Code of Conduct

Our Community

Members of the Mido community are open, considerate, and respectful. Behaviours that reinforce these values contribute to a positive environment, and include:

  • Being open. Members of the community are open to collaboration, whether it’s on patches, problems, or otherwise.

  • Focusing on what is best for the community. We’re respectful of the processes set forth in the community, and we work within them.

  • Acknowledging time and effort. We’re respectful of the volunteer efforts that permeate the Mido community. We’re 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’re 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’re attentive in our communications, whether in person or online, and we’re tactful when approaching differing views.

  • Being considerate. Members of the community are considerate of their peers – other Mido users.

  • Being respectful. We’re 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’re accepting of all who wish to take part in our activities, fostering an environment where anyone can participate and everyone can make a difference.

  • Creating additional online accounts in order to harass another person or circumvent a ban

You can also contact one or several organization admins directly:

We will then immediately discuss with the problematic user and convey why their behavior was inappropriate. We will also explain what the user can do to improve their behavior in the future. We will also explain that if the user continues to behave inappropriately, they will be banned from the community. Depending on the severity of the violation, we may also ban the user immediately.
