what to do next?

@juozaspo asked me for adding description to the videos.
I have added that, you can now add description to your videos - see example.

What to do next?

I have updated our todo.txt and you can expect some of these features coming in next weeks:

- better videos player (with reposting)
- better filtering of feeds (by tags, post type)
- new audio/video post types
- sounds playlist
- list users/groups by last activity, popularity, alphabet
- show that post/comment was edited (maybe even history of posts)
- anonymous feedback form (also known as dead drop)
- disabling comments
- /all with reposts
- friends of a friends (list)
- RSS client with one click reposting to Kyselo
- some code cleanup with no visible effect
- new fancy bugs

@juozaspo - this update is for you

please leave us a comment

Until today, Kyselo was missing one important thing, which enables social networks to be really social and news websites to be those burning hellholes which they are. That both horrible and both wonderful thing is commenting. Now you can leave your comments under every post on  Kyselo (once you are logged in).

Another new thing is notification system. I am not going full facebook and invent notifications out of thin air, but you can already be notified when:

- somebody comments on your post
- somebody mentions you in the comment
- somebody starts following you
- somebody joins group you are member of

I hope these new features will help us build more live community.

You also see the notifications from your own comments on your own posts, neat, might be a bug xD

all your memes belong to us

Did you ever wanted to easily repost memes from or without manually copying image URLs, taking screenshots or doing other workarounds?

Now it's possible - just open new tab with image you want to repost and use kyselo bookmarklet to post it here.

I have already reposted this medieval shitpost and this non-fiction book cover but many other memes will come.

I can also add support for another sites - I just need some site with predictable HTML structure to let my black magic code do it's job. Let me know in the comments...

Speaking of comments - something big is coming soon, something that will change your tune... Stay tuned and maybe throw some euros in my hat to let my know that you like these updates...

make web colourful again!

Firstly I would like to thank you for all the donations. One especially make me feel proud because it contained this text:

thank you for our new home 3

Do you know what else can make you feel like at home? Nice wallpapers and colors...

There is one big difference between old and the new web and that is level of customization.

On the new internet you can only change your profile photo, maybe a cover photo. On the old internet you can go full geocities if you want to.

Famous example of this was My Space, which spawned entire generation of CSS coders. Interesting fact about it is that it was actually bug not a feature. In Kyselo custom.css is actually a feature. Now you can enable hacker mode or full neon experience.

You can write your own CSS, generate it by our brand new CSS generator 3000™ or shamelesly copy it from others.

Also I have fixed annoying bug which disabled adding YouTube videos and improved the way of resizing images in CSS

And now something completely different, the numberz:

  • we are alive for 269 days (0 years 8 months)
  • we have 146 users
  • and 42 groups
  • most active user is @gpkvt with 3070 posts
  • most active group is @memes with 235 posts
  • there are about 64 post per day
  • of these 32 are originals (no reposts)

mobile version

kyselo looks very different today isn't it?
I was always user of dumb phones. But the last one was too much dumb to use so they actually lend me a smartphone at work.
I tried use Kyselo on it and it looked awful. So I completely rewrote it to be compatible with mobile phones.
All the pages was rewritten using Bulma CSS Framework and while I was doing it I was fixing various bugs and making some improvements. It was a lot of work and I got somewhat exhausted of it.
But wait - there is more: I am working on another features - custom CSS, MP3/MP4 posting and finally commenting. Consider sending some donation to keep me working.
Also - I am taking a looooooooooooot of photos of my cat, so I created her profile on Kyselo - you can now follow her on @mnauinka.
And finally - stats:

  • we are alive for 208 days (0 years 6 months)
  • we have 144 users
  • and 40 groups
  • most active user is @gpkvt with 3036 posts
  • most active group is @memes with 197 posts
  • there are about 75 post per day
  • of these 38 are originals (no reposts)

kyselo was down

Hello all. Kyselo was down yesterday because of certificate error. It was some system bug at my webhosting and they fixed it after other users complained.

However in case it would be down again it would be nice to have some meeting point, so I created two:

both places can be used for cat/shitposting too.

Also - there is a major update on the way. So stay tuned!

