Are there any interesting developments/updates coming up for this site?

I've looked at the Gitlab repo a little bit, but most of it is above my head.

I'm just wondering what the Tildes laity should look forward to.

    I asked Deimos this 2 and a half months ago and he said this (tldr: barring FOSS, not much):

    Hey - I'm not usually reading this Discord at all, but someone mentioned this to me so I figured I'd say a few things.

    I took a full-time job again late last year, so between that and all the interviewing/etc. beforehand, that's the main reason that there hasn't been much happening on Tildes lately. The site wasn't really on a path to get to a point where it will be able to pay me something reasonable to work on it full-time, and I didn't want to do the things to try to force that to be possible. It may still happen someday, but it easily pays for all of its own expenses and such, so it's not a big deal at all (and that's why I removed the explicit goal/meter/etc., it's not really important any more.)

    Also, I'm not actively working on anything specifically for suspended/AskBibleScholars, and it's definitely not a priority. Don't mistake him mentioning it a lot for it being a priority of mine - I think it's a nice idea, but I'm not actively trying to make it happen.

        He said it was fine if someone asked a question like the one on this thread. More specifically, he said this:

        if some similar questions come up on the site it's fine to reference it (or I'd probably reply myself), but I don't really see a reason to effectively make an announcement out of it.

        (Context being I wanted to post this here as soon as he replied specifically because I had the same question suspended did.)

          I guess it is fine then.

      Dang, that's a bummer. I was looking forward to seeing the improvements Deimos had in mind when he commented on the "Tildes is pushing out the minority voice" thread back in February.

        Very. I assumed the reason nothing was happening was that Deimos was stuck in getting suspended's "subreddit-entry-inator" to work for 10 months. I personally was pretty disappointed, because, while the site works well, Deimos himself has said it's not done yet, and Tildes's main (IMO) plans and intended features like the trust system as a plan to make moderation less burdensome (other than just respecting the future mods, which unfortunately is still a pretty unique feature) are still theory.
