Software Update, No More Gray Boxes, Lower Payout Minimum, Bigger Hi Res Files

Hi everyone,

We just finished updating Inkbunny to Beta Version 22. There's one big important change and a bunch of smaller useful ones. Full list is at the end of this journal.

No More Gray Boxes

The biggest change is that if you block submissions by a keyword, they no longer show as pointless "Blocked" grayed-out thumbnails.

Blocked submissions are now totally hidden and won't get in the way. If you prefer to have the gray blocked thumbnails back so you can still see what is being hidden from you, just go to Account Settings and change the setting under "Misc".

BBCode Shortcuts

We now have a quick codes you can type to access the most common BBCodes.

For example you can now type @ starling (with no space after the @ symbol) to get a usericon and name like this: @starling.

We also have shortcuts for FurAffinity and Sofurry account links like this someguy, someguy. Just type "fa! someguy" (with no space or quotes) for FA links, and "sf! someguy" for Sofurry links.

Embedding thumbnails also has shortcuts now. "#M 9412" (with no space or quotes) will show a medium thumbnail for submission 9412. Small and large can be access with  "#S 9412" and  "#L 9412" so you get:

Lina the Skyrider by dragoon86
Lina the Skyrider by dragoon86
Lina the Skyrider by dragoon86

Lower Alertpay Minimum Payouts to Artists

Artists now get paid when their Account Balance reaches a minimum of $5. This is down from $10 previously.

Bigger Hi Res Files

Following several requests, we have increased the maximum file size limit for Hi Res uploads (for print and digital sales) to 300MB. This is useful for artists now uploading entire yearly collections of their art as portfolios for sale.

Full List of Changes for this Version

Latest changes  are always listed on the Revisions page, but I copy them here for the convenience of anyone reading this as an email.

    *  New Feature - Submissions blocked by Rating or Keywords are now totally hidden. They will not show in Gallery or other views at all, so no more annoing gray "blocked" thumbnails. You can put it back into the "gray blocked thumbnails" mode if you like, by changing the setting in Account Settings.

    * New Feature - Inkbunny Wiki pages will now begin to give more detailed info about site features. The first (and only page so far!) is called Prints - Sizes, Shipping, Technical. Links to this detailed print info are in the site Footer and also on the Sales File upload page.

    * Watch, Donate and Private Message links are now on Gallery and Scraps pages.

    * New Feature - New BBCode tags. Linking to user pages on common external sites. So far we have FurAffinity and Sofurry. These will display the username as a link, with a little icon beside it showing the site it will go to.

           [fa]username[/fa] to create a quick link to a FurAffinity user page.

           [sf]username[/sf] to create a quick link to a Sofurry user page.

    * New Feature - BBCode shortcuts for common BBCode tags. You can now type special quick codes that will work the same as the BBCode tags they link to.

           New Shortcuts include:

            @ username (with no space) to quickly show the username with an icon and link to userpage (same as typing [iconname]username[/iconname]).

            #S 9412, #M 9412 and #L 9412 (with no spaces) for small, medium and large thumbnail links. Eg: #M 9412 is the same as typing [mediumthumb]9412[/mediumthumb].

            fa! username ("fa" followed by exclamation mark "!" and then username) will show a link to "username" account on Furaffinity.net like username

            sf! username ("sf" followed by exclamation mark "!" and then username) will show a link to "username" account on Sofurry.com like username

            All quick links are case-insensitive so #m 9412 is the same as #M 9412 (no spaces again). See BBcode Help for more details.

    * BBCode button for "URL" will now ask for a URL when you click it, and insert it automatically for you.

    * The Join and Login buttons are now much bigger when you aren't logged in.

    * Video player now resizes to match the maximum possible size and correct aspect ratio within the maximum allowed by the site layout (920px wide). You still have to click the Full Screen mode button on the player, or Download the original file to see it in original size if it's bigger than 920px wide.

Thanks everyone!

All these features are great! And so quickly being added!
if I may ask;
What's the word on being able to lock out comments? :3

When are you going to add the ability to filter out items by rating (i.e. seeing only mature, not general or adult) or type (i.e. not seeing stories)?
13 years, 10 months ago
Well, you can't filter out General rated images, but on your Allowed Ratings page (the link is in  the "Welcome to Inkbunny" message just under the Post, Sales, Bookshelf, and Exit buttons) you can filter out Mature or Adult rated images based on the sexual or violent content.

Can't filter by type yet, though.

I know. Some of us only care about the porn. :P

And I know you can't filter by type, that's why I asked when it would become possible. Doesn't seem that hard to implement. And as far as the ratings thing goes, simply having three (functional, obviously) checkboxes would do it, one for each rating you do/don't want to see.

Wow, making blocked keywords not show up at all is really excellent. Great work!

Is anyone thinking about/working on possibly allowing a member's name to be put in the blocked tags list, so all of their work would be filtered out?

could you add the strikethrough BBCode, please?
13 years, 10 months ago
I 2nd this.

You should use the [code] stuff [/code] feature Starling. Eliminate the "Without spaces"  bit ;)

You can only edit within ten minutes of posting the comment, but it is a nice feature that's been in place since before the private beta started. :)

Hey, that's plenty of time to edit out quirky mistakes
13 years, 10 months ago
I think you can edit your own journal whenever you want. You can only edit comments for 10 minutes.

Makes sense

Instead of simply forcing the 920px maximum pixel ratio on a user trying to view a full sized video, why not base it off of their actual video size. Such as when you're browsing artwork on the site you have the choice to expand it to fit more of your screen, just do the same with a video. I suppose a bit like what YouTube did where you can click the expand button on the video and it will take up more of the space on the screen that way an HD video played on the player can look as nice as possible.
