OC Kbinicons Part 3 is here: 19 EU flags in two different styles each + a psd file to generate small instance logos for separate kbin instances

Hi everyone, I’m back with another kbin icon pack. This time it’s flags for 18 EU countries (the non-fancy ones) + an EU flag. So 38 icons in total. All icons come in two styles: semi-transparent/glassy and opaque metallic. I also made a simple instance logo generator....

Negative_Pair_5694,

The German flag is also rotated to the wrong direction, probably some others too. Usually what is in the top left stays in the top left. For reference see https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/media.worldcurling.org/media.worldcurling.org/wcf_worldcurling/2019/08/06131254/Display_of_Flags.pdf

I won't stand any ads on youtube. Getting blasted with 5 times the same ad at 300% loudness. And premium does not really get rid of it as well, they would have to forbid sponsored content. Every time ads start to slip through adblock I will happily spend hours trying to block them instead of watching a single one. If they don't want me to watch the videos for free they can easily put them behind a paywall. Or do some reasonable pricing if they need infrastucture costs covered.

However I don't mind sending a couple of bucks towards content creators that I watch regularly. That will easily be worth more to them than watching ads even for the rest of my life.

But to add to that as well: If the site has stored your password insecurely, they will probably have lost your 2FA secret too. Which even has to be stored in 'plain text' in contrast to your password.

Negative_Pair_5694,

Also lemmy.world is extremely slow in pushing out messages to other instances, if at all. So leading the pack is not necessarily the best thing until you figure out scaling.

Negative_Pair_5694,

This one will additionally use user submitted titles and thumbnails when available instead of just random ones.

Negative_Pair_5694,

Not exactly. I think the advertisers will start to ask some uncomfortable questions, as will any inverstors for the IPO.

My Filters indeed

Negative_Pair_5694,

I don't think that would work. PiHole works on a DNS level and has no insight to the encrypted connection to Youtube. So it cannot see or modify the site content on the fly. uBlock Origin basically can (beside DNS based blocking) modify the websites' code after it has loaded into your browser.

Negative_Pair_5694,

Well it was -20% on greenmangaming lately, -15% now. I can see a point there at least 😄

Negative_Pair_5694,

Got a bit further on this.

If you set SERVER_NAME="http://" then Caddy will start listening on port 80 only, where traefik can reverse proxy into. Website works and it seems to find communities on other servers, but there are no incoming messages.

Negative_Pair_5694,

Federation is a bit broken right now because Cloudflares DDoS protection is active and interferes with the federation connections to the server.

Pssst... any ideas for a domain name for the new instance?

Hi there! I've been trying to improve the situation for the past few hours. I managed to disable CF Protection, and as you can see, I'm gradually allowing traffic from the fediverse. There may still be delays in deliveries and posts for some time. If anything is particularly troublesome, please let me know through the contact...

Negative_Pair_5694,

It should be that way. However currently it seems federation is broken quite a bit as Cloudflares' DDoS protection is active and requesting CAPTCHAs for a lot of connection attempts to the server.

Thank you so much for your support! 😍

I just saw an email from Buy Me a Coffee. Not just one. I went in, and I'm truly shocked. Thank you all for the support; I would like to thank each and every one of you individually someday. Honestly, I don't know what to say. The account balance is $350, which will definitely allow me to develop kbin faster or at least not...

Negative_Pair_5694,

I have seen https://opencollective.com/ used a lot to collect donations in a transparent way (also supporting crypto payments). Maybe that is something you want to look into as well.

Negative_Pair_5694,

At least not much difference to the US market with an exchange rate near parity. Also those prices usually are with VAT included.

/kbin quick update

As you noticed, I had to temporarily enable DDoS protection. Someone is trying quite effectively to distract me from my activities ;p Unfortunately, this may cause some issues with the federation. I will try to cut off the traffic as soon as possible and return to normal operation. Thank you for all your support and patience! :)

Negative_Pair_5694,

I don't see how that can be solved with the fediverse right now. It definitely needs some proper p2p propagation protocols.

Negative_Pair_5694,

Gear breaking is the worst mechanic of them all. At least if it is every 5 hits.

Negative_Pair_5694,

The thing is, the "software" actually is open source, so you can tell how data is requested from your smart ID. The german government ID has an explicit function for age verification that does not provide any personal information.
https://github.com/Governikus/AusweisApp2

However it is probably hard and costly to get certified to use any of those functions as a service provider.
