Happy 16th anniversary for MYETV

This year marks 16 years since the birth of the MYETV and we want as many more like this; this year we decided to update the entire platform-[Platform]: [the the set of the main domain and all the subdomain of a particular website; also the computer architecture and equipment using a particular operating system] with lots of new features and update existing ones with a lot of news. We have finally achieved a stable, fast and sustainable network-[Network of Contents]: [is the channel in which owners can post their content and the audience can see the contents posted by the owners] that will be improved every year with faster speeds as we grow as well as a lightning-fast hardware infrastructure. We have already given ourselves a new European data center, already gaining in terms of speed and security of the entire platform; we’ve also updated lots of little features like the new timezone system based entirely on UTC and consequently we have added the choice of timezone both when editing the profile and when choosing the platform language; small gifts that we have already given ourselves and that we can already touch with our hands, but we still have a lot to do and update. We also decided to write the terms of service and the privacy policy in a single language (English) to then be translated by an automatic translator (in the future we could also directly use our artificial intelligence for translations), this resulted in the update and write documents faster and more understandably; if something differs between nations or continents, it will be possible to specify it globally or with new posts linked to the various documents. Like every anniversary, i’m listing all the news of this 2024 and these 16 years and also the features that we will be made available in the near future:

  • To celebrate this 16th anniversary, we’re introducing a colorful new theme: Wild: this theme is for the 16th anniversary of MYETV and is made with 3 colors green, light blue and shadows of orange.
  • Introduction of the new X (Boost) Account: the new “X (Boost) Account-[Account]: [an Account contains the personal information that is assigned to those who register and access with email and password]” can be activated or given as a gift to a network and increases the account limits such as the number of posts available per day or the upload-[Upload]: [the action by a owners of the network of sending an image or audio or video file (named as content) from the device] limits for files; an account can accumulate up to 10X in total and each increase can also be gifted from different accounts, the account that receive them will have more features unlocked. For the first phases this functionality is only available for accounts, public networks will be able to activate it in the future (with more features to unlock)
  • Out of testing for two new special accounts “Viewer” and “Publisher”
  • Introduction of the new advertising platform: the advertising platform on https://store.myetv.tv/ads has been updated and a new advertising form “external website” has been added; the cost of impressions has been decreased and a cost has been added to clicks. This platform can only be used with MYCOINS which can be purchased through the official MYETV store with a registered and verified user account-[Account]: [an Account contains the personal information that is assigned to those who register and access with email and password]
  • The network URLs have been split: the homepage for accounts will have a URL like this “myetv.tv/account/…” while the homepage for public networks will have a URL like this “myetv.tv/network/…” Accounts have more private features (such as encryption-[Encryption]: [to change electronic information or signals into a secret code (= system of letters, numbers, or symbols) that people cannot understand or use on normal equipment] of personal information) while public networks have more features aimed at the general public; this split applyes also for the subdomain feed.myetv.tv/account/...
  • From now the report can be sent also for an entire network or account and depending on the report sent, it will be checked that the network complies with the regulations of MYETV terms of services [updated]
  • We have updated the moderation platform with new tools regarding contents-[Contents]: [every content intended as text, images, audio or video], networks, accounts and reports. Moderators can now shadow-ban an entire content network-[Network of Contents]: [is the channel in which owners can post their content and the audience can see the contents posted by the owners] by making the content-[Contents]: [every content intended as text, images, audio or video] only available on the network’s homepage (also called MYETV brand protection); furthermore, the terms of service have also been updated regarding the names of the networks that may be suitable for the public.
  • Image upload (for any type of images) are now replaced with a selection of images already uploaded into MYCLOUD this will respect the account limits and requires the owner to use limits here; if the file is deleted or its location changed by MYCLOUD then it will be deleted wherever it is used. Files upload into MYCLOUD have limits and the files will be selected and used directly from the owner’s MYCLOUD who can modify them, download them or use them within the platform. This will be a small revolution that will no longer allow you to bypass the limitations of MYCLOUD.
    Before: Upload image into MYCLOUD -> Publish -> files published and deleted from MYCLOUD
    Now: Upoad image into MYCLOUD -> Select it (where required) -> image is selected for the use and it will stay into MYCLOUD untill the owner deleted it (if deleted the selected image will be deleted too where used)

  • Video upload (with encoding) and content pubblication are now inside the MYCLOUD and this will respect the account limits and requires the owner to use limits here; if the file is deleted or its location changed by MYCLOUD then it will be deleted wherever it is used. Files upload into MYCLOUD have limits and the files will be selected and used directly from the owner’s MYCLOUD who can modify them, download them or use them within the platform. This will be a small revolution that will no longer allow you to bypass the limitations of MYCLOUD.
    Before: Upload video into MYCLOUD -> Publish content -> files published and deleted from MYCLOUD

  • Added the views count of the contents for individual accounts thanks to the peer-to-peer-[Peer-To-Peer Network]: [is a network made up of many p2p keys that can communicate with each other held together by a central system that can control them] keys for both logged and unlogged users
