Community norms are the set of behaviours expected in a community, based on the community's Values, Traditions, Policies, etc.

How community norms are formed Edit

  • The early membership of a community (the founder and first handful of members) will most often set community norms, either explicitly or implicitly
  • Community norms are handed down to new members as they join, or as incidents arise which violate those norms
  • A too-sudden influx of new members can cause this transmission of norms to break
