I very much understand your reasoning with this. Doesn’t alter the fact that I am disappointed As a not too happy user of Pixelfed (too much like the ‘old’…) I was hoping to find a home for my photography that I could use with WriteFreely.
To be sure, this doesn’t change anything with the long-term plans for the platform. You can still count on Snap.as not disappearing, and it’ll continue improving as planned.
All this announcement means is that you’ll still need a Write.as account to use Snap.as for the foreseeable future. I made this post simply because I’d previously promised standalone accounts by now.
A reasonable choice.
Thank you for the transparency in your products development
Thank you, Matt. Your combination of bold sustainable simplicity with elegant features underneath and transparency along the way are wondrous! I look forward to seeing what emerges … hopefully in time for photo essays of me summer adventures! Grin.
