    Default The Big Wardrobe Wish List

    Hi all

    Wardrobes are finally going to get a facelift and include:

    Stage 1:

    Ability to set SOTD (already done)
    Ability to delete fragrances (yay)
    Ability to add tags to fragrances (so you can categorise them your own way)
    Ability to rate longevity.
    Ability to add personal notes about a fragrance

    Stage 2:

    Ability to add details of how many bottles of each you own
    Set whether it's a full bottle, sample, decant (and add sizes)
    Note where you purchased it etc

    Please add more suggestions below, and we'll take them into account

    Cheers

    The new features sound great,Grant. A real update.

    Suggestion : Would it be possible for basenoters to help add missing fragrances ,not in the directory ? It would help keep the directory current ,lighten your workload abit and could be an added perk for BN Plus members ?

    Suggestion: fragrance wear history. For example, I choose a particular fragrance in my wardrobe and i'm shown every time i've used it in the past provided i'm using the SOTD tool.

    Oh ho! The ability to list whether something is a bottle or a sample or whatnot would be fantastic.

    I'd also love some spiffy way to list fragrances not in the directory, because that big blue box at the top of my wardrobe offends my OCD. Ideally would be able to give star ratings and make a comment about each.

    You might look into the names of the tabs, and their lumping into each other.

    I don't like the "tried" tab because as a noob, it wasn't obvious to me that Tried = The ones you actually wanted in that category + all the ones in My Collection + Owned which you didn't. It's redundant. No category should "automatically" belong to another.

    Also, it took me a while to realize that clicking "You Own This" is equivalent to "My Collection".

    Still, let me point out that we all appreciate your massive efforts in running all of this madness, and are eternally grateful for them!

    Glad to hear that repair and refinement of the wardrobe feature is underway. Here are a few suggestions (some echoing ideas mentioned above).

    1. In my opinion, the best category names are:
    a. My Collection [the ones I currently own]
    b. Used to Own [the ones I previously owned but no longer have]
    c. Tested [the ones I've sniffed enough to form an opinion about, but have never owned]
    d. To Test [the ones I have never sniffed but plan to]
    e. Wish List [the ones I have never owned but want to]

    2. It would be nice to be able to list a fragrance as usual in my wardrobe even if it is missing from the Directory. Or it would be nice to be able to add missing fragrances to the Directory. Crowdsourcing the task of adding new items to a database can work well; see for instance http://rateyourmusic.com/ and http://www.discogs.com/.

    3. A function that would randomly pick a fragrance from My Collection would keep me amused.
    Spray it, don’t say it…

    I would love to have "X Basenotes members have this in their wardrobe" -kind of thing. So an extra column somewhere with a number indicating how many wardrobes it belongs to.

    This sounds great, Grant! I agree with others who would like to be able to add to the directory. Perhaps it could be a two-step process, with members adding the information and submitting it to you for a quick approval for addition to the database?

    Knowing who has what was always a great feature to facilitate swaps and purchases. Does the large increase in membership prohibit this now?

    Once the wardrobe system is rewritten it will be less server intensive to do this kind of thing. Expect a return of this feature (as well as recommendations based on your drobes)

    These sound like great ideas! I would like to be able to add items to my wardrobe multiple times so that I could specify different concentrations (EdT, EdP, etc) or different vintages of the same basic scent.

    Default Re: The Big Wardrobe Wish List

    Some ideas:

    adding both sillage as well as longevity to the rating scale

    I'd REALLY love to be able to click on a frag and see who else has it on their wishlist or own list. Why? would make doing group buys/splits much easier to organize, also if I'm looking to sell something I can see who's looking for it. Or if I want to sample something, I can see who's got it in their wardrobe. So maybe some button that says "who else has this here" (own, test, etc) and then get a member list that I can sort to find the regular posters or something.

    If you add those features like decant/bottle size, I'd like to be able to sort with that instead of just alphabetical. So let's say I'm doing a swap with someone, I can go to their wardrobe, sort by decant/bottle size and then I know which ones to request.

