It started with removing average karma. Now, there's no more strict karma filter. Just three options: On, Off, and First Look.

First Look, as you might imagine, is only those who are posting to LB for the first time... Which means, that about 90% of those looks fall into one of two categories: rule-breakers, OR complete shite.

Seems that things are going downhill, at least as far as overall quality is concerned.

even easier for us to get rid of crap pictures but completely annoying for people who want to see good ones. i can imagine it's due to the demand of newbies that want to be seen

Yup. I just wish the owners and developers would choose to have more communication with the users. I for one, would like to know a bit about what they're doing and why... If they don't want to give people a say in these matters, that's fine too -- but at least knowing the direction LB is taking would be helpful.

It would be particularly helpful to know if the fact that there's no more "Lite" filter and no more average karma, means that the threshold to make the "new" page has changed.

I get Karma filter ON, OFF and "first look".

Lookbook has been very slow and glitchy for me these past days. I can hardly navigate. Does anyone else get this?

Nope. The karma change is new (not sure why or how it works now though -- but "first look" is self-explanatory).

As for the slowness... Standard troubleshooting procedure.

-Turn computer off
-Unplug modem/router
-Wait 30 sec.
-Plug modem/router back in
-Turn computer back on
-Clear browser history, cache and cookies
-Try LB again

I'm quite dissapointed with this new karma filter thing because I used to have my looks on the strict karma filter then for some reason they "dropped" to the lite filter and now I'm afraid that my looks won't be showing on the Karma filter ON page :/ I haven't tested yet though... In a way I hope they wouldn't because that would mean that every lite filter look would be showing now on the Karma ON page. and that would mean that it's even harder to be seen by others...

Well, now I have tested it and noup, my looks aren't showing on the Karma ON page. This means that my looks will be even less hyped from now on. This makes me really sad. I hope they will change it back...

Hm, I tried that and it didn't work still. Only LB was slow for a few days and now it seems back to normal. Maybe it had to do with lots of site activity?

One small suggestion to the code team... Restart using the yellow background on the notifications/news page for new notifications...

Hey Jim,
how do you know, that there's no more average karma?

I have read sooo many topics in the forum these last days and I'm just confused like I had been before.
I have noticed, that usually my looks got ~50 Hypes at all, but now with the "new" Karma On/Off filter, they get much much less.

Does anyone know, why the filter thing has been changed?

Must be code thursday. Banner at the top of the screen is B&W now, and there's no mention as to how many people have posted new looks next to the Feed link.

Alright, I always thought I totally get how this site works but now even I'm seriously confused. I always defended the Hype/Karma/Hot page system because it was fair. People who got more hypes in a certain time frame were further up the Hot page. Now I noticed that it makes no sense anymore. Looks with far less hypes in a far longer time frame are a lot further up the Hot page than looks with more hypes in a shorter time frame. How does this work now? Which factors are being taken into consideration now that determine certain looks' position on the page?

My head hurts... Just checked the feed page. Keeps going back and forth. Now, it's back to the old page. In the morning, it'll probably be the "updated" version with the random photo placement, like it has been for the past 3 days.

I'm beginning to think that either facebook plans to take over the site, or some of the programmers are working for lookbook now. All I know is that, if this keeps going, there will be mass confusion...

*sigh* (yes, again)... Think they're now using the old page on odd days, and the random look placement feed page on even days. It switched back yet again.

Looks like the feed isn't working (was working for a while yesterday, after being dead after the maintenance), and there are issues with notifications not showing up anymore.

I don't get any notifications, my feed doesn't update and I usually have 100 hypes but now I only get 9. I thought they'd do something about the less famous LB'ers but this is even worse !

It looks like things are working now.

Now, whether or not peoples' hypes will go back up, we'll see. I've noticed that I went from reliably getting 50-90 hypes per look within 2-3 days to getting maybe 35-45 over two weeks ever since the post timer was removed. I think part of it is because a lot of people have gone back to the default karma filter settings to get rid of the spam.

Guys, please take off my doubt: i´ve got less participative on LB in the past few weeks, so they passed me from the spotlight column, to the up and coming AGAIN! Is this fair concerning their rules? It is all about this "logarithm" thing? I was receiveng an average of 100 hypes after posting hundreds of pictures (rs) and now i have an average of 4 to 5 hypes kk it´s like a joke, really, and an iron man of patience! waiting to hear from you..thks!!

Here we go again...

1) Stream pages keep flipping back and forth between the older stylesheet and the new one.
2) Some people have lost fans (in my case, 155 have disappeared)
3) Amount of members being followed by others keeps going up and down at random (currently, I show 397 people I'm following. A couple hours ago, it was 307.

The Donald Trump-like flip-flopping of the stream has been going on for at least a month or so. The other issues cropped up after Thursday night's server unavailability issue.

I noticed as well that everyone's fan counters decreased. I guess they deleted inactive members which is good imo :)

More code mucking... Notifications page sometimes shows only new notifications, sometimes shows that there's one notification, but nothing is there. Been that way since the weekend.

I can't see in 'feed' section looks from persons whom I'm a fan.
