Yep there's a backlog, the admin @ernest posted about it somewhere. I guess he's worked on migrating the server.

Yeah I would need to get some good use out of it to justify.

Boat. It's always been a dream of mine.

I think it's useful to have 1 community on kbin and 1 on lemmy so that we can develop our individual identities and atmospheres. But you are right @Loki I think there's probably no need for 2 on kbin right now.

Looking forward to seeing you all over at m/dryherbvapes!

Thanks for pointing out, I've updated the how-to. Hopefully that covers it.

Please can you share a screenshot?

Here's what I see what I select the burger menu while on the magazine.

Maybe your screen size or text size is different to mine though.

Thanks! Let me know any feedback :)

Thanks! I was considering making a separate guide for mods and just linking it from here, because it's already pretty long.

Yes that's right, it's the 'tags' menu in the 'magazine panel'.

Ah ok thanks I understand now. Unfortunately there is no zero-click solution that I know of. The only thing I can offer is the one-click burger menu solution.

I'm putting together a wishlist so I'll add it there :)

Thanks for the long and thoughtful comment. This is really helpful. I will do my best to take on board your points over the next few days.

No but it's a frequently requested functionality. I think it would be great :)

How to add a community from the Fediverse if it does not appear when you search for it in kbin:

Select the site search option (magnifying glass icon at the top), and search for the community using communityname@domain format.

It will then be available via the standard magazine search function for you and any future users.

@Akilou This is what I get when I follow the steps in the OP. Do you not get the same?

How to block an entire domain (i.e. all communities it hosts):

Unfortunately there's no way of doing this yet without actually viewing the domain itself momentarily, other than turning off federation completely.

In your browser's address bar type the following, replacing 'domain' with the domain name you wish to block:

https://kbin.social/d/domain

Once you are in the domain, its front page will appear. Immediately follow the same steps as you would to block a magazine or user.

If you wish to avoid accidentally stumbling across some extremely vile, distressing, and possibly even illegal content, I highly recommend blocking the following domain: lemmynsfw.com

@ApollosArrow OK thanks, let me know if any more show up and we can report to @ernest

How to get back to the kbin homepage:

Select the burger menu icon (three horizontal lines in the top left corner), and tap the home icon on the right.

Desktop users: click the kbin icon instead.

@btaf45 Yeah it's mobile only. You can just click the kbin icon instead. I'll edit some of these to mention that.

How to see a list of all the magazines you are subscribed to:

Select your username in the top right, choose 'Settings' (or 'Profile') from the dropdown, and (on mobile) scroll to the right on the horizontal menu and select 'subscriptions'.

@pathos. You should see a guide. What do you see?

OC Welcome to m/dryherbvapes! Come on in to this thread and introduce yourself, tell us what kit you are enthusiastic about at the moment, or just make small talk.

Hi everyone. I'm a long time smoker but only recently got into #dryherbvapes so when I first joined kbin and I saw there was no community yet I immediately set one up. Since then a couple of other fellow communities have sprouted up but we need to support each other so we can all flourish, so check out the sidebar where I have...

Welcome!!! What's your favourite vape? And do you use a waterpiece? I'm looking to get one for my mighty as a friend of mine struggles with the higher temps

Friend,
Friend avatar

I just bought a globe bubbler so looking forward to running my mighty plus through water, though not sure I'd need ice for that. Have you tried a water pipe? What's it like through the bong?

OC v3pro didn't achieve full extraction with sticky bud

Took my v3pro down the beach yesterday and it was the first time I've tried packing it with a stickier bud. Perhaps I packed it a little too much because the very middle was still greenish despite pumping it up to max temp for an extended period. Looks like the heat didn't penetrate that much. And it wasn't hitting as well as I...

Thanks. I am definitely learning to pack more loosely.
