Cool random post finder from new dApp/project "kolony"

in STEMGeeks β€’ 2 years ago (edited)

I was digging through the different dApps at the https://hiveprojects.io/ website(i like to browse it from time to time-i still really want a way to upload mp3sπŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“) and there was a noticeable number of new projects that i didn't notice last time i checked, which is good news!

One that caught my eye was called https://kolony.org/ . Billed as a "minimal text based" front end, it was rather unassuming. But then, bam!... what is this "random" button? https://kolony.org/random

Sure seems to pull up different pages each time, no idea how random it is, or if its just newish posts or archives or what, but still cool- something to keep you on your toes looking for something new.

There is also a button to check the "introduce yourself" tag.

So, if you like to keep an eye on all the "fresh meat" there's a new method for ya! It definitely shows the potential to access different topics/tags from one location.

Since there really arent that many posts to hive and its fairly easy to sift through, i also like to check the "new posts" feed on peakd and just kinda browse through all the stuff that is pouring in: https://peakd.com/explore/created ..... "kind of" random

I sort it by recent instead of HOT then i can check out all types of posts from people i dont know and communities i've never heard of! Its always neat to discover new posts and people and topics...Hive is very interesting, we can only wonder what the future will bring!

Are there any cool dApps or projects that you are getting excited about?

Like i said before, hive seems to be really lacking a way (that i know) to upload mp3s/audio files (maybe you are the one to tell me what i'm missing πŸ˜‰)

There was a cool one called dsound but it went MIA unfortunately. I welcome all the new dApps and projects, its all great news in my opinion...i mean theres a hypnotism community - i'm getting random hypno tokens now-WHAT COULD BE MORE RANDOM THAN THAT? ?!!

hit that random button, my friend! !

Can't believe I missed this before. Thanks for checking out Kolony. I appreciate the feedback about the Random post feature. I may need to add that back!

Ha , it's easy for things to get buried here!

Love the random post feature!

I always wanted to see a hive randomiser, but it would give you a list of several random topics, then you could explore from there...almost like that "stumble upon" website that we as pretty cool

Just some random free ideas!

Thanks for hollering!

I came back to let you know that the random button is back! https://kolony.org/random

Amazing thanks!

Random photo would be another interesting idea

Unfortunately, I'm not s developer by any stretch...but I have good ideas... Now I just need money then I could put my ideas to work!

Keep up the good work

Nice! Love your reply! ok so, since I deleted the random button from Kolony, I can offer an alternative. This other app hosted I have hosted on GitHub has similar functionality. https://hiveuprss.github.io/randomhive/

I remembered I also love the random post feature. I'll add it to the Kolony to-do list. I found your post because I've been actively rebuilding Kolony and making it more usable.
