WomANZ has these community guidelines in place to make this community a friendly, welcoming and accepting place for all her members.
WomANZ is a volunteer initiative. The aim of the moderators and admins will be to keep this collaborative space friendly and professional. Moderators and Admins reserve the right to remove members or not accept applications from those who do not abide by the community guidelines. Moderators will intervene based on discussions that they see within the Discord, so please follow the rules. They will not take action or get involved with personal conflicts that may occur between members or with individuals outside of the Discord. We encourage you to read the Resources page to understand the best ways to deal with conflicts or harassment.
If you have a disagreement with a community member, we encourage that you discuss the matter with them in private. Let them know how their behaviour has made you feel and how you don’t think it’s appropriate. If you believe their behaviour to be in breach of the terms of service in which the incident occurred (e.g. Twitch), report their channel on the appropriate networks.
As a member of WomANZ you are representing the community. If your public behaviour online does not abide by the community guidelines you may risk being removed from the community. If you see a member displaying behaviour that does not abide with the community guidelines or the terms of service of the platform they are engaging on, please send an email with links (clips/vods/tweets) and context to firstname.lastname@example.org. The moderators will investigate the issue and may issue warnings or take action at their discretion depending on severity of the situation. Moderators may or may not communicate the final outcome of an investigation. Admins and moderators will not engage with those who have been banned.
Please be mindful that the admins and moderators volunteer their time outside of their jobs and lives to help run WomANZ. They are not trained counsellors, mediators or legal specialists and cannot provide advice on these matters.
