☺ All the greetings to smuttaniers! ☻

Today is 2⁸, in other words it is 256th day of the year, in other words it is the day of a computer programmer. And what can be better than to announce on this day several wonderfully new technical improvements to Freedom Porn. Some of these improvements were developed specially for our project and their intention is to make being a part of this project that much easier.

But first letʼs greet three of our newest members that have recently began submitting to the site:

Owner01 and Spermasklave have both previously contributed content to Wikimedia Commons, which has rather strict policy on any sexually explicit images. Thus their photos were reuploaded to Freedom Porn as a part of WikiMedia watch project. But even better than having reuploads from other sites is the fact that they have began directly contributing here.

Owner01 describes oneself as a “[g]uy who has had a lot of fun with a very sub woman” and he is uploading BDSM themed photos of her.

Spermasklave contributes content that will be right up the alley of anybody who likes sperm, sex slaves, and sperm together with sex slaves.

Sirens of Titan, however, did not have any photos on our site until she has uploaded “Sirens being naked”. On her user page (link below the paragraph) Sirens shares with all of us the wonderful way to get out of an awkward conversation. Go and check it out, it is worth it. And actually, it was Sirens of Titanʼs submissions and difficulties encountered to complete them that has prompted the beginning of the redesign of the upload process (see below).

The normal upload of MediaWiki is pretty straight forward, but only only if one wishes to upload random files with little information (and additionally MediaWiki is only barely suited for anarchist porn project). Submission Upload extension was developed to make image (and soon other) uploads easier. Rather than asking a submitter to manually add templates with all the attributes, this extension asks one to fill out the required fields, with the explanation of their meanings, and automatically fills out those which can be guessed.

Another problem that many have encountered on Freedom Porn was the difficulty of communication between users. Normally Talk Pages, associated with each page of the site, would be used as is. But that means that such trivial things like indentation or signing a post had to be done by hand. Luckily there is a wonderful plugin that was already done by others, called Liquid Threads. With this installed anybody who has ever used any sort of forum or discussion board would find talk pages easy to follow and contribute to. So now, if you wish, you can leave comments to any submitted content or just leave a note to another user (both things are done on the “Discussion” tab… and add a new topic or reply to an existing one).

Finally, some people have been writing to complain that it is annoying to have to return to the gallery page from an image, that it would be much better to be able to have some navigation from within an image page. This is exactly what was done with the SequentialLinks extension. To test it, go to any gallery file at http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Category:gallery_images
