All participants in the Livecode.NYC community, including the mailing list, discord server, meetups, performances, and workshops are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code online and in person.
Livecode.NYC is dedicated to providing harassment-free meetup, mailing list, discord and performance experiences for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form. Degrading sexual language and imagery is not appropriate in any Livecode.NYC context, including emails to the list, discord, performances, workshops, and the meetups. Members violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the community at the discretion of the organisers.
Be kind to others
Productive communication requires effort. Think about how your words will be interpreted.
Remember that sometimes it is best to refrain entirely from commenting
Do not insult or put down other community members
Be respectful of people’s boundaries and space
We do not tolerate harassment based on race, gender, religion, age, color, national origin, physical appearance, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
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 long-time member or a newcomer, we care about making this community a safe place for you and we’ve got your back.
The organizers enforce this code of conduct and decide what is and is not a violation. You should contact them if you feel a community member is behaving in a way that violates anything mentioned in this document.
Shows are organized by different people. Check the show flyer or web page for the information on the Livecode.NYC and venue organizers.
In addition, Livecode.NYC members are expected to follow the Social Rules of Recurse Center (opens new window). From their document:
The social rules are lightweight. You should not be afraid of breaking a social rule. These are things that everyone does, and breaking one doesn’t make you a bad person. If someone says, "hey, you just feigned surprise," or "that’s subtly sexist," don’t worry. Just apologize, reflect for a second, and move on.
This Code of Conduct can be changed if the community decides to.
This version of the Code of Conduct was drafted by Jessica Garson, May Cheung, and Ramsey Nassser.
