Our OSUWebComm Slack community is 75 members strong (2017 edit: 196! 2019 edit: 395!!!), and is a good resource for people looking to connect with web people around the university, share announcements, events and tips, and generally to improve our working day.

Because of its popularity, governance, expectations, and community values should be articulated. Not because bad behavior is rampant, but to set expectations for a safe, fun environment and to provide a clear path in the case something happens. Thanks to the Vox Product Code of Conduct for providing a CoC roadmap.

Membership

Membership to the OSUWebComm Slack community is open to ANY employee (faculty, staff, courtesy) of Oregon State University or an associated group of Oregon State University (such as a foundation or nonprofit) who has an interest in communicating better on the Internet.

Right now students of Oregon State University are allowed to join on a case-by-case basis.

Employees who are also students are welcome to join.

At this time, membership is open to anyone with an oregonstate.edu or osufoundation.org email address.

Values

The OSUWebComm Slack Community is a safe, fun place for all of our members, and we want to keep it that way. Respect, sharing, and teamwork are values we believe in, and that should be applied across the OSUWebComm community.

Expected Behaviors

  • Offer criticism and feedback in an honest, respectful, and kind way.
  • Be supportive and offer guidance when requested. The value in our community is everyone’s participation.

Unacceptable Behaviors

  • Any behavior that would fall under Oregon State University’s Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment Policy guidelines.
  • Not providing feedback in a constructive, actionable way.

Outcomes

The OSUWebComm admins can revoke the membership of any member, at any time. Admins will contact that member and explain why he or she is losing membership.

Above All

Have fun, and use the community in whatever way works for you. Make fun of products – Banner – but don’t make fun of people.

Have a question? Direct message or email any of the OSU WebComm community admins.
