I’d like to request an “about” tab in the header to include:
A “play nice” rule. while your faq’s are pretty clear about not harassing members, I see a lot of nasty comments and attitudes on blog posts. Recently, on Alison Dahl’s lovely last project, some people went off on a tangent about wearing the cream colored dress to a wedding as well as the model’s nipples. Thankfully, you’ve removed them. The only negative feedback I want to read is from people who’ve made the pattern & had issues with it.
Also, in regards to “play nice,” negative body comments are never appropriate for this site. Not about a specific model and not about body types in general. While I understand that members may be offended or disenfranchised by bodies shorter, taller, bigger, or smaller than their own, I don’t believe Burdastyle is the appropriate place to air your negative opinions. There is a very good chance that someone frequenting this site has a similar body type and would find your comments hurtful.
Which leads to: in the about tab, please explain where the majority of the patterns come from now, i.e. from the Burdastyle Magazine. If you don’t receive all of a month’s patterns for download, can you mention that you only receive a limited number of collections & that you don’t choose them. I assume that most members think that “you” are still drafting these patterns, like when the site first started, and no doubt are puzzled why the patterns only come in certain sizes. Every single pattern batch conversation ends up about the sizing: plus, standard, tall, petit.
Also, please post “petit,” “tall,” or “plus” in the pattern descriptions. This would also save the inevitable “what does the sizing mean?”
Plus sized patterns~ you don’t seem to receive very many of them. Perhaps you can link to Burdastyle.de when they upload theirs, as well as a tutorial for how to buy from their site.
Thank You :)
