As a member of the Figma Community, we ask that you do not participate anonymously or with a pseudonym. This is a community where we encourage our members to represent themselves authentically, because we seek to foster open, honest, and supportive discussions with a wide variety of Figma customers, partners, and developers. We rely on our community members to notify us of behaviors that are inconsistent with this Code of Conduct.
Do not share confidential information. While we want the Figma Community to be open and transparent, it is not an appropriate forum for sharing confidential information of your company.
We encourage active participation from all segments of our population including partners, but please do not use the Figma Community for blatant promotion of products or services. Other community members may monitor the community in order to help keep it a trusted and useful environment, free of self-promotion and spam.
If you are being harassed by a member of the Figma community, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.
This Code of Conduct applies to Figma community spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of the Figma community outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by Figma community members seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from the Figma community based on their past behavior, including behavior outside of the Figma community spaces and behavior towards people who are not in the Figma community.
In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of the Figma community members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, we may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Figma community spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Figma community members or the general public.
