30-54 is a gun-friendly Mastodon social network.
The @administrator account is a separate account I made that I can post official announcements from. @r3df0x is also an administrator but I made @administrator so I can include it as a default follow without having all new users follow me by default. I suggest that everyone follow it so they can be up-to-date.
To the maximum extent possible, I will allow the community to regulate itself and encourage self moderation though actions such as blocking or choosing who to follow. I don't want to intervene to remove content or ban users if at all possible. The unfortunate reality is that allowing a toxic cesspool to fester would be counterproductive to the goal of this platform and any hateful content would most likely be off-topic anyway.
To the extent possible, I will try to limit objectionable content rather then deleting it or banning users.
Users should worry about being banned for jokes or giving their opinion. I will work with them if possible and let them know if anything they post is objectionable while allowing them to be as unrestricted as possible.
Within reason. Blatant racism and bigotry will not be allowed but I'm leaning toward passive removal of such content rather then banning anyone except in the cases of obvious trolls.
Aside from extreme cases, I welcome people of all different political backgrounds and lifestyles, including people who may be anti-gun. With that said, no one is entitled to an audience and I encourage self moderation where users block anyone whose posts they don't want to see. If you post provocative content or are anti-gun and especially if you aren't open to changing your opinion, don't expect to have an audience.
To the maximum extent possible, I will avoid banning users. The primary form of moderation will be left up to individual users to block any users they have trouble with. When this is not effective I will step in.
These are the actions I will take in order how likely I will use them:
Usernames must not mislead users. They should not claim to represent an administrator or other authority or give the appearance of such authority. Usernames also must not impersonate other users. Two users may in good faith share the same display name.
If your username was stolen or hijacked before you created an account, you can send a DM to @r3df0x explaining the situation. Usernames may be usurped on a case by case basis.
Users are permitted to promote their own off-site content or to promote or advertise for others for hire or mutual promotion so long as they contribute their own content to the site. If you are actively creating engaging content on the platform, you can give shout-outs to people or products that sponsor or promote you, but your content doesn't generate engagement or most of your content is promotion then such promotion will be considered spam. Links to your own content off the platform follow a similar rule.
Other websites have a 1 in 10 policy where 10% of a user's content can be self promotion. I don't have a strict rule like that, but only a minority of your content should be promotion.
All users are strongly advised to remove any identifying information from screenshots if they are potentially calling negative attention to someone. Screenshots are preferred to links. This policy does not apply to public figures or anyone with a large online following. Intentionally provoking brigading or dogpiling is never allowed.
This platform may freely be used for discussion of non firearm related content but it is advised that they contribute in some way to the purpose of the platform. I don't have any plans to ban users or remove content but I'd like to keep within the intent of the platform if possible.
Users should feel free to post about anything they want that they would discuss normally on any other Twitter-style site but I prefer that post on-topic content as well.
Certain users may be added as default follows for new users if they have a lot of followers or have a lot of engagement with their posts. I will add default follows automatically but if you feel that you qualify you can send a message to @r3df0x.
