Code of Conduct
We have an exciting opportunity and responsibility to make this forum an effective platform and resource for discussing and solving real problems all of us confront as entrepreneurs and business leaders. It also will become, we hope, a great place to celebrate wins.
Our intent is to create a place for further collaboration, support, and brainstorming. This is a civilized place for connecting with other users, learning new skills, sharing feedback and ideas, and finding all the support you need for your projects. By participating in this forum, you are agreeing to the same Terms of Service that apply to oakmoonco.com, as well as this forum-specific Code of Conduct.
With this Code of Conduct, we hope to help you understand how best to collaborate in the Oak Moon Consulting Forum, what you can expect from moderators, and what type of actions or content may result in temporary or permanent suspension from participation. We will investigate any abuse reports and may moderate public content within the form that we determine to be in violation of either our Terms of Service or this Code of Conduct.
We value the different perspectives, ideas, and experiences and are committed to making the forum a welcoming environment for different voices and perspectives, while maintaining a space where people are free to express themselves.
We ask that everyone who participates in the forum do so in the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment. We as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in the forum a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, ability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
Treat the Oak Moon Consulting Forum with respect. We are a shared resource — a place to share skills, knowledge, and interests through ongoing conversation.
Use these Best Practices for Building a Strong Community as you guide to participating in the forum.
Be respectful and considerate
Respect each other. Nothing sabotages healthy conversation like rudeness. Be civil and professional, and don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech. Don’t harass anyone. Treat each other with dignity and consideration in all interactions.
Be welcoming and open-minded. Other Community members may not have the same experience level or background as you, but that doesn't mean they don't have good ideas to contribute. We encourage you to be welcoming to new members and those just getting started.
You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Avoid name-calling, ad hominem attacks, responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content, and knee-jerk contradiction. Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
Communicate with empathy. Disagreements or differences of opinion are a fact of life. Being part of a community means interacting with people from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, many of which may not be your own. If you disagree with someone, try to understand and share their feelings before you address them. This will promote a respectful and friendly atmosphere where people feel comfortable asking questions, participating in discussions, and making contributions.
Contribute in a positive and constructive way.
Improve the discussion. Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.
The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
Be clear and stay on topic. Communicating with strangers on the Internet can be awkward. It's hard to convey or read tone, and sarcasm is frequently misunderstood. Try to use clear language, and think about how it will be received by the other person.
This applies to sharing links, as well. Any links shared in the forum should be shared with the intent of providing relevant and appropriate information. Links should not be posted to simply drive traffic or attention to a site. Links should always be accompanied by a full explanation of the content and purpose of the link. Posting links, especially unsolicited ones, without relevant and valuable context can come across as advertising or serving even more malicious purposes.
Additionally, the forum is for collaboration, sharing ideas, and helping each other get stuff done. Off-topic comments are a distraction (sometimes welcome, but usually not) from getting work done and being productive. Staying on topic helps produce positive and productive discussions.
Share mindfully. When asking others to give you feedback or collaborate on a project, only share valuable and relevant resources to provide context. Don't post links that don't add value to the topic, and don't post unsolicited links to your own projects or sites on other user's threads.
Additionally, don't share sensitive information. We don't allow the sharing of such information in this forum, as it can create security and privacy risks for the poster, as well as other users. If you'd like to invite other forum members to collaborate on a project or work with you, share a link to the project. By sharing the link to your project repo - with some information on what your project is and what kind of help or feedback you're looking for - you can invite others to collaborate with you. You can also add others as outside collaborators on your project to give them special permissions to help you develop your project.
Keep it tidy. Make the effort to put things in the right place, so that we can spend more time discussing and less time cleaning up. So:
Don’t start a topic in the wrong category.
Don’t cross-post the same thing in multiple topics.
Don’t post no-content replies.
Don't "bump" posts, unless you have new and relevant information to share.
Don’t divert a topic by changing it midstream.
