Because yes, we’re finally seeing some progress!
Here’s what *should* be working now:
Search in the galleries and artist directories has been fixed for all IE customers.
Formatting problems on Art of the Day should be fixed for all IE customers.
Generating COAs for work that is already in your portfolio *should* be working for most customers. Be aware there are now required fields that must be filled before generation is enabled.
Generating templates for work that is already in your portfolio *should* be working for most customers.
Show entry for work that is already in your portfolio is working for *some* customers. This is still in progress.
Here’s what we’re still working on:
Uploading new work
Editing new/existing work
Managing your personal galleries
Submitting work to EBSQ galleries
Some odd page rendering for IE customers
Adding back in tools like counters, stats, & creating logos
Thanks you all for your patience with our growing pains. We’ll check back in later today with more updates!
Well, today wasn’t exactly the launch day we’ve been dreaming of for months. A lot of the things that worked in development simply aren’t working as expected when hit with a ton of traffic and real users. Most notable of the issues is that pretty much every single site feature that queries our database is broken in Internet Explorer (IE). We’re working on resolving those issues so there’s smooth sailing across all browser platforms. In the interim, might we suggest giving Chrome, Firefox, or Opera a try?
Uploads and new COA creation still isn’t available. Trust me when I say that’s our top priority. We are literally nothing without your art! Templates do seem to be working in some browsers, but not in others.
Stats and counters are still on the waiting list. They’ll be coming after the more pressing tech issues have been addressed.
I’m not going to lie, it’s been a long, hard, miserable day, and I totally feel the same frustrations you all do. But the silver lining (for me, anyhow) is that I got to interact with so many of you, including people I haven’t heard from in ages (hi!) here in our blog, on the forums, via twitter, via email, and even on my personal facebook page! Thank you for the good feedback. And the bad! We hear you, and when all of the kinks are worked out, we’re going to have an even better site thanks to each and every one of you.
