@stopthatgirl7@kbin.social

Hey, y’all! Just another random, loudmouthed, opinionated, Southern-fried nerdy American living abroad.

I’m moving off kbin to lemmy, so I won’t be posting from here (unless kbin social gets it together).

RE: Is Ernest still here? ( kbin.social )

I check in here quite often, but for now, I'm just focusing on clearing spam and keeping the instance alive. In January, I was working on the AP module, and there has been significant progress in the work, which hasn't been publicly published yet. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the year, I developed a skin condition that...

That’s about where I am, honestly. I’m starting to look for alternatives.

I can deal with the site having the occasional problem, but I can’t deal with absolutely no communication at all when things break down. Kbin has gotten too big to be a one-person operation.

This is now the fourth post I’ve seen about people starting to get fed up, and honestly, you know people are starting to hit their limits once people start making posts about their frustrations. I bet a lot of folks have just quietly given up or moved to lemmy or mbin because they’ve gotten frustrated with all the issues.

I’m a pretty patient person and can put up with a lot of goofiness on a site, as long as there’s some kind of communication happening. But there’s none.

The fact that we’re sitting here theorizing where Ernest is like he’s Kate Middleton is why this can’t be a one-man operation anymore. It’s too much for one person to begin with, and when people have no idea what’s going on, they’ll start going wild with theories as to what’s going on.

The site errored out repeatedly when I tried to like a comment, so “robust” is not the word I’m thinking right now.

Has there ever been a time kbin.social didn't do that from time to time?

You understand that’s not a selling point, correct?

Hilariously, I got an error message trying to load the notification for your comment.

And as I’ve said before, I can put up with wonkiness. But I can’t put up with no communication and not knowing what all is wrong or how long things are going to be messy. I like kbin, but I do not like wondering if social is going to go belly up with no warning and no idea when it’ll get fixed when it did start erroring out for days and no way to find out what’s even going on.

Is there a list anywhere of different kbin instances? I don’t want to give up on kbin, but I might have to give up on social.

Ethics bill would ban ‘pay-to-play’ political donations from companies with government contracts ( tnsenatedems.medium.com )

The state of Tennessee every year pays billions to private companies that have contracts to perform government work. And, in some cases, those companies then make sizable campaign contributions directly to the politicians who influence whether those agreements are approved....

where are kbin admins? ( kbin.social )

Abandoned large magazines are being bombarded with spam and admins are nowhere to be seen it seems. Hundreds of spam bot posts have not been deleted for months, see /infosec /internet /opensource /science, etc. and there are some posts about admins not responding to reports. So whats happening here?...

It’s really frustrating because kbin has gotten too big to still basically be a one-man operation. Unless he lets other people take over some things, the wheels are gonna fall off sooner rather than later.

At this point, I won’t believe it’s actually coming out until it’s actually for sale. I also don’t have any high hopes for it being very good if it does come out.

From what I heard, they were dropping from four companions to three, Mass Effect style, and wanted the combat to be more like God of War. So my fear is it’s gonna be like Andromeda, where you can’t control your companions’ abilities at all.

Which is exactly what the Republicans wanted.

Bill cracking down on Oregon child labor laws heads to Gov. Kotek ( www.opb.org )

The bill, which passed unanimously out of the House, faced scrutiny on the Senate floor from a handful of Republican legislators. Two senators criticized a provision that would increase the maximum penalty per child labor violation from $1,000 to $10,000.

I really like kbin, but honestly, with as unstable as it is and how little information is coming out about what’s going on (seriously, there needs to at least be a Mastodon account we can check for updates or information when kbin social is down), I’m seriously considering making a lemmy account and moving over. It’s frustrating, because I do really prefer kbin, but this is beyond frustrating.

I don’t actually mind stuff not getting seen, it’s more not knowing if the site is going to error out when I try to look at it or check replies. Trying to access the site, or trying to upvote things, and getting error messages that are less than useful gets old fast.
