London Hackspace is an inclusive community where all our members and visitors should feel welcome. This code applies to everyone's conduct on all public communication channels (such as IRC and mailing lists), as well as at the Hackspace itself.

This code of conduct is in addition to the Rules which cover safety and the ethos of the space.

  1. It is unacceptable to harass or discriminate against others for any reason.
  2. Keep all communication civil and keep swearing to a minimum; if you can't make a comment politely and persuasively, don't make it at all. Your conduct reflects on the image of the Hackspace as seen by outsiders.
  3. Public trolling is never appropriate.
  4. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.

If you ignore these guidelines you will initially be warned or moderated. Subsequent offences may result in you being banned from the mailing list or IRC. Additionally, the trustees may start proceedings under the Grievance Procedure.

If you witness any persistent breaches of this code, or have any other concerns, please contact the trustees at trustees@london.hackspace.org.uk. The trustees are powerless to fix problems they aren't aware of.
