    I can’t get into calling subs “magazines”. Communities is much better.

      Just call them “clips.” /s Seriously though, the aesthetic of Kbin is its best feature, but the concept behind the threads seems. I dunno. Weird. Lemmy feels janky and basic, like old Reddit. 💗

        Coming off years of old.reddit.com, Lemmy felt like major bloat :) I’m used to it now though, definitely nothing compared to regular Reddit.

        And, yeah, the jank is 💗

            Also for Apollo users, the Memmy app is very close!

              There is also Arctic by CreatureSurvive being worked on which looks promising. I just want my Apollo experience again. 😭

            Old Lemmy is the best thing I’ve seen in a while. I found it last week, and it’s absolutely cured my Reddit cravings.

            Also for Apollo users… wefwef. I added the web app to my Home Screen and it feels like nothings changed.

                Oh yeh! And now you mention it, I remember that naming conversation. Well now I feel silly.

            Pretty cool, but I assume I wouldn’t be able to get my Subscribed RSS feed to work over there? There’s a login that ask for my username and password :/ No chance I’m actually trying that, does that actually work? I’m on SDFs lemmy, is it asking for those credentials? And, if so, who in the world thought that was a good idea in 2023?

              There are plenty of userstyles and userscripts inspired by old reddit if you don’t want to use mlmym. See [email protected].

                shitjustworks seems like one of the few really good instances.

        I’d argue that kbin’s UI is no longer a standout feature. Beautiful custom frontends for Lemmy like Alexandrite have been popping up left and right.

          This looks cool but not my cup of tea. Any other custom frontends we should know about?

            If it helps at all, the Alexandrite settings let you change the colors.

        “Bin” in the UK is where they put garbage, so I don’t know if that’s the best idea.

          I wouldn’t mind calling subs garbage either lol. Kind of funny

          A bin is just a container when it comes down to it.

          If the word “bin” bothers the Brits, they can just skip it.

      Same. This is just bizarre to me. Paper magazines aren’t as common in the world today as they used to be, but neither are they some ancient thing that has passed out of history, allowing the word to be used for pure metaphorical value. Maybe some people are young enough for it to be so, but certainly not me.
