Code of Conduct

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering a productive environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a productive and discrimination-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Rules

We are a dedicated bunch of people, working on Community Apps for TrueNAS SCALE.

  1. Keep the chat somewhat friendly - You can be an jerk, just don't go on a rampage.
  2. Keep things on-topic and arguments to designated channels - Check channel descriptions and pins for channel-specific rules
  3. No trolling - This includes feigning idiocy and “shitposting”. Keeping chat light-hearted and fun is one thing. However, moronic behavior, false information and shitposting will not be tolerated.
  4. No spamming - No link, text, or ASCII spam; no giant walls of text/links; and no all CAPS posts.
  5. No NSFW/NSFL content outside of designated channels- This includes your avatar.
  6. Use appropriate usernames - No blank names, no long names, no URLs, no emojis and no character breaking names.
  7. No begging - This includes soft begging.
  8. No advertising - No referral links. No buying/selling/trading.
  9. Comply to the platform ToS and Community Guidelines
  10. If you ask for support, please always add as much information as you can - Screenshots, Logs etc. are needed to help you!
  11. We expect some basic research first. Specifically: try to find related information in our Announcements, our Docs, the TrueNAS forum and/or TrueNAS Docs.
  12. Keep personal feedback private. Got issues with someone? Send them a private message instead!
  13. Encounter an App not working as expected? You can directly file a bug on our Github, no need to verify with anyone!

If you see something against the rules or something that makes you feel unsafe, let the Moderators know or us the contact information under Enforcement.

Our Responsibilities

Project maintainers and moderators are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Project maintainers and moderators have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project team at [email protected] All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.


Everyone has the right to appeal a Ban decision. Appeals can be submitted by contacting the project team at [email protected] Appeals will always be processed by a maintainer or moderator that was not involved in the original decision or, in case all moderators where involved, by a majority decision of staff.
