Mastodon.host Mastodon hosted on mastodon.host

  • Mastodon.host is a general, fast, stable and open instance.
  • We federate with everyone.
  • We offer one of the most complete federated timeline thanks to @federationbot.
  • This instance is lightly moderated in general, common sense applied. That said, read the rules below :)

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 1024 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • You can help hosting the server by donating a few cpu cycles ( mining cryptocurrency ). For the moment, it does not run on smartphones. Check your preferences ! ( actually don't it's being phased out since monero fork )

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.

Never hesitate to contact the admin team if you have any questions!

Please read the FAQ below or at https://mastodon.host/about/more to get started.

What are the instance's rules?

No illegal stuff, harassment, discrimination, xenophobia, threats or any behavior that is not appropriate to a friend will be tolerated here. This is a safe place for everyone. Respect your fellow users. Use the mute or block feature if you don't want to see what a specific user posts.

We will act on our users'reports, but will ban from our instance only problematic situations or when our users can't do it themselves/needs us to protect them. We suggest that you first block the persons you don't want to see. If that situation degenerates, contact us and we'll deal with it. Moderation is a last resort action, as you, the user have the power to block/silence anyone or any instance you want.

Content warnings are required if you are posting content that is erotic, pornographic, gory, etc. This applies to text, pictures, and videos. If you would not open that picture/video in front of your boss/spouse/kids, use the content warning feature. That way individual users will see the content warning, and decide for themselves if they want to click and view the content you have shared.

Anything that is illegal in Europe/USA shall not be posted on this server. Lolicons, for example, are illegal.

Please use common sense. Don't do illegal stuff, don't discriminate, don't be racist, etc...

If you see content that violates our rules, please use the report feature, or notify an administrator. Do not engage with users who are being rude or inappropriate. If you don't want to see someone's contributions, you can block/silence that user and report to us. We'll deal with it.

We try to post in English so everyone understands, but that rule is not enforced at all ;)

Most importantly have fun and be nice to each other!

Regarding bots:

Bots are allowed as long as their main posts are done 'unlisted' (not displayed on the timelines). You are allowed to advertise your bot on the timelines a couple times a week. Any bot not respecting those rules will be silenced by default. We just want to prevent having a bot monopolizing the timeline. Thanks for your understanding.

What is this instance's privacy policy?

We will never share your data with anyone, except if a valid legal request is received (Hopefully it will not happen).

Who are the admins?

This instance is hosted/admin by @gled and moderated by @House_of_Pears and @skiring

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

Built for real conversation
With 1024 characters at your disposal and support for granular content and media warnings, you can express yourself the way you want to.
You’re a person, not a product
Mastodon is not a commercial network. No advertising, no data mining, no walled gardens. There is no central authority.
Always within reach
Multiple apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms thanks to a developer-friendly API ecosystem allow you to keep up with your friends anywhere.
A more humane approach
Learning from failures of other networks, Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.
