Gravity aims to establish a culture of voluntary compliance around the TEC agreements. It proposes the recognition and application of conflict management mechanisms to shape harmonious interactions between the members of its community.
@JuankBell is leading the Gravity working group and the Graviton Training. The training is happening now for the first time and will be offered 3 times a year with the intention to form Gravitons - the team of individuals equipped with knowledge and social tooling to address and mediate emerging conflicts or any uncomfortable situations in the best way possible.
All the Graviton names and contacts will be listed here. Meanwhile you can contact @JuankBell and @liviade.
Everyone in the community can fill the Gravity typeform or approach any of the Gravitons to request support for conflicts and any sort of uncomfortable or undesired situations.
In case of conflict, Gravitons can approach the parties involved to collect information on the issues.
Gravitons can take actions to regulate unwanted behavior according to the graduated sanctions.
All community members can propose new methodologies to approach graduated sanctions and mutual monitoring as well as upgrade current ones through Advice Process and Forum Voting.
Gravitons can submit conflicts or issues to the Gravity Registry, that is a database of the cases managed by Gravity.
Conflict resolution calls and chats are closed to Gravitons and parties involved to respect privacy and vulnerability.
The Gravity working group can host training and capacitate individuals to become Gravitons.
The Gravity training is free and open for all.
Gravity can remove proposals from all the voting categories if they receive flags and/or are seen as harmful for the community based on our rules, boundaries, T&C’s and Code of Conduct.
