UPDATE 2 : Sub-Gallery Tab Type


dd2t4o6-0877c824-ea1a-4b6d-82aa-ef09698f

With the new "Sub-Gallery" Tab type thats been slipped in, I'd like to update that this suggestion has been 100% achieved on site, and I'm so grateful, its perfect and I love it ;u;
Thank you TH Staff! Even if they didn't see this suggestion and planned doing it either way, its much appreciated by many who commented below, and we're grateful <3



UPDATE: The new "Flattened" Folders option lets us achieve the nearly the desired effect!!!


This is an idea I've been thinking about a lot, and I tried to make a table/buttons for my characters in the Folder Descriptions before so that I could display them in sections, but it just isn't effective!
I think this would be AMAZING, especially with the new ability to view many many characters per page!!

The suggestion would be, to allow inserting dividers that are semi-customization, within character folders, and galleries!

Here is an example showing how this would be helpful to writers, or RP'ers who have different characters for different environments, all within the same "world" or story.
And yes yes, I know that you can make sub-folders!! But who is going to rifle through tens of sub folders? No one does, they'll just click "View All" so they can glance through everything more efficiently.
Having large sections of characters in one folder is amazing, especially with viewing so many per page now,
but being able to add dividers would make it PERFECT;

Another Usage would be characters you're looking to rehome! Instead of having many individual folders for, SALE, TRADE, SALE OR TRADE, CS, UNIQUE/One Off Designs,
I've seen even, Tier1, Tier2, Tier3, ect. For how attached someone is, or who they'll allow to adopt...
Thats a lot of folders, and then even have "Pending" folder for things you're waiting payment on;
Instead, have Everything you're rehoming in one folder, with dividers!;

(please note that none of these characters are actually up for trade/sale lol)

The Divider titles would have a character limit, and possibly a short description as well. Maybe even a color key option?


They could be used to offer brief explanations of a family unit,
These could be used to organize different species into sections, and the description could link to that species' information,


Another place I'd like to see dividers would be within galleries!!! This would be amazing for shapeshifters, outfit sections, or even dividing the tiny icons/chibis/full art potentially!

Currently, i'm using custom dividers like these for my sona;

because she has SO much art. I thought about putting her different forms into "tabs" on her profile, but those don't feel right because they are out of the way, and most people don't explore tabs. I like having all her art within one gallery, but having better dividers to seperate her shapeshift forms would be amazing!! :D
These could be used for Shapeshift forms, Art Types, Art sizes, design changes, to mark Outdated art/do not reference, Age, outfits, era, ect...!

I love the folders so very much, but I dream of being able to have each of my "worlds" together, in sections, labeled as to what they do or who they are, for the absolute most visually pleasing viewing for myself and others.

Thank you for looking!!!!

Just discovered this feature - it's awesome!! So nice to not have to rifle through tons of folders like OP said. Seconding the idea of this for image galleries too (aka gallery dividers)!
