The Tugboat Slack Community strives to be a helpful and inclusive space where folx can learn more about Tugboat, chat about web dev, software engineering, and tech—but mostly, we want to encourage questions and knowledge sharing—and ensure that everyone has a safe space to do so.
This code of conduct isn't an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it’s intended—a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the technical communities in which we participate.
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our Slack community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We invite all those who participate in Slack activities to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.
Be respectful of other people, respectfully ask people to stop if you are bothered, and if you can’t resolve an issue, contact the administrators. If you’re being a problem, you will be removed from the community.
Communities mirror the societies in which they exist and positive action is essential to counteract the many forms of inequality and abuses of power that exist in society.
If you see someone who is making an extra effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encourages all participants to contribute to the fullest extent, please recognize their efforts.
The following behaviors are expected and requested of all community members:
Admins reserve the right to delete excessive self-promotional or commercial posts. Content that has been identified as objectionable, inappropriate, or off-topic will be subject to deletion by Slack admins. Members will receive a warning and risk being blocked from the channel if unacceptable behavior persists.
These decisions are made by Tugboat in its sole discretion.
Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including staff and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If a community member engages in unacceptable behavior, we may take any action deemed appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning.
If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify us as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or pinging a Tugboat team member on Slack.
