Quick PSA for other instances: supports html formatting so if you're on mainline or a fork that doesn't support html* formatting you might not see all the information in a toot. Click on the date (or open the toot in a browser if you're using an app) to see it on our server

*this should be italics

Hi! Just gonna announce some new fedifriends in a fast manner. I'll do a quick toot for each to avoid mass-mentions. Please join me in a very welcoming awoo :janiawoo:

We no longer have reason to believe that the mod team isn't doing its job, so the silence has been lifted

We're sticking with the silence on That means you won't see any notifications from there unless you follow the person it comes from.

Remember that all silenced instances (two right now) are marked in the allowlist on

Also you can always report anything you want the mod team to see (though you should just @ noiob for the good shark content)

PSA: Went ahead and silenced, since the mod team seems to be proud of not moderating their instance. Will probably move to a block if the situation doesn't change.

sorry awoo, I forgot to restart the hecking backend, watch as the rest of the fediverse starts existing again

minor update

  • fixes the bug where private-toots were being boosted to the wrong audience
  • we have rich text support now, turn writing it on in the settings ( and add a quick selector from the glitchsoc popover settings menu if you want

Sorry for the downtime! There was a problem with the server that was out of our control. It'll take a while until the instance catches up with the rest of the fediverse

Awoospace announcement 

Starting now there's two ways to get an account on

If you have an existing account on the fediverse and want an alt or a new main here, you can just fill out the form on the start page. Remember to fill out the "Why do you want to join?" part so we can approve your application.

If you don't have an existing account on the fediverse, you can have an active member of the community direct mesage an admin or moderator. This is basically the old "get a friend to vouch for you" way, so people can recommend awoo to friends who make their first account in the fediverse.

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have! We hope that this new system will make it easier for people to sign up to awoo with us :janiawoo:​!

Jani - 家内 [jia nei]'s choices:

Awoo Space is a Mastodon instance where members can rely on a team of moderators to help resolve conflict, and limits federation with other instances using a specific access list to minimize abuse.

While mature content is allowed here, we strongly believe in being able to choose to engage with content on your own terms, so please make sure to put mature and potentially sensitive content behind the CW feature with enough description that people know what it's about.

Before signing up, please read our community guidelines. While it's a very broad swath of topics it covers, please do your best! We believe that as long as you're putting forth genuine effort to limit harm you might cause – even if you haven't read the document – you'll be okay!
