Thanks for the nudge, James.
A code of conduct is one of the things I’m mulling over… but please understand that I don’t want to do anything sudden or rash, especially while I’m just getting started in my new role. Until I have a chance to review and propose a more formal code of conduct for the community forums, my basic code of conduct is “be excellent to each other”, and I will try to call out any behavior that doesn’t meet that standard.
Open source is built on openness and transparency, but that doesn’t mean we have to tolerate attacks, abuse, or intolerant behavior. I would hope that we would all be able to kindly point out things we think are wrong (or could simply be improved) without resorting to personal attacks or being rude simple to garner additional attention.
If anyone in the community finds posts they think cross the line, feel free to flag them for the moderators to review.
