FAQ

  1. I saw a stray fifth symbol! Can you fix it?
    Look at our list of bugs on GitHub. If it's known, @rjl20 is probably working on it. If it's not known, add a bug or a PR on GitHub. Tooting at @rjl20 might or might not bring it into his vision as quickly as a GitHub addition.
  2. Can I post links that contain taboo symbols?
    Go for it. Validation skips links and it's not a faux pas at all.
  3. What if I post symbols that look similar to that taboo glyph?
    Don't. Mods will discard toots that do this, and if you don't stop, banning may follow.
  4. No problm I'll writ lik this.
    No. Stop. Don't do this.
  5. But this is hard?
    Practicing will bring you far.
  6. What synonym should I sub in for [x]?
    Try to stop looking for synonyms; if you try to swap out individual words, you'll find it tough going. Pull back and think abstractly about what you want to say and find words for that.

Social Contract

This social contract is an adaptation from Mastodon.social.

    2. Bots that post spam
    3. Pornography without a "CW" or "Tricky Topic" tag
    4. Horrific or traumatic posts without a "CW" or "Tricky Topic" tag
    5. That fifth symbol, or any variant of it, that is found in Latin script, including using "3" or homographic symbols in its spot. (Pics containing such may or may not stay, at mod whim.)
    6. Satirical brand accounts. (I'm looking at you, "Carl's Jr.")

  4. Any conduct which could stalk or harass participants or individuals, or stop individuals from participating in this community, or to impact usability and functionality of this community, or to harass anybody, or advocations that accounts do such actions, is not okay, and is grounds for banning any violators. This is activity such as:
    1. Continuing to talk to an individual that has said to stop, a platform's privacy tools notwithstanding.
    2. Posting, and/or sharing an individual's data or information without that individual's approval (informally known as doxing or dropping dox).
    3. Inciting accounts to post to an individual in additional discussion if that individual has said it should stop (informally known brigading or dogpiling).

All this notwithstanding, administrators of oulipo.social can ban any accounts, at any point, for any motivation, if not in violation of law.
