Code of Conduct
TableRaven code of conduct tl;dr:
Be respectful of other people, respectfully ask people to stop if you are bothered, and if you can't resolve an issue, contact email@example.com. If you are being a problem, it will be apparent and you'll be asked to leave.
Based on previous excellent work by others, this is a living code of conduct. This code of conduct applies to all TableRaven spaces.
TableRaven is an intentionally positive community that recognizes and celebrates the creativity and collaboration of independent creators (and independence) and the diversity of people, cultures, and opinions that they bring to TableRaven.
TableRaven spaces are an inclusive environment, based on treating all individuals respectfully, regardless of gender identity, 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:
- Be considerate, kind, constructive, and helpful.
- Avoid demeaning, discriminatory, harassing, hateful, or physically threatening behavior, speech, and imagery.
- If you're not sure, ask someone instead of assuming.
TableRaven prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. TableRaven moderators reserve the right not to act on complaints regarding:
- ‘Reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and ‘cisphobia’
- Reasonable communication of boundaries, such as “leave me alone,” “go away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you.”
- Communicating in a ‘tone’ you don’t find congenial
- Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions
(Thanks to XOXO for providing the above paragraph and list on marginalized people’s safety with a CC-BY license).
We believe peer to peer discussions, feedback, 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 a moderator. 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.
Apologize for Mistakes
Should you catch yourself behaving disrespectfully, or be confronted as such, own up to your words and actions, and apologize 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.
If the moderators determine that a participant is behaving disrespectfully, the moderators may take any action they deem appropriate, including, account warnings; account suspension; removal from campaigns; restriction of account features; and account termination.
As moderators, 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 moderators' judgment the best thing to do is to ask a disrespectful individual to leave, we will do so.
Resolving an Issue
If you believe you’re experiencing practices on TableRaven which doesn’t meet the policies below, or if you feel you are being harassed in any way, please immediately contact the moderators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
