dMania v0.8: Feed Page - Emojis in Comments - New NSFW Feature and more

in #steem3 years ago (edited)


It has been a while since the last version update of dMania. There were some other issues with the reward distribution, the bot and a mining script attack that had to be resolved. I have continuously released smaller updates and fixes the last few weeks and months. Now I have a bigger update ready and I hope you like the new features.

Feed Page

There is now a feed page that shows all posts from dManiacs you are following. This was a feature requested by many users. Users should be aware that when you follow someone on dMania, you will follow them on Steem and you will see all posts on your Steemit feed too. Some users don't want that. I have waited to add a feed page because of that issue. I thought Steemit will fix that soon or at least when Communities are here that issue will be resolved. Unfortunately Steemit hasn't provided a fix for that so far.

dMania is a separate app on Steem and can't always consider the visibility on other apps on Steem, even when it's Steemit. I still think it is a great feature and will improve the overall curation on dMania.


On the profile page there is a new button to follow or unfollow users.


Updated NSFW Feature

dMania already had a feature to mark posts as NSFW(Not safe for work). The old version only allowed to show or disable NSFW posts in the settings. NSFW posts were disabled by default and were less visible because of that.
The new version shows a warning for NSFW posts by default. Users can change the visibility of NSFW posts to show warning, always show or always hide.

I want to clarify that dMania is not a place to post porn. Post your porn somewhere else. It should stay below FSK 18. Some sexy posts are ok, but dMania is a place about funny and interesting stuff.
I encourage all users to flag porn.  If a NFSW post was not tagged as NSFW, it should be flagged too.


Emojis for Comments

This is a feature that is clearly missing on Steemit and I always have to use some external page to find and include emojis . On dMania it is now possible to select emojis for comments. At the moment there is a small selection of some commonly used emojis.

The image icon in the comment box links to https://memeful.com/. On Memeful you can select memes or GIFs to respond to posts. The best way to respond to a meme is with another meme. On Memeful there is a great selection of memes and GIFs. Just click on the picture you like and it will copy the link.

There are not a lot of comments on dMania at the moment and I hope those changes will encourage users to post more comments.


Updated Supporters Page

I have updated the supporters page and improved the usability. It is now possible to search for supporters.

The new delegation dialog shows the available Steem Power for an account. The available Steem Power has a safety check, so you don't delegate everything. That has happened to some new users and they couldn't operate on Steem anymore. The check makes sure you have at least 10 SP left.


dMania shows your active contribution with a button to update or remove it.


Disable Audio for Videos

dMania already checks if their was an audio stream included in the video. It will hide the mute/unmute button if no audio stream was found.
That automatic check doesn't always work and sometimes users don't want to enable audio for a video. It is now possible to disable the audio for videos. That will basically turn a video into a GIF.


Better Performance

I have improved the performance on dMania and most things load a lot faster now.

  • Navigating to the post detail page happens instantly and only the comments are loaded afterwards.
  • dMania now uses the user image service from Steemit. Posts load faster because the user images don't have to be fetched separately and are only fetched on demand .
  • The settings of the logged in user are now stored and loaded from local storage as well. That fixes the problem that sometimes loading the data for the logged in user takes some time.

Support dMania


dMania supporters receive 15% of the rewards on dMania and control the upvotes of the dMania bot. The dMania bot uses the collected Steem Power from supporters to upvote posts on dMania. To become a dMania supporter, you have to delegate some Steem Power to dMania. The minimum is only 5 Steem Power. The more Steem Power you delegate, the higher your rewards and the more power you have on dMania. By delegating Steem Power, you are lending your Steem Power to dMania. The Steem Power still belongs to you.

We hope to take that whole NSFW problem off your hands soon. For the record, @dporn will take your porn. We just do videos right now, w/ pictures very soon.

