Community Code of Conduct

Neon One is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

This code of conduct applies to all Neon One spaces, including community forums, email, social media, virtual conferences and webinars, and other events where people gather and communicate together, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Neon One. This document is meant to enhance the existing Terms of Service that all Neon One customers and partners agree to when entering into a relationship with our company.

Some Neon One spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.

Harassment includes:

  • Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, age, race, or religion.
  • Unwelcome comments regarding a person’s lifestyle choices and practices, including those related to food, health, parenting, drugs, and employment.
  • Deliberate misgendering or use of ‘dead’ or rejected names.
  • Physical contact and simulated physical contact without consent or after a request to stop.
  • Threats of violence.
  • Incitement of violence towards any individual, including encouraging a person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm.
  • Deliberate intimidation.
  • Stalking or following.
  • Harassing photography or recording, including logging online activity for harassment purposes.
  • Sustained disruption of discussion.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Pattern of inappropriate social contact, such as requesting/assuming inappropriate levels of intimacy with others
  • Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease.
  • Deliberate “outing” of any aspect of a person’s identity without their consent except as necessary to protect vulnerable people from intentional abuse.
  • Publication of non-harassing private communication.

  • Be Respectful: Always treat others with kindness and respect. Keep discussions professional and constructive. Avoid making personal attacks or offensive remarks.
  • Stay on Topic: Each channel has a specific purpose. Make sure your messages are relevant to the topic of the channel you’re posting in.
  • Use Emojis and Reactions Appropriately: Emojis and reactions can be a fun way to express yourself, but make sure to use them in a professional and respectful manner.
  • Listen and Learn: Be open to other viewpoints and always seek to learn from the discussions. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you don’t understand something.
  • Keep it Brief: Slack is meant for quick, concise communication. Try to keep your messages brief and to the point.
  • No Outside Vendors: Any technology or service provider not formally a Neon One partner may be removed from the community without cause to maintain the integrity of our ecosystem.
  • Use Direct Messages for Personal Conversations: If you need to have a one-on-one conversation with someone, use direct messages rather than public channels.
  • Avoid Spam: Don’t post the same message in multiple channels. Avoid excessive self-promotion or off-topic discussions. This includes but is not limited to unsolicited Direct Messages to community members.
  • Use Threads: If you’re responding to a specific message, use threads to keep the conversation organized and avoid cluttering the main channel.
  • Respect Availability: If someone is marked as away or do not disturb, respect their status and avoid sending them unnecessary messages.
  • Share Constructively: Share resources and information that are helpful and relevant to the community.
  • Acknowledge and Give Credit: When someone helps you or provides useful information, acknowledge them. Giving credit where it’s due fosters a healthy, collaborative environment.
  • Ask for Help Respectfully: When asking for help, provide as much context as possible and ask your question in a respectful and considerate manner.


If you experience harassment or discrimination in a Neon One space, notice that someone else is experiencing harassment or discrimination, or have any other concerns, please contact Neon One via a direct or anonymous report.

Direct reports can be made by messaging Neon One at [email protected] or, if on-site, by contacting an Neon One staff member.

Anonymous reports can be made here on this form. We won’t be able to follow up with you directly, but we will fully investigate it and take whatever action is necessary to prevent a recurrence.


Participants asked to stop any inappropriate behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in inappropriate behavior, Neon One may take any action they deem appropriate, including warnings or expulsion from all Neon One spaces with no refund. Adapted from the Geek Feminism Code of Conduct and NTEN Code of Conduct.
