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.
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:
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
