 *Respect and observe the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. = Objectives =
## Hopefully it's never needed, but a more specific conduct page is found by using '/Conduct' as the link (as in: [[/Conduct|Conduct Page]])
 * Encourage respect and observation of the [[https://launchpad.net/codeofconduct/1.0.1| Ubuntu Code of Conduct]] at all times
 * Answer all questions young new users have about Ubuntu
 * Assist with [[https://help.launchpad.net/BecomingAnUbuntero|signing the Code of Conduct]]
 * Help new users get a basic wiki page created
 * To help these users integrate with the Beginners Team and the Ubuntu Community as a whole

 *As in other environments, it is wise to "listen" first to get to know the culture of the group. = Join us =
Line 25: Line 33:
 *Don't badger other users for personal information such as sex, age, or location. After you have built an acquaintance with another user, these questions may be more appropriate, but many people hesitate to give this information to people with whom they are not familiar. Please join this group if you are between the ages of 13 and 18. To join all you need do is add your name to the member list shown above. Either [[Silver_Fox| Silver_Fox]] or [[forestpixie|forestpixie]] will be in contact with you shortly afterwards.
Line 27: Line 35:
 *It's not necessary to greet everyone on a channel or room personally. Usually one "Hello" or the equivalent is enough. Using the automation features of your client to greet people is not acceptable behavior. = Meetings =
The next meeting is '''TBA''' at '''16:00 UTC''' in channel '''#ubuntu-beginners-YNU''' on '''irc.freenode.net'''.
Line 29: Line 38:
 *If another user is using a nickname alias or pseudonym, respect that user's desire for anonymity. Even if you and that person are close friends, it is more courteous to use their nickname. Do not use that person's real name online without permission.

 *Remember that the people you interact with are human beings whose culture, language, and humor have different points of reference from your own. Remember that date formats, measurements, and idioms may not travel well. Be especially careful with sarcasm, infact try to avoid it.

 *Use smiley's to indicate tone of voice, but use them sparingly. Don't assume that the inclusion of a smiley will make the recipient happy with what you say or wipe out an otherwise insulting comment.

 *While it has its place do not use text speak in normal conversation all of the time. lol is okay, but ppl shldnt b tlkng lik dis all t3h time.
