Can somebody help me, please? Uploading an image as avatar doesn't work for me. All it does is "uploading" with no end in sight. Wtf am I doing wrong?

It'd be nice if all our emotes weren't gross fat people, I like the Yaniv and Rudy ones, though.

Haven't heard of anyone having issues. Maybe try with a different browser, or a different front-end like a mobile client or the Mastodon FE at: https://kiwifarms.cc/web

Seems one user wrote an MRF policy that sends you a private message when you get blocked by someone, by default blocks like that are invisible to the user. There might be some snowflake meltdowns from this: https://git.pleroma.social/snippets/1478/raw (archive)
Note MRF policies are reported in server metadata so they technically could just use a crawler and instance block any server using it.
This is now implemented, thanks again for the tip.

Blob emojis are also in, will add more later: https://emojos.in/kiwifarms.cc

User registration now requires a non-Google CAPTCHA (Kocaptcha), let me know if you have any issues with this. I tested it and it seems to work.

So the Pleroma thing is kinda like a twitter, but anyone can set up a server? And they all link together except when people don't want them to? (So basically, NO ONE will want to link with ours because we're the dark scum of the universe?)

That seems a bit like those early Bulletin Boards of the the Pre-HTML internet. A bunch of little communities, like forums. Do these turn into echo chambers basically?

None the less I'm intrigued, especially since it looks like they're easy to set up, says you can run them off Pis, which is neato. I signed up for our Kiwi one.

More or less. The linking was supposed to occur naturally in the sense of servers "lazily" discovering each other when users start to follow and networks organically growing but this changed when Mastodon arrived - they started setting up crawler bots to link with everything and then complained about getting garbage and moonrunes on their equivalent of The Whole Known Network

There is plenty of non-blocking instances around so it's probably not going to be a problem - if anything, the (former, since they switched to Pleroma by now or went down) GNU Social !axis instances are guaranteed to federate with you anyway given their ideology.

As far as echo chambers go, there are some but they also most likely block kiwifarms already without ever interacting so it's not that big of a deal. It mostly has to do with how Mastodon was falsely marketed when it joined the existing fediverse - as Twitter without "Nazis" where troons can feel safe (despite owner of one of the more active anime instances at the time being an outspoken Hitler fanboy, their first contact was amusing and is probably responsible for Mastodon's instance blocking policies)

apperently its a bug?
I followed someone from KF.cc using my Gab account, then later I got a notification on Gab that they followed me back, so I guess the problem is on my browser.

Also: the profile I want to follow has many posts on Gab, but on KF.cc it only shows one, so not really sure the issue is on my browser.

Most likely a problem on Gab's part.

Someone made a site with a collection of themes you may use to enhance your Pleroma viewing experience.

A map of the known Fediverse (does not include the largest Japanese instances). The pattern of degenerates to the west and normies to the east is fascinating to me.

What I find really amusing is that Matsoc, despite styling itself as the flagship instance, is merely a periphery in reality. It really shows the hugbox mentality of their users.
