Online Community Guidelines
Fostering Authenticity, Respect, and Inclusion
Last Updated: July 2023
Our commitment is to provide a positive, inclusive, and respectful environment across all our social platforms, including Discord and YouTube. We echo the principles of our Code of Conduct in encouraging freedom of speech, diversity, and understanding. Our aim is to foster a community where every individual feels safe to express themselves, learn from others, and contribute towards a harmonious virtual ecosystem.
Authenticity of Engagement
We strongly discourage any engagement that exhibits robotic, repetitive, or non-human behavior. Examples include repeatedly posting identical content, sending large numbers of unsolicited messages, or systematically liking, sharing, or commenting at a pace beyond human capability. Such activities degrade the quality of interactions, and individuals suspected of engaging in them may be removed from our community.
Respect and Inclusion
We are committed to fostering a respectful and inclusive environment. Disrespectful behavior, such as personal attacks, derogatory language, or harassment of any form, is unacceptable. Be mindful of each individual's unique backgrounds and experiences, and always show kindness towards others.
Diversity and Equity
Our platform values diverse perspectives and equal opportunities. We encourage healthy discussions and debates but remember to respect individual opinions even when they differ from your own. No form of discrimination based on nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, age, gender, or physical ability will be tolerated.
While honesty is appreciated, it must always be conveyed professionally. Tough truths should not be withheld but communicated in a manner that fosters understanding and growth. Aim to uplift, not break down.
Zero Tolerance for Harassment
Any form of harassment, including unwelcome sexual attention, threats, stalking, and disruptive behavior, is strictly prohibited. Privacy invasion such as unwanted photography, recording, or tracking/logging online activity without consent is unacceptable.
Adding a New Channel to the Discord Server
We believe in making our community dynamic and relevant to your interests. If you feel a new channel is required on our Discord server to better cater to certain topics or activities, we're open to your suggestions!
To request a new channel, follow these simple steps:
- Compose an email with the subject line "New Channel Request".
- In the body of the email, specify the proposed name for the new channel, its purpose, and how it will benefit the community. Be as detailed as possible to help us understand your vision.
- Send the email to our moderation team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our team will review your request, considering factors such as the channel's potential value, relevance to our community, and appropriateness within our guidelines and Code of Conduct. If approved, we will create the channel and announce it to the community. Remember, your active participation can help shape our community, making it a better place for everyone. Your voice matters!
If you experience or witness behavior that violates these guidelines or our Code of Conduct, we encourage you to report it immediately. You can contact our moderation team via email at email@example.com or reach out to a Discord moderator or admin on our Discord server. Rest assured, all reports are treated with confidentiality and urgency.
Our community is a space for everyone. Your active participation and commitment to these guidelines ensure a positive experience for all members. Be clever, be kind, be authentic.
