@paralithode @CM_eramdam @CM_noelle @smakian yup it's us but it also wouldn't be possible without reports from the community :)

Site news 

We've reviewed social.targaryen.house's moderation policy and community guidelines and spoken with their administrator, and we feel that their revised guidelines (found here: social.targaryen.house/about/m ) no longer present the issues that led to our silencing them. We've therefore made the decision to unsilence social.targaryen.house, effective immediately.

@maloki @Pawtiko Just checked: no new accounts since we closed registrations, as expected. Also strange is that it looks like the bot pulls the numbers straight from our about/more page (github.com/josefkenny/usercoun) which defianitely shouldn't have changed.

@mattskala Mastodon.Social is not filtering specific words or doing any form automated moderation nor do we have any plans to implement any form of automated moderation.

Thank you for your reports. You're helping us keep the instance safe and friendly. Please keep sending them in if you see someone breaking the rules ( mastodon.social/about/more ).

Just so you know, there's no automated report handling on mastodon.social; we read each one carefully and make a case-by-case judgment.

Don't forget to mute or block if you see something that's allowed but you personally don't want to keep seeing. No one will judge you; your timeline should be your space.

@CM_noelle @CM_rushyo @ZoomBubba You should send a direct message to @maloki - I will pass this message along to them now as well!

Your admins and moderators on mastodon.social are:

@Gargron - admin and creator of Mastodon
@maloki - project manager
@CM_noelle - that's me! ❤

If you run into a bug or have a question about how the site works, please contact @Support (we all keep an eye on it)

We like the community here and we want to keep you safe. We regularly check reports and read feedback. Please let us know if there's something we could do better!

Roadmap for 1.5, has been aptly named "Admin Love".
Hope you will all like what's in store!


(Reminder this is an unmanned account, and we will not respond to any @'s )

@bvtsang @maloki I can look through and try to implement all of the elements that are possible within a user-selectable theme, as a start.

(i.e. currently users can can choose between a dark and light theme, I could begin creating an accessibility/WCAG complient option)

A friendly remider:
This account does not have anyone monitoring it, so questions are better directed at @Support or one of our community moderators:
@CM_chrismartin @CM_noelle @CM_rushyo @CM_eramdam
Alternatively check out the github for issues github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ ,
or discourse for questions discourse.joinmastodon.org/

If you have any feedback on the FAQ Guidelines for how to use Discourse, now is a good time to provide us this feedback.


I will link this thread to the support/admin group working on looking over the document.

These are guidelines which are important for us that everyone on discourse is aware of, and want to follow. So we can adjust the moderation protocol accordingly.

And lastly, we are going to set up a category for the greater as well, where you are all welcome to give us feedback on developments, both socially and technically. My, @maloki, hope is that this can help mend some divides in the fediverse. I will reach out personally to a whole bunch of you as soon as my thesis crunch is over (52hrs to go as of writing this)

In the meanwhile you can set up an account on discourse.joinmastodon.org if you are so inclined.

Further we are really want to hear from you, in the greater community, what you would want from this discussion forum. (on the forum, not in a reply!)

There is currently a thread up where you are welcome to engage in conversation about what categories (boards) you would like to see.
