Squad Europe Code of Conduct
The purpose of our Community Code of Conduct is to ensure that all participants in the Squad Europe community have the best possible experience. We are all here to help each other play, grow our skillsets and have a good time!
The Squad Europe Community Code of Conduct covers our behavior as members of the Squad Europe community, in any form, In-Game, discord, Teamspeak, private correspondence, or public chat.
As a European community, Clan diversity is one of our huge strengths, but it can also lead to communication issues and unhappiness. To that end, we have a few ground rules that we ask people to adhere to, to ensure that the Squad Europe community continues to be an excellent space in which to communicate, collaborate, and contribute.
This isn't an exhaustive list of things that you can't do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it's intended — a guide to make it easier to be excellent to each other. We expect it to be followed in spirit as much as in the letter.
Your behaviour/admin work will be seen by other people, and you in turn will depend on the work of others. Any decision you take will affect players and community members, and you should take those consequences into account when making decisions.
The Community is built on volunteer time both from participants and organizers. It is possible that your question or contribution or suggestion might not receive an immediate response.
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. We expect members of the Squad Europe community to be respectful when communicating with other community members, as well as with people outside the Squad Europe
Everyone in the Squad Europe community should feel welcome, regardless of their background. Please be courteous, respectful and polite to fellow community members. No offensive comments of any kind. Implied violence, intimidation, oppression, harassing, disruption of talks or other bullshit will not be tolerated.
We don't all speak the same language at the same skill level. Clear communication can help to avoid misunderstandings, as can remembering that our interpretations of words can be different depending on our backgrounds. Having context is important. It's better to ask for clarification than to make assumptions. Disagreements, social and technical, are normal, but we expect participants in the project to resolve disagreements constructively — so please avoid flamewars, trolling, personal attacks, and repetitive arguments.
Ask for help when unsure. Nobody is expected to be perfect in this community. Asking questions early avoids many problems later, so questions are encouraged, though they may be directed to the appropriate forum. Those who are asked should be responsive and helpful.
All Admins, Partner-Member and others, including Full Contact Members, are required to follow this Code of Conduct. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everyone.
