Since this instance is small and close-knit enough to make a formal code of conduct or moderation policy a little too heavyweight, instead this will be a description of our operating principles and loose guidelines.
If you ever have any inquiries, comments or concerns about the conduct of anybody on this server, the operating principles described in this document, or anything else -- direct them all to @KitRedgrave@socially.constructed.space, the admin and caretaker of this server.
Everyone on this instance is personally known and invited by the admin, in order to keep moderation load and policy to a minimum. The hope is that if anyone has a complaint with a user on this server, we can have a discussion about it and resolve the problem to everyone's satisfaction with a minimum of drama.
The purpose of this instance was, and still is, to be a sort of independent crossroads to talk with any other instance that wants to talk to us. We do not depend on anyone else to tell us what we're allowed and not allowed to do. In particular, we reserve the right to invoke the Nick Fury rule.
Be Good Neighbors
The flip side of this is that we have a responsibility to be good neighbors to the rest of the Fediverse. We don't allow any Nazis on this server, and we don't harass anyone. This instance lives and dies on the goodwill of others, especially factoring in the next principle.
You Can Always Quit
We believe strongly in voluntary association, and users have the right to delete their posts, remove themselves from conversations, suspend/delete their accounts and leave at any time for any reason. This goes for people on other servers as well -- we respect that you have the right to block, silence or suspend any of our users.
If you are an admin of your own instance, we respect your right to decide not to federate with us for any reason (though it would be appreciated if you made that fact known and posted somewhere publically visible). Likewise, though we are loath to do so without extenuating circumstances, we reserve the right to not federate with any server for any reason (but we will also make that fact known to you and post it somewhere publically visible).
