Code Of Conduct

Overview and Purpose

Panvala is an incentivized DAO that funds the open-source Ethereum ecosystem. We’re honored to play a part in enabling more collaboration across the Panvala community and the broader Ethereum community. Together, we all have an exciting opportunity and responsibility to make this a community we can be proud of.

The Panvala Community Forum is intended to be a place for further collaboration, support, and brainstorming. This is a civilized place for connecting with other users, learning new skills, sharing feedback and ideas, and finding the support you need to participate in the Panvala system.

With this Code of Conduct, we hope to help you understand how best to collaborate in the Panvala Community Forum, what you can expect from moderators, and what type of actions or content may result in temporary or permanent suspension from Community participation.

Panvala is a global community with users that bring different perspectives, ideas and experiences to the community. We are committed to making Panvala and the Panvala forum a welcome environment for all different voices and perspectives.

Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in the Panvala Community Forum a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, ability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Standards

Treat the Panvala Community Forum with respect. We are a shared resource — a place to share skills, knowledge, and interests through ongoing conversation.

The following are not hard and fast rules, merely aids to the human judgment of our Community. Use these guidelines to keep this a clean, well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Be respectful and considerate

  • Be trustworthy. Your reputation matters a whole lot in Panvala. Always be honest and don’t knowingly share incorrect information or intentionally mislead other Panvala Community members. If you don’t know the answer to someone’s question but still want to help, you can try helping them research or find resources instead.

  • Be welcoming and open-minded. Other Community members may not have the same experience level or background as you, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have good ideas to contribute. We encourage you to be welcoming to new members.

  • Respect each other. Be civil and professional, and don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech. Don’t harass or grief anyone. Treat each other with dignity and consideration in all interactions.

  • Disagree Respectfully. You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Avoid name-calling, ad hominem attacks, responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content, and knee-jerk contradiction. Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Contribute in a positive and constructive way

  • Improve the discussion. Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later. The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

  • Be clear and stay on topic. Communicating with strangers on the Internet can be difficult. It’s hard to convey or read tone, and sarcasm is frequently misunderstood. Try to use clear language, and think about how it will be received by the other person.

  • Share mindfully. When asking others to give you feedback or collaborate on a project, only share valuable and relevant resources to provide context. Don’t post links that don’t add value to the Topic, and don’t post unsolicited links to your own projects or sites on other user’s threads.

What is not allowed

  • Threats of violence. You may not threaten violence towards others or use the site to organize, promote, or incite acts of real-world violence or terrorism. Think carefully about how your posts might be interpreted by others. If you think that someone else might interpret the content you post as a threat, or as promoting violence or terrorism, don’t post it.

  • Hate speech and discrimination. We do not tolerate speech that attacks a person or group of people on the basis of who they are. This includes but is not limited to age, body size, ability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

  • Bullying and harassment. We do not tolerate bullying or harassment. This means any habitual badgering or intimidation targeted at a specific person or group of people. In general, if your actions are unwanted and you continue to engage in them, there’s a good chance you are headed into bullying or harassment territory.

  • Impersonation. You may not impersonate another person by copying their avatar, posting content under their email address, intentionally using a deceptively similar username or otherwise posing as someone else.

  • Doxxing and invasion of privacy. Don’t post other people’s personal information, such as phone numbers, private email addresses, physical addresses, credit card numbers, Social Security/National Identity numbers, or passwords. Prurient/Sexually explicit content. Basically, don’t post pornography.

  • Spam. Don’t post advertisements, link to spammy websites, or otherwise vandalize the Community. This Community is meant for Panvala users to discuss projects, learn, and share ideas with one another - not for advertising or other spam-like content. Content that we deem spammy will be removed.

  • Copyrighted or illegal content. Only post your own stuff. You are responsible for what you post. If you post something you didn’t create yourself, you must have the right to post it. You may not post illegal content, including content illegal under copyright and trademark laws, links to illegal content, or methods for circumventing the law.

  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting. The Panvala Community Forum is a professional space and should be treated as such. This includes using profanity, hateful language, insults, and inflammatory communication.

Actions we may take in response to a flag or other report of abuse may include, but are not limited to:

  • Asking you to stop the behavior
