Below is a summary of rules you need to follow if you want to have an account on this server of Mastodon:
Welcome to our Brisbane Mastodon server.
⚖️ This is a moderated instance. Please read the rules and let us know using the report feature, or by any of the above contact methods when something is amiss.
We will do everything we can to keep the server up and running, but reserve the right to take the server offline for updates, maintenance or other housekeeping. We will try to keep outages to a minimum and announce them ahead of time.
Full disclosure, I (Ash) used to run this server back in 2018, but when I moved to Amsterdam a bunch of stuff broke and costs started to spiral so I shut it down. This time we've got more powerful dedicated hardware, and two admins to maintain the site so things are more future proof.
Per the Mastodon covenant, we take regular backups (every ten minutes). If we ever do need to shut the instance down we'll provide 3 months notice for you to export your content and migrate elsewhere.
Please note that this is a public server and you shouldn't use it to share private information. If you need to send private messages, we suggest using an encrypted messenger like Signal.
