Re: [jsmn] JSMN Code of Conduct

+1 we should have opened it up for discussion before posting it.  This was a poor way to start the discussion.  My hope is that people offer up amendments, thoughts, or replacements of any or all of the document.

Do we need it?  Maybe, maybe not, but I've been seeing related conflicts popping up at tech events and conferences a lot lately. I would rather try and be proactive, and make it clear that we expect a basic level of respect and professionalism in the group.

Have there been any specific incidents in jsmn?  Does it make sense to codify common decency in an informal organisation?

+1:  Creating a Code of Conduct is admirable!

-1:  Having a code of conduct with no input from the groups of people actually affected is problematic.   Consider the implications of that choice carefully.

Hi everyone,

There's been a lot of talk in the geek news channels of late about pretty horrible harassment incidents, particularly around female speakers and leaders in the industry.  I think we can all agree that we want JavaScriptMN to be a place where this kind of behavior will not be tolerated.

To help codify this, I drafted a new Code of Conduct for JavaScriptMN with input from James and Jason:


The goal of creating this document is to have a common understanding that harassing activities will not be tolerated in the group.  Further, that we will all, in small or big ways, try and act as agents of positive change in our industry.

I think all of you are already living this, but I wanted to get this out there.  If you have any input on the document, please feel free to either reply on this thread, or to me directly if you prefer.

Thanks!
