Terms of Service

Like a majority of social web services, mellified.men is a benevolent dictatorship. We try to be fair and generous in dealing with both bad behavior and honest mistakes, but in the end administrative decisions are final.

This service is provided as-is and makes no guarantees of uptime or availability.


Privacy Policy

The administrator/owner of this instance will not use user data on this server for any purpose except to provide the Mastodon service. This includes:

  • Transmitting your content to your followers, who may be on this instance, other Mastodon servers, or servers running other Fediverse-compatible software.
  • Backing up user data for recovery from system failures.
  • Handling abuse reports.
  • Investigating server bugs.

No user data from this instance or the wider network will ever be sold or otherwise exploited by the administrator/owner of mellified.men for any purpose.


Privacy Advisory

Public and unlisted posts on this server are visible to the public, and could be searched, archived, or otherwise made available by third parties via the wider internet. The administrator of this server cannot prevent this.

Followers-only posts are delivered only to your followers and cannot be boosted. However, if one of your followers is untrustworthy or their home server is using buggy software, they could (accidentally or maliciously) expose your followers-only posts. We recommend all users monitor their followers and remove anyone they don't want to see their followers-only posts. If you are posting sensitive followers-only content, it is best to lock your account so you can manually approve all followers.


Instance Blacklisting Policy

mellified.men may prevent any remote instance that significantly deviates from our Code of Conduct from posting to our instance's public timeline. This is called "silencing" and does not prevent anyone on mellified.men from following users from that server, or vice versa.

If any instance becomes a source of harassment or annoyance, consistently posts content that is illegal, and/or refuses to moderate bad behavior, we reserve the right to suspend its ability to federate with us completely.

Administrative decisions in this area are not taken lightly, and are final.


Custom Emoji Licensing

This instance makes use of the following third party emoji sets:

We have other emoji copied from remote servers, for which the license is unknown. If you see us using an emoji you created and would like it acknowledged here, please contact the administrator via direct message with the emoji shortcode and link to the creator/license terms.
