Federation/Follow Bot Policy Show more
If you run a federation bot or a follow bot. Please prevent it from indexing thequietplace.social users.
We are here because it is an escape from the normal bustle of larger instances. We'd prefer to stay out of the limelight and out of timelines unless explicitly followed by individuals.
A quick and friendly heads up Show more
Per new and old discussions with our users some policies will be made more public soon.
- No follow bots
- No follow friday tagging
- More visible block/silence policy (we follow compassion.online's 'The List' with tweaks per user request/input)
- New user policy - invite only, 51% approval for those who vote over a 5 day period
What do you think of the following when it comes to FF Show more
Follow Friday Policy
Given this instance is something of a 'Quiet place in the woods' for users. We politely ask that you do not tag our users in #FollowFriday posts. If you're not sure, don't tag our users is a good rule of thumb. Some of our users have even gone so far as to add #NoFF to their profiles to be very clear they don't want to be tagged.
We respectfully ask that you honor this policy when it comes to #FollowFriday.
Heads up. NEW instance found and blocked.

THE LIST, it's back!
A curated list of crappy instances, dangerous places and of course SAFE SPACES is back online.
If you have an account here and go to set it up in an app use 'mastodon.thequietplace.social' for the instance URL.
Our accounts are [email protected] but the instance lives at mastodon.thequietplace.social which is what apps and 3rd party services will need for a URL.
We have an *actual* website deployed finally.
