plural.cafe instance meta (rules rewrite) 

Hello folks! @starfall speaking, we spent some time yesterday rewriting the rules section with an eye on making paragraphs shorter and our values more explicit.

They haven't taken effect yet; the draft can be seen at hackmd.io/@starfall/plural-caf

Some things are added to the old rules, not just reworded:

* "blatant advertising" -> "corporate advertising", with a specific exception for self-promotion
* explicitly sex and kink positive, but these must still be content warned appropriately
* explicitly sex worker positive, give or take some legal requirements
* required content warnings section added, with some of the most common triggers we know of
* some changes to the bot account policy - bots must be opt-in, not opt-out, automated posts shouldn't be on public
* more explicit federation policy around suspending some servers that don't block servers we suspend

Feel free to comment and suggest changes here or @ us directly.

we changed our input device on discord to our audio interface and suddenly all the audio on my pc got extremely compressed and corrupted? like it sounded like everything was coming out of a glitchy gameboy cartridge (like old pokemon creepypasta shit)

but, whew, restarting fixed it. that was legitimately scary (also kinda cool and interesting but legitimately scary due to our creepypasta upbringings djfjdj)

how do y'all interpret multiple commas in a row? what i mean is like,,, like that, when you type an ellipsis but with commas instead of periods.

i'm not quite sure how to describe how i interpret it. perhaps a mixture of "halfway between a comma and an ellipsis" and "an ellipsis but with more energy, like you're fidgeting while gathering your thoughts"

I miss being tied up 🥺 and I miss having somebody dress me up like a doll 🙈 (even though I never liked her fashion sense with my clothes hehehe) S

Thinking about the time my lady sat on the side of the bed and brushed my hair and called it pretty while I sat on her feet oh jeez 😳

They want us to believe that the internet wouldn't work without being bombarded by ads for apps that are just a screenshot of Age of Empires with a different name tagged on

sex take 

straight people treat sex like a sport

queers treat sex like a game

Maps, uni 

Do never ever take catography lessons at university. Because after that you will spot so many easy avoidable mistakes in maps. It will annoy you. And most people will just not care. >.<

If my fetishism doesn’t absolutely dominate the plural.cafe community timeline on a daily basis I am simply not doing my job correctly 😎K

I want to be safe in public space. Without having to try to pass as a binairy gender. I want to be. I want to be safe.

Afterlife is just folks working in a factory to make new souls to keep up with population growth. You can put in for transfer back to earth but we're really short staffed here and could really use you on the distiller, maybe next century though?

The Martian is a movie about how being neurodivergent makes you a better scientist and problem-solver, tbh.

i imagine posting here n interacting with other systems is like. we (as in our system) are all sitting around a campfire, surrounded by other campfires with various amounts of people. sometimes one of us says something funny at our campfire so we shout it out to the other campfires and yall laugh or discuss at your campfires when u like or boost a post. thats how it feels like. we're all burning what we can for the fuel for our respective camps, struggling in this world, but we can joke and mingle among the camps of other systems and it's like, oh good, there are other campfires, full of their own people trying to get through the day

sorry if this doesnt make much sense we're trying to illustrate a mind-picture

Love how the article ends:

"And if you’re trans yourself, remember you’re perfect and gorg the way that you are. You don’t look funny or awkward or whatever, bulge or no bulge. No one is looking at you as harshly as you look at yourself. I learned that passing and all of that is just a big scam, y’know? You gotta feel hot for you."
