We recognize autonomy as the engine of ingenuity. That is why we never implement a rule without first asking how it may affect the game for others. Our team actively promotes a sense of rigorous self-discipline among our peers and community, yet encourages experimentation and flexibility. Some rules shouldn't be broken, but we've found that most are pretty bendy.
Great relationships are built on trust. Honesty is vital to establishing new contacts, and maintaining the trust that defines an enduring partnership. In a world of natural skepticism, we take transparency and forthrightness as our lodestars. We tell the truth in conversation with our users, partners, and peers—even when it's difficult.
We believe that human interactions must originate from a place of careful attenuation. Empathetic humility is the first-stage ablution that fosters understanding between ourselves and everyone we address. Only by respecting our disparate identities and values can we accentuate everyone's contributions.
