Christopher Walken Abstract lesson
I was just watching the abstract lesson and I see that the notes are for the rough sketch. Looks like the title has to be changed and possibly the lesson notes

Cannot edit albums from the Profile page, only from the My Classroom
I believe it would be logical if you could also edit your albums from your profile :)

If I understand correctly, any photo I upload to my feed, whether that is to ask for help, to make a critiqued drawing for someone else, or just to post something I’ve done it all gets added to one single album. I’d like to be able to separate that from pieces I’m just sharing that are things I’ve finished or else it all gets lost in a long collection of photos. But I might be understanding this album thing wrong, I’m not the most savvy when it comes to the interwebs. Could there possibly be a way to have an extra “Portfolio Work” album just to showcase artwork? Does anyone else have this thought? Thanks!

No "add album" button when viewing my albums from my profile page
I got really confused wondering why the button wasn't there but when I navigated to my albums through my classroom > albums I was able to get the button. The place on the site where you can view your albums and add a new one, and the place on your profile where you cannot, they look very similar, so it communicated that were the same kind of "thing" in the system and my brain expected the same functionality, hence the confusion. My suggestion is either make these two ways of viewing an album look different or make it so there is an "add album" button with viewing your own albums on your own profile.

Hi I have both a personal website and Artstation and I think it could be cool if there was a separate field for Artstation. Thanks

"Added a new topic"... can't comment
This is partly a test. I'm adding a new topic about... adding a new topic! I notice quite a few people asking for help/ critiques and there is no option to comment on their post. All these posts have something in common: directly below the user's name it says "added a new topic" rather than the name of a specific discussion forum. So I'm both pointing this out and testing to see if the same thing happens on my post, which is after all a new topic.

Bug: sort by popular not working?
In the Challenge thread (https://www.proko.com/community/topics/proko-challenge-my-life-movie-poster-final-submissions-here) if I sort by popular it doesn't seem to work properly, with what seems only the most popular at top and then random listing.

Suggestion: Threads for longer projects
Hi, at the moment it is easy to post a topic and get feedback. I like the possibility to upvote good comments, because the goods comments are right under the topic then. But on the other hand the up- and down-voting destroys the linearity of the replies. I would be interested to open a project which starts with the sketches. Constructive comments lead to improved sketches. Then working out the sketches, replies, improving the rendering, etc. Such a longer project is kind of a dialog and this is not possible at the moment. At the moment it would just make sense to open a new post for every step of the project. But then it is harder to follow the development of the project.

Edit attached images too
Hi, I attached an image to a reply and posted the comment. Then I realized the image was the wrong one. It is able to edit my post, but only the text. I did not find a way to change the wrong image. My suggestion is to make it possible to edit attached images too.

Challenge voting difficulties
The challenge thread is so long I can't even seem to get to the bottom, at some point, the circle spins and spins, but doesn't load any more posts. Could we have some sort of a gallery view for challenge submissions? We could upvote right in the gallery, and we could click the image and it would take us to the post, if we want to read more or leave feedback.

This place needs a sketchbook forum
Maybe there already is one but I am not acquainted with but I dont think it would be a bad idea for this place to have a sketch book forum so individuals can post and it be like a sketch dump for all to view and get inspiration

Can critiquing and "asking for help" be made easier?
Hey, guys! I've been using the beta site for a few months now and it's looking great overall, can't wait for it to be launched! Although, since I've been dealing with critiques so often, one thing I've had some difficulty with is that sometimes I just don't see all the posts marked with "ask for help". Would it be possible to maybe create a special section on the site which would show only the posts made with the "ask for help" checkbox marked so that anyone could easily access? Perhaps there could also be a green icon or badge that the users could check afterwards to indicate if any feedback was given to that post and/or if the user's question was answered - that way, anyone who would access the "help" section could prioritize replying to the unanswered posts. Another thing is that some people seem to be having trouble figuring out how to get help. @Steffen Anzivino recently made some comments on that - he said: --- "I have not yet posted for a critique on prokolab.com, after reading this, it will be on my mind. If you are having to remind people to check that box then maybe the box itself should be a little more of an eye grabber? or placed in front of the "Post" button. I don't know, just pondering. The critique is one of the things i look forward to the most in my courses. I'm glad I read your response, or i may have been posting help request to an open forum for a while! lol, so thanks for the info." --- Maybe this is something you've already been considering? Thanks! \o/

