Code of Conduct

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participants within the Gossip network and community, as well as steps to reporting unacceptable behavior. We are committed to providing 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 community strives to:

Diversity Statement

We encourage everyone to participate and are committed to building a community for all. Although we may not be able to satisfy everyone, we all agree that everyone is equal. 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 eric@midmud.com or @eric on the MUD Coders Guild Slack. All reports will be handled with discretion. In your report please include:

We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately. If an individual engages in unacceptable behavior, a moderator may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a permanent ban from our community without warning.

Thanks

This code of conduct is based on the Open Code of Conduct from the TODOGroup, and the MUD Coders Guild Code of Conduct.

We are thankful for their work and all the communities who have paved the way with codes of conduct.
