Hello from my Kbin account!

I agree that this part of the article is not well developed, and I should have probably rewritten it. What I was trying to get at is that Flipboard has a hierarchy that is unique: The Actor owns a Group, with the Actor being the highest level, and the Magazine below it.

While you could probably map a Flipboard Magazine onto a ActivityPub Group similarly like a Kbin Magazine is a Group, the intended usecase is still quite different, even though they are both link-aggregators. I dont think this is an insurmountable problem per se, but I dont agree that Kbins Magazines are super similar to Flipboards Magazines. If you wanted an fediverse comparison, I think Flipboards Magazines are actually way closer to the Postmarks.

I've tried multiple channels, and I never managed from other software, even though I could find the underlying individual videos that are part of the channels. Can you link an example?

if anything, its gotten worse tbh. the upside is that the move account feature to mastodon works, was a bit concerned about that.

it doesnt block your old account after a move like mastodon does, so i still have a functional firefish account, just not my followers anymore

chris stating that hes hesitant to open his new (4 person) firefish server to other people until theyve tested more for stability makes me quite hesitant to recommend the platform for now, if stability issues are this deeply ingrained

hey, thanks for letting me know. I think thats cloudflare, as its a pretty standard wordpress blog that I've not actively enabled settings to hide stuff behind captchas etc. Not really sure why it happens, but im taking a look

Only partial federation of hashtagged posts to Kbin microblog?

I've been looking for a usecase to see where the combination of Threads and Microblog was particularly useful, and with the news around the potential superconductor #LK99 I figured this would be an interesting test case. So I made a magazine on kbin.social for LK99, and added the hashtags to tags in settings....

No, the value is in pulling in posts with a hashtag that arent being followed yet. But it feels like that isnt really possible yet, and that someone from kbin.social has to follow the account?

So my understanding with this new info is that LK99 is quite likely to be 'something', right? That something certainly does not have to be a superconductor, or anything even remotely impactful.

But am I understanding it correctly that the explanations of pure fraud or 'cat walked on keyboard during original measurements' for the original papers can be mostly ruled out?

Denk dat dit een kandidaat is waar je wel stemmen bij d66 en cda kan wegtrekken

Top! Had wel verwacht dat er mee ingestemd zou worden, maar 90% had ik niet verwacht, erg cool dat het zo breed gedragen wordt

The Nordic Council of Ministers set up a Think Tank for digital strategy stuff last year, and they published their recommendations two months ago. They specifically advised all the Nordic governments to go all in on ActivityPub.

soms wel fijn om toch af en toe een klein beetje trots te kunnen zijn op onze overheid

hell yeah interop is awesome!

laurens, to FediMeta

is what I'd suggest as the best hashtag for all the discussions about the fediverse, threads, activitypub, (de)federating with meta, etc.

Its also a magazine on Kbin, so you can use the Threads there, as well as the microblogging
