I’m sad

Why the changes?

Why are some backgrounds and stickers that were free, now for purchase? Also, why can I not continue working while using the uploader? I used to be able to.

    Paula, I thought we couldnt work in the builder anymore whilst uploading, but actually you can. At least I can.
    I upload and once it started uploading the first file, I just clcik close and go to the builder, carry on working.
    A while later when I check my photos, they have uploaded.
    One thing I have noticed is that the quality of photos decreases a lot when in the builder, it did not happen before....
    As to the priced stickers, yes,.... I even bought another program, so I can use my PNGs....but to do the Scrapblog team justice (though it anmnoys me as much as everyone else that we have to pay for most) they DID SAY in the beginning that stickers that were one day free could be later on priced and vice versa...

    I also know they have said in the forums they are working out a solution...but for the time being.....oh well...

  • I’m bit sad...
    and one more change which makes it really, really difficult for me to keep on... I was just finishing a SB I made of the third week of our trip, and when I tried to open a page of an old SB, it doesn't have that possibilty anymore....
    There is also the fact that, because of the new *packs* my purchased stickers have all been changed of order, so I'm not sure where anything is anymore (I knew by when I bought them, I knew the page each sticker was in) which in 18 pages of stickers is not little time to browse...)
    It also brings the *packs* page every time one clicks to search for anything, no matter what, it keeps taking you to that...
    I almost had a heart attack when I clicked the first time after the changes in search for my purchased stickers and told me *sorry you dont have any*
    I know is a silly thing, one just clicks on STickers in the left side of the page and it goes there...but for someone with my athrosis, arthritis and many other health problems which make at time my right side of the body go paralyzed, is not a nice perspective...

    I know you need to make the money....but I'm dissapointed by the way this is going, sorry...:)

    The builder's new layout is cool, easier to navigate the pages, and the program as usual: has no rival.
    I just hope the possibility of some kind of premium membership comes into effect sooner rather than later, for people like me...
    I have spend money in Scrapblog (and you guys know is not little money I'm talking about) and don't wanna stop doing so...it's just that it's getting out of my league... :(
    • Hi Mrs. Peel,
      The importing from a previous Scrapblog issue is a small oversight that we caught and are working on. In the mean time, you can always get around it by opening a new Scrapblog and importing the Scrapblog you wish to work on into it. It will then allow you to add pages from previous Scrapblogs.

  • Change is not always for the better! Actually -I was very fond of the 'good old days' when 'Scrapblog' was slightly amateurish and we had less choices and maybe -dare I say - a closer-knit community! However, I realise that this is a business and must progress to survive! I remember having just as much fun when the 'original' Scrapblog launched (before it was smartened up and relaunched.) Then there were only a very few stickers, backgrounds and frames -no themes, as far as I remember. With less on offer the creator has to use more imagination and individuality and search for resources elsewhere. Sometimes simpler is better!

  • I’m understanding
    Meg yes, Thank you.
    I read in Facebook what Jessica found out for me, and that the open a page from an old SB is still in use, so that makes me sleep a lot tighter.
    I'm not sure if I *Totally* agree with Cazjane, as we are in a technologycakl medium and advances are inevitable...also I actually LOVE the new builder, love having new stickers and stuff to play with, I just ignore the themes and quiack pages most of teh time, unless is to find inspiration, I use my creativity a lot all the time, but have to agree that I loved the smaller comunity, but also you guys need to move on...is (in my case) a simple fact that I m finding I can't really afford it much this way.

    Also (as I posted in the forums, which I find much easier) I have a problem with the new way the storage is:
    My purchased stickers were in order of buying them, meaning that the ones I bought first were in the last pages, the ones I bought more recently in the first pages...now with the changes, the stickers are all mixed...
    Even stickers which I bought together, at the same time, because they are from the same kit, are not together anymore...that means I now have to go through all the pages because two stickers that were together before are one in page 6 and the other in page 18 (for example)
    it would be great if we could have the option to make folders with the stcikers, or group them by some kind of guidance.
    One thing I saw happening which is good and it did not work before is that now if I search by tags, it will search in my purchased stickers, if not totally accurately, at least is a more aproxed way to find them....

    Sorry about being a pain, you know how we (old and sick and grumpy LOL) people are!!!
    But we gotta complain if we find something doesn't work well....in the end of the day, you now have a CEO (wow) and it was us (you know who we are) who brought SB a bit to where it is now....
    (And you & Rebecca are just such hugely nice people, it's difficult to me to be grumpy with you both!!!! lol)

    Thanks so much, Mrs. Peel for your continued patience as we grow and work to make Scrapblog better every day. I will definitely keep your suggestion in mind and bring it up when we all get together next. I think its great that you are providing your feedback on the new builder, because it is a Beta version after all, so we're constantly improving and changing it.
    Keep your suggestions coming, please! They are always listened to and considered ;)
