A UI idea on how to merge boosting with up/downvote buttons into one unified voting system in a visual way ( kbin.social )

Artemis might use a swipe gesture to visually hint at the relation between upvoting and boosting, as shown in the main animation. Here's a static app mockup with both swipe levels displayed. I'd also imagine that there should be a setting that auto-upvotes posts when boosting.

Really cool design, would it be snappy? I mean if you slide a bit it snaps to an upvote, so it's easier to choose the action you want to perform.

I for sure will be deleting my account soon. Twitter became filled with spam recently, nothing interesting left to do there.

You're right.

Artemis private beta rollouts have begun! ( kbin.social )

Hi there, the Artemis private beta rollout has just started! @hariette will be emailing 50 signup sheet users, while @lilkev will be adding 50 users from Artemis Discord. The order will be based on the submissions to the private beta signup form, as well as general activity within the Artemis community....

It's sad, but it seems to me you adapted to the fediverse, I see you on my frontpage every time I check it, great content, good job!

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I wonder if other official subreddits will stop being official

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I would like to know why, why is it that chill people came here and why most of the awful people stayed there

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

That's a great way to filter people in some way. I wonder for how long this will last. I'm not saying it can't be permanent but I'm sure at some point it will attract awful people

The numbers for the r/mildlyinteresting vote haven't been openly available and I think that they are important to spread. ( lemmy.ml )

Reddit has called moderators actions “malicious” and against the wishes of the community members. The numbers tell a different story. These are COMMUNITY protests and marking them otherwise is simply misinformation from reddit staff....

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

When spez says "We don't want to show NSFW to users" they mean they don't care how many users voted, they are saying "We don't want to give a bad impression to users that will use Reddit no matter what".
They just don't care about anything else that isn't money, if they could replace Reddit users with tiktok users they would be thrilled, even if they lose 12+ year old accounts with thousands of comments.
With this I'm not saying the protest is useless, it has the power to basically kill Reddit if enough users participate in it.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

You should definitely change it now, before something happens.

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Amazing news, all the interest on kbin is honestly amazing

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I would definitely eat this. I'm sure at first it will be expensive, but once is available I would make the switch to this.

@hariette is working on one called Artemis!
Here's the magazine: https://kbin.social/m/ArtemisApp

Reddit activated a word filter that whenever you say "fuck spez", your comment won't show up for anyone else. I just tested it on ModCoord. they're also deleting spez memes from the subs they nuked lol ( kbin.social )

r/ModCoord: The admins in charge of demodded subreddits are mass-removing images of Huffman previously shared on them...

lixus98 , (edited )
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Wow, seems like spez is from the same breed as Elon "Thin-skinned" Musk, no surprises there really. I love to imagine how hurt he is because everyone is saying that to him lol.

lixus98 , (edited )
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

"boost" is a mastodon term, it's used there as a "retweet" so you just basically "retweeted" the comment, this only shows up on the "Microblog" tab.

lixus98 , (edited )
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Congratulations!, I hope they don't restore your comments, they really don't deserve them.

All mods of /r/self and /r/shittylifeprotips were removed and suspended for 7 days without any warning first. ( kbin.social )

We toggled to 18+ and sort of let nature take its course by only enforcing TOS. I say "we" but in reality I was the only active mod on either sub, so I do feel bad for getting awkwardtheturtle banned by association (lol). After the fact got the "It’s not ok to show people NSFW content when they don’t want to see it....

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I also made a similar bot, might be useful!, this one doesn't check every single post, only external links, I didn't want to repost original content or spam communities, so the post only gets one post per hour (which can be changed) and checks the community to see if there's a similar post there already (same link).

