We just upgraded Inkbunny and there's a bunch of new stuff to tell you about.
But it takes us a while to get the list of changes together and write a journal about it. So we'll tell you about the most important new feature this week. News about the other updates will follow soon.
Friends - Private Content
You might have noticed that there is now a "+Friend" option on user accounts.
When you Friend someone (and if they accept the Friend Request) you will then be able to share Private Content with them (you will see their private content, and they will see yours).
Private Content is a submission, journal or stream that has been set as visible to "Friends Only".
The option to set an item "Friends Only" is under the "Edit" option for that item, or in the options when you first create the item.
Friends List - Confirmed and Pending requests
You can always see your list of Friends by clicking the Friends link at the top of your userpage.
Your friends list is private and no one else can see it (except moderators of course).
Incoming requests and accepted requests will appear in your Unread Notices. But the Friends list is there so you can always keep track of it all even if you clear those notices.
You can also use this list to keep track of requests that have been made that have not yet been accepted (by you or by others).
Making all new content Friends-only by default
You can set the Friends-only option enabled by default. Just choose this option in your Account Settings. It means that anything new you create will have the Friend-only option ticked automatically.
This is useful for anyone who wants a 100% private-content account.
How to turn Friends Requests Off
If you have no intention of sharing private content, and you don't want to be spammed with Friend Requests from people, then you can turn off Friend Requests in your Account Settings https://inkbunny.net/account.php#private
You can still send Friend Requests to other people if you disable this. It just removes the +Friend link from your userpage and stops people sending requests to you.
There have also been changes to the TOS as we remove the old sales system and get ready for the new one. The major difference is that under the new system artists are responsible for processing payments individually and Inkbunny just acts as a sales management tool (not a payment processor). More news about that coming soon!
