Appealing moderation decisions against your account without having to go directly over e-mail will be possible soon #mastodev

@Gargron Will appeals be opt-in per server? (Can admin turn off appeals?)

@annika If you are concerned about abuse, only one appeal can be submitted, limited by characters, and only within 20 days of the decision. Since you got a notification about the initial report in the first place, this is a matter of potentially just one more notification.

Since people can complain to you through e-mail (and it is not advised to not provide a contact e-mail for legal reasons) I think it is in any case preferable to have that in the system instead of e-mail.

@Gargron @annika

Make appeals and federation opt in. It does not hurt you to do this.

Server runners don't another damn tax on their time from all the entitled nazis.

@emma @annika Over a long enough time and with enough people you are guaranteed to make moderation mistakes (Unless you just run a server for your friends in which case this will never be relevant to you). This is about giving people hurt by those mistakes a chance for them to be corrected. It's also about making your life easier so you don't have to wade through e-mails.


@Gargron @annika

Given that 99.999% of these appeals are in bad faith, it's not worth it.

@emma @Gargron I mod for a mid-sized Twitch stream and they're almost always a vector for additional harassment
