Rules and Guidelines
Hackers are diverse and complex, with many different interests and passions. These rules are in place so that everyone can feel comfortable participating in C2C.
If you think they need editing or don’t cover something important, please let us know at [email protected].
These are the rules/the things this space is not for. We tried to keep them short, with more in-depth explanations in the appendix.
Breaking any of these will result in your prompt removal from C2C.
No harassment, including personal attacks.
No spam. If Gmail wouldn’t put it in my inbox, it shouldn’t be in C2C.
This includes doing attention-catching things like writing in all caps, using clickbait headlines,
or otherwise editing the post or preview to pop out at the cost of other posts.
Posts not relating to hackathons or tech will also be considered spam.
No shitposting, bad programmer jokes, or memes.
No recruiting for your startup, company, job, or organization.
No posting requests or giveaways for free stuff/invites.
Those belong in Code2Create.
No illegal/pirated content, requests for it,
or information regarding the distribution of it.
No telling people they or their post is not welcome in Code 2 Create.
If you think a post does not belong in C2C,
report the post or message an admin. If you make other people feel unwelcome in C2C,
we will remove you from the group.
Code 2 Create is the all-inclusive hackathons community.
We encourage everyone to participate and are committed to building a community for all.
Although we will fail at times, we seek to treat everyone both as fairly and equally as possible.
Whenever a participant has made a mistake, we expect them to take responsibility for it.
Although this list cannot be exhaustive, we explicitly honor diversity in age, gender, gender identity or expression, culture, ethnicity, language, national origin,
political beliefs, profession, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and technical ability.
We will not tolerate discrimination based on any of the protected characteristics above,
including participants with disabilities. There is no one true hacker.
Our community prioritizes marginalized people’s safe existence in the community. We will not tolerate posts encouraging:
Insensitivity toward boundary statements, such as “leave me alone,” “go away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you”
Racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behaviors or assumptions
(although these discussions may be moved to organising committee debate if they better fit its guidelines)
However, if you have a post that falls in the above categories yet you feel still belongs in C2C, you can message a moderator to discuss it.
We’ve had posts like these in the past that turned into constructive discussions with a bit of reframing. Talking about hard problems is,
To encourage a more serious discussion on your post, you may preface it with a [serious] tag.
Posts with the serious tag as well as their comments
