QuadNet Code of Conduct (CoC)
Members of the QuadNet community are open, considerate, and respectful. Behavours that reinforce these values contribute to a positive environment, and include:
- Being open. Members of the community are open to collaboration, whether it is on standards and specifications, patches, problems, or otherwise.
- Acknowledging time and effort. We are respectful of the volunteer efforts that permeate the QuadNet community. We are thoughtful when addressing the efforts of others, keeping in mind that often times the labor was completed simply for the good of the community.
- Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences. We are receptive to constructive comments and criticism, as the experiences and skill sets of other members contribute to the whole of our efforts.
- Showing empathy towards other community members. We are attentive in our communications, whether in person or online, and We are tactful when approaching differing views.
- Being considerate. Members of the community are considerate of their peers.
- Being respectful. We are respectful of others, their positions, their skills, their commitments, and their efforts.
- Gracefully accepting constructive criticism. When we disagree, we are courteous in raising our issues.
- Using welcoming and inclusive language. We are accepting of all who wish to take part in our activities, fostering an environment where anyone can participate and everyone can make a difference.
- Obey the law. All QuadNet users must obey all applicable laws that are applicable to them and wherever their transmissions might be heard.
Every member of our community has the right to have their identity respected. The QuadNet community is dedicated to providing a positive experience for everyone, regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, disability, mental and/or physical illnesses, physical appearance, political views, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion, education, socioeconomic status, or other differences.
Be excellent to each other.

- Creating additional online accounts in order to harass another person or circumvent a ban
- Sexual language and imagery in online communities or in any conference venue, including talks
- Insults, put downs, or jokes that are based upon stereotypes, that are exclusionary, or that hold others up for ridicule
- Unwelcome sexual attention or advances
- Sustained disruption of online community discussions, in-person presentations, or other in-person events

- Other conduct that is inappropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds

This Code of Conduct applies to all people involved with the QuadNet Project, in all spaces that QuadNet project members control, including but not limited to:
- QuadNet io groups
- QuadNet IRC or other chat rooms
- QuadNet mailing lists, and email communications
- Reflectors owned by the QuadNet group and any Smart Group or STARnet Group operating in the QuadNet domain
- Other QuadNet social media pages
- QuadNet Github or other software forges
- Other, as-yet unknown mediums for interpersonal interaction
In short, all interactions within the QuadNet realm of influence are expected to be consistent with this CoC, between all people.
If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the QuadNet administrators may take any action they deem appropriate, from warnings up to temporary or permanent bans and blocks on all QuadNet platforms.
If you believe that someone is violating the code of conduct, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the QuadNet working group as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
When in doubt, the ARRL guide for Amateur Radio operations may be useful. (If in conflict with the QuadNet CoC here, the QuadNet CoC prevails.)
This Code of Conduct was derrived from the M17 Project Code of Conduct, which is in turn based on language from many others.