    Maybe there could be a tab of "for sale or trade", so at any given time someone can look in my wardrobe and see what I'm selling, then click and it'll go to my sales thread, or instead of a whole sales thread, the person can see I'm looking to sell and just PM me for details.

    +1 to the ability to add concentration levels as well as vintage/year versions.


    Directory:
    like that amazon feature "people who bought/own this also liked/bought that"... this could be a feature in the directory. So when I look something up, I can have a tab to choose other scents I think are similar/related. So

    In the directory, I can't really figure out the value of that box about "other fragrances made the same year"...?? is there any point? I'd much rather have the above "related frags" tool.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window.

    We'll be adding the recommendations feature again (we used to have it, but it would just suggest Creed in most cases )

    I have to agree just because I own it doesn't automatically mean I have tried it .I could have bought a large group for ones that I knew I loved/wanted and the other ones are basiclly just a bonus .(I have done this repeatedly sometimes ending up with some unlabeled what-is-it bottles)

    Sorry if this has already been posted, I'm not very well and can't keep still for long, but I did want to say the ability to ADD fragrances to the directory, maybe pending approval?

    Hooray, Grant! This sounds like a ton of work. Thanks SO MUCH!

    I do have a question about the "who else owns this" feature. Does that mean if my wardrobe is public, I can expect PMs from anyone at anytime time asking for samples? I like having my wardrobe available as sometimes I'll see that someone is interested in something, and I'll shoot them a PM asking, "Would you like a sample of (X)? Also, please have a look at my wardrobe and let me know about anything else you'd like to try." But I'm less keen on receiving unsolicited PMs from peeps I may or may not know wanting to try this and that. I expect those who have wardrobes with many high-end and/or discontinued fragrances (not me!) would find this a real nuisance. I'm also going to be pretty busy in the coming months and might not have time for much swappage, and I'd hate having to decline out-of-the-blue requests (I dislike not being able to accommodate people, even when I'm spread thin with other obligations).

    So, anyway, I'm curious how that will work.

    As well as the current 'make wardrobe private' option, we could also have 'exclude wardrobe from who-owns-what lists'

    Grant, if you keep saying "yes" to all of these things people are asking for, I may end up cracking one off to this thread before we reach Stage 3.

    One thing which just occurred to me is that it might be handy to be able to specify whether the bottle you've got is vintage or not. As an example of how this might be used, I've got C&S 88 present formulation and also vintage. If I was able to list both separately in my wardrobe, then I could give them separate ratings - I'd rate the vintage 5 stars and the present formulation 4. It would also make browsing people's wardrobes more informative.

    How about being able to add pics to those frags that dont have one listed? There are alot on here with no face. Also the ability to add a fragrance that has not been added to the site? Is there a way you can possibly add instant messaging to the site? Where people can see others who are online & send them a message instead of waiting to hear a reply? I think that would come in handy. We could have a on/off switch that would tell when a user is online & a invisible one for those who dont want to be bothered by everyone but those they choose. Thanks for considering.

    Sounds like some really fantastic and useful changes are in the works. Thanks for the hard work Grant!

    oh, had another idea. So there's always a stack of reviews in the directory, and I believe they're sorted by submission date. What about the ability to click thumbs up/down on a review, so the "X# of users found this review helpful" go to the top. Ie, I don't have to read 50 reviews and realize half of them aren't really all that useful, I can just read the best few.

    I guess this is also more Directory related then wardrobe, but I mentioned this idea a while back in another thread. Basically I think it's Scentiments? one of the e-tailers, where they have various categories as part of teh rating, like Summer/winter, day/night, intimate/social, young/old, etc. So instead of just writing my text review, I can also check off those categories and things like sillage+longevity. So when I am then reading a review about something, I can see a summary from everyone of like X# of people said this was a winter frag, and X# rated it 4.3 stars out of 5 on sillage, etc...


    HeartWood - I don't think there'll be a tidlewave of PM's to do swaps. I'd imagine that when I'm looking something up in the directory and think "hey, I'd like to sample this, I wonder who's got some" and click on the "who owns this" tab, there'll probably be so many people that any PM's I send out will get spread amongst a bunch of people at random. Just an idea anyway.
