Hello everyone! Here with a platform update: A tiny pre-alpha version of BobaBoard was launched on 6/9, and the third newsletter, detailing the precious baby’s first encounter with a small test group of stranger. has been sent out! You can also read the update here: https://www.bobaboard.com/blog/development-logs-3/
(Someone called it “the funniest thing I’ve read all week”. Not making promises, but I believe it’s worth a click-through!)
Also, here's an example of a two-users thread. As you can see, I can see my identity but not the other person’s. If me and that person were friends, we’d be able to recognize each other across the website!
It is with Great..... "Pride".... that I announce BobaBoard's 4/20 event: the "Dress Your Fave as The Onceler" Donation Drive.

Hello! Here I am with the customary Monday update, posted on Tuesday on Twitter and then here on... Friday.
I've created a demo of the posting interface. It's very similar to the Tumblr one, and (as you will see) made to be part of a more threaded environment than modern socials.
A lot of bells and whistles are missing, and I hope to get to implement more and more post types as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, feel free to play with it and leave feedback at https://test.boba.social/!
Of course, you'll notice there's no tags. Fret not, I just haven't implemented them yet!
While they're fairly high up my list, I'm working to just fix as many bugs as I (reasonably) can on this bare-bones implementation so I can have you play with it ASAP. When? Well...
...as soon as I'm done with all the orange and yellow TO-DOs. Which, I hope, will be in time for the next it's-1-am-but-this-still-counts Monday Update.
See You Then!
Next up, comments!
"...but why two types of answers?", you wonder.
Well, because sometimes you need to type a 1k fill and sometimes you just need to ask "so, how much water should these sports be played in exactly?"
I've been working on the UI implementation of threads.
Currently the only type of posts are "text posts", which are roughly based on Tumblr's OG ones.
(Because you don't have to hire a UX designer if you just c-- I mean, because why change what's already perfect?)
