By joining ODI Members Slack, you are agreeing to these guidelines:

ODIMembers Slack workspace is not a pre-moderated forum. Our policy is to keep intervention to a minimum and leave ODI Members to conduct conversations amongst themselves.

That said, we want to keep this as a friendly, relevant and useful space for discussion, so, where necessary, we will use our discretion to delete posts (or ban posters) if it seems to us that doing so is in keeping with this aim.

We do have a few forum rules to make sure we keep the ODI Members Slack workspace a supportive, friendly and inclusive place to meet others:

  • No personal attacks
  • No posts that break the law
  • No trolling, misleading or deliberately inflammatory behaviour
  • No trollhunting
  • No spamming

You can report any of the above to us by sending a direct message or email to Hannah Foulds or Julie McMahon in the channel, linking directly to the post.

Remember, we do not pre-moderate posts. We rely on our members to let us know about any posts that break our guidelines.

How we use your data

We will not share posts or user information with any third parties. Read the ODI’s privacy policy

Slack’s privacy policy can be found here: https://slack.com/intl/en-gb/privacy-policy

Post deletions

We’re all for freedom of speech. However, we’ll remove posts we consider to contain personal attacks, to break the law and/or to be obscene, racist, sexist, disablist, ageist, homophobic or transphobic, once they are brought to our attention. We will also delete any posts that we think are just seriously unpleasant (please note that any subsequent posts repeating the words in the deleted post may be deleted, too).

 Swearwords and offensive language

It’s not our policy to delete swearwords, but we do draw the line at obscenity, racist, ageist, disablist, homophobic or transphobic language.

Posting links and spamming

We’re happy for you to share links to events, news and new services from your organisation, but if your posts appear to be spamming the workspace with repeated or irrelevant messaging, we will delete the posts.

 Trolls and troublemakers

If you suspect someone of being a troll, please report your suspicions to us and we’ll check them out. The ODIMembers workspace is invite-only, so the risk of this is low.

Removing users

If you post an offensive message or repeatedly misuse the Slack workspace, we have the right to remove you from the workspace. We will, where appropriate, warn you of your misuse, but we have the right to suspend you without warning if we’re concerned about your input.

If you have any questions, send them to hannah.foulds@theodi.org
