Just some rough thoughts:
  • No distribution of chatterbox logs.

    I would say "no logging", but how would we enforce it?

  • No "Do my homework" questions.

    Asking for how to approach a homework problem would be okay.

  • No profanity directed at anyone.

    I don't mind a little $#it every now and then, but if that's directed at someone, then it's out of bounds.

  • Removal of nodes posted solely as an assault?

    This one could be tricky and I know that many monks might disagree as to what characterizes an assault. Examples of this would be this post and this one, both assaults on merlyn.

  • Don't use published code without citing it.

    Again, tough to enforce. Many of us can smell the Cookbook a mile away, but what about someone "borrowing" a coworkers code? This would be an honor system issue.

  • No downvoting of Ovid's posts.

    Okay, I don't think that will fly, but I had to try :)

I realize that not everyone would agree with the above sentiments, but I thought they could be a nice first shot.

Notice that I didn't include anything about discriminatory speech based on gender, race, religion, ethinicity, yada, yada, yada. While I like the thought of including that, how do we word it? I don't think censorship is necessarily an issue as vroom can do with the site as he sees fit, but some of the poetry out there clearly passes the line. When is it art and when is it discrimination?

Frankly, from what I've seen in the monastery, I don't feel that this is much of a problem, but the issue should at least be discussed.


Update: I forgot one very important point: What do we do if we have a repeat offender? Ban them? Well, we can't. Dock their XP? Some might not care. Ban their nick? Some might be attached to their nick, some might not. Ignore it?

In reply to (Ovid) Re: Development of the Perl Monks Code of Conduct by Ovid
in thread Development of the Perl Monks Code of Conduct by vroom

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
