READ ME FIRST: Welcome Message / Code of Conduct

Hello and welcome to the Realmac Software Forum, so glad you could join us!

The Realmac forum is the best place to get official advice and updates on using your favourite web design software, RapidWeaver! There are also plenty of fellow weavers here who are always willing to help out.

Remember to be polite and kind when posting, this is a friendly community, foul language and abusive behaviour will not be tolerated. See our code of conduct below for clarification.

With that out of the way, please sign-up, join the community, and have fun! :grinning:

Happy Weaving!


Forum Code of Conduct

All participants of the Realmac Forum are expected to abide by our Code of Conduct.

The Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we pledge to make participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

This forum and related platforms are meant to be a happy place where we discuss coffee, technology, and related topics.

It’s meant to be a community that’s fun to be in, not divisive, where we unite around our common interests.

As such, we generally avoid divisive topics such as politics, gender, religion and nationality unless directly related to our common interest in coffee. There are lots of places where those conversations can be had, so we don’t need to talk about them here.

If there’s one cardinal rule, it’s “never be disrespectful”.

Below you’ll find some examples and explanations of what we think is not ok.

However, if you guide yourself along the general rules of being respectful and avoiding divisive topics, you’ll find Diaspora to be a lot of fun and we hope you’ll get a lot out of it.

The Standards

Examples of behaviour that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  • Attributing other peoples work
  • Respecting different cultural backgrounds and preferences
  • Teaching others without expecting absolute agreement
  • Referring to people by their preferred pronouns and using gender-neutral pronouns when uncertain

All reports will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances.
