Secondary Feed & Presets 💫

Hi Similar Worlds 🏄‍♂️ 🥘

We've just released:

1) Secondary Feed

2) Presets for Customize Feed

--

[big]Secondary Feed[/big]

You can create a secondary feed by pressing "+ Add Secondary Feed" in the Customize Feed settings:



If you do that, you can select the configurations for each of the feeds:



You can also give names to your secondary Feed:



Once saved, you can switch between both feeds on your homepage:




[big]Presets[/big]

There are a number of desired configurations that are very popular, so we thought it would be easier to just have those as "Presets", so you can simply select by pressing one button:



Don't forget to Save!


--

[b]Tip:[/b] This "Customize Feed" can be found by opening the sidebar:



And then press the "Customize Feed" button:




---

Thank you for your support.

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

Hi everyone,

We've just found some small issue with the Feeds that we noticed was filtering posts from specific users, more than we intended to, which we've just corrected.

Everyone should be seeing a lot more posts now, hopefully.
(depending on the users, this could affect some users more than others)


We are not actively making more changes to the Feeds at the moment - but we've just noticed this problem, investigated and corrected.

Please keep bringing your feedback.

Have a great weekend, all.
SW-User
@Nuno Certain users? Did you implement Miram's changes?
MartinII · 70-79, M
@Nuno Interesting, and possibly helpful. But why won’t you reply to my and others’ commu?

Oh GOOD GIREF!!

Set us free.

Please give us an 'original feed' setting....

This is doing my head in!
@Magenta I get they are thinking this is a marvellous solution... And maybe it is.

But unless we understand exactly how it works, we are all just moving sliders in [i]hopeful ignorance [/i].

For me.... I've never used a "secondary feed", I want to see what everyone is talking about.... Otherwise I might miss something new and interesting .

It's getting so complex, I don't think I know how to use SW very well anymore.
@OogieBoogie That's why I only hang around here. What the hell is a secondary feed?
@fernie2 LAWD knows!
I'm having enough trouble wrestling this one 😂
Just give us an option to return the feed to normal! I just want to see ALL post in chronological order like before all this!! Nobody is asking for these changes actually we are asking for you to stop! You say youre open to suggestions but when we all say change it back we arnt listened to im just so frustrated with this lately i dont see certain people anemore or Qs dont refresh for 15 mins at a time! If you really listen to our suggestions then make a poll or something but people are leaving this site and you dont seem to care
@TryingtoLava I don't see how hard it is to turn off the algorithm for one of the presets. But they probably threw the old system away already.
@canusernamebemyusername thats why im upset the peeps whove been here for years DESERVE to be listened to tbh
@canusernamebemyusername what language are you speaking?
Why is it every time there are "improvements", I feel as though I need a college degree to get through them?
assemblingaknob · 26-30, F
@PrivateHell You're getting old.
Like myself.
Welp. For those still pining for the original chronological order, I finally got an answer:

TrunkZ · 56-60, M
@Nadie the settings do have their purpose when you want to filter the feed, I guess, but it seems many would appreciate a button to get a purely chronological feed. That would be the best of both (similar) worlds
Andrew · Admin
@Nadie
Ok.
As long as the response gives an explanation to the issue you raised, that's what's important.

@Nuno I liked it like it WAS! There was NOTHING Out Of Order or in Want of Customizing that I could see that I NEEDED!

The Post, That I Posted Replies To, were there usually there to read Other's Replies as I Wished.

Now they're OUT of TIME ORDER more often than not! The Replies aren't nesting under the Comment being Replied TO!

They're all stacked up at the bottom together with other Replies to the same Comment and in some ODD ORDER.

[b]I agree with[/b] @MartinII [b]wholeheartedly![/b]
[quote]@Nuno We don’t want to customize anything. We just want to see what members, if there are any left, have said. Why do you not listen?[/quote]

Was the newest post before yours really 44 minutes ago? This is the problem I’m still having. If I don’t do a search for key words, I don’t see much. And I already adjusted the settings the way Andrew recommended.

Nuno · Admin
@SW-User (and Everyone) - please let me know if anything improved for you today. Many thanks.
SW-User
@Nuno I’ll check it out. Thank you.
SW-User
@Nuno Okay. It’s been a day. I do see more people’s posts than I was able to before. 👍
Carazaa · F
Thanks but many here just want things to stay the way it was a year ago. Personally its too confusing now! Do you like your cell setttings to change, or your email settings to change? Why does it have to be so complicated and so many settings?
ExtremeNext · 31-35, F
Bla bla bla bla bla bla

Good lord enough it's not even amusing any more just down right annoying and dumb

You hope we stay with SW? you have a funny way of showing it

Whatever , I didn't even read half of this 😡
SW-User
i just want to see people lose it over updates
so thank you
this make me happy
Lilymoon · F
Thanks Nuno I appreciate your trying to improve things but really you should have just left well enough alone. ✌️
Lilymoon · F
@FreeSpirit1 Yeah I've given up trying to understand it. They should have just left it alone. It's even worse now. lol

I didn't even bother reading this. 🙄
SW-User
I'm too old for this
Making things way to complex.

One of the cornerstones to this site was that it operated on an open forum.

