We're a (lightly?) moderated community; harassment is not tolerated, and doing nothing but self-promotion or advertising is frowned on.

Other than that, we welcome anyone who wants to come join and whatever language you speak! Anyone who creates - writing, drawing, game devs, crafting, you name it - is especially welcome, since we all do that kind of thing already. By a similar token, we are also a queer- and kink-friendly planet.

Special thanks to @Daily@tootplanet.space for doing the Tooting Planet art, and to @catterfly@tootplanet.space for letting me make a background out of their awesome planet art.
