Welcome everyone to this fine Friday afternoon on .win

As many of you are new to the site as a result of the purge, this thread will provide some tips on nimbly navigating and customizing your .win experience. As we have seen in the comment sections, you guys have several recommendations for site improvements with an app, additional .wins, and a functional search bar being the most common requests. We are working to address all of your requests, but since we are building and maintaining.win ourselves and not with a team of slave laborers from the designated shitting streets, we ask that you be patient with us. In the comment section of this post, please let us know of additional improvements we can make.

.win Tips:

Image posting: We have three sites that currently work very well with .win, maga.host, kekpe.pe, and Imgur. For each one of these, you want to ensure that that the image is properly embedded so it does not open a new page. To verify, look for the upside down triangle below the post title. embedded vs unembedded

  • maga.host: Simply upload your image and copy/paste the image URL as a link. If you feel inclined, use Nimble Navigator mode and add a .win watermark. Just please ensure that it does not obscure the picture or meme.

  • kekpe.pe: Upload your image from the home page. Copy and paste the direct link as seen here and submit the link.

  • Imgur: From the home page, click "New post" in the top left hand corner. Then follow instructions to upload. To ensure that the image embeds, right click on the uploaded picture and select "Copy image address" as seen here. Double check that your link begins with "i.imgur" and submit it as a link.

Video Posting: YouTube and BitChute links embed properly as long the as uploader does not disable the option. If you do not have or do not wish to create an account for either one of those sites, Streamable is a fantastic option that allows for fast and anonymous uploading. For all three of these sites, just cut and paste the video link and submit your post. A nice trick to rip Twitter videos to upload to Streamable is to place a Q before the twitter link. This automatically redirects you to to a twitter video download site. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1235944077188665344 becomes https://qtwitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1235944077188665344 and allows you to download the video with two clicks.

Dark mode: On desktop, simply select the gear icon located next to your username. This is the settings menu. Near the bottom, you will find the option to change your theme. It's not available on the mobile site right now, so you'll just have to directly access the settings URL.

Auto-expand: As the name states, this option automatically expands embedded posts so they are displayed on the page without clicking and entering the comment section on the post. You'll find this option directly below dark mode in the settings menu. If you enable this setting, please don't forget to hop into the comments and let the user know you appreciate their post or join in the discussion.

Sorting posts: On desktop, the sort options are very clearly displayed underneath the banner. Select the sort you want and you're set. On mobile, click the fire icon in the top left below the banner and choose your desired sort.

Navigating comment sections: The permalink option provides you with a URL so that you may directly link to the comment. After you have permalinked to a comment, selecting "full comment thread" displays the comment chain in which the permalinked comment is located. "all comments" works exactly as it sounds by displaying all comments contained within the post.

Viewing saved posts: As of this writing, the only way to access saved posts is to link directly to the Saved URL. This will change soon.

Sending a PM: Click on the mail icon next to your username in the top right. Select "create a message". That's it.
