dMania v0.6: Better performance and improved user onboarding
I have just uploaded v0.6 of dMania. The new version improves the performance, adds some basic features that were still missing, fixes some UI bugs and improves the onboarding process for new users.
The latest version of dMania uses the new Jussi endpoint. Jussi is a caching layer for the Steem blockchain. All operations on dMania should be a lot faster now.
I also reduced the amount of posts that is initially loaded and the amount that is loaded while scrolling.
User onboarding on Steem isn't easy. Most people have never heard about blockchains. They know Bitcoin, but that's about it.
When you show them a website like Steemit or dMania, they think it must be some sort of scam. They just can't believe that they get paid for their posts. It's just too different from what they are used to.
Wallets, private keys, voting power, Steem Dollar, Steem Power,... There are so many things that new users have to learn. That's why user onboarding is really important for apps on Steem. We have to show new users how things work around here and teach them the basics. I try to hide all the complex Steem stuff on dMania and make it as easy to use as possible.
Delete and edit comments and posts
It is now possible to delete and edit comments and posts. Everything works pretty much like on Steemit. You can only delete posts and comments without any comments or upvotes. You can edit posts and comments for seven days. After that everything is immutable. Just remember when you edit a dMania post on Steemit, it becomes a Steemit post and won't be visible on dMania anymore.
Voting power slider
The new voting power slider shows how much your upvote will be worth. The voting power slider is only visible for users with more than 500 Steem Power. For users with less Steem Power, adjusting the voting power doesn't make much sense.
dMania supporters receive 15% of the rewards on dMania. To become a dMania supporter, you have to delegate some Steem Power to dMania. The minimum is only 5 Steem Power. By delegating Steem Power, you are lending your Steem Power to dMania. The Steem Power still belongs to you.
The dMania bot uses the collected Steem Power to upvote posts on dMania.
There are already over 50 dMania supporters.@freedom
and many more...
