Thank you, Emma!!

Submitted by hollyhoppet in Postmill

After thefempire.org finally kicked the bucket I've been using Postmill on its predecessor, jstpst, and we all really like the software! It's easy to work with and waaaay less bloated than reddit.

I've been making modifications on my own fork of the project and really appreciate how clear a lot of your code is to follow, despite never having never worked with twig or symfony. (The modifications are primarily cosmetic and to handle my deployment process to heroku.)

So yeah, thanks again for Postmill, we really like it and it has enabled our small community to thrive again.

Absolutely. If you'd like access to my fork I'll add you on gitlab. I just have it private to protect myself lol.

I plan on doing an s3 integration for thumbnails so if you'd like I can figure out how to make it togglable and pull request-able and put one in if I ever get to it. Heroku is great and cheap but it uses an ephemeral file system meaning files don't stick around, so we get thumbnails going randomly missing after a certain amount of time.

K, you have access.

Also, I dunno if I'll ever actually get to the s3 thing but if I do I'll give you a holler lol.

I don't think I can overstate just how much postmill saved our community, and how excited we are to use it. Thank you so much Emma!!

What happened to thefempire's old site?

We're having severe technical issues and it's currently inaccessible. We hope to get it back up, not to post there again but to grab all the history of stuff from it.

Yeah, I suspect that old reddit code, or some of the modifications made to it for the fempire, finally collapsed under the weight of the database or something. It's really hard to tell. Even if we had fixed it I wouldn't want to have worked on reddit code lmbo. A fresh start is pretty nice especially since we've slowly realigned over the years to be mainly a chill place to post.

It's great to have people other than emma working to improve the code finally.
