What is Canary Mode?

Canary Mode is where you can receive the latest Minds updates before they are officially released. It will give you an opportunity to test features before they are released.

To opt in, click the hamburger menu and select 'Opt-in to Experiments'.

@Nick @jack -- This Is What It Looks Like When A User Makes Posts To Multiple Groups -- Only THIS Is The NewsFeed Page. (Non-Canary)

@Nick @jack @JakePassi -- I want to be able to view my Groups ('m Subb-ed to anyway) while in Canary. You see this is what happens when you remove the Group notifications. Oh, and did I recall many interactions are left unresponsive without them ... that's what you do, right? Hook people together? #No #Groups #Canary

I. A CANARY FLAW: I tried to post this in Canary "Bug Report" but Canary "Bug Report" does not allow screenshots, i.e. proof of replication! You need a slot for screenshots. II. THE CANARY INTRO-EDIT BUG: What I was trying to report was that once a post with an introduction and a graphic (or a clickthrough to an article) is posted and saved in Canary, editing the post's introduction causes the graphic/clickthrough to disappear. MY DEVICES; Chromebook, Mac Air/High Sierra/Firefox REPLICATION: Here's a screenshot of an original graphic/clickthrough that has an UNEDITED introduction. What happens to it after an EDIT of the introduction is SAVED is recorded in the first comment box: the graphic or clickthrough disappears. I have had this happen on multiple posts. The only remedy is to delete and repost.

Why is every image I post double posted in non-Canary mode? Both Firefox and Chromium. Turn off Canary, and go look.

@Nick @futureisnow -- Is anyone aware Users can't do Search within their Channel while in 'Canary'? That sucks.

@jack @Nick -- Just thought I'd remind Minds that putting up a Notice of the new Canary rollout on the NewsFeed page may be a thing to do. You know, sort of give Users a little heads-up on what they're getting into if they choose to use Canary at present after the updated Rollout & all ... unless, of course, you don't want anyone to know?

explicitWhen you view your pending scheduled post, it does not show you what time the post is scheduled for. This was a very helpful tool in the old model but it is not offered in the new look. I like the direction the new look is heading but posting content in the old view is still better than what we are offered currently. How do we get back to using the old look, turning canary off doesn't seem to work anymore.

How do i opt out of canary mode, all my pictures are super small & my banner images are ruined on my channel, go see yourself on Canary mode. Is this deliberate!?! i was in favour of beta testing new looks but not if it breaks my current look. BTW:- making feed images super small on desktop mode is a super bad idea

Reporting a bug. I'm on Desktop (Win7x64 Vivaldi browser), with Canary mode on everything posted after about 1:45am EST is invisible, my posts, other people's posts, everything. both on the Newsfeed and on my own page, posts prior to that time are visible. If Canary mode is toggled off all posts become visible again.

So, I seem to be stuck in 'Canary'. Because the Search function for Canary was sucking so much, I was rotating between 'ordinary' Minds & Canary trying to find out which was more efficient to use. Now I can't go back to "non-Canary" ... maybe you've implemented it wholly or the system hasn't quite caught up to my selections, but as you can see by the pic, I'm in Canary & it's asking if I want to "Opt-In". I've repeatedly Turned it On/Off for effect & I'm stuck on this page now.

CANARY. Wonderful changes, Minds. I however on a laptop (Chromebook, Mac Air/Firefox) have to keep leaving Canary to see the Top Whatevers or to track my blogposts' trajectory in the blogpost gallery. Could you give us laptop Canary-users a way in? Thanks as always.

I've noticed that sometimes the Minds logo in the top isn't clickable, which is kind of annoying since that's what I used to go to and or reload the main feed. I don't know what triggers it to act like that, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I'm using the brave browser and have canary enabled.

Yea, the Search Function in Canary is USELESS which kinda' it makes unusable for average use. Just thought you'd want to know. @Nick @futureisnow @jack

This version of Minds is the worst social media upgrade I've ever used? I think the canary died in the mine shaft...
