What do we think of the new logo?

[โ€“] [email protected] 40 points 3 months ago

Look oddly more mature. I digg it.

[โ€“] FlashZordon 29 points 3 months ago

A classy evolution of the previous logos. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

[โ€“] lazycouchpotato 13 points 3 months ago

I love the new up/downvote colors but when I swipe on a comment to upvote it's still orange/purple. Anyway to make that match the new upvote color?

This app is great! Keep it up!

[โ€“] [email protected] 14 points 3 months ago

Good catch.

I know eh? This is how burn out happens though...

[โ€“] Death_Equity 12 points 3 months ago

They seem to do bursts of progress and then take a break or at least slows down a lot; hopefully that is them balancing things, taking care of themself, and taking care of core responsibilities.

In Sync Ultra previews, when no image is available, the old colors are still shown:

[โ€“] ljdawson 17 points 3 months ago

Oooh good spot cheers

[โ€“] dotMonkey 28 points 3 months ago (2 children)

Swipe left on comment/post to upvote still the old orange colour. Otherwise, looking great!

[โ€“] ljdawson 16 points 3 months ago

Fixed for the next release.

[โ€“] [email protected] 9 points 3 months ago

Great point, it would be ideal if the swipe animation color matches whatever you pick in the settings.

[โ€“] [email protected] 22 points 3 months ago (3 children)

I absolutely appreciate all the work done recently, but I was wondering if there was any chance we could get thumbnails that, when clicked, don't have ?thumbnail=1500&format=webp appended to them. For some posts, it doesn't make a difference, but for longer posts, or posts with smaller text, it makes the image blurry unless you click into the post comments, and select the image there. It feels like a needless extra step when trying to open an image.

[โ€“] [email protected] 16 points 3 months ago

LJ is coming back and is absolutely crushing it with these updates. Thank you, sir. (ใ‚ท_ _)ใ‚ท

[โ€“] [email protected] 15 points 3 months ago (1 children)

Having an annoying bug where regardless of whether I change the upvote or downvote colour, it is the upvote colour that gets changed.

[โ€“] ljdawson 17 points 3 months ago (1 children)

Just fixed and pushed the patch live!

[โ€“] [email protected] 9 points 3 months ago

The blue looks nice

[โ€“] ConditionOverload 14 points 3 months ago

Love the new logo, but especially LOVE the option to change upvote and downvote colors!

It was great on Reddit when usernames would end with a dash and so it seemed like a comment had a negative score.

Ljdawson you crazy sunuvabitch you done it again! Is there no end to how you kill it each time, Sync is just the best!

[โ€“] [email protected] 9 points 3 months ago (1 children)

Not sure if it's just me, but now upvotes are blue and down votes orange in both the button color and the vote count color after voting. Seems backwards? I'm used to orange being upvotes and blue being down.

[โ€“] [email protected] 12 points 3 months ago* (last edited 3 months ago) (1 children)

Oh, you must have missed the whole conversation here: https://lemmy.world/post/12922184

There was a whole thing about it. This is how Lemmy itself does it, so Sync changed to match.

Edit to add:

[โ€“] [email protected] 11 points 3 months ago* (last edited 3 months ago) (1 children)

Oh that's weird (that Lemmy is reversed I mean). I guess I can just customize them back so no big deal. I kept getting confused thinking I accidentally downvoted stuff.

[โ€“] [email protected] 8 points 3 months ago (1 children)

That's fair, and why there's the option included to change the colors back ๐Ÿ˜

Took me a min to get used to, since I don't really use the web ui much, but I like the colors and it makes more sense to me to follow the colors that actually match the rest of this platform instead of that other one.

[โ€“] [email protected] 5 points 3 months ago

I agree that consistency is good, so the change is probably for the better. For me though, the old way makes more sense when considering the nature of the platform: orange for "hot" and blue for "cold". Plays better into the sorting algorithm of the frontpage for me.

Is instance blocking in the app yet and I can't find it?

[โ€“] [email protected] 8 points 3 months ago (2 children)

Instance filtering has been a thing for a while. Or do you mean native blocking?

Do you think you'd be able to add a means of embedding images in a comment, please? We're pretty close with the link feature, but it just needs an exclamation mark for it to embed.

Thank you!

[โ€“] ljdawson 5 points 3 months ago (5 children)

What do you mean sorry? Sync already adds the !

Given we already have an app icon chooser implemented, could we get an 'old' icon that uses red/blue for up/down? You pretty much just have to rotate the existing icon 180

When previewing the post or comment being made, pictures that are in the portrait style aspect ratio do not show up in the preview.

Here's an example:
Landscape

Portrait

Landscape

Result

There's also an issue with uploading pictures. All 3 of the pictures on the above example failed to upload unless I cropped them. Using the crop tool and sizing it to be the original aspect ratio/size does seem to bypass the issues.

Cropped example

[โ€“] [email protected] 5 points 3 months ago (1 children)

All of your pictures loaded and looked fine for me.

And uploading also works fine for me. It's probably an issue with your instance or file format? Are your pictures JPEG, or maybe some other format such as HEIC? (By cropping, it's probably converted to jpeg regardless of what the original format was)
