    Default Scent of the Day Feature

    Some members post that they have worn the same scent 20+ times a day only to see they're favorite scent seen in the most worn category..
    The Huddler way was much better in which you can only wear one particular scent once a day.. I won't mention names but I would like to see what people are really wearing.. it sometimes reminds me of a scent that I have not worn in a while..

    I did like Huddler's "minding" to make sure I only post it once. I tend to wear a scent for a few days, so the Huddler SOTD would occasionally catch me accidentally entering a scent twice in the same day.

    The main thing I liked about the Huddler SOTD was being able to search a scent right there and add it directly. That saved me having to leave the page and search in the directory.

    Good point, Tony, although some members don't log in every day so a few may be posting 'catch ups'.

    A lot of members will also wear several different products in a day - after showering, before going out for the evening, etc.

    Red - we can do it faster via our Wardrobe - click on the product & you're taken to the product page with the SOTD posting bit.

    I, in my naivety, thought that people wear a certain fragrance but they don't visit the site for this or that reason, thus they "pump" the wears of recent days, weeks or even months. But hey, I'd not exclude the part you mention.

    I do that kind of thing, for instance if I tested a frag a month ago but it's not here in the directory, I'll post it in a scent of the day month later when it is - but I'll also type the date and reason for instance "02.11.2013. test wear".

    The thing is, it never occurred to me that someone might be posting that he/she wears a frag for 10-20 times just so that the numbers of wearings of particular frag/frags might grow.

    It hadn't occurred to me either, Zgb - it is another one for the 'glitch' list!

    Thanks for the thread, Tony!

    l really can't believe anyone would post for that reason. l often post "catch-ups" if l've been away for a while, & l would resent the ability to do so being taken away.

    It has been posted, Donna255 - the error message is a known issue that doesn't prevent the post appearing.

    The stats are not currently up to date due to the missing data.


    Should be sorted out soon!

    l think that error message may be another reason why people are posting multiple times, because they think it hasn't worked.

    lf you get an error message, click on Scent of the Day on the green bar at the top of the main page, & you'll find that your SOTD has posted correctly.

    I can confirm that we are aware that the error message is appearing occasionally - ignore it, your SOTD should appear regardless.

    There are no plans to prevent people from posting their SOTD more than once, especially as we appreciate that some members are still playing 'catch up'.

    As for the odd discrepancy with dates, it is as stated above an issue to do with the 'Huddler gap'. Once the Huddler SOTD data has been restored that should no longer happen.

    This post was made as an issue

    Does anyone know if the ability to post SOTD to Facebook might return? My best guess is that it will not, since the ability to post to Twitter is already there, and if that's there, why wouldn't Facebook also be functional.

    It's on the list, but it's a bit more fiddly than sharing to twitter -- It's on my list of things to look at when we get properly settled!

    I inadvertently posted my SOTD twice today. I got an error message, and although I knew better that to post it again, a couple minutes later I experimented with reloading the error page. What I find interesting is the posting times. It looks like I reposted seconds later, but I actually reloaded the error page at least 2-3 minutes later.

    The Scent of the Day function is not working, it did this morning but this afternoon it will not post the scent. I tried 5 different times to add Nirmala by Molinard and it won't work.

    Kiliwia, I can confirm it's not working for me either. There was a brief shut down of the site this afternoon, it seems some things started to go wonky after that...

    Hi all!
    Please either post SOTD's in the relevant threads in MFD & FFD or wait until the SOTD feature fully returns later if that's the one normally used.
    Thanks & apologies for any inconvenience.

    Just wanted to say thanks for a great new feature; l've just noticed that when l click on my previous scents worn, it now shows the date each one was posted. Really pleased with this as it helps nerds like me to keep our stats up to date. Cheers!
