Code of Conduct

Liberdon's community adopts a "good neighbor" policy, as one of our goals is outreach to the other communities. As such, "ostracizable" (non-tolerated) behavior includes spamming, scamming, nudity* / pornographic / sexual / graphic / NSFW content, advocacy of the initiation of violence, ethnic/racial/homophobic slurs, harassment, or other content/activity that could get this site shut down by state agents with guns. Offending content will need to be removed by the user, and repeat offenders will be banned from the community.

We strive to be "work-friendly", so if you post anything that's allowable under our policy but may reasonably be considered objectionable, please use a CW (content warning) to tag it as such.

Note: If your account is primarily going to use aggregated/auto-posts, please enable the "This is a bot account" option in your profile, and ensure your bot isn't posting so often that it's overwhelming the local timeline (up to a few posts per hour on average is a good rule of thumb).

Moderation activities will be as transparent as possible, with rationales for each action. The community will have the opportunity to review and give input on actions, and the moderation team will be responsive to that.

Basically, just try to be a reasonable, productive member of Liberdon :)

* Nudity exceptions - the following are okay: Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures; Breastfeeding (with content warning); Nudity in photos of political expression or significance (with content warning). Examples that don't qualify as exceptions: Nudity in digital art; Nudity with political text simply added to it; etc. Another good rule of thumb is "use common sense" ;)

What is 'bird site'?

It's a legacy social media site also known as 'Twitter'. If you go to this tweet and reply from your birdsite account with a link to your Liberdon profile, the liberdoncom birdsite account will follow you and RT your link. It's a good way for birdsite users to find each other here!
