Next up: we'd like to add a moderator who's *not* Another Tech Guy. Anyone interested?

The feedback I got on the draft code of conduct was all positive, so it's now official: a2mi.social/about/more

A big advantage of Mastodon is the ability communities have to set and enforce a code of acceptable content. To that end, I've always planned to write one for this site.

As a starting point, what do you think about gist.github.com/cdzombak/f56d6 ? It's basically the same as the CoC on the original & largest Mastodon site (mastodon.social/about/more), plus encouragement to use content tags.

FYI: site will be down for a few minutes later tonight for a software update.

I've seen a few posts about what you need to know, but I finally went and read the official FAQ. It explained the federated timeline in a way I understand better than others. Also, hashtag search is apparently just a filter on your federated timeline.

And on the tech side, we've completed some under-the-hood tuning to keep the a2mi.social server running happily.

a2mi.social/about/more has been updated with some additional information about the site, including some content-related policies affecting how this site interacts with the broader world of Mastodon instances.

Thanks to @Erich and @samfirke for donating recently to keep things up & running here!

There's talk about changing our name from "Ann Arbor" to "Washtenaw County" so as to include our friends in Ypsi, Pittsfield, Dexter, Saline, et al. Any objections?
