About

In the wake of the end of Niu, many people fled for other instances. However, most instances with similar cultures to the instance run Pleroma, which, while it is good software, has some different features from Mastodon. This instance was set up to provide a community similar to that of Niu, with a similar moderation policy, federation policy, and type of content.
Anyone is welcome, as long as you follow some simple rules. Mods here err on the side of caution, when making moderation decisions - you can rest assured that you will not be banned for making a post when you're in a bad mood or feeling edgy, for example.

The Rules

  • Respect other users and their backgrounds. Examples of some activities that will not be tolerated are:
    • Harassment.
    • Hateful speech.
    • Being transphobic, racist, fascist, religious intolerance, etc...
    • (And potentially more as we come across specific cases, but you see the picture)
  • When interacting with users outside of this server, you should follow the rules of their server. In some cases this is unreasonable, depending on the server's policies, but please try to be courteous.
  • You have to follow proper procedures when posting NSFW content.
    If you don't understand what NSFW means, here's the wikipedia article about it.
    • You must hide NSFW content using the Mark media as sensitive checkbox
    • You must put explicit (Pornographic, genitals, fluid everywhere, etc) content on the Unlisted privacy level, or more.
    • You may not have NSFW content in your profiles.
    • Gore content must be posted on followers-only and must not be posted for shock value (personal injuries or medical information are allowed, of course).
  • Sexual depictions of children are not allowed on this server and are considered child pornography and reported to the relevant authorities.
    This same rule applies if it is your body, you have to be at least 18 years old to post sexually implying pictures of yourself, no exceptions.
    Lolicon is allowed, but must be marked as Unlisted and NSFW, and should not be posted mentioning users on instances that do not allow such content.
  • Don't share anyone's personal information without their consent, and delete content about a person should they ask.
  • For profit companies account aren't allowed. (If you look around a bit there are servers made specifically for this)
  • Offering sex services in exchange for money is prohibited on the server. (If you look around a bit there are servers made specifically for this)
  • Boosting content is the same as posting content, if you boost something you endorse it and it must follow these rules.
  • Art reposting: posting art from outside the Fediverse is a common practice on the Fediverse. Since many artists view it as stealing, it's a controversial issue. If you do repost off-Fediverse art, please be sure to link to the source - and don't repost art that the creator has put on the Fediverse, you can boost it instead.

Politics With Other Instances

"Be conservative in what you send and liberal in what you receive." - Netiquette
  • We federate with the whole fediverse.
    That being said, instances that are a common source of content that breaks our rules, or are a source of nuisance might be either:
    • Silenced, where anyone can follow anyone, but posts will be hidden by default.
    • Suspended, which prevents almost all communication with this instance.
    This list is documented at the bottom of the page.
  • If you're managing a server and believe we have silenced or suspended you unfairly, please reach out to the administration team via a non-suspended instance.

Other Instances we Recommend

If the rules on this instance do not suit you, we recommend you find another.
There is a curated list located at wowana.me/fediverse.xht (for instances with some level of "freedom of expression", that we recommend (we currently federate with all instances on that list, so you can interact with users here from any of those instances).

Guidelines

You won't be banned for violating these, but the community would appreciate if you did.
  • Don't spam the local timeline, especially with NSFW imagery.
  • Don't ask strangers to "add a cw" to their posts - usually, muting or blocking is recommended.
  • Don't censor slurs - it bypasses word filters and is annoying to readers.

Credits

Unavailable content

Mastodon generally allows you to view content from and interact with users from any other server in the fediverse. These are the exceptions that have been made on this particular server.

Media files from these servers will not be stored, and no thumbnails will be displayed, requiring manual click-through to the original file:

Server Reason
baraag.net Instance allows borderline content (CGI underage porn) which is questionable under USA law (18 U.S. Code § 1466A)

Posts from these servers will be hidden in public timelines and conversations, and no notifications will be generated from their users' interactions, unless you are following them:

Server Reason
cliterati.club Transphobia, harassment
gab.com General nuisance
newsbots.eu Bot-only instance (ideally Mastodon would support "federated timeline removal" only)
spinster.xyz Antagonizing trans community

No data from these servers will be processed or stored, making any interaction or communication with users from these servers impossible (however, they can see your public posts):

Server Reason
crypto-group-buy.com Created for the purpose of spam/marketing
sunbeam.city Administrator supports doxxing.
