Code of conduct
Exoplanet-talks.org is dedicated to provide a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices.
We expect users to communicate with respect for others, complementing or critiquing ideas rather than individuals. This applies to the uploaded videos as well as the discussion threads. When in doubt, there is also an option to send private comments to the presenter, which may sometimes be more appropriate, e.g. in the case of strong critique on the presentation of an early career scientist. Be nice. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Sexual language and imagery are strictly forbidden.
Uploaded presentations need to be relevant to exoplanet science. Graphs, figures or other images that are not your own need to be properly acknowledged and/or referenced. All videos can be viewed by both registered and non-registered users, but only registered users can upload videos to exoplanet-talks.org and take part in discussions. Only active scientists affiliated to a research institute/university can register with their institute email account. It is not allowed to forward access information to people who are not accepted as registered users.
The submitter of a presentation remains to be 100% owner of the video and its discussion thread, and is completely free to remove any parts or aspects of it as they wish, at any time – without reason. Users violating the rules above may have their access removed at the discretion of the exoplanet-talks.org team.
Need help or wish to file a complaint? You can contact the team by email: email@example.com. This email account can be viewed by all team members. Alternatively, in the case of sensitive subjects, one can also contact the head of the platform personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
