This document is always updating to reflect our values as the community grows. We are committed to making this slack a safe space for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, age, or religion.
TL;DR – Don’t be a jerk and update your avatar!
As part of the Motion Design Artists Slack group, you agree to the following behavior…
- We are respectful to others. Have honest discussions but do not personally attack other members. Be open to opinions that might differ from your own.
- We encourage people to ask and respond to questions of all levels. Respond to questions in a helpful way and refrain from ridiculing another user for asking an “easy” question. If you ever feel uncomfortable asking a question in a specific channel, please reach out to an admin to discuss a resolution.
- We are part of the same community which also includes people from Adobe, Maxon, Red Giant, many scripts/extensions/plug-in creators, and more. Please be respectful and constructive in your feedback about their products.
- We refrain from using language that can be considered oppressive (systemically or otherwise), eg. sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, classist, etc. – this includes (but is not limited to) various slurs. Avoid using offensive topics as a form of humor.
- We have zero tolerance for abuse, harassment, or discrimination and take complaints from our users seriously.
- We do not tolerate advocating piracy in any form.
- Update your default avatar with your own customized picture asap! 🙂
If you say something that is found offensive and are called out…
- Listen without interruption.
- Believe what the person is saying & do not attempt to disqualify what they have to say.
- Ask for tips / help with avoiding making the offense in the future.
- Apologize and ask forgiveness.
