This is a solo passion project I’ve been cooking up ever since Vine ended back in January 2017. I used to be a very avid Viner and loved creating short looping AMVs (anime music videos) for the app. I was in the middle of completing my bachelor’s degree in computer science when Vine ended, and though it had initially felt like a growing opportunity of mine was instantly taken away, in reality another one had opened up: I now had the chance to build my own creator-driven platform exactly as I saw fit, given all of the experience I had gained over years of being a content creator myself. That being said, I've never even released a website before, much less anything of this scale, so I'm super excited (and probably more anxious) to see how it will be received.

Why not use infinite scrolling (in combo with lazy loading?) to improve the UX? Now users have to click the 'load more button' every time. Worth checking out!

@mexterslab Definitely on the list of things to do! I've full-stacked everything, so the last thing to learn is a front-end JS framework since I wanted to focus on core functionality first.

Congrats on your launch and cool concept. Unfortunately, this needs to be cleaned up before I can recommend it to anyone. Some notes: - Focus on the content and remove unessential elements from the UI. The only things I care about seeing are a simple font, beautiful video images, and white space. Allow the content to breathe, start with simplicity and remove clutter. - Infinite scroll is mandatory - I shouldn't have to leave to a new page for each video to play

@brandnanthny For sure, I want to keep it minimal as well. It's nice to get feedback about usability since only 2 days ago the only person testing it was me haha. Thanks for checking us out!
Where is that "studying girl" that's in the profile pic?
