It has recently come to my attention that the items I have uploaded/clipped to Polyvore cannot be found. On the 18th of September I sent the following email to Polyvore —
Seems with your latest update, people are no longer able to find my items via search. I realize you were trying to lessen the “noise” for me, but I had assumed it was a “tweak” to the interface, not making my items impossible for others to find.
It used to be that a simple search for “comcast trees” or “comcast.net trees” would return any trees that I had uploaded via my comcast.net account and had tagged as “trees” … or … if I created a query along the lines of http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/search.things?displayurl=comcast.net&tag=trees trees would show up … not anymore (I have had more than one person tell me about this).
If I had unlimited storage in my comcast account, I wouldn’t worry about this problem, I’d just leave everything up on the server so folks could find them there. But this is a personal (ie, free) account and I must continually delete things in order to upload more.
I received a response back almost immediately that it would be looked into.
