Guidelines & Privacy Policy

The following guidelines are published as just that - guidelines for your behavior on this community-run server.

This isn't a legal document, a Terms Of Service, or anything like that, but there are some ground rules that I'd like you to understand. I am personally hosting this instance for my friends. This means that I am accepting the risk for doing so.

I am trusting all of you - my friends and community - not to break the law on here. Section 230 only goes so far ... and is being challenged by our current administration. So, generally speaking, please be kind to each other, extend the benefit of the doubt when in debate, and call out harassment and harmful behaviors to an admin so we can moderate it.

What you do on this server is encrypted, and will never be used for marketing or surveillance, but it is not anonymous. So please, don't break the law.
