Community Guidelines

Here are the rules of the road to be part of the Readocracy community:

  1. Be truthful. Don’t mislead, misdirect, or manipulate people or the platform. This includes trying to automate activity, spreading misinformation, or trying to use it as a sales channel.
  2. Contribute with respect, humility, and good intentions.
    1. No ad hominem attacks - neither against other users, nor the subjects of a discussion.
      Use reason. Name-calling is the lazy way out.
    2. Be open and thoughtful with new and different perspectives.
      Nothing is black and white. People and problems are nuanced.
    3. Try to understand, rather than judge, people, perspectives, and problems.
  3. Try to be helpful. We’re all in this together.
  4. Focus on better, not more. Quality over quantity.
  5. Recognize logical fallacies, and remember Occam’s razor.

Deliberately and consistently violating any of these points - especially 1. and 2. - will result in expulsion from all community features, and potentially expulsion from Readocracy as a whole (even solo features).

Conversely, exemplifying these points will get you recognized and rewarded. Readocracy = meritocracy.
