What does the "Favorites" feed do? (kbin.social)

I've been using Kbin for a few months now and I didn’t really feel the need to set my #feed to anything besides "Subscribed". I can guess from their names what the "All" and "Moderated" feed are but I have no idea what the #favorites feed does. I've seen that the recently added #collections also use the word "favorite" when...

RTR#32 Further refactoring, debugging voting errors (kbin.social)

Today, I continue with code refactoring, getting closer to finishing the most tedious part. I've also improved tools to prevent spam on the instance, which will take effect in a few days, addressing the issue of overloading other instances that have been reported. After today's wave of spam, I've also started working on...

Where can I find documentation on how federation works? (kbin.social)

I can't find anything on the specifics of how federation actually works. The op thread gets copied to any federated server? What happens if the thread is deleted on the op server? Does it still exist on all other federated servers? How do comments and votes work? That kind of thing.

Thinking on creating a guide on leaving Twitter etc. for creators, etc., some tips on what it should include? (kbin.social)

A lot of artists, etc. are reluctant to leave corporate social media like Twitter, due to fears over the Fediverse (usually spread by other people, that think Fediverse = Gab + some cryprobros + maybe Pawoo), or not willing to understand it....

Can't view the threads page of newcommunities@lemmy.world (kbin.social)

Whenever I try to view the threads page of newcommunities@lemmy.world (i.e., https://kbin.social/m/newcommunities@lemmy.world), I get an error. It's only kbin.social where this happens, and it's only the threads page of this specific community. I can view the microblogs, the people, and even individual threads, but the threads...

Artemis.camp Instance (kbin.social)

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this. So if it isn't I apologize. For several days the artemis.camp instance was online but not operating optimally, and showing no new posts. This morning trying to access the site gives the dreaded 'bad gateway' error. No information has been provided by the instance admin. So it...

Can't block Hexbear communities - with workaround (kbin.social)

So to my immense joy, Hexbear has started appearing on the front page again. Instance blocking is not available, and even the regular block feature sometimes fails (on certain communities?) for no clear reason. I've already tried blocking their "DuNk tAnK" and politics sub, it errors in a way that doesn't seem to happen...

Could there be a "Filter" button for magazines? (kbin.social)

I know there's block, but "block" currently blacklists the entire magazine. If I click on it, it wipes all the threads on /all/, prevents me from looking at threads on the magazine landing page and all comments in the threads should I venture in. A "filter" would be a soft block that just clears it from my feed on the main page....
