A code of conduct is a document which sets out expectations for members of a community, with regard to how they will behave toward each other.

Effective codes of conductEdit

Important elements of an effective code of conduct include:

  • Specific descriptions of common but unacceptable behavior (sexist jokes, etc.)
  • Reporting instructions with contact information
  • Information about how it may be enforced

Codes of conduct which lack any one of these items tend not to have the intended effect. See HOWTO design a code of conduct for your community article for more information.
