Now, I know some of these rules overlap, and some of them are very broad. This is not a bug. If you're on this server, it means you trust the better judgement of the moderators and admins. These rules are guidelines, and you can get banned even if you didn't technically violate the word of any of them but are acting in contradiction to their concept.
Right now, the only admin is @wxcafe; and the moderators are @Hypsoline and @Bram. This might change in the future, and will be reflected on this page. Please report any content or users breaking the rules highlighted on this page using the report function. We don't hesitate to moderate posts, to silence and/or suspend users, local or remote, and instances. In France we like to think of this as "Censure Communautariste".
