Code of conduct

In a nutshell

Be respectful of other people, respectfully ask people to stop if you are bothered, and if you can't resolve an issue contact an admin. If you are being a problem, it will be apparent and you may be asked to leave.

Respect

inline-block is an intentionally positive community that recognises and celebrates the creativity and collaboration of independent members and the diversity of skills, talents, experiences, cultures, and opinions that they bring to inline-block.

inline-block is an inclusive environment, based on treating all individuals respectfully, regardless of gender (including transgender status), sexual orientation, age, disability, medical conditions, nationality, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), physical appearance, politics, ideology (real world or tech), or software preferences.

We value respectful behavior above individual opinions.

Respectful behavior includes:

Resolve peacefully

We believe peer to peer discussions, feedback, and corrections can help build a stronger, safer, and more welcoming community.

If you see someone behaving disrespectfully, you are encouraged to respectfully discourage them from such behavior. Expect that others in the community wish to help keep the community respectful and welcome your input in doing so.

If you experience disrespectful behavior and feel in any way unable to respond or resolve it respectfully (for any reason), please immediately bring it to the attention of an admin. We want to hear from you about anything that you feel is disrespectful, threatening, or just icky in any way. We will listen and work to resolve the matter.

Apologise for mistakes

Should you catch yourself behaving disrespectfully, or be confronted as such, own up to your words and actions, and apologise accordingly. No one is perfect, and even well-intentioned people make mistakes. What matters is how you handle them, and avoiding repeating them in the future.

Consequences

If the administrators determine that a human is behaving disrespectfully, the administrators may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion and exclusion from the community without warning.

As administrators, we will seek to resolve conflicts peacefully and in a manner that is positive for the community. We can't foresee every situation however, and thus if in the administrators' judgment the best thing to do is to ask a disrespectful individual to leave, we will do so.
