Please implement a draft/exit confimation for "Create a new topic"
Ughh I just typed a whole long post preparing to be sent and I clicked esc or something accidentally and then without a prompt the type box disappeared. PLEASE at least make a confirmation dialog (like... not the js one, but an actual "leaving the page" system dialog/warning box) here, or just implement a simple draft/cache thingy... It's so frustrating when it happens. :C Oh and Also, why not make the entire page the file drop area? Every site I've seen uses a very small file drop area, I don't think you need to make it look "nice on the UI". The larger the drop area the more convenient it can be used.

Two problems
Hey guys. In this post I want to talk about two things: -A confusing icon -Clicking "Mark as Complete" by mistake Confusing Icon ---------------------- Please refer to the attached image. See those two light gray icons? See how one goes with the view count and the other is a checkbox for "Mark as completed"? Because the icon next to the view count is similar in shape and value to the icon for checking "Mark as Completed", I instinctively thought it was clickable and experienced a bit of discomfort when I clicked it and nothing happened. It took my mind out of automatic mode and I had to think about the interface as opposed to what I was trying to accomplish from it. A small thing, but I point it out because when I read Steve Krug's book "Don't Make Me Think" he taught me that's the #1 rule of UI design. "Designing With the Mind in Mind" talked about it as well when they were explaining the limits of human working memory and why a UI needs to occupy as little of that as possible so the person can focus on their goal. That's why I notice this stuff :) Of course I know that there will never be a perfect UI and that time/budget constraints are always a factor, but this seems like something you could change cheap and easy. You probably could just make a new image file and save it over the top of the old one. :) I'm thinking you'd want to go with black since red would communicate "I stand out because I'm important" and grey is the color it is now. Or if it's really important for it to stay gray for some reason, then make the silhouette drastically different from the checkbox. At the end of the day it's your call if this is even worth fixing but just doing my duty here and making suggestions :) Clicking "Mark as Complete" by mistake ------------------------------------------------------ Now this problem is more critical. I checked "Marked as Complete" on a video just to see what would happen and I felt a sense of dread when I discovered I could not uncheck it! Please turn this into a toggle. :) I point this out not only for the obvious reason that I want to be able to uncheck stuff but also because I'm thinking about the concept of a UI making its users feel free to explore as opposed to them being afraid of making mistakes. Being low risk, basically. Well, being able to undo your mistakes plays into this :)

Help Ukraine Purchase question
I recently bought a model pack from the help Ukraine promotion. However, I can’t access the photos. It doesn’t even show up in the tool section of my classroom. Going into the normal store it doesn’t show it as being purchased and looking at the my orders I get the following message I am attaching. Has the purchase just not gone through yet or was there some sort of bug with the purchase?

Course Suggestion - Environments
It would be awesome to have a course on backgrounds, environments, and layouts. Everyone wants to be a character artist but I’m really more interested in environments!

Suggestion - watch later but for courses
I think it would be useful if there was something like the watch later playlist on youtube but for courses. It’d be nice to be able to save courses I’m interested in but not able to take at the moment so I can find them later.

Russian Ballet fotos twice in ZIP
Byjan
Hi, if you download an unpack the 2,3GB Russian Ballet.zip, then you get all the fotos + another Zip-File which contains all the images again. .. so not a big deal, but a waste of space and download-capacity, as all images only use about 1GB not 2. best regards, jan

Portrait Reference-Fotos
Byjan
Hi, you could 'recycle' your figure-drawing images by simply cropping to the head/shoulder region only and providing us with a nice portrait-reference-collection for drawing! .. again, please also create PDFs for EBook-Readers so we can draw outside in the sun and while waiting on the bus ;) thanks and best regards! Jan PS: a complete new foto-session with extra emotional facial expressions would be very nice too of course!

E-Book friendly Figure-Drawing Collections
Byjan
Hi, you could (should) create PDF-Files with say 100 Fotos each in a single PDF (small-resolution version!) for EBook-Readers. I always create this format myself to get the pictures on my ebook (it remembers the last page/image and is perfect for sunny days outside), but maybe others struggle with such 'technic' tasks .. e.g. i have chanon-0-99.pdf, veronica-100-199.pdf, etc. best regards, Jan

Suggestion: addition of Discord server
I personally have found the Discord community platform to be most functional for this application. Real time voice/video/sharing. REAL TIME! Voice! Video! Sharing! Great for the community in general but many uses become apparent such as classes and workshops... all under one platform!(PS Art-wod has successfully implemented its usage.) Thanks.

