Site Updates - Beta 63 - Gallery Stats, Faving Users List

We have updated the site to version 63.

The most interesting additions today are the Gallery Statistics page and the Faving Users list.

Gallery Stats is a link at the top of every userpage that will show you the most viewed, most faved and most commented images in a member's gallery. It also lets you sort by any of those three stats.

The Faving Users list shows you who has faved a submission. You can see this by clicking the favs count listed below every submission. (Note: We have updated this feature so it works only for the submission owner).

There's a few other useful changes and improvements in this release too!

Updates

* Fixed: A bug was causing user icons to align strangely in Chrome. Now user icons can be stacked horizontally in rows in Chrome.

* Added: A Gallery statistics page has been added, which lets you quickly see which submissions have the most views, favs or comments in your gallery or other user's galleries. Just click the "Stats" link at the top of any user page.

* Added: There is now a list of users who have faved a particular submission. You can see this list by clicking the fav count on a submission page. (Note: We have updated this feature so it works only for the submission owner).

* Fixed: A bug in the PNG Optimiser was causing certain PNG image files to be changed as the optimiser was run, sometimes altering line thickness particularly in black and white images.

* Added: Stats page now counts and displays total pages/files on the site. Previously it just displayed total submissions count, but as we allow multi page submissions, this didn't represent the true size of our archive.

* Changed: The site members list page now shows dates when you sort the members by "newest first", so it's clear when members joined.

* Changed: The watches/watched by members list page now shows dates when you sort the members by "date added", so it's clear when members watched you, or when you watched them.

* Changed: The default sort order is now by date for the list of users watching your account, and the list of users you watch.

* Changed: Deployment documentation updates.

* Fixed: Minor bugs in the administrator functions and admin menu system.

* Fixed: Other minor bugs here and there!

Thanks

Great features, nice to see a site that gets it right.
To Starling and the IB admin, you seem to have the golden touch.

Keep up the good work.

A favorites list per-picture! Nice! It was one of those things I'd forgotten to ask about, but again you guys just added it right in. Very cool. =)

One of those little features we've been asked for since the site started haha. Just never got around to it before now!

hah, been wondering when there would be a list for who favorited, and the extra stats like at deviantart is always interesting to know

You know what would be cool, being able to customize your profile page

The stat view just seems to be the gallery view with drop down sorting options. Having them be two separate things is a bit redundant. Are they going to be merged into one view in a future/2.0 version of Inkbunny? Would be nice to just have that kind of sorting power on any list of submissions.
starling
4 years, 6 months ago
The stats info gets in the way in limited screen space. Normal gallery mode is where people spend most of their time and they don't need the stats.

With them merged and an on/off switch for stats, it wasn't clear there was even a stats option.

Sorting for plain gallery mode would be useful in some circumstances but takes up more room again. Maybe in a future version yeah!

I would say you could always make a CSS override in your browser! Might be tricky on a phone, though.

Still should be a commission-sheet category...and perhaps a direct link to directly access a user's commission sheet/info on users' pages, so if someone likes an artist, they can go directly to that artist's commission info, be it from the main page or from any submission, much like the donation link currently is.

d.m.f.

As a chrome user.... THANK YOU! ^_^

It was minor, but that bug always got under my skin... T~T

Any idea how far down the road the ability to fave journals is?

Oh my god, the faving users list is the best little essential feature you've added in months. Thank you so much! Now I'm much more likely to wipe my notices as I get them instead of leaving them there a couple of weeks. :D

And I was JUST THINKING how nice it would be if there was a way
to see who faved what in a gallery. WOW you guys are ON THE BALL!! ;D

Also you can read minds!! What's up with that??! O.O  ( ;D )
GreenReaper
4 years, 6 months ago
Well, we could already read PMs, so this was just the logical next step . . .

I think being able to see who faved images in your own gallery is good.... but being able to see who faved images in someone else's gallery is wrong. :V

This is the exact reason I don't fave a lot of images.
starling
4 years, 6 months ago
Your favs are made public anyway. All anyone has to do is click favorites on your userpage.  :O

We have a private favs feature in the wishlist! So you'll be able to choose when you fav something who will be able to see that you faved it.
BunnyFoxglove
4 years, 6 months ago
While it's true they can see my faves by going to my account (which is another reason I don't fave stuff) this new feature exposes everyone. So someone who doesn't know me, would see that I faved certain things...

Even FA doesn't allow that. You can view the people who fave your pics, but it doesn't expose them to everyone else. It's really no one else's business who faved it other than the artist who drew it. It's a privacy issue, and I feel very strongly that this is wrong. I feel even worse about faving stuff now than I did before.
starling
4 years, 6 months ago
Hmm yeah I can see that it's most useful to the artist and not much use to others. Easily fixed :P

That was pretty awesome of you, though I am saddened to see the end of the ability to see which of my friends and heroes favourited a pic. :)

While I *like* people being able to easily see the kinds of things I"m into, I can see BunnyFoxglove's point that it might be nice to be able to hide faves.

Might be nice if you could elect to hide various blocks from your profile, or even to select which favorites are shown publicly, Hentai-Foundry-style. But I worry that it might affect the open, inclusive, and accepting feel of the community. It might also have unwanted secondary effects, like discouraging commenting ("I shouldn't comment this, or what's the point of hiding the fact that I fav'd it?")
starling
4 years, 6 months ago
Actually we have "private comments" as a feature in the wishlist too. :D

Cools.  One quick question, though: is there a way to change the default order on watcher lists to something other than by date?
starling
4 years, 6 months ago
No way to change default, but the only other sort option is alphabetical. Most of the time people want to see who watched them most recently, so it's the default.
Shokuji
4 years, 6 months ago
Is there an easy way of allowing people to set their own defaults, or is that pretty difficult to code for?
starling
4 years, 6 months ago
Sure, but for that view it doesn't make sense to me. Why would you want the watched/watching names listed alphabetically all the time? The most common use-case is to see who most recently watched you (or who you most recently watched).
Shokuji
4 years, 6 months ago
I could imagine that some people would like to check (for some reason or another) if someone is watching them. I do realize that the time it takes to change the view is tiny but people do enjoy personalization which is why I asked if there was an easy way of coding it so people can set their own defaults. =) But I'm sure there are more pressing matters to deal with anyways. X3

Edit: Nevermind, I forgot about the namecolor thingy. X3 Well my scenario is out, but maybe there's another reason. I don't know, heh!

Gallery stats are awesome, faving user lists are useful too!

Has the delay on uploaded PNG files been improved? I notice when I submit a JPG it goes a heck of a lot faster than a PNG. This isn't about file size, btw, the sizes can be similar but the PNG will take notably longer.

Thanks for all the time & effort the staff puts into the site.
starling
4 years, 6 months ago
PNGs get optimised after upload. The upload status text will tell you that, and I expect the delay you see is during optimisation. Should only take 5 - 10 secs to optimise a PNG.
Shokuji
4 years, 6 months ago
I'll have to time it next time I try it. I'll also see if it's just a chrome thing by trying it on different browsers too.

I did not notice the Gallery Stats and Faving Users list until I saw this journal entry.  Thanks for creating these nice features.

Oh my god I love Gallery Stats SO MUCH!

I would love to be able to define my own sort, though. I love stats like Faves per View, Views per Day, etc
Jacinth
4 years, 6 months ago
Most views in the last 30 days....
GreenReaper
4 years, 6 months ago
Yes, I think Fav/View is an important stat. It's one thing to get people to look at something, but quite another to get them to like it!
