Hey guys! I've been thinking lately about what to build next for Pokécharms, and so I wanted to get feedback from the community about what you guys would want most. I've got some ideas that I'd like to put forward, but what I build isn't limited to this list – if you've got an idea you'd like to see on Pokécharms, let us know!

Allows you to set whether you’re available for requests, art trades, or commissions, and shows your ststus in a large block on your works and profile.
Later on, we could expand this to letting you manage your requests through ‘Charms directly, allowing you to manage a request queue. We could also add a dedicated tab on your profile for more information about your requests, such as commission prices and the types of requests you take.
Creative Corner: Advanced Filtering
Expands the browsing options on the Creative Corner, and allows you to filter and sort the Creative Corner listings more freely. For example, you could choose to view written works from your followed users, posted in the last week, and sorted by the under of comments.. Or you could view the most liked works in a particular tag. We’d also add this functionality to a user’s profile.
Creative Corner: Analytics
Adds an area that allows you to view statistics about your works on the Creative Corner, like what your most liked works are, what works got the most comments, what tags get the most attention, and so on. The idea is to give you more information as to how your works are doing and what works best.
Creative Corner: Comment Replies
Allows you to reply directly to a comment, so that it appears directly underneath it, and you can view the entire conversation in order. This would save you from tagging a user individually to let you know you’re talking to them.
The profiles are pretty limited right now, and useful information (like a user’s works, or their About Me section) is hidden behind tabs. This would redesign the profiles to show that information more clearly, and also add more ways to customise your profile – maybe even choosing one of your Creative Corner works as a cover image.
Trainer Cards: Gallery
Showcase the best and newest Trainer Cards on the site, so you can show off your cards, get inspiration for new ones, and discover and Like other Trainers’ cards.
Trainer Cards: Pokémon Genders
Allow you to set a gender for each of the Pokémon on your trainer card, with a small symbol in the Pokémon’s panel.
Trainer Cards: Editing
Allows you to bring a saved trainer card back into the TCM to make changes, without having to recreate the card from scratch.
Adds new buttons in the forums, Creative Corner, and comments to allow you to quickly and easily post Pokémon sprites – just click the button, choose the Pokémon you want, and it'll appear in your post.
