    hi! i have an idea, is it okay to make a suggestion? :3
    do you think it'll be better if the embedded vimeo was the same size as the embedded youtube? i noticed vimeo vids tend to be alot smaller than youtube videos, and i feel it might be better for vimeo users if they where both the same size
    i really love this site btw! you're doing a great job ^w^

    Just wanted to drop off a complement and some odd questions...
    First, this site is so polished and nice looking. I really love it.

    My odd questions:
    How scalable is the database table? Is it a SQL server type? I'm not a programmer and I'm actually asking on behalf of someone else, but the person that wants to know will understand a pretty deep answer, even if I don't understand the question. :P

    What, in your opinion, would be the probably of an independent programmer, using the open source code, to modify it into a standard social media network, like Facebook? A simple answer will be very helpful, but if you want to give more detail that'd be great.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration and again, this site is amazing. Your team has done a great job.

      Hi! I’m glad you like the site!

      How scalable is the database table? Is it a SQL server type? I'm not a programmer and I'm actually asking on behalf of someone else, but the person that wants to know will understand a pretty deep answer, even if I don't understand the question. :P

      The database is an SQL database, yes – PostgreSQL, specifically.

      There are probably lots of better open-source starting points for a Facebook-style site. The majority of Weasyl’s code is pretty community-art-site-specific, and a lot of its approaches to things could be improved.

    Hey, I wish there a feature to filter someone’s art without having to ignore/block them

      Same =D

      It’s kind of hard to add right now, but it’s definitely a priority of mine for features to write!

    If you could look into site glitches which keep occurring such as posting submissions multiple times after declaring there is an error message would be nice. I had tried posting on your forums but it tells me it doesn't accept any new members to join and report such things.

    I have a question, do you think Weasyl will allow for HTML animations and games sometime in the near future with Flash being discontinued in favor of Animate?
