As some of you have seen, the Submit Look form changed this week. The new version includes a selection for Look Type at the top, to allow for new kinds of looks to be shared (more on that below).
There have been some issues with the way images are ordered in the "additional images" section, and to counter that I've created a page where you can set your own order for the images. To do this, click the 'rearrange images' link on your look page.
Update! Setting the order of additional images has now been integrated into the normal edit look page. Simply drag and drop them into the arrangement you want to see on the look page and press update, and the order will be saved.
Group Looks are a solution for people who didn't like the "one look per look page" rule. The rule was created so that the site's search and categorization features wouldn't be compromised, but understandably, a lot of people like to pose with their friends! Group Look pages solve this by not using the normal categories and instead linking to at least one individual look page. If you've previously had a group look removed and want it restored, get in touch with the contact form.
Voting on Group Looks is slightly different. Instead of sliders for the Armor and Dye choices, the first two sliders on Group Look pages are for how the armor sets chosen work together, and on the choice of location. The sliders for originality, screenshots, and description remain unchanged.
I've always been a fan of the amazing art created by the GW2 community. Sometimes I see looks that include such artwork in the additional images section, but for a while I've wanted to let people feature their work a bit more. Art Looks are similar to group looks in that they link to a normal look page. But instead of featuring screenshots, they are intended to show off your original GW2-related creations. Medal voting is disabled on Art Look pages but constructive comments are welcome!
Looks with Town Clothes or Medium armor specified can now select up to four ranger pets to be displayed next to their other accessories.
A lot of work went into this update, but I'm still working on a number of things that haven't made it live yet. I wanted to get the parts that were ready-enough out and start collecting your feedback on them, so I went ahead even though there are more improvements needed.
