The Telepedia Community Charter (TCC) is a user-conduct policy which applies to any off-wiki platform, or space, where 'Telepedia' as a group (or Company) has general authority. A non-exhaustive list includes projects such as Discord, Phabricator, or our GitLab and GitHub instances.

Whilst the Community Charter governs behaviour off-wiki, users are reminded that the Terms of Service still applies in these instances, and also governs on-wiki behaviour.

General Conduct

Be nice. We're all part of the same community, so be friendly, be welcoming, and be a nice person overall. Be someone that other people want to be around, not avoid. Together, we work to build a project so be a likeable person.
Be respectful. Disagreement is no excuse for poor manners. We work together to resolve conflict, assume good intentions and do our best to act in an empathic fashion. We don't allow frustration to turn into a personal attack. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one and will surely fail. Always assume good faith and work together to resolve disputes or seek assistance if you can't come to an agreement.
Harassing others is unacceptable. Harassment hurts others and the project. A hostile environment is tense and one no one wants to be in. Depending on the severity of your actions, you may be warned once or immediately disciplined (muted, quieted, banned, etc.) depending on the medium. If you have a problem with another user, please contact a platform moderator first before escalating the issue. Harassment is never the answer.
Ask for help when unsure. Nobody is expected to be perfect in this community. Asking questions early avoids many problems later, so questions are encouraged, though they may be directed to the appropriate forum. Those who are asked should be responsive and helpful, they should never be rude or condescending. Those who hold advanced permissions are expected to ask for help, they aren't perfect either, so they should never be afraid to ask for help.

We all go on tangents sometimes, and casual off-topic discussion is fine. However for all of Telepedia's services, if you are a disruption to actual on-topic discussions, you may be removed. Some platforms allow for off-topic discussions and others don't. If you're having an off-topic discussion on a platform that allows for it, make sure to go to the appropriate spot.

In addition to our Content Policy that covers our website, all forms of spam and vandalism are unacceptable.

Our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy apply to services besides our website, where applicable.
