The Argonauts community is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of members in any form.
This code of conduct applies to all of the Argonauts’ spaces, including the website, the digital environment of our Circles, and events. This Code of Conduct applies to every member, and all members are required to accept it. Members are responsible for the conduct of their family and team members within the Argonauts community. Anyone who violates this Code of Conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces or the Argonauts community itself at the discretion of the Membership Office.
The Argonauts community is built on a foundation of mutual trust and respect, as this is elemental to our Trust Circles. We hope to create an environment in which diverse individuals can collaborate and interact in a positive and affirming way. Examples of behavior that contributes to creating this sort of environment include:
The Argonauts community will not tolerate harassment of any kind. Examples of harassment include:
If you have questions or concerns about these issues please feel free to reach out to the Membership Office under firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are being harassed by a member of our community, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the Membership Office under email@example.com. The Membership Office will respond to any complaint within 48 hours.
This Code of Conduct applies to our community’s spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of our community outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by our members seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The Membership Office reserves the right to exclude people from the community based on their past behavior, including behavior outside of our spaces and behavior towards people who are not in this community.
We reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.
Every Code of Conduct violation report will be treated with seriousness and care. If a member’s immediate safety and security is threatened, an individual member of the Membership Office may take any action that they deem appropriate, up to and including temporarily banning the offender from the community. In less urgent situations, at least two members of the Membership Office will discuss the offense and mutually arrive at a suitable response, which will be shared with the offender privately. Whatever the resolution that they decide upon, the decision of the admins involved in a violation case will be considered final.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of our members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Members asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a member engages in harassing behavior, the Membership Office may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the community and identification of the member as a harasser to other members. At the discretion of the Membership Office, or by request, one or more of the parties involved may request to discuss the violation and how to avoid similar situations in the future.
