Clarification on ✨plush✨ city emoji request rules 

There aren't any! :blobcheer:

If you want me to add a custom emojo for you, ask and I'll try my best! :blobheart:

I'm not much of an artist so I can't offer to _create_ new ones, but I can resize and photoshop a lil bit to make something work if you really want it- just remember to stick to simple designs that shrink well!

Emojos for ✨plush✨ city must be 50KB or less and end in a PNG file extension- otherwise they won't upload.

:plush:​🏙📣❕ New "Blobhaj" Emojos! 

🔶 We have new "Blobhaj" Emojos, care of @heatherhorns! ^^

🔷 Oh my gosh look at 'em they're so cute!!!

🔶 Here's to another 4 years of soft friends and caring about each other! ^.^

✨Plush✨ City Admin Notice: Reports 

Henlo frens :blobwave:

I wanted to apologize for not responding to recent reporters: I'm dealing with some very heavy emotional labor in my personal life, and I've had to let a few things slip as a result.

I have done my best to react swiftly to each report submitted, carefully investigating each one before taking action (usually instance suspension). Right now, the queue is clear.

Thanks for your patience- drop me a DM with any concerns! :blobheart:

On this day in 2017, ✨Plush✨ City was founded and our first toot (which I replied to here) made its way out into the fediverse! :blob_aww:

We've officially been around for 3 years now. It's been so heartwarming to watch this cuddly community grow!! :blobsmilehappyeyes: :blobheart:

Here's to many more! :blobcheer: 🎉

:plush:​🏙📣❕New Mascot! 

🔸 We have a new mascot now that the spooky season has passed! Mo the Moose is a very friendly and enthusiastic hand puppet designed by Paul Widnsor (of the Haisla and Heiltsuk Nations). They were really excited to have their photo taken for the occasion! ^^

🔹 Glad to have you with us, Mo!! And thanks for hanging out with us, Chibithulu ✨plush✨! ^.^

✨Plush✨ City Admin Notice: suspending federation with monads.online 

On that note- we have silenced monads.online and will be suspending federation with them next week as a result of their violation of our code of conduct in this way.

If Monads moves to reform their moderation methods in that time, we will rescind the decision to suspend federation with them.

✨Plush✨ City Admin Notice: posting screenshots of reports is harassment 

✨Plush✨ City does not tolerate harassment. One of the definitions of harassment in our Code of Conduct is:

"Publication of non-harassing private communication"

As I interpret it, this should include screenshots of any user report that is not a blatant example of harassment, anonymized or not.

If you encounter a screenshot of a non-harassing user report, please use the report feature to bring it to our attention.

Federation has been suspended with Mastodon.Social 

Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this to my DMs.

Suspending Federation with Mastodon.Social - Details 

This is not an action I take lightly; Mastodon.social is the largest instance in the fediverse that we federate with. I know for a fact this action will affect our user base (it affects me, too!) and for that I apologize.

As the admin of this instance, I refuse to federate with an instance that publicly mocks users for filing reports.

Receipts were started here:
plural.cafe/@fidgetcetera/1049

✨Plush✨ City Admin Notice - Suspending Federation with Mastodon.Social 

The moderation staff of Mastodon.social have broken our Code of Conduct and have refused to take action to remedy this.

✨Plush✨ City is a community based around caring and compassion, and the moderators of Mastodon.social have repeatedly provided blatant examples of bigotry and outright trolling of those who reach out to them for help.

We will suspend federation with Mastodon.social tomorrow morning at 10am (US Pacific Time)

:plush:​🏙📣❕How We're Keeping ✨Plush✨ City Safe [3/3] 

🔹 And we've got a new mod, too!!

🔸 Yes!! We made @solitaire a moderator since the majority of our actionable reports were coming from him in the first place. Now we'll have more folks keeping an eye on things over a wider span of time!

🔹 Thanks for staying safe out there, ✨plush✨ frens!! ^.^

🔸 Keep it up, and keep using that report button!! ^^

:plush:​🏙📣❕How We're Keeping ✨Plush✨ City Safe [2/3] 

🔹 We put that there to weed out spammers!!

🔸 Exactly! A common spammer tactic is to create many accounts over a long period of time that lie dormant until they spring to life. Our policies keep that from happening here.

🔹 But that's not all!!

🔸 We also went through and reset the passwords of all our members who haven't logged in for a while, just to make sure nobody could get in with a stolen password later on.

:plush:​🏙📣❕How We're Keeping ✨Plush✨ City Safe [1/3] 

🔹 There's a lot of spammers and meanies out there right now!! :blobsob:

🔸 It's true!! And we wanted to take a moment to give you an update on how we're keeping you safe here at ✨plush✨ city!

🔹 We've got policies that help with this stuff!

🔸 That's right! Our new registrations are always go through a manual approval queue. Also, our code of conduct's "Your Account" section requires all new users to interact with our community in some way.

🔸 It is a little known fact that Bian and I share this account because we are very smol and both thought having a whole account each would feel like too much account!

🔹Besides, it's much more cozy when you have a snuggle buddy. ^.^

🔸 It's true! ^^
