Gamers_Mate OP ,

To be honest I thought it was satire when I first saw the headline.

Gamers_Mate OP ,

Cool so just normal Kbin/lemmy stuff.

Issues with the functioning of kbin.social (kbin.social)

The issues that started occurring on Sunday turned out to be more serious than anticipated, extending beyond the application code. We are still working on resolving them to ensure the proper functioning of the website, but we need some more time. Apologies for any inconvenience.

I have noticed a few (Error 50x) appearing especially if I sort by new. A sort of work around I have found is going to someones username to see what they post.
This post for example did not appear but I was able to find it by going to moderators in the sidebar and clicking Ernest.

Working on Kbin is a lot of work and as far as I know Ernest is a solo dev. So we should be patient and give him all the time he needs.

Gamers_Mate ,

Ms should continue security patches are get fined for the e-waste they will cause.

“we don’t like or condone bigotry in any form.” I mean they are litterally Condoning bigotry.

"His response similarly doesn’t engage other questions from the Substackers Against Nazis authors, like why these policies allow it to moderate spam and newsletters from sex workers but not Nazis."

Doesn't seem very consistent.

Gamers_Mate ,

Someone should get a bunch of games that Nintendo shut down and call it the forbidden library.

"French artist Jean Jullien (previously) has teamed up with Case Studyo to create a jolly sculpture titled “La Baleine,” a.k.a. “The Whale.” With a functional blowhole that can hold pencils, plants, or flowers, the porcelain vessel features Jullien’s signature chunky line drawings. The wide, toothy grin adds a sense of optimism and goodwill, while the artist likens the blowhole to “an emblem of exhaling and releasing creative energy.”

Imagine the whale sneezes and your pencils go everywhere.

Gamers_Mate ,

I am not sure about this place though some tech communities I have lost interest in because they became less about cool tech and stuff and more about the companies themselves.

Gamers_Mate ,

Looks like they are part of a Barbershop Quartet.

Gamers_Mate ,

I thought this was about The Elder Scrolls Blades and was confused why it said 50th anniversary.

Gamers_Mate OP , (edited )

There is now a third one but in french flavour. https://kbin.social/u/kolojengkeng
If this keeps happening I will have to make it into a list.

Edit heres another one. https://kbin.social/u/shareena
It looks like kbin is being targeted by bots I doubt that will be the last one.

Gamers_Mate OP ,

They appear to have stopped for now.
The only one I saw is u/locutor99 which was created 11 hours ago but I am not sure if it connected to the other ones since the posts are about dubbing and not watching movies.

Gamers_Mate ,

You know the printing industry is messed up when "Our printers are less hated" is not satire.

Gamers_Mate ,

I prefer Destiny 1 at least it is a full game with all the story intact.

Deleting all the main story and half the DLC people paid for is not how you run a game.

Gamers_Mate ,

yes but It is not cross platform.
Maybe we should start a fediverse Clan for destiny 1.

If you want to buy the DLC the order is as follows.
1: The dark below
2: House of Wolves
3: The Taken King
4: Rise of Iron.
Though for Rise of Iron you need a ps4/xbox one or newer to play as xbox 360 and ps3 does not have that content.

LogoFAIL - A malicious attack that uses the company branding on boot to run deep code that Secure Boot and Operating Systems can't detect (www.securityweek.com)

Firmware security company Binarly on Wednesday disclosed the details of an attack method that can be used to compromise many consumer and enterprise devices by leveraging malicious UEFI logo images....

Gamers_Mate ,

Would it be safer to just remove any logo and just have it boot without a logo?

"Chen, through a Mandarin interpreter, told Judge Elizabeth Reid that he didn’t know the gummies contained THC because he does not speak or read English.

“This potentially could have had devastating consequences but he immediately pulled over and called 911,” Reid said."

I wonder if he bought them or if someone offered it to him knowing that he cant read english?

