OC Good Life Code of Conduct

user 5267159
Corona del Mar, CA
OC Good life is a social group, and as a community-building organization we realize that meeting new friends with like interests is one of the main reasons you've decided to join. Most, I would even say over 99% of our members are friendly, light hearted, and a joy to have at each and every event we can think of. However, respect for other people and respect for others property and personal space must never be taken lightly.

As a precaution, we've developed this Code of Conduct to address some of the behaviors that will not be tolerated at our events, with people you meet at our events, and on the Web sites associated with OCGL (including but not limited to and Facebook).

OCGL takes the well-being of our members very seriously. By using the OCGL Web sites (whether or not you choose to become a member) and attending any events organized by OCGL, you agree to accept this Code of Conduct. In other words, this is an agreement between you and OCGL just like the Meetup Terms of Service (­. To the extent there is any inconsistency between the Terms of Service and this Code of Conduct, the Terms of Service shall take precedence.

You agree that we may modify terms of this agreement from time to time at our sole discretion, which we will do by updating this document. If you do not agree with the terms below, you should either refrain from joining our group or leave the group if you are already a member.

Remember we're a community-building group, not a singles group, so we ask that members only contact people they've already met at an event or already know in real life. That includes e-mails, greetings on the Web site, and the like. Once you've made a mutual connection with someone at an event, take it from there! The exceptions to this would be communication from OCGL organizers or member-to-member communication about logistics around an event.

At events, we ask that members respect each other and respect other people's boundaries. The same goes for emails and the message boards. Inappropriate, disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated! As moderators of the message boards, we can and will delete any posts that we deem inappropriate, disrespectful, offensive or damaging to the community at large. For example, we have a policy that meetup events that are in any way sexual in nature, even if educational, should either feature a qualified professional, or be posted by an organizer, not just a member who is not an organizer. Our organizers reserve the right to delete any event that doesn't meet the goals and spirit of our meetup group.

While the Web properties are "public", that doesn't mean they are a "free zone". Please let the organizer or an assistant organizer know as soon as any member acts inappropriately in any way!

At all times:

· You will show courtesy and good will towards other members and users online and offline.

· You agree to have a valid photograph of yourself as part of your profile, so that you can be identified at events.

· You will not post content that is offensive to our community, such as photos, videos, messages, or events that promote racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual.

· You will not harass or advocate harassment of another person, such as by sending inappropriate messages or posting inappropriate comments.

· You will not distribute or disseminate inappropriate, unauthorized or unsolicited advertising or promotional offers including, but not limited to, spam, contests, sweepstakes, barter, junk mail, chain letters, and pyramid schemes.

· You will not invade privacy by attempting to collect, store, or publish private or personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to, password, account information, email, credit card number, address, or other contact information.

· You will not use the site to obtain personally identifiable information, or to solicit, sell, or promote to any member inappropriately.

· You will not impersonate another member, celebrity, or otherwise falsely represent yourself.

· You will not copy or reuse other members' content, such as their photos or videos, without their permission.

· You will not create "trolling" posts (deliberately posting false or provocative information in order to elicit responses from people who would not respond if they knew the motivation behind the post).

· You risk being removed from the group by doing anything illegal.

In no way do we not want you to have fun, so keep this in mind, be respectful and positive, and we hope you have a wonderful time in our group!

I find it perplexing why some members (not necessarily in OCGL) choose to use non-descript photos that don't identify who they are. This is not "myspace" or some junior half-a** site, I wish people would stop using photos of their pets, places, or useless highly pixelated photos.

Yes, thank you for the Code of Conduct. I wonder how many people will actually read it. I've skipped out of events (and have even left groups) because for some reason people insist on treating meetups and groups as singles groups to serve their personal needs.

I'm new to this meetup and my first event was the St. Regis. It's good to know that you have a Code of Conduct and enforce it. It's also good that you remind people of it. Maybe more would read it if it were inserted in the email rather than a link they have to click on? I was surprised by some of the photo's I saw post, but happy to see they were later removed. Stronger filters are definitely needed. Thank you.

That issue sounds like something for organizer action, not for a message board posting. Although that does not fit any specific issue in the code of conduct, feel free to message me with whatever details including links are appropriate and it will be dealt with like all other issues are by organizer action if necessary. It sounds as though, if this is on an outside site, you may need to contact that other site for action as well.

For better or worse, anything posted on a public meetup group, like ours, are available for anyone to see. Although legally a photograph belongs to the photographer, if there is a photograph on our group website you want taken down, any organizer can assist you with that.
