Hold onto your butts SparkVillagers cuz we’ve got a lot to talk about! The last two months have been a whirlwind, but we’re finally ready to update you on all the new goodies that have come to the site.
For starters, we launched SparkVillage v3.1a! What’s that? So glad you asked. We cleaned up the overall interface of the site and added some new features such as:
User search function
Upgraded user profiles
Infinite scrolling as you browse content
New landing page
If that wasn’t enough, we also began implementing the Bravo Tip or Pay system into SparkVillage, allowing your fans to tip you directly on the site! It’s kind of a big deal.
The biggest event in March was undoubtedly the “Big Stunt”. The dudes of Jared & The Mill made a pitstop on their tour to play a show in Birmingham, and it was magical. If you missed it, never fear. One fortunate SparkVillager was close enough to get some really footage of the set; https://sparkvillage.com/post/158-jared-the-mill-crawl-live .
April has been a big month for our community! We have seen loads of new content pop up on the site and we now have over 1,000 images and that number continues to climb every day!
You may also notice a new cute little icon at the top of the homepage. As you know, we aim to provide a home for artists of every discipline. To that end, we now have a section of the site dedicated to music! You can now directly upload your audio files to your SparkVillage profile and share your music with us!
Finally, we have just launched a promotion with Bravo where the first 200 SparkVillagers to link their Bravo and SparkVillage accounts will receive a $5 tip from Bravo! Can’t beat free money. Go do it! :)

Dalton here! It’s been another amazing month here in the Village! We hit a number of cool milestones this month, so I thought I would share a couple of them with you.
We now have well over 100 SparkVillagers! (We love each and every one of you btw <3)
We had both a video and an image break 1,000 views! *insert hype gif* ;) but seriously though, that’s incredible news for a site that is less than 2 months old.
All of our featured posts across all of our social media platforms reached more than 40,000 people! That’s loads of free advertising for those of you who were featured. So keep posting your awesome things so we can get your awesome things in front of more awesome people.
To wrap things up… we just want to extend a huge thank you to all of you for posting, sharing, and simply being a part of this wonderful community! We hope you’re as excited as we are, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store as we continue to grow.
Well SparkVillagers we are off to a great start with SparkVillage v3.0. We are so excited to see so many of you uploading to the site and engaging in the community! We’re coming to the end of our first month and we’ve had over 200 pieces of content posted! Keep it up! Here are a few notes regarding the site that we want you to be aware of.
We have just uploaded a tutorial that will walk you through the uploading and featuring process. We understand that the Spark system is quite different from what you may be used to, so we wanted to provide you with a short video explaining how it works. I have provided a link below.
Use your Sparks! Featuring your posts is a sure-fire way to get your content in front of more people. Don’t forget that earning sparks is super easy. Simply spend a few minutes each day viewing, favoriting, commenting, and following content on the site and before you know if you’ll have enough sparks to feature your content for hours!
Spread the news! We want to help as many artists as we can, so tell your friends about SparkVillage so they can benefit from the platform too.
Follow us on social media! Following us on twitter and liking us on Facebook makes it much easier for us to feature your work through those channels! We feature multiple posts a week, and it’s another great way for us to promote your work! Links below!
We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the new year than to unveil the newest version of the site! We hope you will find that the site is now much cleaner, user friendly, and easier to navigate. We have also added a number of new features that will enhance your experience your experience and benefit our community as a whole!
User Friendly Layout
Easily browse content, view user profiles, and search the site.
Search for fellow SparkVillagers by typing their name into the search bar or browse users by clicking the “users” tab at the top of the homepage.
New Spark System
Earning Sparks has never been easier. We have decided to expand the earn feature to all areas of the site rather than exclusively the “browse” area. Earn Sparks with almost every click as you browse, rate, comment, and follow.
You will no longer have to rely on links from other platforms to share your images on SparkVillage. You can now upload images directly to SparkVillage and they will be stored on our site. Videos still require links for now, but we are hoping to be a totally independent platform soon.
