Community Update - August 2020

staff -

The bees are imminent

In July, we...

  • Got more server hardware

  • Finished the image transcode system

  • Started the new text editor

  • Published our public roadmap

Site Stats

As of writing, we have 31,804 users, 51,610 blogs, and 396,653 posts.

Site News

There's a lot this month. We'll start with some Commission Market news - we finally got approved by PayPal, so it'll be an option going forward once the rewrite hits. We are considering removing Stripe entirely - users have reported some bad experiences that are shaking our faith in them, as well as being too complicated to use, so some feedback here would be great. Additionally, we've had a couple reports of them trying to make you use unexpected transaction methods - if you try and buy a blog slot or pay for a commission and get redirected to Apple or Google Pay, do not proceed with the transaction - hop in the Discord and let us know so we can figure it out.

To answer a concern that was brought up last month - using PayPal will not change the NSFW policy of the site. Business and partners have different rules from individuals, and Waterfall's existing content policy puts is well within the safe zone by all the interpretations and second opinions we got. If PayPal elects to go back on that, we'll simply look for another option or roll our own.

I needed a break this month because there's only one of me and mental fatigue is a little bitch, so I switched focus some to work on Springwater's blog analytics dashboard.

This is still a prototype (you can tell by the labelling) but even with the test data, I can already tell people will find this very useful, especially artists. I'll do a writeup next month about what's included, since at the minute I'm still surprising myself with what breakdowns I'm able to do with it.

I'm considering doing a mockup of the dashboard to see how it'd look with the stylesheet used there - certainly it'd look a bit more modern. You guys let me know what you think before I start?

Next up, I finally started work on a custom text editor. It's SO much better. Looks better, behaves better, and, since I accidentally backspaced when I finished writing this post and had to start over, it'll also save state so if your browser crashes or you acidentally leave you don't lose everything. I don't have screenshots of it since it's still effectively a glorified text box, but I do have screenshots of the new audio player.

There's still a few kinks to work out, mostly related to mobile, and I'm not sure whether we'll keep the visualisation there or not, but it works and I'm pleased. Album art support! It'll auto-populate with whatever ID3 tags the file has and then you can edit the picture, track name, artist etc. It'll also eventually have playlist support for musicians to use in art posts.

Final piece of UI news - we'll be adding a bunch of accessibility options. There'll be stuff like a colour blind mode, dyslexia mode, font size options etc. We'll run these by members of the community before launch to make sure we're covering the largest cross-section of users possible. They'll all be off by default, but users can pick and choose which ones they find useful and turn them on.

Oh, and something about how we've started working on chats too, but nobody cares about that.

Back on the backend, the main roadblock now is making posts.

Legacy code sucks.

In theory I could port it wholesale, but there's a few improvements I want to make in a couple of places, as well as fixing mentions code and whatever is happening with queue time calculations. Purely text based posts work, but file based posts need some more work, as well as link posts, because I'm just not happy with those at the minute.

That's all for now, so see you next month, and give the roadmap a look!

sorry for being silent. its been... a difficult week

and will probably continue being difficult for a while longer

we went to the police and theyve done nothing, so we decided to take action

my older sister and younger sister have been abused and raped by my older sisters husband for years, so mom and me and my little sister talked to my older sister and publicly accused him a few days ago

my older sister, lets call her r, has been devistated but immediately believed my younger sister, lets call her n. i wont go into any of the sordid details but ive been helping r sort out moving, her job, and figuring out her divorce, and n is going to therapy. r plans to go to therapy too but wants to testify as a part of n's case cause even though theyve ignored n for so long, they cant ignore multiple accusations, especially since im pretty sure theyre not the only two girls hes abused and raped as children and r's already contacted them and is waiting for a response.

those lazy pigs better at least label him as a child sex offender if they dont send him to jail i swear to god. my family is already doing their job for them so they better fucking do something.

I'm not sure if this will be helpful to anyone- but I happen to know a few tricks that can help when you're writing gay fan fiction and experiencing this dilemma~

A lot of the conventions of 'proper' grammar are overlooked these days- and that's fine! However it does mean things can get confusing and people don't always know how to solve issues like this.

When writing, if the subject changes at any point you always use their name/pseudonym for the first time they become the active/possesive character.

For instance:

Joey looked longingly at Kristof, but there was nothing left to say. He gathered his discarded clothing in one hand and his half eaten pastrie in the other.

"I'm sorry it had to be like this Wheeler." Said his lover.

Now in this example, we can assume the clothing, pastrie and lover all belong to Joey, because he has been the active character the entire time. However what if it was Kristof's pastrie?

Joey looked longingly at Kristof, but there was nothing left to say. He gathered his discarded clothing in one hand and Krisof's half eaten pastrie in the other.

"I'm sorry it had to be like this Wheeler." Said Joey's lover.

We use Kristof's name because we are switching who is the possesive character. Then in the next sentance to avoid confusion we use Joey's name again to switch back.

Another good tip:

"Whenever a new character begins speaking, start a new paragraph." Moaned Joey.

"What, you mean like this?" Kristoff smirked. "You like it when I start a new line to establish who is talking?"

"MMMN!" Cried Joey, unable to hide the way Kristoff's grasp of grammatical conventions was affecting him. He had no idea the blonde man had recieved such detailed literary instruction. Joey couldn't help himself. "And if I were to speak here, you'd know it was still me speaking."

"That's right you city-boy slut." Kristoff didn't even need to specify that it was him speaking because he'd already started a new paragraph, but he did so anyway just to prove his point.

I know a lot of people don't see the value in grammar and it isn't always useful - but when writing long form scripts like in fan fiction, it can really help to establish the sequence of events taking place.
