Server rules

Below is a summary of rules you need to follow if you want to have an account on this server of Mastodon:

  1. Do not use slurs or racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist or otherwise discriminatory or hateful jokes or language or promote white supremacy, anti-Semitism, transphobia or other hateful ideologies.
  2. Do not harass anyone, participate in group harassment of anyone, or otherwise engage in personal attacks. Posting or threatening to post other people’s personally identifying information (“doxing”) constitutes harassment.
  3. Do not be intentionally antagonistic. A post or reply designed to provoke a confrontation is not acceptable.
  4. Do not post adult content, including pictures containing nudity, or unwelcome sexual attention (including sexualized comments or jokes).
  5. Do not use automated tools to toot without participating in the community. It is fine to post with an automated tool so long as you are an active member of the Fosstodon community and respond to replies you receive here. Unmonitored accounts that post automatically are not acceptable.
  6. Do not debate moderation actions in public toots. If you disagree with how a moderator enforced this CoC you may direct-message the moderation team or email team@fosstodon.org.
  7. Do not toot in languages other than English (which makes moderation prohibitively difficult). https://hub.fosstodon.org/why-fosstodon-is-english-only/
  8. Do not post spam. Toots that are nothing other than a link and/or contain an inordinate number of hashtags are spam, as does any overly commercial self-promotion. (It is fine to toot about your own projects and share what you are excited to be working on — just keep the toot itself interesting).
  9. Do not post about inflammatory, controversial subjects without a Content Warning.
  10. Do not “shitpost” - while humorous posts are allowed, and actually encouraged, there is no place for “shitposting” on Fosstodon.
  11. Do not engage in name calling, ad hominem attacks, or any other uncivil behaviour; criticize ideas, never people.
  12. Do not tone police. Toots may violate the standards of civility we set on Fosstodon, but you should not criticize users for their tone. Report them or feel free to block them. In neither case should you criticize their tone.

Code of Conduct

The code of conduct at Fosstodon can be simply summarised as "don't be a jerk". However, if you need more detail as to what we consider unacceptable behaviour, please take a look at our code of conduct.

Longevity and Fosstodon

One of the issues with a federated social network like Mastodon is users need to be sure their instance isn’t going to disappear overnight. This has happened a number of occasions we've seen, and we want to ease your mind in that regard should you choose Fosstodon.
