Updates on Inkspired, Community Guidelines, updated FAQs and video tutorials

Hey guys, it's Galo here again. 


I'm bringing you some Inkspired updates today, to catch you up with what we have been adding recently to the platform. On Inkspired we are always worrying about our readers, writers, and community in general. You speak, and we listen. And as experience rapid growth in our community, especially from Spanish-speaking people, Brasil and Europe, we need to adapt to the demands of that growth.


That's why we have updated a few sections in our platform to make it easier for you and the new users to get started on Inkspired, and keep you focused on what you actually want to do: to read and to write.


FAQs & Video tutorials

This section has been changing recently. We have updated our Frequent Questions and Answers to the current stage of Inkspired, and updated it with the most popular features we have been incorporating recently. We have also translated them into Spanish and Portuguese, which is something we have been aiming at for quite a while since our communities in those languages are as strong as ever. You can expect content more straight-forward in helping you get your tasks done.


Also we have added additional material to the section in form of video tutorials with walkthroughs, available for now only in a selected few languages: we will be adding more over time. But we need everybody's help. If you speak German, French, or Russian, and want to volunteer for creating a video tutorial, we will be more than happy!


You can access the FAQ page here.


New Community Guidelines

As our community continues to grow, we felt the need to put some rules in place, to keep Inkspired a high-quality content place, and also keep it as a safe place for our readers and also writers. Following these guidelines are part of the Terms of Use of Inkspired, and they are set of norms related to writing and publishing of original content, handling copyrighted content, and also behavior between users.


Here you can read our new Community Guidelines, available in English, Spanish and Portuguese.


Other important news and updates

We have already told you about these ones in our Inkspired Newsletter, but here is again a brief summary in case you missed out:

  • New community groups added in Spanish and Portuguese!
  • We are regularly updating our Android app, which has been having problems lately, and we have fixed most of the bugs that it had before.
  • We are receiving "Microfiction/Flash fiction" stories of up to 500 characters since we are close to releasing a new Inkspired format for publishing. You can post them in the respective community group available in your language, or submit them to jackeline@getinkspired.com. Requirements: 500 characters (not words) or less; have a title; include 3 descriptive #hashtags.
  • We made some improvements in your Pocket Library and your notification's preferences on Settings.
  • We have new categories on LGBT+, Memoir & Life Stories, and Comics.

Say Hello to Inko

Last but not least, we want to announce our new Inkspired staff member: Inko. He is a bit..., flat, as you may have noticed, but we promise he is quite charming, a passionate writer, smart and modern, and he is committed to making some cameos here and there to guide you through the Inkspired experience, apps, and platform ;)



That's all for now, folks. Happy reading and writing! :)
