transparency report n°1

May 2019

Third year of party

In an effort to maintain trust with our users, we decided to publish every month key stats about ACP administration. Here you will find moderation and financial numbers. Those can be discussed with the team using DM or by sending an email to acp@fastmail.fr

1. Moderation - April

2. Financial report - May

a. Incomes

b. Expenses

c. Balance

3. Decisions taken this month

5. Decisions summary

1. Moderation - April

What is that ?

We will summarize here all the moderation actions taken during the previous month (here, April).

A report, in this context, is a report against a toot or a local or foreign user, made by a local or foreign user. This count does not count reports received by email, that will appear separated in another section when it occurs.

When we silence a user, their toots and boosts are hidden from local and federated timelines, but you will still see them in your timeline if you’re following them.

When we suspend a user, everything about them is deleted from ACP and all interactions with and from this user are ignored and hidden.

The same goes for instance silence and instance suspend, but it applies to all the users on this instance.

We received 6 reports. Following them, 3 silence actions, and 2 suspend actions were taken against individual users. None of them were ACP users. We suspended 1 instance.

According to our CoC, moderation actions towards individual users aren’t made publicly available. But our moderation actions towards instances directly impact our users experience and general safety, so we make the list public.

2. Financial report - May

What is that ?

This is how many money we receive from our users and how many money we spend to make the instance running.

We don’t want profit from this instance, so the goal here is to be stable in incomes and expenses so the party can go on and on and on.

Thanks to all the comrades that donate to us, we have a pretty nice financial situation.

When we have more money than we need, we store it in case our server needs an upgrade, we have unexpected expenses, or maybe, we have a cool idea, who knows.

 According to PayPal,

34.84 USD = 30.00 EUR,

1 USD = 0.861 EUR

c. Balance

The balance is positive for May, with 0.00351617 BTC (22.20 EUR) and 0.17 USD left after expenses.

Our domain will expire in october, and we noticed that it is more expensive than other years (approx. 40 EUR). We will use donation surplus to renew it.

3. Decisions taken this month

What is that ?

Here are listed decisions taken by the moderation team, at the time of writing of this report and during the previous month.

They are identifiable by two numbers (x-X), x being the number of the current report and X the number of the decision.

They are listed so comrades that donate can know what their money is used for (see 1-II), so our users can identify recent tech changes, and discuss moderation policies with us.

Don’t hesitate and talk with your favorite mod if you have any objection against anything written in our reports or if you’d like us to do anything really.

5. Decisions summary

What is that ?

This section doesn’t make sense on the first report actually, but it summarizes past and current decisions that still have effects on our finances, users or moderations.

The approach here is the same : anything here you don’t like, you can go talk to your fav mod, or email us (acp@fastmail.fr).
