Code of Conduct

The Godot project is an international community open to everyone without discrimination. We want this community to be a safe and welcoming place for both newcomers and current members. Everyone should feel comfortable and accepted regardless of their personal background and affiliation to the Godot project.

Philosophy

In the Godot community, participants from all over the world come together to create a Free and Open Source game engine. This is made possible by the support, hard work, and enthusiasm of thousands of people who collaborate towards the common goal of creating great technology and games. Cooperation at such a scale requires common guidelines to ensure a positive and inspiring atmosphere in the community.

This is why we have this Code of Conduct: it explains the type of community we want to have. The rules below are not applied to all interactions with a simple matching algorithm. Human interactions happen in context and are complex. Perceived violations are evaluated by real humans who will try to interpret the interactions and the rules with kindness. Accordingly, there is no need to hypothesize on how these rules would affect normal interactions. Be reasonable, the Code of Conduct team surely will be as well.

Application

This Code of Conduct applies to all users and contributors who engage with the Godot project and its community platforms, both online and at Godot-related events.

Expectations

Restricted conduct

Participating in restricted conduct will lead to a warning from community moderators and/or the Code of Conduct team and may lead to exclusion from the community in the form of a ban from one or all platforms.

Reporting a breach

If you witness or are involved in an interaction with another community member that you think may violate this Code of Conduct, please contact Godot's Code of Conduct team.

The Godot team recognizes that it can be difficult to come forward in cases of a violation of the Code of Conduct. To make it easier to report violations, we provide a single point of contact via email at: conduct@godotengine.org. If you are more comfortable reaching out to a single person, you are also welcome to contact one or more members of the team using their personal emails listed below, or via direct messaging on community platforms where they are present.