Idea: Calendar - events and course launches
With all the livestreams, AMA's and courses launching here, it's hard to keep track of when things are and what's coming up. It would be great if the site had a global calendar or schedule (unless I've missed an existing one?) so we can track what's coming up or what we've missed to then replay. This could also integrate the roadmap to show site upgrade or feature release dates too... Great to see so much content and so many events already on Proko 2.0, I hope it keeps going like this!

Notifications of Comments Error
Hey hey Proko Team! Just a heads up, whenever I get a notification of a comment added to a discussion I've started or am engaged in it give me an error when I click on it. I have to go find my post to see the comment that's been added.

Worried about new direction
I'm not sure if this has been addressed in a livestream or elsewhere as I haven't had time to watch through everything but I'm worried about the apparent direction Proko seems to be taking. The thing I've always loved is that the content is free and open to everyone but the premium is there for extras and as a bonus. Now it feels as though the bulk of the content is gated off and has to be purchased and the free content, as substantial as it may be, is merely there to herd you towards making a purchase. From what I've seen so far the free lesson is usually a later chapter in the course which not only makes you want to continue but also makes you feel like you're already missing part of the puzzle which feels a bit manipulative. Again, if this has been addressed and the site will continue to operate as before with full free courses on the way and these new courses are the exception then please disregard but as the title says I'm worried.

Art Journal feature
I think it would be great to have an art journal feature. I don't mean this just as a sketchbook, but more structured with some included features: -Provides templated page layouts that include images, notes and goals. - Option to be public or private, with options to make individual pages either - Allows comments per page, and against the overall journal - Provides a 'cover page' with image and title, which also suggests allowing multiple journals (e.g. Sketching, anatomy course, traditional progress). Could even be aligned to courses to track progress through them (add field for lesson no.) - And of course very importantly, allow others to follow individual journals to be notified of updates! One other feature would probably be to have a 'spotlight' feature to show random journals or a dedicated community section where they are browsable and searchable. Feedback and further ideas welcome :)

City Hall 5-21-21
1. watched it today on my phone while in gym. had to use youtube app instead of on the site due to header pushing video down the screen too far (landscape mode) 2. I was able to hear Stan with no problem but the question reader' volume was about 50% of Stan's. Stan did repeat back some of the questions which was good but until the volume problem is fixed Stan needs to repeat all questions. 3. I am sure you have your reasons for doing the questions on your site as comments instead of using YouTube's chat system but I would take a good look at how David Finch does his Monday night draws. he has merideth as the main moderator and question screener. these streams have a very good feel of community which I know you are looking for with v2.0. there are actually plenty of side chats going on in there. in fact that was how I found out about you figure drawing course that I purchased. I had posted a question to Dave of his opinion on what courses I should look into. Meredith didn't pick/see my question but quite a few fellow chatters did and recommended you. 4 Speaking of Dave, take a look at his screen setup, it has a twitch feel to it with camera on him up in corner, chat below, and main camera taking up most of screen. he is able to switch that area to either his desk or to his computer. I'm sure Dave and merideth would answer any questions sorry so long but just had to get this off my chest BTW, love the figure drawing course, well worth the money...cant wait till I'm good enough to move onto the anatomy course

Adding single lessons to favourites
I think adding single lessons (not only the whole courses) to favourites would be a useful option. Sometimes I watch some lessons several times and it would be more convenient to have a kind of bookmarks.

Would be good to have a jobs posting section on the site :)
