IIRC don't think there's even way to export data if you want to move instances either . Hope it all gets resolved sooner than later

Still need reddit to

  • Look at posts related to interests
  • Troubleshoot problems

Probably'll stay that way until threadiverse reaches critical mass (will it ever ?)

Firefish's code was also (unknowingly fwir) hosted on server run by nazis , just felt like pointing it out

Not sure if Firefish's Just Like That™ or its being made deliberately hard to archive …

🆗 so users from blocked domains can still interact with my posts , now getting notifications originating from one

Am still very much trying to figure out how this all works …

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

@insomniac_lemon Strange how its inconsistent like that . Can't block even certain "compatible" instance domains (want to block unilem.org bcus its explicit no defed policy , but typing in kbin.social/d/unilem.org does nothing)

How are Lemmy instances able to even see microblog posts ? Afaik Lemmy doesn't have microblogging feature , interaction between Lemmy and more microblog oriented parts of the fediverse should be more limited right ? Unless it was something they recently added , or a 3rd party app that adds it ig ?

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

@quortez Huh. I ask bcus a bunch of lemm.ee users replied to my microblog post (and nearly right after i made it) it's weird

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

@bdonvr No, haven't

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

@Pamasich Yeah i found out after posting this Lemmy treats microblog posts from kbinstances as threads , but thx for explanation anyway !

This is an old topic from Reddit, sorry about that, but I think the community would benefit from separating porn and other types of nsfw by adding the nsfl tag. (kbin.social)

I've seen several posts lately of people complaining about porn showing up in their feeds and the posters say that they don't want to block all nsfw posts because they follow other things, like news from the war in Ukraine, that gets tagged nsfw because of graphic imagery. I think they have a reasonable complaint and that the...

Wy not adding CW field like what Mastodon has ? Some peops (like me) want something more descriptive than "NSFL" , and it's more flexible bcus you can type briefly what the post has instead of adding ton of flags

I sometimes see posts about child abuse on /all and really want them at least behind "CW: abuse"

Threadiverse needs more artists less reposts

Does anyone else feel the general lemmy instances are noise? (kbin.social)

I quite value content from targetted instances, but most of the "general" instances seem to be memes, posts on boosting lemmy, memes, reddit, memes bot posts, memes, reddit, memes, discussion on lemmy mobile applications, memes reddit, memes, and people talking about how the lemmy changed their lives oh and memes....

I'd love to block lemmy.world but keep communities am subbed to (whitelist|unblock)ed . Not just i don't care much for memes , but there's lot of shitty peops on there (racists|reply guys|.*)

  • Tried joining a Lemmy instance but loading spinner stay stuck , didn't successfully create account
  • Not much of a redditor , glad you're not limited to redditlike functions . Only downside's microblog functionality very basic compared to single purpose platforms (Mastodon|(.*)key) , but don't want hassle of maintaining multiple fediverse accounts

Wen tryn to do something i never done before , dont wanna hear long winded explanation of how CSS thing works (it doesn't for me) , jsut want solution …

Wat ive tried doing : replicate this view mode for posts with thumbnails , have trouble getting <figure>s to auto adjust height based on image height

A view mode like this something i miss from Infinity app …

@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Noice ❗ Trying to have this view mode for the website as well … so hard ⚰️

Have you had any bad experiences with people on Kbin yet? Can we do better than Reddit culture? (lemmy.world)

However, when reddit crapped the bed, by comparison, the threadiverse basically didn’t have an established culture. There was a handful of lemmy instances (we were one of them), but the only one of notable size was lemmy.ml. kbin didn’t even exist in any meaningful way until a couple of months before reddit died....

@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Thankfully never had direct interactions whit unsavoury types , but sadly there's unsavoury mags out there when looking through modlog

They're documented here , am just focusing on ones on our instance (kbin.social) . Hope it takes similar moderation approach !

