I'm still not quite sure if I should choose thread or photo when posting an image on mbin / kbin...

Have you even tried #Piefed? Piefed.social is:
"A lemmy/kbin clone written in Python with Flask.

-Clean, simple code that is easy to understand and contribute to. No fancy design patterns or algorithms.
-Easy setup, easy to manage - few dependencies and extra software required.
-First class moderation tools."

It's actually really quite nice, and I don't hear much noise about it. Go give this project a look at https://piefed.social.

Over 8 months ago now, I started using the Fediverse, messing around with different instances.

I'm glad I've found a pretty good instance of Mastodon.social instead of using Lemmy, Kbin / Mbin or other things like PixelFed.

I'm not saying I'll not use these in the future, but I want a main account for the Fediverse to help bring family and friends in as well as learn the basics & complex parts of the fediverse.

Who knows what I'll see & do.

I want a new account:

  • on a cool domain that is short and doesn't contain the word lemmy
  • has not been caught up in too much federation drama so is able to participate widely across the network
  • does not have open registrations
  • will stick around for a long time
  • does not end in .social or a domain owned by the taliban

If you haven't heard, sadly, , one of the popular “groups” platform, is shutting down “probably” on February 29th.

In an email they sent to admins, the owner and developer can no longer support https://chirp.social financially as they failed to find a new job after they were laid off by last year.

So, if you have a Chirp.Social groups, either move to (https://a.gup.pe) (as suggested by Chirp.Social), or if I may, to (https://fedia.io), an [flagship] instance.

This reminds us the importance of having a built-in groups feature, and one where the groups feature actually federates.

Back in 2008, when the was born, we did have a built-in federated groups in / (today known as ). We used bang (!) instead of at (@). A built-in groups feature is more stable as established instances can host them.

Today, we have and (as well as -based instances) to fill in that, as groups is a built-in feature in those software products. It's just a matter of finding an instance that's open to hosting groups for any topic for the ActivityPub protocol.

That said, any Friendica, Hubzilla, Streams-based instances you suggest for groups?

Testing out #mbin because I just couldn't stand the timeout errors on #kbin anymore. Does anyone know if mbin pulls in upline changes from kbin, or is it a hard fork at this point?

TIL the phrase "cookie licking" from !

What it boils down to is having assigned yourself an ownership of the task way forward, resulting in a figurative cookie being licked. Of course, now nobody wants to touch this task/cookie with a 10 m foot pole, because any more collaboration from other parties is essentially obstructed.

I am guilty of trapping myself in a few such situations: job, making and stopping on 90% for a new logo for , etc. I wanna learn from these mistakes and give as less cues of ownership as possible. There really isn't much to do to be excellent to each other, unlike to be some hotshot contributor. But as sayings go: the genius is in simple, and one should find beauty in simple.

Die ursprünglichen #Forum'e im #Internet gelten schon länger als #veraltet und die scheinbare alternative Lösung #Reddit hat nun #KI integriert und schnuppern die #User aus. Die wahre #Alternative finden wir wieder im Fediverse und sind ua #kbin / #Mbin so wie #Lemmy. Ja das #Fediverse ist viel mehr als nur #Mastodon und Co und kommuniziert nicht nur auf einem Server, sondern in der #Community (ihr kennt es evt schon)

Large AI company is paying about $60 million for access to Reddit (YOUR content) so it can train its AI models

Fediverse does have open source alternatives like lemmy, kbin, mbin etc that you can try

Looking forward to collab in the near future.

It’s crazy how much of the comments about #Subllinks on the threadiverse are mad that the author is using #Java or just complaining that they chose to build another implementation.

Most of it seems to be #Lemmy users who think that #kbin, #mbin, #piefed, etc don’t exist and no other federated link aggregator should exist.

@kyonshi You can check out devlog at https://kbin.social/m/kbinDevlog to see new updates at kbin

There's also #mbin, #kbin fork, you can check it out too

threads on mbin totally lack clear arrangement > maybe i am spoiled bc of the *keys, kbin & lemmy ...

Radgryd, to kbin

Could someone recommend a working and well-maintained or instance to me? I deleted my Lemmy account because of reasons and I thought kbin looked pretty nice, so I signed up to kbin.cafe only to realise that the last few federated posts are from 2+ weeks ago, lol.

Mbin is a fork of kbin: a decentralized content aggregator running on the Fediverse network (lemmy.ml)

Mbin is a decentralized content aggregator, voting, discussion and microblogging platform running on the fediverse network. It can communicate with many other ActivityPub services, including Kbin, Mastodon, Lemmy, Pleroma, Peertube. It is an open source alternative to other link aggregator services like Reddit.

We're one week into 2024, do you know what that means? Time to clean up your #SNS “following” especially here in the #Fediverse.

  • Check the “dormant” accounts if you can unfollow them.

  • Check which accounts “moved”. Follow their new account, then unfollow their old account.

And maybe there are other accounts that you haven't interacted with in the past few months; and their content is no longer something that you are interested, you can unfollow them too.

If you still want to see their content, you can encourage them to use #hashtags and you follow those hashtags. Or, join a federated “group” like those powered by #Mbin #Kbin #Friendica #Chirp and #Lemmy.

Of course, depending on the fediverse platform your instance is using, there are probably better features to the content of users without seeing their content that is not of interest to you. A good example, #Firefish / #Catodon / #IceShrimp can do that through the “Antenna” feature.

Take some time to do this, and start your 2024 fediverse better than 2023.


Fitik, (edited ) to selfhosted in Do any of you have that one service that just breaks constantly? I'd love to love Nextcloud, but it sure makes that difficult at times

You can try out , it's fork, it has issues too, but at leave there's multiple devs and all of them are active.(And anyone can become a dev, and actually send pull requests that will get merged)
