Rules & Code of Conduct

The first rule of the Build Challenge, is to have fun building.
This event is a community build-a-thon intended for collaboration and learning. We value the participation of each member and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.
Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the duration of the build challenge. To make clear what is expected, all attendees and other participants at this build challenge are required to conform to the following Rules & Code of Conduct - Organizers will enforce this code throughout the duration of event.
Rules on Submissions
  • Each Avatar will be evaluated to meet a minumum level of quality, at the discretion of Mona.
  • Spaces must be submitted to Mona as .VRM file format, using a submission form.
  • Avatars must not be minted as an NFT until after the prizes are awarded.
  • If Avatars uses purchased or premade assets, you must disclose these upon submission.

Rules on Pre-existing Work

Each build submission will be judged solely on the quality of the work completed during the duration of the build challenge.
If you use pre-existing NFTs or Art in your project, you need to disclose all information in your submission. If, upon inspection, you present work that appears to have been completed before the build challenge began that you did not disclose, you will need to explicitly point out how your new work differs from old work.

Code of Conduct

Monaverse events are places for creative collaboration, learning, and sharing. We have a zero-tolerance policy for harassment and other negative behaviour at our events.
  • "Harassment" includes but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments or other online activity related to gender, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, physical appearance, race, religion, sexual images, deliberate intimidation, stalking, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. If participants fail to comply they will be banned from all channels and access to the event.
  • Sponsors, judges, mentors, volunteers, organizers, Mona staff and anyone else at the event are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, attendees should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material both in their builds and during the event.
  • Be careful and mindful of the words that you choose at all times. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary comments and hacks can be offensive to those around you.
  • If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the build-a-thon organizers will take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expelling them from the event.
  • If you feel uncomfortable or think there may be a potential violation of the code of conduct, please report it immediately to one of the event organizers.
The IPFS community has its own Code of Conduct, which we expect hackers to follow when participating in Mona challenges and generally in the Mona discord or other online communities.
