Ahhh, okay, that makes sense. We plan on getting a subscription, so we'll recommend quick reactions as a feature… it'd be cool if they had something kind of like the reaction stickers that some phone chat things have now.

Emoji and images? We have been considering them thanks to the way this place is set up.
We're gonna start playing with here more. We need to stick to what we said about Tumblr being a sometimes thing anyway. It really is a very nerve wracking place, but we just have trouble telling while we're there most of the time, till it's already messed us up at least some.
we understand, we've known several people who've had their ideas pushed into undesirable shapes by fans… kinda nervous about that with the Monstrocity, but at the same time want to remain open to fan works… gonna be a hard balance

Ohhh, we wish we had understood this more, because we would have been very happy to have you play with that

Thank you! We always really appreciate hearing that. Drawing fat is so good and nice UoU (it's very nice to have so many friends that encourage it now)
A reliable and handsome fellow
That's okay, it takes awhile to get the hang of. A follower is basically someone you're not watching back.

We will come up with a solution for the latter for you as we're learning.

Take your time and don't over pressure yourself to get the hang of it. <3

Blocking Undesireable Content

Tags are actually applied as classes on Soup as "tag-[name]". So, you can not only block any tag using an ad blocker such as Ad Block Plus, but also customize how posts with certain tags should look.

To do it the CSS way add something like:

.tag-[name], .tag-[name] {
display: none;

to your custom CSS as a comma separated list (like shown). This will only work while viewing site content from your own page though.

Conversely, if you wanted to highlight certain tagged posts, you could do something like:

.tag-[name] {
background-color: red;

Posting by e-mail

To post to your soup by e-mail, all you need to do is to send mail to the address in your soup's admin panel, in the section "Post by e-mail."

E-mail posting and content types

We try to be smart about the post content types we create for each e-mail you send us:

Mails with images attached to them will be converted to Image posts (one image post per image attached). Their Subject line becomes the image's body.

Mails with any other file attached will become a File post. We'll also show the mp3 player widget if you send an mp3 to your soup.

Mails with an http: link on a line of its own in the mail body become Links. The mail's Subject becomes the link title, the rest of the mail body goes in the post body.

Mails with a link to a YouTube video (or any other video site soup recognizes) on a line of its own in the mail body, it'll be converted to a Video post automatically. We use only the Subject line as the video text.

Mails whose subject starts with "quote from" become Quotes. The text after "quote from" will be used as the attribution.

Anything else becomes a text post with the optional Subject line as its title.

Posting to Soup from an iPhone

The above might sound sound very familiar if you own an iPhone and you have tried the "Share this"/"E-mail this" buttons in the various pre-installed apps. From every standard application that can share things by e-mail, you can send mail to your posting address and we'll do the right thing with it.

A word on security

The posting address you see in your soup is unique: Whoever has access to it can use it to post to your soup (but they can't log in with it, or delete posts). If you suspect that the address has fallen in the wrong hands, click the "Regenerate address" button in your admin panel, and we'll throw away the old address and create a new one for you.

You can find out who posted an image on Soup if you only have the URL of the image itself

Everytime someone posts an image on soup on twitter, you instantly go "Awwww, I wish I'd know who posted that!"
And rightly so. Well, now you can find out! Just replace the asset-N part in the URL with whatthepost, so for example if you have an URL like http://asset-4.soup.io/asset/2835/0348_44d6_390.png just replace the part before .soup.io with whatthepost like so: http://whatthepost.soup.io/asset/2835/0348_44d6_390.png - and you will be promptly redirected to the original post. But only if the original soup is in privacy mode public, otherwise you'll get an error.

If you post an image that is hosted on soup, it automatically becomes a repost of the original

Like, try posting (via your bookmarklet or just by posting it from your soup) http://asset-4.soup.io/asset/2835/0348_44d6_390.png - it will automatically become a repost of http://brystol.soup.io/post/221818769/art-of-scrolling.
That way, if you post your original content on soup, and someone links to just the image on twitter, all posts of the image on soup will be reposts of yours, and not new posts!
(note: for privacy reasons, this does not work with images that are the same but have a different path on asset-x.soup.io. It also disregards non-public soups.)
