On create.mouse.org, every registered user is a trusted member of the global Mouse Network. This honor comes with responsibility. Mouse Create is rated "L" for Leaders: this means that, first and foremost, you alone are responsible for your participation on Mouse Create. What you post is a reflection on you, your group, your site, and the Mouse Network.
As with any network, you should think seriously before posting, commenting, uploading or adding to Mouse Create in any way. Ask yourself these simple questions:
- Is what I'm about to post appropriate for ALL audiences?
- Is it a positive reflection on me and my group?
- Does it fit the Mouse Create standard: to advance the learning and growth of all members?
- Is it responsible and respectful?
If your answer is "No" to any of these questions, then we encourage you to take it offline. Instead, write your thoughts and feelings down as a personal journal entry, and look back on it in a year to determine whether it was a good idea.
Remember, every contribution you make to create.mouse.org is subject to the scrutiny of your Mouse network peers (all of them). These peers (thousands) are all:
- extremely smart
- intolerant of negativity
- open to helpful feedback
- on a mission to better themselves and their communities.
In the event that you post content that Mouse HQ or your group leader decides is inappropriate for create.mouse.org, Mouse will:
- remove the post
- send an email to you and your group leader that your account has been flagged for improper use
Should your account come to attention more than once for breaking the rules above, it will be deleted from Mouse Create. Your group leader will then take action to review whether your status as a member of your Mouse group should be revoked.
We trust the members of our network to make good judgements about the content they post online, but it's important that we set some standards for how everyone behaves on Mouse Create. If you come across a post that you feel violates the agreements above, feel free to remind your fellow Mouse members about the Code of Conduct, or notify firstname.lastname@example.org.
