Rules

These rules apply to your username, display name, profile pictures, toots, and boosts.

TL;DR

  • No illegal content
  • No hate speech
  • Tag NSFW content
  • Be civil
  • No spam
  • No doxxing
  • No impersonation


Prohibited Content

The following content is not allowed and may lead to warnings and/or suspensions:
  • Illegal activities or links to them
  • Lolicon
  • Hate speech
  • Discrimination (racism, transphobia, religious intolerance, ...)
  • Harassment
  • Promotion of fake information
  • Doxxing

This is not an exhaustive list, but the concept should be more than clear.

As we believe in free speech, we still allow discussion of the topics listed above. Where the line is drawn between free speech and hate speech is obvious (and is defined by European laws too - re-read: "no illegal activities"). We will not allow hate speech hidden behind the banner of free speech.

Exploiting the instance's resources is not allowed. For example, creating an account with the sole purpose to upload media and use our CDN for your own purposes (e.g. hosting of static content for your website) is not allowed. I am providing this instance as a free of charge service, don't abuse it or its features.

If you find content that is breaking the rules. Report it and we will review the report as soon as possible.

NSFW Content

NSFW (not safe for work) content is allowed with the following restrictions:
  • All NSFW content must be tagged as sensitive
  • Explicit NSFW content must be set to unlisted or to followers-only
  • NSFW avatars and headers are not allowed

Impersonation

Creating an account with the intention of impersonating someone (be it another ichii.moe user, staff member, celebrity, ...) is prohibited.
For example, creating an account named Gargron*, Lain*, RobertDowneyJr, moderator, ichiimoe, ... without actually being said person is not allowed. You cannot change your username once you register.

*in case you are not aware: these are two major developers of the fediverse (Gargron is the main Mastodon developer, while Lain is a Pleroma developer)

Advertisements

Ads are not allowed. Exceptions are made for posts such as "I am going live on Twitch at ..." as long as they are not spammy.

Bot Restrictions

Bot users are allowed with the following limitations:
  • Do not track users
  • Set the "Bot" flair in the profile settings as well as appending the :bot: tag at the end of the display name
  • Post a link to the source code in the bot profile
  • Acknowledge the #nobot tag on user profiles across the whole federation
  • Provide a useful service (e.g. a bot posting the same thing every X minutes is not considered useful)
  • Follow the content restrictions applied above
  • Maximum post frequency: 1 toot / 30 minutes (otherwise post unlisted)
    • If posting every 30 minutes still results in the bot cluttering up the local timeline too much you will be asked to reduce the post frequency of public toots

Moderation of Other Instances

We are a very open instance that allows you to moderate the content you see yourself.
Therefore, we only suspend instances that contain:
  • Illegal activities

...and we only silence those that post:
  • Untagged porn content
  • Untagged lolicons

This is to maintain a timeline that users can feel safe to browse on their phones and computers while in public areas. You can still follow and receive updates from users from silenced instances.

We will always prefer suspending/silencing single users than whole instances.

You can view the list of moderated accounts and instances on GitHub. This might change as our instance federates with new ones.

If you believe your instance has been silenced or suspended unfairly contact us.
