EntangledQuery Code of Conduct
Overview and Purpose
EntangledQuery is devoted to create an open, inclusive and global Q&A platform for quantum developers, through continuous improvement and enforcement of our code of conduct.
The purpose of the code of conduct is to ensure a safe, respectful and welcoming environment for all individuals in this platform, regardless of roles, personal identities and level of expertise. By participating in EntangledQuery, you are agreeing to comply with the code of conduct by entangledquery.com.
Always be courteous.
Mutual respect is the foundation for building an inclusive community.
When posting, be concise, constructive and fact-based.
Be considerate to others’ time and efforts for reading through your contents. Concise，constructive and fact-based communications can improve the efficiency of the whole community.
When reading, be open to different opinions and exercise your right to upvote good contents.
Only through the collective intelligence of the community, we can make EntangledQuery a better place than when it was founded.
Good behaviors can foster a strong community. Below is an incomplete list of behavior standards that serves as a collection of examples to interpret the community values for the judgement between good and unacceptable behaviors.
Be considerate, not condescending.
Participants of EntangledQuery are from various nationalities, educational background and all levels of expertise. Not everyone is fluent in English, and certainly none of us speaks native quantum language. Try to understand others and ask for clarity if necessary.
Good example: Provide comprehensive answers, or point others to relevant references with respectful language.
Bad example: “This is an entry-level question. You could simply go read the source code.”
Break down the problem, not complicate it.
Some problems could be convoluted. Help break them down into simple, easy-to-understand pieces, instead of making them more complicated.
Good example: “This question is related to two aspects: 1) the randomness in the quantum state measurement; 2) the errors from the quantum computer. Here is my understanding.”
Bad example: “This problem is discussed in the following papers. You should take a look.”
Focus on the contents, not the person.
We welcome participants from various social background and personal identity, regardless of age, personal appearance, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, body size, nationality, race, religion, caste, or sexual identity and orientation. For everyone to feel equal and welcomed, the best approach is to be content centric. Do not use terms which make others feel personal. We do not tolerate any type of harassment.
