re: Code of Conduct generator! VIEW POST


Good concept. It can be tough to write these and this is a great start. I'd make a few suggestions for improvement:

  • Make some of the recommended items default to being checked. For example, I think sexual behavior or imagery and graphics and disturbing content, inequality of any kind may be ones that you want to default to checking even if the person can choose to uncheck them (though I'm not sure I see the point of a CoC that doesn't do at least the minimum).
  • You might have options for an in-person conference/event/meetup, online conference/event, or web site. For example, in the case of a conference, there might be mention of offensive imagery or language on slides or by speakers and not just attendees.
  • Along those lines, I generally recommend that CoC's for in-person events include a phone to call or text so that people can report issues immediately and even potentially anonymously. Some in person may also have staff available for reporting. Also, for in person events especially, the contact information, in my opinion, should be early and immediately accessible rather than at the bottom.

Again, just suggestions, but I like the work so far.


Oh, some valuable stuff here! Thanks a lot! I’ll think about that.
