    I would love to be able to filter most these images of women OUT so I can enjoy real art and design and also more pictures of men. Nothing against the girls, they look beautiful, but things are too unbalanced and boring. If you want to be turned on all day long like a freaking rabbit you might use Piccsy’s “hello kisses” and leave us to admire the all beautiful things of the world in a more balanced way.

    It would be cool if there was a way of sharing my Tumblr post with Piccsy as i’m having to do it manually at the moment.

    1) OneClick Bookmarking
    2) iPad App
    3) iPhone App (mobile site would probably do the trick)
    4) Multiple image piccing (with a common title and the same tags) – not on the list, but should be.
    5) Online multiple-choice forms instead of manually collecting data.

    Do not expose stack traces in production env :/

    Database_Exception [ 1062 ]: Duplicate entry ‘60532-ff1bef-320-240.jpg’ for key ‘url’ [ INSERT INTO… I removed this content, because it can be used to hacked your db and acquire our passwords!

    Dear Piccsy team, please be more careful!
    PS
    Don’t be mad, because my feedback. It is good for Piccsy community ;]

    That you not only have a firefox app… but also a \Google Chrome app
    And that it’s one click bookmarking thing.

    And curation somehow… there’s more and more crap getting on piccsy :-s

    PLease: No animated gif

    I would love to be able to bulk upload images. I have a ton of cool images I have found over the years and would love to be able to use piccsy as my online dumping ground for my inspirational pics.

    - Animated .gif Support
    is entertaining but watch out: gifs are way too space consuming (since piccsy grab images and host them in a piccsy server, as I can see from the img url. I mean: a 200-400kb gif shoould be ok, but the most hilarious are often more than 1-2Mb.)

    My 3 top picks are:

    1. Larger Images InPost (when the picc posted is large, of course. No enlarging interpolation by piccsy, of course, I hope)

    2. Video Support (same as gif concerns if video hosting is mandatory)

    3. – Better/More Diverse Similar Images – that’s what image bookmarking’s for, uh? Discovering similar images and more inspiring imgs. (imho)

    In addiction, the last two picks are suggestions:

    4. Avoid (or a better handling of) general tags: photography, illustration, design, art. They mess up the “flag as duplicate” option. Or, instead, providing a better way to organize tags, maximizing the impact of the less recurrent ones. (I hope I’m not confusing…)

    5. I’m with Carlos Sang: “BONUS. Detection of duplicated content: the first same submitted picture should be considered the original”. very clever.

    Also, page navigation through use of the left and right arrow keys (like tumblr) would be great.

    Would be good to have an easy way to make a bookmarklet for touch interface (where you can’t drag)

    API would be cool too, peeps might make apps for you then :-)

    I would prefer, before anything else is changed, to work on improving the stability of Piccsy. Especially as of late, the site is increasingly slow and at times crashes. Maybe Piccsy needs to implement more servers.

    Sorry for bad english :/

    1 – Infinite page navigation, i mean, just keep scrolling down and not by pages, would be awesome.

    2 – Chrome Addon

    3 – Please, no customization of the personal page. Don’t turn this into a tumblr :/

    4 – A quicly way to post images: Save them all , select them all at the same time, and just add it, would be fucking awesome, except for the tagging part.

    5 – A nsfw hide/show botton on all the pages, more quicly then going to the profile all the time

    DON’T

    (DO NOT)

    ADD THE FOLLOWING…

    Customization
    – Change Profile Name Option
    —–YOU CHOSE IT, STICK WITH IT.

    – Customization of Personal Pages (backgrounds, colors, etc. like Twitter).
    —–PICCSY IS NOT TWITTER, THAT’S WHY WE LIKE IT.

    – Integration of HelloKisses and Piccsy Accounts
    —–THERE ARE ENOUGH PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE PORNOGRAPHY (NOT TASTEFUL INNUENDO AND LIGHT NUDITY) THAT IS ALREADY THERE (AND I SIDE WITH THEM), DON’T FUEL THE FIRE.

    – Option to Revise Default Thumbnail/Preview Size
    —–YOU GUYS ALREADY DO AN AWESOME JOB OF THAT.

    Images
    – Animated .gif Support
    —–PICCSY IS NOT TUMBLR, THAT’S WHY WE LIKE IT.

