Six months ago, we launched our site. It was small, a few bugs here and there, but people liked it. Some of them stuck around, giving feedback and encouragement, and six months on, we’re proud to show it to you once more!
Developed solo over the course of six months, Waterfall is built from the ground up to provide a familiar, functional experience, focusing on creators and community, taking all the good bits from Tumblr and making them worth using, quickly becoming the fastest growing alternative over the last six months!
Waterfall is easy to use if you just want to blog and share neat stuff. If you’re an artist, Waterfall features a constantly evolving system to ensure that you’ll be credited for your
work. If you upload art, and someone tries to upload it later? It’s
automatically converted into a reblog of your original post. Someone
steals it anyway, or you see something that breaks the rules? Don’t worry - all
reports are manually reviewed, with an average response time so far of less than six hours from report to the content or blog being removed.
Perhaps most importantly, there’s no company behind Waterfall - it’s fully independent, with no shareholders to please. Just one guy and a couple volunteers keeping an eye on the content. This means no ads all over the place, and no decisions made to sell anything to you. Every single core feature of Waterfall is free, and will be forever, and we’ll never monetise your stuff.
The site is still in development, but we already have a ton of the most important features you could want!
Sideblogs! Want to keep content seperate? Each has their own follows and likes list. You can also send asks from them instead of your main blog!
Have a blog dedicated to a certain focus as your main that you’ve gotten bored with? It’s easy to switch your main blog to another.
Works on mobile! The browser version has very few issues on mobile, and a dedicated app is under development.
Dashboard skins! Don’t like our colour scheme? Pick a different one. More are on the way, and you’ll soon be able to create your own.
Prevent personal posts from being reblogged just by adding a simple tag (#dnr or #do not reblog)!
Blocking! The system is constantly iterated on as workarounds are found.
Worried the staff aren’t active and don’t know what’s going on? Let’s put that to rest.
A community Discord! Find blogs, report bugs, and get help directly from the staff.
Manual report reviews! Your salad won’t be flagged for nudity.
staff and development team! Reports are usually reviewed and acted on
in less than 6 hours hours, and bugs are fixed within an average of 36
hours from report to resolution. Patch notes are transparent on what’s
fixed, and the kind of reports we get are published every quarter (the
latest one is here!)
Free and no wait list!
That’s not all! The site is still in heavy development, with the following slated to be added within the next two months:
Commission marketplace! Currently being tested amongst a handful of volunteer artists, you’ll be able to use us to find customers and, optionally, protection against scammers.
Frequent Images! Have a sprite or meme you use a lot? No need to keep reuploading it, the post editor will keep it handy for you.
Comments and drafts!
Queue overhaul! Don’t just post once per hour, control it down to the minute.
Pools! Follow an entire topic instead of just a blog.
Blog Themes! Select users are trying out the beta now.
Polls! No need to link to strawpoll anymore, it’ll be built in to the site.
Like the site? A Tumblr importer will be available in a matter of days.
