Salzburg is a bit far from Vienna, so I think I can live without a shirt until it's convenient. Prioritize the important stuff and keep up the good work! Soup has come a long way since the times of way-too-frequent 50x.

@testkitchen Judging from the order form, Soup Up appears to be bound to a Soup, not an account. I'd expect to see the pig icon when I'm not in my friends feed or the Soup I paid for so I could buy Soup Up for those other accounts (if I wanted to do that in a theoretical scenario).

Also, the naming is a bit inconsistent, with the order forms calling it Soup Pro.

One more little thing and I'll stop complaining: The symbol in front of "Up" (●) appears as a dot to me. Is it supposed to look like that, or is just my font messed up? If it's a dot, you should probably put it in the center of the line to avoid upsetting people's OCD (or pick a different symbol). As you can see in the screenshot, it's slightly below the vertical center of the line.

I like how transparent the pricing scheme is, and that there is no financial disadvantage for non-subscription customers. Lifetime subscriptions may be a bit problematic, though, since they don't provide recurring income. That's probably why you limited those.

Anyway, in case mortality is abolished during my lifetime, I intend to use every single month of Infinite. And did I hear something about a T-shirt?


P.S: The call-to-action in the heading is just awesome. In this day and age, we need more of that honesty.

Why don't we just meet on IRC instead of reinventing the wheel with yet another chat application?

Sorry for the late response, I took some time to think about it.

Following your argument, the extraordinary status of the NSFW flag makes perfect sense, especially concerning imports. Additional tag-based filtering* might still come in handy for users who want to avoid certain types of content without un-following** a whole soup. It would be sufficient for filters to apply to aggregated feeds (friends, everyone, FoF...).

Example: Soup A follows Soup B. A hates anime, so they don't want to see content like this posted by B, but still see the perfectly fine porn B collects in their seemingly abundant free time.

Of course, all of this only works properly if the tags are somewhat harmonized site-wide, which can be accomplished with three things:
  • Tag input auto-completion
  • Tag inheritace for reposts (ideally retroactively all the way back to the introduction of tags)
  • Harmonization through synonyms
Essentially, it's necessary to harmonize old data, and ensure through input assistance and synonyms that the community introduces new data in a cleanly tagged manner.

Beyond vastly better organization of individual Soups, this opens the door for making search that actually works for non-textual posts, and can give you guys better insight on what's trending, how to advertise, and possibly how to monetize better.

Next step would be attribute extraction and autotagging, but let's not get ahead of ourselves...

Anyway, of course I have only seen the software from the outside, so I can't really pass judgement on what might work, and what would cause too much of a performance toll. And in the end, this is just one person's opinion - one that could be entirely different from what is good for the community as a whole.

By the way, and API would be nice :) . Scraping meta data from the HTML provided by /since/<timestamp> takes way too long, and burdens Soup's bandwidth unnecessarily. Also, Markdown support?

Enough requests for today! Users are a pain in the ass.

*) Filtering posts based on tags on a database level might be in fact a performance issue, depending on what technology is used and how the database is designed. It would probably be sufficient to perform filtering purely on the client side, which would also allow for instant toggling and configuration of filters.

**) I just noticed that the term "stalker" was abolished in my absence ;_;. Too bad, that was one of those things that make Soup special.

I'm glad to see that someone can use this little hack :) . Seeing that your soup has a white background, you might be happier with this version of the cover image.

You also address an interesting point concerning what people might consider NSFW in their respective environments. We could solve this easier if Soup didn't treat tags as unloved stepchildren. If tags had been more standardized from the beginning (for instance with the help of input assistance/suggestions), and would be included in reposts automatically, things could be a lot more customizable.

Tagged posts already contain tag-* CSS classes (at least in the original Soup), so most of the work could be accomplished in CSS alone - if we had repostable standardized tags. Maybe @testkitchen has some plans already to overhaul tags.

Soup is rolling out a new feature that allows per-post NSFW flags. Currently, you can switch between showing all NSFW posts or none. The latter hides that content entirely.

If you still want to pick and choose, which NSFW content to display, this CSS is the thing for you. NSFW posts are replaced with a warning sign and can be viewed by hovering over it with the mouse. Basic stuff.

I flagged this post as NSFW so you can see it in action.

.f_nsfw {
  background-image: url('http://asset-0.soup.io/asset/7963/0989_0f69.png');
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-position: 115px 50%;
  transition: background-image .3s;
}

.f_nsfw:hover {
  background-position: initial;
  background-image: none;
}

.f_nsfw > * {
  opacity: 0;
  transition: opacity .3s;
}

.f_nsfw:hover > * {
  opacity: 1;
}

Replace the URL with whatever graphic you like (XCF for GIMP). Consider the graphic and CSS public domain, so feel free to improve them.

Note that this only works for @testkitchen members at this time! After joining, it might take some time for the new features to be available to you.

You can find out who posted an image on Soup if you only have the URL of the image itself

Everytime someone posts an image on soup on twitter, you instantly go "Awwww, I wish I'd know who posted that!"
And rightly so. Well, now you can find out! Just replace the asset-N part in the URL with whatthepost, so for example if you have an URL like http://asset-4.soup.io/asset/2835/0348_44d6_390.png just replace the part before .soup.io with whatthepost like so: http://whatthepost.soup.io/asset/2835/0348_44d6_390.png - and you will be promptly redirected to the original post. But only if the original soup is in privacy mode public, otherwise you'll get an error.

I don't think @kitchen cares anymore, not even about soup.me. The latter has an expired SSL certificate - how little can you care that you don't even renew that? Also, it never left the invite-only stage. I'd appreciate some clarity (i.e. do it properly or shut it down). Anyway, godspeed! Maybe I shall join you soon.

Pro-tip: Reacting directly to someone's post or addressing them by prefixing their username with an '@' symbol (like @derschlaefer)makes it easier for them to notice you ;)

Since I am very confident in my soup skills, you can be assured that I repost precisely what I intend to. Still, you have a valid point, and one might consider this ambiguity a flaw of soup.

Just a general piece of advice: If you change the URL, so that the filename looks like XXXX_XXXX.jpeg instead of XXXX_XXXX_xxx.jpeg, you get the original resolution.

But of course, nothing beats adding a source link to a high-res source.

Or lurk other (social) media sites' areas for new content/break your F5 key using 4chan and repost your best findings on soup, naturally considering the tastes of your friends/stalkers.

Of course this doesn't work if there isn't a small base of friends/stalkers already, so make sure to addict some oblivious friends to soup, so they promote your stuff without realizing it.

Sounds nasty, but I'm pretty sure many people have been doing it without noticing.
