- Code of Conduct
- Terms of Service
Below are some guidelines that will help you and everyone in the community contribute to a peaceful and helpful discussion.
Please treat this discussion forum with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.
These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.
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.
One way to improve the discussion is by discovering ones that are already happening. Spend time browsing the topics here before replying or starting your own, and you’ll have a better chance of meeting others who share your interests.
You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:
- Ad hominem attacks
- Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
- Knee-jerk contradiction
Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
The conversations we have here set the tone for every new arrival. Help us influence the future of this community by choosing to engage in discussions that make this forum an interesting place to be — and avoiding those that do not.
Discourse provides tools that enable the community to collectively identify the best (and worst) contributions: bookmarks, likes, flags, replies, edits, and so forth. Use these tools to improve your own experience, and everyone else’s, too.
Let’s leave our community better than we found it.
Moderators have special authority; they are responsible for this forum. But so are you. With your help, moderators can be community facilitators, not just janitors or police.
When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. It encourages the bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy, and wastes everyone’s time. Just flag it. If enough flags accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.
In order to maintain our community, moderators reserve the right to remove any content and any user account for any reason at any time. Moderators do not preview new posts; the moderators and site operators take no responsibility for any content posted by the community.
Nothing sabotages a healthy conversation like rudeness:
- Be civil. Don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech.
- Keep it clean. Don’t post anything obscene or sexually explicit.
- Respect each other. Don’t harass or grief anyone, impersonate people, or expose their private information.
- Respect our forum. Don’t post spam or otherwise vandalize the forum.
These are not concrete terms with precise definitions — avoid even the appearance of any of these things. If you’re unsure, ask yourself how you would feel if your post was featured on the front page of the New York Times.
This is a public forum, and search engines index these discussions. Keep the language, links, and images safe for family and friends.
Make the effort to put things in the right place, so that we can spend more time discussing and less cleaning up. So:
- Don’t start a topic in the wrong category.
- Don’t cross-post the same thing in multiple topics.
- Don’t post no-content replies.
- Don’t divert a topic by changing it midstream.
- Don’t sign your posts — every post has your profile information attached to it.
Rather than posting “+1” or “Agreed”, use the Like button. Rather than taking an existing topic in a radically different direction, use Reply as a Linked Topic.
You may not post anything digital that belongs to someone else without permission. You may not post descriptions of, links to, or methods for stealing someone’s intellectual property (software, video, audio, images), or for breaking any other law.
In order to keep our community clean and clear of spam, marketing, and advertisements you may not post on any of our various platforms advertisements that are unrelated to Strapi including but not limited to:
- SaaS Services
- Licensed products
We do allow users to post open source or other software if it is designed to be used with Strapi, or if you are looking for a job/hiring for a job. We have specific channels and categories for these types of software and services. Discretion and moderation of this rule is subject to the admin, moderator, maintainer, or Strapi employee approvals. If we determine that your advertisement violates this rule it will be deleted. If you would like to get prior approval you may contact any Strapi Employee or Forum moderator who will get back to you within 72 business hours.
This site is operated by your friendly local staff and you, the community. If you have any further questions about how things should work here, open a new topic in the site feedback category and let’s discuss! If there’s a critical or urgent issue that can’t be handled by a meta topic or flag, contact us via the staff page.
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, whether in-person or online, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as community members, contributors, maintainers, moderators, and employees pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
Please treat our community spaces which include but are not limited to our slack channels, discussion forums, repositories, bug reporting tools, and code contribution areas with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.
Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:
- Using welcoming and inclusive language
- Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
- Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
- Focusing on what is best for the community
- Showing empathy towards other community members
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include but are not limited to:
- The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
- Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
- Public or private harassment
- Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
- Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting
Strapi employees, project maintainers, and moderators selected by us are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.
We have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, discussion threads, and any other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor or community member for other behaviors that we deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
We expect all community participants (contributors, moderators and other guests) to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues–online and in-person–as well as in all one-on-one communications pertaining to community affairs.
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the Strapi Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Strapi team will review and investigate all complaints, and will respond in a way that it deems appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.
Project maintainers and moderators who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by Strapi team.
Any community member that is engaging in any of the prohibited or unacceptable behavior will be asked to stop and expected to comply immediately. Failure to do so will result in the following actions, however not limited to:
- Verbal warnings (if applicable)
- Documented Written warnings.
- Temporary kick from our various platforms where possible
- Short-term temporary ban (no less than 30 days)
- Long-term ban (no less than 1 year)
- Permanent ban on all our platforms and subject to contract termination for paid licenses without options to renew
We reserve the right to update, change, or modify this Code of Conduct at any time, without any notice, and by participating on any of our various platforms you agree to this Code of Conduct.
