Im aware of all these things, but can you link/tell me where it was confirmed that there will be thumbnails for v2 videos.

Thanks - Dawx


Edit: Preloaded thumbnails so you can’t upload your own from your phone but most likely select a section from the video.


Nice :ok_hand:t3:


Also link Forum FAQ/ Details and add other Experts, not only @Kaden respectfully please! If you need their @'s I will search for them


lol yeah just messin with him I’ll just remove his name and put all experts if that is fine?


Sure but I am sure it will change with time so be ready to update


Will do!


Thanks! took awhile.


thanks for this, @super. i’ve pinned @kaden’s forum faq topic but i’m also going to pin this.



Thanks :+1:t3:


Mom, my forum made it into a pinned topic! Are you proud of me yet?


Good job super, this is really good :stuck_out_tongue:


god bless this thread :squid:


any idea what “reserve username if signing up, not signing in” means?


Quality Thread. Good work!


Possibly means that when the app is released it will reserve the username when you sign up if it’s not taken, like putting it on a blacklist, so it can’t be taken by another person. And the “not for signing in” means so it doesn’t keep sending that username to the blacklist as you sign in every time. That’s my guess.


thanks bud


Great job putting this together!

One thing you could add is the fact that there’s no official Twitter right now besides Dom’s.
