COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Last updated September 21, 2022

The goals of this community are to push the wakesports community forward, to help maintain friendships and foster new connections, to build strong and mutually beneficial ties between all members, to promote goodwill in the community and to stimulate interest and enhance involvement through increased opportunities for engagement. In order to meet the goals of this community, it's important for members to feel like they are in a safe place that is populated by people with shared interests. As such, we request that you read and adhere to the guidelines that follow.

Be a positive force. If you have something positive and meaningful to contribute to a discussion, do it. If not, avoid the thread.

Share beta, avoid spray. The difference between beta and spray is whether information or advice is welcomed, and how it is delivered. Be cognizant of what others are looking for, offer your experience and advice with humility, and avoid condescension, judgment, and "policing." Be clear about what you are looking for in the community so others can respond and contribute appropriately.

Disagree respectfully. Just as there are many ways to enjoy wakesports, different points of view may be simultaneously valid and opposing. When we disagree, we do so respectfully, assume good, and appreciate that every member can create their own beta however distant it may seem to us.

Use messaging/email responsibly. These tools are intended to keep members in touch with one another, to help facilitate networking and to promote common interests.

No harassment. Harassment, including but not limited to hate speech, derogatory language, racism, sexism, intentional public embarrassment, and sexual harassment will not be tolerated.
