    Default new wardrobe feature - sotd/twitter type thang

    Hello

    Here's the first thing to come out of "Basenotes Labs". Well, I'm trying to make it sound exciting - but in reality, I was bored of answering emails and spend a few hours coding this evening. There's no lab. I don't even own a white coat.

    One thing I've been wanting to finish off for ages it the Wardrobe Feature. It's usable, but not how I wanted it. A feature I wanted to add for ages was a 'Scent of the Day button'. The idea would be that you would press the Scent of the Day button, on the fragrances page - and it would record if for you. I know there are many of you that keep record of what they wear, and this would make it easier - plus give you the option to make graphs and charts etc.

    That was the original idea I had a few years ago. Recently, for Plus Members, I implemented the first part - a Scent of the Day button. Now I'm rolling it out to all

    All it does at the moment is record it and publish it to a 'live feed'.

    So Questions....

    How do I use it?

    Find the fragrance you are wearing at the moment in the directory and hit the Post as My Scent of the Day button (it's the one below the post as my scent of the day to twitter/facebook links).

    Where can I see everyone's scents of the day?

    At the moment, you can go here: http://www.basenotes.net/bn_todaysscent.php

    What's on the to do list?


    Lots! This is very early days.

    1. Change the Post as My Scent of the Day button, to something else when a scent is chosen as a SOTD
    2. Allow SOTDs to be deleted in case they were accidentally added
    3. Autopublish SOTDs to Twitter / Facebook et al
    4. Ability to add that Scent of the Day you forgot to add last Thursday
    5. Ability to make your SOTDs private or only viewable to logged in members or people on your friends list
    6. Add an image of the SOTD in the live feed
    7. Easily view all your previous SOTDs
    8. Show your SOTD in the 'postbit' on the forums
    9. Ability to add a comment to the SOTD (so you can say something about it)
    10. Paginate SOTDs on the feedpage (at the moment it will go on indefinitely - I've not paginated it, but just fixed it to show scents in the last 24 hours, which I think most people are interested in. Will add ability to look at historic stuff at a later date
    11. Show stats on the feed page - top fragrances this week etc
    12. integrate this into wardrobes and directory
    13. oh, lots more stuff i'm sure




    Any ideas you have will be gratefully heard!

    As for suggestions, I think it would be useful to see actual dates there if it's more than '3 days ago', especially when the list grows

    I will add this, but it means checking the viewers timezone and adjusting accordingly if they are logged in. The ...days ago is a quick workround for now!

    First: I love this feature!

    There seems to be a bug in the "Your top five" list, nothing with a smaller number of wears than Acqua di Selva by Visconti di Modrone will show up in the list. so if AdS is my number two most worn, there will only be two items in the top five list. Is there anything special with the Acqua di Selva that could cause this strange behaviour of the list? The length of the name?

    No its a sitewide bug.

    I also need to split the top 10 lists into worn by men and worn by women too.

    I'm looking forward to additions to the directory. I'm wearing Lolita Lempicka Fleur de Corail today, which came out a few years ago but isn't in the directory yet. I'm really looking forward to the tracking features. Since I have a very small perfume budget, I generally try to drain a sample before purchasing, but it will be interesting to see the frequency I'm drawn to different perfumes. Nice work!

    I'm having trouble staying logged in while I navigate the site. If I go to the directory or to my wardrobe, it says I need to sign in. When I sign in, it takes me back to the home page and then logs me out when I try to go to the directory or wardrobe again. It may be a problem with my phone (I use the internet browser on it), but it worked until a few days ago.

    The page shown after clicking the Post SotD button may give the impression that it's not yet posted. Some people have posted the same SotD thrice within 5 minutes. Maybe a minimum time between a member's SotD posts could help avoiding such repetitions.

    Just about SOTD... My "Top 5" is only a "Top 2" right now. A few months ago it randomly went from the normal 5, to 4, to 3, now its at 2. I'm not sure if this is just me or everyone

    I just discovered the feature and I've used it a total of 5 times now - but my top 5 shows only the first one I entered.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    You guys gonna kill me, but I have no idea where to ask this: I can't find the wardrobe "settings" button option, that allows us to type notes, that will appear at the top of wardrobe before the listed fragrances. Will this "setting" function be available again?

    Edit: Oops I was playing around with the wardrobe and found a link that addressed the issue.

    Fantastic feature, thanks Grant!

    My only ask is if you could make it put a space between the colon after SOTD: when you post to Twitter. At the moment, it just goes like SOTD:Mitsouko which kinda ruins search functionality on Twitter. Hopefully just a simple fix for you.

    Also, is there any way in future of being able to type something like @NonScents into a forum, and then that becomes a clickable link to that person's profile, and you could also perhaps find all references like that to that person in forums? They have this functionality on facebook, and of course twitter.

    But SOTD is great, thanks again!

    Neat feature! I especially like the "post to Twitter" ability. However, when I did that, it seems that the "&" in "Czech & Speake" broke, because my tweet came out as "SOTD:No. 88 by Czech" only. I would also like to note that there is a fairly popular acronym for "Shave of the day" on Twitter, so maybe FOTD (Frag of the day) may be a different option.

    Are there more people using this over time? I'm making a point of entering everything I can because it creates usable info out the other end, but there seem to be a lot of posts the the SotD thread as well.

    I'm wondering is some extra features would be useful, like "pick me a frag I've rated at least three stars but haven't worn for a month", or "something really old that I've never worn or never rated", or "Nothing with one star" - that sort of thing. Kind of like the random frag link but with dials. The way itunes makes active playlists might be a good interface... you just add in the queries you want and run it.

    Also, a way to toggle between "worn xx weeks ago" and the exact date worn would be nice, especially when someone asks "what were you wearing Friday before last"? I often have NFI

    Thanks for the feature anyway Grant - I get a lot of use out of it.
