🚨 Thank you for your feedback. Since the general mood was positive, we have decided to adopt the policy change (https://github.com/chaossocial/about/pull/6/files).
So, if you have a bot on chaos.social, we'd like to ask you to make its posts unlisted.
If you're using a crossposter, please make at the very least all posts unlisted that contain retweets or broken twitter mentions ("firstname.lastname@example.org").
Unlisted posts are still accessible to both followers and non-followers, they just don't show up on the local timeline.
🚨 We want to introduce a new rule asking people here on chaos.social to keep automated posts (mostly bots and broken crossposts) unlisted, meaning the posts are public, but don't show up on the local timeline: https://github.com/chaossocial/about/pull/6/files
Please let us know your thoughts.

As of Friday, this instance has over 1000 users – let's say "welcome" to our latest arrivals!
We blocked (suspended) federation with preteengirls.biz because it's exactly what it sounds like. It's also been added to our list of blocked instances: https://github.com/chaossocial/about/blob/master/blocked_instances.md
After a lot of database migrations we now run mastodon v.2.0.0 at chaos.social. You could find the release notes at: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.0.0
There is currently a problem with our custom styles because of some changes but we'll have a look into this tomorrow.
