Loading errors and other suggestions

dom , before i start , i say all this with love and have nothing but respect for what you have done so far for us in the byte community , but these need to be stated , if the byte community wants to keep living on . I have been on byte more than the average user within the last week and have came across many bugs , first off the BIGGEST one is the app disconnects every 10 mins or less , completely wont load the pages or anything and before you say “oh tuck it’s your internet” no it’s not my internet is completely fine and can run test with pictures if anyone would like . Next , every so often some post will get a greenish picture over the post and completely override the users content (will provide picture if needed) . Another, this isn’t really an error but more a suggestion, this app needs a tutorial for new users (suggested by @cark) there’s has been countless new people joining that have asked myself or others , or created a post and stated “how does this work” “what do i do” “this app confuses me” even though i don’t understand how they wouldn’t understand byte , not all minds think the same . As well as being able to invert your profile color picture , i guarantee 90% of the community doesn’t know you can do that . There may be a few more i’ve encountered but just can’t think of at the moment , will add later on if the case . Just figured you should know and get on these asap for not only our sake , but for the apps itself . Again thank you for everything so far and i can’t wait to see what the future holds for byte !:heart:

Hi, when you say “the app disconnects every 10 mins or less” do you mean that it freezes up and won’t load anything when you try to refresh a page?

If you can attach a screen capture of the greenish picture you described, that would be helpful.

I agree a tutorial of some kind would be good, there are some things about the app that are unconventional and different from the way Vine worked.

I really like the idea of a tutorial of some kind, categories, ghost mode, stars etc. (could maybe do with it’s own topic)

I think the Byte account that every new user sees when they first log in should contain a bunch of tutorial bytes explaining the main features of the app. What would be even cooler is if each of these videos was done by a different beta tester. I volunteer to do at least one!

and yes , the app just sits and has a loading wheel on top of the post and when i refresh aswell it just won’t load back onto the server until i completely close app and restart . lmk if need anything else and yes , the tutorial on an account would be a great
idea i think ! thanks for contacting as always

also , i just remembered and got this error again , which has been the BIGGEST error yet , it repeatedly says can’t “load post” or “can’t load likes” or “can’t load profile” etc , if it happens again i will get a screenshot but that issue i would definitely
say it’s the biggest

thanks for the suggestions and reports. looking into the loading error and the rate limiting issue (can’t load likes, etc). we’ve never seen the green thing so that’s interesting. what kind of phone do you have and what operating system? I’ve renamed your topic since it was sort of clickbaity. we read everything so no need for that :slight_smile:

i have a iPhone 7 on ios 13.2 , and tbh i really haven’t got the green screen much other than yesterday , but it was a bad error , so idk what that is about , and as for the title i can totally agree with you on that , i was just frustrated from legit having
to stop using the app for a while bc it couldn’t even load anything for 2 days on and off . Other than that no other issues i can think of right now , but will of course keep you updated , thanks !

also the absurd amount of porn or just really revealing content , i’m sure your already aware , but just throwing that out , can really make a lot of people not want to be on the app , or even parents not allow the kids to get on , if they are aware of what
is being shared on some pages .

lastly (this goes with the porn) , i would say to please check the app for people who are

doing #byteafterdark , it’s legit formed a whole community of older people who are legit “flashing” there private parts in anyway , now i’m not no lawyer or anything , but if a older gentleman or even woman was to flash a kid in public , i would think that’s
a pretty big deal , and i would hope you and your team are on the same page with me on that . Now that is basically what is happening here , we have little kids who are or even just underage kids or even just people who DO NOT want to see this , and should
result in an immediate ban no matter who they are , i have multiple screenshots and can get more if you would like of these accounts and they should really be put down because they are giving this app a very bad rep for new users .

well i’m back , woke up today , liked some post from the homies , went back to there page and seen byte had automatically unliked every post i liked . Not sure if you all tried to fix like4like or whatever , but this is very annoying and if it’s intentional
i will definitely say this is another thing drawing me away , i hope it can be fixed , and once again thanks guys .

update , i got off the app for about 5 hours ^ after that happened yesterday , when i got back on it seemed to be fixed and all good for the time being , now as i type this the error has encountered again , and as i said the “homies” i stated above are both randoms and people i know and follow , it really sucks i can’t like post bc it makes me wonder if others can’t like mine aswell , i’m just gonna keep whoever reading updated on this post every time an error occurs , unless i’m getting annoying than by all means lmk and i’ll stop complaining , just want to help and get these fixed asap thanks !
