Each community can appoint its own moderators and make its own separate decisions about what sort of content is allowed, but we should also likely think about an instance wide way of determining what sorts of content are and are not allowed and how moderation decisions are made. It’s not a problem yet, but I figure it can’t hurt to go ahead and get feedback from the community about what sorts of communities have good or bad moderation practices that we can emulate. What do others think?

Having a baseline document to refer to is definitely something I’d be in favour of. There are many examples of CoCs around that we can reuse/adapt to our use-case :)

One thing I like very much about this is the links below the short block of text to whoever can act on this. While we find out what we’re gonna put as CoC, we should probably work out who can do anything about it. Admins? a specific team? appointed by who? who can replace them? Can they dismiss any admins? etc.

https://www.contributor-covenant.org/ seems relatively good and could be adapted later if it’s not meeting our needs; maybe it’s worth just linking that somewhere to start?

If no one else has opinions, I’m going to go ahead and link this from the sidebar as a temporary measure. Moderation policy should still be chatted about though.
