Code of Conduct

Last modified on 11 March 2024, version 20240311


Interaction.Site believes our community should be truly welcoming for everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all.

This Code of Conduct is adapted from the Contributor Covenant, version 2.1, available at

Community Impact Guidelines were inspired by Mozilla’s code of conduct enforcement ladder.

We made some additions to fit our community, based on other existing Code of Conduct, see at the bottom of the page. The additions to the Contributor Covenant are in italic characters and followed by an asterisk*.

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behaviour as well as the consequences for unacceptable behaviour. It applies to our online community as well as during our ISLE (Interaction Site Live Events), and between members on their platforms.

We invite all members, staff, partners and other participants to help us realise a safe and positive experience for everyone.

This Code of Conduct applies within all community spaces, and also applies when an individual is officially representing the community in public spaces. Examples of representing our community include using an official email address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event.

We expect all Interaction.Site members, staff, partners and other participants to abide by this code of conduct at all time. *

If you are subject to unacceptable behaviour, notice that someone else is being subject to unacceptable behaviour, or have any other concerns, please notify an administrator as soon as possible. *
