Open Collective:

Contributing through Open Collective is a condition of membership, so applicants must have an existing Open Collective profile, which can be set up here.

Code of Conduct:

New members must also agree to our Code of Conduct and must be over the age of consent.

I am over 18, and have read, understood and agree to the terms of use and engagement as written in the Code of Conduct. A summary of the code is below; please be sure to review the full Code via the link.

The Code of Conduct is a living document that outlines acceptable behaviour when members use Social.coop Mastodon, Loomio, the Wiki, the Matrix chat rooms, and all other spaces governed by the co-op. Social.coop adopts the “co-op values”: self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. Our members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others. We also follow the rest of the ICA co-op principles.

We welcome anyone able to use our services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, regardless of qualities such as gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, age, race, nationality, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, family structure, spirituality, religion (or lack thereof), education, or other personal traits.

We particularly celebrate diversity and do not tolerate bigotry, prejudice or supremacy of any kind. Diverse opinions on politics, religion, and other matters are welcome as long as they align with our core values. Let there be no confusion, Social.Coop is anti-racist, anti-fascist, and anti-transphobic. Moderators will take action on posts that contravene this Code of Conduct.
