What are badges in kbin (when posting video or photos)
are they like user flairs in reddit?

@kaupas24 i'm pretty sure they are post flairs, so examples might be like "meme" or "news" or "review" used for sorting/filtering within a magazine, just haven't been implemented yet

Tap! I always keep a fresh jug of tapwater in the fridge and use it to refill my water bottle, this way I always have nice cold water. Sparkling is ok too, but for me, that's reserved for a special luxury treat at a restaurant.

In my experience in New Zealand & Australia if you are in a place that is licensed to serve alcohol they have a legal obligation to provide free water, so restaurants will often just bring you a jug or glass bottle of chilled tapwater by default when you are first seated and are happy to provide more if asked! Where I live now it is similar though I don't think it is required by law, they just do it anyway because it is hot af lol

currently trying to drown out the sound of nearby construction with Trespasser, it's working pretty well :)

there is m/FindAKbin and I see someone mentioned a different one (kbin411) as well

Is it difficult for you to complete a project?

Right now I have a project that's been unfinished for over a month. It was something I repaired that didn't work, but I got everything working and now I've lost interest in it. It's still there on my bench all torn apart. It all works, but I just can't bring myself to take that last little step to button it all up....

MothraCultist,

Yes! I have what I call a hobby graveyard for all the projects and hobbies that I lost interest in, got derailed with and felt unable to return to (it is like a mental block), or sometimes don't even know how to finish. Super frustrating! I have ADHD as well though so I figured that was probably what was affecting it for me.

understandable, it's good to know there are people out there willing to make the hard choices in life

If you go to your profile, on the right-hand side close to the top there is a panel with things like join date. Click on "Moderated" and you should see your magazine listed

Clicking the button should keep the dialog box open for upload, weirdly hovering does seem to work for me but maybe that's a browser thing (or it's different for comments, idk)? Upload from url is not working yet if that was what you were trying.

Oh that's a shame, worthwhile bug spotting tho!

Hello everyone. (I made this post on kbin too but it seems like this is the official magazine)

I recently joined this site and started being excited posting my videos on different magazines. But then I just got randomly banned by MothraCultist because I was spamming low effort AI content. I have worked really hard on these videos for months, the content is AI generated, not the creation of it, and I have been posting them slowly on reddit in different subreddits, but I just joined here so I have to post on different ones all together. It is not like I went on a magazine and started spamming, it is all over the site.

If you want this site to grow don't let power hungry people like her just randomly ban people, that is how sites grow, with people excited to spread content. After the initial large posting on different magazines I was planning to just post once or twice a day and be active, but I can no longer do it because I have been banned for 1 year. I find this ridiculous.

If you guys think I am wrong let me know, I just wanted to grow different communities with my content because some of them like ChatGPT literally had 0 posts.

Thank you for reading.

@s804 I'll apologise for both the unnecessary descriptor and the pre-emptive bans, please understand I was seeing someone posting at a very high rate to many different magazines and didn't want to wake up to a big mess in my magazines. I've helped mod other communities before and high posting rate was one of the big red flags for bot behaviour. It was not "random" and you also didn't need to troll my comment history with downvotes in retaliation. I've lifted the bans and apologise for being hasty instead of contacting you first.

@s804 All right well I think we can clear the air and move forward, we both care about the same thing - good community - and I'm glad you are finding the new platform exciting and want to share. Me too! Maybe we can both be more mindful in the future.

@s804 It's ok to get enthusiastic, I have to slow myself down too sometimes (clearly!) You have a good day/night too :)

    @s804 i've responded to this here

    Is there a way to block people or specific magazines so we don't have to see their comments or posts? One thing I really enjoyed about the app I'm leaving is that I can just block users who were annoying or I didn't want to see content wise. Is there a way to do that on kbin?

    MothraCultist,
    MothraCultist avatar

    @TheaoneAndOnly27 So, go to either the page for the magazine or user you want to block, you should see a ᴓ type of symbol which is the block button. On the magazine page it should be just to the right of the subscribe button, and on a user's page it should be just to the right of the follow button. Click that thing and it should go red to indicate your block is successful! Also sometimes it takes a couple seconds to register, just wait it out :)

    I am really hoping I will be able to adopt a cat next year, I have had to move around so much and be in pet-unfriendly places for many years now and really missed having a little friend. Now I just want to be sure I am in a good position to look after them first and part of that job is looking after myself enough, lol. But it is a really good motivation!

    Orange boy would be great but really in my heart I know the cat will choose me, not the other way around :D

    How do you delete a magazine ?

    Hello, I'm very new to this and I thought it would be clever to create magazines of what I liked on reddit before anybody else. But I'm in over my head, I've never moderated anything, I don't understand the microblog and hashtags (never had a twitter or mastondon account). So I would like to delete the magazines I've created (3)...

    MothraCultist,
    MothraCultist avatar

    I think it's temporarily disabled/not yet implemented, ernest can delete them as he is the instance admin but for now maybe your best option is to ask others if they want to come aboard as mods, and hand the keys over to them later on. Perhaps try a thread in /m/ModHelp and/or a pinned thread in your zines asking for help, and y'know, it's ok to feel a bit overwhelmed when you're learning a whole new thing. :)

    Threads, Microblogs, Posts

    What's currently the distinction between these? I created a magazine and wanted to add a welcome sticky (Reddit style) but that ended up on the microblog. But you can't sticky those for some reason. But I also can't find how to create a thread with just text from the drop down menu. Can someone explain the differences and why they are there?
    Thx.

    MothraCultist,
    MothraCultist avatar

    @lol3droflxp When adding a new thing like from the + menu, the "Add new post" is for only the microblogs. Everything else will be made as a thread. If you want to make a text-only thread, choose "Add new article". As to why it is how it is, I am probably not the right person to answer that, sorry! :)

    fedi tends to lean very anti-ad just on principle, but hey, i could be wrong. I'm not exactly stopping anyone from trying it out. :)
