guys.... it really is not that hard...
even after registrations have been locked because people would just jump in and do this over and over and over, i still see old users breaking these rules, even after being warned about them already. if you can't follow the rules you're going to be banned, so please actually look at them and consider what you're posting or boosting.
i don't want to keep banning people for doing this shit that's really simple to avoid. even if you get warned for breaking a different rule one or two times (perhaps in fringe cases), seriously go look at the rules and make sure you know what they are. people not reading the rules is the reason why registration had to be locked in the first place. it would be nice to open them back up again at some point but that ain't gonna' happen unless people learn to read.
i don't care who you follow or what you favorite, or even just who you are as a person or what viewpoints you have, but please keep boosts and posts within the rules of this site. if you don't like it, you can find a different instance.
>no NSFW avatar
Now that's just tyrannical...
Don't know why, but I never expected a rule against NSFW avatars would even be needed.
I honestly never imagined there would be people that wanted a NSFW image as an avatar in the first place. Guess I'm not degenerate enough.
@BlinkRape @PhenomX6 @beardalaxy
I honestly thought the same, but I started to feel like I'm the odd one out here, like i'm the weird one among fedi users.
@alyx @BlinkRape @PhenomX6 I hop on when I'm on breaks at work or like, in public waiting for food and shit like that, and I've got the sensitive filter enabled on my phone for that reason.
@nukie why do you think so? if you boost something it becomes a part of your profile, and if your profile is on this instance the content there has to follow the rules of this instance.
if someone could just boost whatever the hell they wanted they could circumvent all the rules. don't really understand what's so gay and retarded about not letting people do that.
@nukie if you lurk on the local tab you'll see boosts actually. Replies too. If you just click into it for the first time it will only show direct posts though.
Plus, followers will see boosts on their home timeline so people can report things if they see them there. Sometimes I'll see reports with no reasoning and I'll have to go through the profile to check and it's usually a boost (if anything). I'd rather not see people following someone on GL with the expectation that they're following our rules only to boost something that breaks them (especially if it's something like 3D loli/shota or worse).
@beardalaxy @nukie I think boosts in the local tl broke.
It's mainly there so the content isn't visible on the user's public profile page.
Mainly gaming/nerd instance for people who value free speech. Everyone is welcome.
@beardalaxy sorry mister, I'll try my best to follow da rules
