# Code of conduct
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participants within the
Flatisfy community, as well as steps to report unacceptable behavior. We are
committed to provide a welcoming and inspiring community for all and expect
our code of conduct to be honored. Anyone who violates this code of conduct
may be banned from the community.
Our open source community strives to:
- Be friendly and patient.
- Be welcoming: We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people
of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to
members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, colour,
immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex,
sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family
status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.
- Be considerate: Your work will be used by other people, and you in turn will
depend on the work of others. Any decision you take will affect users and
colleagues, and you should take those consequences into account when making
decisions. Remember that were a world-wide community, so you might not be
communicating in someone elses primary language.
- Be respectful: Not all of us will agree all the time, but disagreement is no
excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. We might all experience some
frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into
a personal attack. Its important to remember that a community where people
feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one.
- Be careful in the words that we choose. Be kind to others. Do not insult or
put down other participants. Harassment and other exclusionary behavior
arent acceptable.
- Try to understand why we disagree: Disagreements, both social and technical,
happen all the time. It is important that we resolve disagreements and
differing views constructively. Remember that were different. The strength
of our community comes from its diversity, people from a wide range of
backgrounds. Different people have different perspectives on issues. Being
unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesnt mean that theyre
wrong. Dont forget that it is human to err and blaming each other doesnt
get us anywhere. Instead, focus on helping to resolve issues and learning
from mistakes.
## Definitions
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
- Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual
orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical
appearance, body size, race, age, regional discrimination, political or
religious affiliation
- Unwelcome comments regarding a persons lifestyle choices and practices,
including those related to food, health, parenting, drugs, and employment
- Deliberate misgendering. This includes deadnaming or persistently using a
pronoun that does not correctly reflect a persons gender identity. You must
address people by the name they give you when not addressing them by their
username or handle
- Threats of violence, both physical and psychological
- Incitement of violence towards any individual, including encouraging a
person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm
- Deliberate intimidation
- Stalking or following
- Harassing photography or recording, including logging online activity for
harassment purposes
- Sustained disruption of discussion
- Unwelcome sexual attention, including gratuitous or off-topic sexual images
or behaviour
- Pattern of inappropriate social contact, such as requesting/assuming
inappropriate levels of intimacy with others
- Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease
- Deliberate “outing” of any aspect of a persons identity without their
consent except as necessary to protect others from intentional abuse
- Publication of non-harassing private communication
Our open source community prioritizes marginalized peoples safety over
privileged peoples comfort. We will not 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 “Im not discussing this with you”
- Refusal to explain or debate social justice concepts
- Communicating in a tone you dont find congenial
- Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions
## Diversity Statement
We encourage everyone to participate and are committed to building a community
for all. Although we will fail at times, we seek to treat everyone both as
fairly and equally as possible. Whenever a participant has made a mistake, we
expect them to take responsibility for it. If someone has been harmed or
offended, it is our responsibility to listen carefully and respectfully, and
do our best to right the wrong.
Although this list cannot be exhaustive, we explicitly honor diversity in age,
gender, gender identity or expression, culture, ethnicity, language, national
origin, political beliefs, profession, race, religion, sexual orientation,
socioeconomic status, and technical ability. We will not tolerate
discrimination based on any of the protected characteristics above, including
participants with disabilities.
## Reporting Issues
If you experience or witness unacceptable behavior—or have any other
concerns—please report it by contacting us via
phyks+[name of this project]@phyks dot me. All reports will be handled with
discretion. In your report please include:

are additional witnesses, please include them as well. Your account of what
occurred, and if you believe the incident is ongoing. If there is a publicly
available record (e.g. a mailing list archive or a public IRC logger),
please include a link.
- Any additional information that may be helpful.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims
of abuse.
