All members of the ChangeLight Community are required to abide by these...
Our #1 responsibility is to ensure that ChangeLight is a safe, supportive space for everyone. With that in mind, below are our community guidelines, by which we expect all members to abide.
When you join our community,
you are also agreeing to these guidelines.
Respect. Healthy relationships require healthy boundaries. Therefore, always communicate with courtesy, professionalism, and respect. When in doubt, ask questions. Listen without prejudice. Seek to understand. Be open and curious about others' viewpoints, and respectfully disagree when opinions do not align. Never tell someone what to think nor how to feel.
Non-judgment. Judgment is a poison that we far too often inflict on ourselves and others and is often what created our wounds in the first place. We are all in different places in our lives and have different backgrounds and struggles. What we all have in common is our commitment to doing inner work for greater good. Everyone here is working to make themselves and our world better. Therefore, in all of your interactions in this community, always err on the side of non-judgment.
Privacy. Never share anyone's personal posts, drawings, or other content without their written permission. Respect everyone's privacy and personal information, just as you expect them to do for you. If you desire to share a story or anecdote from the community with someone outside of the community, abide by the Chatham House Rule: "Participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed." By abiding by this rule, we can all enjoy open discussions with one another, knowing that our identities and affiliations will be kept private.
NO criticism of nor personal attacks on others
NO defamatory remarks or false statements against others
NO hate speech, harassment, bullying, discrimination, inflammatory remarks, or other targeted attacks
NO soliciting, fundraising, or spamming of any kind
NO unauthorized use of content
If you violate any of these guidelines once, you will receive one warning. If you violate any of them a second time, we will enact consequences, which could include expulsion from the community without a refund.