Oh nice finally someone creates dPorn 😁
At the beginning I wasn't sure if I should create dMania or dPorn. I chose dMania. I am glad someone creates dPorn. Was about time 😄

Oh nice finally someone creates dPorn

Yes, someone who creates dPorn.

dMania is great platform and I'm sure it crossed your mind to go down that road. Two great places dMania and dPorn. 😄

The feed section is very nice. Thanks for what you did @zombee

Wow those are some awesome updates @zombee and thanks for the mention ! your doing a great job , keep up the great work ! upped and resteemed , Happy Easter !🐇🐰👍😂

Love the emoji addition, it will definitely improve interaction.
Btw why does the dmania account have 0 reputation :)) ?

Yeah the crazy guy flagged all bot comments. I am trying to get the reputation back up again. Not sure if I can.

lol "the crazy guy".
Yeah man that was inevitable and you were a little too careless.
I support your project but warned you that the place had become a shitposters paradise. You simply said "we are aware of it" and didn't really do anything to stamp out the garbage.

The script thing obviously put you on the outer with many who have some weight around here so you can't blame only "the crazy guy". Your management skills is what led to the current state. I think you are not completely out though and rebuilding is not very difficult.

You should aim to have a regular 'shitpost dump' area and a somewhat 'original/dank area'.
To achieve this you simply need to let the shitposters continue but their rewards must be capped at a few dollars. Simply to keep them fed and returning... as you have them as possible 'converts' from shitposters to dank meme makers once they start to see where the real rewards are dished out.

Running weekly competitions is all you need to do. Memes with a theme. For example first week could be: steemit related memes only. This will force users to get creative and apply a certain message/image to their memes. As, this is the real issue with memes. Sure some are funny but if they have no relevance then people don't have a need for re-usability. So a meme will live.. shine. ONCE... and then be gone. That's not a good system. It's what then fits the label "shitposts". It is also then the reason why your own platform is calling upon memes from "memeful"... (wtf!?).

You should be utilizing your own memes.. I even envisioned such a thing becoming a reality and one which would boost your existence... way back when you had a zombee/dmania post in 'promoted'. I was only days old here then actually so yes... I visited the promoted section. You need to realize what you believed in back then. You wanted dmania to be a contender to 9gag. It's a good goal to have but you let the shitposters take over. 9gag is also full of shitposts.. they have their purpose... but the memes that become DANK and then go on to become a part of internet culture have always a powerful message or something that relates heavily with human/internet/emotion/comedy etc..

This is what I believe a weekly criteria would achieve... and in time.. (will take time) you will have built a wealth of re-playable memes that the wider community of steemit will begin to utilize and then possibly.. the wider internet.. if they obviously meet the standards. This is all very achievable. But if you let it continue as just a dump for whatever, where any useless maggot can create or even find crap elsewhere and dump it on your platform... then how do you seriously expect to reach a status of 'dank' ? It's not likely. You need to direct the outcome.

Wow those are some awesome updates! thanks for sharing.

Waoo what a great sophisticated interface and development. thanks @zombee for the asynchronous work for dmania and Steemians.
you are appreciated

Thanks imformations @dmania and
Thanks for what you did @zombee IMG_20180323_152517.png

Great. these features are very good

By most definition of "work", dmania as a whole would be considered NSFW.

Lol , NSFW will change alot in dmania..
Work = Force × length...
😁😁😁

@zombee , theres a guy named kook thats totally stealing memes from the internet and posting them on dmania my son just told me about it .This guy is a well known scammer on Steemit ! now hes moved to dmania !
Heres the message I just sent to @lifeaef :
info : Theres a guy named kook that All his posts are stolen memes and hes stealing from the rewards pool like crazy as every one of his memes is also being upvoted by 3 alt accounts named - trevonjb / lordgod / deepdog . All of these stolen memes are being upvoted to around $50.00 ! this is going to shut down dmania please check into it and maybe advise @zombee about it thanks !!👍

That's true, most of his memes are gotten directly from the web without editing. I hope @zombee do something about it ASAP.

Yes thanks for your great comment . its really a shame ! he puts zero effort into posting them as well ! he will write "lol" or put a prayer emoji , its total bullshit !! my son @gavinthegreat advised me about it when I woke up , so I decided to let @zombee and @lifeaef know about it as soon as possible !

+1 great update!
