suspended gleasonator.dev for being yet another alex gleason(read TERF) instance.

Would recommend doing the same

Unsilenced gulp.cafe!

Compared to when the instance was silenced, there are now a lot more social connections (and less jerkitude) between their users and ours.

moderation announcement:

We've taken on @violet as a moderator to help us handle the report queue and otherwise assist the foxes.

Thank you for volunteering!

PSA: we suspended pawoo due to constant botspam, sorry for the inconvenience

congratulations to our comrades at yiff.life for their one year anniversary <3 keep on rocking it @sky and the rest of the team!

also happy one year anniversary to yiff.life !!! thank you everyone!!!

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.)

hateful instance name, v.c instance block notification 

We've blocked lets.saynoto.lgbt in solidarity with our comrades at yiff.life due to the hate spewing forth from it.

Fuck Nazis. Queer liberation forever.

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.

- with love and :fox:, @tastymochafox

@everyone: thank you for your assistance in reporting The Spammer. We're clicking β€œsuspend” 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.

:trans_heart:​, @mxsparks

New custom emoji:
:girlpower:​ girlpower
:girlpower_white:​ girlpower_white
:girlpower_black:​ girlpower_black
Thanks to @backwardsflow for commissioning them!

:heart_trans:​, :transistor:​

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

- @tastymochafox

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.
