Implementing a Code of Conduct in the community.

This is a transplant from

As a member, whether a developer/mod/admin/user/passer by of this or any place on the internet you should be nice (goes without saying, right?

This is invariably not the case.

I would like to open to discussion the implementation of a Code of Conduct so that all members in this community know what is acceptable as a behaviour when interacting with others in a textual/imagery/video or otherwise expressive via post or other manner possible in this community.

This would be applicable to all, and then implementation would be have to be accepted by forcing a new login to all members signed in and to all new future members.

The definition of members is: All style developers, all admins/owners and active operators, all moderators, all style users.


Possible COC examples

@"Nimi L" here its is please wack a nice tag on this.


  • I think this is already in place.
    Mods already deleted some of the discussions i flagged as spam for example.
    No need for pushing it even further.
  • I think large sites like Github need a Code of Conduct, much like a large corporation needs a HR department.

    I see this forum as more akin to a Mom and Pop shop. We already have "Forum Guidelines" permanently plastered to the top of the page as an Announcement. Do we need more than that? I see my position here, and Pabli's, as being far more like a night janitor rather than of a moderator dictating the rules. We keep the place cleaned up of spam and troll posts for the most part. Once or twice a year someone comes along and stirs things up a bit. It blows over and we move on.

    We made it through Hideheaders tenure here without a Code of Conduct. Those of you who have been here a while know he had a way with words and expressing himself. He was also a valuable source of knowledge, and many, including me, learned a great deal from him.

    If y'all want a corporate type setup here, then go for it. It's overkill in my opinion.

  • I think Ruby has a pretty good (and succinct) code of conduct. The other CoC's that I've seen sound more like a license than a set of guidelines on how to be friendly. Just my 2¢
