I am the lead for the community team, and unfortunately the only active moderator for this community went a bit bonkers and removed a bunch of posts and changed the name and stuff. We are now trying to rebuild this community, and have appointed two new mods Stamets and JonsJava, who will together try to get this community back on track.
If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to put them down in the comments here, and we'll get back to you as soon as we read them.
Thank you for being here (:
The more competition the better (:
This community needs some new mods to keep it clean, so let me know if you are interested in helping out.
You can send me a pm or let me know in this comment section if you are interested. If you are selected, you can join a discord/matrix server and we can keep this community clean together.
If there are any questions, let me know!
We are looking to expand the mod team a bit, so we are looking for some people who would be interested in joining us.
If you are interested, please let us know via a PM or by leaving a comment below. We would also like to know the timezone you life in, and if you have had any previous modding experience.
If you have any questions, you can also leave them in the comments below.
Thank you (:
We are looking for new moderators for this commumnity. Do you want to help to grow this community and keep it clean from spam and inappropriate posts? Then let us know in a comment below.

Hello news community!
We from the admin community want to highlight a rule that is very important for this instance; copying copyrighted work onto this platform without permission is not allowed.
For this community this is most relevant to the articles that are posted here. You are allowed to copy a short summary (like the bot also does for some news sources), and you are allowed to post an archive link. What is NOT allowed is copying the full article in your body post.
We understand it is very convenient to have the full article in the body, but sadly it opens the instance up to legal action, something we can't do much about as a volunteer and donation based platform. We hope you understand.
To be clear, this rule has always been in the instance rules, so nothing is changing on our side, we just hope that this leads to less confusion when we delete a post / ask a post to be altered.
Let us know if you have any thoughts or questions.
Thank you for being such an amazing community!
