in #steemit3 years ago (edited)

Another cool feature - here is what it shows "new users" who have not signed up yet:

Well done, guys. Hopefully, this will address the needs of both sides!

Great work dev team!!

Thanks for listening!!

WooHoo! How exciting!

I'll have to write some racy fiction to test it out.
Thank you for the updates, Tim -- and GREAT JOB TO THE DEVS!
I love Steemit. :D

yeah, it makes me want to try out some stuff as well. Just no double pie holes....

...with creme filling. AMEN to that! LOL

ha ha!!!!!! It's weird that I was one of the ones putting up a fight to get a nsfw tag resolved, since I'm not exactly the most reserved person in the world.....just look at my art! It's like really sexually explicit and grotesque. But I do have my limits and to be honest, I don't enjoy looking at women who subjugate themselves. My complaint mostly was for kids, since they are all over this site...

::nods:: Hey, I don't even like to see myself naked. LOL I'm not fond of the visual content but I will always defend their right to post it as long as it's legal, you know?

That being said, I'm not particularly fond of the idea that kids are on the site. Maybe give them Steemit JR. because it's not just the sexually explicit stuff, it's also language. I personally love flinging the F word around and don't want to filter my content. This now makes me wonder Will I need the NSFW label if I throw in explicit language? Even retail markets need parental consent for kids under 18 to buy certain video games because of content.

Don't get me wrong - I agree that NSFW stuff needs a "safety cover". Right now it's for the porn and X-rated things, and I do label my erotic fiction - BUT where does it stop? What's it's reach? Are we now allowing the younglings and the goody-goodies to determine what should or must be labeled as NSFW? It's kind of a slippery slope if you ask me.

On the flip side - we kind of need it if we ever want to go mainstream and get out of beta.

My thoughts as well. I'm actually all for nsfw content. I just think it is extremely important to give users who don't want to see it (including minors) the ability to hide it.

Awesome summary!. :-) Re-steemed!

Wow, thanks!! :-)

Excellent news! That's a good setup, imo. Very glad for it. Resteemed and upvoted.

Thanks for the update- I was waiting for an official mention since tuck pointed it out earlier. I think you are official enough:)

what about messaging and some other core stuff?

fixing nsfw is great btw

I expect a lot of it is 'coming soon'. Steemit will be releasing their roadmap on or before 1/1/2017, so we should know what all is in the works very soon :)

This is excellent. The community was becoming somewhat divided over this issue. Hopefully now we can find unity and work together towards bettering the platform in other ways.

Thanks for posting this.

Yes, totally divided! There's no better way to divide a diverse community of people than porn!

This is great!
Thank you so much for the info!

Awesome, thanks for the update! So I guess the tags has not been fixed yet.

Also do you know if there is a way to change the email that is tied to each account. Like I don't want the email attached to the account I am using anymore since i have made a new one.

Just tested - it is not fixed yet.

I don't know the answer to the email question. As far as I know, it is not possible. It may be something they add in a future release.

Thanks for the update!

Mmmm that is too bad. The email that is attached to my account I do not really use anymore! Hopefully they do! Thanks again for keeping track of the current news!

I haven't tested to see if the '5 vs 4 tag' issue is fixed yet. I will try it out when I get home tonight.

AWesome thanks, let me know cause I sometimes forget to use only 4 tags :p

Aren't you a witness yet? I think you definitely deserve it.

I'm number 53 :)

So, in the case of really NSFW stuff, like hardcore you know what, does the NSFW tag need to be first for this new system to work? Or just one of the tags need to be NSFW? This needs clarification.

Just one of the tags.

Found out you can #nsfw tag comments too :)

Nice! How exactly is the NSFW system being applied? Does it rely fully on the author tagging correctly? If so, is the accepted etiquette for content that is not properly tagged for it to be flagged by the community?

Yes, for now it relies on users using the #nsfw tag. The community will need to decide on the proper etiquette. I think most of it should be pretty obvious though.

Nice that it's working for comments too! Your hashtag made me have to reveal this reply. I was curious about that since comments don't have the same "tag cloud" as posts.

Haha, cool!

Nice blog but what is Witness Voting ?

  • Every time someone posts, comments, upvotes, transfers, etc. - that all gets processed and recorded in the blockchain. The witnesses are the ones running the servers and software that validate and record all of the transactions.
  • Witnesses are also elected leaders of the community. They have a responsibility to grow the Steem/Steemit community by using their skills/talents (as well as witness funds) in ways that benefit the community.
  • They are the final deciders as to whether or not hard-forks occur. If there are controversial or bad changes being proposed, the witnesses can put a stop to them by refusing to pick up the new version.
  • They also publish the price of Steem, which is used to determine the payout of SBD->Steem conversions, as well as the Steem marketcap - which determines the total amount of rewards available in the reward pool.
  • They also determine how much interest SBD pays, and how much it costs for a site like Steemit.com to register a new account on the blockchain.

Hope that helps! If you have any other questions, let me know.

interesting , thnx timcliff for the details answer
i think i have much to learn about steem and how it works

following u :)

Cool :) Let me know if you have any questions!

good to know , thank you .

Thanks. It's a great question. I will reply when I get home tonight. It is a bit much to type on my cell phone :)

Thanks Tim!!
Your FOUR tags are perfect for this piece of info. ;)

Thank the lord. This was much needed. I'll be resteeming this! Thanks for the news.

Really smart and simple solution. I like it.

I don't totally understand wath mean NSFW?
"no such file whatever" or something like that? ahahah

If you open a few of the posts, I'm sure you will figure it out soon ;)

Brilliant! Good job to the devs, a clean solution to this. Thanks!

Love it. This is exactly what I requsted.

I like it, it reminds me of how the Google and Bing search engines work. Giving us a choice rather than forcing us is awesome.
