NOTE: If anyone wants to be added to this list just let me know.

Ok so this seems to be most of the people who publicly stated they had interest in developing the "United Federation of Instances". All of you should have gotten the first draft and opinions were heard and discussed.

Today I will be moving the first draft over to git (either or From there I will encourage each of you to provide suggestions as to edits there, and raise discussions in issues. This way we will be public and have an open transparent forum that keeps the changes on record.

While public feedback is being debated on the proposal I will begin a rough draft on the complete by laws (which will try to represent the broader points in the proposal document). That too will be on gitlab and open to discussion

From there as the movement grows we can begin discussing launching it.

I suggest all communication on the fediverse about this use the hashtag so it is easily searchable.

Since this is a public post I will now share the link to the early draft here, please keep in mind everything here is open for discussion so if anyone doesnt like the current direction, please speak up, we want you to be heard.

I disagree with "6. Nudity and pornography must be posted either unlisted,
with a content warning, or both." Sex workers shouldn't be treated as something shameful that needs to be hidden. Nudity is ultimately, normal and healthy, and should be treated as such.



That is worth a debate once it goes to git. I agree that sex workers should not be shamed. If they wish to show pictures of themselves that arent nude they are welcome to do so. But at the same time most people dont want nudity in their feed, especially when they view it in public spaces. It isnt about the sex workers or if their work is shameful or not, its more about nudity showing up on peoples screen at work or other places where it will get people fired.

this is kinda a non-issue because there are already MRFs to force censor instances and users if that's what the locals want.


Yes we could potentially handle this by having a shared list of instances that allow nudity in plain site.. users can then choose to adopt that block list if they want.

The problem with this approach is that it forces users to either block nudity entierly, or allow it in plain view. In the end I think this will harm people who wish to share nudity since it will force people to block them even if they want to see it some of the time. By requiring a CW instead these people will get more exposure since users can choose to uncover the CW or not and thus arent forced to take an all-or-nothing approach.

I need to check the mod tools on mastodon... you might be right. I've only seen blocking all media, and ive been able to make media senative from an individual user... gotta see hwo we do that on an instance level... worth discussing.. lets try to leave that to GIT once its posted.
