Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct is applicable to all social media channels operated by me (Luca Hammer). Especially lucahammer.com/blog (my own content and comments), twitter.com/Luca (my own content and replies) and facebook.com/lucahammer (my own content and comments).

My Pledge

I as owner and moderator pledge to make participation in my projects and communities a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

I pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community.

My Standard

Examples of behavior that contributes to a positive environment for my projects and communities include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Demonstrating empathy and kindness toward other people
  • Being respectful of differing opinions, viewpoints, and experiences
  • Giving and gracefully accepting constructive feedback
  • Accepting responsibility and apologizing to those affected by our mistakes, and learning from the experience
  • Focusing on what is best not just for us as individuals, but for the overall community

Examples of unacceptable behavior include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery, and sexual attention or advances of any kind
  • Trolling, insulting or derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or email address, without their explicit permission
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting

Enforcement Responsibilities

I am responsible for clarifying and enforcing my standards of acceptable behavior and will take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any behavior that I deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

I have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject replies, followers, comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, and will communicate reasons for moderation decisions when appropriate.

Scope

This Code of Conduct applies within spaces on my social media channels that allow for contributions by third parties. Especially through replies and comments. It applies to my own contributions as well.

Enforcement

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting me through the messaging options on each platforms (Twitter DMs and Facebook messages are open) or abuse@lucahammer.com. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated promptly and fairly.

I am obligated to respect the privacy and security of the reporter of any incident.
