    These are both in the directory, under the brand name B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful; a former name for the perfumery side of Lush.

    I've just started using this feature. I'm wondering, what is the reason for some members posting multiple times in the sotd area? For example, today, one member has posted his sotd 16 times. There are a few others who do this too. It messes up the totals. I can understand a double post (for which there is a delete option), but I can't understand why you would post 16 times. There should be measures in place to prevent that.

    Yes, we talked about this in another thread. It seems that some people want to write down everything they've ever worn. It's really wacky. I don't get it. To what purpose?

    I saw someone posting on it dozens of times a day and thought it was messing things up. But then it occurred to me that they could have been catching up on what they'd worn during the Huddler era. Later, when whatever catch-up should have already happened, I figured some folks might be testing several things or layering scents together. Beyond that, some people may have no other power in their lives and want to screw with the stats here, just because they can.

    Many of them are listing the same scent multiple times.

    I think this is the case. Perhaps some people miss a few days, so they post 3 at once, but the top male frag right now, seems to be a result of one person voting for it 250 times. I've never even heard of it.

    I like using this feature for my own purposes, as a diary. As an overall device for a gauge of what's popular, SOTD is non-functional.

    Maybe a moderator could simply ask directly what is going on and take it from there. It's possible that at some point, some of the entries can be removed by an admin. if they think doing so would make things more accurate.

    I'm kind of neutral on the whole thing, so if people give me the names of the users who are doing this the most, I'll query them gently to find out why. I think it's useful for Grant to know, at the very least, why people are seeing the need to do this.

    Wow! One user (not to be named) who has done this, can actually crash the page if you try to go for their tally!!!

    Don't click on the link!

    We should be adding a backdating option soonish - so that should cut down on some of the bulk posting for a particular day.

    We're also considering a system whereby on the main display it will only show the most recent worn by a member in the last 24 hours.

    (And thanks, RP - you can send any issues with this to me rather than Grant for now.)

    Not sure I can reproduce how it happened, but a couple of times I've noticed multiple entries showed up when I was trying to post my scent of the day. I had to go back and remove them. Not sure I always noticed, tho. I might have been selecting the scent from my wardrobe, then clicking to post as scent of the day, then re-clicking when the page didn't change, thinking the entry didn't take.

    IOW, maybe not all the multiples are intentional.

    Are wears during Huddler era going to be integrated with this site or it's gone? Reviews are back at least, that's commendable.

    Hi Grant, would you possibly be able to render a guess on when this feature might return? I hate to sound pesty, but it has been 4 months since I last inquired. Thanks in advance!

    Nice idea.

    That would actually be an amazing way to data-mine new scents. If the scent doesn't match in the database, it just appears without a bottle icon and goes to a list, possibly with the results of a web search. So people could input new fragrances and record their wears of them at the same time. Later, when the name matched, after being added to the database, it would appear with the correct bottle icon, and the wears would update with all the past ones of that user that matched. Non-matching fragrances could still be kept out of the currently displayed totals, so nothing would have to be changed there.

    An advantage of this method would be that it would restrict user-submitted fragrances to the ones people were actually wearing, thus reducing workload to the ones that BNers are most concerned about. What better criterion could there be?

    Sorry for the delay, it's still on my todo list but unfortunately other things keep pushing it down. How about I give it an hour of my time tomorrow and see how much I can get done!

    "fcasimiro is wearing ZegnaIntenso by Ermenegildo Zegna
    33 minutes ago. Show all worn by fcasimiro
    Not wearing this scent but sample testing Zegna Haitian Vetiver (not in directory of fragrances here)."

    I will use member fcasimiro problem to address it here. I do agree that the member could have added it to the directory as this option is open to everyone. I myself added a few, BUT, until they are added, we should be able to have an option on SOTD function to use some sort of a "Blank wear". I think that would be quite a neat option.

    Ok, pardon me, I see this is already under development, or better yet, consideration. Apologies, hasty me .

    I know that the SOTD feature is a bit of fun only, but I do use it to track my wears and find it useful. One thing I don't understand is how SOTD does it's totals. If I look at "Your most worn (in the last month)" I see that I have recorded GHLEB 20 times - which is right as I've worn it every day for work. If I look at "Popular with the Boys (in the last month)" the fiftieth item has been worn 14 times. I have seen others record GHLEB so total wears in the month must exceed 30 yet it doesn't appear anywhere in the PwtB top fifty. How can this be?

    I see that this has been changed to indicate that it's the number of people and not the number of wears - which explains a lot!!

    I think it WAS fun to see how many times it was worn. Why not bring that back and add this as well. For instance - worn by 372 people 2.560 times (I think it's Terre d'Hermes).

    I have a suggestion - SOTD mode where you can choose to see how many people worn frags and a mode to see how many times frags were worn. Two different lists. Also, not just the first 50, but like on Huddler - all of them. People will be able to judge the popularity of a fragrance by four means - people worn, times worn, number of reviews, number of threads started
