2016 was a huge year for ArtWanted! We wanted to create a post and highlight some of the big changes that happened in 2016 for all to read.
First off, we want to thank all of our members for their involvement in ArtWanted over the last year. We know that we made some big changes to the website this year and change is hard for everyone to get used to. You stuck with it, continued to upload art and participated on the site. Thanks for your feedback, suggestions and patience while we worked to improve the site.
The biggest change to ArtWanted this year was the complete redesign of the public website in June. Every page on the ArtWanted.com public site was rebuilt from the ground up with a new look and feel. It was important for us to not only update the design of ArtWanted.com, but also make every page look good on a mobile phone/tablet, as more and more people use their mobile devices to surf the web. We have received a ton of positive feedback on the site redesign and the changes we made.
In October, we introduced a whole new type of membership upgrade for artists that wanted their own personal website. Many of our members have already signed up for the new Premium Websites and we will continue to enhance these websites in 2017.
Here is a quick bullet list of some of the new features or upgrades that happened in 2016. Click on the title for more information about any upgrade.
We have many new features and upgrades already planned for 2017. One of the biggest upgrades you can look forward to is a complete redesign of our Members Area Control Panel. Not only will we be updating the design of our control panel where you manage your portfolio, but we will be making it much easier to use and adding a whole new help section. We encourage all members to continue to give us feedback and suggestions on how we can improve ArtWanted for everyone. Many of the changes that happened this year were a direct result of feedback from our members. Keep it coming!
We want to wish you a very happy new year and a great and prosperous 2017!