Finally some stats:

  • we are alive for 197 days (0 years 6 months)
  • we have 143 users
  • and 38 groups
  • most active user is @gpkvt with 3036 posts
  • most active group is @memes with 188 posts
  • there are about 78 post per day
  • of these 39 are originals (no reposts)

100 days of shitposting

today it's 100 days after Kyselo was succesfully installed.

But it dates way longer than that:

  • back then in 2011 I found and registered an account here.
  • in 2015 I actually created first version of Kyselo, this time just on paper and later as HTML mockup.
  • in 2017 I started to write my diary. I used Soup for this purpose but  Soup was all 500s and no the stability, so I started work on a clone, which went live three days before Christmas.
  • in 2020 as part of ongoing apocalypse, was shut down. So I started Kyselo project.

Today Kyselo has small but nice community. Development somewhat stalled, but new features are still being developed. Kyselo is free to use, but there is donate button which is actually used - I spent those money in tape recorders and stuff.

Finally, some numbers:

  • we are alive for 100 days (0 years 3 months)
  • we have 141 users
  • and 36 groups
  • most active user is @gpkvt with 3028 posts
  • most active group is @memes with 142 posts
  • there are about 124 post per day
  • of these 65 are originals (no reposts)

many faces of Kyselo

Kyselo is primarily a social network, but can be used in other ways:

  • as your own personal meme storage
  • as bookmark manager (very powerful when using with tags as described in last update)
  • (in fact those were original functions of my private instance when there were no other users)
  • as personal journal/diary
  • as youtube playlist

For those last two functions I added new views of your blog/group which can be enabled on your settings tab.

And now something completely different - stats:

  • we are alive for 86 days (0 years 2 months)
  • we have 139 users
  • and 35 groups
  • most active user is @gpkvt with 3009 posts
  • most active group is @memes with 125 posts
  • there are about 137 post per day
  • of these 73 are originals (no reposts)

consume! (RSS)

in last update, I asked you for donations. After one day first donation arrived and to this day seven people donated.

One of them is Andrzej even though he has no account on Kyselo yet. He asked for RSS channel of /all. Because this is relatively easy I implemented it - /all/rss.

There are also another improvements:

  • there is new RSS button for humans and <link> tag for machines
  • you can now watch RSS feed of certain tag - e.g. things I found funny - /severak/rss?tag=funny
  • tags works also for /all, but you have to make URLs yourself - e.g.
  • THE END looks better
  • if you link to Kyselo from Facebook, link now looks better
  • and finally - stats are autogenerated

Speaking of stats, here are some:

  • we are alive for 57 days (0 years 1 months)
  • we have 136 users
  • and 34 groups
  • most active user is @gpkvt with 1814 posts
  • most active group is @cats with 109 posts
  • there are about 155 post per day
  • of these 82 are originals (no reposts)

donate button added

as you may have noticed, development of Kyselo somewhat stalled. This is because I was:

- on vacation (without internet)
- demotivated (by hot weather)
- ill and later super tired

I needed to somehow restore my motivation so I thought: What about financial motivation? (evil smile)

Now you can


cause I need a dollar baby, dollar is what I need.

All donated money will be spend on hosting fee, beer and synths (in that order). I have already spent 1016 CZK on hosting/domain fee.

Otherwise Kyselo is pretty much alive:

  • we have 134 users
  • and 34 groups
  • 102 people already posted something
  • biggest spammer is @gpkvt with 1148 posts - congratulations!
  • most active group is @memes with 100 posts
  • there is about 120 posts each day
  • with cca 50 of them being originals (no reposts)

kyselo has new home

as you probably noticed - kyselo has new home -

For now it stays on the same hosting as it was before - so you cannot post porn yet. Sorry.

I added feature requested by @chosneck - a list of all users (use this to find your friend from Soup). I also added list of followed blogs to each friends page and a list of members to each group.

I did more little changes - for example blog avatars are now displayed as 50px wide thumbnails, not in full size.

And now some numbers:

  • there are currently 113 registered users
  • each day several new people appear
  • 75 people already posted something
  • @desinteressement is biggest poster - he already posted 666 times (sic!)
  • we already have 10 groups (and several abandoned)

Yours truly @severak

PS: please, do not advertise Kyselo on Loforo, they don't like it and may ban you.

PS2: stole memes from them. :-)
