Administrators

@annika is the primary instance administrator, and is responsible for monitoring, upgrades, and maintenance. The Andys and a handful of past operators also retain admin privileges.

The XOXO Code of Conduct is enforced for all server members. Violations can be reported to any admin through any means you feel comfortable with.
