  • There is now an ApeCoin Twitter usage request form which is initially being provided Approved AIP Authors to streamline the process for requesting tweets, retweets, and other social media activities. Our aim is to eventually make it accessible to the broader community.

  • Last week, we noticed a bug in Snapshot and alerted the team immediately. This issue has been fixed and no AIP outcomes were, or would have been, affected by the bug. Full post-mortem from the Snapshot team.

  • Discourse forum user experience improvements:

  • New ‘Vote’ link in Discourse header for easy access to Snapshot voting on both desktop and mobile.
    • First Flag Badge removed due to confusion. Continue using flags for moderation; your anonymity is assured.
    • Akismet, our spam-blocking plugin, identifies no-content spam accounts. Accounts violating our community guidelines have been removed!
