They’re always active with their own mastodon server & proving (no strings attached) funds for the development (along with some other ActivityPub projects if I’m not mistaken).

Thanks, interessant stuk - goed te zien dat Amsterdam voorop loopt!

Thank you so much! That worked perfectly - I've done it now on a couple of Lemmy servers, so it'll show up there by default now.
Only Lemmy.ml didn't work, but that's ok!

Oddly enough that trick didn't work on Fedia.io (Kbin server), where books@kbin.social works....
Is there a similar trick for Kbin?

Hey that's so cool!
There's so many damrak & canal posts flooding the sub now, that this should work!

Actually, come to think of it, most are from you in the first place :D

Eerste zomerstorm losgebarsten: nu ook in Amsterdam code oranje (www.at5.nl)

Het KNMI waarschuwt voor hevig onweer, flinke hagelbuien en harde windstoten die vanmiddag vanaf het zuidwesten op de stad afkomen. Eerder vandaag gaf het KNMI nog code geel voor de provincie Noord-Holland maar dat is nu in de hele provincie opgeschaald naar code oranje.

One piece of functionality kbin desperately needs is a quick way to access your subrcibed magazines. Preferably in a drop-down menu like <redacted> has.

@sheawoodrow That's the one of the few things it has right now :)
Just the = burger menu next to you user name at the top right of the screen.

@sheawoodrow
ahh yes, I’d love that too.

Right now it’s username > profile > subscribed which are too many clicks (especially on mobile).

How I’ve approach it is to use the built in developer tools to “inspect” an element in Kbin & then use the Appearance panel in the Moderation Panel of your community to change it.

The linked kbinStyles community gives a good idea of the format involved.

Yep, wij de Mods van /r/Amsterdam zijn nu de overstap aan het maken: https://kbin.social/m/Amsterdam

Ah thank you - Fedia started federating later with our Magazine on Kbin.

On Reddit we got so many reponces that we had a new thread every week. Let me post a new thread and it should flow into all the instances.

The official r/GlobalOffensive at Kbin (www.reddit.com)

As you may have already seen most of Reddit has gone dark including r/GlobalOffensive. We, the mod team of r/GlobalOffensive have created this alternative Counter-Strike community here for people who want to continue discussing Counter-Strike, bypassing Reddit's shenanigans....

Good to have you on board! Us at /r/Amsterdam are also dipping our toes into the Reddit-like Fediverse.

A few things we’ve noticed:

  1. The cloud flare thing on Kbin currently sucks. It eats comments.
  2. We’re wondering how users will deal with multiple communities with the same name (across instances). Will the Lemmy.ml or the Lemmy.World or the Kbin.social “CSPro” be the default?
    We’re looking at redirects/links to stitch it together a bit.
  3. Kbin seems a bit more refined on the UI side currently, even if the naming (‘Magazines’) is confusing currently.
    It Mark’s the return of CSS styling, and happily can build on a very modern & solid CSS foundation unlike Old.Reddit.
  4. Lemmy is the only one with (iOS) apps at the moment (Mlem) but it’s still very basic at the moment. Like with Mastodon, I expect you this to change rapidly, given the extra time a bunch of devs will soon have + the ones who’ve just gotten very good at Fediverse coding through Mastodon are out there.
  5. Moderation tools are a bit mystery still. Need to get some traffic first to see how it will evolve!

If you guys want to swap stories/advice, hit me up!

Yes, I agree with pretty much everything you’ve written.

I would like to add, that, just as with Linux, it can still take over the world, like Android — as long as the USP becomes more user focussed (like you said).

With Mastodon multiple instances work fine I think (like email), but for communities it seems more messy, so there may have to be a specific innovation there to make it less confusing.

Q&A Thread - Your Question Goes Here - Especially Tourists and New Residents

This is the place for anyone to ask questions about Amsterdam. If you are a tourist visiting Amsterdam, you are moving to or recently arrived in Amsterdam, or you just have a basic question about life in Amsterdam and want some advice, this is the place to post your question....

akaxaka,
akaxaka avatar

No worries, we’re all figuring it out! (Plus Kbin and Lemmy are in very active development, so I’m sure we’ll see some improvements soon).

A new Thread can be started with the “+” in your top bar, and add a new “article”.

Would be great if you could add one!

Great!!

Hello! Loving the username!

akaxaka,
akaxaka avatar

Haha bless your heart! Thank you!
It was just a test post, to work out if we liked Lemmy or Kbin better. It's the photo of the Damrak we always got in the old sub!

Welcome to the new Amsterdam community!

@Doll_Tow_Jet@kbin.social You're very welcome! At this point we're testing the waters, but to me it's looking like we'll promote this place over Reddit.

akaxaka,
akaxaka avatar

Although we may end up on Fedia's Kbin rather than this one.

@Doll_Tow_Jet@kbin.social

akaxaka,
akaxaka avatar

@Doll_Tow_Jet@kbin.social It's another Kbin-software server hosted at Fedia.io (just like this one is hosted at Kbin.social).
It's equivalent to Lemmy.ml and Lemmy.world or Mastodon.social and Mas.to.

We ended up chosing this "Magazine"(/Community) at Kbin.social, so you're in the right place!
