@blaggacao Unfortunately I can’t refer to your changes directly, and only quote the current state of “my own” post. Thanks for pointing out your additions in separate posts. Maybe Discourse is too blunt a tool and we should switch to git/GitHub and continue as an RFC?
Strongly in favor of adding the good-faith-aspect somehow, but I dislike metaphorical wording in this context, as I think it stands in the way of clarity. Can we matter-of-factly distill from the other thread how we would say that we default to assuming good faith in our interactions?
You changed the message, because now we’d collaborate on things that interest us mutually, instead of collaborating because doing so is in our mutual interest. For me the former is less important, as it easily derives from volunteering, but the latter is something we may want to emphasize, as it is easy to lose track of over day-to-day issues.
I doubt referring to friendship is considerate, given how some people feel about things here.
What’s the cause here? Please, let’s not add blanks. And no, no one owes anything to anyone, that’s implied by the statement that we’re a volunteer community.
It’s trivially true that resources are limited, and I tried to incorporate that by asking for deliberately considerate communication - which is observably non-trivial. Sometimes I feel we may need to add something like “we treat each other as human beings”, but that would go in the same direction - it should be trivially true.
This is not true. There is no obligation to assume responsibility.
First two statements: I don’t expect any consensus on this and will remove them.
Last statement: Is this what you observe? Sounds arbitrary to me.
I will also remove the additional headlines and any blanks. Let’s try to keep semantic and visual noise down as much as possible. Working on contents is challenge enough for me.
Also, where did it go that everyone is encouraged to review and that we navigate by RFCs?
I’m in favor of adding something very close to that, will have to think more about exact wording.
I’d add something like:
We try to establish an environment of psychological safety. Where personal conflicts arise, we resolve them in private, and seek help from moderators [link to appropraite list] if required.
We try, because we can’t say we have already achieved this.
Shamelessly generalizing that beautiful statement… How about adding something along its lines?
@nicoo Would this address your concerns?
I also want to reword both headings. Maybe:
How do we communicate?
What do we stand for?
How to contribute effectively?
