Update On Progress – App for DID / OSDD Systems in Development

Update on Multiplied By One - App for DID / OSDD Systems

The Multiplied By One app for Dissociative Identity Disorder / OSDD systems is still in development by a team of volunteers. We are running the organization of the project through a Discord server, and the codes are public on GitHub.

From the time that I concept created the app and designed it, the project is over a year in the making. I love the support that we have been shown.

Here’s a few update points:

The volunteer developer team has been growing progressively. Most on the team do not have a dissociative disorder, but I’m impressed by their eagerness to learn and understand in order to create the best results possible for this community. We spent the first months figuring out the most productive and logical plan in terms of coding languages, development tools, like AWS, and we progressively figured out a system in which to lead the team.

Something that will now speed up the process is that after reaching out to the team for further organization, more of the devs are in the process of creating Github tasks for the front and backend so that everyone in this growing work has something to advance with.

As the app website was created one year ago, I have just renewed the domain and will be renewing the subscription to keep Multiplied By One on WordPress until the domain can be transferred to the app after it goes live for public use. This means that more of the funds donated to the project have been used.

I want to credit the donors for their generosity, which includes kindness from the GitHub sponsorship and the Pleds.to funding website. Emma Sunshaw of the System Speak podcast was among the donors, to which I am grateful and moved. Thank you for believing in this app project and supporting its progress!

The total funds raised so far amount to $173 CDN, (Or approx. 140 USD) which has been a huge help with both the small series of Amazon Web Services (AWS) charges and with the website and domain related renewals.

There have been so many more sign-ups recently for being notified for when the app goes live. That’s amazing! Thank you for your support. I am so eager to see this app go public and in use after so much time and energy… and love for this cause has been put into this last year.

Once the app is live, I will be sending out the notifications, broadcasting on media, and I will create a dedicated episode on the topic within my The Bag System podcast series.

If you are interested in being notified of when the app goes live, find the sign-up form at the bottom of the pages on this website. The form for following the blog is separate, so while I love that you follow the blog, I’d like to make sure you enter what you intended.

Find our Discord community – Option to Sponsor Github

Multiplied By One Community Discord

If you are receiving a notification about a new blog and are unsure why, it may be that you meant to sign up to be notified of when the app goes live, but input your email to the incorrect form. That form is now more clearly labelled.

There is now a Discord server, not only for devs, but a new one for the community who may wish to contribute in other ways, ask questions, or connect about the project. Follow this invitation to connect. The devs have a separate Discord.

The Github with the frontend and backend repositories for the app now has the ability to be sponsored. This is a concept like Patreon, but for developers, projects, or organizations. It is a safer way to donate to the project than by a basic PayPal link. The funds that sponsors provide go to an account that is specifically for Multiplied By One. If there is more given than needed on any specific month, then the money remains there, to be used only for the app at a later date. This sponsoring is not required for anyone to be able to use the app. The app will be free for use. The sponsorship option is only linked for those who have the means and the desire to contribute with financial means.

The Github sponsorship with the reward tiers list and description can be found here.

When “Multiplied By One” Goes Live

The development of the Multiplied By One app is still going forward! If you would like to receive a notification of the site going live when it launches, then you can find the contact form and send us a message that’s as simple as “Notify.”

This won’t be a sign up for regular emails or spam promotions. You would be signing up for one email that allows you to be informed, as well as a chance to start your journey with this app for DID/OSDD systems.

When Dreams Come True

An app for the DID and OSDD community has been a dream of mine. I think, it’s become yours too. I’m writing this blog to let you know that this aspiration is finally unfolding.

There is a team of developers working with me on a volunteer basis in the development of Multiplied By One! Things are advancing the way that I was beginning to think would never happen, because, for some reason, it wasn’t; until now.

The app will actually be a web app, and not a desktop, as was initially brought up. This will make it more accessible across all devices.

The app will be free to use, and without ads, though there will be an option to contribute to the hosting of the app if desired. If you can give, there is a sponsorship option on GitHub. The funds will be going to the upkeep of the website costs. I am giving my own funds to this as well.

If you have any questions to submit to an FAQ, feel welcome to send them in to my contact found on this website.

If you are a developer peeking at this website, we could use you on the team.
