Updated: August 16, 2019
All members and other persons are expected to abide by the Code of Conduct when communicating in the HackSoc Nottingham Community.
If what you're doing would violate the University of Nottingham Students' Union or MLH Code of Conduct, you shouldn't be doing it. You can find them at https://www.su.nottingham.ac.uk/societies/committee/events/policies-and-guidelines/ and https://github.com/MLH/mlh-policies/blob/master/code-of-conduct.md, respectively.
The HackSoc Community should be a is place for all members to discuss their thoughts and ideas without fear of facing discrimination, harassment, or any other kind of abuse.
Harassment and abuse are strictly forbidden, and anything deemed to be as such will be faced with the appropriate repercussions.
Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, social class, economic status, veteran status, sexual images, deliberate intimidation, sustained disruption, and unwelcome sexual attention. If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that counts as harassment and is enough reason to stop doing it. -from the MLH Code of Conduct
If you're asked to stop doing something because it is making them uncomfortable, you're expected comply immediately.
If you feel as though you've been victim to harassment or abuse by a member of the community you're advised to speak to a member of the committee (you can find their individual contact detailst at hacksoc.net/committee.)
