Code of Conduct

tl;dr Be human. Be kind. Be respectful. Be supportive. Be inclusive. Be open-minded. Be helpful.

In Rosieland we exist to support and nurture the present and future community building industry. Our goal is to do this through respect, conversations, knowledge sharing and collaboration.

If you see or experience something you donโ€™t like, respectfully ask for it to stop. If you need support, Rosieland will be happy to help.

In Rosieland we reserve the right to suspend or permanently ban access to our online services and events for behaviour that does not align with our community principles outlined in this code of conduct.

This code of conduct applies to all Rosieland spaces both online and off, including but not limited to our events, online forum, and our Discord.

We create inclusive, friendly, safe and supportive environments for all, based on treating all individuals as good human beings. ย This is regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, medical conditions, nationality, ethnicity, religion, physical and personal appearance, politics, ideology, software preferences, level of experience, nationality or other similar characteristics.

We canโ€™t always be aware of everything going on, but you can expect that we will do our utmost to address a situation that our staff or community members feel is inappropriate. We encourage anyone to come forward if they need support.

Be Human.

  • Understand that everyone is on their own journey which you may not fully understand or be aware of.
  • Any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting, or other attention-stealing behaviour is simply not welcome.
  • Apologise for mistakes - no one is perfect, we can all make mistakes.

Be Kind.

  • Please be kind and courteous. There's no need to be mean or rude.
  • This includes private harassment. No matter who you are, if you feel you have been or are being harassed or made uncomfortable by a community member.
  • Seek to become aware of peopleโ€™s context and culture before jumping to conclusions.
  • Resolve peacefully. We believe peer to peer discussions, feedback, corrections can help build a stronger, safer, and more welcoming community.

Be respectful

We believe in valuing respect over opinions.

What does respectful behaviour include?

  • Being considerate, kind, constructive, and helpful.
  • Avoiding negative, demeaning, discriminatory, harassing, hateful, or physically threatening behaviour, speech, and imagery.
  • Differences of opinion will always exist, deal with it respectfully.
  • If you're not sure, ask someone instead of assuming.

Be supportive and inclusive

  • Consider your language and how this may impact or exclude people in marginalised groups.
  • Avoid using overtly sexual nicknames or other nicknames that might detract from a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all.
  • Help others in trouble - we encourage you to reach out to a staff member if you see someone being treated disrespectfully
  • Consider how you can be helpful and supportive to the community around you.
  • Seek to support and converse with those who are new to the community.

Be open-minded

  • Respect that people have differences of opinion and that every design or implementation choice carries a trade-off and numerous costs. There is seldom a single right answer.
