Hey guys,
It's been over 2 weeks since our last update change list, and we figured we'd keep you guys posted on what we've been working on.

The major things we've added are:
❥ Email System for notification and password reset
❥ User Settings for notification preferences
❥ Migration to AWS RDS-PSQL for data storage
❥ Migration to AWS S3 for file storage
❥ Comment minimization

The minor things we added are:
❥ Favicon
❥ Footer
❥ Modified edit and delete system
❥ Focused comment view
❥ Various style changes
❥ Pagination for post list

The things we lost:
❥ Image reorientation and resize due to the migration to S3. Can fix this by adding a Lambda.

The things we scrapped:
❥ Follow System
❥ Draft Posts/Preview
❥ Tags for searching posts
❥ Updated Post list in Profile

Potential Future Ideas:
❥ Optimization on loading comments and number of comments (contributes to like 40-50% of load time)
❥ Notification bell to show number of notifications since last visit
❥ Show user bio when hovering cursor over username
❥ Badges for certain achievements i.e. [o]jacob, where [o] is a badge for owners. [18.+] for users who made an account when the site was only accessible by IP.
❥ Style/UI improvements

That's pretty much it for this update. Also this might be the last major update for a while because I want to work on other stuff, but I'll still be posting here ofc as postpourri is my main social media.
And thank you guys for all of the feedback you've given us, and please feel free to leave any more suggestions in the comments.

Best.
