Site News

We now have a news feature! Changelogs will go here for the foreseeable future instead of the #constellation channel on the Glowfic Discord.

Release 2019-06-04
New features

  • We now have site News, which can be accessed from the bottom menu bar. Site releases will be announced here, and site users will have an Unread News notification available.

  • User accounts can now be deactivated.


  • Times Used on the icon view page will no longer count uses in posts you cannot see.
  • The text on the Terms of Service interstitial button has been rephrased to read more naturally.
  • Posts will no longer fail to save when adding an author who already has the cameo role in that continuity.
  • Tag info pages will not crash.
  • Usernames are correctly escaped on the Daily Report.
  • Reply search page renders users without errors.
  • Site messages are no longer filtered from your inbox.
