In addition to the already posted beautifully formatted Charter for the EOS Go forums, I felt a desire to make another copy available that would show up via text searches, and would facilitate quoting and replying. This post provides that copy.

EOSGo Forums Charter

01.08.2018 - forums.eosgo.io

Mission: To be the EOS community’s preferred hub for Q&A, discussion, and consensus.

Objectives:

  • 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.

Scope:

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.

FAQ:

  • 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.
