New: Hide Post from Feed 👁️❌

Hi Similar Worlds 🍺⛲

I'd like to announce some new features released recently 👍

[big]Hide Posts from Feed 👀[/big]

As requested by our users, sometimes there are posts we don't want to keep seeing in the Feed, so we provided you with an option to Hide that Post.

Press on the "[u][b]Report/Flag[/b][/u]" button located at the top-right corner of the post in the feed, and then select the option "[b][u]Hide Post[/u][/b]".








The post will no longer appear on the Feed.

If you are subscribed to the post, however, you may still get notifications.
The post will continue to be accessible through the user's profile.


[big]Share or Bookmark Posts 💾📡[/big]

We now provide two new buttons on the Posts:

[b]1) Share Post[/b]

Share a link to the post in your favorite app. For example, if you want to easily send the link as a message to some friend.

[b]2) Bookmark Post[/b]

Saves a link to the post in a private collection. You can have multiple collections created by you, with your favorite posts you saved for later. Only you have access to these collections.




You can access your Bookmarks here:

[b]Social[/b] menu -> [b]Bookmarks[/b]

https://similarworlds.com/bookmarks


You can also [b][u]disable[/u][/b] the Share and Bookmark buttons for all your posts, in your Privacy Settings.

[b]Please Note:[/b] The 'Share Link' and 'Bookmark' buttons do not impact your privacy:
- Private or Limited posts remain private/limited.
- Sharing or Bookmarking a post does not create a copy of the body of your post.
- If you ever delete a post, it will become inaccessible even if it was shared or saved in the past.
- This is not different than someone manually copying the link or bookmarking in their browser.
- Please note that no website can control whether someone copies the text or takes a screenshot of your post.

---

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

[b]UPDATE:[/b] For those who requested, it's now possible to [b]Hide Post[/b] (and Comments) [u]directly from the Post page[/u]. Just press the 🚩 Flag icon and the option will pop out.
Thank you for your feedback.

SledgeHammer · 46-50, M
@Nuno DIRECT-!
AWESOME..
Once again, SW Team putting it in gear..
👍
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
@Nuno would just a hide, mute, block or report user be a possibility on a comment via the same flag?

Instead of going to the users profile?

Asking for other users because I don't mute or block anyone.

Hiding a post... don't we have enough "features" that hide people already?
When can we see the down vote removed?
marsbar · F
Thank you for all your hard work. As you know, not everyone will agree with these updates, but know there are many of us who appreciate them.
Loretta78 · 41-45, F
The bookmark is one of the best new features you´ve created. Thanks for that! 👍
Though a change or two in the past, may not be something I'd choose, I appreciate your dedication and best efforts, in all your hard work.

You certainly can't please all the people all the time, as interests are diverse, and I think people should appreciate how hard you and your team have worked, from EP, to our SW site. I don't feel other sites could ever match this, however, strictly as my own personal opinion, I feel simple design, is better design, and makes for much better navigation. Meaning, the easiest to understand and navigate, as I feel the more bells and whistles added, the greater the chance for site overkill and confusion. But...that's just me.

I have to be honest. There's only one change I do not like to this day, and never will, and WHY it was changed, I'll never know, because it was absolutely perfect the way it was. It didn't Need fixing. Now...I really hate it, I'm sorry. I find it an extremely irritating mess. That's why I truly even hate going to the questions section now, and can't get used to it. I used to enjoy it. Not anymore. I know many prefer all the glam and glimmer. Being old-fashioned, 😂🤣 yes, I admit it, but only as far as a couple things in life, I prefer what I call the "basic, clean, bare necessity format", in thinking of newcomers. Yet!! I can't deny you've done a great job. Thus, I sincerely thank you, as you have our best interest heart, and it shows.

I like the hide post feature. Some posts disgust me...and I don't want them in my feed.

I don't have my glasses on so I will read this later maybe 😁
HannahSky · F
"actions against" sounds a little negative
Degbeme · 70-79, M
Thank you for this. Now I can get @SW-User from stalking me. 🤭

I like this. I may find a post unenjoyable. but that may not mean the poster will NEVER post something worth reading.

And bookmark - YES!
chuck7882 · 61-69, M
With this feature, which I like, hopefully you realize there is no longer a need for the downvote feature. Please get rid of it
masterofyou · 70-79, M
Pretty soon we wont be able to see anything so I will just go into hiding lololol ...
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
Not likely to use them. Especially the share and bookmarks.

Foxfire's bookmarks and share features do the same thing. Collections are basically just like folders and I can embed folders at multiple levels.

On the hide featured, it's unclear what effects it does to that user. So until this is made clear I won't use it.
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
Additional note.

Must say that both sharing and bookmarks might make more sense if you also include them on first level replies.