Not sure how things work in Connecticut but I assume if he went to a dispensary there would be big weed leaf symbols everywhere?

Gamers_Mate ,

Cute. This post has got me wondering if cats can have green tea.

Gamers_Mate ,

I think Wrapped is like youtube rewind for spotify.They are talking about how the layoffs happened just after they finished working on that?

Though I think it is less the streaming model being a scam and more the way Spotify is taking all the profit and avoiding to properly pay out smaller creators.

Gamers_Mate ,

What competitors do you recommend?
I use soundcloud and have used Bandcamp but Bandcamp got sold to Epic.
I have also heard of Faircamp which looks promising.

Gamers_Mate ,

Nice I will give Deezer a try.

PlayStation Accounts Being Permanently Suspended - No Explanation (www.theverge.com)

Tried to log in and my account is permanently suspended. I don't do anything close to breaking terms of service and have no clue why this is happening. Found this article and apparently it's not just me. Fingers crossed we get a solution quickly.

Gamers_Mate ,

This could be a bug but the silence from Sony could mean it is a hack or they have no idea what is causing it either. A simple we are investigating what is going on would help ease a lot of stress.

I haven't been banned yet but I am going to avoid logging in from now on till we know why this is happening.

Dumb question. How to crosspost?

Gamers_Mate , (edited )

@Gordon_Freeman

@ThatOneKirbyMain2568
So that is how crossposts work here.
I am gonna test it by using the same link on two testing magazines.
Edit: This is an awesome feature.

866 Trackers this has to be some kind of new record?

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...

Gamers_Mate ,

That gave me a 404 error. Though this worked for me.
Edit nvm Livus beat me to it.

Gamers_Mate ,

I found this works on lemmy world for finding their profile.
It seems kbin has an @ for the name as well as the site while lemmy just has an @for the site they are from.

Gamers_Mate ,

This is one of the reasons I use soundcloud when listening to music.

Gamers_Mate ,

If they wanted to fix Destiny 2 they would bring back the red war campaign and all the other ones they have vaulted.

Gamers_Mate ,

I appear to be having some technically difficulties and I just don't know what went wrong.

Gamers_Mate ,

First thing I noticed was the adorable picture what ai did you use to generate it? It turned out amazing!

Gamers_Mate ,

I didn't see in the article which terrorist faction was responsible.
Was it the IDF or Hamas? Anyway screw them both.
Genocidal maniacs have no place in society.

What are your thoughts on Microblogs vs threads? (kbin.social)

When I first joined Kbin I posted threads due to being a reddit refugee but have started posting microblogs as time went on. I have also noticed some magazines have more threads while others have more microblog posts. For example kbinmeta has more threads while the most active magazine I moderate has mostly microblogs.

This is why letting kids learn stuff the hard way by putting themselves in danger is a bad idea.
Some kids like ubisoft will touch the stove even if it burns them the first time.

Gamers_Mate ,

This post made me curious to search it myself.

Turns out there was a conman who repeated scammed people into thinking they bought the Brooklyn Bridge. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/I_have_a_bridge_to_sell_you

Gamers_Mate ,

Sorry it took me so long to comment this is pretty RAD!

Gamers_Mate , to updates

its been a while how goes things with kbin?

Gamers_Mate ,

Preventing an elected mayor from serving sounds like a violation of democracy. Their Spouses/Siblings must be very disappointed in them.

Gamers_Mate ,

I am not sure how to see the main feed of mastodon from kbin but you can use
https://kbin.social/u/@USERNAME@INSTANCENAME to view posts from a specific user.
Kbin seems to treat individual accounts on mastodon as different magazines.
Also from Mastodon it will not appear in the main feed but you can use a fediverse link to view it and comment on it.
Next to comments and posts where it says more it will give you a fediverse link. If someone puts that in the search bar in mastodon they can connect to it.

Gamers_Mate ,

I just tested it and have not had any issues. Are you using a specific app or browser?
