Waterfall FAQ

Q. Is sign up free?

Yes! It always has been, and always will be. All it takes is an email address!

Q. Is there an app?

Not yet, however it is in development for both iOS and Android. No ETA, but we are aiming to have it publically available by June.

However, most features work as intended on the web browser regardless, so there’s no need to be put off and waiting until that’s released.

Q. Is NSFW content allowed?

Yes! As long as it's tagged and legal. If your blog is predominantly NSFW we ask that you set your blog to be hidden from minors via the Blog Settings page.

Q. Something in the TOS is unclear. Can you clarify?

Join the Discord - we'll be happy to answer any questions or concerns, and are happy to hear suggestions for clarifications and improvements.

Q. I registered but didn't get an email!

The server only sends out so many per minute, so it may take a while. Additionally, many services are currently sending them to spam. Don't worry, you can use the site without verifying for now.

Q. The link in the email didn't work!

Try resending - but be sure to only do it once. Don't worry, you can use the site without verifying for now.

Q. I’m receiving duplicate emails!

Known issue, we’re working on it.

Q. I tried to register but it said it doesn't look like a valid email.

Check you didn't accidentally put a space at the start or end.

Q. Where can I change my account details?

Clicking ‘Settings’ in the navigation bar, ‘User Settings’ in the dropdown, and then the tab ‘Account Settings’ takes you to the page where you can change your email and password.

Q. Can I delete my account?

Yes - head to User Settings and hit delete account. This action is not reversible.

Q. Where can I change my URL/blog colour/NSFW/search setting/avatar?

In the ‘Settings’ dropdown menu, click ‘Blog Settings’. It'll take you to the page where you can do this for your currently active blog.

Q. How do I create a new side blog?

On the ‘Blog Settings’ page, there is a sidebar listing your current blogs, and beneath them ‘Add another’. Clicking this will take you to a new page where you can create your new blog.

Currently, you can own 3 blogs at once. After that, extra slots can be bought for $1 each.

Q. How do I switch my currently active blog?

In the blogs dropdown, click the blog you want to switch to. Easy!

Q. I switched blogs and now there's nothing on my dashboard!

Each blog has its own following and likes list. To see stuff from a person on multiple blogs, just follow them again! A dashboard that features posts from everyone followed across all blogs is coming soon.

Q. I get an error about file types when uploading an image?

Please make sure the file is a .JPG or .PNG.

Q. How do I make pages?

Head to Blog Settings, and click the pages tab.

Q. What's the difference between image and art posts?

Art posts are for drawings or paintings you've made yourself, and have special protections in place to prevent other users reposting it. Image posts are for anything else. Art posts will be upgraded to support writing soon.

Q. What counts as NSFW content?

The way we define it is as ‘anything that would get you hauled in front of HR at work’, rather than only sexually explicit content. This does include artistic nudity and gory artwork, therefore anything in these categories must be tagged.

Q. How do I report a user or post?

At the bottom of each page, ‘report content’ will take you to a page where you can link the post ID and/or URL.

Q. I have another question!

Feel free to join our Discord, or throw an ask at the @ask-staff blog and we’ll get to it as soon as we can.

Q. I want to support the development of the site with a donation!

Thank you! It means a lot to us. Right now the best way to donate to us directly is by buying blog slots, however we have a paid subscription feature on the way that will give your blogs extra features - so watch out for that!
