bitkcor is about two things; ridiculous simplicity and freedom.

When I have to decide which features to include or exclude, that is the criteria.

Does the feature add-to or subtract from the simplicity of the site and the freedom of its users?

This is really all that matters when building a community like this. You can never be all things to all people. The best you can do is give them the tools and freedom to be themselves. Then watch the chaos unfold.

I’m actively going back through custom settings today. In that process, I noticed we never completed an Instragram oAuth2 integration. This feature adds simplicity by giving new users an option to register new accounts using credentials from the 3rd largest social platform in the world, Instagram. Not having the option only hinders bitkcor’s simplicity and user freedom.

Have at it, kids… and get at us on the Gram!!
