Community Rules

Last Updated: March 14, 2024

Welcome to the community (the “Community”) operated by TechYeet LLC (“TechYeet”, “us”, “our” or “we”). The following rules (the “Rules”) govern your access to and use of the Community. Please read the Rules carefully before you access or use the Community.

By using the Community, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by the Rules. If you do not want to agree to the Rules, you must not access or use the Community.

Code of Conduct

Members and leaders of the Community may participate in virtual and in-person events, as well as initiatives further described at https://www.techyeet.org (collectively, the “Activities”). As a member of the Community, you must:

  • Be friendly, considerate, patient, and welcoming. We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities.

  • Be respectful. Not all of us will agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. It’s important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. Members and leaders of the Community should be respectful when dealing with each other as well as with people outside of the Community.

  • When we disagree, try to understand why. Disagreements happen all the time and the TechYeet community is no exception. It is important that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively. Remember that we’re different. The strength of the TechYeet community comes from its varied members and leaders, people from a wide range of backgrounds. Different people have different perspectives on issues. Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesn’t mean that they’re wrong. Focus on helping to resolve issues and learning from mistakes. It is important that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively.

  • When we are unsure, we ask for help. Nobody knows everything, and nobody is expected to be perfect in the TechYeet community. Asking questions avoids many problems down the road, and so questions are encouraged. Those who are asked questions should be responsive and helpful. However, when asking a question, care must be taken to do so in an appropriate forum.

  • Be careful with your words and actions. We are a community of professionals, and we conduct ourselves professionally. Do not insult or put down other members. Harassment and other exclusionary behavior is not acceptable and should be reported. This includes, but is not limited to:

    • Bullying or abusive behavior.

    • Violent threats or language directed against another person.

    • Discriminatory jokes and language.

    • Posting sexually suggestive, explicit or violent material.

    • Posting (or threatening to post) other people's personally identifying information ("doxing").

    • Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.

    • Unwelcome sexual attention.

    • Stalking, including taking non-consensual photography of community members or leaders.

    • Sustained disruptive activity during a community engagement, including written communication.

    • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

    • Repeated harassment of others. In general, if someone asks you to stop, then stop.

    • Deliberately offensive behavior, language, images or other content - even if meant to be humorous (i.e. - "trolling").

  • Limit sales activities. This is a strict non-sales community. Sales posts are only allowed in the marketplace slack channel. Do not directly message other members or leaders with sales pitches either.

  • Always be safe. You agree to comply with all applicable policies and procedures, training, safety rules, and other instructions while participating in Activities.

  • Obey the law. You may not access or use the Community in any way that violates any applicable federal, state, local, or international law or regulation.
