Good guidelines for a community

Hello, it’s @png again. I’d like a template for guidelines for a community I’m going to make soon. I’ve been think of some for little while but it hasn’t been looking too good compared to other community forums :sweat_smile:

Thanks, @png

Have you taken a look at our guidelines? Is there anything specific you feel like you’re missing compared to other communities?

For our community, I started out with the Discourse guidelines, but shortened them notably, so there’s just 3 headlines in plain sight:

  • Improve the discussion
  • Be respectful
  • Stay on topic

(Guidelines - Couchers.org Community)

I also like how dev.to structured their code of conduct with 3 straightforward statements:

  • Our pledge
  • Our standards
  • Enforcement

(DEV Community Code of Conduct)
