This is a spin off thread from the conversations being held on the social boards over the last week or so.
As part of the steps out of those we broadly agree that as a community we should have a code of conduct or set of rules that we expect to hold each other to.
I’m creating this thread as a place for the community to come together and agree that code of conduct. Once in this thread we feel broadly happy with it we’ll hold a boardwide vote aiming for a good consensus in favour to ensure this doesn’t end with a small minority enforcing stuff on the whole boards.
This thread is open for any board member to contribute to in a constructive manner. Please try and stay on topic and assume other posters are behaving in good faith - for example, if you disagree with a suggestion please explain why you feel it would be unhelpful rather than simply saying “it wouldn’t work” or “we tried that”.
If you want to contribute but don’t feel comfortable doing so yourself for any reason, consider asking another user that you trust to do so on your behalf or setting up an anon account to post what you wanted.
I’d encourage any user to sum up stuff when there’s consensus on any topic and I/the other mods can edit the next post to sum up the current consensus amongst the thread.
