The project definitely accepts contributions, the mbin devs have contributed to kbin before and a few weeks ago a minor code change was committed and merged by someone other than ernest.

As I understand it, the issue is that people with merge permissions other than ernest are only allowed to merge their own pull requests, not those of third parties, which require a review from ernest.
(At least that's what I've seen explained before, though I haven't seen any proof of it so I don't fully know if it's real.)

This means a majority of contributors can't get their pull requests merged when ernest is gone. Which is why they went and made mbin when he was gone for months last time.

For the love of God, please delete my fucking account. It's been over a month. Please.

I just want to not have it be here anymore, I want to stop having my votes public and just make a new account on another site that has more privacy and better features (like automatic account deletion).

Do I need to log out first? What's taking so long? Why does it even go into a manual queue?

Please just delete my account.

@SLaSZT
I'm a bit late, but since no one seems to have given you an answer yet: Account deletion is currently manual and the instance's owner has been inactive since the year started. He came here every few weeks to remind us he's not dead yet, but otherwise it's been silence. Since account deletion is manual, that means there simply is no one there who could fulfill your deletion request currently.

I want to stop having my votes public and just make a new account on another site

Make sure not to switch to another fediverse site like a Lemmy instance. Lemmy hides the votes to its users, pretending they're private, but still happily gives them out to other sites like kbin to display or harvest.

Ernest hasn't abandoned kbin this time, he did post an update last week.

Today, I'm going for a minor procedure at the hospital, and I won't be available for the next 2-4 days. When I return, I'll push all the corrections and fixes I've been working on and present plans for the near future.

Him not being back yet probably means the hospital procedure didn't go as smoothly as expected, but he's not gone on purpose.

@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

Ernest has said in the update I mentioned in my other comment that

When I return, I'll push all the corrections and fixes I've been working on

This means he has made local commits over those 2 months that simply haven't been pushed yet.

Also, there is in fact a commit made 4 days ago. Though not from ernest.

Reddit revenue rises 20% ahead of IPO, but it isn’t profitable yet (www.businesstimes.com.sg)

REDDIT posted a more than 20 per cent rise in revenue in 2023 versus the year before, sources familiar with the situation said, as it prepares for one of the United States’ most anticipated potential initial public offerings (IPOs).

@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

I don't really get how these "IPOs" work. Someone actually has to pay that money for Reddit, right? Even if they manage to get Reddit temporarily profitable, are people really going to get fooled into investing just from that? Or are they guaranteed to get whatever Reddit's value is at the time of the IPO somehow?

They teach antisemitism and terrorism.

I've found this article that talks about it (among some other reasons), though I've also seen it on other sites.

A recent report by the watchdog group IMPACT-se highlighted that UNRWA's educational materials, based on the Palestinian Authority (PA) curriculum, contain antisemitic content and celebrate violence and martyrdom-jihadist culture.

UNRWA has a significant position in educating almost 545,000 Palestinian children across the Middle East.

The IMPACT-se report examined educational materials used in UNRWA schools, particularly in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, where the PA curriculum is adopted.

The PA curriculum, which has been under scrutiny since its 2016 revision, is found to contain – like it did before its revision – antisemitic content and the promotion of violence, jihad, and ‘martyrdom’ culture, while omitting teachings of peace and coexistence. UNRWA, while not producing its own curriculum, supplements the host country’s curriculum with additional materials. Despite pledges to counter-act calls for violence by UNRWA, the report found a disturbing failure to do so.

More than 80 UNRWA teachers and staff across more than 30 schools have been caught distributing hateful content in their textbooks.

According to UN Watch: “Teachers and schools at the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which runs education and social services for Palestinians, regularly call to murder Jews, and create teaching materials that glorify terrorism, encourage martyrdom, demonize Israelis and incite antisemitism.”

but I'm curious how you expect Gazans to sing peace's praises

I don't, I only answered your question ("How is UNRWA perpetuating anything?"). Most of which was quoted from an article I linked.

I'm not the original poster you originally replied to. I actually agree with what you say about Israel perpetuating the conflict too, probably more. But UNRWA is undeniably doing its part too.

@janettespeyer I just saw this post from kbin, a Reddit alternative on the fediverse.

Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

They both federate and they both look the same I think.

However, Mastodon search works by tags iirc. And kbin/lemmy users tend to not use tags. So discoverability is low.
The Microblog section is supposed to add the magazine's tags to your posts there, though I don't know if it currently does. I remember reading issues about it not being the case, but those were rather old, so not sure about the current status.

