How we treat each other matters
We welcome the contributions of people of all genders, cultures, races, colours, ages, sizes, sexualities, classes, and abilities.
We will work pro-actively to make involvement in the eConvenor development community a welcoming, positive experience for everyone.
To that end, there are some basic conditions of participation in the eConvenor project:
- Make an effort to be polite and friendly to other members of our community.
- Be aware that tech groups can be intimidating and unwelcoming for people who aren't straight cisgender men, and go out of your way to make sure our community isn't like that.
- Treat other members of the community with patience and respect, regardless of their level of technical ability. Everyone was a beginner once.
- Don't raise your voice in frustration or anger. Remove yourself — take a break — if you can't control your reaction to a piece of work that's bothering you.
- Don't talk over anyone. If you must interrupt someone for some reason, that's okay, but do it politely and don't make a habit of it.
- Say something if you witness inappropriate conduct within our community. Either speak up at the time, or let Keira and Sky know so that they can deal with it.
- If someone asks you to change your behaviour, or points out a problem with it, take it on board. Listen first, then think, then respond — avoid reacting without thinking.
