Code of Conduct – Brandpa

We’re so happy to have you on our Slack team in Brandpa. Welcome!

The purpose of the Brandpa Slack community is to allow its members to share knowledge about the domain names you have on Brandpa, your thoughts about the domaining industry, and for general chat (most often) related to the topic of domain names. This is the place to ask and answer questions, post ideas and discoveries, and encourage one another as you sell names and become a better domainer.

To achieve this, we strive to keep the community a fun and productive environment for everyone, and we ask every member of the community to be respectful of this space and one another at all times.

Use Appropriate Language

Be kind to one another! Please avoid posting personal attacks, threats, profanity, or sexually-explicit language in your activities within the community. If you feel that there is inappropriate activity happening on Slack and don’t feel comfortable addressing it directly, please let us know as soon as possible.

Avoid certain Direct Messages, Tagging or general posts

To help keep the community a welcoming place for all, please refrain from sending direct messages or tagging other community members who have requested not to be contacted. If you direct message or tag someone, they are not obligated to respond. Likewise, if you are tagged in a post or direct messaged, you are not obligated to respond. If the issue persists, or if the message is inappropriate in nature, please refrain from engaging in the conversation and let us know.

Avoid illegal activity

Do not post anything that can be construed as advising others to break the law. In particular, do not post links to pirated content, and do not provide advice on illegal bypassing of software security protection.

Confidentiality and Intellectual Property

Please do not post or link to any private information (your own or others’). This includes credit card numbers, passwords or any sensitive personally identifiable information, such as social security numbers, address, etc. Please do not post anything that may be considered the intellectual property of someone else or of a company.

Avoid Marketing

You are welcome to post endorsements of tools, products or services that you personally found useful, but please refrain from advertising, marketing or any kind of spam. In particular, posting affiliate links to third-party services such that clicking on the link or buying the services within would directly or indirectly financially benefit the member is prohibited.

Access to the Slack Community

In order to create a positive and resourceful environment for members, we restrict Slack usage to selected active sellers. If you are not a seller on Brandpa, your access to Slack will be removed.

If you’re not a Slack member, learn more on how to join here: Slack access for sellers.

Violation of this Code of Conduct

If you violate any portion of the Slack Code of Conduct, regardless of whether or not you violated the same section repeatedly or a combination of sections on different occasions, your access to Slack may be removed.

You will be notified of each strike against the Code of Conduct. We will explain what section of the Code of Conduct has been violated, citing the particular behaviour that resulted in a strike.

If this rule is broken, the poster will receive one warning. There will be no next warning; such member will be deleted from Brandpa’s Slack community permanently.
