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:
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.
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!
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.
We will never share your data with anyone, except if a valid legal request is received (Hopefully it will not happen).
Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.
