Community Guidelines

The Callisto Network community is dedicated to providing a harassment-free space. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. The guidelines below apply to all Callisto Network community spaces, including but not limited to Telegram, Twitter, GitHub, and Facebook. This applies to all community members, including Callisto Network development foundation members, and applies to individual or private communication among the business community.

The community leaders reserve the right to remove anyone who fails to comply with these guidelines at their sole discretion.

Please be aware that some Callisto Network community spaces may have additional rules. These rules will be publicly posted and available for review; it is the responsibility of all participants to read and abide by these rules.

Expected‭ Behavior

  • Participate genuinely and proactively.‭ ‬In‭ ‬doing‭ ‬so,‭ ‬you‭ ‬contribute‭ ‬to‭ ‬the‭ ‬health‭ ‬and‭ ‬longevity‭ ‬of‭ ‬this‭ ‬community.
  • Exercise‭ caution and‭ ‬respect‭ ‬in‭ ‬your‭ ‬speech‭ ‬and‭ ‬actions. Attempt‭ to collaborate and avoid ‬conflict.
  • Refrain‭ ‬from‭ ‬demeaning,‭ ‬discriminatory,‭ ‬or‭ ‬harassing‭ ‬behavior‭ ‬and‭ ‬speech.
  • Be‭ ‬mindful‭ ‬of‭ ‬your‭‬ ‬fellow‭ ‬participants.‭ ‬Alert‭ ‬community‭ ‬leaders‭ ‬if‭ ‬you‭ observe violations‭ ‬of these community guidelines.
  • Due to the potential financial impact on our members, please use caution when posting. If you have a serious problem, please contact an administrator privately as soon as possible. After your discussion, the administrator will summarize the resolution, avoiding any unnecessary panic.
  • Aside from clearly defined groups, all communication on the Callisto Network spaces is in English. Any messages posted in a language other than the official language of the channel will be deleted.

Since this is a harassment-free space, the following list contains some examples of things that should never be seen in the community.

  • Threats of violence.
  • Deliberate intimidation.
  • Stalking.
  • Harassing photography, recording, or trolling.
  • Incitement of violence towards any individual, including encouraging a person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm.
  • Hate speech (offensive comments related to race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion, disability, mental illness, physical appearance).
  • Excessive profanity.
  • NSFW content.
  • Ref-links.
  • Spam.
  • Pornography (Including links).
  • Sending any form of malware.
  • Deliberate “outing” of any aspect of a person’s identity without their consent, except as necessary to protect vulnerable people from intentional abuse.
  • A pattern of inappropriate social contact, such as requesting/assuming inadequate levels of intimacy with others.
  • Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease.
  • Publication of non-harassing private communication.
  • Sustained disruption of discussion.

Reporting abuse

If you are being harassed by a member of the Callisto Community or have any other concerns, please contact the community leaders at [email protected] and/or contact the specific community administrators channel. If the person who is harassing you is a community leader or administrator, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.

These community guidelines apply to Callisto community spaces. However, if you are being harassed by a member of the Callisto community outside of our spaces, we still want to know it. We will review all good-faith reports of harassment by Callisto community members. This includes harassment that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from the Callisto community based on their past behavior, including behavior outside of the Callisto community spaces and behavior towards people who are not in the Callisto community.

To protect the response team’s employees, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe in having been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.

We will respect confidentiality requests to protect victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Callisto community members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their permission.

Consequences

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, our response team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including removing that participant from all Callisto community spaces.

Addressing‭ ‬Grievances

If‭ ‬you‭ ‬feel‭ ‬you‭ ‬have‭ ‬been‭ ‬falsely‭ ‬or‭ ‬unfairly‭ reported for violating‭ ‬these community guidelines,‭ ‬you‭ ‬should‭ ‬notify‭ [email protected] ‬with‭ ‬a‭ ‬concise‭‬ description‭ ‬of‭ ‬your‭ ‬grievance.
