Code of Conduct Policies

Moderation Policy

These are the policies for upholding our community’s rules and the code of conduct. If you want to report a situation that needs to be reviewed by our moderation team, please see our reporting guide.

  1. The Python Discord Code of Conduct and the Community Rules are enforced by the moderation team, which consists of users with the Moderators, Admins or Owners role on the Python Discord server.
  2. Behavior that moderators find inappropriate, whether listed in the code of conduct, the community rules, or not, is also not allowed.
  3. Complaints about moderation in-channel are not allowed. If a moderator takes an action or makes a decision you do not agree with, please send a Direct Message (DM) to ModMail from our Discord server.
  4. If you disagree with a moderation action or decision taken against you, you may appeal the action or decision by following the Appeal Procedure.
