About This Server

Ottawa.place is a Mastodon server running the Hometown fork, which is a version of Mastodon with an extra focus on local communities. It is currently administered by @leigh and @andrew. Follow @OttawaPlaceAdmin if you're interested in hearing about future opportunities to chip in and volunteer as the instance grows.

The greater Ottawa region exists on the traditional unceeded territory of the Kanienʼkehá꞉ka (Mohawk), Omàmìwininìwag (Algonquin), and Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ peoples. We are grateful to have the opportunity to provide this service to people present in this territory.

Nous voulons operer un serveur bilingue; les traductions sont en cours. Votre patience est appréciée à cet égard.

Federation philosophy

We defederate from instances that engage in harassment or encourage hate speech.

Handling harassment

If you are being harassed, please report the user using the "…" button and then "Report." For urgent concerns, please DM a moderator.

If you engage in harassing behavior, the moderator may take any action they deem appropriate, such as a warning or an expulsion.

The above rules may change at any time, and you may be banned at any time based on the moderators' judgment.

File Limits

Photos have a maximum file size of 10MB and videos have a maximum file size of 40MB.

Data Location

Ottawa.place user data is stored within Canada, in a server in OVH's Montreal datacentre, along with Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Canada region. Media uploads are stored on AWS's global CDN. Encrypted daily database backups are stored in AWS S3. This may change from time to time but we will do our best to 1) keep things in Canada as much as possible and 2) keep users posted if we need to make big changes to how we store things.

Instance Continuity

If we ever decide to cease running this instance, in accordance with the Mastodon Server Covenant, we commit to a 3-month advance notice before turning off any infrastructure, to allow users to export their content and migrate to a new server.

Moderated servers

Hometown generally allows you to view content from and interact with users from any other server in the fediverse. These are the exceptions that have been made on this particular server.

Filtered media

Media files from these servers will not be processed or stored, and no thumbnails will be displayed, requiring manual click-through to the original file:
