Suggestion - Allow Viewer to View My Artist Page Similar to that of my Uploads Page


The artist page looks great, but it doesn't allow the viewer to see the full title or description of the videos.  Sometimes being able to review the title and description is a better way to track down a video than having to preview a bunch of them.  Sometimes buyers don't know what keywords to input.  How about allow the viewer of my artist page an option to view them similar to my Uploads page with full titles, full description, and some tech info such as size and duration.  The videos could still be previewed just like on the Uploads page.  If there's already a way to do this, please let me know.

    Thank you for your suggestion Larry! We are always striving to make the site better for our artists and appreciate your valuable feedback.

    Presently, there isn't a feature on our site which displays an artists files as a list, with their full titles and descriptions on display. Perhaps this is something we can look into incorporating sometime in the future. 
    Users can view your artist profile here --> https://www.pond5.com/artist/larryj
    Alternatively, if a user types artist:larryj into the search bar, your items will display in the search results.

    I would like to bring your attention to the option to create and publish collections - this is a great way to group and showcase your media! Collections are a convenient way for buyers to browse through different collections of your media, based on genres, themes etc and very easy to create :) 

    Please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team with any questions!

    Thanks for the response, Isabel.  I'm aware of collections, but they really don't do the same thing as allowing the viewer to read the title (or description) to understand what's coming in the video.  Currently, when a viewer places their curser over a video they are only able to read the first two or three words of its title.  If they aren't captivated by the first couple of seconds, they could easily just move on without seeing the best part.  Why do we write descriptions?  Who sees them.  Are they part of the keyword search?  I realize that it's a lot of work to add the suggested changes, but at a minimum, for the time being, at least show the entire title when the curser rolls over the video.  Thanks.

    Buyers will generally open up the item description page, and this is where they will see the Description. We want to highlight how important accurate and descriptive titles and keywords are for driving traffic to your files. These are what will make your files appear in the search results.

    Perhaps including Descriptions for each file may cluter the search results and take away from the visual aspect of the content. However, if a buyer is interested while browsing, they will click in and pull up the item description page, which clearly displays the Description and more information about the video. 

    We appreciate your thoughts and feedback Larry. Please reach out if you have any other questions.

    Isabel, I have to respectfully disagree with your presumption that "Buyers will generally open up the item description page.." to view the video rather than simply watch the preview that's available on the search results page.  After typing in a search and getting dozens, if not hundreds, of video results, I would be more inclided to roll the curser over the ones that capture my eye rather than opening them up one by one just to view it, and I'm inclided to believe that's exactly what buyers do.  Why not poll the Buyers to determine if they want the ability to customize their Results page as I suggested.  I'd be happy to work with Pond5 to that end.
