HASH’s mission is to enable everybody to make the right decisions. We think this will lead to a more peaceful, understanding, and sustainable world. Our community ultimately brings that vision to life, and we’re honored to play our part. We have an opportunity and responsibility to bring this vision to life in a way that we can all be proud of.
HASH is a global community whose members hold wildly different perspectives, ideas, and experiences. Whilst some of our number are seasoned simulation engineers, others amongst us may be contributing data or code for the very first time.
We are committed to making HASH a welcoming environment for all the different voices and perspectives in our community, while maintaining a space where people are free to express themselves.
We rely on our community members to communicate expectations, moderate their workspaces, and report abusive behavior or content. We do not actively seek out content to moderate, although we have certain automated filters in place to detect and prevent certain types of disallowed and illegal content. By outlining what we expect to see within our community, we hope to help you understand how best to collaborate on HASH, and what type of actions or content may violate our Terms of Service. We will investigate any abuse reports and may moderate public content on our site that we determine to be in violation of our Terms of Service.
The primary purpose of the HASH community is to collaborate on software projects. We want people to work better together. Although we maintain the site, this is a community we build together, and we need your help to make it the best it can be.
We rely on the community to let us know when an issue needs to be addressed. We do not actively monitor the site for offensive content. If you run into something or someone on the site that you find objectionable, here are some tools HASH provides to help you take action immediately:
CONTRIBUTINGfile. Conventions and expectations are often outlined within one or both of these.
You can always contact us to Report Abuse if you need more help dealing with a situation.
We are committed to maintaining a community where users are free to express themselves and challenge one another’s ideas, both technical and otherwise. Such discussions, however, are unlikely to foster fruitful dialog when ideas are silenced because community members are being shouted down or are afraid to speak up. That means you should be respectful and civil at all times, and refrain from attacking others on the basis of who they are. We do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into the following:
There are a variety of actions that we may take when a user reports inappropriate behavior or content. It usually depends on the exact circumstances of a particular case. We recognize that sometimes people may say or do inappropriate things for any number of reasons. Perhaps they did not realize how their words would be perceived. Or maybe they just let their emotions get the best of them. Of course, sometimes, there are folks who just want to spam or cause trouble.
Each case requires a different approach, and we try to tailor our response to meet the needs of the situation that has been reported. We’ll review each abuse report on a case-by-case basis. In each case, we will have a diverse team investigate the content and surrounding facts and respond as appropriate, using these guidelines to guide our decision.
Actions we may take in response to an abuse report include but are not limited to:
These are only guidelines; they do not modify our Terms of Service and are not intended to be a complete list. HASH retains full discretion under our Terms of Service to remove any content or terminate any accounts for activity that violates our Terms on Acceptable Use. These guidelines describe when we will exercise that discretion.
These guidelines are based on GitHub’s own public domain dedicated set, and we thank them.
