Reddit refugee I guess? You might know me from a certain daily chat thread in certain subreddit (that is now private). Profile picture is a dark elf just like the last time, but instead of a snoo, it's an actual dark elf from Skyrim :p

This profile is from a federated server and may be incomplete. View on remote instance

What features you may be missing from reddit would you like to see? ( kbin.social )

What the title says. I think the site needs to reach critical mass sooner rather than later, and on top of the relatively low activity for now, we want to avoid obstacles to new migration, even if it's small convenience stuff. So, what would make your life easier as a kbin user?...

I don't know, but to me this isn't really dull. I wonder if it is matched with actual current events? Like, for example, if an earthquake, and similar hashtags will show on trending section

Android, simply because how more free I am using it. I can side-load APK files for example, unlike iOS.

Jerma985 I think

I definitely don't see any kind of negative things from his community

I forgot that kbin also has microblog feature, that allows me Tweet. Haha. Maybe if I'm listening to the music I like, I'll post it here. Usually Radiohead

Tell HN: Nearly all of Evernote’s remaining staff has been laid off | Hacker News ( news.ycombinator.com )

Its acquirer (Bending Spoons) has taken over operations. They’ve also hiked subscriptions prices and told customers they intend to use new revenues to pay for new features. How they intend to do that without any staff is something I would like to know about....

Let me introduce you to my note-taking setup.

  • Create a new folder, and add a note by creating a markdown file or .txt file
  • Edit it using Notepad, or even better, Obsidian.md
  • Synchronize it using Syncthing (on Windows, you can use SyncTrazor, which is basically a UI for Syncthing), add as many devices as possible

That's it. You always own your own files, and there's no more worry about cloud services going down

TIL about Livesync, interesting plugin!

Maybe one day when I have my own server and finally able to self-host something, I will use that.

If it’s the sort of thing that conceptually can be run on a raspberry pi and use less than 1% of that little CPU, it’s not something I want to pay every month for.

OOT, is Raspi really capable of self-hosting, and is running things like this really that lightweight?

Notion is so good, but damn, it cannot be used offline I think, that's a major dealbreaker to me

I only use it to share texts in team environment (college group projects, work, etc)

    @Jeze3D ahhh... That subreddit back when I was still on reddit was annoying as hell haha. I dont necessarkly disagree with them... They re just annoying

    stackPeek OP ,
    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    They 100% rushed launching it, after looking at how elno screwed things in Twitter. There's no better time to launch this, now or never. I think

    stackPeek OP ,
    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    There’s no feed for only people you follow

    That's like the most basic feature in any social media LOL why did they ditch it

    Like i said before, the definitely rushed the launch

    stackPeek OP ,
    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    I also found out that the account is tied to existing Instagram account... and from what I seen, you can't delete the Threads account, only "deactivate". I suspect this is why they can't launch this in EU? Anyway, looking at how limited the features are, this app is a pass for me

    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    Well damn. Those upvote-bait posts is the most childish thing in Reddit and one of the things I hoped I wouldn't see in Kbin/Lemmy. Disappointed....

    gentleman , to Ask Kbin

    How do I block a magazine? My feed is over run with shitposts

    stackPeek ,
    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    @gentleman go to said community, then find the subscribe button. Besides that there should be abutton for blocking a magazine

    Probably controversial opinion , but kbin should stay mascotless

    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    @FlashPossum hmmm I actuallly thought Kbin's logo is really good

    @Eigengrau

    Are lots of websites really going downhill and/or closing or does it just seem like it to me? ( kbin.social )

    Like many people I'm here because of reddit going to shit. Twitter has increasingly been shit. gycat is shutting down in September. To me it seems like lots of bastions of social media are crumpling, but as a previous active reddit user, I've been personally effected. Is this just a frequency illusion or has something changed in...

    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    Doesn't need to be WordPress btw. For example, I made my blog using Jekyll with my own theme. Probably way more cheaper as it's only a static site, no need for database, only bunch of markdown files.

    God-Is-Love , to Ask Kbin

    Is it possible to stop the screen from rotating on the Kbin app when my phone rotates? I have my phone settings so it shouldn't rotate from vertical to horizontal but for some reason only the app does it, anyone know if this can be turned off?

    stackPeek ,
    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    @God idk, but I feel like this can be fixed by changing the default screen orientation on the manifest.json file

    Without looking at comments, I already know there's going to be this kinda comment lol

    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...

    @stackPeek@kbin.social avatar

    The way they handle made me sick. Reddit will never be the same again for me.

    Assuming we are still talking about OC, there's also a feature to mark a post as "OC" on Reddit too.
