Hi friends. I just wanted to write a quick note sharing that Puzzled Pint now has an official Code of Conduct. We previously had a private one, moderating online communication between Game Control members, but thought that as Puzzled Pint continues to grow (we reached over 3500 players this month!), we should have one that is public.
What does this mean to you? Probably nothing. We have always strived to be an inclusive event, and nothing about that has changed. We’ve finally written down our feelings and informal policy into something a little more formal.
We’re open to constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement, especially from minorities who might be most impacted by the CoC. Most of the Code of Conduct policies out there in the world are for centralized in-person events, online communities, and collaborative online projects. There seem to be none aimed at distributed volunteer-run events such as Puzzled Pint. We could be wrong, but it feels like Puzzled Pint is the first such Code of Conduct document. We think we did a good job drafting it, but are open to refining it over time, if it becomes necessary.
But — please, take a moment to look it over, take it in, and help us make Puzzled Pint a better and more inclusive space.
