Here comes a quick PSA:

Little known vulpine.club (and all glitchsoc instances!) fact: You can automatically expand the CW field on every new toot you make! And here's how to enable that:

1. Click on the "App Settings" box!
2. Click "Compose box", and enable "Always enable the Content Warning field".
3. Profit! It's now always there! (You may have to reload your web-app.)

Foxes. They're all around us, protecting us and guarding us. We rarely see them, but they see us. Everything we do, every day. And they know that we're hiding the good treats.

So, we might as well just give all of our best treats to our guardian friends: foxes.

instance block notification:

We've preemptively blocked gab.com and gab.ai from federating with our instance.

I could write a pithy speech here about why it's important to protect our users from the harassment that's sure to be spewing from that site, but really, I think I'll just be succint:

Fuck off, Nazis.

@everyone: thank you for your assistance in reporting The Spammer. We're clicking “suspend” as fast as we can until we can get a technical solution in place. New accounts currently require approval, so they won’t be spamming from v.c any time soon.

So, last week, word went around that Trans Pride Seattle had drawn the attention of white nationalists, who are organizing a nearby rally at the same time.

In part because of the resulting increase in security-related costs, The Vulpine Club has signed on as a sponsor for Trans Pride Seattle!

If you want to help out, there's a couple ways to do it:

  1. If you'd like to help us recoup the sponsorship cost ($300), please use our terribly clunky and counterintuitive "e-commerce" site to pay via credit card. DM me if you want to send a check/MO. Anything beyond $300 will be donated to Trans Pride Seattle. Note: Payments to OwO Group LLC are not tax-deductible under US law.

  2. If you'd like to send money to Trans Pride Seattle / Gender Justice League directly, you can do so on their donations page.

  3. If you're in the area: be there, be safe, be proud, be loud! Even if you aren't trans, come out and show your support.

Thank you for being part of the #VulpineClub ! :heart_trans:​ -Rey

We accidentally didn't suspend librem.one correctly previously, so now it's actually suspended.

Thank you for continuing to report spambots on sight, foxes and friends! You're helping us keep the whole community safe <3

Instance block announcement:

Effective immediately, we will be defederating with social.librem.one (Purism's Mastodon fork) due to an explicitly stated intent to not enforce a code of conduct compatible with vulpine.club's rules.

We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have concerns, our inboxes are always open.[1]

Thanks for being awesome, foxes. Keep rocking on out there.

moderation update: we no longer federate with pl.pube.tk or daffodil-11.org. The former’s CoC bans “homosexual conduct (figuratively and literally),” i.e. about 80% of all v.c activity. The latter’s admin is mass-following people without regard to , and our CoC does state that “Follow bots will be blocked on sight.”

federation update: now rejecting media from sinblr.com because it doesn’t enforce CWs on NSFW content.

meta: Suspended waifuappreciation.club due to harassment by an instance admin and its general lack of a CoC. (Also, that domain name? Seriously?)
