📑 Highlights and Annotations

draft of the proposed OpenETC code of conduct ❧

When making a CoC, it’s always nice to spend some time researching others.

Here’s a copy of the IndieWeb’s CoC, which I’ve liked. They also documented a list of other CoC’s for other communities that might be worth looking at as well. Most of them have licenses for ease of cutting/pasting for reuse.

I don’t see a license on this draft, but it would be nice if you provided a CC0 license for it.

Temporary access ❧

Large portions of the material below this read more like a Terms of Service than a Code of Conduct. It might be more useful to split these into two pages to better delineate the two ideas.

Guidelines ❧

These are some generally useful guidelines, but it would be nice to have a section on where to go or who to contact for help and conflict resolution. What should someone who notices a violation do? Where should they turn for help?

use the services of the OpenETC ❧

What would constitute a full list of the services of OpenETC? Is it just this website, or does it include email lists, chat rooms, a Slack room, other services? The CoC should apply to all these areas listed.