@novamdomum@kbin.social avatar

Are there any add ons for Kbin or any existing features within it that would let me filter out posts based on selected keywords? So if I didn't ever want to read any posts that mentioned bitcoin or covid for example, does anyone know of a way to achieve that on kbin? Sort of how RES could do that on reddit.

@novamdomum I don't think there is anything like that currently, but you can request it for KES.

Issue with sort by hot (kbin.social)

This has been an issue since the beginning of Kbin tmk, but when you make a post, it won't appear under sort by hot unless it has an upvote. This means that if someone forgets to upvote their own post, it just won't appear on the default sort. There are plenty of posts I've missed because of this....

/kbin logotype
Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

I think it would be great if we could change the default sort. Would love to sort by new by default.

If there's not already a functionality like that hidden somewhere (checked in both settings menus), I'll put it on my list of stuff I want to implement via userscripts.

Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar
  • Under the post there's a "more" button behind which you can find a "report" option. I assume this goes to the moderators of the magazine, but not entirely sure.
  • In the site's footer, there's a Contact link if you need to report something to the instance owner directly.
  • And of course you can just message or otherwise contact your instance's owner, in this case Ernest. There's a Send Message button in the sidebar when viewing profiles.

I'm not sure what KES

Kbin Enhancement Suite. Inspired by the Reddit extension of the same name (RES).

It's a userscript that provides many opt-in atomic features with a shared api and settings interface.

Current features include:

  • hiding various sidebar elements
  • bringing up a list of subscribed magazines via hotkey
  • displaying the instance next to usernames and magazines
  • a mail icon next to usernames which starts a new message when clicked
  • notifications easily accessible in the navbar
  • softblocking magazines
  • syntax highlighting
  • fixing broken lemmy code blocks
  • and various others
Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

I think you're referring to the black bar below comments that are too long which can be clicked to expand the comment?

That has nothing to do with KES's collapsible comments feature as someone else brought up. It's a native kbin feature.

KES actually has a feature that addresses this by automatically clicking that bar, but it seems to only apply to thread bodies, not comments, currently. If you're interested in having it apply to comments too, try filing a new issue on Github requesting the feature. The mod in question is "Always expand post bodies" in the Threads category. This should be fairly easy to add.

Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

I know what they mean, because I have the same issue on my work pc (but not at home). I forgot it happens because the personal userstyle I'm using includes CSS to fix this issue entirely.

@speck get yourself Stylus if you don't have it already and try this CSS which works perfectly for me:

div.more:not(:nth-child(1 of .more)) {
    display: none;
}

Can't guarantee it works with kbin's built in custom CSS functionality, as that one seems to filter out some selectors (no logic behind which).


@shazbot
Basically, what happens without that CSS is that

  1. Clicking the bar once scrolls me down a bit but otherwise does absolutely nothing.
  2. Clicking the bar again turns the arrow upwards and spawns a new bar above the existing one.
  3. Clicking the upper bar repeats step 1.
  4. Clicking the upper bar again turns the arrow upwards but doesn't spawn another bar, nor does it do anything else.
  5. Clicking the lower bar removes the upper one again and turns the arrow back downwards.

At no point is the comment ever expanded. When OP says it obscures text, that's just the default state where only x lines of the comment are shown and the bar covers the last line(s). The issue is the comment can't be expanded, so it keeps obscuring the text even when clicked as nothing actually moves.

Looking at the HTML source, I can see five instances of the bar existing at once on the same comment.

I tested just now to turn off my scripts one by one and KES was the culprit. Disabling it fixed the issue. I'll try checking which feature is causing it.

Pamasich , (edited )
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

@shazbot @speck

For me, the culprit is the collapsible comments mod (or the standalone script if you're using that one).

edit: The root cause seems to be lines 182 to 190. But the actual troublemaker appears to be on kbin's side, not KES. When the mod's main function finishes, the comment still only has only one .more element like when it began.

I've disabled all other mods and userscripts, so it's not one of those. Also just tried to disable KES (and even the monkey) entirely, running the script from the console instead. No change either, it's still happening.

The code fragment in question copies the comment into a new children container. I'm thinking this probably makes some part of kbin confused, leading to the issues we're seeing.
It might be best to just include the userstyle I'm using in the CSS added by the mod.

