  1. # Code of Conduct
  2. ## Our Pledge
  3. In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors
  4. and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community
  5. a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability,
  6. ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal
  7. appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
  8. ## Our Standards
  9. * Please avoid using overtly sexual nicknames or other nicknames that might
  10. detract from a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all.
  11. * Please be kind and courteous. There's no need to be mean or rude.
  12. * Respect that people have differences of opinion and that every design or
  13. implementation choice carries a trade-off and numerous costs. There is seldom
  14. a right answer.
  15. * Please keep unstructured critique to a minimum. If you have solid ideas you
  16. want to experiment with, make a fork and see how it works.
  17. * We will exclude you from interaction if you insult, demean or harass anyone.
  18. That is not welcome behavior. We interpret the term "harassment" as including
  19. the definition in the [Citizen Code of Conduct](http://citizencodeofconduct.org/).
  20. If you have any lack of clarity about what might be included in that concept,
  21. please read their definition. In particular, we don't tolerate behavior that
  22. excludes people in socially marginalized groups.
  23. * Private harassment is also unacceptable. No matter who you are, if you feel
  24. you have been or are being harassed or made uncomfortable by a community
  25. member, please contact one of the channel ops or any of the TC members
  26. immediately with a capture (log, photo, email) of the harassment if possible.
  27. Whether you're a regular contributor or a newcomer, we care about making this
  28. community a safe place for you and we've got your back.
  29. * Likewise any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other attention-stealing
  30. behavior is not welcome.
  31. * Avoid the use of personal pronouns in code comments or documentation. There
  32. is no need to address persons when explaining code (e.g. "When the developer")
  33. Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:
  34. * Using welcoming and inclusive language
  35. * Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  36. * Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  37. * Focusing on what is best for the community
  38. * Showing empathy towards other community members
  39. Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
  40. * The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  41. * Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  42. * Public or private harassment
  43. * Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic address,
  44. without explicit permission
  45. * Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting
  46. ## Our Responsibilities
  47. Project maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable
  48. behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in
  49. response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.
  50. Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject
  51. comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not
  52. aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor
  53. for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
  54. ## Moderation
  55. Remarks that violate the standards of conduct, including hateful, hurtful, oppressive,
  56. or exclusionary remarks, are not allowed. (Cursing is allowed, but never targeting
  57. another user, and never in a hateful manner.) Remarks that moderators find
  58. inappropriate, whether listed in the code of conduct or not, are also not allowed.
  59. Moderators will first respond to such remarks with a warning. If the warning is
  60. unheeded, the user will be “kicked,” i.e., kicked out of the communication channel
  61. to cool off. If the user comes back and continues to make trouble, they will be
  62. banned, i.e., indefinitely excluded. Moderators may choose at their discretion
  63. to un-ban the user if it was a first offense and they offer the offended party a
  64. genuine apology. If a moderator bans someone and you think it was unjustified,
  65. please take it up with that moderator, or with a different moderator, in private.
  66. Complaints about bans in-channel are not allowed. Moderators are held to a higher
  67. standard than other community members. If a moderator creates an inappropriate
  68. situation, they should expect less leeway than others.
  69. And if someone takes issue with something you said or did, resist the urge to be
  70. defensive. Just stop doing what it was they complained about and apologize. Even
  71. if you feel you were misinterpreted or unfairly accused, chances are good there
  72. was something you could’ve communicated better — remember that it’s your
  73. responsibility to make your fellow contributers comfortable. Everyone wants to
  74. get along and we are all here first and foremost because we want to talk about
  75. cool technology. You will find that people will be eager to assume good intent
  76. and forgive as long as you earn their trust.
  77. ### Enforcement
  78. Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported
  79. by contacting the project team at committee@redbrick.dcu.ie. The project team
  80. will review and investigate all complaints, and will respond in a way that it
  81. deems appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain
  82. confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of
  83. specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.
  84. Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good
  85. faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other
  86. members of the project's leadership.
  87. ## Scope
  88. This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces
  89. when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of
  90. representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail
  91. address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed
  92. representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be
  93. further defined and clarified by project maintainers.
  94. ## Attribution
