February 2019


The Tildes Issue Log is a monthly recurring post about the changes and progression that Tildes has made. Highlighting some of the newest additions and changes, as well as a complete table of every issue opened and closed in that month, along with some interesting statistics so you can get a look into the development process and a quick grasp of anything you may have missed.


If anything is incorrect or you have anything that you'd like to see changed or added please open an issue, PM me or comment on the posted topic on Tildes.

If you'd like to write a highlight section or want to contribute in any other way, feel free to do so. Like Tildes, this will remain entirely open-source.



On the 1st of February, Deimos posted a topic announcing some changes and tweaks to experiment with and what people would think of them. Like removing the username of link-topics on the topic listing and putting the domain where the username went instead, amongst others. There was a lot of discussion on that topic, and after a couple weeks @hungariantoast also posted a topic talking about the changes which also got some great discussion.

On the 16th of February, Tildes hit a big milestone and became publicly-viewable. Allowing anyone without an account to look at Tildes and browse around, participating in the topics and comments still requires an account (which still requires an invite) but at least people can peek inside now! If you know of anyone that was on the fence about Tildes because they couldn't see what it was like, maybe talk to them again. ;)

About half a year ago, I opened an issue regarding the themes, as (at the time) the way themes were done was a little all over the place so I wanted to clean it up a little, making it so new ones could be added in an easier fashion. Fast forward a few months and the new system is merged in. And now, in the same announcement as becoming publicly-viewable, Tildes also received its first new theme using the new theme system. Dracula! :D A colorscheme I'm particularly fond of (if you haven't already noticed this site also uses Dracula). So I definitely recommend you check it out on Tildes, you can change your theme in your settings at the top or if you're not logged in, at the footer of the main site.

A quick update on the scraping, as noted in last month's post, soon there will be statistics on the activity on Tildes itself. I've made a folder with graphs that I'm currently generating. I decided not to add them to this page yes as the total size of them is a few megabytes and they aren't optimized. However once I do I'll also go back and add each graph to the corresponding month, and probably also add a separate page for the total statistics.
