Server rules

Below is a summary of rules you need to follow if you want to have an account on this server of Mastodon:

  1. There is no tolerance for harassment or discrimination of any kind, directly or indirectly. For example: racism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia and TERF shit, fascism, general channer garbage, and so on.
  2. We're here to encourage and support each other, and hopefully make pals (and make videogames less bad)! I will remove accounts that: Are inactive for a year, haven't posted anything within two months of their creation, or are just here for promotion (it probably won't help FYI).
  3. You must use content warnings following the usual Mastodon etiquette; for example for politics, 'adult'/lewd content, eye contact, food, mental health … if in doubt ask first please!

Expectations of Staff

You can expect moderators and admins to:

  • Do their best to provide a place where people can feel comfortable and not harassed. However, due to the nature of the Fediverse, we can not guarantee a safespace.
  • Pro-active moderation. Check the local and federated timelines to make sure the rules are kept to, and block and silence instances who do not meet the instance's rules. Be aware of actions taken by other instances so problems can be avoided before they reach gamemaking.social members.
  • Respond to reports and messages as quickly as possible (within a day or two), and provide feedback.
  • Always respond to reports sent in good-faith, where possible.
  • If the instance admin needs to leave efforts will be made to transfer it to a new admin, and as much notice as possible will be given.

Other Guidelines and Notes

  • gamemaking.social does not claim ownership of anything you post. You retain full rights.
  • Account deletion by owners is enabled.
  • There's no Google stuff or anything else gross. In your adblocker you'll just need to make sure gamemaking.social and cf.mastohost.com (media storage) are allowed.
  • We're hosted on masto.host, on the 'niche' plan. I believe the servers are in so-called Canada and France.
  • Staff accounts are: @gamemakingtools.
  • Don't forget to make an #introductions post :D
