INSTANCE INFO THREAD
red room was established in september 2018 as a single-user instance for my own purposes. eventually, it grew to host a small community of friends and peers, many of whom lean toward creative and artistic endeavors.
registration is approval-based, and invites are only given out on a limited basis.
the instance is currently staffed by:
the name "red room" derives from both the infamous space within the black lodge of Twin Peaks , as well as an organization that features heavily in my own comic, An Ember Turned Flame
the instance does not maintain an official theme, and users don't have to be fans of or even know about either of the inspirations for the name
(the L in .ml is silent, i just didn't want to pay $20/yr to register a .me domain)
as red room is run by 3 queer leftists, two of which are mixed-race PoCs, our instance tends to have a zero-tolerance policy towards racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, queerphobia, patriarchal bullshit, "free speech" & other alt-right/fascist nonsense, abusers, gab forks, & those who post sensitive content without CW.
these things are not allowed on our instance, and we readily block instances that are lenient toward these things.
we have a discord channel on my personal server. the invite link is available to users upon request
there's no obligation to contribute money to the instance. i fully fund the hosting out of pocket and am happy to do so.
if someone does want to pitch in a little bit toward the costs of maintaining the instance, that can be done via my ko-fi:
R E D R O O M is a small, private instance geared toward artists and creatives, run by a queer PoC.
Better red than dead.
