Over the next few weeks we're adding more features to make following your favourite artists easier, and bug fixing.

We'll soon be doing more linking from our main social media to feature artists, contests etc.

If you have any ideas, questions or feedback, let us know here.

What I miss:
- when I evaluate a figure, there is no change for the next one, I have to manually click "next" button.
- the order of the figures during evaluation is derived from the sorting order in the main view, there is no selecton algorithm (!!). In the previous version, the algorithm was faulty, but it was much better than what we currently have. If "next" button would select a new figure that I didn't vote on yet, that would be much better.
- 100 poor quality figures uploaded for auctions by one person per day is what kills this site. Hard to look, evaluate and have fun if from hobby site CMON changed to "figures ebay". Also - it broke the selection algorithm. It was almost impossible to get 50 votes if the figure was below strong 8, as people get tired having to vote on few dozens of poor figures thrown in by the same seller at the same time.
- total classification on the site was a nice feature in the past
- what happened with the votes of unregistered users?
This rework of the site was much needed. I honestly thought that it was dead.

The auto-voting behaviour is only triggered when you click "Discover and Vote", so as not to create confusion for new users in a gallery with backwards and forwards buttons. Same as the "next". We'll try to make it more obvious for logged in users in future.

The unregistered user votes are stored, but are no longer displayed. We're moving on to only counting registered user votes.

Fixed a permissions error which was preventing some registered users from creating new threads/posts.

We've added a checkbox next to the voting where you can select "Auto-Next" if you're voting in a gallery somewhere. It will still show you figures you've voted on before since this is a gallery view based on whatever sorting criteria you selected. Only Discover and Vote will be truly random, we'll be adding something to the menu to make it clearer (a dice icon).

Hi, where did the favorites I saved over the years go?

Nice work Chern!

- I think I miss top artists.
- There is a problem nowadays that information is scattered everywhere. Instead of articles on site perhaps some way to post and organize interesting and useful tutorials from all over the web.

Browsing:
- I would like to have a filter "I rated/I didn't rate". Considering that I rated tens of tousands of figures, it would be nice to have this history :)
- why is paging gone? Infinite scroll is impractical and hard to navigate. Let's say I want to look for something specific that requires going through a lot of entries. If I'm not able to finish in one go, I'll just remember the filter and on which page I stopped. Easy to come back to that later.

Paging and infinite scrolling now combined - you can leave the tab and come back, and it'll move to the last place you went to. Looking into the first suggestion.

Not sure if I'm not doing something wrong:
Let's say I browse the gallery. I scroll down to the bottom of the page. I see paging buttons for, like, 0.25s, and then immediately next page loads, no chance to click them. Let's say that I want to start from the page 1345 - that's ok, I use url https://www.coolminiornot.com/browse/1345. Let's say that I want to move to pages with higher numbers - that's fine, I scroll, another page loads, url changes, so I know where I am. But what if I want to move into the other direction? For now I'd have to edit url every time I want to move back one page.
Also - when next page loads, already loaded ones remain, and, judging by myself, sometimes I browse a lot. There is a lot of pictures there - is that practical if it comes to memory usage?
I really appreciate, that you use your time to update CMON. It brought me a lot of joy for many years.

We've made some additional tweaks to address this, let me know how it works. You have to intentionally scroll quite far down in order to trigger the infinite scroll now.
