#displacedsocial we're making some small backend changes tonight. The site and apps might be unavailable briefly although it's not expected to be a huge impact.
We experienced a brief outage. Everything should be back up and running now. Please report any problems to @staff
This question was asked privately but I believe the answer should be public.
"What are you planning to do about the straight and lesbian porn starting to appear in the federated timeline"
The answer is nothing. We embrace anyone who wants to use the site to view and share legal content. If you don't enjoy the variety of the federated timeline you have the ability to filter keywords or mute specific accounts 🙂
Calling all #android users! Did you know you can save a webpage as a homescreen shortcut? Some of us prefer using this over an app.
We need to temporarily limit the amount of content coming from some of the more active instances. This is just until we get a handle on the volume of federated content we're storing. Yesterday we had 12.6k files, today its 19.3k, a massive increase.
Toots by local users are not impacted by this.
Our Patreon page is now available! Support #Displacedsocial for as little as $1 or step up to help offset one of our recurring costs. Community support is what will drive new features and ensure we can offer a secure, stable site for months to come.
Some more context on the moderation post. To help prevent content involving minors we've started using facial analysis to estimate the age of anyone in images. This is done outside of the web servers and the resulting data is not publicly accessible. Video analysis will be coming in Jan.
We store content from users outside of our own community (via federation) so it's important we take all reasonable measures to moderate appropriately.
This is just one of moderation processes we plan to use.
Launching a @welcome bot soon, you might receive a DM from it.
What is Displaced.social?
It's a privately operated instance of Mastodon.
What is Mastodon? https://youtu.be/IPSbNdBmWKE
1. If you try to upload greater than 50mb the error will say "The file must be less than 8mb". This is because of the default Mastodon 8mb limit.
2. Videos may not be pulled to other Mastodon instances because our size limit is much larger than theirs.
Best practise is to always save video in a reasonable format and size. The smaller the file the faster and less expensive it is to process.

We're trying to set ourselves apart by offering a safe, open space focused on those in the NSFW LGBT+ community.
You may be asked by @staff to provide identification if there is reasonable doubt of your age. We do this for the protection of the community.
