RTR#46 Some tests on kbin.social ( kbin.social )

The weekend tasks are taking longer for me, I found another bug that causes a 500 error, I'm still working on it.. This evening and tomorrow, I will be testing the changes on the kbin.social. If there are any issues, please mention me in the post or contact me directly through the contact form.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Which contact form? Does Kbin have an admin contact page?

ContentConsumer9999 ,

the link to the comment in the notification

What is this exactly?

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Oh! I think I've had that happen once. Glad it's getting fixed.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Kbin actually does let you look at and browse microblogs as well as threads.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

You'd have to be really clear about what you mean by "perfect".

ContentConsumer9999 ,

I feel like blocking someone should just make your content dissappear for them.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Blocking someone means that you don't want to interact with them anymore and making all of your content invisible to them is a pretty surefire way of doing that.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Yeah, I guess if they're constantly harassing you under your threads/microbologs/comments you can just report them and get them banned.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Well, I haven't been that active today but I haven't encountered any issues yet so things seem to be going well, at least for me.

What does the "Favorites" feed do? ( kbin.social )

I've been using Kbin for a few months now and I didn’t really feel the need to set my #feed to anything besides "Subscribed". I can guess from their names what the "All" and "Moderated" feed are but I have no idea what the #favorites feed does. I've seen that the recently added #collections also use the word "favorite" when...

ContentConsumer9999 OP ,

Got it! Thanks.
Btw, do you know if I see content from my favorited collections in my sub feed?

ContentConsumer9999 , to updates

@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.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

actually handles this really well. Whenever it detects 2 of the same (at least that's how I think it works), it'll group them and only show one of the threads on your feed. If you click on it, right under the thread will be the other -posted threads on other magazines, each of which has its own upvote/downvote and comment count. You can click on any of those threads to switch to a certain magazine's thread and see the there. Also, when you comment, it only goes to the thread you currently have open.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

has a to kind of deal with this called . Instead of subscribing to all of a same type or even name, you can put them in a collection (or find a collection where somebody already did that) and then favorite that collection see all of those magazines in your feed. Splitting up the discussion is still not ideal but at least this lets you see all of it at once and increases .

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Yeah, I believe Ernest had some serious irl issues come up and had to take a step back from development, which slowed progress down massively. But ever since he got back, he's been working really hard to the major and make the instance easier to use.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Yeah, I just wanted to specify it isn't a mass comment kind of thing.

Flipboard has begun testing ActivityPub federation of user accounts ( flipboard.com )

Mike McCue - Hello Fediverse. I'm posting this tonight from my federated Flipboard profile! We're now testing our #ActivityPub integration starting with my account. You can follow me here to see all the stories I'm curating about things like startups, photography and of course, the #Fediverse. Curious to hear your thoughts on...

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Can you actually PeerTube from other ? As a Kbin user, I can see both Lemmy threads and Mastodon microblogs and I know Mastodon users can tag Lemmy (and maybe also Kbin) magazines to make threads there. Is there a way to interact with PeerTube like that?

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Well, after messing around a little, Kbin seems to be able to do both. I can your PeerTube or to your . Interestingly, PeerTube seems to allow you to create multiple channels under a username which is kinda similar to Kbin's or Mastodon's .

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Oh, I just use on my posts to make them easily . So someone looking to see what people are saying about collections can search "" and find my post.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

Actually, I'm quite fond of this - formation. It lets people have different channels for different content. Like how some YouTubers have a main channel and a second channel with low quality videos or how some streamers have a VODs channel.

ContentConsumer9999 ,

I try to use hashtags for topics specific to my comment and not already covered by the thread, the comment(s) I'm replying to or the magazine in general since people know they can look under that thread to find more of that topic anyways. Now admittedly, I may not be that consistent with this and might make some tags that fall a bit outside the topic but that's at least my goal. I wasn't using Twitter that much before my Reddit migration and I first started using hashtags with Kbin so I'm not sure how exactly they should be used.

RTR#32 Further refactoring, debugging voting errors ( kbin.social )

Today, I continue with code refactoring, getting closer to finishing the most tedious part. I've also improved tools to prevent spam on the instance, which will take effect in a few days, addressing the issue of overloading other instances that have been reported. After today's wave of spam, I've also started working on...

/kbin logotype
ContentConsumer9999 ,

I've encountered an error a few times during upvoting, and it seems to occur when attempting to block users as well. I've made initial attempts to address the issue

Great! This is likely the most on Kbin right now so I'm glad it's getting fixed.

    I've never heard of . Can you how I can use them?

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Yeah, I already knew about collections. I don't think you can make one with though. Definitely an interesting .

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    I think the also helps with this.

