By the way @ernest, it looks like the API has not been properly set up on kbin.social - probably an issue with the public/private key set up. I got a 500 error attempting to visit /api/entries

I've submitted the second to last PR for review! This PR adds thread and thread comment retrieval, creation, deletion, editing, voting, reporting, and moderation functionality to the API! The last PR will be very similar to this one, except for microblogs!

Didn't you have the API 'complete' like 2 months ago?

Yes, but it did not have any tests written to verify that it worked. These PRs have been resolving that issue so that there can be at least some guarantees that the API works when it gets onto kbin.social and others

(Also, please remember to buy @ernest a coffee if you are able, he's been burning the candle at both ends to support kbin.social and deal with personal business)

Not yet - the API is still being reviewed for integration into the main kbin codebase. artemis.camp is using the prerelease code to test the app. If another kbin instance decides to use the prerelease code I believe it might be able to be used on that instance as well, but I'm not 100% on if that's been implemented by Artemis

kbin's API is coming soon! I've finished up all of the endpoints required for a useful API, so it will enter review soon! The PR is here

This will allow apps like @artemisapp to interact more effectively with kbin!

YSK that a lot of common questions/complaints about Lemmy are presently answered by kbin (kbin.social)

This is not an attempt to convert Lemmy users, nor is it a slight on Lemmy. I'm sure there are plenty of reasons why Lemmy works better for some, and I love the fact that we not only have multiple choices, but multiple choices that allow us to interact with each other regardless! It's amazing. Lemmy is great, no shade....

I've been working on the API, and it is pretty much feature complete (barring feedback) and should be entering review very soon.

The API is on its way though, I've only got a few more endpoints and permissions to add before it will be ready for testing

kbin has the ability to see activity including upvotes, boosts, and downvotes from the UI for entries, comments, and microblogs

Only on kbin, on lemmy that doesn't exist (yet)

I believe those would be posts from kbin users on those Lemmy communities, I noticed the same when I turn of federation

Language filtering is in progress right now, hopefully it can make it soon to help alleviate those pain points - most of my blocklist is due to posts being in languages I don't speak as well

Since 'kbinaut' is a fairly frequently suggested name for people on kbin, a suggestion I have for a bit of extra fun would be to add an astronaut helmet (kbirdnaut?)

Also right birb best birb, but both are very cute

Apollo is getting a spiritual successor for kbin in the form of https://kbin.social/m/ArtemisApp, so you may not have to remember all the formatting rules for long

A feature we'll definitely want to have with kbin in the future is the ability to migrate accounts to other instances. That would mean that even though we're centralizing on kbin.social right now, people could move to other instances and spread the load across the fediverse without losing their history

"Antiwoke" magazin on kbin.social posting bullshit like "how to end Wokeness" and "Time to reject the extrem trans lobby harming our society" How to report ? he is the moderator of that magazin. (calckey.social)

@ernest how do I report a Magazin on kbin.social ? There is a usere called "ps" who is posting to his own "antiwoke" Magazin on kbin.social. Please remove this and dont give them a chance to etablish them self on kbin.social. When I report his stuff it will go to him because he is the moderator of the magazin? Seems like a...

You can block domains if you click on the domain next to the post, go to the sidebar and block it like a magazine

It basically uses the same methods of submitting content as the website does, reading the entirety of the webpage in the process. It's much less efficient than using an API, but it's possible

None of the content from beehaw.org would update on lemmy.world, so if you (a lemmy.world user) subscribed to a beehaw community, no posts would ever be sent unless beehaw refederated lemmy.world. Essentially beehaw's server is not talking to lemmy.world in any way currently

I believe those stats are instance specific - fedia.io's stats show ~17k users while kbin's shows ~120k
