Development Update #23
*Media highlight by artist Noahgraphicz
Hello Slusheans, it’s Alice. You’ve probably already noticed that Slushe’s Homepage received a small layout change (which we hope you’re enjoying!) Today I’ll talk about that and a few more updates that we did on the site in February.
GENERAL SITE UPDATES UP UNTIL 22 FEBRUARY 2022
NEW HOVER EFFECT FOR THUMBNAIL IMAGES IN GALLERIES
We have updated the hover effect that you see when you move your cursor over a thumbnail image on the Homepage or on pages where you can use Gallery View. We decided to replace the old pink overlay with a dark, transparent overlay because it allows you to see more of the image when you hover over it. We’ve also included a thumbnail image of the artist’s avatar.
ABILITY TO DISABLE COMMENTS
Artists are now able to disable comments on their posts.
- When you create a new post, you’ll see a new “Disable comments on my post” checkbox.
- If you wish to disable comments for an existing post, click Edit and scroll down until you see a checkbox “Disable comments on my post.” Tick the box and click Save.
IMPORTANT FOR ARTISTS: when you disable comments on your post, no one (including you as the artist) will be able to comment on the post. Existing comments will become invisible. Notifications of likes and favorites will also be invisible. (You will still receive these notifications in https://slushe.com/notifications and/or via email if you’ve enabled these settings in https://slushe.com/edit-profile/notifications. You will also still see the Likes and Favorites counter in your post stats.)
If you wish to stop a specific user from commenting on your post, please go to their profile and block them. Users on your Blocked List cannot comment on your posts.
DISCONTINUED ‘SELECT FILTER’
We have removed the Select Filter drop-down menu from the Post Media editor. We decided to remove it because categories and tags are the main tools to filter content on Slushe, and Select Filter wasn’t a meaningful (and kind of confusing) addition on top of our existing filters.
REPLACED FORUM WITH DISCORD IN MAIN MENU
We’re no longer linking to the Slushe forum in the main menu because we intend to move all user discussions to our Slushe Discord. The forum is still enabled for now, but we urge you to refrain from starting any new discussions there because the forum will be discontinued with the next update. Please use the Discord channels instead.
GENERAL SITE FIXES
- Fixed a bug that caused users who disabled notifications for Lists to still receive those notifications.
- Fixed a bug that allowed people who blocked each other to still be able to message each other.
- Fixed a bug that made the same comment appear multiple times on a post if a user repeatedly clicked the Send button.
- Multi-image counter icon now also shows on List posts in Blog View.
Today’s otherworldly vision of beauty Mina was created by artist Noahgraphicz. If you liked this artwork by Noahgraphicz and you enjoy pin-up style renders and the occasional Overwatch fanart (fishnet fans look over here!) - be sure to check out Noah’s profile for more!
