The following is a list of rules you must follow to participate in this instance. The rules are harshly formulated and orient themselves around the mastodon.social CoC, manechat.net Rules and German Law&Legal Code.
In general this instance is Pony and Nerd (as in the #mylittlenerd Channel on manechat.net) themed. Topics such as Ponies, Ponies, Technology, Programming, Science, Ponies and even more Ponies are welcome!
The below rules may sound harsh and we apologize for that, the author is german. In general we will not be harsh when applying the rules, it's okay to make mistakes, forgiveness is better than punishment.
The rules for this instance are mostly the same as on the Manechat My Little Pony Discord Server, an up-to-date version can be found at manechat.net

- NSFW may be permitted if it's marked with a CW/NSFW in the mastodon app, violations will be deleted without warning, NSFW will be handled as it is on the /r/mylittlepony Subreddit
- Offensive topics must be either set to Unlisted, Private or CW/NSFW, violations will be deleted without warning
- Uncurated Bots will be banned. A bot is uncurated if it actively engages with users without prior consent from the user in a uncontrolled fashion and does not include a link or method for opting out of this behaviour for the user, or the bot is posting toots fully independently from one or more sources into the public timeline.
- Spoilers must be marked with CW/NSFW, violations may result in an immediate ban

- In case of severe violations contact an administrator immediately or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
- For Content Takedowns or DMCA-like requests, send an email to email@example.com
- The Federated Timeline may contain non-NSFW but controversial content, federation means we get a lot of traffic and flyby content from other servers. You may flag excessively controversial or any NSFW content in the timeline but keep in mind that other instances may have other rules
- We may unfederate from instances that produce an undue amount of traffic or content that is not suitable for this instance. In minor cases the instance may only receive a media-block but otherwise continue to federate.
