I really enjoy using waterfall and I'd like to follow more blogs, and I'm sure a lot of you do too, especially since theres been an influx of new people! reblog this if you usually log in around at least once a month and we can find eachother! <3<3<3
me, staring at the UI of this site and other social medias to try and work out why people don't like ours
I commented with "god bless" but I'm in annoyed developer mode now while I wait for our storage server to spin down so I can yank the dead drive
It boils down to "folks are spoiled". Look at Tumblr and Twitter and what have you. They're pretty, but work shit. Like I said on staff the other day, those sites have successfully shifted the mindset to a site needs to look good to be worth using. Hell, that Other:tm: site we were talking to - the staff wrote us off because we looked plain. You used that site briefly so you know how badly the site worked because they put too much effort into looking good.
The problem is folks EXPECT a site to run like ass now but look good. So when a site lets you do stuff but is just to-the-point with how it looks, it doesn't "feel" right so they can't use it. Like in the Discord, we've had folks say "once I found it it seemed really obvious it'd be there" to where the settings on here are and stuff - because we've built it logically rather than all Modern React/Vue UIs and shit, but because EVERYWHERE ON THE INTERNET does that shit, Waterfall feels too foreign in comparison because we're not fucking around with it.
And when stuff feels like too much of a change, you're put off using it, even if it's better.
Many people seem to think it foolish, even superstitious, to believe that the world could still change for the better. And it is true that in winter it is sometimes so bitingly cold that one is tempted to say, ‘What do I care if there is a summer; its warmth is no help to me now.’ Yes, evil often seems to surpass good. But then, in spite of us, and without our permission, there comes at last an end to the bitter frosts. One morning the wind turns, and there is a thaw. And so I must still have hope.
Reuploading this as an art post this time
A 2019 piece that I wanted to put here to bolster the blog a little
First of what is likely to be many Faira posts because she is my favourite OC and I draw her the most despite having like 23 others that need attention >.>
so, two people completely independently called my drawings "almost professional" so i need to know what you guys think of those too! Those are some of the pics i did for the VK secret project - New Year Rupphire comic!
Idea: you know how on tumblr, themed blog types end with "-blr" (ex. witchblr, mineblr, writblr, etc.)
Well how about on here we call them "-fall" (ex. witchfall, minefall, writfall)
the UI is a little more...smth than I'm used to but I think I could get used to using this site. I just hope a lot of my mutuals from Tumblr eventually show up here bc damn I love my Tumblr dash
