Resources for the Town of Merveilles.
We chose to align ourselves with that of the solarpunk movement.
A demand for technology and society to re-center around sustainability, longevity, and balance with an emphasis on renewable energy.
A focus on decentralization, community activism, social justice, and civic empowerment.
A recognition that economic, social, and ecological injustices are all deeply interconnected.
We have a Trello Board. This is used to show what improvements or adjustments are being made to the instance. Please take a look, and if you have any suggestions, feel free to reach out to the admins.
This instance is funded by donations from Merveilles members, and a financial report is posted by Somnius each month that shows how much money is spent and received. If you would like to donate to keep the instance running, please feel free to do so on these platforms below. Any extra income over server expenses are used to fund Merveilles projects.
Upon joining the instance, we recommend that you write a first entry using the
#introduction tag, that generally describes who you are. You should also consider pinning this to your profile.
We want to keep the instance small. The aim of the Town is to facilitate a discussion on the various projects created by members of the Merveilles community. So, that is why we are keeping things invite-only for the time being. This is intentional to reduce the overhead on the moderation team and to focus on our existing members more. You may only receive an invite if someone already on the instance recommends you to the moderation team for review.
For the time being, you are not allowed to automatically cross-post from other social networks to our instance. If it's found that you don't respond to cross-posted interactions from external accounts on the instance, you will be considered as lurking and will be removed. Using twitter atlinks, like @email@example.com is also discouraged.
On this instance, we adopt non-speciesist values and keep our local timeline free of animal cruelty. We do not allow pictures of dead animals on our public timeline.
While it is encouraged on the instance to share personal projects, it is discouraged to use the platform as a "brand", or to use your account to do repeated promotion of products. You're welcome to create an alt account on another instance and promote these toots, keep the local timeline free of advertisements.