The Roadmap & Community section
Just wondering what thoughts are on what’s coming from the roadmap and where the community sees priority needs? I think a lot of people have dropped off the community section (?) but I’d like to see them back and see see it really thrive and grow here (aside the courses and challenges which are already great). My thoughts on what is missing at the moment: - to be notified when someone you follow posts work to their album, possibly by also setting up dedicated published vs WIP albums - Commenting on albums/personal walls - Sketchbooks/journals, for members to track their progress through the courses, general art progress and thoughts, again with notifications - a dedicated critique section (like the ‘ask for help’ checkbox but it’s allowed in community/personal wall posts) - News - particularly Proko site/course news, but also somewhere for members to post Art related news/content for discussion, like a bulletin board - Personal messages and/or group chat - Maybe a few sub-categories in the Community section, though I’m not sure how deep or wide to go depending on how active it is. Could even add tags or something to allow searching/pseudo-categorisation. Keep up the great work, the content here is fantastic and I look forward to the future developments and growth.

Displaying Reference Photos on Streams
If I purchase one of the photo reference packs, am I allowed to show it on my streams (youtube or twitch) for drawing/sculpting? Sorry if this was answered somewhere, couldn't find it.

Why can't you delete posts in a topic you created if it has comments?
Title pretty much says it all, just wondering what the reason for it is.

Suggesting an art teacher to Proko
Hi Proko team, I just stumble across this amazing oil painting artist from New Zealand. His name is Andrew Tischler. Please check him out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg4eQuX8UoZkpZNno-eyYoQ I thought it could be really cool to have him on the Proko board. Also, I like having all my favorite artists/Teachers in one place to pig from. Best regards Lasse

White screen when trying to play video on iPad
When I open up the Cylinders lesson (or any other lesson) for the designing dragons course all that appears is a white screen. I’ve tried using safari and Google chrome, but neither of them work. note: I am using an iPad, that may be part of the problem. Thanks, Burningbryce

Video not showing up at all
Hiya - I just bought Figure Drawing Fundamentals. Before I bought it, I was able to see the free lesson video thumbnails and click through onto YouTube. However, since I bought the premium course, the thumbnail area is blank with no way to see the videos. I've tried re-logging in, restarting my computer, disabling my adblock, and updating my web browser. Nothing has worked so far. Whether I click onto the lessons from "My Classroom" or from the "Browse Courses" page, I can't access the videos. Attached is a screenshot. Any ideas?

Creating your own art school...
I am aware Stan and Marshall both feel they have worked this topic to death. I disagree. People continue to struggle with this despite an enormous amount of material available. Something I neglect to see discussed in those videos pertaining to self-education and something I desire and something I hear echoed among many: Structured assignment. I guess without expanding an additional category to your concept it would best fit under 'Feedback'. It is difficult for the first time artist or beginner to come up with good practical ideas of just what to draw and how to approach said project (the focus or mindset. ie modelling, color, composition.. etc.) to get the most out of the experience at a particular stage in their progression. You may say draw anything, draw everything. But that is no good for the beginner. He wants to be told what to do and how to go about it to gain the best results. Keeping in mind the buckets of gemstones from your interview with Flint Dille (mostly the idea of being challenged without becoming overwhelmed) Also keep in mind the art student isn't just learning to draw. He is learning to be creative. I should reword that... He is learning to 'access' his creativity. https://youtu.be/5xkn7VWdKZ8?t=4937 - James Gurney’s Self-Education Journey - Draftsmen S3E04 (~1:23:00) James Gurney sums it up beautifully. "What a good teacher should probably do.. is come up with a real specific challenge that they are likely to succeed at, but that brings them to a higher level of understanding and then take everything out of the equation that might confuse them too much..." This is something missing from self-education that I see being of great benefit in propelling growth that is available at the art school. This note is designed for Stan and the Proko team but any feedback (esp. where one might find these sorts of lesson assignments) is appreciated. I hope my words make sense of my desire. I know I'm not alone in this.

Are subscriptions a thing?
I wasn't sure where else to ask this or post this, but I was interested in knowing whether Proko offers some kind of annual subscription that gives you access to everything. I saw a post of people talking about it on a forum somewhere, which is what made me interested, but I am not seeing an option for that anywhere. Am I missing something, or was that a previous option that no longer exists? Thanks in advance!
