RTR#52 Busy month (kbin.social)

This month, I managed to wrap up many overdue matters. It seems to me that I responded to the majority of lingering emails, and a few issues turned out to be so important that they took a few extra days. I also dealt with [a certain aspect related to the project, about which I'll be able to share more in a few weeks....

Glad to hear you're okay. Hospital stuff is never fun. I hope you get well soon, and that the worst is behind you.

I just use it to bring awareness to similar magazines/communities across the fediverse

What is going on with kbin - a week has passed with no sign of any life (kbin.melroy.org)

I know some of you consider this as documented whining. I hear you but won't stop sharing my opinion and reminding. I recommend continuing commenting on the original post to keep it a bit organized (this post is a link to it)...

Agreed, every post I see from them further paints them as very childish and desperate for attention.

It's not one week of inactivity, is has been going on for months

Looks at 2 months straight of kbin devlogs since October, when the man was having pretty significant personal issues

Not to mention he was: recently sick; tended to financial issues, and personal matters; formalities relating to the project. This isn't even mentioning that he communicated this in the devlog magazine. Or the fact that he has implemented suggestions multiple times at the request of the community to enhance QoL, and allowed users to have agency in making mod contributions.

You might want to take your own advice. This has also allowed me to revise my earlier statement. You people are actually insane.

defaming them without due diligence, think about that before continuing

The irony here is unbelievable rofl you can't make this up. My previous statement was calling you childish and desperate for attention. Thanks for reminding me of that fact, so I can stop wasting my time. It is very clear you're not interested in a genuine and constructive conversation.

I've only felt the need to change distros once, from Linux Mint to EndeavourOS, because I wanted Wayland support. I realize there were ways to get Wayland working on Mint in the past, but I've already made the switch and have already gotten used to my current setup. I personally don't feel like I'm missing out by sticking to one distro, tbh. If you're enjoying Mint, I'd suggest to stick with it, unless another distro fulfills a specific need you can't get on Mint.

Utagawa Hiroshige is one of the most widely recognized Japanese artists. Although he was also active as a painter, he is best known for his designs for woodblock prints. He and his publishers took advantage of a burgeoning new interest in travel in early nineteenth-century Japan, creating many massive series of landscape prints on particular themes. His picturesque compositions helped popularize Japanese prints abroad, and particularly influenced European painters in the late nineteenth century.

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

I've been using kbin since the Reddit exodus and I still don't really know the path to finding my way into a specific community/magazine I've subscribed to. I usually search for the name using the search function, then hope I find a thread from there in the results where I can just click directly into it. Surely there must be a...

You could make a (private) collection for your subscribed magazines. Not exactly the feature you were asking for, but it's an option to curate your feed. On Firefox I have various collections bookmarked and tagged so accessibility is seamless.

Resident Evil 2 (2019) is now included in the Xbox Game Pass (www.polygon.com)

Resident Evil 2 was released in 2019, and it exemplifies the best of Capcom’s work to revitalize its older survival horror games. The game sees dual protagonists Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy responding to the zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, with an interlocking narrative that warrants repeat playthroughs as both...

RTR#50 Plans for the upcoming week (kbin.social)

Lately, I've been dealing with a slight fever associated with the beginning of the year. I'm trying to ensure that everything runs fairly smoothly. Today and tomorrow, I need to focus on planning finances for the upcoming year and handle formalities related to the project. In the following days, I'll implement changes to fix...

To those genuinely interested in moderating (kbin.social)

@Ernest has pushed an update which allows users to request ownership/moderation of abandoned magazines. Ghost/abandoned magazines were fairly prevalent after the initial wave of hype due to users either squatting magazine names or becoming inactive for other reasons. Now is your chance to get involved, if you were waiting to do...

Since @ernest is the owner for that magazine, I think moderator requests have to go through him. Unfortunately, he was dealing with a slight fever awhile ago, and has been dealing with financial planning and project formalities awhile back as well. Hopefully things haven't gotten worse. For what it's worth, I think it's great you're eager to contribute. There have definitely been some spam issues recently. I hope a solution can be found soon. Maybe even something like posts which have a <10% upvote-to-downvote ratio over a day/week can be temporarily quarantined until an admin approves of it. Anyways, best of luck with modship.
