Goblin Artisans Harassment Policy

Goblin Artisans is a community — a safe space where we can brainstorm freely, ask 'dumb' questions, and share 'wild' ideas. Everyone is welcome to join in the conversation, and to learn and grow as designers with us.

As with all creative work, critical feedback is necessary to the improvement of our designs and to our skills in general, and so we value constructive criticism of our own and each others' work. But even as designers learn to thicken their skin and disassociate negative observations about their work from attacks upon our identity, we remain human and our emotional well-being can be fragile.

With that in mind, it is vital that each member of this community treat others with respect. It can be easy to forget people's feelings online, and impossible to gauge their true intent or response. We must remember our humanity, and never belittle, other, or insult. Please take care in how you express yourself, and be prepared to apologize and forgive.

Anyone who callously disregards the emotional well-being of others will be suspended or banned.

We will not tolerate bigotry in any form, including sexism, racism, ableism, elitism, or discrimination based on gender or sexuality.
