Minted News: Updates to the Artist Community Experience

After the launch of our redesigned artist community experience last month, we received a ton of great feedback from our community members and we’re excited to announce some new features and bug fixes today.

1. New: Challenges Activity Feed
Get up to date on what’s happening with challenges on the Challenges page. From there, you can click through to get more info on each currently open Challenge; you can also see the most-recent submissions for the different challenges in the activity feed. We’re planning to add latest comments, likes, and other challenge-related activity to the feed in near future.

2. New: View all Winners and Editor’s Picks for Each Challenge
Now you’ll be able to check out all of the winners and Editor’s Picks awards for any challenge on the Challenge page. (For example, you can now see all winners and Editors Picks for the West Elm Challenge that occurred earlier this year.)

3. Fix: Filter All Submissions in a Challenge to Find Open Polls
Now you can more easily weigh in on open polls in a challenge. Simply go to the homepage of that Challenge, go to the Submissions panel, and click on “Polls” in the “Browsing By” drop-down menu. This will filter all the submissions that have an open poll.

4. Fix: See All Submissions Sorted by Score Once Winners Have Been Announced
We’ve fixed the issue that had prevented you from sorting all design submissions in a challenge by a decreasing order of their score once the winners had been announced. Now, once you’re in the “Submissions” panel of a Challenge page, you will see an option to sort by “Score” in the “Sorted By” drop-down menu. (For example, check out this new sorting feature on the “On a Roll” fabric challenge page.)

5. Fix: Receive an Email When Your Design is “Liked” on the Challenge Page
When we launched our redesign last month, you no longer received an email when your submissions were liked by other artists on the Challenge pages. This is now fixed and you should once again be receiving an email when your design submissions are liked.

We hope you enjoy these latest additions and, as always, please share your feedback in the comments so we can continue to improve your artist experience on Minted.*** A new update on June 04th 2015

We are super excited to introduce a new Polls widget to help you quickly take open polls in a challenge. To see the widget, go to any open challenge, and click on the ‘Help Decide’ button on the ‘polling now’ section of the page. Once you take a poll, the widget automatically forwards you to the next poll and shows you the results of the previous poll that you just took at the bottom of the widget.

With only 4 more days to get feedback and improve your submissions for the Holiday challenge, help your fellow artists with their submissions by quickly taking all the open polls for this challenge here:https://www.minted.com/challenge/217#pollingPanel.

Hope you enjoy using the new widget.
