Hello

Let's get your account set up.

Account
Your name is displayed with your avatar across the site. This doesn't need to be your name - it's your account's name.
Your username is used to identify your account. For potential future security reasons it can't be changed.
Your email address is private and is only used for resetting your password. You can create an additional email address, and you don't have to prove it's your email address, but if you don't have an email address attached to your account, or you don't have access to emails sent to it, you won't be able to recover your account if you forget your password.
Security

Once your account has been created, you can set up two factor authentication as well.

Your password is salted and hashed using an algorithm called bcrypt. This makes brute forcing your password impracticle (and near impossible to do quickly). Your password should be long and should never be shared (with other people or across sites).
Privacy policy
  • We require your IP address to allow you to access the site. That's just how the internet works. Your IP address is not logged anywhere by default, but you can ask us to log the IP addresses used to login to your account.
  • If you want to create an account, you must provide a username, name and password.
    • Your password is hashed using an algorithm called bcrypt, meaning no one can read it, and is only used for authentication. When you log in, we'll check if it appears on Pwned Passwords. Have I Been Pwned cannot see your password.
    • Your username cannot be changed.
    • Your username and name are public. They do not need to identify you.
    • You can also provide an email address. This is optional, but if you don't provide an email address, you won't be able to reset your password.
  • SpeechMore is a federated platform. This means that some of the content on this sites comes from other platforms, such as Mastodon, and that content on this site can appear on other platforms.
    • Only public data is federated. Currently all posts are public. We will introduce an access control system soon.
    • Anyone who has access to the database of any platform your content has federated to can see it, even if it is supposed to be private. (This doesn't matter at the moment as it is not currently possible to select specific permissions on content.)
    • Deleting data will only remove it from this site. We cannot guarentee that other platforms that have previously retrived a copy of your data will delete it.
  • You may post personal information on the site, however we will never ask for your personal information.
  • We do not share any data you upload to the site (unless required to by law enforcement agencies, which we will try to provide with as least data as possible). Any information you make public can of course be accessed by others including bots.
  • Data you upload to the site is proxied through Cloudflare to servers operated by Hostinger UK and Harry Carrigan. In the future we may host the site using other services.
  • This site is not intended for children (usually defined as anyone under the age of 13 for this purpose), but as we do not collect this information we cannot verify all our users are at or over the age of 13.
