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. Sexually explicit or violent media must be marked as sensitive when posting.
  2. No spam or advertising.
  3. No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, or casteism.
  4. No incitement of violence or promotion of violent ideologies.
  5. No harassment, dogpiling or doxxing of other users.
  6. No illegal content.

Social networking, back in your hands

Follow friends and discover new ones among more than 4.4M people. Publish anything you want: links, pictures, text, video. All on a platform that is community-owned and ad-free.

Mastodon isn’t just a website, it is a federation—think Star Trek. Thousands of independent communities running Mastodon form a coherent network, where while every planet is different, being part of one is being part of the whole.

Mastodon comes with effective anti-abuse tools to help protect yourself. Thanks to the network's spread out and independent nature there are more moderators who you can approach for personal help, and servers with strict codes of conduct.

Sharing your thoughts has never been more convenient

You have 1000 characters. You can adjust the thumbnails of your pictures with focal points. You can use custom emojis, hide things behind spoiler warnings and choose who sees a given post. Messed it up? You can delete & redraft for quick corrections.

Mastodon for the individual

Without an incentive to sell you things, Mastodon allows you to consume content you enjoy uninterrupted. Your feed is chronological, ad-free and non-algorithmic—you decide who you want to see!

Be sure to check our Terms & Code of Conduct.

Cross-posting

"Cross-posting" is the automatic copying of posts from one platform to another. That definition does not include the simultaneous posting to multiple platforms from the same app, such as Twidere or PostyBirb. If you use those apps, we consider those posts original, and the following need not apply.

Cross-posting from Mastodon to other platforms is fully permitted. Cross-posting into Mastodon from another platform is permitted under the following terms:

  1. The posts do not include platform-specific references, e.g. talking about "here" meaning Twitter, or including text from other non-Mastodon users verbatim (e.g. cross-posted quote tweets)
  2. The account is at least semi-regularly monitored by the author, so that interactions from Mastodon users are not ignored
  3. The account being cross-posted is owned by the same person. Third-party copying of content is not permitted

Tor network access

Since hidden service websites cannot get a valid SSL certificate we use a self-signed one. You can safely accept this and use Mastodon over Tor.

Various resources, such as images, will still be offered through your regular non-Tor domain. How much of a problem this is will depend greatly on your user’s level of caution.
