# Zulip Code of Conduct
Like the technical community as a whole, the Zulip team and community is
made up of a mixture of professionals and volunteers from all over the
world, working on every aspect of the mission, including mentorship,
teaching, and connecting people.
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. This code applies equally to
founders, mentors, and those seeking help and guidance.
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 enrich
all of us and the technical communities in which we participate.
## Expected Behavior
The following behaviors are expected and requested of all community members:
* Participate. In doing so, you contribute to the health and longevity of
the community.
* Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.
* Attempt collaboration before conflict. Assume good faith.
* Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.
* Take action or alert community leaders if you notice a dangerous
situation, someone in distress, or violations of this code, even if they
seem inconsequential.
* Community event venues may be shared with members of the public; be
respectful to all patrons of these locations.
## Unacceptable Behavior
The following behaviors are considered harassment and are unacceptable
within the Zulip community:
* Jokes or derogatory language that singles out members of any race,
ethnicity, culture, national origin, color, immigration status, social and
economic class, educational level, language proficiency, sex, sexual
orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status,
political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.
* Violence, threats of violence, or violent language directed against
another person.
* Disseminating or threatening to disseminate another person's personal
* Personal insults of any sort.
* Posting or displaying sexually explicit or violent material.
* Inappropriate photography or recording.
* Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following (online or in person).
* Unwelcome sexual attention. This includes sexualized comments or jokes,
inappropriate touching or groping, and unwelcomed sexual advances.
* Sustained disruption of community events, including talks and
* Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the behaviors above.
## Reporting and Enforcement
Harassment and other code of conduct violations reduce the value of the
community for everyone. If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or
unwelcome, please report it to the community organizers at as soon as possible. You can make a
report either personally or anonymously.
If a community member engages in unacceptable behavior, the community
organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a
temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning (and
without refund in the case of a paid event).
If someone outside the development community (e.g. a user of the Zulip
software) engages in unacceptable behavior that affects someone in the
community, we still want to know. Even if we don't have direct control over
the violator, the community organizers can still support the people
affected, reduce the chance of a similar violation in the future, and take
any direct action we can.
The nature of reporting means it can only help after the fact. If you see
something you can do while a violation is happening, do it. A lot of the
harms of harassment and other violations can be mitigated by the victim
knowing that the other people present are on their side.
All reports will be kept confidential. In some cases we may determine that a
public statement will need to be made. In such cases, the identities of all
victims and reporters will remain confidential unless those individuals
instruct us otherwise.
## Scope
We expect all community participants (contributors, paid or otherwise,
sponsors, and other guests) to abide by this Code of Conduct in all
community venues, online and in-person, as well as in all private
communications pertaining to community business.
This Code of Conduct and its related procedures also applies to unacceptable
behavior occurring outside the scope of community activities when such
behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of
community members.