As long as there is a link, which there is on the time/date stamp, Foxfire can do both posts and first level replies.
Those are great features . Thanks for all you do.
JerseyGal · 51-55, F
Thank you for the new features and updates!
I like the direction your going here. My own complaint is that it doesn't feel right to report a post when all one wants to do is hide it from their feed. But it's nice that it's an option.
Nuno · Admin
@froggtongue "Hide Post" does not report the post.
ninalanyon · 61-69, T
@Nuno But you have to press the report button to get there. I'm generally reluctant to click anything labelled report or flag in case it has some immediately negative effect.
@Nuno it's as @ninalanyon said.
That’s awesome. Can we have two top comments? Sometimes we assign a BC and then after a while somebody else gives a better/more informative answer on that question; but reassigning BC sounds v rude.
SW-User
@Vivaci Just give BC to you lol on your posts!🤪
Just kidding Viva!😂
😆 Only if its a quiz question and you’re giving the answer...otherwise who does it? 😅 @SW-User
InHeaven · F
Now upload videos feature please
Piper · 61-69, F
I especially appreciate the bookmarking a post feature, and have seen others requesting the other. Both are great, and [b]thank[/b] you.
Mindful · 51-55, F
This is probably your best added feature! Thanks. After I read a post, I don’t want to keep seeing it if I’m looking for the most recent posts.
Classified · M
Just now I noticed people starting to talk in a moths old post, which I don't like. Obviously I can't get the original post back in my feed. Does that mean I can't mute that post?
Classified · M
@HootyTheNightOwl No? 😮
It's just an old post I don't like where people started taking in again, which caused some comments to appear on my feed.
@Classified Hopefully, @Nuno can help you with that...
Classified · M
@HootyTheNightOwl Thank you 😃
wretch · M
does this hiding posts option have some sort of hidden double-secret probation reputation impact?

silentwriter180 · 51-55, F
Thank you. This would be a good feature. Helpful to hide the post without blocking the author. I know I will put this one to use.
TheGoodGuy · M
*hides this post* 🤭
Just kidding sweet cheeks 🤭🤭

Good feature though.
You get the seal of approval
Can we get the best answer back ?
@SW-User best answer was better
Loretta78 · 41-45, F
@mysteryespresso I agree.
@mysteryespresso I think the reason they changed it was that not everything people post is a question, so you can't necessarily answer everything.
FreestyleArt · 31-35, M
Thank you. That way I can paste my story script and transfer to another computer. don't want to spoil it
MellyMel22 · F
[i][c=BF0080]Does it hide the comments on the feed to the posts we hide?[/c][/i]
Nuno · Admin
MellyMel22 · F
@Nuno [i][c=BF0080]Perfect! I was always thinking to myself I wish that could be done when I’d see some. Thanks![/c][/i]
Any way to stop our profile and about me from being listed on Google yet???
yellowsnow · 51-55, M
Can I still post dick pics?
Valerian · 100+, M
@yellowsnow
Dick Van Dyke or Dick Cavett?
Valerian · 100+, M
@yellowsnow Not YOURS!
Too Many People will Die Laughing 😂🤣😅
PhaqueYou · M
@Valerian you just go and on and on.. don't ya?
Sheer · F
Awesome changes! I don't understand the first one though: Why would we need to hide a singular post from our feed, that we already saw? Wouldn't it be better if we could just hide all posts from some users (without completely blocking them)?

I also wanted to ask, about the post collections! Why not make it so we can choose to make them public? It would be really cool to be able to see other people's favorite posts! ☺️
Thanks for all your hard work 🙂
JoyfulSilence · 46-50, M
I want a button that limits post to only the cool or interesting posts!

😁

Sometimes it is really boring on here.

At times like those I try to contribute, since I am that bored. But I am too boring, judging by how much my posts are ignored.

I want to be entertained, hee hee!
SkeetSkeet · 100+, F
Are you single?
Valerian · 100+, M
@SkeetSkeet I don't think 🤔 he's a Twin👬
I love the bookmark feature!
bookerdana · M
will hide posts from feed allow friends to see? And is there a way to do it creating an unofficial BLOG?>>
bookerdana · M
@Nuno got it BUT you can mark one of your posts as friends only see,right?
Nuno · Admin
@bookerdana Yes - that's a different feature :)
bookerdana · M
@Nuno thanks,i only see a check not a drop down menu,,i'll check it out
Magenta · F
Excellent! Thank you! ❣️
SW-User
Yaay! Thank you!
ExtremeNext · 31-35, F
SilkenMist · 46-50, F
I thought "stop receiving notifications on this post" did the same thing?
SW-User
@SilkenMist yassss! That's the idea, to just be able to mute a post we don't like.
SilkenMist · 46-50, F
@SW-User I logged on and saw the admins had added a new feature and you know how this place is. Put it this way - I could hear the angry queefing of SW before I even read what it was about.
SW-User
@SilkenMist They let us vote on it
A magnificent idea. This works well on IG and will be successful here too.
ExtremeNext · 31-35, F
I will say thank you even though you didn't return my lovely gift I sent you 😩
Lackwittyname · 51-55, M
Hmm why do I not see those options, just the reasons to report a post?
JerseyGal · 51-55, F
@Lackwittyname
When I click on the post to read it, I do not have that option.
The only way I have those options is from my feed/home. I have to click on the flag from there without opening that post.
Can we get notifications on our posts when others bookmark them?
LokiBecky · 18-21, F
That’s suck a good idea
Didn’t realise you can do this
This is most excellent. 😂 Wish I'd read it before.
CrazyMusicLover · 31-35
Thank you!!! This is the best new feature so far.
