Authors/Editors - infinitehomie.eth#4930, MinaHasNoIdea#6706
Scope - Patch
Propose a Directive to update the Code Of Conduct. The Code of Conduct was Created pre to in -Season 5 to attend to general differences in the DAO. This Code of Conduct does not include directives towards bad actors, conflicts that go beyond Ombuds Inclusion, Or perceived behavior towards contributors.
This document is intended to give strength to decision making regarding contributors across the dao. This was created as a portion of a response to the recent actions regarding Coordinape. Actions took place that can be discussed here. Which were not in alignment with Bankless DAO. Directives based on these actions have not been documented. This Change to the Code of Conduct can serve as the start, to make those changes to further protect from bad actors.
See the following suggested change below:
Code of Conduct
Every member of the BanklessDAO community is expected and is responsible to treat others with respect and dignity. We are a globally distributed community representing numerous cultures, languages, and time zones. It’s our highest priority to be the most welcoming and inviting onboarding experience for Web3. To this end, we encourage any conflict to first be broached between involved persons. If this does not resolve the matter we encourage team champions or guild coordinators to help resolve the conflict. If this still doesn’t resolve the matter, parties are encouraged to approach the Ombuds office to help resolve the dispute. Our unity and internal cohesion are essential prerequisites to accomplishing our mission.
Code of Conduct:
(ADD) This Is to serve as a Guide for Members across the Ecosystem. This conduct should extend but not be limited to:
In exceptional cases in which real life interaction is facilitated between the members in the context of DAO related activities, the validity of the code of conduct should be maintained.
Every member of the BanklessDAO community is expected and is responsible to treat others with respect and dignity. (ADD) Mutual respect is encouraged between contributors. Due to the multicultural and diverse nature of the space we are building, misunderstandings, disagreements and conflicts are to be expected as occurring phenomena.
However, there are certain actions that do not align with Bankless DAO.
- Threats and acts of violence towards another contributor
- Violence definition can be found here - Violence - Google Search
- Violence is defined by the World Health Organization in the WRVH as “the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself, another person, or against a group or community, that either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment
- Vulgar comments towards contributors pertaining to sex, or nudity
- Discrimination based on one’s immutable characteristics (sex, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, age, neurodiversity, or disability)
Contributors are expected to behave in a manner that acts in good faith of other contributors. Instances of
- Abuse of DAO status or held role
are not aligned with the mission of BanklessDAO. These instances can potentially open the DAO to severe issues in the Web3 ecosystem.
In order to keep developing the idea of a comprehensive code of conduct, this proposal welcomes criticism and ideas from different levels of contributors in the DAO. BanklessDAO strives to be a community that can comfortably incubate ideas of all kinds to better promote the mission of the DAO. We welcome all ideas for evaluation and deeper understanding.
Should conflict arise, members are encouraged to first attempt to resolve the conflict in a respectful manner. Should the conflict not be resolved at this point, we encourage contributors to reach out to the governance related role holders.These members could be Project Champions, Guild Coordinators, or Governance Coordinators. Should further resolution be needed, contributors can reach out to the Ombuds Office to mediate in the matter.
Should a member admit to fraud, embezzlement, theft, or wrongdoing of a legal nature, a member from Ombuds should the matter with the suspected party. Should there either be evidence of serious wrongdoing, or an admission of wrongdoing, the member will be subject to possible removal from the DAO, all statuses removed, and the wallet address red flagged, depending exactly on the nature of the offense. This final decision will be left to the DAO, Legal Guild, Ops Department, or Governance Department.
Change to the DAO Code of Conduct that can be used to help make decisions on bad actors, and important issues.
None yet. Will look to potential Governance documents to guide with the “actions” based on a code of conduct.
