Below is a summary of rules you need to follow if you want to have an account on this server of Mastodon:
Sexually explicit or violent media must be marked as sensitive when posting

We're a friendly little Mastodon instance providing a place for PHP developers to discuss topics related to PHP, as well as topics unrelated to PHP. First and foremost, we're about building community, and that doesn't always involve technical discussion, so feel free to go off-topic and have fun.
Code of Conduct
If you believe anyone is in physical danger or doing something that is against the law, please notify appropriate emergency services first by calling the relevant local authorities. If you are unsure what service or agency is appropriate to contact, include this in your report and we will attempt to notify them.
If you believe someone is violating the Code of Conduct, we ask that you follow our reporting guidelines and report it to the CARE team.

This includes, but is not limited to, the following behaviors:
- Continuing to engage in conversation with a user that has specifically requested for said engagement with that user to cease and desist, regardless of platform-specific privacy tools employed

These provisions notwithstanding, the administration of the service reserves the right to revoke any user's access permissions, at any time, for any reason, except as limited by law.
To report harassment, click the three vertical dots (⋮) on a user's profile and select "Report @user." For urgent concerns, you may contact any member of our CARE team or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