This is the code between lines 182 and 190, removing which prevents the issue:

let children = previousComment.querySelector('.children');
if (!children) {
    // If not, create one
    children = document.createElement('div');
    children.className = 'children';
    previousComment.appendChild(children);
}
// Insert comment into children container
children.prepend(comment);

Teardown isn't working for me, tried multiple devices and turned my custom styling off.

What's the quickest way to find a magazine/community you've subscribed to? (kbin.social)

/kbin logotype

@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

It's definitely not ideal at all currently. You've already found out how to do it currently, but I'd like to point you towards some alternatives that currently exist to make this easier until ernest adds something official.

Here's the userscripts I know of, each approaches the task a bit differently:

  • KES (Kbin Enhancement Suite) has a feature that brings up your subscriptions with a hotkey.
  • Improved Channel Select Menu adds your subscriptions and collections to the select channel menu. It's the one with the 3 dots and lines next to your username. This one is the only one that currently supports collections I think.
  • Floating Subs List adds a new (collapsible) sidebar to the left which contains your subscribed magazines.

Choose whichever sounds like more your thing, or try each and go with which works best for you.

If you're not familiar with userscripts: just get yourself either Greasemonkey, Tampermonkey, or Violentmonkey from your browser's extension/addon store, then head to the script's greasyfork page (I linked you to them above) and click the big green button. For KES it's a bit special but just as simple, just use this link, it should bring up an installation page. After installing KES, you're looking for a wrench next to the user button to access its options and turn the feature on.

Hey @ernest

I just noticed that, while kbin supports Lemmy-style spoilers, it seems like actual spoilers federated from Lemmy don't appear as spoilers on kbin yet. Are you aware of that?

For reference, here's a thread where I tested this with my lemm.ee test account.

The federated spoiler just displays in plain text still.

Pamasich , (edited )
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

I think the color variation would help me better process what I’m looking at.

You can change the color yourself btw. The traditional method is to install the Stylus extension/addon, but I think kbin now lets you define your own styling in your profile settings, though I haven't tried it. (tried it now and this doesn't really seem possible there, has the same selector deletion issues as magazine css)

In the HTML code, microblog posts and threads are represented differently. Posts are blockquote, while threads are article. This makes it easy to restyle them via userstyles.

So you should be able to just

div#content {
    > article {
        /* thread styling */
    }
    > blockquote {
        /* microblog post styling */
       background-color: red;
    }
}

You can also define the color in rgb rgb(255,0,0) or hsl (hsl(0,100%,50%)).

Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

The images I'm using here probably won't work as embeds, but opening them as links should work.

Depending on if you use Firefox or a Chromium-based browser (Chrome, Edge, and almost all the others), get yourself the Stylus extension (chromium) or addon (firefox).

Once installed in your browser, open the extension by clicking on the icon next to your address bar. If it's not there, there's a puzzle piece button to open a list of all your extensions where you can click on it. I'm writing this from an Edge perspective, so for other browsers, especially Firefox, this might not be entirely accurate.

This opens up a menu where your current styles are listed and can be turned on/off (well, the list is empty for now of course), and there's buttons to "Manage" and "Find styles".
Above those buttons, there's a link to the current page. Click on the kbin.social part of that link.

This should open up the editor in a new window.
Just copy and paste the following code into that window.

div#content {
    > article {
        /* thread styling */
    }
    > blockquote, > blockquote + .comments > blockquote {
        /* microblog post styling */
        background-color: red;
    }
}

Give the style a name to the left and hit the yellow "Save" button. The site will update in real time, you shouldn't even need to reload it for the changes to take effect after saving. In fact, after saving it once, you don't even have to keep saving it after every change in my experience.

I've changed the above code a bit to also cover the replies to posts, that's what the .comments stuff is about.

This will give you a very red background. I just chose this for the example to make the change obvious to see at a glance. You can replace the red with another color name, or an RGB or HSL value for a more granular choice.

I recommend using HSL if you want to tweak the color later without having to open up a color picker. You just choose a base color, how saturated it should be, and how light you want it. And optionally the transparency.
The HSL equivalent for red is hsl(0,100%,50%).

If you just want microblog posts to be a bit lighter or darker (depending on your theme) than threads, you can use hsla(0,0%,100%,0.15) (this makes them lighter, change the 100% to 0% for darker). Tweak the transparency (the last value) to change the intensity of the color change.

