Has there been a change in sourcing new magazines? Last time I tried it I couldn't get anything to matriculate, at least not kbin style with searching etc. Big turn off for me but otherwise mbin seems like the best fit.

Maybe I should reach out to the person who runs the mbin instance I am on. They were a kbin person before and may have some insight. An mbin version of this meta would be helpful, as mentioned!

This is a good discussion here. I'm sure I am not the only person to have other accounts (an mbin and a lemmy) but I am pretty invested here. But your #1 option has some relavent points.

Edit to add I have been digging the microblogs and miss that from what I can see on mbin. Maybe my error. I can't even find them.

I'm seeing more microblog posts (kbin.social)

Is anyone else? One of the reasons I was interested in /kbin over other options was this feature, but I don't remember seeing them on subscribed or all. Is this new? I'm kind of intimidated by it but ultimately know I want to interact. I'm seeing some cool stuff! It's all on magazines I have subscribed to.

I'm not sure, it is set there now but I no longer see the posts... Must be a setting somewhere.

Same also. It made the PWA broken when I tried using it earlier. Maybe change my default view on the browser now. No other problems!

I am definitely not qualified for instance level moderation, but may be for a magazine. Is that part of what you are looking for? I did put a request in for one a ways back, but perhaps am not qualified for that, either. It would be a good step i think. But I don't know. I can go thru the abandoned list again.

/kbin another quick update (kbin.social)

Good morning, last week we managed to address pressing issues related to infrastructure. Thank you once again for your assistance, Piotr. I will continue work in this area, but it will be less invasive and cumbersome. I have restored the test environments and am slowly getting back into coding....

I see a little arrow device but cannot get it to do anything. But I am using the PWA right now.

Thanks also @piotrsikora!

Ya some things seem to not be federating right now for some reason. I can still see them, tho. Older threads.

@rhythmisaprancer@kbin.social avatar

Good, I appreciate your history posts!

/kbin March update (kbin.social)

I'm feeling a bit better. Starting today, I'll be returning to work as much as possible. This week will likely be spent catching up on tasks, replying to emails, reading overdue comments, etc. I also need to work with Piotr on instance infrastructure. I'll be more actively handling spam as well, but it's clear that we need...

It's good to see you posting again. Many of us are willing to do things to help out as our skills allow 🙂 Be well.

Ernest needs to quickly delegate or this instance will quickly die (kbin.social)

I appreciate that earnest made a post yesterday, or maybe it was the day before, saying that he is not dead and hasn't given up on kbin. It's not on this magazine, so I'm not sure where it was since this seems to be the most appropriate one, but in any case....

rhythmisaprancer,
@rhythmisaprancer@kbin.social avatar

I agree that it would probably be helpful to have more than one person running the program, but I also understand it can be hard to let a project go. I really like kbin, but will admit I set up another account elsewhere. It isn't as nice as kbin. I don't know rust but will definitely step up to moderate! Learning new things is good. I'll do it. Happily 🙂

RE: Is Ernest still here? (kbin.social)

I check in here quite often, but for now, I'm just focusing on clearing spam and keeping the instance alive. In January, I was working on the AP module, and there has been significant progress in the work, which hasn't been publicly published yet. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the year, I developed a skin condition that...

Thanks for checking in, @ernest ! I think you have a pretty devoted community, let us know how we can help. Be well.

Are there some key magazines that need it? I will step up, if only to play whack a mole as I understand it.

rhythmisaprancer,
@rhythmisaprancer@kbin.social avatar

Ya I've perused the list, but there doesn't seem to be overlap. Maybe I should just grab one, any one, to get the hang of it.

rhythmisaprancer,
@rhythmisaprancer@kbin.social avatar

We could at least offload some work from Ernest

rhythmisaprancer,
@rhythmisaprancer@kbin.social avatar

I'm not sure how to request that one since it has an active owner. I did request another that was available.

rhythmisaprancer,
@rhythmisaprancer@kbin.social avatar

I don't have anything to add but appreciate you beginning the discussion. It seems that all instances will periodically face this issue; perhaps it would be good to have a proactive plan on place for when it becomes relentless.

rhythmisaprancer,

What all is involved on moderating? I haven't gotten involved in any of that, I come from a bulletin board back ground, not reddit, but I am sure I am not the only person without a relevant background who is willing to be helpful in some capacity. It will just all be new. But it seems like having a warm body to delete posts could help a lot!

rhythmisaprancer,
@rhythmisaprancer@kbin.social avatar

You can report a post. It will even tell you if it has already been reported. I do not know who receives this report. I report and then block this type of thing.

I can't believe this King of Kong dude is still around, holy cow what a butt.

I'm not sure what KES is but if I just scroll a bit then what u want to read or what I am writing is clear of the arrow. I don't use the arrow and am indifferent to it but I imagine others may like it. I use the PWA.

That's my solution 🙂

Progressive web app. You install it from your browser, and it runs from your browser, but you get a special icon to launch it. Probably more To it than that, but that's the most I think I know enough to say haha!

I don't remember the price, and Mom almost certainly paid for it, but Faxanadu. First game I ever beat, got an emulator and sought it out on a rom when those came out, and most recently played it at an arcade that had a bunch of older games loaded onto a "TV" with real controllers. Hadn't used that kind of controller for a long time.
