Hello Atmos community! I'm James, one of the lead developers of the site.
After tirelessly working on this project for eight months, hopefully it would have been worth the wait. I spent many of my weekend nights coding until 5 AM and it seems to have paid off. Making a social media site is no easy task, especially so if you're a group of high-schoolers doing it for free.
It seems that you guys are enjoying the site, but we're always looking to improve. Bug reports, criticisms, and the like should go to our emails, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com, respectively. Now that we've launched, the devs are probably going to want to take a breather, and I'm also picking up a paid web development job, but we'll still maintain the site in our spare time.
I'm sure you guys can't wait for communities and collections. Those are our top priority right now, apart from fixing site-breaking bugs (if we find any).
We were about to submit a support ticket because restarting the network and even the server as a whole clearly wasn't fixing the issue but everything appears to be working now, albeit a bit sluggish on some pages. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The extra strange part is that even though the issue was with network connectivity in general, I found that certain pages were consistently being loaded while others were slower, or consistently didn't load, even when I cleared the cache. Some things just can't be explained...
Atmos has been updated again. We were sitting on about two weeks' worth of changes so here's a summary:
Other things: Our server now stores images by hash to conserve storage with duplicate uploads. Admins and developers can look at fancy graphs that enable us to better measure the growth of the Atmos community as a whole.
Things to expect in the near future: - Actual caching - A reasonable content filter - Collections - Communities - Multiple images per post... I promise... - Delete account button w/ email verification (not like you’d ever need to use it, r-right?) - Report system that doesn’t involve sending us an email manually
Report any bugs you see to a developer (preferably surepy or I).
Oh, wait, just kidding, apparently our codebase won't be changed for another 7 hours, see pic related :^)
