Community over Code - Code of Conduct

This is the ROUGH-draft of Code of Conduct which applies to the the community centered version of Mastodon, NAME. This DRAFT is directly copied from the MEETING COC. EVERYTHING IN THIS DOCUMENT IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE For those so inclined here are the results from the CoC survey that you can use to make this a cohesive CoC.

Versions of this CoC could be applicable on repo/dev discussions, instance moderator (think default CoC), etc.

The Admin and moderation team reserves the right to revoke any user’s content on or access to any aspect of the community, at any time, for any reason. While we won't remove people for arbitrary reasons if you are disruptive in ways not specifically outlined in the CoC we can and will remove you or your comments. Rules lawyering will not help you bypass the systems in place to protect people.

If you see another member violating these rules please contact an admin/group moderator to handle the issue. Minor violations will be dealt with by warnings while major violations will be dealt with by immediate removal. Minor and major things should be fairly self evident.

Strictly prohibited:

  • Nudity/imagery of sex/kink without a content warning
  • Racism or advocation of racism
  • Sexism or advocation of sexism
  • Ableist language
  • Xenophobic or violent nationalism
  • Sexual depictions of children
  • Holocaust denial or Nazi symbolism
  • Promoting the oppression of any marginalized group based on gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or class.
  • Any conduct intended to stalk, harass, or intimidate other users
  • Continuing to engage in conversation with a user that has specifically requested for said engagement to cease may be considered harassment, regardless of platform-specific privacy tools employed
  • Aggregating, posting, and/or disseminating a person’s demographic, personal, or private data without express permission
  • Inciting users to engage another user in continued interaction or discussion after a user has requested for said engagement with that user to cease and desist may be considered harassment
  • Posting and/or disseminating a person’s posts, including screen captures or any other content without express permission
  • Intentionally posting or disseminating libel, slander, or other disinformation
