It's really nice to see events like this going down. Bringing two opposing gang factions together to face each other's differences, reconcile bad vibes between the two, and garner some appreciation for each other's struggles.
It's a BLM movement I could get behind.
@mk a trans friend of mine wants to join the instance and was wondering if they were considered protected under your CoC

Don't blame the hammer manufacturer when someone gets their head bludgeoned by a hammer
And just like the last time I tried out Gutenberg, I already found a bug within the first five minutes.
I don't think many people really asked for something like Gutenberg. When you're really particular about the formatting and whatnot in your text, as I am with many of my guides, it's hard to actually manage to write in Gutenberg without being tripped up by the tool.
This is why I made my own server, and how fun it was :)
At this point, this is mostly a testing instance. I'm curious about the moderation and administration features available to Mastodon. I want to use the knowledge to better communicate with admins in the future.
