Fedi/masto advice, ettiquette 

By participating in Mastodon etc I argue everyone has at least a little responsibility to keep the house clean, so to speak. The network and federation is about cooperation, not about competition. Community instead of social capital.

Given that, many of Mastodon's features are chosen the way they are to avoid encouraging certain behaviors like dogpiling and subtooting/passive aggression. Don't screenshot-quote people without consent. Engage constructively if at all.


Fedi/masto advice, ettiquette 

I've said this many times before but Mastodon is a unique opportunity to rewrite the rules of social engagement in social media. Please give some thought to what you are posting and participating in here and we can make Mastodon so much more than "Birdsite refuge." Let's be excellent to each other by default.

Awoo Space

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!
