Be sure to follow the rule before you head out.

Rule: You must post before you leave.

MODERATORS
 

==please incorporate the word rule in your post titles==
Here are the things that get you banned:
-saying anything remotely iffy with a lemmygrad or hexbear account
-tankie behaviour
-nazi behaviour
-authoritarian behaviour
-genocide denial
-prejudice of any kind
-anything else that is clearly bad

Things that get your post/comment removed:
-AI generated content
-anything in the banlist
-posts that are so off topic that they don't fit on 196 at all
-moldy memes (old memes, crusty memes, irrelevant memes. The type of things you'd see on your aunt's Facebook page or Elon musk's Twitter account with a laughing emoji as the caption)
-corpoposting

Ban length varies, and is mostly based off of whether or not I think you will change your behavior. I have baned certain people for upwards of 2000 days.

---------EDIT:NSFW RULES---------
NSFW Content is now fully permitted BUT it must be tagged. Any NSFW content that has not been tagged and blurred will be removed. Content warnings should also be added to the title in brackets. Example: [penis] or: [explicit description of sex].
Non-sexualized breasts of any gender are not considered inappropriate and therefore do not need to be blurred/tagged. Yes, even female breasts.

IRL GORE IS NOT PERMITTED UNDER ANY CONDITION.

how tankies are still surprised that fascist apologia gets them banned in an antifascist community is beyond me

[–] [email protected] 69 points 1 year ago (13 children)

Why are they even allowed to federate here

[–] [email protected] 54 points 1 year ago (2 children)

The main dev of lemmy is one of them, that's how.

[–] [email protected] 68 points 1 year ago (2 children)

this instance isn't associated with the devs

Because of the Reddit migration, 196 is coming up in my Lemmy feed a lot, I have no idea what it is (because you haven't made a description).

This could be your chance to gain more community members if you update your description

[–] [email protected] 64 points 1 year ago (4 children)

Well sort of the point of 196 is that you can post almost anything, the only rule is that you have to post each time before leaving. This rule isn't enforced for obvious reasons, unlike the ban against tankies.

Can you please ban me for 5 days so that I know what it looks like on this platform?

[–] [email protected] 66 points 1 year ago (3 children)

I'll ban you for one day because you didn't do anything against the rules

[–] nei7jc 29 points 11 months ago (1 children)

I will upvote literally anything that has "fuck" and "spez" in the same sentence.

[–] WindInTrees 44 points 11 months ago (3 children)

Spez is so hot, I want to fuck him.

[–] BLINDrOBOT 23 points 11 months ago (1 children)

Idk, you're probably too old for him.

Ah yes, some good news today as well

Happy to see this community is starting off on the right foot

[–] [email protected] 27 points 1 year ago

Based, thanks moss

[–] [email protected] 23 points 10 months ago (2 children)

I've got a slight suggested edit

Basically the first item to get banned adding Hexbear to the list with Lemmygrad

I've been seeing a huge influx of tankie takes from hexbear accounts all over (and here) since they federated

Where can i find the banlist?

[–] SuddenDownpour 33 points 1 year ago (4 children)

You have a link near the bottom of the channel's description at the right, which in English it's likely called 'Moderation history' or 'Moderation log'. It isn't only a ban list, but general information on mod activity.
