# TNL Code of Conduct The TNL project welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. Therefore, we have adopted this code of conduct in order to create an open and welcoming environment for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender, level of experience, education, nationality, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation. No matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you, you are welcome in our community. ## Our standards 1. __Be respectful.__ Disagreements are inevitable among people in a large and diverse community. Remain respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences. Disagreement is no excuse for poor behaviour or personal attacks. 2. __Assume good faith.__ There are many ways to reach the goal of the project, which may differ from your ways. Assume that other people are working towards this goal. Keep in mind that the people you communicate with may not be native English speakers or may have different cultural backgrounds. Be careful in the words that you choose to avoid conflicts and misapprehension. 3. __Be inquisitive.__ TNL is a large and complex project where nobody knows everything. It is always good to ask questions early to avoid problems later. Similarly, offers for help are equally important. 4. __Be collaborative.__ TNL is built on the work done in other projects and it is in turn used by further projects. When you contribute to TNL, be willing to explain to others how it works, so that they can build on your work to make it even better. 5. __Try to be concise.__ Keep in mind that what you write once will be read by many other persons. Try to use a clear and concise language, especially when a long explanation is necessary. Try to stay on topic, so that the whole discussion can be followed as efficiently as possible. ## In case of problems While this code of conduct should be adhered to by participants, we recognize that sometimes people may have a bad day, or be unaware of some of the guidelines in this code of conduct. When that happens, you may reply to them and point out this code of conduct. However, it should still adhere to the relevant parts of this code of conduct; in particular, it should not be abusive or disrespectful. Assume good faith; it is more likely that participants are unaware of their bad behaviour than that they intentionally try to degrade the quality of the discussion. Serious or persistent offenders will be temporarily or permanently banned from participating in the TNL community. Complaints should be made to the maintainers of the TNL project.
