Feedback on the IndieWebCamp code-of-conduct.

Open Discussions

Contact Information

  • The CoC doesn't give explicit contact information for victims of abuse and harassment. We should add one (or a few).
    • There's an issue with the first point, the contact information. The contact information is going to differ depending on where in the community the behaviour takes place. Behaviour taking place at an IRL event should really be referred to the organiser of the event or someone they nominate, behaviour on-wiki or on IRC can really only be resolved by someone with administrative/moderator powers in those spaces, while behaviour on, say, a Github issue that's on an associated project that has opted into the CoC would be better handled by the maintainer of that project. —— 06:24, 12 April 2016 (PDT)

Event Specific

  • The CoC is, in some places, very event specific and doesn't speak non-events like the IRC/Slack channel and the GitHub repos.

Political Orientation

  • I propose that we add "political orientation" or something to that effect to the list of things. -- Shane Becker 2013-02-15 10:14 PST
    • This sounds reasonable. Is there a pre-existing phrase used by one of the code-of-conduct-examples that conceptually covers this? Tantek Çelik 12:06, 15 February 2013 (PST)
      • None that I know of. (And I can't believe that this is two years old now?) Shane Becker 2015-03-15 15:20 PST
        • Yup, was waiting for an answer to hopefully re-use a pre-existing phrase rather than making up our own. Since in 2+ years no one has found a pre-existing example, is this solving a non-problem? Anticipated problem? Or Under/unreported? Tantek Çelik 15:45, 15 March 2015 (PDT)
      • Django code of conduct uses "political belief" [1]
        Be welcoming. We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, colour, immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.

    • Possibly relevant: the StrangeLoop conference uninvited Curtis Yarvin ("Mencius Moldbug") because of (odious) political writings [2]. The organizer's rationale for excluding him was that it would be an unwelcome distraction from the technical content of the conference. It's worth considering what we would do...
