Jump: Welcome ! - Rules - Specs - Terms



Welcome !

This is an open Mastodon instance, basically.
It's run by the person you see on the right (that's me!) and for now, that's all.
There might be more admins and moderators later if the needs come but alas not yet.
We runs Mastodon Glitch Edition.

I hope this instance works okay for you, and that you can find a nice and welcoming community here! Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or requests, be it about this instance, how to make your own instance, or other things not related to Mastodon.

I am actually the only sysadmin of this instance and I can't work full-time on mhz.social so, I will do whatever I can in a reasonable time to make it works the best it can.

Rules

This instance has some rules, of course.
First, there are the usual : no sexism, no racism, no hate speech, no LGBTQphobia, no nazis, no spam, no public unflagged porn, etc...
Then, I also believe it's important to remind you that this server was made and is run by a queer activist.
This server thrives to be inclusive, and I will ban without much regret.
People are encouraged to use the report function as they see fit, and can be confident that their complaints will be heard and dealt with in some way. I want everyone to feel safe here, and if that doesn't sound like something you like, you should probably find another server.

This instance, and this entire social network in my opinion, is dedicated to reclaiming social media, decentralizing, and generally creating better and more engaging communities.


Specs

Currently running on Hetzner Cloud hardware.
One CX21-CEPH with Nginx, Mastodon WEB, Mastodon Sidekiq and Minio as a S3 assets manager endpoint, PostgreSQL and Redis.
Backups are taken one time per day using the dedicated paid option of Hetzner.
