Elekk is a Mastodon instance by gamers, for gamers. Games of any type are welcome here - computer games, console games, tabletop games, etc. - as well as game development of any kind. Whether you make games, play games, or some of both, this is the place for you.

EXCEPT: the ideologies of Gamergate and the alt-right are unconditionally unwelcome here. This is an actively diverse and feminist space, and GG and the alt-right are a rejection of that. Any harassment or posts that represent GG or the alt-right, in the sole judgment of the administration, will be removed and may result in suspension of your account.

Elekk is not hosted in the EU and does not recognize the authority of the EU to govern the internet.
