Community participation principles

In the true spirit of UX, we want to create our community participation principles together. We'll be starting a thread soon on our mailing list to discuss this and will keep this wiki updated with drafts!

In the meantime, we have two foundational principles to guide us:

  • The Mozilla Community Participation Guidelines
    • Mozilla's Community Participation Guidelines cover our behavior as members of the Mozilla Community, in Mozilla-related forums, mailing lists, wikis, web sites, IRC channels, bugs, events, public meetings or person to person Mozilla-related correspondence. As such, they also apply to the Mozilla UX Community we're creating.
  • Be nice to people!
    • Let's commit to creating a community that people want to belong in and they feel safe being open in.
