EOS Go Forums Charter
These forums are represented by a group of five admin volunteers dedicated to open communication; below we present our charter.
Attached is a downloadable version of our charter and below are images of the document for those who'd like to view within this post.
Edit - 09 Jan. 2018 - Thanks to Thomas Cox's suggestion and compilation I am adding the charter text to this post for the machines.
EOSGo Forums Charter
01.08.2018 - forums.eosgo.io
Mission: To be the EOS community’s preferred hub for Q&A, discussion, and consensus.
- Provide resources for EOS block producers, governance builders, developers and project managers to self-organize and successfully launch EOS mainnet.
- Coordinate events supporting the June 2018 genesis block.
- Adapt with the EOS community to continue our Mission after blockchain launch.
EOS Go forums shall always strive to respect freedom of speech and opinion without censorship.
Two distinctions will be made, only when instigated by the EOS Go community:
- Hateful/abusive behavior is flagged by three or more community members. Harmful content will be removed and the user given a warning for first infraction, ban for the second.
- Spam is blocked by forum bots and confirmed under review by 3 of 5 admins. Same warning/ban process as above.
Admin powers include:
- “Minor changes” including cosmetic, moving miscategorized posts, and software maintenance.
Admin powers do not include:
- Post removal or banning of users without following due process above.
- Editing of posts at any time.
- Modification of upvotes.
How are rules made and new forum categories created?
Suggestions should be posted to the Forum Improvements category - if a suggestion receives upvotes equal to more than 51% of the community it will be approved. “Minor” rule changes will be made when 3 of 5 admins agree.
What gets flagged as spam and how can I dispute?
Spam will be further covered in a post under the “EOS Go Forum Improvements” category.
Why would a user get banned?
- For repeatedly making posts that are off-topic, unprofessional, or disrespectful of others; being flagged by three community members, and receiving one unheeded warning.
- A pattern of spamming the forum or of using the spam flag maliciously against non-spam content (e.g. flagging content they merely disagree with)
- Further community consensus that they are “trolling”. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_troll
Who are the current admins and why were they appointed?
- EOS Go started with a group of volunteers and block.one employees to realize the EOS.IO vision of a community launch in 2018. The current admins are volunteers.
Why was this platform created?
- To provide a forum in which the community could self-organize to successfully launch EOS public blockchain.
