🐰 🥚 Hello, Similar Worlds! 🐤 🐇

The SW Team is pleased to provide you with an update of what has been implemented since our last announcement last week.

[sep]

[big]• Message Introduction 💌[/big]
[b][c=#BF6900]and Privacy Improvements[/c][/b]

We have released a great new feature: Message Introduction.

Your Message Introduction appears to users in the moment they are about to compose their first message to you.

With this, you can let users know what type of private conversations you are interested in having or what you are not, what they can expect when contacting you, or anything else on your mind.

• [b]Privacy Improvements[/b]

You can now make messages from [b]Users who you have Muted[/b] be sent to your [u]Messages Requests[/u], unless you already have a conversation with them in your Inbox.

This is a new option in your "Filter Messages" settings (accessible through your Messages page).
☑ Users who I have Muted


In addition, if you want to move a conversation from your [u]Inbox[/u] to your [u]Messages Requests[/u], there is now a new button [b]Ignore Messages[/b] that does that:

Contrariwise, you can also move messages from your [u]Messages Requests[/u] to your [u]Inbox[/u]:

[big]• Remove Followers 🔒[/big]

You can now remove Followers.

Removing a user from Followers will also [u]restrict the user[/u] from following you again.

If you want to allow that user from following you in the future, you can remove the block very easily, so that they can follow you again:

• [b]A few other Improvements to Friends lists[/b]

- We now show the user names instead of "SW User", if the user has canceled their profile and they are still on your Friends list (only you can see the real name).

- You can now see the time at which someone Followed you, or when you Followed someone, in your Friends/Followers lists.


[big]• New Image Max-Size 🏖🏝🌄[/big]

We have increased our maximum image/photo size from 650x600 to [b]720x720[/b].

This allows our users to upload bigger photos to Similar Worlds, improving the quality of the images shown on posts and messages.

[big]• Other Relevant Improvements 🛠 [/big]

• We are now line-breaking big links on posts, to make them easier to select and copy.

• Loads of improvements to the popup position and size, especially when the keyboard opens.
(a good example is the Insert Image popup, which we found a bit dificult to use on Mobiles)

• We don't allow posting nested replies on a Comment from someone that is blocked, anymore.

• The "Show Less" (of a user) action can now be found through the Profile button: "Mute/Block/Report".

• Multiple improvements to Scrolling and Navigation on SW.


💡 [b][c=#BF0000]If you find any weird behavior in our system, please let us know straight away by sending any of the admins a Private Message or an email to us.
This is the best way to reach us and ensure that we will look into the problem as soon as possible.[/c][/b]

Thank you for your support and we hope you continue to stay with us.

We are constantly listening to your suggestions, so please keep giving them to us, as they are very important to the future of Similar Worlds.

Very kind regards,
- The SW Team

Keep up the good work

Sweet!


Can we please get a worst answer option next? PLEEEEAAAAAAASE
MethDozer · 36-40, M
[@328496,bijouxbroussard] Not to say it wouldn't come in handy by some in rare cases, the point is it us mostly abused and 90% of the time is just to create an echo chamber or a false dialogue. If the worst answer is a bad idea because it cod be abused, then op editing is way worse in that regard.
[@521796,Spanky] I don’t generally remove content unless I consider it abusive. And since I try not to be abusive if someone removes my content (and they have) simply because it disagreed with their POV, I don’t interact with them in future. There are plenty of other posters.
It is a fact that some people [b]don’t[/b] want an actual dialogue, no matter how civil.

[@328496,bijouxbroussard] Oh I know you don't BB. I'm going after you or faulting anyone for using it properly.
Thank you :)
