General UK Pagan guidelines apply
- We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of level of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or other similar characteristic.
- Please avoid using overtly sexual nicknames or other nicknames that might detract from a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all.
- Please be kind and courteous. There's no need to be mean or rude.
- People have differences of opinion. There is seldom a right answer. That's no reason to be rude. Respect other points of view.
- We will exclude you from interaction if you insult, demean or harass anyone. That is not welcome behaviour. We interpret the term "harassment" as including the definition in the Citizen Code of Conduct; if you have any lack of clarity about what might be included in that concept, please read their definition. In particular, we don't tolerate behavior that excludes people in socially marginalized groups.
- Private harassment is also unacceptable. Don't use the private messaging service to break these rules. If you feel you have been or are being harassed or made uncomfortable by a community member, please contact one of the moderation team immediately. Whether you're a regular contributor or a newcomer, we care about making this community a safe place for you and we've got your back.
- Likewise any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other attention-stealing behaviour is not welcome.
In this community we strive to go the extra step to look out for each other. Try to be your best self and to practice respect and tolerance for all opinions. Don't deliberately set out to be offensive. Remember that some people may be undergoing all sorts of issues in real life that you have no idea about. Don't add to the stress. We won't tolerate people being driven away through bad behaviour by a poster.
If someone takes issue with something you said or did, try not to be defensive or aggressive in your response. Just stop doing what it was they complained about and apologize. It's usually down to a misunderstanding. Remember that it's your responsibility to make your fellow site members comfortable. Everyone wants to get along and we are all here first and foremost because we want to talk about paganism. You will find that people will be eager to assume good intent and forgive as long as you earn their trust.
