    A list of features we are planning to add to the site, mostly in no particular order:

    * More work done on caching - this isn't exciting or sexy, but it will help to keep the site speedy and strong for years to keep up with our growing community! :)

    * Ability to filter the study store (Criteria like by tool, hide already purchased or full member-accessible, etc.)

    * Photographer credit management - so you can update your portfolio link on your submitted photos whenever you need to, or even have multiple credits (For example, if you want to include the model's name in the credits for some photo bundles as well)

    * Search tools for the forums

    * Add 1.5 hour class

    * Better pause for the tool countdown timer while the loading spinner is displaying

    * New study tool category: filter by age range

    * Pay for photo bundles with Alipay

    * Pay for subscriptions with Alipay

    * On a person's LoA anniversary, send them their oldest sketch of the year and their latest sketch of the year to see their progress.

    * Blocking other members from sending you PMs, responding to your forum topics, or commenting on your images

    * Better email settings

    * Ability for users to delete comments on their own images

    * Ability to design your own class-lengths with custom pose lengths and breaks (full subscription members only)

    * More streamlined method of requesting refund on photobundles

    * Categorization of sketchbook images

    Stuff being considered that may or may not get added

    * Social authentication, like logging in with your Google or Facebook account

    * Experience points? Levels of some kind? Maybe we'll just run a Habitica challenge! ;)

    * Site translations to other languages? Portuguese, Mandarin, Dutch and Japanese might be our biggest demand, looking at our analytics data. We do have volunteers who have mentioned maybe helping with translations to German and Spanish, as well, however.

    Completed

    * Push notifications! Want to be nagged to get your study in? Want to know right away when someone has left feedback on your critique requests? Added 1/13/2019

    * Doodlers and Full subscribers can choose to be forwarded directly to the image upload page after a practice session, with their current practice goal and the study time intervals they were working with already pre-filled into the description of the uploads... Automatic critique requests, just upload your work and hit go! Added 9/12/2018

    * Even deeper filtering for the practice tools: Want to only study people who are sitting down? Exclude images that feel too glamorous? Only draw birds seen from behind? Stay tuned. Completed 12/30/2018

    * Ads for non-subscribers -- doodlers and full subscribers won't see these, but soon non-subscribers can help support the site's continued upkeep and improving by seeing a few ads. Added 12/23/2018

    Greyscale mode and horizontal/vertical flipping of images has been added this morning as a feature to the drawing tools for members with a full subscription. :D

    More filtering tools just went into beta - they are currently only available in the Figure Study tool, and only to people who have a doodler or full subscription. I'm pretty excited about this one -- it's been a long while in the making.

    Raised the image upload size from 2MB to 5MB :)

    'Thanks for raising the upload size and please ...please never do the social authentaition bit....my take is if or when the hackers get to other sites and bring them down...will the domino fall and make this wonderfull site break down....so please for my two cents worth ..never, never do a social anything links and such for that reason...please and keep up the great work as I for one love it here and it really, really, really inpires an old cartoonist like me to be here.

    You're welcome, and thanks for that feedback :) I'm so glad you find the site useful!

    I hope I can put your mind at ease though: Social authentication would not put our site at risk of going down if one of the other sites was hacked. The main thing that would happen is that people who used to sign in using only Facebook (or whatever) would not be able to sign in that way anymore, and would have to resort to having a site-specific username and password here.