Edit: it uses the json page, and filters posts based on upvotes, downvotes, age, etc. It supports multiple subreddits and communities at the same time.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

It should, since it's all federated a lemmy account can post on kbin

lixus98 , (edited )
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

You are right, I already had a scraper in progress, if it comes down to it I will use that instead.
Edit: also you can contribute if you want to, suggestions are 100% open.

lixus98 , (edited )
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I see, I used node bc that's what I'm most familiarized with. I'm running it from Digitalocean and seems to be stable for now.
But if you have different requirements you should definitely give making one a go.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

The bot you are talking about is archiving many posts from reddit, I have one running too, but mine is intended for mods that need to mirror content from their subreddit (only external links, like news) to a magazine or community.
Here's the link if someone needs it: https://github.com/daniel-lxs/BotIt

/kbin server update - or how the server didn't blow up ( kbin.social )

Currently, on the main instance, people have created 40191 accounts (+214 marked as deleted). I don't know how many are active because I don't monitor it, but once again, I greet all of you here :) In recent days, the traffic on the website has been overwhelming. It's definitely too much for the basic docker-compose setup,...

Nice work! I can't imagine what would happen if a hobby project of mine is suddenly used by 35k users, it would be insanely stressful, keep it up, we are loving it here.

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Nope, we are at 35k+

Why do some Lemmy community not show up in magazine search (others on same instance do)? ( kbin.social )

Yesterday I learned about https://lemmy.ca/c/ontario_community_directory (edit: I got a wrong link somewhere -- this one should have been https://lemmy.ca/c/ontario_index) and my local city sub of https://lemmy.ca/c/waterloo. I can't find them in magazine search (eg, https://kbin.social/magazines?q=waterloo). They're not brand...

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I personally saw someone working on fixing the links so you can just click on them, hopefully we get some form of autosearch when the magazine is not federated

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I migh be able to help with these types of links, look for the kbin link extension, it's available for Firefox and chrome.
It's an extension I made to help with this situation.
More info here: https://github.com/daniel-lxs/kbin-link

📢Entire mod team on r/mildlyinteresting (and more subs) removed and locked out of their accounts after changing their rules upon community's request. (They're also switching subs BACK to SFW) ( kbin.social )

EDIT: GO DM MODS OF YOUR FAVORITE SUBREDDITS AND POLITELY ASK ABOUT MIGRATION!: something as simple as "Hey, I love this community but I no longer use reddit, will you guys be making a community on Kbin or other alternatives? Let me know please, thanks." will work!! We need more voices encouraging migration!...

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Wow, I never thought I'd see the day where Reddit would remove entire mod teams.
I guess they were right when they said:

The r/WatchRedditDie moderator team regrets to inform our community that we have, in fact, watched Reddit die...

Reddit died and we watched it.

Are those butter flavored?

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

This looks amazing! I believe kbin will look really good in the near future

@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Meta's incursion in the fediverse might cause very bad effects, there's nothing preventing them from spitting ads from their new platform to all other platforms compatible with it.
I really hope that if we come to that, admins will defederate immediately.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

This is what I fear the most tbh

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Welcome, don't be scared of asking something!

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Only if you are in the Microblog tab, since it treats every post as something more akin to a tweet. However it shouldn't show up on the Threads tab.
Also, you can't collapse comments at the moment, however the feature is being developed.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Great news!, if kbin implements a lemmy-like api (which is being discussed) this app would be entirely compatible as well!

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

A kbin API is in the works, if we manage to make it compatible with lemmy this app would be usable for kbin as well.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

If you want to follow from kbin go to https://kbin.social/m/syncforlemmy@lemmy.world
Also you can use my browser extension and just click on the icon:

Amazing to see the growth, we went from 60 to 36k in a week.

[META] Creating a new community is easy, but to get people on board, you need to create some content.

If you create a community, please try and populate it with content. I see a lot of new communities with 0-1 posts from the mod. That’s not nearly enough to get people engaged - users are going to see that it’s a ghost town and leave....

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

If you want to crosspost content from reddit automatically use: https://github.com/daniel-lxs/BotIt,
It's intended for links and I wouldn't encourage using it for anything else cause you know, stealing content from others is not good.
But if you need a link aggregator for your community this might do it.

Edit: this is a work in progress, so expect bugs.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

Devs (like me) can help, the main issue is hosting the bot somewhere and covering the costs, but I think is a good idea.

lixus98 ,
@lixus98@kbin.social avatar

I will take a look at the technical side, I want to know how easy it is to make something like this. I won't make promises but if manage to get something working I'll let you know.
