git repo including mirrors (on github, gitea, etc)
Any official accounts of the Lemmy project, for example the Mastodon account or the Liberapay account
Changes to these rules
We use the following process: anyone who is active around Lemmy can recommend any other active person to join the council. This has to be approved by a majority of the council.
Active users are defined as those who contribute to Lemmy in some way for at least an hour per week on average, doing things like reporting bugs, discussing rules and features, translating, promoting, developing, or doing other things that aim to improve Lemmy as a whole.
-> people should have joined at least a month ago.
The member list is public.
Note: we would like to have a process where community members can elect candidates for the council, but this is not realistic because a single user could easily create multiple accounts and cheat the vote.
Limit growth to one new member per month at most.
Inactive members should be removed from the council after a few months of inactivity, and after receiving a notification about this.
Members that dont follow binding council decisions should be removed.
Any member can be removed in a vote.
We encourage the membership of groups such as LGBT, religious or ethnic minorities, abuse victims, etc etc, and strive to create a safe space for them to express their opinions. We also support measures to increase participation by the previously mentioned groups.
The following are banned, and will always be harshly punished: fascism, abuse, racism, sexism, etc etc,
A private Matrix chat for all council members.
(Once private communities are done) A private community on dev.lemmy.ml for issues.
