dMania v0.6: Better performance and improved user onboarding

in #steem4 years ago (edited)

I have just uploaded v0.6 of dMania. The new version improves the performance, adds some basic features that were still missing, fixes some UI bugs and improves the onboarding process for new users.

Better performance

The latest version of dMania uses the new Jussi endpoint. Jussi is a caching layer for the Steem blockchain. All operations on dMania should be a lot faster now.
I also reduced the amount of posts that is initially loaded and the amount that is loaded while scrolling.

User onboarding

User onboarding on Steem isn't easy. Most people have never heard about blockchains. They know Bitcoin, but that's about it.
When you show them a website like Steemit or dMania, they think it must be some sort of scam. They just can't believe that they get paid for their posts. It's just too different from what they are used to.
Wallets, private keys, voting power, Steem Dollar, Steem Power,... There are so many things that new users have to learn. That's why user onboarding is really important for apps on Steem. We have to show new users how things work around here and teach them the basics. I try to hide all the complex Steem stuff on dMania and make it as easy to use as possible.

To get new users started I have created a FAQ page and a WTF is dMania page 😉. I also improved the sign up process and made it easier and more user friendly.

Delete and edit comments and posts

It is now possible to delete and edit comments and posts. Everything works pretty much like on Steemit. You can only delete posts and comments without any comments or upvotes. You can edit posts and comments for seven days. After that everything is immutable. Just remember when you edit a dMania post on Steemit, it becomes a Steemit post and won't be visible on dMania anymore.

Voting power slider

The new voting power slider shows how much your upvote will be worth. The voting power slider is only visible for users with more than 500 Steem Power. For users with less Steem Power, adjusting the voting power doesn't make much sense.

Support dMania

dMania supporters receive 15% of the rewards on dMania. To become a dMania supporter, you have to delegate some Steem Power to dMania. The minimum is only 5 Steem Power. By delegating Steem Power, you are lending your Steem Power to dMania. The Steem Power still belongs to you.
The dMania bot uses the collected Steem Power to upvote posts on dMania.


There are already over 50 dMania supporters.

and many more...

  1. Please make SHARE BUTTONS
  2. As soon as possible, make people being able to sign up to dmania via your interface rather than redirect / wait a week sign up process.

@cryptoctopus I am working on share buttons. Problem is dMania still runs completely on the client side. I need Server Side Rendering to make it work. dMania uses Angular and Server Side Rendering is still pretty new. I also have to switch the hosting environment. It may take some time but I will make it work for the next version.

Sign up via dMania is still not possible. I heard that they are working on sign up via SteemConnect. Not sure when it will be ready. Atm I still have to send all people to Steemit and that is kinda annoying for me and confusing for all users.

DMania is a very nice idea.... I've never come across such hilarious memes as the one I've come across on dmania... Nice work... Keep up the good work

too much memes !

I love DMania concept.

What a powerful project, thanks for the updates! My favourite part other than the fact that you are on-boarding people more easily, quickly and in an easy to use friendly manner, is the slider for upvoting that actually indicates the value fo the vote itself. GREAT IDEA!!!

Thanks again for this excellent post and namaste :)

It's a great Comment @eric-boucher

i have reste emed this post @eric-boucher

you have made very beautiful project keep on making more.

hey i've got a 32 part course for content creators over on @teamvideo if you ever want to share that out, gives newbies and seasoned people alike some steemit tips all in one place -- it's also on skillshare, udemy and dtube -!/c/teamvideo - might help with onboarding. in fact, i'll record a new episode for dmania and bolt it on the end! :)

I heard this first time. What actually is thi$?

dMania is an app on the Steem blockchain where you can post memes, funny pictures and videos. Go to and try it 😊 .

How to sign up? I tried but it says logout current account ?

If you have a Steem account there is no need to sign up. Just log in with your Steem account.

+1 for that, I have too many accounts on lots of websites,that´s great news for me !

can I post old memes?

@zombee sizin paylasimlariniz heryerde karşıma çıkıyor. Bu da sizin kaliteli icerikler yayinladiginizin bir göstergesi. Paylasimlariniz icin tesekkur ederim.

DMania is a very nice idea.Thanks again for this excellent post and namaste :)

Sharing on FB, Twitter & linkdn would be awesome:) All lovely features though. Colorful and user friendly.

wow.. I'm currently being blown by your information and this project. Thank you for your hard work and time. =)

long live dmania!

Hi, pleas vote me im new in steemit and i want to be good statmans in future 🙂

This is really very very useful project vut you ask 5 steem power to join in this ,this is very high for new commers in steemit so pls reduce it.other wise your concept is very nice.

You can post there all you want actually- I've posted there and it didn't cost me anything. But "supporter" is a distinction they've made, where some 50 or so people have given them steem to distribute to posters on dmania through a bot. If you just want to post your memes, you can go ahead an post them there!

Yes it's really a stunning project

I’ve been running the iOS 11 betas since the beginning. The early betas were awful, and I was hoping I would get back to iOS 10 speed. Unfortunately it still feels laggy. Siri in particular takes ages to activate with the Home button.

Awesome, I'm going to have to check this out.

dmania bug report with better quality.gif
@zombee, there's a bug with the voting power bar, the reward for each percentage doesn't correlate with actual voting power.
For instance 1% is supposed to give 0.13$ in my case, and instead it gives 0.21$, 2% is supposed to give 0.26$, and instead it gives 0.35$.
What do you think is causing this?
