Upon the breeze
she spread her golden hair
that in a thousand gentle knots
was turned and the sweet light
beyond all radiance burned
in eyes where now that radiance
Petrarchan conceit is a form of love poetry wherein a man's love interest is presented in hyperbole. In this the beloved is shown as paragon of beauty and virtue. The primary consideration is to appreciate beauty of mistress lavishly.
In 2016 we launched Mirakee, a creative outlet for writers and readers with in-app designing tools to upload visually appealing images. But building new features is about learning as much as it’s about making. It’s also about tough choices. The recent change of name was part of our endeavour to improve and move forward. Miraquill is an appropriate choice to portray our objectives and aspirations. It also expresses our zeal to constantly evolve as a dynamic community for writers and readers.
Over the past few months we have increased focus on our concerns to achieve a safe platform in compliance with the new IT Laws in India. Moving further in that direction, Miraquill is now going to only support images from Unsplash library. This image library provides you with an option to choose from 1 million+ high-quality images. Update your app to access this collection of images in the library. Please note that all images uploaded on the platform will be archived. What that means for you is that these images will be available on your profiles for 60 days. After that the textual content of your posts will remain intact and the images will be replaced with a background color. You can edit your posts with Unsplash images or change the background color of your post. You can also save your posts with images in your gallery if you wish to retain the images.
For the same reason, Miraquill will only support profile images imported from your Google or Facebook accounts. Update your app to refresh your profile images. This is a step against profile pictures that pose problems such as impersonation of other individuals.
These changes will be reflected with immediate effect. Please make sure to update your apps to the latest version.
Here's to a new Mirakee. A safer Mirakee.
Here's to Miraquill.
We are sorry family , we know you don't like these changes but we have to comply with the rules and take the necessary measures. Ultimately this increased focus on making Miraquill a safe haven for writers will help us create even better experiences for you in times to come. Hold our hands and let us embark on this journey together.
PS : The updated version does not remove the bio from your profiles. Please update to the latest version to access the bio.
If you are facing any issues with the new update please write to us at email@example.com. We will try to resolve ASAP!
Mirakee ads are a way to support this writing community for its further growth. They will aid us in improving the existing features and help in introducing new elements. Enhancement of this platform to promote creativity is our key attitude. #supportMirakee
Although my age here is only a mere week or so, I really appreciated and was quite overwhelmed by the abundance of spirit, support and the interaction of this thriving writers community we all came to love & live.
On this particular message, please allow me to suggest an option to restrict access for somewhat adult and erotic content that can be switched by the writer, so it would filter some or all their writings to certain Mirakee members...
Because I just found out that one of my followers is only grade 7 in school, and honestly, I don't want any minor to read or have access to some of the adult materials I wrote.
On an additional note, it has also brought up to me, that some writers who depicts gore and violence in their writings also supports this proposition on having an option to restrict access for some unintended minor readers.
Please, to anyone who reads this and agrees, it would be so kind of you to repost this, so it can reach the developers for the next update of the Mirakee app.
...and to Mirakee Developers, you are doing such a great contribution to the vast writers community, you have all our heartfelt gratitude and thanks for what you have achieved... but I personally think that we need to put into care and responsibility of exposure on some writings to a certain extent.
