1) Painting preview & info
Shows currently selected painting on the left, and it's info on the right. Info includes painting name, author's nickname and size in blocks.
2) Offer count
Shows amount of painting in current feed and current position.
3) Previous & next buttons
Press those buttons to switch the current offer. Up for previous offer and down for next.
4) Account
Shows current authentication state. When using anonymously, Log In button will appear. Pressing it will show prompt to authenticate on this site. If you logged in successfully, your nickname will be shown instead. If you do not see this button, it is likely that chat links are disabled in Minecraft, or the server you are playing on is banned.
5) Offer price
Shows how many emeralds you should place in sale slot to get a painting. In sale mode, show how much you will get: popular artists are getting more emeralds.
6) Sale slot
Place your emeralds here. Now. Jokes aside, you can also place your painting here if you are logged in, to submit your painting to this website.
7) Result slot
When the offer is fulfilled (you have enough emeralds or your painting is validated), get your result from that slot. It could be painting or emeralds here.
8) Update countdown
Because offers are updated every 5 minutes, you have limited time to purchase the painting in offer. Do not worry, when time will run out, this button will turn black, and you will have 1:30 to finish what you planned. You can also manually update offers by clicking this button when it's black.
9) Feed icon
This just shows which algorithm was used to bring this painting to you. For example, this can be a star if this painting is available only to you, as you added it to your favorite paintings on this website.
