RAF662 Code of Conduct

RAF662 CFSG membership comes with significant responsibilities.  Among those are the responsibility to abide by a code of online conduct.  We expect our members to uphold high standards, and to hold each other and even our guests accountable to these standards.  We always strive to make our online community a fun, open and welcoming experience for  all.

The ease and anonymity which online communications affords us should not be taken for granted, nor is it any excuse for bad behavior.  In fact, the opposite holds - we need to work extra hard to exhibit exemplary online behaviors and be consciously aware of how we are perceived online.   This code applies equally to founders, members and even our guests. 

This includes our own RAF662 site and forums, other groups online sites and forums, member email, the online voice Comms arena, and any online resources you use while representing the RAF662 CFSG.  In addition, violations of this code outside these spaces as well may even affect a person's ability to participate within them.

Violations of this code will be taken under consideration by site/group moderators and the Air Council quickly, and may result in member warning, request for apology, suspension or even expulsion.    

If you believe someone is violating the code of conduct, we ask that you report it by private forum mailing (PM) to one of the RAF_ officers, a member of the Air Council, or by emailing:  daddyo@raf662.org.  

Member Expectations

Member Behaviors

Moderation

These are the policies for upholding our community's standards of conduct in our communication channels, most notably in our online forums, website and online radio (Teamspeak or other Comms).

  1. Remarks that violate the code of conduct, including hateful, hurtful, oppressive, or exclusionary remarks, are not allowed.
  2. Cursing is frowned upon!  Yes, it does happen, but we expect members to correct each other, and to understand that everyone does not always find it funny, useful or inclusionary.   Learn to react and say useful things instead!  Under no circumstances will it be tolerated if it is targeting another user, and never in a hateful manner.
  3. Remarks that moderators find inappropriate, whether listed in the code of conduct or not, are also not allowed.
  4. Moderators will first respond to such remarks with a warning.
  5. If the warning is unheeded, the user will be "kicked," i.e., kicked out of the communication channel to cool off.
  6. If the user comes back and continues to make trouble, they may face being banned, i.e., indefinitely excluded.
  7. Moderators may choose at their discretion to un-ban the user if it was a first offense and they offer the offended party a genuine apology.
  8. If a moderator bans someone and you think it was unjustified, please take it up with that moderator, or with a different moderator, in private. Complaints about bans in-channel are not allowed.
  9. Moderators are held to a higher standard than other community members. If a moderator creates an inappropriate situation, they should expect less leeway than others.

In the RAF662 CFSG community we strive to go the extra mile to look out for each other. Try to be your best self and an example to others.  In particular, avoid flirting with offensive or sensitive issues, particularly if they're off-topic; this all too often leads to unnecessary fights, hurt feelings, and damaged trust; worse, it can drive people away from our group entirely.

We are all here first and foremost because we want to have fun online.