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    I'd highly recommend it. The dev has been on an rampage lately. The future of the project seems bright.

    RTR#29 Another boring update: Categories and bug fixes ( kbin.social )

    Today, I wanted to introduce you to Categories - a new feature that is essentially a multi-mags view. A new tab will appear in the user panel where you can create categories (public or private) and then add magazines to them (local or remote). In the magazine listing, there will be another tab that will list public categories...

    ContentConsumer9999 , (edited )

    Another banger update! I can't tell you how convenient it is to have that media preview bug fixed. It was starting to get annoying to randomly have words missing. Are you planning to create an official Kbin category?
    Edit: Seems like it's already been made. Here's a link for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Will collections get a way to tag them like magazines?

    RTR#28 New Homepage Options, Improved Aggregate View, Support Us Box ( kbin.social )

    Today, I added new user customization options for the homepage, including the ability to set a new view. The Aggregate view is now featured in the main navigation under "All content," making it easier to navigate. Thanks for all the tips and feedback - great job ;)...

    /kbin logotype
    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Awesome work as always! The new all content page is much more convenient and I don’t think I've ever seen someone be this considerate while advertising (if you could even call it that). One thing I've noticed is that the support us part of the sidebar is somehow in French for me. I don't have any language settings set to French and this is the first time I've encountered such an .

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Yup, seems to be fixed! Thanks for the quick response.

    RTR#27 Aggregate view, work on federation ( kbin.social )

    Today, a test version of the aggregate view has been introduced on the instance. It's a mix of threadiverse and microblog formats, applying all filters, blacklists, sub filters, languages etc. After selecting *, the links to sub, mod, fav change, and navigation works within the aggregate view....

    /kbin logotype
    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    I really like this but currently it seems really difficult to activate it. Could you maybe turn this * button to a switch to indicate when it's on or off and to make sure it doesn't turn off when switching pages?

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    To add to this, can you let us make our the aggregate view?

    @ThatOneKirbyMain2568@kbin.social avatar

    I've noticed that a lot of people on the aren't particularly welcoming to those who don't initially get it or have trouble with it. You'd think that if multiple people say they have trouble picking an instance, it might be a genuine barrier to entry that we need to consider when introducing them to the fediverse. But no, instead of suggesting an instance to get rid of that barrier everyone gives unhelpful advice like "just pick one" or "it's not that hard." We'd have a much easier time getting people on the fediverse if there weren't so many people with this attitude of "the fediverse is simple, and the people who don't get it are lazy and should try harder."

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    @carturo222 As far as I know that's a Mastodon feature. Probably because it could cause some massive issues.

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Nobody in this thread seems to have mentioned . It's an instance that aims to combine the structure of instances like Mastodon with the thread structure of instances like Lemmy.

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Isn't that more akin to instances having "social" in their name?

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Yeah but mail isn't perfectly defining services either since last I checked FedEx didn't let you share links.

    RTR#22 Further improvements interspersed with code refactoring ( kbin.social )

    Today, I fixed some visual shortcomings. It is now possible to change images during post editing. The rules of the magazine have been included in the description on Fediverse to avoid misunderstandings with Lemmy users. Some changes are already on the instance, and the rest will be pushed by morning....

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

    Great to hear!

    RTR#20 Fix communication with the Threadiverse, new Support Us page ( kbin.social )

    Today, I fixed the communication with Lemmy instances that partially stopped working two days ago - it was related to content from internal magazines. I slightly changed the priority for tomorrow's update - first, spoiler support and the ability to filter the /sub feed by magazines, users, or domains separately will be...

    /kbin logotype
    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Does this also include better federated moderation? I remember that being a big concern among mods and instance devs.

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    Could you maybe give users the ability to exclude certain communities/hashtags? Some hashtags associated with communities like seem to be overused to the point that following it barely filters content.

    How does one embed a GIF so it shows in a comment without clicking any links?

    Test: https://tenor.com/fi/view/this-is-just-sad-sad-angry-mock-horror-gif-11156785

    Test 2: <div class="tenor-gif-embed" data-postid="11156785" data-share-method="host" data-aspect-ratio="1.77515" data-width="100%"><a href="https://tenor.com/view/this-is-just-sad-sad-angry-mock-horror-gif-11156785">This Is Just Sad Angry GIF</a>from <a href="https://tenor.com/search/this+is+just+sad-gifs">This Is Just Sad GIFs</a></div> <script type="text/javascript" async src="https://tenor.com/embed.js"></script>

    Test 3: I tried to add it as a picture as a file from the computer but editing this comment doesn't add it.

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    What did you do for the first one?

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    For me only the one before "Test:" seems to be working. Is that the 3rd one somehow going on top?

    ContentConsumer9999 ,

    This works!
