This week’s update covers mostly minor improvements while we continue working on the upcoming “Video view” UI theme.

BitTubers.com revision: 0.013

  • Sharing XP cost feature implemented. This is necessary for “share spam” mitigation to prevent users saturating others’ notifications with irrelevant shares. It now costs 1 XP to share to your connections and the square root of the member count to share to groups. For example, sharing to a group with 100 members will cost 10 XP, to a group with 1000 members will cost 32 XP, and so on. There is an artificial limit at 1M members (1000 XP).

  • Improved the user matching logic for suggesting users.
  • Work continues to deliver the new “Video view” mode, the Real-Life Referral system, and the YouTube auto embedding features. A sneak peek (note, the end result may differ):
