The Ello development team has hit a bit of a stride after the last 2 weeks of madness. We've been busy fixing bugs , building new features and stabilizing Ello so we can start letting in more users. There's currently a massive waiting list of people who want to join the party - it'll be exciting as they make their way in
You may have noticed that you now have the ability to Block or Mute a user if you find them to be less-than-savory We're working on refining this a bit further, but we're excited about this great first step.
We've cleaned up most of the spammy following activity that was happening along with the influx of users, and we're working on ways to make our email communications "smarter". This will come in form of a Notification Center and better email delivery mechanisms. As for right now, you have new email preferences on your Settings page
Expect lots of additional improvements this week - there's a ton in the works right now. I'll announce as we release the goodness
Finally, please know that your opinions and feedback matter. The more we hear about a certain feature/bug/idea, the more likely we are to respond to it. We want to make Ello the best Ello it can be when it grows up
