  • OP wants FOSS BeReal, it’s all there in the title. There is no rule against having a body to the post. I agree that I would be disappointed if showerthoughts was only people’s product ideas.

    If this type of post became commonplace we could make a rule trying to avoid spam. How would you word the rule? “No promotion of products or product concepts” that might work. Rules have side effects so I would want to look back through old posts to see if it would hurt quality posts.

    This post did get two reports. Reports are not super down votes, things need to break rules for me to pull them, I try to be objective. As always I’m open to discussion.

    I did giggle about commenter below that is sometimes old. Silver linings.

  • This is my first time being a mod. For example early on I would just remove any post that got a single report, but obviously that’s not a good strategy.

    There are also other mods including an automod.

    If I’m reading your picture correctly it was only 6 days ago that your post got removed. I’m not even sure if I can undo a mod action but I’ll look into it. Thanks for bringing it up.

    Edit: I am having trouble finding the original context of the comment that got removed, finding out how to reverse it, or finding who removed it. It’s possible it was me but I don’t remember it. I have reached out to other mods for help.

  • Several of your comments/posts are being reported. You can find the code of conduct here: https://mastodon.world/about

    There is nothing shocking in there just basic thing like no name calling. Which I suspect is why this comment was being reported. And is why I took down your other post.

    Text is very poor at communicating a lot of subtleties that you get in other forms of communication. So it’s helpful to expect the best intentions of others and maybe ask clarifying questions.

    If you look through other posts and comments you will find that people tend to be pretty chill, looking for a laugh or to make others laugh, and enjoying curious observations about life. People also get passionate about certain topics but I like how the code of conduct puts it “Criticize ideas, never people.”
