New Year's (Doll-Related) Resolutions

Type: Blog post, 0 comments

Happy New Year!

You know what that means -- New Year's resolutions!!

My "big" doll resolutions for 2013 are:

  1. Buy little.
  2. Play more.
  3. Sell extras.
  4. Extend Dollation.
  5. Promote Dollation.
  6. Track my collection. (<-- This is the big one!)

What are your resolutions? Create a blog post and share them!

I'm going to need strategies to keep these resolutions.

Happy Holidays and What's New!

Paper Minis Web Site

This is a great resource for making accessories for our dolls! When you subscribe to her newsletter, Ann Vanture sends you an email link to her downloadable projects. There are all sorts of fun things. She makes them available in various sizes for miniature doll houses and dolls. The one that is available for 18" dolls is the 1:3 size.   The current offer is a Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes book that can be made for our girls. There are directions for downloading and how to put them together.

New to Dollation! And need help.

I've had a good time looking around Dollation and enjoying everyone's pictures. 

I've tried to add my collection and the page will not accept my product. I own a GOTZ doll and it says it's not on the list of products. Does that mean it's not on "my" list and if so how do I add it. It is on the list in "By Companies". 

I would like to use this feature is someone could help me out.

Thanks so much!

Almost there! (New server)

Dollation.com is back and is up and running on its new server! In celebration, we've decided to consider the site in official beta test phase. (Woo hoo!)

Besides being more reliable, this new server allows us to upload huge pictures and to have the site itself scale them down to a reasonable size. This makes adding pictures to albums and the Dollipedia a lot easier and more fun. 

Server!!!

And what is this?!

Well, yes, it is the handsome JAG, but he is holding in his hands the parts for the new Dollation server! Yes, we are finally going to go beyond the constraints of our current VPS (Virtual Private Server) and have our own, dedicated server. Merry Christmas, Ruby!

These guidelines will become part of the Member Agreement, but I thought I'd share them here first since that document is not yet done.

I have a lot of dolls!

I am having a wonderful time adding my dolls to Dollation! When I should be working on the "mechanics" of making the website better (like making those pesky 500 Internal Server Errors go away [Edited to add, they should be gone, yay!]), instead I'm uploading new pictures of my favorite dolls and researching the brands and companies behind them to share in the Dollipedia. Dolls are fun! Sharing dolls is even more fun!

The Trouble with Links

Type: Blog post, 4 comments

Hello, most wonderful testers! I'm very happy to see you taking up the challenge and adding content to Dollation. It's exciting to see new things being added and distracting because I want to follow every link and learn about each new doll that is shared. smiley

Of Pictures and Privacy

Pictures on Dollation.com are problematic for a number of reasons. This blog post is an effort to organize my thoughts around the issues so I can make the right design decisions.
