I've been checking on the boost and save3rdpartyapps over the last couple of weeks and now boost won't load any content.

Bye bye Reddit I guess.

Soon be time for boost to launch that rocket on Lemmy

And we have liftoff. ;)

Sorry, couldn't resist.

[-] Sneckster 6 points 11 months ago

I like what you did there

[-] [email protected] 16 points 11 months ago

Boost died for me at 7PM EDT on 6/30, along with the rest of Reddit. Apparently, Reddit was incompetent with disabling everything, so it (along with other 3rd party app) still worked for some people if you were not logged in.

Same here. Intermittent. I firmly just moved over to lemmy, after a phased entrance.

I have found Liftoff for Lemmy a good alternative, until boost for lemmy comes live.

[-] Sneckster 8 points 11 months ago

Liftoff is my go to at the minute although I'm posting this from wefwef because it's easier to see replies on there.

With time though all the apps will be great in their own ways.

If you didn't know, they are actively working on a Lemmy app.

Same here, just uninstalled it. Jerboa and thunder are my lemmy apps, i will miss a niche sub but i will probably forget about it in few weeks.

I was a redditor since 2012, nothing last forever.

Long live Lemmy

I miss the niche subs I was a part of, I recreated them on Lemmy and hopefully they can gain some traction, I loved the discussions on those subs and I hope I can have the same experience on Lemmy. If not, life goes on.

guess it's time to fully switch to lemmy! hopefully boost for lemmy gets released soon

It was fun. I had great moments but now I have to close my account. Even my second account.

[-] MonsieurArchi 3 points 11 months ago

Yeah but after reddits actions I feel wrong using the place.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 11 months ago

Odd. Mines still working. NSFW subs don't load but normal content from a logged in account does.

[-] Hypovolemic 7 points 11 months ago

Mine died a couple hours ago.

I looked, and it was working, and two minutes later it was gone.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 11 months ago

It's kind of inconsistent for me. My only theory, based on something I saw on r/BoostForReddit, is that I'm still marked as a mod for an inactive sub. My alt doesn't load anything.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 11 months ago

I still have access to nsfw with ReVanced Sync. But afaik im not mod anywhere.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 11 months ago

I am only running through official, not revanced. Probably won't bother with that tbh. But good to know that those that want to use that patch can successfully, at least for now.

[-] Madbrad200 1 points 11 months ago* (last edited 11 months ago)

Still works for me

Likewise, if you are a member, sympathiser or a resemblant of a movement that is known to largely hate, mock, discriminate against, and/or want to take lives of a group of people, and you were provably vocal about your hate, then you will be banned on sight.

Rule 8- All comments should try to stay relevant to their parent content.
