The vibe when you're a 30 year old software developer and still could never afford a house in this economy....

I only use it for finding information or how tos for stuff that just doesn't have the community or information backlog on Kbin. Lots of guides for how to install stuff on the Steam Deck on Reddit, for example. Most of my friends still use reddit so I'll read any links they post too, but my primary social media is Kbin

The games industry needs to slow down. There's just too much.

@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

@jahed It's one of, if not the, biggest industries in entertainment. I don't think it'll slow down any time soon. People need to start advocating financially for better games.

It's very quiet in my local community one. Mostly just me posting about interesting stuff I hear about in my town, though I have a few people following and liking things... which is cool? I really miss the my local community subreddits, so my hope is someday others from my town stumble onto it and we can all hang out online instead of in person like a real community.

This game really was a lot of fun. Honestly wasn't ever expecting to read about it again lmao

I have been having a ton of fun playing Everspace 2. I've also been jumping between that, Freelancer, and Endless Sky. On a bit of a space game kick. Definitely recommend all 3!!

It's a bit frustrating! I've asked the kbin matrix chat about it too hopefully someone knows what's up

rodhlann OP ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

Not being able to see newest for this magazine is rough. I really like to keep up with the updates and issues people are reporting

rodhlann OP ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

It isn't happening for me anymore it seems. Perhaps a hiccup?

rodhlann OP ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

I was having the issue consistently today until about 30 mins ago, so hopefully we're over the hump

rodhlann OP ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

Same 🤕

rodhlann OP ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

I believe so, but I continue to get logged out so I'll double check the next time it happens 👍

rodhlann OP ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

@ernest definitely still happening with checking remember me selected as of this morning

Been playing the beta version with controller support for a few weeks and it's pretty good! I had a better control scheme already working using the deck controls, but this is really good for being able to just pick up and play the game on deck!

You can also see your subscriptions under Settings, which is my preferred spot

"The magazine from the federated server may be incomplete. Browse more on the original instance."

I dont understand this issue. Why is it taking a week in some cases for some text or image from another server to make it here? Is it bottlenecking somewhere? If so how do posts from other servers get here in seconds?

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

@blazera I believe this message is due to the fact that the timeline for these federated magazines is only from the point at which it was added to Kbin. There's no historical context (and never will be) for that federated magazine. This warning is letting you know that there may be more content in the originating instance. (please correct me if I'm wrong!)

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

@ernest @blazera I see the issue now. That's unfortunate! I hope we are able to work with the lemmy.ml folks to figure out what the issue is there! Seems like an interesting problem to solve if we're accidentally causing them unwanted traffic

@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

Is there any way to get notifications when a Person I follow creates a new Thread or Post? Looks like there's a similar setting for when a Magazine gets a new post, but I think individual posts from users I care about are much more likely to get lost in the shuffle or be something I care about, specifically

rodhlann OP ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

Something similar for posts in Magazine I moderate, or maybe Magazines I specifically flag for notifications would be helpful also

We really need a way to block communities on mobile without having to actually enter them. ( kbin.social )

I’m sure there are ways to do this on desktop, but in mobile, as far as I can tell, if I come across a nsfw community on my thread and I want to block I, I can’t do that without first clicking on the link to the community feed.

On mobile web it's rough too because you have to scroll all the way down to get to the block button

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

Oh cool! That's good to know, at least

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

This is helpful! We need something like this for domains for sure

Garlic is the only answer for me. I double the garlic quantity in any recipe that calls for it. It's just so good

Would love to see the results of this survey! It was well thought out and it'd be interesting to see what the trends looked like

Does the fediverse need to consume all of the traffic that's currently directed at other platforms? I think the best thing about the Fediverse is that it provides more options for online social spaces.

If I don't like Twitter I can try something else. If I don't like Reddit I can go elsewhere. It doesn't have to be the exact same thing as those services, as long as it provides me an enjoyable way to consume information in my free time.

I don't feel like the goal is to absorb all of the traffic from every other site though? Or if it is that seems misguided.

I'm very much enjoying my time on Kbin, even if it is janky and new and imperfect. All of that is actually kind of refreshing

Is anyone else mildly annoyed that people posting on the fediverse act like only people in their own instance can see their posts? ( kbin.social )

I keep seeing posts title “Lemmy, what are your thoughts on…” or “Beehaw, do you think is…” etc, as if nobody from any other instance is reading.

Lemmy shows a little Fediverse icon when showing posts from an external instance, and I think all fediverse servers should do the same. It makes it was easier to quickly discern whether or not something is coming from your instance.

Is there any federated interaction between BookWyrm and Kbin? Can I follow book or author updates or keep up with reviews or conversation?

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

I was hoping that because Kbin does support mastodon posts it might work. I'd love to see that integration

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

This is exactly the problem I had! I wish it wouldn't hide the normal magazines button, it's more accessible than All Magazines, which took me forever to notice

Kbin and Lemmy should come to a consensus on how to name stuff

Is there really a reason, for example, for there to be the distinction of "magazine" and "community"? When you're federating, the same features should be called the same, if close enough. That way everyone can talk with everyone about stuff and we all immediately understand each other....

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

I feel like it's going to take awhile for people used to Facebook / Twitter / Reddit / Etc to get used to having multiple platforms that cater to the exact same audience. Lemmy / Kbin basically do the same thing, with slightly different minor features. Most people aren't used to having options.

That said I feel like having some standardized naming across the fediverse wouldn't hurt with things that are synonymous, if that's not already happening. There's a valid argument for magazines and communities not being the same thing

rodhlann ,
@rodhlann@kbin.social avatar

A lot of the posts are coming from lemmynsfw.com, which is a domain you can block. Unfortunately you have to navigate to their Kbin domain page, but you should be able to block them completely there.

I think it's something like kbin.social/d/lemmynsfw.com, and you just block it like a magazine or a user.

Definitely wishing there was a way to block without having to navigate there, you're definitely in for an eyefull
