RustBridge Code of Conduct
- We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of level of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, native language, age, religion, nationality, operating system choice, or other similar characteristic.
- Please avoid using overtly sexual aliases or other nicknames that might detract from a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all.
- Please be kind and courteous. There’s no need to be mean or rude.
- Respect that people have differences of opinion and that every design or implementation choice carries a trade-off and numerous costs. There is seldom a right answer.
- Please keep unstructured critique to a minimum.
- We will exclude you from interaction if you insult, demean or harass anyone. That is not welcome behavior. We interpret the term “harassment” as including the definition in the Citizen Code of Conduct; if you have any lack of clarity about what might be included in that concept, please read their definition. In particular, we don’t tolerate behavior that excludes people in socially marginalized groups.
- Private harassment is also unacceptable. No matter who you are, if you feel you have been or are being harassed or made uncomfortable by a community member, please contact one of the organizers immediately. Whether you’re a regular contributor or a newcomer, we care about making this community a safe place for you and we’ve got your back.
- Likewise any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other attention-stealing behavior is not welcome.
- Please do not ask anyone on a date.
- If there is too little space at an event, you are free to replicate the event, such that more opportunities may be available.
- All curricula and organizing materials are and will always be source-available and free.
These are the policies for upholding our community’s standards of conduct. If you feel that a thread needs moderation, please contact the RustBridge team.
- Remarks that violate the RustBridge standards of conduct, including hateful, hurtful, oppressive, or exclusionary remarks, are not allowed. (Cursing is allowed, but never targeting another user, and never in a hateful manner.)
- Remarks that organizers find inappropriate, whether listed in the code of conduct or not, are also not allowed.
- Organizers will first respond to such remarks with a warning.
- If the warning is unheeded, the user will be suspended from the event.
- If the user comes back and continues to make trouble, local authorities may be called and a permanent, organization-wide ban will be put into effect.
- Organizers may choose at their discretion to un-ban the user if it was a first offense and they offer the offended party a genuine apology.
In the RustBridge community we strive to go the extra step to look out for each other. Don’t just aim to be technically unimpeachable, try to be your best self. In particular, avoid flirting with offensive or sensitive issues, particularly if they’re off-topic; this all too often leads to unnecessary fights, hurt feelings, and damaged trust; worse, it can drive people away from the community entirely.
And if someone takes issue with something you said or did, resist the urge to be defensive. Just stop doing what it was they complained about and apologize. Even if you feel you were misinterpreted or unfairly accused, chances are good there was something you could’ve communicated better — remember that it’s your responsibility to make your fellow Rustaceans comfortable. Everyone wants to get along and we are all here first and foremost because we want to talk about and learn cool technology. You will find that people will be eager to assume good intent and forgive as long as you earn their trust.
The enforcement policies listed above apply to all official RustBridge events and venues; including Discord channels (https://discord.gg/rust-lang), and GitHub repositories under rustbridge and rust-lang.
