Maybe I should block Threads on my instance...? Let's see how this goes..

Works on my instance? Using the Tokyo theme.

@onyx ah I see! That's a hidden feature 🎂

Will migrating to another instance be possible in the future? (kbin.social)

Just like on Mastodon, that all my subscriptions and all can be migrated? It's not a priority right now probably, but I was just thinking as more instances pop up in the future that migrating would be a nice option to have. Like I said probably not a important right now, but I was just curious

@Lunyan yes, I should be a feature in the future. Just like you said, similar to Mastodon. It should be possible to easily migrate your account. I think it's important so the user is in control.

They are blocking kbin so often lately. I added this domain to my block list.

@Very_Bad_Janet I'm still unable to see twitter replies / comments.

@bioemerl
@Very_Bad_Janet @ThatOneKirbyMain2568 if that was true. You can block Google user agent. Or deploy a robots.txt file, which they have: https://twitter.com/robots.txt

I'm also unable to see comments. They are very good at killing twitter. @ThatOneKirbyMain2568

The real reason that this is done, is to avoid users to index and scrape the website. Allowing to workaround the api rate limits. Twitter is ded.

Be kind. This is a scary and exciting time for the Fediverse. It’s been almost a year with very little rest for the developers, system administrators, and community managers who keep it running. The people building this place are tired, so be nice. They’re carrying a lot.

I can't agree more! Let's have some respect for each other and be kind. Otherwise, you are better off with Twitter or Reddit ;)

@ernest It says "Provide only if you want content from the fediverse to be included in this magazine based on tags". But if a user post a thread in the magazine, will it then also use the tags to basically "cross-post"? Or is it just getting/retrieving (instead of also pushing).

Is there a reason why not include all those features in Kbin directly by submitting a PR :)? That would be ideal, right?

Thanks. I'm the author of the wiki, as you can see at the top of that page.

I'll change it.

@czech there is a pr to keep this markdown file in sync again with the wiki page.

Indeed. And it didn't improve very well lately..

@Teppic I think I did..

@Teppic Yea, so for the folks who are thinking what is going on. I was checking whether Kbin is correctly escaping HTML/JS code from the body content when posting a thread or post. If this code create a button on your kbin instance with a pop-up alert, you should really upgrade your kbin instance indeed. As you stated correctly, this is very innocent code can't do any harm. However, if you are very handy you could do all kind of HTML or JS injection into this site. Without people / users even noticing.

melroy OP Admin ,

Thanks you for your compassion.

melroy OP Admin ,
melroy avatar

@Mic_Check_One_Two Actually it was just since recently the case. Kbin used to escape the content, of course.. But after an upgrade to a newer Markdown parser version, it was overlooked in a PR.

We are recently approved for the Codeberg CI, hopefully allowing us to setup a good CI/CD pipeline. Avoiding these kind of regressions in the first place. Kbin is still in beta.

Hopefully these studies will eventually find a way to fix my Tinnitus. Which drives me crazy since 2013 already.. And it getting increasing worse over time.

Kbin replaces Reddit for me.

@activator90
@Yoz Long story..

@float
@Yoz @activator90 Well, Lemmy.ml blocks kbin instances. Which is not cool, try to avoid that instance.

    @uhvayga seems to work on my instance. https://kbin.melroy.org/search?q=Kbin+search+option

    Meaning this is indeed a problem on kbin.social. Could you please report it to our codeberg.org issue list? https://codeberg.org/Kbin/kbin-core/issues

    melroy Admin ,

    Or @ernest seems like a bug in the search of kbin.social.

    Really missing a true "save" ability for posts and comments on kbin (kbin.social)

    I am aware that upvoted posts make it to https://kbin.social/fav however that just doesn't work well as I already have 1,000+ pages in there. Moreover, that only registers upvoted posts and not comments. A workaround would be to just use boost, and only upvote when you want to "save" but that is just not conventional imho. The...

    @frasassi correct I created this ticket already. It's on the todo list.

    @halki
    @PopBobert There is always technology to the rescue! .. But I agree.

    @gk99 I do think that is the best thing to do as well.

    I also got one of those... Constantly asking for attention and meows. Drives me crazy.. still love her.

    I’m back with several more community icons: check out Artemis (future kbin app), Urban Details, 3D Modeling and some other stuff (kbin.social)

    Honestly, I’ve been really enjoying making these, probably the most I’ve been excited to model something for months. So I exchanged some sleep for a faster turnaround :) Previous post here...

    All your designs, incl. the renders on behance.net are awesome! You're definitely a master of your craft. To get to this level, you are truly dedicated and I see the passion and love you put into your work. Very well done!

    It's not a cache issue at your side. It was a configuration issue at kbin.social with Fastly image cache. Causing those 404's. It's now been resolved.

    melroy Admin ,
    melroy avatar

    That is yet another issue. This was an issue with Fastly incorrectly configured, causing 404's on images. The issue has been resolved on kbin.socical by now.
