Guidelines
 
 
The only hard and fast rule of Noisebridge is '''be excellent to each other'''. Everything else is ''dicta''.
 
 
 
= Purpose =
 
 
 
* Noisebridge is a place for hacking, hackers, and learning to hack.
 
* Noisebridge operates by do-ocracy and consensus.
 
* The [[Noisebridge Vision]] describes what we are for, and what we are about.
 
 
 
= Disagreement =
 
 
 
* If you disagree with your fellow hacker it would be excellent to [[Conflict Resolution | work out your differences]] with them.
 
* If you cannot work out your differences one-on-one, it would be excellent to work out your differences through [[mediation]].
 
 
 
= Entrance and Membership =
 
 
 
* You do not need to be a member to hack at Noisebridge or participate in the community here.
 
* It is not excellent to admit someone to Noisebridge unless you are willing to take responsibility for their actions here.
 
* It is not excellent to use the resources of Noisebridge unless you are hacking or trying to actively participate in the community
 
* You can attempt to become a member of Noisebridge as described on the [[membership]] page.
 
 
 
= Conflict and Emergency =
 
* [[Conflict_Resolution]]
 
*We want Noisebridge to be a welcoming experience for everyone who visits.
 
*Please respect your fellow hackers by not disparaging them based on unfair grounds such as race, gender, sexual orientation, and disability; and by not making uninvited sexual comments toward others.
 
*If someone asks you to leave them alone or to otherwise stop a behavior that is directed toward them, please do so. Continued unwanted behavior directed toward another person is [[Harassment]].
 
*People who harass others or cause multiple complaints of disrespectful behavior may be asked to leave.
 
** It is excellent to do-ocratically remove someone who is disrupting Noisebridge, or dangerous.
 
*** If someone asks you to leave, it is generally better to leave and return at the next Tuesday [[Meeting|meeting]] than to refuse to leave.
 
*** If you remove someone like this, you should email [[mailinglist|noisebridge-discuss]], and raise it at the [[Meetings | next meeting]].
 
***If someone is removed from the space like this, they shouldn't return to the space except to work out the issue that resulted in their removal, either through [[mediation]], or by attending the [[Meetings | weekly meeting]].
 
 
 
= Do Not Want =
 
 
 
* [[Sleeping | Noisebridge is your hackerspace not your home]]. Do not live here.
 
* [[Harassment | Don't be creepy]]. Harassment is totally unacceptable, at any time.
 
* Conflict: [[Conflict_Resolution | Helpful hints on human interaction]].
 
 
 
= Why Publish These Standards =
 
 
 
It is important for regular users of the space to be aware of the purpose of Noisebridge. If people want to use the space and have no interest in or respect for hacking, this does not mean they are automatically unwelcome at Noisebridge, but they should thoroughly understand that their use of the space is tangential to its purpose and at the discretion of the membership and other stakeholders.
