Regarding arms posting – I do cringe when an assault rifle photo is posted openly, I think we should revisit the Content Warning requirements.
As a sensitivity gesture to those who are victimized by violence, crime and warfare. The topic could still be acceptable, but with a CW and up to users discretion to open it or not.
One of the Very Distinctive features of Fediverse instances, compared to Twitter for example.
We don’t need to go overboard, but while I am interested in arms, and had them in the past, I have so far avoided posting images that could lead to finger pointing and reputational damage to Qoto in the Fediverse.
Posting this Top Level, for Exposure and discussion.
EDIT : Getting a Server 500 Error – failure to upload media, both in Masto Web and Pinafore client.
** Now posted here to allow a permanent record and including imagery which the mastodon server is currently NOT accepting as mentioned.