Always be honest. Don’t knowingly share incorrect information or intentionally mislead other forum members. If you don’t know the answer to someone’s question but still want to help, you can try helping them research or find resources instead. Oak Moon Consulting staff will also be active in the forum, so if you’re unsure of an answer, it’s likely a moderator will be able to help.
What is not Allowed
Threats of violence. You may not threaten violence towards others or use the site to organize, promote, or incite acts of real-world violence or terrorism. Think carefully about the words you use, the images you post, and even the software you write, and how they may be interpreted by others. Even if you mean something as a joke, it might not be received that way. If you think that someone else might interpret the content you post as a threat, or as promoting violence or terrorism, stop. Don't post it. In extraordinary cases, we may report threats of violence to law enforcement if we think there may be a genuine risk of physical harm or a threat to public safety.
Hate speech and discrimination. While it is not forbidden to broach topics such as age, body size, ability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation, we do not tolerate speech that attacks a person or group of people on the basis of who they are. Just realize that talking about these or other sensitive topics can make others feel unwelcome, or perhaps even unsafe, if approached in an aggressive or insulting manner. We expect our Community members to be respectful when discussing sensitive topics.
Bullying and harassment. We do not tolerate bullying or harassment. This means any habitual badgering or intimidation targeted at a specific person or group of people. In general, if your actions are unwanted and you continue to engage in them, there's a good chance you are headed into bullying or harassment territory.
Impersonation. You may not impersonate another person by copying their avatar, posting content under their email address, intentionally using a deceptively similar username or otherwise posing as someone else. Impersonation is a form of harassment.
Doxxing and invasion of privacy. Don't post other people's personal information, such as phone numbers, private email addresses, physical addresses, credit card numbers, Social Security/National Identity numbers, or passwords. Depending on the context, such as in the case of intimidation or harassment, we may consider other information, such as photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject's consent, to be an invasion of privacy, especially when such material presents a safety risk to the subject.
Prurient/Sexually explicit content. Basically, don't post pornography. We also prohibit posts that contain or link to nudity or sexual content. If you have any questions or concerns about something you want to post, feel free to reach out and ask beforehand.
Spam. Respect the forum. Don’t post advertisements, link to spammy websites, or otherwise vandalize the space. This forum is meant for Oak Moon Consulting clients and friends to discuss projects, learn, and share ideas with one another - not for advertising or other spam-like content. Content that we deem spammy will be removed.
Copyrighted or illegal content. Only post your own stuff. You are responsible for what you post. If you post something you didn’t create yourself, you must have the right to post it. You may not post illegal content, including content illegal under copyright and trademark laws, links to illegal content, or methods for circumventing the law.
Active malware or exploits. Being part of this forum includes not taking advantage of other members of the community. Bottom line: malware and other exploitative technology is prohibited.
Anyone under the age of 13. If you're a child under the age of 13, you may not have an account on the Oak Moon Consulting Forum or with Oak Moon Consulting. Oak Moon Consulting does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 13, we will unfortunately have to close both your accounts with us. We don't want to discourage you from learning to code, but those are the rules. Please see our Terms of Service.
Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting. The Oak Moon Consulting Forum is a professional space and should be treated as such.
What Oak Moon Consulting Community Forum Members Can Do
If you see a problem, report it. Moderators have special authority; they are responsible for the forum. But so are you. With your help, moderators can be forum facilitators, not just janitors or police.
When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. It encourages the bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy, and wastes everyone’s time. Just report it to email@example.com. If enough reports accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.
Response and Consequences
There are a variety of actions that we may take in response to 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. We'll review each situation 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. We reserve the discretion to take appropriate action as circumstances may require.
Actions we may take in response to a flag or abuse report include, but are not limited to:
Forum Account Suspension
Forum Account Termination
If, for any reason, you want to contact Oak Moon Consulting staff, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's work together to keep the forum a place where people feel safe to participate by being respectful of them and their time.
Additional Legal Notices

This Code of Conduct does not modify our Terms of Service and is not intended to be a complete list.
