6/9/2018 15:37:42I'd like a CoC that promotes:
- Use of welcoming and inclusive language.
- Constructive ways to deal with conflict in the community (meetings, polls...).
- Protects vulnerable members and establishes plans to deal with incidents.
- Gives examples of what is unacceptable behavior (i.e Trolling, calling names, doxxing, etc).
- Emphasizes the importance of kindness and empathy.
It's important to write a consistent CoC so members of the community are sure incidents are properly taken care of, while also making explicit diversity is welcomed and celebrated.

6/9/2018 16:40:29There will be roles that are filled at all times by a member of the community. Eg: trans officer, nonbinary officer, people of colour officer, disability officer, visually impaired officer, elders' officer...To give individual communities, and communities within communities, a louder voice.YesNo

6/9/2018 17:39:54We will not act on complaints regarding ‘Reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and ‘cisphobia’ (because these things don’t exist)CoCs can be abused unless they anticipate this incredibly common deliberate misunderstanding of racism, sexism, etc.YesNo

reverse-isms, prioritizing marginalized people's voices over majority people's discomfort, don't act surprised when someone doesn't know something.

https://us.pycon.org/2018/about/code-of-conduct/
Also take a look at the PyCon 2018 Code of Conduct (and its guides for handling a CoC violation, which outline how the report data is handled, and how conflicts of interest are resolved).

https://www.coc-handbook.com/
Although this needs some work to be really inclusive, it shows the process of forming a Code of Conduct committee, deciding how/where to store documentation, taking a report, and following up with a report.
The most important part of a CoC is to have a trained CoC response team for the ForkOffTogether community. Otherwise this is just unenforced words on a screen.

6/9/2018 18:19:28AyoJS forked from NodeJS for reasons of governance and related to CoC. Their CoC crucially includes steps of actions. This came directly from an issue where one member of the Node BOARD was accused of CoC violations and unfair application of the CoC. There is a wealth of work put into handling forks. The project ultimately fizzled - how do you compete against NODE after all. But within that community is a wealth of work put into forking over codes of conduct. there's also a lot, lot to learn about the potential pitfalls of forking and how easy it may be fail at the enterprise. Not to say I think this project will not succeed, but it's important to give this case study in just how easy it is to lose steam.Lots of things are very important to me. I would have trouble describing to you why that is. It seems to just be the way I'm wired.YesNo

6/9/2018 18:22:59 It's important to have an inclusive Code of Conduct
But it's more important that the enforcement team be trained on how to handle a Code of Conduct incident.

It may be worth while looking at Code of Conduct training.

Kat ^ is Node cli and did extensive work on AyoJS. If it were possible to consult with them, their experience is directly relevant here I think. Reading through their feed they recommended the wealljs code of conduct. It talks about what to /do/ when there is a potential violation of code of conduct. while CoCs themselves are excellent deterants, there needs to be an understanding of what to do in case they are violated. That seems to be a strong part of the message from this part of the community after the conflict node experienced. I think part of the reason the fork failed was also that they got a lot of what the group in the schism wanted. Whether that made Node more accessible is hard to tell. However the board is still all employees of major tech firms and their community remains somewhat opaque. Still, what came out of the conflict in that community resulted in a greater understanding of the role of CoCs and how they are put into action. Specifically, how to hold people accountable. Not only community members, but the board itself. What Node lacked and perhaps still lacks in some ways is accountability of the board to the community at large. Without that crucial check, node remains to be driven by the Node Steering Committee and the representatives from major companies on that board. Make accountability transparent. Make the way members are held accountable something that has a mechanism for ANY board member to be held accountable.
Because, who will watch the watchers?NoYes
Honestly this is amazing because the Ayo CoC came in part from LGBTQ.technology. HA.

6/9/2018 19:37:22people accusing someone of sexual assault should be listened to without prejudice about the person they are accusing.
because multiple friends of mine have been upset when a serial rapist joined the forkoff team, but were worried that someone trying to bring it up might get shouted down due to the rapist's social capital.
NoNo

6/9/2018 19:51:39We strive to reduce barriers to access of our organisation, our software and our community, as well as to dismantle any ableist assumptions and practices in our process. We recognize that there is no one solution for universal accessibility, and strive to provide alternatives and choices whenever possible.
it is important that accessibility is considered from the beginning on and centered in development – disabled people have to fight for things that they can particioate in and use way too often even in spaces that consider themselves progressive.

