Waivio update: Mute users, hide posts and more


waiviolabs91.183 years agoWaivio3 min read

As Waivio prepares to roll out web hosting services, some administrative tools are being released.

Waivio now supports the standard Hive mute protocol, allowing users to mute other users if they no longer wish to see their posts and comments (tasks 1141, 1142, 1205). The mute function can be engaged on user profiles.


In the future, if a website moderator mutes a user, their posts and comments will no longer be visible to all visitors and users on this site.

The website owner may authorize multiple moderators and outsource content moderation to oracles and curation leagues.

Hide posts and comments

Waivio now allows users to hide posts and comments (tasks 1033, 1034). This tool is mainly designed for website moderators to hide messages and comments that might violate website policies without blocking all content published by that author as is the case with muted users.


Sponsor rewards in posts

Users can now see the amount of liquid rewards paid for the post by a sponsor (task 962). This payment is now included in the total post payout amount.


Widget for referrals

Referral partners can now integrate Waivio rewards directly into their websites using a widget (Referrals/Instructions) and collect referral commissions from new users (for a period of 90 days) and existing users (for 5 days). Tasks 1120, 1128, 1129.


GitHub task management

Waivio's development team is now using open GitHub for ongoing task management. Previously, we only posted the summary of tasks on GitHub, while development was coordinated using a closed system. Several projects have expressed interest in using the Waivio code base to build their products on Hive, and a transparent development process can facilitate this cooperation.


Waivio Labs will be using GitHub Wiki to publish detailed documentation.

Traditional companies try to protect their intellectual property to gain a competitive advantage. But Waivio's approach is very different. We believe that by giving full access to our code, our users and our knowledge base (accumulated and shared via the Hive blockchain), together we can achieve scale that we can't achieve on our own.

This is Business 3.0, it is designed for rapid, permissionless scaling and innovation.

Other updates:

  1. Profile / Wallet - exclude transfers to self from the report (960);
  2. Flagging posts - allow users to select the power for their downvotes (1015);
  3. News feed in objects - should be visible if button is at the top (1107);
  4. Fraud prevention - display reference codes on cases (1110);
  5. Display rewards cards to anonymous visitors as well (1119).

Bug fixes and minor updates:

Tasks: 955, 993, 1017, 1018, 1051, 1058, 1094, 1106, 1118, 1124, 1125, 1127, 1134, 1135, 1136, 1138, 1139, 1140, 1143, 1144, 1145, 1146, 1148, 1149, 1151, 1152, 1153, 1154, 1155, 1158, 1161, 1162, 1164, 1165, 1166, 1167, 1168, 1169, 1174, 1175, 1176, 1179, 1182, 1184, 1188, 1189, 1199