    – If Poster Deletes Image, Image Remains as ‘by deleted’
    —–IT TAKES ABOUT A MONTH AND A HALF TO ADD 1,000 (ONE THOUSAND) PAGES TO PICCSY NOW-A-DAYS AND THAT TIME IS GETTING SHORTER BY THE DAY, DO YOU REALLY WANT MORE CLUTTER AND USELESS CONTENT?

    – Image Previews: Show Tags / Add Tags on Hover
    —–AGAIN WITH THE CLUTTER.

    – Option to Select Preview Area instead of Auto-Crop
    —–WE TRUST YOU TO DO THE CROPPING, YOU HAVE NOT LET US DOWN YET.

    – Private Images
    —–ISN’T THAT WHAT EMPTY FOLDERS ON YOUR COMPUTER DESKTOP ARE FOR? PICCSY IS A PICTURE SSSHHHAAARRRIIINNNGGG SITE.

    – Video Support
    —–PICCSY IS NOT YOUTUBE, THAT’S WHY WE LIKE IT.

    Misc
    – API
    —–DON’T. JUST DON’T.

    – See Posts, Not Piccs
    —–I LIKE THIS BUT YOU CAN JUST AS EASILY LOGIN THEN TYPE “PICCSY.COM/POST” IN THE URL LINE AND VOILA!

    Mobile
    – iPad App
    —–AGAIN, AN AVALANCHE OF CLUTTER.

    – iPhone App

    Social
    – More External Sharing Options
    —–WHY COMPROMISE THE EXCLUSIVITY?

    – More Invites
    —–SO OUR MOMS CAN JOIN?

    – Flag User
    —–IT WOULD NOT MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE. CASE IN POINT: NBmaster!!!

    YOU ARE LOOSING SIGHT OF YOUR IDENTITY. YOU’RE TRYING TO BE LIKE TUMBLR AND TWITTER AND YOUTUBE AND FACEBOOK. WHY? I THINK YOU DO A GOOD JOB OF WHAT YOU DO. THAT JOB BEING…NOT THEIR JOB! PEOPLE LOVE PICCSY BECAUSE IT IS SIMPLE (READ:SOPHISTICATED) AND USER FRIENDLY. THERE IS NO TUMBLR AND TWITTER TYPE BULLSHIT TO TWEAK AND WASTE TIME ON. WHAT’S NEXT THEN? ADVERTISING FROM GOOGLE RUNNING UP AND DOWN THE SIDES OF THE PICS? PICCSY IS COOL BECAUSE IT’S NOT A SELLOUT SITE AND IT’S UNIQUE. I KNOW FOR A FACT YOUR SERVER IS OVERWORKED, WE ALL DO. DO YOU WANT TO MAKE IT WORSE BY ADDING A BUNCH OF UNNECESSARY BELLS AND WHISTLES? THAT SOUNDS LIKE A FAST TRACK TO PISSING OFF THE LOYAL FANS THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE. DON’T WORRY ABOUT YOUR POPULARITY. WE EACH GET TWO INVITES. 2 (TWO). THAT MEANS THAT EXPONENTIAL GROWTH IN MEMBER VOLUME IS POSSIBLE. EACH NEW MEMBER IS POTENTIALLY 2 MORE NEW MEMBERS. IMAGINE WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOU GET TO THE TIPPING POINT IN NEW MEMBERS. YOUR SERVER WILL UNPLUG ITSELF UNDER THAT MUCH STRESS. LET IT GROW ORGANICALLY. BE COOL. ISN’T THE REST OF THE EVERYGUYD NETWORK IN EXISTENCE IN PART TO HELP PICCSY EXIST AS IT DOES? WE DON’T NEED ALL THESE OPTIONS TO CONTROL THE SITE. YOU GUYS ALREADY DO THAT. NOT WELL, BUT VERY WELL.

    STAY TRUE.

    BOTTOM LINE: HOW DO YOU MAKE PICCSY BETTER? A BETTER SERVER.

    1. Hide already picced images
    2. iPhone app
    3. download all images options
    4. customize personal page/backgrounds

    Don’t loose your exclusivity and original concepts ! Piccsy is better than tumblr and Twitter , so don’t become like them .

    Video and Gifs are going to give that “cheap look” , piccsy is better without them.

    iPhone app may be nice for some people , but i’m afraid some users are going to post low quality things…

    Sorry for my english :)

      Terrific insight, your ideas are being passed along to our developers! We’re implementing most of these things and working on a great mobile app. The geotagging is on the horizon, but definitely something we have on the agenda.