Regardless of outcome, $X (or committee) will respond in private to you as the reporter with an explanation of the actions taken within a time frame $Z days."A CoC is worthless if there is not ways to report, enforcement, and followup.YesNo

6/10/2018 1:12:29the stakeholders of this project pledge to institute and abide by a consistent, transparent and accountable human-centered resolution process with a low bar to entry that allows every stakeholder a voice on decisions to do with structural changes and features of both the project's organization and software protocol.
I think it's crucial to avoid the opaque & developer-focused semi-secrecy of github that has plagued mastodon development. With a CoC element like this my intent is to have feature development, as well as community structures, targeted by & for the needs of the userbase, rather than being treated as a private playground (with incidental public consequences) by unaccountable developers. In general I think it's important to make every part of a CoC clear & precise, so I would love the development of a full CoC to actually detail a version of what this process would look like in practice; e.g, a specific admin account on the platform itself that issued requests for features, &/or that opened threads for consultation on proposed features, digests of these responses then being published & potentially a vote of an elected committee being triggered. Inspired by reflection on the article in the link:

6/10/2018 4:45:28Offer people the kind of support they ask for. If you aren't sure what you're offering will be helpful, ask if that type of thing would be useful.
Unsolicited advice is rude. Unasked-for distraction is invalidating. Some commisseration can border on derailing. Ppl who need support are more likely to get what they need if they ask for it & ppl who want to help will pay a lower emotional cost if they aren't also doing guesswork every single time.
NoYesNo optical illusion type brain/eye tricking still images.
They have the same capacity to trigger photosensitive epilepsy as flashing images or strobes, even though they aren't animated.
NoYes
Structural oppression is trauma. Minorities within minorities can be traumatized in and by other oppressed communities, which means nobody's needs can negate anyone else's. They may be incompatible, but they don't negate each other.
One example: POC are expected to defer to the fragility of white people in every community they're part of, to the extent that they're treated in disability and trauma support communities like they aren't also disabled or traumatized but rather some invading abuser who doesn't know what they're asking for. This is a pattern that destroys the potential of every community where it happens.
NoNo
Assume that everyone has joined in good faith, and if someone hasn't (to evade a block, to gather information for another malicious party, or just to sealion all the time), they should be removed to preserve everyone else's ability to assume good faith.
We can't engage in a better way with each other until we're in a place where that's actually a successful strategy. We can't be honest and humane and not instantly hostile until we are in a place where that's not a terrible idea. But this means we need to be in a place where ppl who show up to needlessly escalate conflict to the point of interpersonal harm actually are penalized for doing so instead of earning themselves more social space with pure aggression. It has to be a losing strategy or the ppl who stop first will be punished for having done so.
NoYes

6/11/2018 22:41:09Contributions to the project should not be disparaged simply because they do not take the form of lines of code.
The culture of software development seems to devalue anything that isn't "LOC++", like building and maintaining documentation. Part of addressing this, I think, is to spell out that denigrating people for contributing more in other ways is Not OK.
NoNo

6/12/2018 18:06:52An anti-harrassment policy that includes a specific definition of harrassment
Most policies have a line against harrassment but the ones that tend to be most effective define what they consider harrassment to be as well - geek feminism’s sample CoC has a good example of this (and a permissive licence)
YesNo

6/12/2018 23:13:36When Something Happens

If you see a Code of Conduct violation, follow these steps:

Let the person know that what they did is not appropriate and ask them to stop and/or edit their message(s).
That person should immediately stop the behavior and correct the issue.
If this doesn’t happen, or if you’re uncomfortable speaking up, contact admins.
As soon as available, an admin will join, identify themselves, and take further action (see below), starting with a warning, then temporary deactivation, then long-term deactivation.

When reporting, please include any relevant details, links, screenshots, context, or other information that may be used to better understand and resolve the situation.

The Admin team will prioritize the well-being and comfort of the recipients of the violation over the comfort of the violator. See some examples below.
They emphasize the action steps and enforcement process of the CoC before anything else, making sure the process is crystal clear.YesNo

Deliberate misgendering, [...] use of "dead" or rejected names, [... or], "outing" of any private aspect of a person's identity without their consent except as necessary to protect vulnerable people from intentional abuse [is forbidden].
I'm trans, and this stuff can be a big issue in some communities, especially when these rules aren't explicitly stated anywhere.
Yes
https://www.freebsd.org/internal/code-of-conduct.html
YesPhysical contact and simulated physical contact (e.g., textual descriptions like "*hug*" or "*backrub*") without consent or after a request to stop [is forbidden].This kinda stuff can get super uncomfortable. While the specific wording of this line seems to anger people, I think there should at least be something to the degree of "if you make someone uncomfortable and they tell you you're making them uncomfortable, don't make them uncomfortable."Yes
