Here you can find our guiding principles and perspectives.
Pornography or explicitly NSFW content is not allowed.
All other content is welcome on Lemdit as set out in our Terms and Conditions. This includes different ideas, views and opinions - we are not an echo chamber and you do not have to agree with anybody.
Please treat others with respect and try to be an adult about it.
You are welcome to start a new community here as long as you do so in good faith. Bad faith examples include:
- Spamming new communities
- Starting new communities just to reserve the name
Communities are free to set their own rules and moderate as they see fit, noting that our Terms and Conditions will always apply.
Defederating from other instances is an absolute last resort and we will only do so under the following circumstances:
- If their content has the potential to get us into legal trouble
- If they are acting as an attack vector towards us
We also want to avoid being blocked and will work with any instance admin to try and prevent that from happening.
As a user, you have the ability to block any content you dislike and we encourage you to do so. Please do not ask us to defederate from anyone unless they meet one of the conditions mentioned above.
I run this server in my free time, using my own resources, out of my own pocket.
At the moment I believe I have sufficient resources to suport a lot of growth and see no reason why I should ever have to shut down the server. I am excited about Lemdit and want to see it grow into something beautiful for many years to come.
However, I also can’t see into the future and there is always the possibility that something unexpected will impact my ability to keep running this instance.
My pledge is to be as transparent as possible with you and do my best to resolve any issue that may arise.
If it can’t be resolved, then I will attempt to provide you with at least 30 days notice of the server shutting down, so that you may have enough time to find another home.

- Added Version history for transparency
31 August 2023
- Removed the section on Rules as it’s covered by the Lemdit Terms and Conditions.
