Dumb question. How to crosspost?

@Gordon_Freeman There isn't a crosspost button, but if two threads are similar, they'll show as crossposts of each other. I'm not sure exactly what the criteria are, but from what I can gather, two link threads will show as crossposts on Kbin if they have the same link. Otherwise, they need the same title (and maybe the same photo?).

@ThatOneKirbyMain2568 Thanks, I saw multiple threads with the "crosspost" below and was wondering how to do it since I didn't dound the button. It's cool it's done automatically

@ernest -- As requested by RTR#32, I got an error upvoting a thread.

URL when error was shown: https://kbin.social/ef/678410?choice=1

Let me know if there's any other details you need.

@ernest I tried to upvote this post and got an error. P.S. This happened just a few minutes ago.
Edit: I tried it again and it seems fixed.

Anyone else getting errors when trying to upvote a thread?

@ThatOneKirbyMain2568@kbin.social avatar

@Damaskox I get them every now and then trying to upvote, downvote, or boost something, but it's extremely random. Usually, I find that going to the activity tab and upvoting from there helps

Yes I do, just like kbin seems to forget my login often. Looks to me like it needs to reminded you're logged in and therefore can up/downvote without errors.

Can I see which users have subscribed to a magazine? (The ones I've created at least)

@jwr1@kbin.social avatar

@Damaskox I don't think that's possible, especially considering users can hide their subscriptions in their profile.

just learned that Font Awesome exists and now I'm spamming it on everything lol

Another update to my userstyle idkbin (now at! The "new comment" marker recently added by Ernest is now stylized by idkbin (mainly to work with rounded edges), and a bug with borders has been fixed.

EDIT: Typo.

What rules does kbin have? Like, for posting content.
I tried to google info but didn't find anything.

I have a magazine that concerns morbid curiosity so I'm wondering, where's the line 🤔 (The magazine is K18 already)

@Damaskox All I could find for instance rules for kbin.social is "Harassment, hate speech, or any other form of harmful behavior will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to remove any content or user that violates these guidelines." (from the tos)

Damaskox OP ,
@Damaskox@kbin.social avatar

@ghostatnoon Okay
So, basically posting heavy gore in a neutral way wouldn't break rules?

Hi @maegul, I just wanted to let you know. It's not perfect yet, but it's something I'll be working on in the coming months after the first release. Thanks for pointing it out, it's a relatively simple change, but it makes a significant difference in the overall experience.

@ernest Woah, this makes a heck of a difference. That's powerful!
I love the way that kbin gives you far more options to sort the Microblog feed than, say, Mastodon.

Most popular posts (by people I'm subscribed to) from the last week. Go. Boom!

I love it!

ContentConsumer9999 ,

@ernest Could you maybe allow us to have different options for the thread and microblog feed?

Is there any way to search or filter the abandoned magazines list?

@Damaskox@kbin.social avatar

How do you crosspost (in kbin.social)?

@Damaskox It still requires work. Currently, it's more about presenting threads.

I notice myself constantly thinking about the (more silent) magazines I have subscribed to and how they are faring.

I know that I find the magazines I have subscribed to through my profile and the subscriptions. But for reasons I cannot materialize to words that feels like a convoluted way to approach these magazines.

I'm not so sure what I'm trying to say - I guess I just hope there was a view equivalent to https://kbin.social/magazines that showed only the ones I have subscribed to (maybe there could be an option, a box you could tick?) and maybe showing the last time someone created any kind of activity within a magazine?

Damaskox OP ,
@Damaskox@kbin.social avatar

@ernest Yeah well you don't need to phrase it as "Last activity". Just in a way that the user understands what it means/is for 😁

Since I'm enthusiast about this - how long you think until it will be there? 6 months?

ernest ,
@ernest@kbin.social avatar

@Damaskox I was thinking more along the lines of a 6-week period. I'll do it as a break from a larger tasks.
