5. Shared ownership of community projects

“Don’t fight. Fork.”

Oftentimes it happens that projects showcased on this website gain new partners, extra resources and new directions. Glimps cvba might itself decide that it wants to partner up with them. If this happens to your project, the usual rules of communally developed initiatives apply: acknowledge the help you get, be mindful of the goals and feelings of those helping you, maintain a clear social contract with them. We recommend preserving and honouring the freedom to fork: if a group, or community, cannot agree anymore on where to go, the dissidents are encouraged to fork and make their own iteration of the project rather than fight for control of the original one. Forks should be named so as to be clearly distinguishable from the original branch.

6. Community Guidelines

6.1. Introduction

Accounts on this website accounts are intended for people to cooperate within and across projects trying to build a better world. The word “better” has here a fairly broad range of meaning :slight_smile:

These Community Guidelines are here to help you understand what it means to be a member of this online community.

These guidelines are inspired from those of Flickr.

6.2. Things to do

  • Play nice. We’re a global community of many types of people, who all want to feel safe and comfortable in this space and who may not think what you think, believe what you believe, or see what you see. So, be polite and respectful in your interactions with other members.

  • Only upload content that you have created. Respect the copyright of others. This means don’t steal content that other people have shared and pass it off as your own; use links, quotation marks and whatever other sign you deem appropriate to acknowledge people’s authorship.

  • Enjoy! This is your community. Celebrate your creativity and smarts, be social and share what’s important to you. See the world through others’ eyes, participate, find your mentors, and expand your horizons!

6.3. Things not to do

  • Here’s the deal: We like to give second chances. However, when we discover you stepping across any of the lines listed below, we will take action, which may mean deleting your account with or without warning.

  • Don’t upload anything that isn’t yours or licensed as open content. Copyright and all that.

  • Don’t upload content that is illegal or prohibited. If we find you doing that, your account will be deleted and we’ll take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities.

  • Don’t vent your frustrations, rant, insult, or bore the brains out of others. This website is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, spam, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we’ll send you a warning or delete your account.

  • Don’t be creepy. You know the guy. Don’t be that guy.

6.4. In Conclusion

If you don’t feel that you can abide by our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe this online community isn’t for you. We’ve crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within this online community has a good time.
