PayPal wanted me to put someone responsible for taking post down and censoring the site. I told them that AnonUp is managed by the community and we have no one directly responsible. Asked for some examples of some offending posts. They said they would get back to me.
Here is how they got back to me...
They canceled the AnonUp Paypal account and 5 other accounts I have with them for other businesses.
They are coordinating attacks. They already tried to go after our hosting.
The good news is we managed to get enough donations for me to work on a supplemental update before the bigger web3 update. Still waiting for some regulations for that but will have the supplemental up within the next 2 weeks.
The bad news is holding off on accepting any further donations.
For the ones that donated, sincerely Thank You!
For the ones that didn't, just Thank You for being here!
Together we are building something special!
Really blown away by the support. Sincerely THANK YOU.
I decided to use the donations mechanism as an opportunity to verify users. We never enabled it because it would be nightmare to check ID and just didn’t want the responsibility of databasing info like that.
PayPal has its own verification process and that is good enough for AU. Nothing besides an encrypted transaction hash and amount is stored in our DB. No identifying info.
100% Donation will go towards hosting as this is AU’s only real expense. All programming is being donated.
If donations exceed hosting expenses we will look to take thing to the next level with features.
It was never my intention to take donations and especially wouldn’t have used PayPal simply because I would expect them to deplatform AU. However we will use the opportunity for what it is
I understand wanting to be able to do something in this information war. Really appreciate the Trust. We won’t let you down Patriots.
Hi all. It seems like some found a way to donate. Thank you! It does mean a lot and gives me fuzzies. The donate feature wasn't supposed to be active. I have budgeted from my personal funds so financing for this project is secure.
I want to be clear. I am not doing this for money. I am doing this because our Social profile needs to be free of ANY company ownership.
If any collective worthy opportunity presents itself I will be sure to discuss it with the AU before anything is done. Fortunately for investors, the biz model I am going for creates no incentive to invest. I like that. leaves little competition.
We are awaiting regulations on digital assets to get some clarity on our next update. Looking into doing a supplementary update since clarity is taking longer than expected.
Really looking forwards to what's to come and thank you for being here Patriots.
Hi all isolated the issue. Our disk space is full causing all the errors from yesterday and today. Upgrade storage. The site will be annoying to use while this is being done.
Thanks for being here.
AnonUp is operational again.
If you are still having issues please log out and close the browser.
Then log back in.
Checking to see if I can speed things up now.
Getting AnonUp alerts that the site has an unstable connection. Please give me some time to see what is going on.
Your scars are proof that you have healed. 🙏
Truth Social will have its place however the world still needs a fully decentralized solution. No organization or person will be in control when completed. 100% community-driven. The only person that has been funding this project has been me however we are about to go V2. We will be launching a token to assist with future financing.
I would be upset with myself if I sold out on my mission to fix social media. No one can own it. It needs to live. With our strong community keeping the trolls away and nurturing It's been living on its own for the past 8 months. About time for the birth.
WeGo is part of the whole ecosystem. More details to come. Longtime WeGo users will be very happy.
It's comforting knowing you are always in the background. I feel like we are converging with the Trump timeline. :) We are living in exciting times. This has been, by far, the most comforting platform of all. We all love and appreciate you very much. Thanks for popping in to cheer us up this season.
All the new features are optional. Usability and speed improvements as well.
Your profile is in the digital space. It is our view that you should have the 'rights' to your content/profile. The blockchain with the use of NFT gives you proof of digital ownership.
Think of all the accounts that had such great content just to be suspended and all is gone. With NFT the power is given back to the users. Can also move your profile to compatible web 3.0 social media.
Sorry for my absence patriots. Great to feel that Vibe again. Impossible to ignore it.
New version for AnonUp will be released first Quarter 2022.
Focus: First stage of decentralization.
-MetaMask login option. (Trustwallet April 2022)
-NFT Profile Option. (Export profile rights to ETH or BSC Blockchain)
-CryptoCurrency Option. (Earn crypto off your content)
Note: I know the current version has some bugs. We will address them all in V2.
Really looking forward to the future. You all have done an amazing job as a community to fook all the trolls. It was 100% the community. This is a huge accomplishment. I also want to say Thank you for being part of all this.
