The Community Advocates team will contribute to enforce the GitLab Code of Conduct on GitLab.com, to ensure we keep a positive, welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone to contribute.
Currently, the Advocates team will engage in moderation if there is a discussion (generally on an issue or on a Merge Request) that requires urgent or a significant volume of moderation.
Advocates should always use the GitLab Conduct GitLab account when moderating instead of their personal accounts to provide anonymity while moderating. The login information can be found in the Marketing vault in 1Password.
As a further refinement, the e-mails sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org will be added to the Community Advocates' Zendesk instance on the next iteration of this process.
As part of their charter, the Abuse Operations team will often detect and hand over CoC violations to the Community Advocates team. Generally discussions on a particular case will happen on a confidential issue, but we can also contact the Abuse Operations team members directly.
Please use these templates to replace public comments that violate the CoC.
You can use this template to move over the original public comment's content to the private issue opened for moderation.
