As of now, the app is still not ready for production but the main code for user management (integration with the Steemit blockchain) is in place and has been tested for a few weeks. I will refer again to the and remind you what to expect until September 10th:
We will open the gates to at least 200 more alpha testers and we will extensively test:
- community creation, evolution and rewards
- UI features
- posting with extensive features (WYSIWYG editor with drag and drop images)
The focus will be on user interface and we will try to collect as much feedback as possible. The visuals will still be accessible only to the alpha testers.
Once you join the slack, the first think you should do is to join the '#alpha' channel, that's where all the fun will be, for the next few months.
For those of you unaware, steem.city is a project aiming to bring a community layer on top of the current Steemit experience, based on the arbitrary split of rewards feature introduced in HF 17/18.
