These are the guidelines that members of naturism.social are expected to follow
Must have valid e-mail
Members are expected to maintain a valid e-mail address for their account. This is needed not only for registration but for receiving notifications as well. We will suspend or remove accounts without valid e-mail address on file.
Be kind and respectful to other users.
Please treat other Mastodon users the way you treat valued friends, so that this will be a safe and positive place for everyone.
Don't advertise or spam.
This is a place for people to connect to other people. It is not for advertisers, spammers, etc. Do not post spammy content. Do not include spammy content in your profiles. Do not use our direct messaging system to send spammy content or links to other users. We delete spam accounts as soon as we see them.
Do not post or share any illegal stuff such as:
advertisements, harassment, discrimination, xenophobia, racism, misogyny, casteism slurs, etc. You get the idea.
Do not post anything that is illegal in the USA.
Your avatar must be appropriate for a general audience (no full frontal nudity).
Your avatar is an image that represents you and appears next to messages (toots) that you send. You are welcome to upload a custom avatar image. But please, make sure your avatar image is a one that people will feel comfortable having on their computer screens while children are looking over their shoulders. So no erotic or gory avatars, please. Also, do not boost content from accounts of those who have erotic or gory avatars, as that would cause those avatars to display on our local timeline.
Add content warnings
if you are posting content that some users may wish to avoid, such as content that is erotic, gory, etc. This applies to text, pictures, audio, and videos. If you would not open that content in front of your boss/spouse/kids, use the content warning feature, and add specific warning text (for example: "gory photo of serious injury with lots of blood") so that users will have a general idea of what is behind your content warning. That way individual users will see the content warning, and decide for themselves if they want to click and view the content you have shared.
If you are sharing nudity of any kind please mark it as "sensitive" so we don't offend other instances in the fediverse.
Please use common sense.
Don't do illegal stuff, don't discriminate, don't be racist, sexist, etc.
Please report problem users
Please report users who violate our community guidelines. If you receive spam or harassment from another user, we want to hear about it. Use the 'report' feature or send a direct message to our admin team.
Filter out annoying people or content.
If you find a user who annoys you but is not violating our guidelines, we expect that you will deal with the issue by muting or blocking the account that annoys you, or by using Mastodon's filters to remove content that you dislike. That should solve the problem! If it doesn't, contact us.
Rude & Inappropriate users
Please do not engage with users who are being rude or inappropriate.
Let's keep politics at a minimum or off naturism.social entirely as this seems to be a sensitive subject & our goal here is not to upset others.
have fun and be nice to each other!
