Hiveinvite update - community contributions!

in #hive10 days ago (edited)

Hiveinvite now has a new logo and is styled in the official Hive colors!


Thanks a lot to @zaxan for the graphics and @louis88 for the css work. The rewards of this post will be shared 50/50 between the two of them.

There are a few open issues

  • Invites don't get deleted after creation
  • No manual delete option
  • Translations sometimes require one or multiple reloads to be shown instead of placeholders
  • Keychain support

The first two will be fixed today probably, and I hope to quickly find the cause for number 3. After that it can be advertised as a free onboarding option without hesitation.
Keychain is a whole lot more work, but is on the top of the list for future improvements.

If you want to support me working on more infrastructure projects for Hive, consider voting for my witness!


Cool new design and attractive red color. Seems to be working fine. I can't believe I can claim 105 account at a go. But I have never seen it go all the way to 100, usually stops around half way. It is still great... no complaints.


Cool that someone tackles this!

I'm sorry, but i need to say that. I think the Logo looks pretty aggressive and this could be the wrong message on a subconscious level. Its not even the red color which is agressive and 'loud' but the spiky wings and the sting. I hope @zaxan does understand my criticism as constructive. Im not saying that it looks bad at all! Its just the subconscious details what concerned me a little. ;)

Logodesigners who know the effect of colors and shapes will understand what i mean. I recently created a Hive Logo too, but i noticed hive too late and the devs already had a logo. If you think my critics are good and you want to, you can use my Logo too. I can even change colors, font and add the Hiveinvite Text if you want. ;)

If you want to stick with your actual logo or redesign it by yourself, i have no problem at all. Just want to give you the option to make a decision based on my critics. 😘👍

Personally I like the origami and think what catches me is mainly that I want the wings to feel more connected and proportioned. The connected / flow should help with your "aggressive" take on it.

Hi - I'm thinking about doing a little sign off for my WordPress blog that invites people to claim an account on Hive using one of my free tickets, I want to give a brief blurb about Hive and then say 'please click this link' to claim a free account with a 10 HP delegation...

Is it possible to have a link to a page with just all my invites on, if I just have one link to one claim, then I'll have to keep changing it as people open accounts.

If you get what I mean!

I think what I want is the 'Create a link that is valid for multiple account creations'

Would that do it, I think combined with email verification.

Links that are valid for multiple account creations are already possible. If you add email verification it becomes visible on the /public.html though.

Ah OK - Is it possible to have a verification layer without it appearing on the public site?

I'd just like some way of preventing (or at least making it more difficult for) one person to claim all accounts while keeping my account offers exclusive to certain people.

I published an article about DTube being fully compatible with Hive a few hours ago. A few minutes later I noticed @dtube being added to @spaminator black list no absolutely no reason. I believe @spaminator is somehow controlled by @themarkymark with his Global Blacklist API (funded by the DAO).

After complaining, the unfair blacklist for the @dtube account was removed. I was told it was an accident.

But now, 1 hour later:

The post had 150+ community members upvotes, and 1 evil witness downvote has turned the article to 0 visibility.

Hive is not censored? Let me laugh...

Time to clean up your ranks from the rotten ones, Hive witnesses.