This helped to weed out much of the unwanted behaviors.

But now you're creating multiple avenues to foster mal-intent ....why?

Many of us are no longer able to respond to our friends posts.
This seems backwards from the main idea.

Is this to increase income in some way?

And you say you listen to your users but it appears most do not wish for these changes....so....why?
Keeper · M
Why would I need a second feed? Just create another site.

Seriously, none of this makes any sense 🙄
Valerian · 100+, M
Could you Email us the Manual in PDF form?
Complete with keywords searches and an Index?
And Where's the "Feed before we started screwing with it" option - or better yet... the old feed???
SW-User
just when i thought the nonsense with the changes was over..NOPE 🤣
SW-User
The new feed system is absolutely horrendous. Even though I have my settings set to groups that I follow ONLY, I'm still getting posts through on every tab that are from groups I am NOT following.

@Nanori Nano, I wish you would come over and slap some sense into them!
Can you give us a “pre-new configurations” feed option please?
All this seems unnecessary

WHAT exactly are you trying to do...
You guys get bored or what? 😁
iamelijah · 26-30, M
This is too much for me to understand.
Tminus6453 · M
My feed is still messed up though, i dont even get some threads alot of the time and other threads just disappear after i refresh, and yet others come in in a weird chronological order
Bushmanoz · 56-60, M
You lost me after Hi.. all a bit too complicated for me
I just tried the all users, time based option and the feed is still not in chronological order. That's all I want. Tell me what to doooooooooo. 😩
bookerdana · M
Thank you for keeping us apprised of the new feed..what many including myself question is where are the benefits,many of my groups disappeared and the most popular group seems to be RANDOM..we used to be able to switch between friends and the normal feed.
With the new changes its like going from a Chevy Nova dash to an F-16,without benefit.

I appreciate that a lot of work went into this overhaul but if you had simply added "blogs" I would have been more attisfied
BlueVeins · 22-25
i like this
hunkalove · 61-69, M
Who cares about this crap?
JustNik · 51-55, F
Yay!! Everything looks just like it did. Lovely. Thanks so much Nuno! 😄👍
JustNik · 51-55, F
@Lilymoon this is what I have - if that helps. I hope you find something that works for you. I know it’s been a frustration. 🤗
Friends

Everyone
Lilymoon · F
@JustNik I will try that... thanks Nik!!
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
Know why the feeds are the way you have them.

Know why you won't won't allow a true chronological order.

Know why the feeds don't have all posts.

Yet most that are "active" don't really want any of that.

[center][/center]
It's like when your parents take away the cake and tell you to eat healthy but realise they're missing out on cake too and bring it back to the table as something else, but it's still cake.
@PirateMonkeyCabinet I really think they've just wasted their time.
PirateMonkeyCabinet · 36-40, M
@V00doo I agree, but I get a feeling they're just in too deep now to accept a loss. Too many manhours spent, too much pride in their pet project.
hello i am in the process of using this site for self benefit . like learning emotional control of myself and a better understanding of clickbait. one i can do with out being vip and the other clickbait would vip give me a better understanding of how this works by the memes and who clicks what and when.. and when i mean click bait i will live a video for you to see what i see.
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2xHZPH5Sng]
IN SHORT WHAT WOULD VIP GIVE ME to be able to help me .
@markansas VIP has no effect on feed settings, so you'll just have to tweak those like everyone else. And the feed settings for free members give you plenty of control, so you have everything you need regardless of being a VIP member.
Spica · 31-35, F
I feel like this is too much work for the average IQ user. Lolz

Still a lot better than the first update though.
ImRileyTheDog · 22-25, F
Okay okay

I see you guys trying to get me back on here

And it’s kinda working🥴
HannibalAteMeOut · 22-25, F
Help, I want to be able to change the names of both feeds 😪
assemblingaknob · 26-30, F
OMG so cutttteeee. Now I can have a feed that says "Andrew" 🙈
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
Why do I need a secondary feed???????

Sounds like outlook’s silly upgrade to their inbox of focused and other mail. I miss half of my emails thanks to that. Now I’ll miss half of the sw feed
Nuno · Admin
@Jenny1234 The Secondary feed is optional. It's not like Outlook's. It's just for those who want different filters/behaviors, so we give those the choice. (like @PirateMonkeyCabinet explained anyway)
PirateMonkeyCabinet · 36-40, M
@Nuno It is optional for those that want multiple settings, yes, but I also explained that essentially multiple feeds is of little worth if neither feeds do the kind of jobs the user wants, but you conveniently left that out.
Carazaa · F
OK maybe its not so confusing after all 😁
smileylovesgaming · 31-35, F
I just want the original home page
Notsimilar · 31-35, F
Request; Blogs 😬

bookerdana · M
@Notsimilar yesssssssss
Just getting back to this ...I need help guys.

My feed seems repetitive, even though I think i have replies set low .

Can anyone help with how to set my feed settings to get as close to 'see everything in chronological order

Every time I tweak my feed, it seems better, but over time it seems to narrow...amd this is EXATLY what I DON'T want .
@OogieBoogie Halfway there... 🤣
@HootyTheNightOwl 😂😂😂
