    it would be ads for not-logged-in users i reckon,

    not a bad scheme, i have thought about it vaguely but don't like the idea of having google embedded (though they are already tracking us with analytics non- stop btw)
    https://stream-seo.com/best-google-a...-alternatives/

    if we monetise then we can fix the software after all

    Seems like you can upload jpgs but not jpegs on here? Which is what iPhone screenshots are?

    That canít be right can it?
    the intention would be to make it as hard as possible for soft-handed iphone users to contribute, yes i like that

    there are a few options to do a total upgrade onto a different software that is still maintained, like that of U75 (zenforo) or 555-555 (Discourse i think), as VB is imho past it. I think some of the customisations and fun stuff, like the tags and that would proably drop off in the migration, but it might be the right thing to do longterm

    also, i tried to get the internet archive to mirror abut 20,000 youtubes from dissensus' first decade or so a while ago, they were up fr it, but i'm not sure whether they got around to it,
    the british library have confirmed that they will make an archive tho, so that's kinda i'm interested to know how they will do it, as it's not altogether a trivial task. I have got a simple static (ie HTML, doesn't need internet server, databases etc but no images or extra goodies like tags) copy of the site, just in case, like

    or downgrade your phone?
    um, sufi...this is huge news, deserves it's own thread and discussion!!

    It's true. It paid for my apple and bowl of cornflakes.

    why would anyone want to buy dissensus? don't get me wrong i love this website but it's just 20-30 regulars and a bunch of visitors isn't it? is that already enough to get money out of it?

    Leo would get my vote too, but we need Barty in the background as his sidekick I reckon. Be good to demonstrate how Dissensus appeals to an multigenerational audience.
