So, what’s new?

  • Posts/Comments can now be viewed separately on user profiles.
  • Conversations/Messaging always require filling out a captcha field now, they are also unique per conversation so there are no issues with opening multiple messages and the captcha becoming invalidated.
  • You are now automatically unsubscribed from subs you are banned from, simply open said sub for this to occur if you are stuck subscribed to a sub already.
  • When banned from a subdread, you can now message the moderators still.
  • Fixed some issues with PGP key verification and error handling.
  • You can now cross post threads to any public subdread you are subscribed to.
  • PM spam should now be extremely minimal due to spam detection changes.
  • Captcha images are now slightly more complex.
  • 3 character searches are now possible and search has been slightly improved, the next update should completely remove irellevant results for partial matches.
  • Favicon has been fixed and should still be visible when DDOS captcha page is enabled.
  • Pop out “Login anywhere” has been added, this has a fixed captcha until a failed login attempt so that new captcha images aren’t generated on every page load. This will reduce the need to load a separate page during high load just so that you can login.
  • DDOS captcha has been disabled for now.
  • You can now delete your account from your account settings page, this is permanent and we will not be able to recover your account. Your content will still remain unless deleted beforehand, but will not be linked to the original username at all.
  • When users are banned, their PMs will now be immediately purged.
  • Services and Onion list pages have now been removed as they are irellevant and unused. Onion list replacement is on the way shortly.
  • Notifications for multi-page comments have now been fixed and should correctly link to the location of said comment. This will still be incorrect when the comment is linked to from profiles etc, partial fix for this is also on the way.
  • 1 year club trophy added to profiles older than 1 year. More trophies to be added soon.
  • The JavaScript warning message should now show correctly, and will hopefully not flash up intermittently for users with JS disabled.
  • New API updates integrated, more info for this shortly.
  • Night mode has been added FINALLY, you can now give your eyes a rest when using Dread. It can be toggled via the homepage sidebar or from the website footer.

  • You can access Dread at the main onion address: dreadditevelidot.onion.
