Friendly reminder to everyone on Fosstodon - this is an English-speaking instance, so we would request that all Toots be posted in English please.

This isn't because we don't like other languages, but our staff can only speak English, so there is no way of moderating posts in other languages.

Unfortunately, we will need to remove any non-English posts we discover. We're sorry if this causes any frustration with our awesome members. 👍


@fosstodon various users have offered to help with moderating Portuguese, Spanish and French. Will you revise your policy?
If not will it be clearly stated on the signup form?

@El_django it is stated on our CoC, to which there is a link on the about page. What about Russian, Czech, Japanese, Mandarin, or any other language out there?

Unfortunately, no, we won't be revising the policy in the near future. It's something we have thought long and hard about.
