Thank you for working on this!
I want the Alpine community to be a friendly and welcoming community
and I want that people who read the CoC should sense that. So I don't
want that people should read the CoC as "IF YOU DON'T BEHAVE WE WILL
KICK OUT!", but at the same time we need to communicate what we expect
It is a bit like dresscode. If you are invited to a dinner or event you
may wonder how you should dress. If you read "If you don't come with
this and this color and wear a tie we will kick you out!", then I'd
think "oh boy... whats this?"
I think the proposed CoC is good in that sense. It is presented
friendly but at the same time make it clear what is expected.
I wouldn't mind if we added "Be forgiving".
Other than that, good job! I'm glad that someone who native English
speaking does this and I'm glad that you are taking the previous
proposals in consideration.
