1. Comment user profiles. I'm attaching an image of what I have in mind. We need for people to be able to make comments to the browseprofile page. They should be limited to 10 comments per page, viewable by all, only users can comment, and not allow for html. The newest comments appear at top and the user has the ability to remove comments posted on their collection page.
2. Search users. I know we started this before but now we realize that we just really need this functionality. Put in small text under the current search field a link that says "Search Users". Then just in a new simple page, include a search field that searches either name or username. The search results should display icons of their user image with user name under neath similar to the bag search result page.
3. Number of followers. Similar to twitter, is it possible under the user's location to display a number indication the number of users following their collection. If that is possible, then could you make it a link that directs to a page that displays the users that are following that person.
4. Email updates. Can you add an email function that alerts an individual when anyone comments their profile page or an individual bag page. An email would be sent informing a user that their collection has received a comment. This should be controlled by a preference on a user's profile page that can enable or disable this function.
I know you're working on the new project but it would be good if you could pause that until we get these taken care of. The good news is that means more work for you. Please get back to me if you have any questions and with how much you think this is worth and I will start another project on GAF.
IMPORTANT could you include brands to what the current search parameters are looking for. For example, if you search for "marc jacobs", nothing shows up in the results. But if you click on the designer "marc jacobs" you see the 3 marc jacobs that have been added so far. thanks.
