiting for this to happen 🙂, and I know a lot of you were waiting 🙂. Loves finally behave just like to-dos, which means there is a separate section for browsing your and other users' loves, and just like to-dos, they are also displayed in your user...
