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 https://hackmd.io/@starfall/plural-cafe-rules-draft
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.
Well so you may know that i am struggling with getting a library membership in my city because they only have binairy genders in their forms. Just called the anti discrimination office for LGBTQI+ people (sadly not a spect inclusive) and the person said that they want to investigate and are responsible and they will try to change that. That was nice.
It's come to our attention that folks are missing quite a bit of Monsterpit's commit history. We don't have everything preserved, but we do have:
Always remember to gently the kobolds and that big tails never fail, folks.

you walk into my office, and I am sitting at my desk with my feet up. I look bored, possibly slightly annoyed. my office looks inanimate, yet also stern. its a business office, where business happens.
"so...why did you call me in here?" you ask, in a pitch that reveals a vague dread. you didnt know @rats had an office. you question if I knew I had an office also.
I tap the 6ft banner behind me with my cane, a quiet thwack that interrupts my sweet lo fi beats for a moment. you get the impression that this isn't the first time this has happened, and that maybe I had been practicing my cane thwacking in my spare time.
"friends don't let friends post images without alt text" is written, in bold black text on white canvas. the lettering is clear both in font and meaning. the canvas is also inanimate.
you nod solemnly, understanding your past mistakes, and make a mental note of it, possibly doing some research on how best to describe images, or where the feature is on your client. you implicitly know that I am always willing to help explain the importance of accessibility, should you need it.
the mistake doesn't happen again.
apparently the local aboriginal health clinic/therapy place noticed I hadn't been in for ages and called to make sure I was ok, which is something ive never had before
admittedly the person I saw there was painfully underequipped to help, but the fact they called makes me hopeful to try again. since psychmed either silently drop me from the wait list or just. dont have anyone who are able to help
