Some ground rules.

These are set and enforced by the kind.social moderators.

  1. Don't be an asshole, and don't post anything illegal. Those concepts guide most other rules & moderation.
  2. No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, antisemitism, ableism, harassment, or other hateful conduct. Please, also report it whenever seen.
  3. Content Warnings & Sensitive Media labels are required for depictions of nudity, bloodshed, or extreme harm. CWs, Alt Text, & PascalCase hashtags are encouraged for improving everyone's experiences, especially disabled users. However, policing posts or bullying people to using them is unacceptable.
  4. No big corporate advertising, spam, or accounts. No crypto advertising, spam, or accounts. No "AI" advertising, spam, or accounts. However, small businesses & independent creators, along with their self-promotion, are welcomed and encouraged.
  5. Automated & Bot accounts must be labeled as such. If the account will be regularly posting more than 3 times a day, posts should be set as Unlisted by default to prevent clogging up the Local timeline.
  6. Check out the admin's Pinned Posts for new user info like: app suggestions, moderation principles, Mastodon norms, & more. The admin's profile can be found at https://kind.social/@Texan_Reverend If you have questions or want help configuring your account & app, Texan_Reverend is only an @ away.
