It's become pretty clear in the last 24 hours that no matter what my moderation stance for this instance is, it's going to upset groups of people, and ultimately it then comes down to which groups of people I'm willing to upset.

The reality is we want this to be a safe place for everyone, and we want this to be somewhere folks can come and have sensible discussion. I'm going to be updating the server rules later today to try to articulate my views in a way that makes sense to all. (thread)

Just to clarify as people seem to have confused my earlier words.

There is no place for hate, discrimination or behaviour that targets groups on this instance. Our rules are clear about that.

If you see content that is from this instance and is encouraging that, please report it and/or email our support email. If you mention me I'll do something about it if I see it but I'm not here all day anymore and miss things.

We have no issue banning and deleting content that breaks our rules.

Oh shit it's half 1 in the morning. I should be asleep.

I've gone through this evening and suspended any MastodonApp.UK accounts where the users e-mail address has been flagged as complaints due to the e-mails we've sent resulting in us being unable to send them e-mails. If we're not able to send standard service e-mails, then their account is useless long term.

For keeping Mastodon up and running, there are 3 points where you can donate:

1. Your instance host
2. Mastodon Software development
3. Phone app development

You can also support your moderators by reporting posts that break the server rules, and by being kind to others.

For those curious, this was our AWS bill for November 2022. We only use AWS to run our e-mail services and the Media that you see on the site. The compute itself is hosted elsewhere.

At the moment this cost isn't sustainable for us, so we're going to be looking at some ways to cut the cost and in the not too distant future will be moving our media to alternative hosting.

tips to to make mods' jobs easier - include a clear description of the issue, and if possible select more than one post to show patterns of behaviour. And always select the "forward" option, because then the report goes to your server and the server the person is on

⚽ 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 With an exciting all-on-the-line match for Wales in the #football please be mindful of the majority of folks who are simply not watching, or watching it later on replay. Please add the CW "Football" or "Pel-droed" or "World Cup" so people can skip it if they prefer.

It would appear that my body has forgotten what sleep is and how to have it. Decided to just start work early and sleep at some point hopefully later.
