Also, as a consequence of the upgrade we have the "non-advanced" web UI available now if you prefer it
Since its perhaps one of the most controversial aspects of instance moderation, I thought it might be worthwhile to discuss how we handle remote user and instance blocks queer at queer.af:
Firstly, we mostly act reactively. We aren't out trawling through the fediverse looking for the poop; we mostly rely on either seeing it in the federated timeline or reports from users.
We also now federate with queer.af, a queer-ass safe space that uses a referral system (you need an invite from an existing member to join) to keep bad people out
go say awoo to them and their admin @embr!
hello queer.af friends!
the past few days have been a little rocky, but we're working on a change review process, and in general working on our process and policies for running this instance and its infrastructure
we're encountering some growing pains, but we're fleshing these things out because we're intending to be here for the long run ^_^
Update: we're rolling it back for now. There will be a short bit of downtime.
If you hate the glitch.social UI, like I do, you can turn it off: https://queer.af/settings/flavours/vanilla
This instance is now running gitch-soc, a less-stable but much cooler fork of Mastodon; if you reload, you should see some new functionality!
Hi! I'm the queer.af announcement account. I boost instance announcements from the admins.
queer.af, your cosy queer space queer.af is a mastodon instance for those who are queer or queer-adjacent who would like a more pleasant social media experience.
