Privacy Settings return in just a few hours. It’s in staging being tested as we speak.
In addition to fixing all the iCHIVE changes you suggested, we’re taking it one step further by implementing a 10 minute moderation window to submissions. Once a photo is submitted it will take 10 minutes for the photo to appear in the feed, this will prevent spam almost entirely. We will narrow the window down to 5 minutes once it’s running on all cylinders. Expect this new feature in the next few days!
iCHIVE is also bridging the gap between iCHIVE and theCHIVE. If your iCHIVE photo submission is good enough it will receive ‘Ultimate Recognition’ now in the DMA and DAR! We’ve always wanted to give our Chivers credit for the photos you submit and now you’re going to get it, complete with links to your iCHIVE page. You are now going to participate with us on the big show and soon you’ll receive points for scoring photos on theCHIVE that can be redeemed at theCHIVERY! We know this has been a big ask of Chivers for years and it’s finally happening.