Besides the background color, you can also change other CSS properties. Just add additional lines in the pattern property: value;.
For example, you can set a border using border: 1px red solid;, which creates a red solid border of 1 pixel width.
I like to use this site as a reference myself for what properties exist and how they're used.

Improved Channel Select Menu 0.2.0 — Makes your subscribed magazines and liked channels more accessible (greasyfork.org)

One of my most wanted features as of late has been for the channel select menu to have my subscribed magazines and liked collections. Right now, it just contains some general feeds, but I thought it'd be super useful to also have your mags and collections there for easy access! However, given that Kbin development priorities are...

Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

Thanks, this is the best implementation idea for this I've seen yet imo, will definitely be using this from now on.

I haven't found any bugs yet, but I'd like to request two future improvements:

  • Changing the order of magazines and collections
Details

I have like three collections and a ton of magazines, so having to scroll through all the magazines to reach the collections is a bit of a pain. It's still much easier than before this script, but it would be even better if I could move the collections above the magazines.
On the other hand, someone else might have the opposite situation and would prefer it the way it currently is, so unlike the other user I'm not asking you to just swap the order.
I think the ideal solution would be adding a setting somewhere to determine which comes first. So every user can tailor the functionality to their needs.

  • Support for turbo mode
Details

Ernest added turbo as an optional mode in the past months (you can find it in the sidebar options). It turns the site into a single page experience, which means kbin.social links don't open the website anew entirely but rather replace the page content, including the changes your script makes. This cuts down on loading time, but it also causes scripts to break.

It would be great if the script were to support turbo mode eventually, especially if Ernest makes it the standard in the future (it is marked as experimental currently, so that's probably the eventual intention).

To do so, you'd have to attach a MutationListener to the body element like I did here. But that will run many times more than just on navigation, so you'd also have to ensure your code does support being run multiple times without breaking.

Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

As I understand it, the message here is that any decently savvy user of Firefox turns off telemetry, so mozilla doesn't know of them using extensions. hence why they say 80% don't use them, people who do use them don't give them their usage data.

Pamasich ,
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

Kbin.social has just had some big issues recently and still hasn't fully recovered (which is why development is currently stalled), so it's absolutely possible you'll run into more issues currently than usual. Not sure if what you're experiencing there is part of that though.

Pamasich , to updates
@Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

@ernest
I've noticed this week that I'm currently seeing no visual indication that the boost button is active. No underline, color, or anything.
It seems that a now-broken userstyle I'm using expects there to be an "active" class applied to the element, but it isn't anymore. Is that intentional?
Figured I should point this out to you in case you don't know already.

[UPDATE] Issues with the functioning of kbin.social (kbin.social)

    You should contact @ernest I think. He's the admin of the instance. Though, I think he's on a christmas break with his family right now, judging by his inactivity over the recent days and what he said in the last devlog.

    If it's just about preventing your access to your account though, I think setting a password that you don't know would do the trick. Maybe set half of it yourself and have someone else contribute the other half, so neither of you knows the full password.

    I do think you're putting yourself down too much about the quality of your posts. Referencing a comment of yours here. I've looked a bit through your history and didn't really see anything out of the ordinary.

    So, I asked this to the three different conversation styles of Bing Chat.

    The Precise style actually tried to solve it, came to the conclusion the question might be of philosophical nature, including some potential meanings, and asked for clarification.

    The Balanced style told me basically the same as the other reply by admiralteal, that the question makes no sense and I should give more context if I actually want it answered.

    The Creative style told me it didn't understand the first part, but then answered the second part (the turtles being blue) seriously.

    Not sure, I'm not familiar with the test, just figured I'd tell the results from asking the AI.

    I think based on what you said about it

    AI will actually TRY to solve it.
    Human nature would be to ask if the person asking the question is having a stroke or requires medical attention.

    That the Balanced style didn't fail, because while it didn't ask about strokes or medical attention, it did point out I'm asking a nonsense question and refused to engage with it.

    The Precise style did try to find an answer and the Creative style didn't realize I'm fucking with it, so I do think based on the criteria they'd fail the test.

    Though, honestly, I'd fail the test too. When asked such a question, I'd think there has to be an answer and it's stupid of me not to see it and I'd look for it. I think the Precise style's answer is very much where I'd end up.

    A while ago, kbin's development came to a standstill because ernest was gone for weeks and the project's contribution guidelines are very restrictive.

    Many contributors, including major ones, decided to leave the project and work on their own fork which uses more open contribution guidelines based on consensus.

