about moon holiday

we're a community dedicated to amplifying the voices of marginalized individuals, eroding kyriarchal power structures, and building the best world(s) we can collectively imagine

this instance is loosely dedicated to speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, magical realism etc.) and firmly dedicated to social justice -- particularly it's about the intersection of the two. this instance is for imagining a universe which transcends imperial colonialism, racism, transphobia, and other ills of our contemporary society

if you are a creator of art/writing/film/games/etc dealing with these themes, moon holiday is for you. if you partake in media analysis discussing positive and problematic takes in art and fiction, moon holiday is for you. if you are a fan or if you just want a pleasant social experience, moon holiday is for you as well

there are no restrictions on what's appropriate to post here (except as outlined in the code of conduct below), so you can expect a lot of general internet whatever. this is not a super serious instance as you might guess

in addition to the general conduct guidelines below, moon holiday also asks members: please caption all images/video you post to public timelines. if you are unable to properly caption your images/video, please post them followers-only. we want the fediverse to be accessble to as many people as possible

Code of Conduct

Note: "moon holiday" in this document refers to the moon holiday Mastodon instance at https://moon.holiday . "The administrators" refers to the administrators on this organization: currently @red@moon.holiday .

moon holiday 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 moon holiday spaces, including public channels, private channels and direct messages, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the administrators.

Types of Harassment

  • 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

  • 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
  • Jokes that resemble the above, such as "hipster racism", still count as harassment even if meant satirically or ironically.
  • Microaggressions, which take the form of everyday jokes, put downs, and insults that spread humiliating feelings to people of marginalized groups

The administrators will not 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
  • Criticism of racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions

Reporting

If you are being harassed by a member of moon holiday, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an administrator (listed at the top of this document) directly or file a report using the Mastodon reporting system (click the "..." on a post and then use the reporting feature).

The admins reserve the right to exclude people from moon holiday based on their past behavior, including behavior outside moon holiday spaces and behavior towards people who are not in moon holiday. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.

Consequences

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the administrators may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all moon holiday spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other moon holiday members or the general public.

Updates

The administrators reserve the right to update the Code of Conduct at any time at their discretion. Updates to the CoC will be communicated to users via posts from admin accounts. If you have any concerns about or suggestions for the CoC, please contact an administrator via DM.

Privacy Policy

The data you post here lives somewhere on the internet, to be honest i don't fully understand how all this works. moon holiday is hosted on masto.host and as such the data is subject to the masto.host privacy policy reviewable here: https://masto.host/privacy/

This is an ActivityPub federated server. This means that other people on other federated servers can find you, send you messages, etc. This also means that any information you put in posts, whether they are public or private, might end up "federated" -- basically, a copy of your post gets put on any server that reads your post.

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other moon.holiday users, and only ever @ mention other moon.holiday users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
