@Gargron I sent one for tinyfed.com - any way to know if the application is successful etc? Haven't heard back but it looks like the new server picker is live

@orekix Looks like baraag.net doesn't show up in the Art category either. I can only imagine why...

@Mastodon Fingers crossed tinyfed.com's submission goes through 🤞

But I'm worried about lack of recourse in the case it doesn't. This is an awful lot of centralized power for the approvers to have

@Mastodon a fantastic plan, and i’m really glad to see it. this was a necessity at some point.

@Mastodon @Gargron according to the link, servers must commit to "actively moderating against racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia." Does that include sexism against men?

As an example, let's say that there are two accounts in an instance.

The first one regularly says that all blacks are potential rapists, and the other regularly says that all MEN are potential rapists.

Should the instance ban both accounts? Just one of them? Or neither?

@bou
Quizá deberías saber que este caballero tiene un sentido del humor nulo, Bou, no le provoques con preguntas "peligrosas" que se pone mu raro :blobpats:

@Shaim82 aun así me sigue interesando saber la respuesta.

@KatSuricata that's precisely my point. Does @Gargron think that sexism against men isn't sexism and, therefore, that instances can allow it?

@bou @Gargron i hope they have the correct interpretation, yes. :)

@KatSuricata @Gargron it seems they do agree with your definition. I guess my days as a Mastodon user are coming to an end 🤔

@Mastodon
Great!

Are there any thoughts on making moderator quality/skill/availabilty transparant as well?

@Mastodon I'm glad stuff like sexual morality / anti rules weren't added to that list. If every moderator group in this world had a simple "no hate, treat others decently" policy, people like me wouldn't have to declare war on moderation and demand just to counteract the flood of that's happening right now.

@Mastodon Total PR disaster on Twitter folks, I think a lot of damage has been done when Mastodon was looking to really grow - shame.
