Anonymous asked: Hey, is there any way you might consider making a private backup option available? Essentially, I'd like to back up my blog before deletion so obviously I'd rather not have it available in your archive. Just figured I'd try my luck asking you. Thanks!
I made it so users can’t view what’s been backed up. However, if they know your blog URL and that you’ve used the service it will still be publicly available. Also, it’s only backing up what you’ve publicly posted so privacy shouldn’t be a huge concern.
I think I can safely say that Super Meat Boy has been pirated at least 200,000 times. We are closing in on 2 million sales and assuming a 10% piracy to sales ratio does not seem unreasonable. As a forward thinking developer who exists in the present, I realize and accept that a pirated copy of…
A great read on how customer satisfaction is more important than DRM
Anonymous asked: Is your tumblr backup site no longer in use? ^^
Earlier today, NotASenator expressed his displeasure with Tumblr’s interface stating that he should be able to hide notifications for specific posts. I figured that Missing-E was already hooked into Tumblr pretty well, and from my earlier modding attempt I knew my way around the codebase, so why not try to grant NAS’s wish? Clarification: NAS stated that he shouldn’t have to install an extension to provide such basic functionality, and I agree. But why not fix it if I can? :)
Adding the options pane was rather easy, as I already dealt with that sort of thing in my last mod. This time though, I was adding an entire section and not just one small feature. The back-end code wasn’t much different, but I’m rather terrible at front-end design. I don’t have an icon and the table needs some work. Hopefully Cutlerish can deal with that :)
On the dashboard, it is really simple. “Block” has been renamed to “Block user”, and “Block notes” has been added. Clicking “block notes” will remove any notification related to that post from the page, and save it in your settings.
So there it is, a very simple mod that will hopefully make life easier for some people :) Unfortunately, I haven’t tested it enough to feel comfortable pushing this to Cutlerish yet, and I’m leaving for MAGFest in 4 hours, so this won’t be leaving my hands until Monday at the earliest :( Though, if anybody wants to test a dev build, let me know what browser you are using and I’ll send you a copy :)
EDIT: Since people seem to keep finding this post somehow (Google?), I’ve posted a follow up here.
Oh people are reblogging this again? Guess I should go make it work after all of Tumblr’s changes.
