Our goal with the BlockCAT Community is to build an inclusive space where users from all over the world can connect, learn, educate and share ideas with each other about utilizing Smart Contracts for personal and professional applications.
To ensure we’re continuously working towards this goal, we’ve drafted up a quick Community Code of Conduct to help guide the conversation, which should allow us to facilitate even more positive and collaborative connections moving forward.
Note: If you haven't joined our community, what are you waiting for?
Treat every person in our community with respect. Disrespect will not be tolerated under any circumstance. The conversations we have in this community set the tone for everyone. Help us influence the future of this space by choosing to engage in discussions that make this forum an interesting place to be — and avoiding those that do not.
We all started off as #blockchain and #cryptocurrency noobs. Even the experts in this space had to start somewhere. If members are asking basic questions, don’t berate them. Instead, use it as an opportunity to educate them and point them towards the resources they need to be successful. We’re big believers that an educated market is a healthy market.
Respect the Admins/Moderators
If an administrator or moderator asks you to refrain from doing a certain action; please respect them. Many of our mods are helping out on a volunteer basis, so while they’re not technically employed by BlockCAT, please treat them with the same respect that you would treat our team.
Share Your Feedback
At BlockCAT, our goal is to build an intuitive, easy to use solution that can be utilized by anyone to deploy smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain; regardless of their technical aptitude.
If you have any ideas of how we can make our product better, please take 20 seconds to submit feedback to our team. We discuss every piece of feedback that comes our way, so this is by far and away the best avenue to get your voice heard.
Be a Jerk
Don’t harass or grief other members, impersonate people, or expose anyone's private information. Do not ridicule others based on their views and opinions. It’s okay to disagree or have opposing viewpoints. That’s how we learn and grow.
Don’t post anything that any decent human being would consider rude, offensive or abusive. Don’t post anything obscene or sexually explicit. Some people engage in our communities during work hours, so keep the language, links, and images SFW (safe for work). When possible, try to use text to convey your thoughts/opinions instead of memes or gifs.
Feed the Trolls
When you see spammy or troll-like behaviour, don’t engage. We appreciate when our community sticks up for our company, but sometimes it encourages the bad behaviour by acknowledging its existence. Instead, just let a moderator know and they’ll take care of it.
Spread FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt)
FUD is generally a strategy to influence perception by disseminating negative and dubious or false information and a manifestation of the appeal to fear. If you’re not a fan of what we’re doing at BlockCAT, that’s fine, but keep the negative views and opinions out of our community.
Post Spam + Outbound Links
There is a zero tolerance rule on spam/scam and referrals (including anything that could even remotely be associated as such). If you’re wondering if you can post it, clear it with a mod first. Breaking this rule results in an automatic ban.
We believe that everyone should have the right to join, participate and get value from our community. If we feel that you are hindering other members' ability to do those things, we will take action accordingly.
We really don't like banning people, so we'll start off by giving you a warning. If you continue to disrupt the community, we will be forced to remove you from the channel.
