    Content Management



    The Mastodon software implements a feature called Content Warnings (or CWs for short) that can be used to set a message in front of content and hide the rest behind the "Show More" button. If a user does not wish to view the content described in the message simply ignore the "Show More" button.
    Content that is not properly hidden behind a suitable CW are subject to removal by the moderation team. Content that originates from outside the Puppo Space instance will be silenced if content does not follow these guidelines. Users can still follow users and receive toots from silenced instances.

    Suspended Instances



    Instances that go against the mission of this instance, fail to properly moderate content, promote hateful ideology, and generally cause a nuisance on the federation as reported by other Masto-Admins are subject to having their instance suspended from federating with Puppo Space.