    They adopt all the changes ernest makes to kbin, but have their own features on top of that. I believe fedia.io, for example, runs mbin now.

    Pamasich ,
    @Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

    That's weird. I was testing it out with a userstyle, which worked, so I assumed it would work with custom css too. But I guess there might be some restrictions in place? Seems very restrictive though if that's the case here. Not even the first one I gave works. I'll see if I can find anything out.

    Pamasich ,
    @Pamasich@kbin.social avatar

    Okay, so I've created a magazine and tested some stuff out.

    In the first code I posted, I used the child selector (>) to select <header> elements directly inside <main> elements. For some reason, custom CSS doesn't seem to support the child selector. No matter where I try to use it, the style isn't applied.

    The following code worked for me on my magazine:

    main header:has(h1[hidden]) {
        height: 300px;
        background-image: url(https://i.imgur.com/wbZa4eI.png);
        background-size: 100% auto;
        background-position-y: -150px;
    }
    
    

    I removed the child selector and instead used :has(hi1[hidden]) to make sure I only get the target element. Without it, it would also replace the background of the individual thread titles.

    The image you're trying to use is a bit large, so I've included an example usage of background-size and background-position to change the size of the image and what part of it actually gets displayed.
    With background-size, the first value is how wide the image should be, while the latter value is how high. Percentage values are relative to the element's size. So the width and height properties. You can also set absolute values, like I did with height in pixels in this example.

    The big issue with this one though is that it'll only apply to the Threads and All Content views. Other views, including Microblog and individual threads, don't have the <header> element I'm looking for here.

    I modified it to apply to more views:

    h1[hidden] {
        height: 300px;
        background-image: url(https://i.imgur.com/wbZa4eI.png);
        background-size: 100% auto;
        background-position-y: -150px;
        display: block;
        color: transparent;
        user-select: none;

    The last two lines are there because this actually displays the name of the magazine on the banner. Since that's kind of redundant, since it's already in the bar at the top, I'm hiding the text and making it not selectable.

    This one does work in all the views I tested except for when looking at a thread and its comments.

    Though, something worth considering in case you intend to just use this code as-is: I just used pixels for simplicity. But the result might look entirely different on other screen resolutions than mine. Here's a list of better units to use if you want it to look the same on all screens. You can use percentages, pixels, and these other units interchangeably anywhere.


    About the second code I posted, for some reason :before, much like the child selector, doesn't seem to work. I can very much target the #middle and #header elements from custom magazine CSS, but :before doesn't do anything.

    I'm not sure why this is. I see no security reason to block them, so I assume it's not intentional. It's a bit hard to debug :before specifically because I don't know any way to get its styles without making it visible. So I have no idea if something is overwriting the style or if the selector just doesn't work, like is the case with the child selector. I'll have to look into this a bit more over the weekend.

    I can see it. Maybe it's the point I mentioned here:

    Maybe the values I gave are too small for you to see on your screen?

    edit: wait, why does the image not work, I literally just uploaded it

    edit 2: not sure if you can view this since it's blocked in some countries, but here's a catbox upload.

    edit 3: right, I just noticed that, because I'm mixing percentages and absolute units here, the image actually moves around as I change the screen size. I'll refine the example with more reliability later today.

    I'm currently using this code on /m/pamasich:

    h1[hidden] {
        height: 12vh;
        background-image: url(https://i.imgur.com/wbZa4eI.png);
        background-size: cover;
        background-position: center;
        display: block;
        color: transparent;
        user-select: none;
    }
    
    

    To me, this works both on pc and mobile.

    Though, the one on /m/cars right now works for me too.

    Say, do you see any custom CSS anywhere? I mean, I'm not even sure which magazines use it anyway, do you see something on /m/pamasich? Besides the test banner, I also made the magazine name in the sidebar red.

    If you don't see anything changed there, do you maybe have custom CSS turned off? In your settings, there's an option Ignore magazines custom CSS under a text field that lets you enter personal custom css. Make sure that's not checked.

    Good to hear!

    that blocks your bank or even some games if your phone is rooted

    That's your bank and those games, not Google.

    The games are obviously afraid of cheating/hacking. For the bank it's about your account's security. Root access gives a lot of power to potentially malicious actors, it's definitely not weird for them to not work if your phone is rooted.

    This sadly doesn't work anymore for me, the boost button doesn't get the active class anymore.
