Talk:Code of Conduct

Proposed amendment: Ban on soliciting tech support for hate groups

Ladsgroup (talkcontribs)

In accordance with CoC's amendment policy. The committee proposes an amendment on behalf of one of the community members to be added in unacceptable behavior section:

Soliciting help, support or technical assistance for websites whose predominant activity or content is behaviour that explicitly and significantly violates provisions of the code of conduct is forbidden in Wikimedia technical spaces. For example, websites advocating violence or hate speech are not welcome to ask for support on Wikimedia support forums.

This is similar to w:en:Wikipedia:No Nazis

Why is this necessary?

There was a discussion about whether or not it was within the rules for the operators of to ask for assistance on Project:Support_desk. The general conclusion was there is currently nothing in the rules forbidding that. It then lead to a discussion on whether or not that should be the case.

Relatedly, not quite the same thing, but a little bit similar, phab:T323956 happened a little while ago as well about whether WikiMANNia's extensions should be indexed.

This comment is really not helping your case.

Your comment does not help anyone, but supports new emerging fascist movements.

Hi, member of CoCC here, comparing other editors with Nazis is an explicitly defined type of personal attack and won't be tolerated. As such, we deemed the above comment inappropriate and in violation of CoC and removed them. This also serves as a warning to @WikiForMen to avoid making such remarks in the future.