Me too , getting logged out but couldn't discern cause . Getting m/kbinmeta/newest issue too

I recently did crappy embed of svg icons for post controls , replacing the text (for now)? . i accidentally boosted a bigoted post when i intended to report it . Sorry about that !

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Here's what the icons look like . Clicking rightmost one instead triggers boost (middle) . I hope to fix it sometime

Eigengrau ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Idc for their usage , I use them myself sometime ❕

Also OOTL wy reddit hates them so much

I'll say this though : if you ever catch me use 🙃 , take me out back and shoot me like Old Yeller ‼️

@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Glad we're getting downtime, need break from diagnosing whats wrong with my CSS while workin on it 🛌

I designed and rendered a couple of icons for the magazines I started, and I’d like to share some behind the scenes images with y'all. I’m also open to doing a few more of these in future. (kbin.social)

So I 3D modelled two icons (well, illustrations rather) for the communities that I created on kbin: Industrial Design and Jewelry Design. These icons are meant to reimagine kbin’s logo in a way that's relevant to each community....

@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

I have to start from scratch all over again … coflicted if want to post userstyle right now in unfinished state , sometimes have hard time diagnosing issues . But i really desperate for help ‼️

Comment section margins in particular i have hard time getting to loook how i want (within kbin HTML structure limitations which's whole other worm can) 🪦 they're inconsistent and seem to have mind of their own

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Relevant CSS

Is there any one else who feels like their life has been disrupted by this whole debacle with Reddit. (kbin.social)

I really do like KBin and Lemmy and the fediverse on the whole, but development is still young and the userbase still growing. KBin is still basically early access, and Lemmy is buggy. I spent alot of time in reddit and I'm feeling the pain of trying to ween myself from it. Just wanted to here community perspectives and see how...

Trying figure out solving tech issues , wasn't ready to stop wit (.*) site:reddit.com . Just wasnt ..

Seconding adding this , even filed issue about it . Hope it gets added even for parity's sake ! 🙏

@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Regarding hate communities that try coming here , there's also m/trutrans a truscum community i saw on top bar one day while working on userstyle

Currently empty but kill it before it takes root , hope these communities get banned and we defederate from instances like that

EDIT : Gonna use this to compile mags i encounter

EDIT 2 : Mags now listed here for better (organization|readability)

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Another one : m/modernmisogyny . TERF mag

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

m/men : Antifeminist

Men don't face systemic oppression , end of

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

m/FuckingFascists : Fuck fascists (not like that) . Supporting them solely in kink contexts still supporting them , same principle as "ironic" racism

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

m/(pc|linux)masterrace : I mean, look at the name

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

m/ambient : modded by same guy who runs m/men

RIP my ambient loving ass ⚰️😞

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Rentry link lists every mag ran by owner of problematic mags for user safety ig , but i'd like to get 2nd opinion on that approach , riddled with doubts far too often

Eigengrau OP ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

Am really starting to lose my patience . I may've no choce but to move instances , but then that would mean i can no longer maintain the list

  • TwoXChromosomes : Just TERF subreddit by name alone
  • (Kotaku|Tumblr)InAction : I hate Kotaku but not for same reason peops in those subreddits hate them
  • Not so much confined to specific subreddits , but whol "(CHINA|RUSSIA) BAD" mindset : You don't have to believe everything they do's good , but can't trust peops to not be (sino|russio)phobic about it
Eigengrau ,
@Eigengrau@kbin.social avatar

I don't go on there bcus, again, name makes me think TERF subreddit . A name like TwoXChromosomes doesn't sound like it'd be welcoming for trans women.

Also is always possible they're just more crypto about their TERFyness

What are your favorite browser extensions?

Ublock Origin is an obvious one, but I also can't stand not having Foxy Gestures anymore. It adds customizable mouse gestures, so you can set it up to have easy swipes to go back a page, reload a page, close a tab, etc, and it feels wonderful and smooth to use compared to just using the traditional buttons to do everything....
