Anonymous asked: Hello, Steve. Just stopped by to ask how you're doing: how are you? I hope everything is going well for you. Also, thank you for being wonderful. x :)
Doing well, thanks. Working late.
Anonymous asked: Steve we should be able to edit quotes in case you make a silly grammar or spelling mistake, also not anyone can edit the quote only you can once you log on, and perhaps in the first 30 minutes or so, if you get what i mean?
yep - my thoughts exactly
Anonymous asked: will there ever be a chance to change your username?
Maybe. Someday. For $5.
Anonymous asked: How do you get the format of other quotes by other people on the new witty?
Visit the quote’s page by clicking on the comment button. On that page you’ll see a “get code” button.
Anonymous asked: (I'm the same anon who told you about my notification problem ) I either get a notification, or I don't get it at all. It's as if I had already opened the notifications when I haven't. Okay, like, I could make a quote or post a comment on day, and the next day or a few days later I don't have the red notification. Instead I have to go to my notifications list and I see all these different notifications that I don't remember getting. Does this make sense?
It’s probably a bug. Sometimes the notification counts get lost because they are stored in memory, not in a database.
Anonymous asked: you should make it possible to search multiple tags at once. Like, if you wanted to look at quotes with the tags "funny" and "pokemon" at once, so you could look at pokemon jokes, you could.
Yes I should do that. I’ve already thought about it — I imaging you’d be able to subscribe to tags and have a custom feed of quotes with those tags. Sort of like subscribing to subreddits on the reddit.com web page. It’s CPU intensive - that’s why I haven’t yet.
Anonymous asked: Hi Steve, How many people use Witty frequently to be considered normal visitors to the site?
I don’t know exactly what you mean by “normal visitors”, but according to Google Analytics, Witty had more than 4 million unique visitors in the last 12 months. Two thirds of them were returning visitors.
Anonymous asked: How do you create a border for the format?
You can do something like
<div style=”border:solid 5px #f00;”> your quote here </div>

All users are created equal.
Anonymous asked: Hi, Whenever I make a format in Word using fades and different fonts etc, and copy&paste into the Witty editor, it always changes it to the normal plain formatting and I've also tried doing it with 'Paste from Word' button but that also doesn't work, what should I do?
At some point about a year ago, the “copy from Word” button stopped working. I’m not sure if it’s something that changed in Word or with the editor. I didn’t disable that so I think there is something in Word that changed. It might also differ between Macs and PCs. I never made quotes in Word, I always started in Witty, so I’m not sure how to even reproduce the old behavior.
