✨Plush✨ City Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct in a Nutshell

Discrimination & Bigotry Won’t Be Tolerated.

Leave your hatred at the door.

Treat this Space and Those Within it with Respect.

Listen actively to and honor the requests of others; always respond with compassion first.

If you’re ever unsure, ask first. Use CWs where required.

Listen; Don’t Make Excuses.

If you’re accused of causing harm, either take some responsibility or ask moderators for help.

Don’t Break the Law Here.

The whole space may be liable if you do.

Use the Report Feature.

All reports go straight to our moderation team. We’re here to help!

Full Code of Conduct

Plush.city is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

This code of conduct applies to all Plush.city spaces, including Mastodon and any organizational spaces defined by Plush.city staff, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Plush.city administrators and moderation team.

Some Plush.city spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.

Definitions of Harassment

Harassment includes:

  • Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, age, race, or religion.
  • Unwelcome comments regarding a person's lifestyle choices and practices, including those related to food, health, parenting, drugs, and employment.
  • Deliberate misgendering or use of 'dead' or rejected names.
  • Gratuitous or off-topic sexual images or behaviour in spaces where they're not appropriate.
  • Physical contact and simulated physical contact (eg, textual descriptions like "*hug*" or "*backrub*") without consent or after a request to stop.
  • Threats of violence.
  • Incitement of violence towards any individual, including encouraging a person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm.
  • Deliberate intimidation.
  • Stalking or following.
  • Harassing photography or recording, including logging online activity for harassment purposes.
  • Sustained disruption of discussion.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Pattern of inappropriate social contact, such as requesting/assuming inappropriate levels of intimacy with others
  • Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease.
  • Deliberate "outing" of any aspect of a person's identity without their consent except as necessary to protect vulnerable people from intentional abuse.
  • Publication of non-harassing private communication.

Plush.city prioritizes marginalized people's safety over privileged people's comfort. Plush.city administrators and moderation team reserves the right not to act on complaints regarding:

  • 'Reverse' -isms, including 'reverse racism,' 'reverse sexism,' and 'cisphobia'
  • Reasonable communication of boundaries, such as "leave me alone," "go away," or "I'm not discussing this with you."
  • Communicating in a 'tone' you don't find congenial
  • Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions

Members of Law Enforcement

Plush.city as a space is primarily inhabited by minority communities who are frequently and have historically been the victims of violence, harassment and unfair treatment by members of law enforcement, military personelle and their allies and affiliates.

As such, Access to this service or its content by members of law enforcement (or military personelle or their allies or affiliates) is strictly forbidden.

This includes (but is not limited to): Law Enforcement Officers / Police Officers / Peace Officers, The FBI, CIA, or NSA, The US Military (inclusive of all branches), Active Military Personelle, and any organization or individual affiliated with any of the above.

Your Account

Accounts on plush.city are expected to be created with the intention of interacting with the community in some way. We will suspend user accounts which do not demonstrate good faith efforts to do so within a week of account creation. This process will be expedited for accounts which do not appear to be organic (as in, created directly by a sentient intelligence), or were created from points of origin registered to non-consumer-serving commercial entities.

Content Warnings and Sensitive Images

Content Warnings (CWs) are a feature of Mastodon that enable you to hide the body of a "toot" (post) behind a line of text. The intended use of this feature is to provide a way to discuss sensitive and/or potentially harmful topics without causing duress or harm to anyone who might stumble upon it, though it may be used for many other things.

Images can be marked as sensitive; this is a feature which hides an image until a warning banner is clicked. Images may be marked as sensitive separately from Content Warnings, though using a Content Warning automatically marks the toot's images as sensitive.

Clearly communicated and accurately labeled content warnings and sensitive image settings are required when having public conversations involving any of the following topics or content:

  • Sexual or Adult content
  • Detailed descriptions of harassment as outlined above in the definitions of harassment
  • Political Commentary of any kind
  • Drugs or Drug Use
  • Advertisements for Corporations
  • "Rage" toots and Toots using exclusively capital letters
  • Excessively Long Toots (longer than ~20 lines)


If you are being harassed by a member of Plush.city, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the Plush.city administrators and moderation team using the Report User/Toot feature or via email to Mawr directly at solei@corticalstack.net. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.

This code of conduct applies to Plush.city spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of Plush.city outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by Plush.city members, especially Plush.city's administrators and moderation team, seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from Plush.city based on their past behavior, including behavior outside Plush.city spaces and behavior towards people who are not in Plush.city.

In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.

We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we've received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Plush.city members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.


Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, Plush.city administrators and moderation team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Plush.city spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Plush.city members or the general public.

Participants (or parties interacting with participants) who violate the code outlined above will be warned where applicable. When a warning does not result in adequate correction within a reasonable timeframe (or in cases where moderation deems a warning unwarranted) the offender will be suspended from the instance.


This instance is administered by the site owner, @mawr. Additional moderation support is provided by @Solitaire.
