Forum guidelines and terms of service, Open Source Design by-laws and code of conduct


(Graham Perrin) #1

https://discourse.opensourcedesign.net/guidelines and https://discourse.opensourcedesign.net/faq are synonymous.

Staff members may set a good example by wearing the badge that is gained through complete, non-rushed reading of the guidelines.

At the foot, I added:

  • Open Source Design by-laws and code of conduct

– simple links. That addition aside, I kept edits to a minimum.

If we deeply (or over-) analyse the generic guidelines e.g. https://meta.discourse.org/guidelines then we might find something in conflict with the code of conduct … however, my experience with the generic lines is that they complement and reinforce the ‘be excellent to each other’ essence of the code.
