A few little things. You may notice something is different when you look at the upcoming events sticky: everything that's an event now has a little calendar icon next to it.

And for another of the updates from today, go look at the "add to cart" button on any product page!

That button is cute!

I notice the little calendar icons on the forums. I feel like the forums are getting a little too busy visually with all of the recent updates. I appreciate the effort to improve but I'm not sure I like them.

I'm not sure what the "add to cart" update is even after looking.

Isn't it? I think it's just adorable, and perfect for Valentine's Day.

I can see where you're coming from with it being visually busy. Personally, I feel like it's right on the border where any more and it will definitely be too much but I kind of like what's going on with it right now.

As for the "add to cart" buttons, they're now festively purple with hearts on them as opposed to the plain green button that was there before.

I'm not really sure what the calendar icons really add to the forum. Events are already on the calendar and the calendar has links to the forums/threads. Oh well, it's not a huge deal.

And the buttons are cute. I thought you were talking about something else with the buttons.

No, just something little with the buttons.

I think the little calendar icons help to differentiate an event at a glance very easily. I mean yes, the calendar has links to all of the forums and the threads, but how many people keep the calendar minimized most of the time? I know I definitely did for a long time, and I think most people do. With the calendar minimized, it can be a lot harder to figure out exactly what's an event and what's not. Well, they could just read the titles of the threads, but it's nice to see "event," "poll," "thread" at just a glance.

Maybe that's my problem. I never minimize the calendar.

Maybe. I started leaving mine maximized because I needed to get to the threads and check stuff on the actual calendar a lot. But I really do think a lot of people keep it minimized. Seeing all the little calendar icons at the top, and then down at the bottom, can be a bit visually overwhelming I agree.

What also confused me is that the Birthday thread is marked with the calendar icon (not really a scheduled event) but the Rumble isn't. Maybe because it's a poll? Eh, I'm just nit-picking. I think I need to interject more happiness:

quick question about the deals. the love coupons don't count towards daily deal things right? tried using it yesterday for the free panties and it said i didn't even have $30 n my cart when I had far more than that.

That's a good point. The Birthday thread is a scheduled event that's supposed to happen the first of every month. The thing that gives events their calendar icon is that it's being created as an event rather than as just a thread. Everything that's on the calendar is assigned a code which is then put into the event thread and creates the Google calendar button. The problem with things like the Roundup and the Birthday thread and the Contributor of the Month threads is that they happen when they happen and the thread doesn't go live until they do, as opposed to say this event which has a thread for about a week before it's live. Another reason that the Rumble doesn't have anything like that is because we can't create an event that is also a poll.

Also, thank you for more happy

Multiple discounts do not stack. So yes, if an item already has a sale price, the cost does not apply towards applying on of the Love discount codes.

I believe it only counts towards things you would be paying on. Like wrmbreze says, the panties are free so they don't count towards your total purchase whereas the coupon will only count towards your total purchase, but like Kindred says it won't stack with other deals. If you have more questions, you can always submit a support ticket or call the customer service department. They're pretty good at answering that stuff.
