Code of conduct

This Code of Conduct has been prepared to help designers create a safe, inclusive and engaging community here at NepalisWhoDesign. We are always working to make this community open and mutually beneficial for everyone.

We have democratized the community to great extents by allowing users full control of their profile; and we feel it’s necessary to make ourselves clear on what is allowed and what is not allowed in the community.

We still want to remain prescriptive in terms of where we stand and do not want to enforce any hard rules. However, inability to comply with the community Code of Conduct will result in various degrees of warnings, eventually leading to expulsion.

Be respectful

Always treat everyone with respect and value their opinion, even if you disagree. Engage in qualitative discourse and refrain from attacking anyone personally, or based on their origins or background.

Be original

We do not tolerate stolen content. If we see you’ve uploaded content that is not yours, we will simply remove it with a warning. We do not allow materials that you do not own or did not create, or infringes somebody else’s copyright.

Be yourself

By name, we are Nepalis Who Design. We’re not Agencies Who Design or Groups Who Design. So only personal profiles are accepted. We do not allow people to go by their company name and require a real name, and a real display pictures.

But there are some exceptions to this rule:

  • Logos, word-marks or labels as profile picture is not accepted
  • A photograph depicting yourself is highly recommended
  • However we are open to creative display pictures, illustrations that represent you or resemble you or figures that depict your being. Stock images or inanimate objects are display pictures are not accepted.

Be honest

Do not add information to that is untrue. Fake work experiences, content with deceitful intents or falsehoods is not acceptable. Do not impersonate somebody else and do not include unverifiable information.

If we suspect and ask for a proof (for example, a letter from your company to prove your work experience), you should be able to produce it.

Be proactive

Your profile is your identity. People will judge you based on how much effort you’ve put into making your profile rich in terms of quality of information. Remember potential employers might be looking at your profile, so make sure you leave a good first impression. Spend some time to craft a good profile.
