Many of you already do it but we want to ask and urge everyone on chaos.social and of course on other instances to add a CW (corona or covid19) to *all* toots in a relation with the corona virus pandemic. Additionally adding the #covid19 hashtag is also a good idea to filter the toots.
The topic is important but there are a lot of people that are for example in a risk group and really don't want to hear every bad joke or every new headline. Help them and be a nice citizen of this instance.
@ordnung Ich habe das gleich mal auf Twitter weiterempfohlen. https://twitter.com/chabis_ch/status/1238040056151060480
@ordnung If there’s one thing I can criticise about this toot, it it that it doesn’t have the CW itself.
@toni that's not how such an announcement works.
@ordnung, with these content warnings, you treat factual information itself like an infectious disease.
Methinks that's very counterproductive, but your instance, your rules. I'll play nicely.
@tatzelbrumm If you do not like our decisions, you are always free to choose another instance.
@ordnung, neenee. "Wenn's dir nicht passt, geh doch nach drüben!" brauchts jetzt auch noch nicht.
@ordnung It's also possible to filter just off a string in Mastodon, so that's also something to keep in mind.
As a member of disabled, diabetes, cardio and senior citizen risk groups, from my perspective it would be nice if jokes were labelled differently from important public health information and announcements.
What do you think?
@ordnung does this apply to boosts as well?
@Gargron rejected it because it's just encouraging bad behavior. but now posting without CW is considered bad behavior on this instance...
that's a conflict i have no solution for right now
