1 Bug and 1 Suggestion

  1. Odysee does not work as described here: How do tipping and supporting work on LBRY?

There is no “make permanent” check-box, so I guess you are just sending LBC to a creator you like… so how do you “promote” (stake) a video? The ability to promote content is the reason LBC has value, so this is quite important.

  1. From a UX perspective, I suggest you separate out “tipping” - which is permanently sending LBC to a creator you like, from “promoting” – i.e. temporarily locking LBC to boost a video for views. These are totally different things. And I would use the term “promote” to describe that second activity (“support” isn’t the right word).

This will be coming to Odysee in the future with a toggle option.

I’ve just fallen foul to this discrepancy.

I read the FAQ and intended to send a revocable tip to a content creator.

I receive a flash message suggesting an ‘rpc related error had occurred’

Upon retrying (using the back option to return to the video and clicking the support option) the selection to send as a Tip was reselected. Unknowingly I then actioned a tip. In this instance I expected a confirmation but it went through immediately.

Aside from the disconnect between the FAQ and the app what should I do to get a refund? Contact the video creator?

I’m using a OnePlus 6T phone running library on Android 10 (Oxygen OS 10.3.8)

The two actions should not be conflated in the UI in the first place as they are totally different things.
