Hello World! Welcome to mastodon@bauhaus, our small niche in the fediverse.
This server is run by the nerds roving around @maschinenraum
, a small hackspace
We run our own server in a local data centre just down the road, so there's no cloud here – however, that also means if it breaks, it breaks. And it will happen every now and then, and there are backups, and it's mostly fine, but don't expect 100% uptime – 99% will have to do.
We're part of the Chaos family surrounding the Chaos Computer Club, so you can meet us at events like the C3 and get to know your admins!
There are some basic rules for this server, please try to follow them.
We believe in cyberanarchism; and like any good old-fashioned anarchist collective, we look out for each other. Therefore we will not tolerate behaviors resembling...
...you probably get the picture.
If you don't, well, you might eventually get yourself banned and then you can't play with the cool kids anymore.
Consequently, we also do not federate with servers that have no moderation or where these behaviors are accepted/tolerated/encouraged.
- Content Warnings are nice. Please use them when appropriate. As an example: Posts about food, violence or mental health issues should be tagged. If in doubt, use them. People that do not want to see CW's can toggle them off in their settings.
- If you use automated posts (bots, twitter crossposts, etc.) please post them unlisted (not appearing in the local timeline, still visible to everyone). Social media is about interaction, so we like to have some of that in our local timeline, too.
- We do not like twitter. Please avoid links to birdside. If we wanted to see it, we had an account over there.
- Oh, and because we're not really huge fans of this whole capitalism thing: no ads for stupid stuff. Thanks. :)
If you encounter any problems, feel free to contact the admins: @aurora
Registration is currently "request only" due to an influx of spambots. Please use the "why do you want to join" box to let us know you're human (or a nice non-human). To make it easier for us to filter spam registrations and let us know that you have read the rules please tell us about your favorite forest creature. And please give us some time, it might take a day before someone reviews pending registrations.
