It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.Dismiss Notice

Do not edit the title of your thread after it is finished. Please only change the prefix to Finished. Your sales thread will be moved to the Sold Dolls Archive for reference and will still be visible to your buyer and to other members for a minimum of six months. Altering the content of your sales thread after a sale has been made may result in disciplinary action.
If you have not yet met these requirements, you may not solicit or engage in any transactions anywhere on the forum.

Changing a preference is not retroactive. If you are already watching a thread or doll profile, you may still get alerts for it after you have updated your preference. If this happens, you will need to go back to the item and click 'unwatch' to prevent future alerts.
Being Paged is for members who have an unanswered Paging thread in Problem Transactions. This doesn't always indicate a problem, but do check the member's feedback before entering a transaction.
Unresolved Transactions means that someone is in the midst of resolving negative transactions. They cannot use Invisible Mode or edit their personal settings, and they cannot block conversations. They can access the Marketplace but cannot start new threads there.

To mark one forum read, visit that forum and go to Forums » Mark Forums Read.
This time, a window will pop up with an option to mark that forum as read:
Make your selection and click the Mark Forums Read button.
Clicking the Styler button will bring up more options, including more background colours and patterns.
You can also lock a conversation so that no one else can post in it. You may want to do this if you are sending a message to multiple people, but don't want to start a big group conversation. For example, you might contact members of a group order for their addresses, but you want each person to respond to you privately.
One notable difference is that the conversation search box only allows you to search for usernames, not keywords.
Choose any thread, scroll down to the bottom and click the Styler button. There are options for typeface, text size, text background and text colour. Click the green tick symbol to save your choices.
Note these choices will only change the text in posts and conversations, so you need to be on a page that displays them in order to see any difference.
'Subscriptions' are now called 'watched threads' and 'watched forums', and links to these are under the Forums tab in the main navigation bar. There is no longer a page that displays all subscriptions or watched content.
You can invite more people into conversations you have started, or in those where the conversation starter has ticked the box to allow it.
If you are starting a conversation and do not want the recipient(s) to invite others in, do not tick this option.
