Code of Conduct
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
- 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:
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, itself, hard.
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)
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
- Must be on topic
- Must NOT give intentionally misleading advice
Must NOT be images/memes unless relevant or asked for in the
Must NOT be single words or phrases without explanation.
